    Didn't realise they only paid by US gift card. I initially figured that I'd use the money to by a kindle book I wanted but nope, can't even do that. So now, it's just sitting in my US account looking pretty.

    I've found a way to change it to US based before I'm sure, to buy books, then switch it back. Worth a google I think!

    It did ask if I've changed address. Was tempted to say yes but too scared. And then don't have an actual US address anyway...

    It wasn't changing your Amazon address or anything like that just changing your Kindle store temporarily to download the book and use your amazon.com balance I think..

    This might help? https://www.amazon.co.uk/forum/kindle?cdForum=Fx3IRFCNF3E5K2W&cdThread=Tx9D1IQQEY7JG2

    Obviously buy something for like 99c or something just to check it out first.

    Thanks for the link. Read through it but still haven't figured out if I'd lose books I already have on there. Just going to leave it I think.

    I didn't lose books but you could always make another account if you've not already set up the Amazon.com and put the gift vouchers on.

    I already have a .com account and the voucher is there waiting to be spent. So, I would be able to switch kindle store temporarily and switch straight back or that would flag my account as up to no good??
