I live in Canada, is it possible to find a promo code that actually works in Canada? Because I'm found none so far, and even the developers I've talked to say that promo codes don't work outside the US. WHY??
It's got nothing to do with international hq.
It's got everything to do with Apple not caring and ignoring and generally not giving one about a huge market.
Not American? Apple don't want to help you.
What if you are a French dev? Or Jap? Or Polish? How do they get word out? They can't. Do Apple care? No. Why? They can't even get the english approval process halfway decent so adding language issues in there and it would collapse.
Yeah, I'm not sure why it is (I don't buy that Apple doesn't care -- I'd say it's more that Apple has less control outside the US, and you know how much they hate relinquishing precious ounces of that; plus they have to deal with local tax laws and such, even for freebies) but if you want promo codes, best hop into Google Maps, pick some random state, city and street address with zip code, and create a new iTunes account with it. As a fellow Canuck, I can assure you it works wonderfully.
