You'll most likely have to at least make a regular minimum amount of five bucks. This is a failsafe so that your credit card company doesn't flag an 80 cent online purchase.

About damn time. Points are the devil. Because it has NEVER made sense to not be able to put some EXACT quantity onto my account that just happens to match the cost of a specific thing I want to buy.

Okay, well it makes sense for THEM because they get as free profit the sum total of all the leftover balances on everyone's accounts. (And yes, it allowed them to artificially create this alternate currency that has region-specific but region-locked exchange rates that could be altered however they wanted.) But it's just a consumer-unfriendly way of doing things, and anything that's unfriendly to the consumer generally can DIAF for all I care.

That said, my credit card company doesn't complain over any purchase of a dollar or two. Because most everything that I get on the iOS App Store is at that cost level. ;)
