Just an FYI per the PBS Help Center:

Is my book okay to post here?

Magazines: NO

  • These often contain advertising and cannot be sent MediaMail; even if not, the category is banned from PBS.

So I'm pretty sure you can't ask for credits for these.

Yes, magazines are unpostable on PBS.

But, I was told by a Book Data Approver that I could post these magazines in the Book Bazaar and I was able to ask for credits here. 

If someone wants some of the magazines, then credits can be transferred to me and I can ship them out, and provide tracking number

I think you are fine, Crystal, by posting here.  I had a bunch of crossword puzzle magazines that I posted here a while ago for credits, and it was allowed (could post here in the Bazaar, though not in the general system).

Kellie, you're right that they can't be posted on our bookshelves here.  In the last few years there was a change allowing us to offer them in this forum for a credit.  From the "How to use this forum" thread -- the read sticky thread at the top (highlighting is mine):

(8) Swapping of "unpostables" in this forum

  • It is OK to offer unpostable media (such as magazines) for credits in "unofficial" swaps in this forum, or as freebies/incentives to order from a Bookshelf . 
  • Remember that non-Media-Mail-eligible items CANNOT be sent using Media Mail postal rate. For example, DVDs and VHS tapes and magazines and pamphlets/booklets without ISBNs are all NOT permitted to be posted at PBS; they can all be offered as freebies/incentives, or for credit in "unofficial" swaps in this forum. Any items that contain advertising (ie, magazines or booklets bought at a supermarket checkout stand), or are not Media items (anything but books, CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes) can't be sent Media Mail, so the whole package will have to go First Class or Priority Mail. DVDs/VHS tapes/CDs may be sent using Media Mail postal rate. Non-media items can't be swapped on the site - the Book Bazaar is not a Flea Market!
