How to get a US iTunes account - for free! (with no credit card)

Not sure if this has been posted but it came in handy for me tonight to get the Ebay app so I thought someone else might like the info too.

First go here: TuneCore: 34 Stars

Copy the free album redeem code, then go to iTunes and log out of the Canadian store. Then choose US store at the very bottom of iTunes (scroll down in the store) and then click Redeem near the top right of the US itunes store, after you've changed from the Canadian store to the US store.

Then, enter the code, agree to the terms, pick user/pass enter secret question etc, then click next and enter a "us address" and at the bottom where it says enter billing info, you will see there is an option for NONE. Pick that and voila, US iTunes account for free! Then, download cool Ebay app (if you want). Haha
Also you can get iTunes gift cards on ebay and buy stuff not available in the Canada store (check out how many more documentary's they have for instance!!)

I look forward to giving the Google App a spin.

Interesting but... will this effect the iTunes account that's tied to my iPhone that I use to buy apps? l.E. will signing up for another account change the account on my iPhone too (and therefore take away my ability to buy apps?)

it is interesting, of course you need a US address, which kinda sucks - so i'm gonna try a false address and see what happens, and also see if it screws up my canadian account.

fingers crossed it doesn't

it works. it doesn't affect your other account at all. all you have to do is type US Zip Codes in google, find the appropriate one and you have an american itunes account!

hi there, no it won't, just keep signed into your canadian itunes account on your phone and get US app's on your computer, not thru your phone. *edit* NOTE: my phone seems to change to the US account when I get app's from the Us store.. but it doesn't seem to matter as far as causing any problems. If you switch back to the canadian store after you get your apps or whatever from US store, then sync your phone again and unplug it should be back to your canadian account on the phone.

You can login and out of each account in itunes by pressing logout, then selecting the country at the bottom by scrolling down, then logging in and can switch back to canadian by doing the same thing.

Also the ebay app didn't work for me (crashed when opened it) when i still had my phone plugged into my computer, so unplug it and it should work. not sure why that was but its working great now!

a quick way, 90002 works for Los Angeles and 90210 works for (you guessed it) Beverly Hills

and yes prob need to use a different email than the one associated with your Canadian iTunes account.. not sure if it would allow using the same both both a Canadian and US account.

And check out all those movies! and documentary's! They have some ok deals on Ebay for us iTunes cards also

hehe. I'm glad you guys like it

You guys are funny....

Why not just use Google Maps to search for a U.S address, then change the details slightly like what I did? Works like a charm!
