In the upper right corner of iTunes, where it has your account name (probably email address) is a down arrow. Click on that. The second option on that menu says "Redeem." Click that. When you do that, it will bring up a Redeem Code box. Scratch off the strip on the back of your gift card and enter the number on the card into that Redeem box. Then just click on the Redeem button to the right. You'll then have the amount of your gift card put into your iTunes account.

Just to add to this the future purchases will be charged on the giftcard until it reaches zero then it will use your credit card again
