I asked this question via the Contact Us link, wondering if the 30-free swap fees (I mistakenly called them "credits") carried over from one membership term to another.  I have copied their response below.  I think this is great news for those of us with "Limited" membership who don't necessarily use up 30 books a year.

Dear Debbie,

Good question.  The 30 free swap-fees aren't free credits. (You would still need a credit to order a book.) They are free Swap-Fees, so you would use them along with a credit when you request a book. (If you request several books from one member, that would mean several credits + one Swap-Fee.) If you didn't have a free Swap-Fee, you would pay 49 cents to request a shipment (plus a credit for each book in the shipment.)

The 30 free Swap-Fees that come with Limited Membership don't expire. They (and any free Swap-Fees that you earn by using PBS Printable Postage, or buy purchasing a credit from the Kiosk) will roll over to the next year.

We hope this information is helpful. Have a great day!

I think the original question  (in another thread) was about the one free swap fee per month........those do not roll over.

I think you are referring to to the one free postage fee per month (or quarter for limited). 

 

Yes, the general assumption was that the Limited Membership's 30 Swap Fees did not carry over. Its great that they do!
