I have an Apple account.  (That's obvious, because I'm here in this forum.)   I want to download free applications from the App Store, but I don't want to register my credit card.  Likewise, I don't want to create a new account, because that's yet one more complication to my already busy life.  But http://support.apple.com/kb/ht2534 says that the only way to use the App Store without a credit card is to establish an entirely new Apple account.  Surely there is an easier way.  Surely I can use my existing Apple account to download free applications.  Isn't there?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 4 gig RAM
