iTunes gift card and Apps?

Is it not possible to use itunes gift cards with apps in Canada?

It prompts me to use my credit card always. I got a $50 gift card for my birthday and I wanna use it!!

Latest update?

I just got an update for my ipod touch a few days ago and it stated in the details that this is one of the fixes. Do not know if this means us in Canada? I have not tried one since...

I don't get what is the matter with this? It makes no sense to me. Maybe developers don't want to wait for Apple to pay them in 90 days?

If you look at the terms and conditions of the Canadian iTunes card, it specifically says:

iTunes Gift Cards may not be used on the Canadian store to purchase applications and games

Source: iTunes Gift Card - Silhouette - $15 - Apple Store (Canada)

Found this thread as well:

Apple - Support - Discussions - Itunes Gift Card ...

Regardless, it's a ridiculous policy.

There is some difference between Canadian and US law on this point that Apple either doesn't want to deal with or can't for legal reasons.

AppleCare could not be sold to individuals in Florida for the LONGEST time till the Apple Stores started opening, and even then only Apple Stores could sell it, nobody else. This finally changed, but it took YEARS.
