Barnes and Nobel requires a valid credit card to be on file before allowing any FREE books to be downloaded.
During our test of this product we used a prepaid VISA card and was declined access to their free book library stating that our payment was declined.
The books we were downloading were listed as FREE and therefor no payment should have been initiated, yet they declined access to the books.
For this reason we give Barnes and Nobel an "F" for their tactics.
In today's online world customers need to protect their credit card purchases from abuse and theft. One way to do this is to use pre-paid credit cards.
