And by the way, wouldn't the small anti-credit-card-number group of people be able to use a made-up 16-digit number?
No, B&N checks that it is a valid credit card number and verifies that you have given the correct name and billing address. (Otherwise, it wouldn't be a very effective form of DRM.)

I have the Nook, and I like it. Sometimes the screen seems to go crazy and start blinking to something else, for no apparent reason. No sure what that is all about, but its still a great ereader.
I have tried the Kindle, and I must say it seems to download books smoother, and the battery lasts longer.
I have not found my Nook's battery to last over about 4 days. I have already had to buy a new battery, which I thought was ridiculous. My Nook just would not charge or come on, until I replaced the battery.
Its also hard to organize books on the Nook.
I would suggest you try all of them, and see which one you like best.

File Organization is the one thing I actually dislike - or I should say the lack of file organization.
PDF Handling could be done better; I would have preferred to see it handled better, perhaps build the PDF reader into the Beta Browser and handle them like it does a web page. That'd be an improvement I think.
But worst of all - the thing makes a terrible cup of coffee. All I asked it to do with add grinds to the filter, add water, and turn on the pot. But noooo... couldn't handle it, it used way to few scoops of coffee grinds. Horribly weak cuppa. Sheesh.

There is a Suggested Improvement thread where you can also post these likes and dislikes...
If you post it there your suggestions are being heard and changes in the next update may very well have those suggestions..
