I've seen it somewhere but I can't find it now, and I've searched the help docs, and several of the forums for this info.  What is the swap ration between the 3 sites?  If I have 18 credits in the DVD site, how many are they worth in the CD site and the PBS site?

I don't see the info just now either.  Been awhile since I've done this, and only from DVD to PBS.  But IIRC it was 2 SwapADVD credits transferred as 3 PBS credits.

I've seen a better chart, but from Scott's link here's the ratio:

  • 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)

Keep in mind that you will not be able to transfer out the startup credits if you haven't spent them. Startup credits are only good on the site they are granted on. If all 18 have been earned from sending out DVDs, then they should convert to 27 PBS or CD credits (18/2*3).
