U.S. Site Wants A U.S. Address, Any Work Arounds?

Usually I have some more luck but this time, not so much.

I'm going to call my credit card company, see if I can add a U.S. mailbox (think CBI style thing) but otherwise, nothing is officially "mine" in the U.S.

Any ideas?

A US address for what, exactly? Your credit card's billing address? Sometimes you can play around with your information and put your correct street address, etc in, but set the city/zip code to anything else. Sometimes none of it needs to match! If nothing works, adding a US address to your credit card might, but some companies reject all non-US credit cards categorically.

Use PayPal?
Add your CBI address?
Enter CBI address without adding to CC, it might work
Buy prepaid US credit card and use CBI address
Use RBC/TD Cross Border banking

What site you buying from?

i had luck doing the gas station trick they talk about... take your digits from postal code and use them as the first 3 digits of a zip code then find a valid zip code and try that..
