    Hi Guys,

    I'm heading off to NY next week and I want to buy a refurbed Macbook pro (http://store.apple.com/us/product/FB986LL/A?mco=MTA4MzQ4NjU) off the apple store.

    Obviously, being from NZ, i do not have an american billing address. I do, however, have an american address i can ship it to.

    My question is how can I use my NZ credit card to buy the MBP off the US apple store? I'm looking at using Entropay or something but maybe there is a better/easier way?

    Cheers!!

    As far as I know they only accept Credit Cards with an US billing address.

    I don't think you can use your NZ Credit Card. The billing address must be in the USA.

    More info here:

    Maybe you could try a bank deposit/transfer once you arrive in the US?

    I don't about you, but my uncle ordered his 17inch MBP using his Indian credit card (he lives in india and someone took the MBP to india for him) in august.:eek:

    maybe you can call apple and ask them...good luck with your new purchase!:)
