Does anyone know how to get XCode on Mavericks without a credit card?

I have just installed Mavericks and now can't use XCode without updating it. XCode is free, but it needs to be installed via the App Store or iTunes. I don't have a credit card.

I called Apple Support after spending the entire morning trying to get around the credit card block. It took nearly an hour to get through and then repeat my email address, etc, before reaching a support person who could help. The support guy told me that it is possible to choose "no credit card" when setting up an Apple ID. That option was not available when I set up my ID. To confirm this, I created another ID.

He then said that he would talk to a supervisor. He disappeared and the line went dead.

Could someone please help? Unfortunately, I cannot get hold of a credit card and even if I could, I would not want to use one on this shared machine.

It has been a pretty frustrating week with Apple. A cord caught on fire (they won't replace it) and my year-old harddrive crashed irreparably (they won't pay for that either). Right now, all I want is to use XCode. Is there any way around this block?

Ashwin, thanks a lot for that link. I'm in Europe right now and your link took me to a US site where the option, "none" does appear on the credit card page. It looks like only US users can select "none." So I provided a US address and signed up that way.
