I had a quick question. This may not be the right spot but I checked the other sites and couldn't find the answer. I am a member of both the other sites, CD Swap and DVD Swap. Can I transfer credits from there to my account on here? If so, how? Thanks everyone!

If you go to your My Account Tab, the second to the last option on the sub-menu is Transfer Credits.

It isn't an even exchange. I don't know what th CD rate is since I don't do that one. But a PBS credits is worth 1.5 DVD credits.  Also I think there is a minimum transfer of 6 credits.

1 PBS credit = 1 CD credit

3 PBS credits = 2 DVD credits

There's no minimum to transfer but there are no partial credits.  So you can't transfer 1 DVD credit for 1.5 PBS credits, there's a minimum of 2 in that direction.  You also cannot transfer your free credit for posting 10 items.

Thanks everybody. I am not real big on swapping CD's or DVD's but I had some I was getting rid of so I wanted to know if I could transfer those credits to PBS. Thanks again:)
