Hi There,

Apple have a page setup for answering this very question:
Redeem and use iTunes Gift Cards and content codes

The basic process is to Open the iTunes Store, App Store or iBooks Store then scroll to the bottom of the 'Featured' section. There you will find a Redeem button. With this you can even use your camera to scan the barcode or enter the code manually. If successful you will see the updated balance at the bottom of your 'Featured' page under your Apple ID. If it was for content then it will start downloading.

Hope you find what you were looking for.

All the best

How do you download books on an apple ipad


An Internet connection is required. On iOS devices such as the iPad, the iBooks App includes the iBooks Store. Tap the iBooks icon and your bookshelf appears. In the upper corner, tap the Store button and the bookshelf flips around to reveal the iBooks Store. From the iBooks Store, you can browse books by title, author, or genre. You can also view featured books as well as books available on the New York Times bestseller lists (United States only). Tap on a book to see more details and download a free sample. When you buy a book, it will automatically appear on your iBooks bookshelf.
