I looked but couldn't find the answer at either site. I have money at SACD but am wanting to close my account there. Can money be moved from one site to another? If so, how? I have sent out a large amount of CDs but the hassle with the postal service over the cost to mail has gotten to my last raw nerve! I want to just use PBS as mailing a book isn't the hassle mailing a CD is.

Thanks,

Kathy

Presently, the only thing you can trandfer are credits between sites, as far as I know. What I did was leave just enough money/credits on my SACD site to cover cds on my WL.  Excess credits I just transfer to here.

I also think if you close the account you forfeit any $$ in your account.

I actually emailed them a while back asking this question. 

The answer I received is that if you close your account, you do forfeit your money because the money is deemed to be earned by the site upon deposit. 

You cannot transfer money between the two accounts. 

Bummer...sorry

Sarah, thanks for letting me know. I did e-mail them last night but I guess I already know the answer.

That is a bummer.
