Promo codes for Canada?

hi, ive been wondering if you can use promo codes in the canadian app store, or if the developer decides which countries the code works in?

im asking because i have been promised several promo codes from devs whose games im beta testing and i need to know whether or not i should inform them that im in canada.

Answer: Nope, promos can't be used in Canada, only U.S.

Also, this thread should be in the "lounge" section

Thats exactly what I have done. (canadian eh)
I have one canadian store account with a credit card.
And one us store account with no payment option that use to redeem promo codes.


Enjoy
