I was looking around on audible thinking about maybe signing up for an account or something. Anyway, here is an interesting question If I do not have an audible account and someone decides to gift me with a year subscription, would I have to give audible a credit card to make use of that year's subscription? It is also worth noting that I currently have neither an amazon nor an audible account. I do not want to give either more info than what is truly needed. call me secretive, or privacy focus if you wish. LOL.
