I know this is a long shot, but when I first started PBS for some reason I put 5 dollars on my account and I really don't want it there but have no choice to have it there now.  I was wondering if someone would sell me 2 credits for the 5 dollars.  Thanks for reading....

Ellen,

I think even if someone was willing to take you up on this offer there is no way to transfer PBS cash between people.

sorry to be the bearer of bad news,

That's what I was going to say, you can't use PBS money to buy credits. It's only good for DC and postage I believe.

Sorry, I would if I could though.

I made the same mistake, Ellen, and ended up with PBS cash that I really didn't plan on using. the one thing it is nice for, when you are short on credits is to put DC on before you mail a package. You can do it for only .43 and still use stamps for mailing. the nice thing about that is that you will get your credit for books mailed out a lot quicker than waiting for people to mark a book received. I only do this when I am desperate for credits.

Maybe that will help,

Thanks Cindi, I didn't know about that.  Maybe I will put some money into PBS just for that reason alone, I'd like to make sure I get credits for books I send. 

 

Thanks again!
