I mailed out a book today that should have gotten me 1 credit using DC/Quick Credit...I got 2 credits added to my account.  I checked the credit registry and sure enough, they both came from the same book. 

I'm assuming this is a system glitch unless PBS is feeling exceptionally generous today.  Anyone else have this issue?

I'm going to let PBS know that I was double credited but was curious if it was only me!

That's never happened to me. I would let PBS know too. How weird. Is it your birthday? :-P

Was it an audio book?  They are worth 2 credits.

Subject: none of that

I let PBS know and they attempted to remove the extra credit but they added another one instead!  Now I have 2 extra!

The last entry in my credit registry says "Reason: Remove extra credit given by server problem" but it was a green 1 instead of a -1!  I contacted them again...

Wow!  Can you please call my bank and work your magic on my checking account?

This kind of reminds me of  a Friends episode.

Seriously, I had a similar issue once - I got deducted a credit twice for ordering a book, TPTB took care of it quickly.

That's too funny! Must be your lucky day. Better pick up a lottery ticket.

Sounds like a server hiccup.  I'd say the server is a wee bit tipsy!

lol I was thinking the same thing about a Friends show. It was the one where Pheobe (spell?) found a THUMB in a soda can I think.

It does sound like your lucky day and it is wonderful to see how honest people can be. I know it can be annoying though since you have to go through all this STUFF just to fix a mistake.
