google opening a USA Itunes account, there is a method where you do not need to enter any card information and you just redeem gift vouchers.

Has to be fine as I still use my NZ credit card to purchase the Gift card.

Fact is USA cares next to nothing about NZ just look at Amazom, Hula and Xbox Netfix.

That and there is market protection in regards to Itunes allows you to buy HD movies that haven't been released in NZ.

mm1352000: How might one legally obtain and use a credit card registered to a US address when one resides in NZ?

I really wish we weren't forced to jump through these hoops to get content that we are willing to pay for. It is no wonder that piracy is so rampant!


How about having lived and worked there for over 6 yearsSmile

Fair enough! I actually already have an account via the gift card method; I just would rather not pay the overhead on ebay gift cards (or potentially support people that steal credit card details to pay for the cards).
