Hello! What do you do if you have a book come up available on your wish list but you have 0 credits at the time? I sent out one book to someone over a week ago, but my credit has not been given to me yet. Just wondering...haven't ever run out of credits before...and, of course it's a book I have been waiting for!!

There are always credits on sale in the book bazaar.   They are running about $2 per credit lately.

Or you can buy credits directly from PBS.  Look under the "kiosk" tab near the top of the page.

You can also ask to borrow a credit. Let the person know when you plan to pay it back. This can be done in the bazaar.

Or keep a buffer of a few credits to cover WL offers.  I pretty much only order WL books at this point and I just keep about 5 credits handy. When I get a couple of WL offers, I post a couple of WL books.

Or I can send you a credit as a gift. Enjoy!
