iTunes Gift balances

The entire amount of a gift is credited to your iTunes Store account when you redeem it, so you don't need to enter your gift card number or gift code each time you want to buy something.

View your credit balance

After you redeem iTunes Gift Cards or iTunes Gifts, the amount will appear in your iTunes Store account. Each time you purchase content, iTunes will deduct funds from the credit until it's depleted. If you have a credit balance from a gift, it will appear in the iTunes Store, App Store, and iBooks Store on your iOS devices and in iTunes, iBooks for Mac, and the Mac App Store.

You can't redeem or return iTunes Gift Cards, Gift Certificates, and unused store credit balances for cash except as required by law. If your jurisdiction allows for refund of redeemed gift balances, you can request a refund by contacting iTunes Store Support, selecting a support category and topic, and including the following information in your request detail:

  • Apple ID (this is your iTunes Store account name)
  • Store credit refund amount
  • Current shipping address
