They now lock your account and cancel the order if the address doesn't match the address on the card.

Buy a gift card & send it to a charity in the US.

You can't use promotional credit to buy gift vouchers

Was there much of a saving per game jaydog?

is this limited to just PSN or does it effect PC games as well? And when you say account locked is that Amazon account or PSN?

Amazon account gets locked with any digital code. it's because you're billing address doesn't match the card. they unlock it when you confirm the correct address on live chat but then it locks again when you buy again. they also cancel the purchase. it's crap.

Might be a bit of a giveaway.

Just a wild stab in the dark mind........

Well when everyone else can seem to order them, I'm simply asking if there's a different way to do this?

No need to be sarcastic is there?

This is pretty simple to circumvent, use a virtual prepaid US card like Entropay, use a US Address to link the card too.

You need to add funds to the card to display the card number, so it won't work.

I mean actually buy using the prepaid card, this is how I get Hulu, I have a random US address (no sales tax address) i top up the card with funds and use it to pay for HULU, i dont see why it wouldnt work for Amazon or any US service for that matter. infact you could link it straight to your US PSN account.

They charge you a percentage though. I have $30 in my amazon.com account that I need to spend! Looks like I can't order digital items, but I can order physical items and they will dispatch to overseas.

I just need to find something to buy worth $30 lol

What I am saying though is once the Virtual Card, With US address is linked to Amazon they will let you buy anything with the $30.00 credit.

the percentage charge is very minimal though.

That's great, but first I need to add $20 + 5% to the card which defeats the purpose of doing this lol

I have a suggestion. Move to the US.

Brilliant. Well done. Hope that made you feel like a real man!

Let me get this right.
You came asking advice on how to do something you're not meant to be doing in the first place then started getting pissy with people?
