Tried TSB, Ulster Bank, AIB and Revolut.

No joy with any of them.

Any workarounds?

There is supposed to be a 4K version of this launching soon so it could be a mix up on the sellers behalf but I doubt it.

I'm personally holding out for the 4K version, differences will be a better quad core processor, 2GB of RAM and USB-C for power. Rumoured price is about €79.

I'll try again with UB. If no joy I'll forget it.
It's 24e with eglobal but they want 20 postage on order below 50.

tried revolut, asked me to confirm the purchase through the revolut app, did that and then it was declined. tried my PTSB credit and debit cards and both were declined. after the revolut attempt the discount code could no longer be applied.
pity, looks a good alternative to the firestick

If you use Gmail you can set up a new account with dhgate and just insert a full stop somewhere in your address, you will still receive the email but dhgate will accept it as new and you can use the code again.

Joebloggs@gmail.com
Joe.bloggs@gmail.com
Joeb.loggs@gmail.com

You get the idea.

Perhaps trying enabling online transactions in your revolut app if it's not already on?

Argos Ireland sell firesticks (not 4k version) they aren't on the site, and I'm guessing it's because they're technically not supposed to be selling them here, but they 100% have them in their stores.
