NZ payment account help

I have a NZ account already, but I'm in the US. I'm very impatient so I'd like to get Aralon as soon as possible.

I know I can't use my credit card on my NZ account so how can I buy it from the nz store when it comes out?

Nah, I meant NZ gift cards. I assume people buy them from ebay or something, which is too much of a hassle for a game imo.

Ah I see. Oh well, I'll just wait then.

I am, about 78 percent sure that, if you email yourself a iTunes Gift Card in the US store, then post it in the NZ store, it might work.

Hmm I like those odds lol

I kinda figured if there was an easy way to do it then everyone would be.

I guess it can't hurt to try it though, if it doesn't work I can just use the money on my US account when it comes out here.

Unfortunately I believe you will have to purchase a NZ gift card to be able to redeem it on the NZ store.

If you're in the US you could try buying online from one of the many iTunes retailers (there are so much these days, many shops have started selling the cards in the past month).

This retailer does international orders and they have regular sales like 2 $20 cards for $30 and $50 cards for $40: http://www.dse.co.nz/dse.filereader?...ogs/CTG0002662
