(And yes, I know that Puerto Rico isn't in the Pacific ).

You're absolutely right to be unsure about the legal status of the various islands around the UK - it gets very complicated. Some are parts of the UK, some aren't. Some are in the European Union, and others aren't. Eg, the Channel Islands are a part of the UK, but not in the EU and there's no VAT there.
It would be interesting to find out ... about Puerto Rico, I mean. It is a territory of the US, and the people who live there are US citizens, although they cannot vote in US Federal elections. I suppose it would be up to Amazon to decide whether they considered credit cards from US territories as US credit cards or not.
