Read most of the thread but not all of it. What's the best way for me to go?

Currrently paying via vouchers. No payment details entered on the acc. Vouchers run out on Nov 6.

Is there any way to use an Irish card and still get a foreign sub?

I would say no, I have a sub through Argentina. Stupidly agreed to the fraudulent activity on the revolut, didn't realise the card would be cancelled. Tried to use the new card, denied payment. Tried to use the Mrs revolut, denied. Used an aib card, denied. Then got on to Netflix chat, they wouldn't approve revolut as a payment. Told me to use a local Argentinian card. In the end they unlocked my account so I can sort out payment. Due to expire next Monday.

A lot of faffing about now, for most. Looks like it might just be handier to pay the €15.

Of course it'd be handier....but where's the fun and sense of achievement in that? For those like me that unfortunately had to change / update payment card on an active Turkish sub and found themselves screwed, Turkish Netflix vouchers might be an option

(50TL / 100TL) denominations

Thanks OP and @dulpit in post #1963.

I took out a new standard Irish sub early last month. Netflix upgraded to full package for a month for free. Added mobile number. Used Curve and Revolut to pay. Then cancelled it.

Moved to South America over the weekend :-)
Renewed yesterday using tor and ExitNodes. Very straightforward. All working fine.

I'm not an expert on VPNs. I tried playing with around with Hola in Chrome and a few other free VPNs first, but wasn't convinced my IP address was showing up correctly when checked with whatsmyip etc., so didn't go to renew on Netflix.com using this route.

Thanks again. Will be interesting to see how long this lasts.

My sub expires at midnight, is it advised to wait a full 24 hours before connecting VPN and attempting to renew ?

Yeah but Netflix is totally not worth paying 15 euros for

https://touchvpn.net/ for mobile
Free VPN extension for Brave browser, desktop (it is acting up when surfing)
Tor Browser, desktop (works nicely with Exit Nodes generally)

At this point I'm thinking it's the revolut card. I used the same card initially when I tried to create new Netflix account straight from Tr and it failed. Not sure if they track all attempts of payments + locations

Did it work with the VPN?
