|Kindle app store problems

Amazon has been extremely unhelpful in helping me figure out the solution to this problem, so I'm wondering if anyone else knows something I don't.|
I have a "kindle 1" as opposed to the newer models.
I was trying to download some free apps, and it won't let me do it. I tried using a giftcard, but apparently you have to put in a credit card before it lets you do that.
I don't want to actually use my debit or credit, so I put in a card for a bank account I haven't activated, and I also tried a card I canceled, one that has 2014 as the expiration. I thought that would work because it's a free app, they're not supposed to charge me anything. Is it really that sensitive? It actually lets me save it, so it seems like it wouldn't matter.
None of these things work. I put in my correct billing address (I know some people have problems because they are not in the US, but mine is), but whenever I click download the "free" app, it keeps giving me an error message that sends me back to credit card and billing address info.
Again, Amazon won't help. They want me to call them on the phone, and then the'll find out that I don't want to use my debit card and they'll think the matter solved when they tell me to use a working debit card.
