Does anyone know if you don't use your one free DC within the current month, does it roll over to the next month?  This is all I see in the help docs:

In addition, Gold Key members enjoy one Courtesy Postage Fee per month (each fee = 55 cents, so that's up to $6.60 annual savings), and a nifty Gold Key badge on your member profile, identifying you as a Gold Key Member.

No it is just good for the month.

Yep, just for that calendar month, and the same for the waiver on the .50 CC fee if you use a credit card to buy PBS money. If you don't use it for a particular month, you've lost that benefit.

They don't charge a transaction fee anymore so that is why they decided to give the free postage fee each month.

Ah, I see. That shows you how long it's been since I used either one....I didn't renew my gold key in Sept. when it was up.

I wish it rolled over :) I've had Gold Key for ages and never used PBS postage until now. My first was free but the next two were not. I'll use PayPal shipping next time, I don't need my credits that fast!

Guess I need to get a wish book listed, so I don't lose out :)
