I purchased a program earlier this year using (I think) Hide My Ass proxy in order to get the software at the US price which was significantly cheaper than the NZ price. Now I have had an offer of an upgrade at 25% off but using Hide My Ass and ProxyWebsite will open the offer page but then won't open the "Buy Now" page. It just does nothing when clicked on.

Can anyone suggest another good proxy site that I can put the URL into that will make it look like I am in the US? Making us pay an extra $25 for a download just because we are in NZ is ripping us off. :mad:

If it's for a one-off type thing, you could use a trial of Unblock Us.

Wouldn't using the "New Incognito Window" function is Chromium browsers achieve the same purpose?

No the Incognito window still shows them your IP address, it just doesn't log anything *locally* on your PC.

Download and sign up for TunnelBear. It's a small free download, but it works *beautifully* and I've ordered many devices from Google as a result of it :)
