    ATTN: US-based CWebbers

    I was hoping one of you could help me out.

    Amazon is having a big PC games sale, and there's three things I want to buy, but amazon only allows Steam codes to be sold to US residents. Why, I'm not sure, but yeah.

    I tried stuffing around with Proxy's and VPN but I had trouble signing in as cookies need to be enabled and I don't trust most free proxy sites. Would anyone be willing to help? It'd cost you $17.50 straight up, and I could Paypal you the money straight away. Then all you'd have to do is give me the Steam codes that amazon emails you.

    Someone halppppppp pls

    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Have you tried through amazon.co.uk? I've managed to get *some* games sent to NZ through amazon.co.uk before for much cheaper than I'd pay here.

    My brother set up a US post box account that allows him to receive mail in the US which is then forwarded to any address around the world pretty much free of charge

    You don't have to be in the US to do it and he did it specifically to get around Amazon's horrendous freight charges

    I can ask him for details if you like but cant promise that he will reply anytime soon

    Can't you just change your address to a US address? It's what I've done with Amazon games previously.

    That's a great idea. Did he set it up from inside the US?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Does it matter that the address doesn't match the billing address on my card? It seems to be working but I don't know if the charge will go through because of it.

    I don't think it matters on amazon's end but your bank might flag it and call you up to confirm. Happens to me a lot when I buy things and get them delivered to England.

    Should just get me to buy them all for you.
