You could buddy the credit back to R & R....back to the site.

I have a couple books on cassette if you'd like to try one...I would be willing to send it to you and then you could just buddy the credit to me...I know the system says 2 credits for a book on cassette but, I'd agree to just receiving on if you want to try a cassette book.


I have:

You could just leave it sit.  You were given 3 when you signed up, so you won't be losing anything.

There used to be a thread about members who requested books for different charities. You could donate it to them.

You could try selling it for a couple bucks in the Book Bazaar, but I think PayPal's fees may make that not so worthwhile.

Did you post enough books to get the free credits to begin with?  If so, considering your very short tenure here, you may just want to consider giving it back to the site.  If not, and it's a credit you earned from one of your own books then you can offer deals in the book bazaar, get rid of your remaining books for credits to transfer over, or buy credits, or sell your one credit.

Here's a case where checking out a profile is enlightening: no books shipped. Unless all  trading was done through bazaar deals, this would be an original free credit.  Did I see something in the rules about transfering original (free) credits? Hmm.

Unless you have received at least 3 books here at PBS, you will not be able to buddy anyone a credit. If you do chose to close your account you will need to contact R&R through the grey Help Center Tab at the top of the page. Click there and choose Contact the PBS Team. They can close your account for you and if you decide you are giving them back the credit you can mention it in the message you send.

Penny,  I read your profile.  I know you can't read due to your condition, but isn't there something one of your children or huband would be interested in getting?
