I just noticed the swap areas for CD's and DVD's.  Wouldn't it be great if you could get credits and use them interchangeably for all three?  Even if there was a rate of exchange.  I have a zillion CD's and never use them, as everything is also on multiple MP3 players in my house.  If I could trade them for paperback credits, that would be awesome!

What you are suggesting exists. You can move the credits around from one site to the other.

Click on the Credits Link at the upper right in blue,

On the orange tab under "My account" click on "Transfer credits"

and you can move credits around your linked accounts.

It's 1 book : 1 cd and 3 books : 2 dvd and you must transfer in this ratio.

I think the initial free credits can not be moved.

That is correct, inital credits cannot be transferred for any of the 3 sites. 

Now if we could just get a site for swapping video games I'd be set.  :)

I move a lot of my books credits to the DVD site. I rarely have DVDs to send but I'm overloaded with books.

You can transfer credits between sites. I'm a swapadvd member and do it quite often. The rate tho is a little different cause dvd credits are higher. but it's still very convenient to do.
