Itunes voucher deals, are iTunes Store cards world wide?

If you buy a iTunes Store card is it world wide. I.e for a promotion offer can I buy App Store gift card in the uk (tesco/safeway) and still give the code on the back to somebody in the USA?

Thanks

I checked the back of my card and it says valid in Canadian iTunes Store only. It might be different with other cards though... I'm guessing not.

I thought as much, so all of those promo competitions are restricted to the US. Some do state US only but not all.

So I can only do a UK based competition like that I guess to promote my app

Maybe you can buy a US itunes store card on ebay ?
But I don't know if it's authorized or safe.

How about just making an US account?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
