I noticed lately that my trading on PBS has slowed down some recently. I was looking around on the site and I noticed that there is now  Gold Key Membership. I don't know if I fully understand it . I was wondering if any of you use it and if you do, do you like it and is it worth the extra money? 

Thank you!

I love my Gold Key Membership!  Many of the perks offered aren't useful to me right now.

The waived fee for one transaction per month is great.  The main reason I purchased Gold Key, though, was because of the extra 100 wishlist spaces.  As far as I'm concerned that alone is worth the cost.

I was actually gifted the Gold Key Membership by one of the sweet ladies on here. And I would say it is worth it if you want the extra WL space and the faster shipping, etc. It is nice to put in a book on your shelf and you can see which friend has it Wish Listed. There are a lot of nice aspects to the membership and I will probably renew once mine is up. If you don't use PBS a lot or you don't have a lot of books on your WL, then it may not be worth it to you. They say that when you order a book it will come from the closest person who has it available so that is nice.

I like my Gold Key membership.

When I am ready to post several CF books, I can check and see if any of my friends want more than one of them.  Takes a bit of time to check but worth it.

The first two books I offered to friends, not CF, were declined and they moved on to someone in the FIFO anyway.

Thank you for the replies. I think I am going to try it out.
