I know I have seen posts of people selling credits.. Can someone give me a basic "low-down" of what to expect should I look for some to purchase?.. I'm not sure the going rate, how it's accomplished since I have never done it before.. Thanks

The going rate right now seems to be somewhere between $2-$2.75 right now.  And most request either paypal transactions, or Amazon gift cards as payment.  If you have a paypal account, you would just tell the seller how many credits you wanted and they would send you their paypal information so that you could transfer the payment to their account.  I think many people request that the transaction go as a "gift" to avoid the paypal fees.  Once they have the money in their account, they transfer the credits to you.

The same is true for those wanting Amazon gift cards.  They send you their email address.  You purchase the egift card and have it send to that email.  Once the email is received, they transfer the credits to you.

Hope that helps.

PBS is set up now that only 50 credits can be transferred in one month.  If the deal is too big, then question it.
