I have some exercise video-book sets but how do I find out how many credits they're worth before posting them? For example: I have a yoga set that includes a book, a DVD, and a yoga mat all packed in a large box---I'd hate to pay the postage for all that in exchange for only 1 credit.
Depending on if this is a book w/ a DVD or a DVD with a book would determine if you should post it her or at the DVD site.
Per the Help Center this would be a book with accompanying material. The DVD would qualify as accompanying Media, the mat would not. It would be worth 1 credit, but you couldnt include the mat in a Media Mail package.
I dont think the mat would be required to read the book and watch the DVD, but this is not a Audio Book, so would not qualify for 2 credits.
All bound books are worth one credit. The accompanying items do not increase its value so you would only get one credit. If the listing of the book says that it comes with the yoga mat, then you would not be able to post it on PBS at all. It would probably be worth more to post it on the DVD site since the SwapaDVD credits have a slightly higher "value" than PBS credits. You'd still only get one credit per DVD disk over there though (the book and mat are not worth credits on any of those sites) and since the mat would disqualify it for Media Mail, postage would be higher.
From the Help Center:
Books with accompanying media Materials: Yes IF the accompanying materials are included
Books with Accompanying Non-Media Materials: NO
