Yes. Code doesn't have to be redeemed on the account you purchased it on. Create Arg account, buy games, redeem on main CA account.

Hades is incredible btw. Thanks OP!

I'm from The Netherlands and tried this method since yesterday, but somehow I can't get it to work. I created a new account on my mobile, set the country to Argentina and put the games in my cart. I filled in my own name, address, city and zip code. Used Buenos Aires as province and 12345678 as ID. Payed with my credit card and got this error:

'There was a problem processing the transaction. Contact your credit card issuer or select another payment method. For help, visit support.nintendo.com'.

I read the 6 pages on this thread, but don't see a solution for my problem. Unfortunately.

Just spent less than $5.50 on Hollow Knight and Stardew Valley. Awesome tip. Thanks OP.

It's most likely your card. I tried with a Visa from a local bank and got the same error. I ended up using a digital bank and it worked perfectly. Another open is to contact your credit card and see if you can authorize the transaction as I'm sure they're the ones blocking it.

Thank you for the advice. Which digital bank did you use? Can I use it as well? For example, I heard about Revolut, but apparently their cards get refused as well. I'll contact my bank to see if they can be of assistance.

I used Revolut. First transaction with it went through without a problem. I then decided to make a second purchase right after and it was blocked. With Revolut you can authorize the purchase on the app, which I did and it worked after another attempt.

Your credit card is doing the same thing, it's blocking the transaction for fear of fraud since I'm sure you rarely make purchases in Argentina. If you were to call your credit card after making the declined transaction they would clear it and then walk you through making the purchase.

Anyone know if you can buy multiple codes of the same game? For example to gift to people?

I'm giving up. I have contacted my credit card company. They said the transaction didn't come through at all. That it must be a problem on Nintendo's side.

Then I opened an Revolut account, but that didn't work either. They couldn't help me, because they also said no transaction was being made. They couldn't make any changes or verify any payment. Too bad.

1 - From accounts.nintendo.com, change your country to Argentina
2 - Visit the Argentina eShop (https://store.nintendo.com.ar/)
3 - For payment, use your real name and address, but select a random Argentinian province, insert a random 8-digit as your DNI (e.g. 12345678) and use your ZIP code (in my case Postal Code) as CPA.

I paid using my Rogers MasterCard and received my code by email a few minutes later.
I used a Tangerine Mastercard with zero issues for anyone who is having trouble finding a card that works. Used the above method, but I made a new account since I don't want the hassle of changing regions.

I can confirm this...I also used Tangerine and created a secondary account and had zero issues.

eshop-prices.com shows MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order as the cheapest on Argentinean shop, but I can't find it there. Do you know how it's possible to buy it from there for under 50$?
I would like to know this as well. I tried to look but it seems that the eshop doesn't have it. There seems to be a limited # of games on the shop.

I can't get it to work. :-(

I am using Rogers MC just like OP and followed the instructions and still getting an error about the payment method. I tried my Visa as well and still didn't work. I tried entering postal code with/out space, different random province, different random DIN and still no luck....
