How to get a free US iTunes account from anywhere in the world

If you use iTunes, there are several benefits to getting an iTunes Store account, including:

  1. Free singles
  2. The ability to download album artwork
  3. The ability to download iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch apps
  4. The ability to get iTunes Genius results (recommendations of music you might like)

Creating an iTunes account normally requires you to enter your credit card details, but if you don’t have a credit card (or you live in a country the iTunes Store doesn’t support), you can use one of the methods below to get a free account.

Note: If you try to purchase anything that’s not free using a free account, you will still be prompted for your credit card details.

Method 1 – Purchase a free iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch Application

To purchase a free app:

  • open iTunes
  • click the “iTunes Store” item in the menubar on the left side of the application
  • click the “App Store” link on the left side of the page
  • find a free application and click on the “Get App” button

When prompted for your Apple ID and Password, click on the “Create Account” button, then fill in the details iTunes requests (you’ll need to fill in a real postal code for the area you select, so check online for valid postal codes). When you get to the Payment Details page you’ll see that “None” has been added as an option.

Method 2 – iTunes Redeem Code

You should be able to find websites that offer iTunes Redeem Codes as part of promotions if you Google for them.

Once you have an iTunes Redeem Code you can create a free account by:

  • opening iTunes
  • clicking on the “iTunes Store” item in the menubar on the left side of the application
  • choosing your country at the bottom of the page
  • then clicking the “Redeem” link in the “Quick Links” section in the top right corner of the page
  • Enter your Redeem Code when prompted for it, then click the “Redeem” button
  • When prompted for your Apple ID and Password
  • click the “Create Account” button, then fill in the rest of the details iTunes requests (you’ll need to fill in a real postal code for the area you select, so check online for valid postal codes)

When you get to the Payment Details page you’ll see that “None” has been added as an option.
