I know there was a limit (50 per month) imposed recently on the number of credits a member can sell, but, does the same limit apply for buying credits?

This came up in a PM with a member I am transacting with - and we had different opinions. I can't find an answer in the Help Docs (I'm not saying it isn't there, just I can't find it LOL)

I know there is a limit of 30 per month on credits purchased in the kiosk, I am asking here about purchase of credits from other members. Or really, I am asking is there a limit on the number of credits that can be buddied to your account per month?

I'm not sure about here, but I buy a lot of credits over at Swapadvd.  I was in excess of 50 (purchasing them).  So, I don't think there is.

From the Help Center:

There is a limit of 50 credits/month for credit transfers between members. (This limit does NOT apply to Friends of PBS or other donations, credit transfers to or from Games Moderators, or credits given using the Give Refund button.)

There is no limit on the number you receive from other members. I asked when the 50 credit transfer went into effect.
