How to beat Amazon Prime's geographic restrictions?

Hi all,

We signed up for Amazon Prime (US) about a month and a half ago, and we really like it (unlike Netflix, which we never watched). With our VPN, we circumvented the geographic restrictions no problem for that first month and a half, and now it doesn't seem to work. After a little research online, I learned that browsers broadcast location information, so I installed Location Guard on my Chrome browser. This solution worked for 1 day, and then I accidentally left my VPN off the next day, and now I am always blocked by Amazon (even with both VPN and Location Guard in place).

Does anyone know any other solutions for getting around these geographic restrictions? There are, of course, other less savory solutions for getting the content I want, but it seems silly that I am more than happy to pay Amazon for the content, but they won't let me buy it!

Thanks. JW
