I recently mailed (8/15) a book to someone and when I checked their account today I see that the account is closed. What happens to my credit?

The system won't mark it received, but when it gets marked lost you should get your credit.  If you don't, just contact PBS and they'll straighten it out for you :)

I contacted PBs when that happened to me & they fixed it ASAP.

on the 26th day the book will go lost and because the person's account is closed you will get your credit.  no need to contact PBS

This happened to me so it is nice that it happens automatically, you just have to have patience to wait until the 26th day

Thanks for the info. I don't think I ever noticed anyone closing their account.
