No reason why it shouldn't. You will get an email receipt for your purchase. Next to the purchase will be a link to report a problem. I would do that and ask what the problem might be.

Is the amount of your gift card showing up in the upper right of iTunes when you are in the iTunes store?

I have both a cc and a balance from a gift card at this time and when I make a purchase it come out of the balance. The only time the cc should come into play is if the gift card balance isn't enough to cover the purchase.

That's odd. I had a bunch of credit from a Gift Card at the iTunes Store. I downloaded Crash Bandikoot via my V1 and the credit wasn't showing up as deducted in my iTunes Store. But, when I went to my account and checked "Purchase History", then clicked "Report a Problem", the $9.99 was deducted from my credit.

Was it because I clicked "Report a Problem"? Or was it just the normal lag in it registering in the Store? I dunno.

If I find something else to buy, I'll wait for a day or two to see if it registers itself.
