    I live in Canada, is it possible to find a promo code that actually works in Canada? Because I'm found none so far, and even the developers I've talked to say that promo codes don't work outside the US. WHY??

    Because Apple cannot be bothered to make it happen.
    Simple as that.

    Shows what they think about markets outside the US.

    It's got nothing to do with international hq.
    It's got everything to do with Apple not caring and ignoring and generally not giving one about a huge market.

    Not American? Apple don't want to help you.

    What if you are a French dev? Or Jap? Or Polish? How do they get word out? They can't. Do Apple care? No. Why? They can't even get the english approval process halfway decent so adding language issues in there and it would collapse.

    my friend had the same problem

    make a new account with a US address (find one online or something) and don't select any payment method....

    should work fine :)

    Y cant Apple make all promo codes universal?
    so like it dosnt matter were you live.
  7. Yeah, I'm not sure why it is (I don't buy that Apple doesn't care -- I'd say it's more that Apple has less control outside the US, and you know how much they hate relinquishing precious ounces of that; plus they have to deal with local tax laws and such, even for freebies) but if you want promo codes, best hop into Google Maps, pick some random state, city and street address with zip code, and create a new iTunes account with it. As a fellow Canuck, I can assure you it works wonderfully. :)

    Yeah, you would think it wouldn't matter.

    Anyway, as has been posted already, anyone can create a US account without a credit card just by switching to the US store. For extra points, use Apple's own address:

    1 Infinite Loop
    Cupertino, CA 95014
