I would subscribe immediately if I could do it with neteller or moneybookers or even bank transfer. but no...
I just got a visa card for these kind of things. don't really need a credit card, but it's just the most practical way for ordering/paying for stuff from outside finland. I got an osuuspankki visa, and it works as an atm card as well, so one card less to carry around in your wallet.
and a lot of stuff, like dvds, are actually cheaper to purchase online. as are school books, and they're also delivered a lot faster. akateeminen kirjakauppa etc. take sometimes weeks or even months to deliver the book you need now
, but ordering it straight from the publisher gets it to you in days. usually delivered to your door (because university books are so god damn expensive they often include delivery), and maybe a third cheaper. one graphics book I ordered from england came the next day
oh, and anthias, you have the right idea. but in practice it just doesn't work, because you can't stop yourself from joining in tournaments.
