    I think I may have found a way to make GCash AMEX work with US iTunes. What you need to do is go to the PayPal US page, not PH page (click on the flag at the lower right of the page to set it up) and open an account and add the AMEX card based on the details of your GCash AMEX account. Then on iTunes, choose PayPal and confirm your account.

    Make sure you have around US$15 to confirm which will be automatically refunded.

    Haven't made any purchases yet but so far, iTunes has not yet rejected my payment. Fingers crossed.
