Can I create an account without a CC?
Or can I get it (actually) deleted from the account after creating it?
Unfortunately my card isn't up for expiry in the very near future or else I'd just do it and not update.
munchkin: You can also create an account with a gift card code, or if someone gifts a song to you.Unfortunately, buying a gift card means that you'll be sending Apple your info, too.
itxtme: Like already stated you can buy a prepay credit card from the post shop, prezzy card - http://www.nzpost.co.nz/Cultures/en-NZ/ProductsAndServices/P/PrezzyCard/AboutPrezzyCard.htm
munchkin: At a transaction cost of $5, you would be safe knowing that "Apple don't have your details".
I give up..
Out of intrest, whats the big deal with Apple storing credit card details?
I was aware of the prezzy card, but as I'm not going to be spending much (if any), effectively I'm paying the minimum top up ($20 I think?) plus the $5 transaction fee just for the account.
From the information in this thread it would seem I can achieve the same with $1.79 and get a "free song" in the process?

munchkin: You could, but then you'd be paying for that "free song" with the $1.79, wouldn't you.
cranz: I made one the other day without a credit card, It also let me make a USA account without a credit card ;) (mmm access to free US AppStore)
