Issuer is an affiliate of Apple Inc. If you are the holder of an App Store and iTunes gift card or code balance, or have a balance in your Associated Balance, you can now use the card and code balance and the Associated Balance to purchase Products as well as Content. However, only physical and digital gift cards and codes can be used towards purchases in Apple Retail Stores. Some items may not be available for purchase. Once you link a physical or digital gift card or code to your Account, the balance becomes associated with your Associated Balance, and you will no longer be able to use the physical or digital card or code, including in Apple Retail Stores. Gift Cards purchased in the United States and content codes can only be linked to an Account in the United States and can only be used for purchases in the United States. The United States includes its territories and possessions. No shipments can be made to P. Box addresses, United States territories, or addresses outside of the United States. Some Gift Cards may indicate they can only be used to purchase Products. If you purchased or use a Gift Card that indicates it is only for Products, you cannot use that Gift Card to purchase Content. Once enabled, Auto Reload continues until cancelled. In some countries, the Add Funds tab may be labeled Add Money. With Auto Reload, you select the reload amount. You also select the timing for example, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, or when your Associated Balance falls below a set amount. The payment method charged is the default payment method you have on file with Apple Media Services. If your default payment method is updated, the updated payment method will be charged. If we cannot charge your payment method for any reason, another payment method on file may be charged or, if that is not available, it may result in your Associated Balance not being funded. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to pause or disable Auto Reload. This may occur if there is fraud, misconduct, illegal behavior, inactivity, maintenance, a change in law, a need for verifying information, a problem with the payment method on file such as expiration or insufficient funds , or if the functionality is no longer offered, your Associated Balance reaches a limit set by law or regulation, or for other reasons. Additional Restrictions. Gift Cards are not redeemable for cash and cannot be returned for a cash refund except as required by law exchanged resold or used to purchase Gift Cards. Unused Associated Balances are not transferable. Issuer maintains information about the status of gift cards or codes. Contact Apple for information about the status of your Account and any Associated Balance. You agree to not use Gift Cards or content codes in any manner that is unlawful, misleading, deceptive, unfair, or otherwise harmful to Issuer, Apple, or its customers. We and Apple reserve the right , without notice to you, to void or deactivate Gift Cards or content codes without a refund, suspend or terminate Accounts, request alternative forms of payment, suspend or terminate the ability to purchase Products or to purchase or use Content, cancel or limit orders, and bill alternative forms of payment if we suspect Gift Cards or content codes were obtained, used, or associated with an Account unlawfully, fraudulently, or otherwise in violation of these Terms. When you purchase Content, the funds will be deducted first from the amount available in your Associated Balance. Any unused amount will remain in your Associated Balance. If your purchase exceeds the amount available in your Associated Balance, another payment method on file may be charged. If that is not available, you will be asked to pay with another payment method or the transaction will be cancelled. An Account is necessary to access and use Content. Apple may update the terms related to Accounts, Content, Products, and content codes. When you purchase from the Apple online store, Apple Store app, or through MY-APPLE, the funds will be deducted first from the amount available on any gift cards or codes you enter at checkout, and second from the amount available in your Associated Balance if you are logged in to your Account and choose to apply your Associated Balance. Any unused amount will remain on your gift cards or codes or Associated Balance, respectively. If a purchase exceeds the amount available in your gift cards or codes and Associated Balance, another payment method on file or credit card you enter may be charged.
