Hi I am new to this site and have only 2 credits.  I sent away 4 books last week and now I need to order six.  However, they have not received their books yet so they have not been credited to my account.  Does anyone know how I can order with not enough credits?  I need those books for college next week so need to order asap??  Please help me!

You can buy credits in the kiosk, or some people sell them in the bazaar.  In the future, if you use PBS DC and printed postage you get your credit as soon as you mark your books mailed.  Even if you can get the credits and order all 6 books, it's just not possible to have them in your hands for school next week.  I feel your pain though, I start school next week and I won't even find out which books I need until tomorrow.  Good Luck!

I agree about buying the credits.  You can usually find a deal in the bazzar, and the credits will be way cheaper than buying almost any book for school.  I really wish I had known about something like this site when I was in undergrad and taking tons of English classes.  I could have saved bunches of money.

But... if you need the books next week, it's doubtful they'll come. I mean, we're talking about SIX BOOKS. With media mail being an average of TWO WEEKS, and holiday mail still getting back to normal, the math just doesn't add up.... sadly...
