    I wrote a guide on how to buy from Mexico on HP.  I haven't used it this expansion, but has worked for me and most users for previous ones.  Hope it helps

    1. Go to google wallet settings https://pay.google.com/payments/u/0/home#settings
    2. Scroll down to Country/Region and attempt to edit it. You'll get a tooltip to make a new profile instead. Click this
    3. Use an address generator to fill out your address in Mexico. Use your real info for everything else, such as name. http://www.datafakegenerator.com/generador.php
    4. Select your old google wallet with your home country. Scroll to the bottom of the settings menu to delete it
    5. Add your card to the Mexico wallet. Make sure to put your real billing address, not a fake one
    6. Open HS on your android or android emulator, such as Nox
    7. Your system may still display the wrong/old price but tap to buy a bundle anyway. Don't worry, you won't actually buy anything until after a few more confirmation screens
    8. HS will connect to google play for payment. It should display the cost for Mexico, but sometimes converted to a different currency. From here, make your purchase normally
      1. If you get the error "your payment cannot be completed", contact Google and your bank to let them know your accounts haven't been commandeered by a Russian hacker
        1. If Google tells you there is a "currency missmatch" and your bank tells you there are no charges, wait to contact Google again later and hope for a more lax representative.  There have been several instances where people have run into this situation and resolved it by simply hitting different Google reps
    9. Profit. Also enjoy cheaper prices on everything else in the play store too!

    The "A"s of FAQ

    • No VPN or spoofing required at any time. Using these may actually cause problems
    • Does not work with PayPal or iOS
    • Does work with emulators. In fact, if the above guide doesn't work, I recommend doing the steps again from 6 onwards with Nox
    • Does not work with Argentina because they are region-locked. Mexico and Russia have been confirmed to work, the others are untested. Feel free to try the rest of them
    • Tested on all servers except China
    • If you don't have a google wallet account, just skip the delete your profile part
    • If you already have a google account, making a new one (rather than a new google wallet) has been reported to interfere with the payment process
    • You can delete your Mexican google wallet after this is done and make yourself your old account back. Personally, I'm keeping it Mexican for the better play store deals though

    Thanks for guides guys! I have one question though. Are there any chances of getting banned for doing this? It would be my first time and I just want my account to be safe :)

    If you change your address to Mexico, it's not likely that you'll be banned. However, it's EXTREMELY likely that you'll be deported to Mexico by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, so be aware.

    I mean, it's a children's card game.  They'd probably just put you in a cage with the other children instead.  As a gamer, you're probably living without soap/toothpaste anyway lol

     

    On a more serious note, I've been helping people using this method since boomsday and no one has gotten banned yet.  It's perfectly safe :)

    This is an amazing guide. Thank you everyone.

    I am just wondering, is there any reason why you use Mexico as the new country?

    I tried getting Blizzard balance on the korean site but got a message that I could only purchase balance in my local currency.

    I believe payments can only work with credit card.

    I wasn't able to select credit card as a payment option, only Blizzard balance

    That just happened to me too. Guess I'll have to keep buying with my Brazilian Google Wallet Account. It's a good deal too

    I don’t mean to ressurect this post but this topic is so interesting and I was wondering if there is the possibility of using this trick on PC or iOS/Mac devices. 

    Thanks!
