ok, now its pathetic :D but anyway .........

When you have a book on your wish list (and you are the first one who added it), when it is added, are you able to get it automatically? (as in do you get it w/o using a credit, or do you have to buy it with a credit like I'm assuming)

You'll need a credit to get it :)

If you have it on autorequest it does it for you.  If not on autorequest then you have to accept the WL offer and it deducts a credit from your account.  You have to have credits to request a book.

so if you set it on auto request you won't get any credit deductions?

Yes, you will need to use a credit.  If it is on auto request, it won't ask for your permission to use it first.  If it is on 48 hours, it will give you two days to accept the request and buy a credit if it is needed.

All books cost 1 credit-audios cost 2. 

It will not let you request a book if you don't have credits.  You do not however have to have enough credits to cover your whole WL but it's a good idea to keep a few on hand for WL offers. 

The only time a book may be "free" is if someone is running a deal or offering unpostables but they usually require an order with credits  from their shelf to get the bonus books.

Did you read the help docs?
