Do you think how many customers were pissed, because Nooks were sold at much higher price on tv shopping channel as a holiday special? My neighbor old lady is still very mad, she was a regular BN customer. After she found she paid $50 higher than the list price, she complained and learned BN was in with shopping channel. Books-a-million gets her business now.

I'd kind of have to say it's her fault for not shopping around. With my last car purchase, I went to one dealership and test drove a car. They wanted too much, so I went to another dealership and bought the same car for $2,000 less. That's called smart shopping. If I would've bought the car at the first dealership, would that give me the right to be mad and bad-mouth Hyundai?

It could be that the neighbor in question does not have a way to get around to different places to comparison shop. However, I don't think it's the manufacturer that is raising the prices on those shopping channels. A lot of the times it is the channels themselves that are upping the price for a larger profit. It is them that she should be upset with.

Yes, I just did it. My PC asks what program I want to use to open it. I selected ADE and after entering name and credit card was able to read it and save to library.

I tried another book and opened it directly into Calibre.

I have bought books(and other items) on Amazon. Even when using a gift card, to my knowledge, at some point, someone used a credit card.
You can buy Amazon gift cards at a variety of drugstores and supermarkets. With cash. Probably at other retailers but those two I have personally seen in several chains and states.

You do realize you can buy Nook gift cards in stores also, right?

True. But the recipient, or you, still have to have a credit card on file with BN. You don't at Amazon.

Which, I believe was the whole point of the question: the ability of people without credit cards to buy Nooks and Nook ebooks. The B&N social DRM may be minimally intrussive for credit card owners but not everybody has a credit card.
That can be a major hurdle for international Nook sales. Especially with hardware sold via B&M partners.
