    Hello, I heard there were Japanese people buying thousands of iTunes cars in Mexico obviously they are making money some how. I wonder how they can make money? Reselling maybe? I thought you could only use iTunes Mexican cards in Mexico, maybe in Japan are really expensive?

    Thanks.

    Best way would be to reverse engineer their system. Will take some times if you don't know spanish nor japanese, but even with G translate, you could find the rope in few hours.

    Maybe its about saving money rather than making it.............

    You don't really make anything selling itunes cards unless you're apple.

    They are probably using a mexican itunes account, since the songs there are the cheapest ones in the world. If the current prices are the same, it would cost like $1250 for 1,000 songs on Japanese itunes market, compared to $910 on the mexican itunes account due to the current exchange rates.
