How to get a US iTunes account - free! (Download free content).

Found 17th Jun 2008Made hot 17th Jun 2008
The US iTunes store seems to have a lot more free content than the UK store, but how do you get a US account without a US credit card etc.. ???

Well you either buy a $ voucher (which involves cost) or follow the following which I have found on several websites:-

Step 1: Find a redemption code. The difficult part, but try this link:- allhiphop.com/pro…mm/

17 FREE RnB / Hip Hop tracks so far this month !!

Step 2: Enter the US Store.
Open up iTUNES and make sure you're signed out of your UK account (click your username/email address at the top right, then click sign out). Scroll to the bottom of the page and select United States from the My Store pulldown.

Once the US store has loaded, click Redeem in the menu at the top right below the banner.

Step 3: Use the code.
Paste the code in and click Redeem. You'll get a sign-in request, but click Create Account instead.

Step 4: Create your account.
You'll have to agree to the iTS T&Cs first, then you'll be presented with a payment method screen. However, this time you'll see 'None' as a payment method. Leave that selected and provide a phony address.

Note: if you never plan to download paid content from the iTS, then it doesn't matter what state you choose. If you think you may want to actually buy content at some point, using gift certificates or whatever, then choose a state with no sales tax (e.g Florida). In either case, the city and zip you provide must match. Use a Walmart Address - just google.

Step 5: Start downloading!
Go nuts! There's one or two free songs per week, plus random other stuff. There's a section further down the home page (under Staff Favorites) that lists all the free material.

Search the net for free content or refer here: forums.macrumors.com/sho…832

UPDATE: The same principal works for any country, except the code will be for the US only so it wont let you download that item. BUT....it will let you create an account with no payment details and let you access all the other free content for that country.

Ooh, we like this. Heat added!

thank you does this work on anything else ?

can't seem to get a code from that link. i click on redeem and it opens a window that opens itunes and then nothing happens. any ideas?

nevermind. you need to copy and paste the first link given in the description and fill in a form first to get sent a code. the go to deal link takes you to the page when you have your code

super! thanks.

I've been waiting for my email for ages for part 1! Tried several emails as well. I think i'll try again now...

Worked like a charm. Many thanks. Voted hot.

After 10 hours of trying, the 3rd (and 4th) emails have finally arrived.

this is great thanks! Always gets me irate when you hear great hip hop stuff on the radio but can't get them on UK itunes til weeks/months afterwards and now I don't have to wait!

I did this a few weeks ago to get hold of Desperate Housewives which is only available in USA. You can get US Dollar itunes codes from ebay at quite reasonabe costs if you intend to make purchases.

I left that one blank and it accepted it.

Thanks. I used the one that I'm going to use for iTs, just in case there's some sort of cross-check. Had a few thick moments earlier, but I've managed to get the account sorted out now. Thanks, OP.

The landing page in 1. is a asearch page but it crashes each time I try to search - any ideas why or how to find a code?

Great! The US store usually has decent tunes for free.

[SIZE="2"]I've signed up no probs, but if I want to buy things from itunes US, what payment method should I use? If I try to register my Credit Card, will that give the game away, or could I use the Paypal option or if I buy itunes vouchers from a shop, could I use that on itunes US?[/SIZE]

p.s. heat & rep to OP :thumbsup:

You'd have to have a US credit card to use that option. Paypal should work, but I haven't tried. Otherwise US $ vouchers purchased from eBay will work fine !!! :thumbsup:

EXCELLENT!!!!!

Also used a voucher from Ebay USA on Itunes - Works Fine

There are some good deals on eBay for $ vouchers. Picked up $200 for £50 - even better when all the albums are $9.99 at the US store. As always the UK gets ripped off !!!

Is this legal?

Just to let you all know this violates their terms and conditions. Be Careful!

Be careful with this guys - I bought a gift card code of an ebay seller and then had my iTunes account disabled. I contacted iTunes who advised that the code that I had purchased was fraudulent.

Watch out!

doesn't work anymore
