    Hi...

    does anyone knows how can i check an itunes store card code (16 digit) without actually redeeming it???

    i just want to check the balance of the card code, if its legit, i dont want to redeem it.......

    like with PSN, you can check the balance of the psn card without redeeming it....

    i have searched with no luck

    is it possible????

    and calling to apple is not an option, because im not from the US... but its an US itunes card..


    thanks!!

    The way an iTunes card works is it has fifteen pounds (or dollars etc) and when you redeem it that 15 pounds goes into your account out of the card.

    Tl dr: the card either has the full amount of money or nothing

    Find the person to sell it to, ask them to try redeeming it, then once it's redeemed get the other person to give you the money

    in order to check it,you need to scratch it off, then input the code in itunes.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    if the card is already been redeemed, then itunes will
    tell you to "enter a valid prepaid card code".

    Well actually if it hasn't been scratched off yet then it isn't redeemed [​IMG]

    i don't know if it works in your country,but to check it,
    input the code in itunes. click "redeem",if it's legit,
    itunes will prompt you to enter your password.
    you can cancel anytime.

    if it's already been redeemed or whatever.,if you
    click redeem..you'll get this:
