Barnes and Nobles - Misrepresentation for the Nook Notebook
NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- I was given the Nook for Christmas with a $25.00 B&N gift card. When I tried to purchase nook books with my gift card, it was declined. B&N states you must have a credit card on file in order to download a nook book using my B&N gift card. I find this to be misleading and misrepresenting the Nook. Many people don`t have credit cards nor do I want one. The crazy thing is that it`s their own gift card and one should be able to buy anything at B&N whether online or in the store. Barnes and Noble have a big problem if they can`t handle their own gift card with their customers regarding purchasing the nook books.
If they don`t change this requirement then I don`t think their going to have a long future with the nook especially in competing with the Kindle.
