I actived the card so I'm pretty sure I could use it at least on the
web.   However, the registration process is necessary to get a PIN
number and to use the physical card on an ATM for instance.

I'd like to register but it seems that only US citizens can.


Any solution for foreign users?


I thought the card rules said you could use it at an ATM. To withdraw cash, you would use it as a credit card instead of an ATM card with a pin. I've never used a credit card at an ATM, so I don't know the details.

The cards around here are very US centric. Are they blocking you from registering because of your IP address or is it something else?

I haven't tried to withdraw cash from an ATM, for I doubt it will work without a PIN.  As of using it as a credit card in a shop, I don't know either, but I'll try.

No, I can see the registration form and I could fill it, but it doesn't fit to enter a foreign address (it only ask me for a US state, for instance), and I don't want to enter fake infos.

You may have trouble using a US card in the UK and Europe, since US cards (still) don't have chip and PIN, and shops may be reluctant to do signature transactions, or may ask for a photo ID.

most shops won't care at all. their machine tells them 'signature required' they ask for a signature. that's the entire thought process.

Still, I wouldn't feel comfortable trying.  Especially since it is written "electronic use only" on the card.  I wonder why by the way, since the User Agreement document clearly states that the card could be used in an ATM and shops.   I'll try, but only if I have some cash aside in case it doesn't work.

When they say "electronic use only" it usually just means you can't use them in the old impression type credit card readers. The numbers on the card are not raised and thus won't work in those old card readers.

"Reader" is kind of a stretch, don't you think?

The raised numbers are meant to transfer an impression of the card to some carbon-paper at the point of sale. If you used cards 20 or 30 years ago you would be familiar with this. The image of the card number, name and expiration which are on the front of the card get transferred when the cashier puts the slip on top of the card and slides a roller across them.

The "electronic use only" cards simply have the name and number printed on them, and no raised glyphs.
