I have a site I just used successfully to buy a 5000 yen gift card. I don't want this to be seen as an advertisement, because it's not, but I really struggled to get a JP itunes cards before to buy magic stones. If someone here had told me about this site earlier, I would have been grateful.
If you have any testimonials of other sites you've used to purchase JP itunes cards (when you live outside of Japan) please post them here and maybe we can use this as a reference post for future players looking to buy JP itunes cards.
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.For example, if you set Auto Reload to add 3,000 to your Associated Balance \"monthly\" at the \"End of Month\", your payment method will be charged 3,000 and 3,000 will be added to your Account balance on the 28th, 29th, 30th, or 31st of the month, whichever is the last day in the then-current month. Alternatively, if you set Auto Reload to add 3,000 to your Associated Balance when it falls below 500, your payment method will be charged 3,000 and 3,000 will be added to your Associated Balance each time it falls below 500.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.

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to pause or disable Auto Reload.

@MCLEAN5000 I use Play-Asia to import games and stuff, but I'm pretty sure they have JP iTunes cards that you can buy and use instantly. Based on my experience, they are super trustworthy and reliable.

A lot of gift cards are region based. So a card from Singapore registered to a Singapore account might not be able to buy from a US app. You'll have to get a US account and then buy with a US credit card or US iTunes/google/ whatever cards
I heard that in JP for the 4th anniversary someone mentioned that buying sq only works with Paypal; do iTunes cards no longer work to buy sq Is this true or is it still possible to buy sq with gifts cards
Finding an itunes gift card in Japan2008/9/13 16:34 Well, I really like this Japanese artist UA but since she is an older artist I think it's harder to find her cds now. I thought it would be easier to just get her songs from the Japanese Itunes store. The only problem is I can't find where they sell the cards in Japan. When I was living in America, (I am studying abroad right now) the itunes cards were everywhere. They were in grocery stores, Best Buys, Targets, probably even Walmart, and of course the Apple store. I have not seen one so far since I have been here. Does anyone have any suggestions where they may sell them By the way, I live near Akita city. Thank you for your help.by UAfan
iTunes2008/9/14 08:03 Is there a Yodobashi Camera or Bic Camera store in Akita or another nearby city They sell iTunes cards. ... Actually I just did a search, and found that your nearest Yodobashi would be in Sendai. Bic Camera has no stores between Kanto and Sapporo. Check the electronics section of any department store near you, but otherwise it looks like you might need to make a trip somewhere- there are also Apple Stores in Tokyo that carry them.by Sirarate this post as useful
Thanks2008/9/14 11:16 My school is actually offering a trip to Sendai. I may check over there. The closest mall near me has mostly clothes store and shoes stores. There is a cd store in the mall but I didn't see any Itunes cards there. I guess it would hurt to ask the people in the shop. Thank you for your response. @_@ tokyo is so far away...by UAfanrate this post as useful
different in america2008/9/22 18:57 I know in America you didn't have to have a bank account but maybe it's different in Japan. I have been trying to avoid opening a bank account in Japan so if I have to have one to use the itunes card, I guess it's not worth it.by UAfanrate this post as useful
Fortunately, people have discovered a few workarounds that have reliably worked for years now. The best option most people seem to use is to buy Japanese iTunes gift cards and use those in the place of a Japanese credit card. 59ce067264
