I've seen a few people here and there comment about spending credits for memberships.....I don't see how to do this.  Is is possible?

(Or was it just wishful thinking people are posting?  I'll join that wishful thinking--if credits are liabilities to them, it'd be nice if they let me cash in credits for membership.)

No, it is not wishful thinking.  I think it is a great idea!

Check out the first post of this very active thread in the book bazaar for all of the details of how it works:

Ah. So it isn't an official feature.

It is not official, but it seems to be a very nice way for members to help each other during this transition time.  I hope it works well and will continue to be an active thread and concept.

I do think it's a fabulous thing for members to be doing.   Didn't mean to sound otherwise. Anyone involved in organizing it deserves many kudos.

The member who set this up really thought it through well.  It's such a nice thing!

I think Saturday is the last day to get a standard membership  for $18.00, after that it's $20.00.

I got my membership that way.  For 9 credits I got a standard one.  It was such a great idea Susan came up with.  I always say " PBS'ers are the kindest!

There is a post in the RAOK forum that due to credit donations (at least) 20 memberships will be available.
