Maybe I'm losing my mind, but I could swear that I recently read somewhere that its possible to use PBS credits to request CDs and DVDs on the sister sites.....if this is true, how do I go about doing that?

From the Help Center:

How to transfer credits between PaperBackSwap, SwapaCD and SwapaDVD

This must be done from your SwapaCD or SwapaDVD account. 

  • The Transfer credits link is currently on the upper right of your SwapaCD or SwapaDVD My Account main page. 


  • The initial (startup) credits cannot be transferred; so you will need to have used them in the account you are wanting to transfer from, in order to be able to transfer any credits from that account. 

    • The startup credits are intended to get members started swapping on that site, and are not intended to be generated and then transferred for use on the other sites.
  • If you have any questions about this function, please direct them to the feedback area on SwapaCD.com or SwapaDVD.com.

    Note that 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).
