I can't redeem these in my Australian iTunes account. $80 each. One is untouched, one has the sticker off.

Shipping will be $3, or I could just text the codes through for free. I'm in the Wellington CBD.

Regards,

- David.

You might be lucky - iTunes cards are regularly available for 25% off. Why don't you just open an NZ account? As far as I know there's nothing (except the inevitable bother factor) to stop you chopping and changing between different app stores.

Changing stores would mean that I can't download or update material that's only in the Australian store...such as my banking apps, etc. Not worth it.

One of these has now gone, one's still available...

Pbolger is right, these cards go as low as 25% off unless you find someone who need it immediately. Suggest if you can sell it to people in oz who need NZ cards specifically at eBay if allowed

I'll offer $70 each for them if they are still for sale.

Unless the Australia store is somehow different from the others, you can easily switch between the two and update the apps you bought in each. In fact, iTunes will automatically prompt you to do that if you try and update an app in one store you bought in another.

I have US and NZ accounts and do it all the time - just log out of one and into the other.

To be honest, they make it so easy that I don't know why they even keep up the pretence of different stores really apart from to keep record companies happy - and even they are eventually going to have to accept a single set of worldwide rights I suspect as soon as someone figures it out.
