    Free my Ass

    Thank you for choosing Audible. A representative will be with you shortly.

    You are now chatting with Jonathan P.

    You: Through 11/26, Audible is offering one free audiobook download for first time listeners. No credit card required.

    You: i want to listen to this... A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity: A Memoir

    Jonathan P: Hello, my name is Jonathan. How can I help you today?

    Jonathan P: Yes.

    Jonathan P: You can get that book for free.

    Jonathan P: As long as we have it on file.

    You: you do

    You: the site is slow

    You: it's asking for credit card info, why ?

    Jonathan P: I apologize for that.

    Jonathan P: Good question, that's because every account requires billing and credit information even if it is just a free trial.

    You: i'm not going to give credit card info just to try it out, thats just stupid

    You: is there a possibility to D/L w/o credit info?

    Jonathan P: Unfortunately, that is the only payment method we accept.

    You: no payment is required

    You: free d/l for first time users

    Jonathan P: Yes, for the free trial there is no payment required.

    You: this is a bait and switch deal

    You: are you telling me that there is no way for me to listen to a book from audiobook w/o giving credit card info. even when it says no credit card info required for first time members?

    Jonathan P: Yes, I apologize for the confusion.

    I wonder if Fahrenheit 451 burns itself off your player once you've paid for it, like Kindle with 1984...
