I currently pay for my Netflix subscription using a UK debit card with a UK address. The card is going to expire soon and I need to know if I will be able to add my wife’s card to the account. It is a UK debit card too but it has a NZ address. Will it be possible to add it to Netflix – if I state a UK address when adding it will it work or will it work with a NZ address given it is a UK card?

I can't see it being a problem. They'll soon tell you if it is. They won't (shouldn't?) be able to see the address anyway from what I can tell?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I'm paying my US Netflix account with an NZ card. Can't honestly remember what address I gave Netflix at the time I set it up, however the card has an NZ address.

As am I. They only asked for a postal/zip code and not a full address.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Haha.. You're probably right. I specifically avoided that one.

You can use a NZ card, as people said it just needs a valid US zip code.

Well either I'm drunk more than I think, or sometimes you get the wrong thread from the Live page :-)

I think you're right. About the Live page, not that you've had more to drink than you think!

If you do run into problems, I've managed to pay my Netflix (US) with an AirNZ One Smart Mastercard debit card - the sort with different currency wallets on it. It also worked for my US and UK iTunes accounts, but not Australian, interestingly. I believe other "loaded for travel" style debit cards also work - you can pick one up from KiwiBank/NZ Post.
