Important notice. Don't buy ebooks using 3g, wifi, or the kindle app. You have to buy them using web browser on a computer.
Here's a guide to buy kindle ebooks in Singapore.
1. Close your web browser (IE, firefox, chrome), open VPN client and reopen the browser. (Now you're surfing internet from USA!)
2. Go to manage your kindle page here. Set your location to USA (Country Setting on the left). Use any USA address, your Borderlinx address is ok.
3. Purchase a gift card with your local credit card and have it send to your email. Apply the gift card to your account.
4. Delete credit card data associated with your account
5. If you already have step 1-4 done, now you can buy ebooks from kindle store using your gift card balance.
In this step, you may close your VPN client. (You've already presented yourself in the US during managing your kindle account.). However, if amazon ask you to verify your address, do nothing and use VPN during the next purchase.
