Hey Jason,

Was wondering if you would answer something for me. I don't mean to hijack the thread. I have not ordered the credits, so people feel free to contact Jason! I was just wondering what makes you drop so low to $2.00 per credit? Maybe you have so many you don't care? Maybe you're quitting PBS? But with the raised mail rates, cost of PBS 55-cents extra, it can cost around $4 to mail a book. So you're not even recouping half. Of course, people who bulk mail a lot of books together feel a bit of ease with the credit rates, but I'm curious. I guess I'm also curious why anyone would even try to sell credits for $2.75 or even $2.50 or well, $2.25 anymore. When people are doing $2 and $2.05 (which I just saw), why would you think you could list them for anything higher and get buyers?

This is all just sheer curiousity. Jason, if it's a private reason or just a not-my-biz, feel free to ignore this! Hope you get a lot of takers soon, I doubt you'll have any trouble!

By the way, all this dropping has made me donate almost all my books except audios. When I can BUY credits to get books for $2.00 each, it makes no sense for me to mail them for $3.50-$4.00. I know it's the goodwill of keeping PBS going and getting my books to other members (which I love to do), but not if it costs me a ton.

Credits have been sold.

Heather, to answer your question -- I'm not quitting PBS, but I do have a lot of credits. I like being able to sell them quickly. I'd rather lose a couple of bucks and move the credits fast than wait for a while for someone to take me up on a higher price. Maybe I'll bump them up a little in the future, but for now, I'm happy with $2/credit.
