I've asked this question several months ago, but didn't take the time to follow up on it.

I've got a lot of PBS credits, but am finding that I'm now reading all my books on my Kindle. I understand I can sell my credits to other members, in exchange for Amazon gift cards.

I currently have an Amazon account, but do the members who want to buy my credits actually send me the gift card, or is there a way to put the amount we

agree on into my Amazon account?  Sorry for being confused about this...

If I were requesting an amazon gift card, I'd have them send it via email.  There's a link at the top of the amazon page titled "Gift Cards."  Following that link, just have them sent their own amount for the amount of the card and you're good to go.

Not sure about having others deposit directly to your Amazon account, but they can e-mail 'gift cards' to you.

Yes, have teh buyer purchase an Amazon E-giftcard, and just email you the gift code. You can then either use this gift code for an Amazon puchase, or add it to your amazon account for future use.

Thanks so much Ruth, Denise L. and Mistie for the good information.  Now I guess I have to put my credits up for "sale"on the Book Bazaar.

I appreciate your help!
