Per PBS rules, you cannot charge less than $3.00 per credit

Pamela, the site made a change a few months back that credits cannot be sold for less than $3 as that is about what postage is to mail a book. You will need to change your post or risk getting your account suspended.

This is from the red sticky at the top of the page:

"As of today, July 6th, 2016, there will be a minimum price for Book Credits sold between members of $3 per credit.

You are free to buy and sell Book Credits as always, but you may NOT sell or buy them for less than $3.00 per Book Credit.

  • That also means you may not offer or ask for goods (for example, Gift Cards) that work out to less than $3 per Book Credit.
  • That also means that "incentives" or "bonuses" of any kind must not be offered or asked for.

Sellers, please note that the title of your post must have the price in it, for transparency.

This change is meant to keep the club healthy and working for everyone.

Members who become aware of any infractions should contact us ASAP.  FYI - the rule will be strictly enforced!

This policy goes into effect in all three sites today.

Edited update - 
► Thanks Pamela for taking the full 50 credits. 

PM sent - 50 available - AGC is great - price is the (new) PBS minimum of $3/credit 

- as an aside, there are numerous members already advertising credits for sale with no minimum required, as well as some of them having 50 credits available,

I don't think Pam was asking for credits to buy @ $2.00 each. She was just saying that she used to get them at that price, and it stinks that she has to spend more now.

Thanks y'all for responding. Teresa, I was originally asking for them for 2.00 till the moderators put me in my place. I hate that the credits are now 3.00. That is a big jump. Thank you do much Danny for sending me the credits!!! So as of right now I am up to date and my swapadvd account has more credits now too.
