Hi,

I'm looking at options for a virtual CC with an American billing address. At this point in time I need it for iTunes, but I'm also thinking of getting on to Amazon Prime. I didn't see anything in the CC thread about Prime. I've got Netflix working just fine (heh!) with an ASB debit card.

Has anyone here used USA Unlocked? Are they legit?
Otherwise, can you guys please recommend me another service that does virtual CCs with a billing address?

Does Amazon Prime need an American CC??

Cheers!
D.

HI Davout,

We actually wrote a blog article about this topic:

In short, US Unlocked is legit.

Wow - thanks - this is wonderful. Dumb me did not know about this and will be into it - it's a great complement to NZ Post's You Shop and will also be just the ticket with Amazon Instant Video.

An update:

I didn't end up going for a virtual CC. However, my Amazon Prime subscription went through with an ASB Mastercard and a YouShop address.
That being said, whenever I tried buying something from Amazon, I would be redirected to an error page - I don't remember the error - but I do remember that the URL ended with: "PaymentMethodNotLocal".
