Note: I'm bumping this very old thread because it was such a success last time, and I have more credits to sell!

Most of the money I get from selling off spare credits goes to Amazon to buy more books, so I thought I'd try to eliminate the middleman. Here's a fun way to instantly buy credits, and I get the money directly into my Amazon account!

1) PM me with how many credits you want to buy.  I'll PM you with my email address.

2) Go to Amazon's gift e-card site https://www.amazon.com/gp/gc/order-email/ref=g_gc-dp_btn_email and email me an e-card for the amount of credits you want.  It's instant and free!

3) I'll transfer the credits to you!

I have 20 credits to sell, $3 each, $14 for 5, or $55 for all 20.  I'm hoping to get a bunch of books out of them!

What a cool idea! Maybe you will start a new trend.

It is a pretty cool idea, I think I might try this if I ever have to sell any credits, but I doubt I will, because I'm always seeing new books I want, or someone in my family wants.

My credits are taken - (thanks, Octavia!) - but I've had another PBSer ask if she could use the idea, too.  Hopefully, she'll post here and you can buy her credits instead.

This is a neat idea.  I had someone offer to pay me with an Amazon or B&N gift card a while ago.

Unfortunately, I don't buy books from either place, so I had to decline.  If I'm buying new books I'll buy from the local bookstore.

I suppose I could see if you need a PayPal account to buy eBay gift certificates. Those I'd use!
