Credit Card?

I received a CPO Nook Color for Christmas.  I'm really enjoying it so far but am frustrated because we do not use credit cards and it seems one is required to purchase ANYTHING - even free items!  Can I use a gift Visa or Mastercard (the ones you can buy with a set amount)?  BN or Nook gift card?  What are my options?


Thanks for any help!

Prepaid Cards Work

See this post.


If you buy a prepaid card that can be tied to a physical address, and never deplete the balance, you can then attach B&N gift cards to your account and never use a credit card.  It will work until it's expired, at which time you'd have to replace it - which is the same limitation as a"real" credit card.
