Unfortunately, you cannot ask for more than 1 credit for this book.  Here's the help center rules specific to this:



Can I ask or offer more than 'PBS price' for a particular book?



  • A bound book (= paperback, hardback) "costs" 1 credit on PBS (no exceptions), and
  • an audiobook "costs" 2 credits on PBS (except for some "children's-length" audiocassette items, which cost 1 credit each).

If you feel that your book is too valuable (or too costly to ship) to be swapped for "PBS price", you should not Post it here.

You also may not offer more than "PBS Price" for a book.


  • Because if the book is Wishlisted, offering more than the PBS "price" for the book may allow members to leapfrog over others in the Wish List for the book. This obviously is not fair, and will not be tolerated.
  • Because even if the book is not Wish Listed, a "free market" system could lead to "bidding" for a book, and auctions are NOT permitted on PBS.


  • Auctions are subject to state laws, and as PBS members belong to various states, this could be illegal.
  • Also, we want all members to have a fair chance to get books on PBS. Pitting those who have lots of credits to spare against those who don't have a lot of credits at the time goes against the very spirit of PBS--the fair sharing of books, with everybody equal.
