My annual membership expires next week.  Thinking of not renewing it.  Can I still swap books or am I forced to renew. I have 24 free swaps.  I take it the money I have left in kiosk would not be refunded if I leave this site.  Not sure what I am going to do.  I still have 9 credits. It seems my wishlist books are never available and it has been months since I have sent out any books. I get real confused trying to find out the answers on my own.  Any help would be appreciated. thanks db

Debbie, if you do not renew your membership, you go a la carte. You will no longer be able to post on the forums and your wishlist will drop to 100. Your swap fees will stay with your account, and so will your credits and PBS Money. You can still swap books too.

There is another option if you want to trade credits for a limited membership, there is a thread in the book bazaar where you can do this. If you want to post in the forums and have a wishlist over 100 this might be the way to go.

Second what Rebecca said. I want to say..double check me..you can give 5 credits to a member who in turn buys you a limited membership. 8 credits for standard.

Also, and I couild be wrong, but I don't think they refund any money you have in the Kiosk. Good luck with whatever decision you make. Pat
