Expired Promocodes

Hi,
is there a way to check if a promocode has expired or been claimed with claiming it?

And where can one buy extra promo codes in iTunes connect? I can not find it.

Thanks

I believe if you enter the code and it asks for your password it is unused at the time. If you do not enter your password to claim it, it should still be unused. Otherwise you get the message immediately after entering the code that this code is used.

Not entirely sure though

Just log out & enter the code.

ITunes either ask for your login data (unused) or tells you that the code has expired or is already redeemed.

You can't buy extra promo codes.

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.

Well, you sort of can. Just gift it to the people you want to have it and they will receive a gift code by email, which looks like a promo code.

Also:

You can only gift games to people on your own appstore. eg: An account on the US AppStore can't gift a game to someone on the New Zealand AppStore.

If you're given a free promocode, that can generally be used anywhere.

I'm being asked to login with codes which were said to have all been taken (from page 1 of our promo thread). Is this happening to others?
