Most of the developers that have been giving out promo codes released their games in the US app store, so the codes will only work in the US app store, unfortunately. It just depends on where they released their game.

This is not correct. It was Apple who decided (for some strange and unexplained reason) that the new promo codes for apps will only work for US iTune store accounts. This has nothing to do with which iTunes stores apps were released in. Apple have imposed this restriction and I am sure that developers would like to be able to distribute some of these codes to a wider customer base outside the USA.

No worries, just wanted to make sure that no-one thinks that the devs are the ones restricting the promo codes to US iTunes accounts. It's Apple. Damn you Apple!!
