Especially since I have fake Facebook/Google accounts on my main browser

Curious, did you create a full blown fake persona or just email, name and a password? Would you use real billing or shipping details with a fake account somewhere?

Did you have any other challenges to overcome for this model to work for you?

Why the hell would anyone give Facebook any billing or shipping addresses at all?

Basically, I just set up a fake name and throwaway email address. I don't use these accounts for anything I actually purchase. I do have real Google/Facebook accounts, but I use a separate browser for those, so there is no tracking of searches/web usage under my real name.
