    My wife recently gave me three App Store gift cards in the amount of $10 each. I inserted the serial number for each card. It's probably something really easy but, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to see what my balance is! I made a few purchases but now want to see how much is left. Can someone please point me in the right direction? Also, would you happen to know if I can use my balance for books or music?

    If you go into your iTunes account it will tell you there what your balance is.

    I went to my desktop PCM and saw it there. But, it doesn't show on my iPad. Weird.

    Mine does. If you go to iTunes on your iPad and than go to the music tab,scroll down you should see where it says Welcome (Your Name) your balance is (Whatever Your Balance Is).

    But I'm still on 5.1.1. I don't know if this was eliminated on higher updates.

    It works on iOS 5 and 6. (I've got 5 on iPad 2 and 6 on iPad 4.) That's how I've always checked my balance. It would be crazy for Apple to expect you to log on by computer just to check your balance.

    If you don't see your balance on iTunes on iPad even when you're logged into your account, you've either applied a gift credit to the wrong account, or applied it incorrectly. Or you're just looking in the wrong place.

    Hi James.....evidentially it must have been eliminated on the new update. I see my apple I.D. at the bottom but when I click on it, it takes me to my info without giving a balance. Also, I just purchased music and it used my credit card instead of using the balance on my gift card. Lol... Another issue.

    My iPad 4 is on iOS 6 and iTunes continues to show my credit balance on iPad. It appears directly under my iTunes acct name.

    Hi Kay....I see the balance on my desktop computer BUT not on iPad. So, I'm thinking, it wasn't applied to the wrong account. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place but, I swear, I've looked in every nook & cranny in iTunes!

    It's where iJames said it was supposed to be (post 11 on the thread). I can see it on my iPad 2 and 4, my iPhone 4S and my touch 5.

    It's shown up there as long as I've used gift cards.

    Two of my current iDevices are on iOS 5 and two on iOS 6. There's been no change in that feature.

    if you go to the ITunes app on the ipad, hit music at the bottom, then swipe the music page all the way up, it will show on the bottom left
