I'm not going to stay. Am I stuck with the postage? It's very annoying. I just bought $25 worth about a week ago.

I wonder if you can gift the postage to someone.

Nora, you cannot trade your PBS Money.  However, you can stay with A LA CARTE membership, use printed postage and you never have to pay the swap fee.  Each time you use PBS POSTAGE, it comes with a free swap fee.

Nora I don't know this for a fact but I think you should be able to use your pbs money to buy books from the marketplace

Yes. You can buy books from the marketplace. I ordered one to use up my PBS money.

I must not be understanding something and I don't know what. Why are you so anxious to leave? You have $25 in your account. Great!! You don't do anything and automatically become"a la carte" which basically means that almost everything stays the same. You have the same wish list. You order books and use your credits and PBS money. Though you use it slightly (50 cents) faster than before.After you order about 8 books you then decide how you want to go: $20, $12 or more a la carte. Whats the panic for?

Thomas, what makes you think I made this decision in a panic? Here is my OP, please identify the panic for me:

BTW I just did what Nancy d. suggested. So yes, Nancy, you can do that.
