Although avoiding shopping is the main point of Buy Nothing Day, other creative forms of protest are sometimes used. One activity that draws a lot of attention is the credit card cut - up. People will gather at shopping centers with their credit cards in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other. Then, they will cut their cards into pieces. Another activity called the zombie walk is to show the way most people shop. In this walk, participants walk around shopping malls like zombies.

儘管避免購物是不消費日的重點,但有時也會採用其他有創意的抗議形式。其中一個吸睛的活動是剪信用卡。人們會一手拿著信用卡,一手拿著剪刀,聚集在購物中心。接著,他們會把他們的卡片剪成碎片。另一個活動被稱作殭屍步行,是為了展示多數人購物時的模樣。在這場步行當中,參與者像殭屍一樣在購物中心到處遊走。
