Buying iPad apps en masse without adding credit card?
I was just wondering how other people with iPads were handling being able to buy apps en masse?
We were going to follow the model we've seen mentioned a few places that involves buying the app once in the store and then gifting it multiple times depending on how many copies of the app we need. The "gifts" would then esentally be our licenses with the apps.
Quick Example: We need the scrabble app installed on 10 ipads then we would purchase it once in the store using our normal iTunes account and then gift it 9 times to a designated e-mail address.
The issue we're facing is that we wanted to use Apple Gift Cards to purchase the apps on so we wouldn't have to associate the school credit card with our iTunes account. However we've discovered that we can't use a gift card balance to fund gifting items. Buying them directly and the gift card balance works fine but it falls over when we want to "gift" the app 9 times because it explicitly asks for a different payment method.
Either Card or Clink N Buy.
I was wondering how other people got around this issue?
