SCAM: Not Really Free

Beware of the nook book ParaNorman. The webpage says FREE in massive orange letters and below that says $0.00. However if you press buy, like I did, you'll get charged $6.99 + tax.  Meh.

So call CS talk to tHem.  You have the screen capture and most likely the email with the charge.  Btw, the free version is only a preview.  There are two versions out there, it looks a mistake and this pointing to the wrong version.  When you clicked on buy now, did you get a popup window that daid your card would be charged?  In any event, I'd call CS.

I've had this problem in the past with books that have 2 nook book versions listed. I avoid buying from such a listing. It appear the B&N site has problems handling this. Call CS, I did and I got a refund.
