I seem to remember reading in one of the forums that PBS and TT were/are "sister sites" and that credits could be swapped from one to another, i.e. I can trade 1 TT credit for 1 PBS credit (or something to that effect). I use PBS and TT for trading books only. Wondering if I get low on one site can I send credits from the other..

Thanks

No TT and PBS are not sister sites, they are competitors. The only place you can transfer credits from/to PBS is SwapACD(1 for 1) and SwapADVD (2DVD for 3PBS).

SwapADVD (2DVD for 1PBS).

Just a slight clarification...it's a 3:2 Ratio w/ PBS/CD and DVD...3 PBS or CD credits gets 2 DVD credits and vice versa. 

ETA HC info:

To transfer to SwapaDVD from SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap, you will need to have at least 3 credits in your SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap account.  The minimum number to transfer to SwapaDVD is 3 credits, which are transferred at a ratio of 2:3, which means that 3 SwapaCD or PaperBackSwap credits will convert to 2 credits if transferred to SwapaDVD.

 PBS credits will be transferred 1:1 to SwapaCD (1 PBS credit = 1 SwapaCD credit),  while PBS credits will be transferred 3:2 to SwapaDVD (3 PBS credits = 2 SwapaDVD credits, and vice versa).

Thanks Beth, I fixed my post. My brain was saying 3, my fingers just didn't listen.

I wanna know what TT is too.  I'm going thru all the swap sites I know of in my head and it's not working. :-)
