The perks of having a US iTunes account includes:
- Free songs every week (picture below)
- Get apps before they are available in your country (most apps are released in US first eg: Google+)
- Get apps which are not available for your country (Scrabble app is only available for US & Canada)
Each account can be used up to 5 iOS devices and each device can be sync with 5 accounts. Let’s continue onto how to create your US iTunes account!
Step 1: App Store
Make sure you’re signed out from your current account and click on App Store.
Step 2: Free App
Click on the Free download button of any free app.
Step 3: Create New Account
You will be greeted with this screen. Do not sign in with your current Apple ID account but instead click on Create New Account.
Step 4: Continue
Click on Continue button.
Step 5: Billing Address
Make sure the billing address is stated in the United States. Else, click on the small arrow and change it. (If this option is not available to you, click continue)
Step 6: Personal Details
Fill in all your details and click Continue. It’s important that you use a new email address that is never registered as Apple ID or it will not work.
Step 7: Congratulations on your new US iTunes account

Click on None in the payment options.
Use any US address (mine is a hotel address) and congratulations, you have a US iTunes account. Happy downloading!
