Can we transfer (book) credits to ourselves if we join DVD swap?

Short answer is yes. You can transfer credits to yourself among all 3 sites. :)

Is there a list somewhere showing what the credit ratio is between sites?  I saw somewhere that the CD-to-DVD credit swap is 3:2 (DVDs being more expensive than CDs) but what about DVD/CD to books?

This can be done very easily!  You need to have an account at each site you want to transfer to/from.

  • The Transfer credits link is under My Account in your PaperBackSwap, SwapaDVD and SwapaCD accounts. There is also a link under Kiosk at the top of any page on the three sites.

    Note: In order to transfer credits from your accounts,  you will have to have used your initial credits for the site you are transferring from. This is because the initial free credits we give are gifts to encourage members to try out the site. We do not intend for the startup credits to be used on our other sites.  And in order to transfer your initial free SwapaCD credit that you earn for posting 10 CDs to your account, you will need to deposit SwapaCD Money to your account.

  • To transfer to SwapaDVD from SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap, you will need to have at least 3 credits in your SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap account.  The minimum number to transfer to SwapaDVD is 3 credits, which are transferred at a ratio of 2:3, which means that 3 SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap credits will convert to 2 credits if transferred to SwapaDVD.

     PBS credits will be transferred 1:1 to SwapaCD (1 PBS credit = 1 SwapaCD credit),  while PBS credits will be transferred 3:2 to SwapaDVD (3 PBS credits = 2 SwapaDVD credits, and vice versa).
