My chief concern is whether the work around for those who want Amazon US Kindle content without a US credit card still works. I heard there is or at least was a gift card work around where you could use a disposable email address and a non US CC to buy yourself Amazon gift certificates to create and top up a crafty US Amazon account and that as long as you stay within your account balance, Amazon in none the wiser due in part to the global 3G. Evidently prices and range of books available is considerably better via Amazon US.
Does anyone use this work around for Amazon? I use a similar work around to get US iTunes content, so hopefully it'll work with Amazon too.
Yeah, I did not think about that. I only have a Taiwanese credit card. I better get my credit union to get me an American secured Card or something...
How many times do you hit regional problems for mainstream books though? I plan on using my US Public Library for most of my reading but... there are some interesting titles I may want to buy.
How often is this a problem? What kind of books? What are the work arounds short of getting a US credit card. How about a US bank account number?
