You might be able to use pre-paid credit cards that you can buy from a supermarket.

I know some CVS's have pre-paid visa cards that are specific for online purchases. Those work just fine.

Don't prepaid cards usually cost a few dollars? You might as well just give those dollars to the site and get an actual 1-month membership instead of a trial.

...although you would still need a card...

Shows how much i payed attention x3, didn't even see the trial part.
But hey once you use up your trial you're bound to fall in love with ad free high quality streaming, and you'll continue the membership anyways :D

Haha, well my first thought was to just buy infinite cards specifically for more free trials, which is really cheap and stingy, and still costly, except now the cost is to support the bank instead of Crunchyroll. And we wouldn't want that.

How old do you have to be to get those pre-paid credit cards?

No online transaction method that I know of allows you to bypass the credit card requirement — it's the only reliable way to ensure you are the person you claim to be. E.g. if it was possible to just bypass the requirement, people would be signing up for free trials every few weeks using new accounts. Okay, maybe they can do so using prepaid cards but they cost real money as someone mentioned earlier so why not just go for the real thing.

I was a skeptic before -- now I'm a premium member. Loving it so far!
(P.S. I just got a guest pass that I can share with you, if 48 hours is enough of a sneak peek )

Ask a family member if they can use theirs and give them the money each month. However, If you dont give them the money realize not just that there's going to be a conflict, but they can call up Crunchyroll and cancel it themselves.

If you have a bank account, you can use paypal. Thats what Ive used for this site.

But for the 7 bucks a month the anime membership costs, youcan ask a parent to suppliment that with any allowance you may get, or ask for a membership for christmas.

You need a valid Credit Card or PayPal account to sign up for the trial.

You can go here:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-750167/48-hour-all-access-guest-passes

And ask for a 2 day Guest Pass.

I use a coinstar to pay for Crunchyroll membership. Put $8 on the Coinstar for Rixty (Rixty takes a fee) and you'll be fine. When your buying membership just select the Rixty and you'll get membership fast. If you don't want to renew the membership, turn of the auto renewal at the rixty settings on rixty.com.
