    Purchasing eBooks with gift cards

      Since I live abroad, I can not buy eBooks on line.


      I would like to know if every time I came to US, if I go to a store and buy a gift card, paying cash, I will be able to later redeem eBooks. From any country I am.

          I do not believe so, I don't think it is the payment method that is the issue, it's either the billing address (and you have to put in a credit card even if you are using gift cards to purchase) or the location of your ISP/IP address.  I tried to purchase from a UK store and I didn't even get to the payment part when it told me there were geographical restrictions and it couldn't sell the book to me.


          B&N has been quite upfront about not being able to buy books internationally at this time.
