I had been told the CHF iTunes cards only work on CH accounts. I never tested it though. But... you can have a Swiss address on a US account with a Swiss credit card attached to it and it works just fine.

Definitely does not work. You need to buy US iTunes dollars for a US iTunes account etc

Another option is to buy US credit from an online store (just google it), and set up a US account. You don't need to provide a US credit card if you have store credit. I have a link to a website which explains how, so let me know if you need the reference!

Would you mind sending me that link? I've tried to buy a US itunes gift card with my Swiss credit card, and a PF account, but so far I've been blocked.

Here is one that should work: www.pcgamesupply.com/buy/itunes-gift-card-online-code/

(Note however that I cannot condone this practice, as it contravenes the iTunes Store Terms and Conditions, i.e. access to US iTunes store outside the US. )
