is it possible to just use your gift card for e book downloads, or do you have to have a credit card on file, barnes and noble is telling me that you have to have credit card on file to even be able to use a gift card.

yes you do have to have a default credit card on file to satisfy drm. if you have a gift card in your account it will pull from the gift card and not your cc when you buy an ebook.

To set up an account on a nook, you do have to have a credit card w/United States Billing Zip Code on your account. But if you are hesitant to use one of your own, You can go to a local bank and buy a pre-paid visa gift card. That works for me, the only problem I had was the first one I got at 7-11 or target and didn't have the billing zip. When I went to the local bank branch and got a pre-paid visa gift card from them, I Just entered that with the banks address and voila! I was up and running in no time. I No longer have a balance left on my gift card and it is still working fine. I Still physically go into the stores to get gift cards which I use to purchase my e-books and that helps me keep within my book buying budget. Hope this Helps! Happy 2011
