    Is there a way to uses iTunes card only a purchase or two then save it for next month ?


    I would expect any additional activity to charge through my credit card.



    I know how to put in card code for redemption. I just want one charge then hold off until the next month or so.

    My understanding is that it will use any available iTunes credit before using any linked credit card. I think that if your iTunes credit is less than the purchase amount it will then use the credit card before using the remaining iTunes credit.

    Just FYI, iTunes credit (ie. gift cards) are a better way to go on several fronts. 1) allow you to remove your credit card details from your AppleID to reduce the chance of credit card fraud; 2) allow you to save money by shopping around for iTunes gift card deals at retailers, 20% off specials, 2 x $20 cards for $30, etc. It basically saves you money. Case in point, I was saving up to get Final Cut Pro for my Mac. I would just wait for the specials and jump in and buy a couple of cards each time, redeeming my cards and storing up the credit on my AppleID. By the time I had enough credit to make the purchase from the Mac App Store, I reckon I had saved my self at least $100 off the purchase price.
