How to buy games in lower price

Players from different regions need to pay different prices for the same game on Origin. Using VPN service to change IP address is a very easy and cost-effective method to get better prices for online games

I came across an interesting fact that I could buy games on Origin at a cheaper price when buying through a different country. I noticed this when I buy Witcher 3. Origin quoted $53.99 while I'm connecting to a USA server, but showed the same game listed for 35.99 USD when Mexico server is on and €53.99 for European IPs. I finally bought the game through the Mexico server, saving a lot. In case of not be tagged as a fraud transaction, you can inform the bank that you would be making online purchases through a foreign online shop. Even with geo-location tagging in place, this trick is not illegal, as long as you inform the credit card company beforehand about using your card on a foreign website, the transaction will process.
Activating a VPN simply changed my IP address, and displayed my status as a user located in same region as that of the VPN server I had selected. Restricting access to content based on where you are in the world is a popular strategy, and it's used far too often by multinational tech giants. The brilliant feature of using a VPN is that your IP address and location are hidden from websites, ensuring a private and anonymous online experience. A free VPN is enough for change your IP and purchase the game in a cheaper price. You can use FlyVPN's VPN free accounts, offering about one hour for free each day.
Try purchasing games through a VPN, maybe you'll save a few bucks.
