    US Nook ST - Will it work in the UK?

       

      I tried to buy a UK B&N NST on a UK website, but it wouldn't take my US credit card.

       

      I want to buy one for a friend in the UK.  Can I buy a US model and send it or will this cause problems?

          It is my understanding that:

           

          1) If you buy a Nook in the US, it will link to the US Nook Shop and requires a US credit card on the Nook account.
          2) If you buy a Nook in  the UK, it will link to the UK Nook Shop and requires a UK/Euro credit card on the Nook account.  (don't buy a US model and ship it there)

          3) If you buy a Nook from the BN website it will only accept US payment, and ships a Nook only to US addresses

           

          You could work around this possibly by seeing if any of the retail partners at the UK website will allow you to pay for a Nook with a US credit card and ship directly to a UK address.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          edit:  you mentioned Nook ST, the good news for HD/HD+ users is that it asks you what country you are in at device registration, so less of an issue with those devices
