Ok, here's where I am now:
I can buy books, videos, and music without a problem. But. . .
I cannot stream Prime videos (I can download and watch the trailer tho) due to "geographical restrictions".
I cannot buy newspapers or magazines due to "you need a US credit card" which I have and am using to buy the books, videos, and music!
I cannot buy apps due to "you need a US credit card" which I have and am using to buy the books, videos, and music!
wtf? Seriously.

An unusual case, to say the least. At this point, I'd have to get my hands on your PC to see what the heck is going on, because everything that you've posted indicates all is correct. Videos always have a problem, though.

Trailrunner:

I don't get it - virtually all of the apps that I have found related to magazines are free but then one has to insert their subscription info to get the most recent issue. We happen to be big on Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Cook's, Southern Living, Food Network, Sunset and a few other cooking oriented magazines. Once we download the app, then we have to plugin the subscription info to be able to access through our Kindle Fire.

By the way, what did your reference to Prime going away mean? Not only do we take advantage of the free two day shipping, the free prime instant videos but also the free book each month. All in all Prime works out to be a great deal for us!

Prime is free to new accounts for the first 30 days in order to entice you to subscribe to it after that.

Oooh, I want to subscribe to Cooks too. . .well, I can't get far enough to even have to insert the subscription info! I get as far as "free", "get app", "purchasing. . .", then get a notice "Your payment method has a non-USA billing address. A US credit card is required." BTW, this happens in both Cloud and Device options.

There is a Help/Customer Service option I'll try and if that doesn't work I'll try again next month from the states and see what happens.
