You should have a word with your credit card company and ask them to
add your work address as an additional AVS address. I've done this
successfully with all my cards, though I've sometimes had to insist it
was possible when the first person at the call centre didn't know how.
Incidentally, if this article is to be believed, the 'address' check is
surprisingly weak: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7448187.stm
