Today I went into Samsung Apps and tried to download a few apps, but every app I tried to download came up with an error message:

The country information for your Samsung account does not match the country information for the Samsung Apps store.
- Samsung Apps country: GLB
- Samsung account country: New Zealand
To continue using Samsung Apps, sign in to a Samsung account with the same country information as the Samsung Apps store
Does anyone know how I can fix this?

My S3 is a 2Degrees version, bought from The Warehouse Stationary. I've downloaded just fine from Samsung Apps in the past, don't know what has changed.  It seems to me that the phone is accessing the wrong country's app store, where is GLB? Gibraltar?

Did you root your phone?
Try clear Samsung account cache and delete all caches in recovery mode.

Nope, haven't rooted my phone, it's completely stock.

I cleared the Samsung Apps cache but that didn't help.  There is nothing in the cache for Samsung Account.

Where did you register your Samsung account? (country)
Try remove Samsung app updates and clear cache then reboot.
Otherwise you can root your phone and clear delvin cache and system cache will fix the problem.
Use market enabler and change it to 55001 apply to reboot and reboot. This will fix it.
If not then you have to reset the phone.

There is another method but can't remember.

I registered in NZ.

I tried uninstalling updates for Samsung Apps and restarting phone, but as soon as I go back into Samsung Apps it tells me I have to update the app and doesn't give me any choice about the matter.  After the update it still insists the app is set for GLB.

I'm really reluctant to root my S3, not because I don't know how but because of what I've read of people trying to get rooted phones repaired.  Yes I know I can remove the root, but that's assuming I can get into my phone.  What happens if I root it and something happens to the phone so that I need to return it for repair and I can't get into the phone to un-root it before returning it?

Now that I think about it, I think the last time I used Samsung Apps and it worked ok was before they updated the app a while ago.  Maybe the update has stuffed it up?

55001 is "FSM Telecom FSM", how did you figure out to use this code?  Somehow related to the GLB country code?

Opps sorry I meant 53001 :) its Vodafone.
Try clear your Google frameworks cache and Play cache. Samsung Apps uses Google play region setting.

Hope that help.

As for root issue you raised, if your phone has software issue then you can reset it back. But if it is a hardware issue then (water damage, crack screen, run over by a truck... Etc) you won't get warranty anyway. Also exploded phone might still be covered by warranty if it happens on its own. Either way hardware issue that makes the phone won't turn on (components failure, dead screen, , dead pixels or factory fault) will validate your warranty because it is not software related (from what I understand), use MHL cable and you can reset it from there.

As long you power the phone on (when you see Samsung logo) then you can always unroot it to get your warranty. :)
The odds of bricking is very small and the only way I can see you'd brick it is to corrupt the NAND flash via software flashing of third party ROMs.

From what I understand is 1year but In European it has 2years. Although, the warranty cert says 2years so I'm not sure. Must I trust what came with the phone?
Battery is only 6 months I think.

The Google Services Framework already had an empty cache, so I cleared the Google Play Store cache.  Unfortunately that didn't help.

I think I'll just wait till Samsung next update their Samsung Apps app and see if that fixes it.  It's not like I really need to use Samsung Apps, I was just wondering why it had suddenly stopped working for me.
