Subject: Points for McIntosh Apples???

I grew up in CT and the only apples I ate were McIntosh, which I can only get here in WA for a few weeks out of the year.  I know in New England they are available year round.  Is anyone interested in sending me a box of apples in a priority mail flat rate box in exchange for book credits?

Happy reading,  Karen

Sorry Karen, credits are for books only.

You could always sell credits and then use the money to order a box of apples.

Or you could say use this as a guideline to trade your credits for apples through PM's.  Just say something like:

"I'm selling credits unconventionally, please PM me for details."

All right, here is the PBS Team word on this.

You can sell your PBS Credits here.  (And this should be done in the Book Bazaar, [ ])

You cannot sell anything else.

That means that [ ], you could have posted "Anyone want to sell me some credits?  Contact me by PM if so," and then in Personal Messages explained what you are willing to pay.  But you should not post a topic selling anything for credits.  If in PM negotiations anyone was willing to accept the currency of another site for PBS credits, then you could make the exchange.  

It is a small point, but there you have it.  Don't hawk your wares (whatever they are) for credits.   But you can ask if anyone is looking to sell credits, and negotiate payment with them privately.

We are sure someone else will find a way to do the above inappropriately somehow, and we will hear from members again asking us to clarify, but for now this is the ruling.
