How to subscribe from outside the US
You may choose Spotify if you love the flexibility. Or, Apple Music if you are a die-hard Apple user. The Prime discounts may catch your eye too. No matter what choice you make, you will be able to use the US Unlocked Card at checkout. The US Unlocked Card is a virtual Visa prepaid debit card that has a U.S. billing address. We partner with forward shipping companies that allow us to use their address as the billing address on our cards. We are partnered with:
The US Unlocked Card is accepted on most U.S. websites where Visa prepaid is accepted. When using your card, do make sure you are always connected over VPN (U.S. IP address) when making a purchase. To check whether your VPN is working you can go to whatismyipaddress.com. The IP location will need to be somewhere in the U.S.A.
