Forgive me if this is a silly question. I wanted to make sure there is no time period in which I have to use my credits. Thank you. :)

Thanks, Rebecca. I didn't think they did but wanted to double check. :)

It is better for PBS if we use the credits. Something about the bookkeeping. But no expiration.

If an account is dormant -- no books ordered, purchased, or mailed for a year -- the terms of service say that the account may be closed and the credits forfeited.  I think "may" is the operative word.  I know of a couple of cases where the administration restored the accounts and credits of people who'd let the account go dormant -- when they asked.
