  • Open iTunes
  • From the sidebar, select iTunes Store
  • If you’re not signed in, Sign In
  • Under Quick Links, you’ll find Redeem. Click on it.
  • Enter the code and you’re done!

Redeeming an iTunes gift code gives you the ability to purchase songs, albums, games, apps etc. However, bear in mind that when you purchase something that’s over the value of the redeem code, your credit card will be billed for the excess amount. Apple won’t stop the purchase under such a circumstance: it will proceed to checkout and finish it.
