When you're logged into SwapaCD, you can transfer credits back and forth with PBS. When you're logged into SwapaDVD, you can transfer credits back and forth with both PBS and SwapaCD.

On both sites, it's under your My Account page. You just have to click on the arrow that points from the icon of the site you want to take credits out of and to the icon of the site you want to put credits into.

SwapACD and PBS swap directly 1 to 1 but SwapADVD is 2 for 3 from either sister. Meaning, 1 PBS will get you 1 SwapACD and vice versa, but to get 2 SwapADVDs costs you 3 from either of the others. Since DVD pts are more, and the reverse is true then, to get 3 from the others, you only spend 2 DVD pts.

There is a link on each of your main account pages for Tranferring Credits.

Can I add a question to this thread?  Do I have to separately register for the other sites?  TIA!

yes - you have to be registered at all 3 sites - I use the same screen name for all to make it easier.

Not sure why they don't make it so you can swap between sites from any site. Seems silly that you have to go elsewhere to do something with your PBS credits.  Would be nice advertising for the other sites also.
