The only thing that can be swapped on PBS is books.

You can post them over there and transfer your credits over to here.  You are only supposed to post books in the book bazaar.  The posting process over there is pretty quick and painless like it is here, so it shouldn't be a big deal.  Hope that helps!

It's no bigger trouble posting the DVDs there than trying to work something out in the book bazaar.  And transferring credits between the two is VERY simple.

You can sign up on swapadvd with any number of dvds, even no dvds.

The interface for transfering credits is on the DVD site, but not on PBS, so it has to be done from there.

But if you truly don't care about the credits, I think you can offer them as freebies here on PBS.

Yes, once you get 2 DVD credits, you can swap them back to PBS for 3 PBS credits.

You might want to check on that, on PBS and SwapaCD you cannot transfer credits until you RECEIVE 2 orders first. You might not have a problem, since you would not have received the free credits for signing up, but I think regardless of that, the system is set to not allow you to transfer credits if you have not received 2 items.

The alternative possibility, is to offer them as a freebie with a 2 book order from your shelf. That is an allowable offer in the Bazaar.

Sherry, I read the HC, and it's referring to transfering the free credits over. I think that if the OP receives the credits from transactions and does not post enough DVDs to get the free credits, it should be OK.
