The ads of people with extras are selling them. You can buy them in the kiosk, or find people selling them for about $3.00 or less here in the book bazaar forum.

It would help if you had books on your bookshelf...

I checked out the two posts and I think Kate is exactly right.  And it looks like she got free credits from both posts.  I think it should be reported to the powers that be.

I went to check her profile and see if she had some books I could maybe buddy a credits for but no books and her transactions are hidden I do not trust many people like that...I have always thought who cares how many you have shipped and recived its kinda neat to know but If you are hiding it what are you hiding.I am not saying this to offend anyone just add all those little things makes me feel like we should not trust as easily..

I'm thinking I let myself be suckered by a sob story.  Live and learn I guess.  I was just feeling generous from relieving some aggression by shoving my husband completely off the bed when he tried to tickle me.  LOL

Its kind of like anything in life I am leary to trust... I have been suckered to many time. Such as I do not have enough money for diapers can you spot me money sure its for the kids ....OHH but you got smokes..?? I do not mind sharing credits when I got them but to someone who would do the same.....Not just take advantage. I say no need to return credits, points as long as you pay it forward..

awe, I am usually always low on credits and have had to borrow a credit once for a wish list book that came available when I did not have any. (my worst fear lol) I paid it back of course. I'm very thankful for the nice person to lend me one. every one I have dealt with and talked to have been so nice here and for people to come on here and beg and scam people is just sad. at least you noticed this I feel bad for the people who sent her a credit though.

I'm always leery of people who actually ask for "free" credits outright... it seems like the people with good intentions, who are just temporarily out of credits, will at least offer to pay them back later.

That's too bad. Especially for the nice people who gave a credit to someone like that.

PBS just returned the credits that I gave her, saying that she was dishonest.  Thanks to whoever reported the problem.  I had just resigned myself to feeling like a sucker!  LOL

I had one person ask me for a credit because she wanted a book that I had listed.  I buddied it to her, she ordered my book, and when she got a credit, she gave it back to me.  I, too, am trusting.  I have never been bitten on PBS.  I have lent many credits and have always gotten them back, even when I said to "keep it".
