At Bookmooch, people are always offering 2 for 1 deals (or more) to clear off their shelves.

I would like to do that here, but don't know how I could give someone their points back.  Any suggestions?

Actually to do a 2-1 deal, the person would order one book from you and would then let you know what other book they wanted, either in a PM or in the deal thread.  You would then send that second book along with the other one that was ordered.  No credit refund needed.

But, to answer your question, you can give someone credits very easily.  Just go to their profile and click on give credits.  Just put in how many credits you want to give, and there you go!

There is also a give credits button on a persons bookshelf if they do not have public profile.

And if you would like to run a deal there are lots of good examples in the Book Bazaar Discussion Forum.

Or, some people (like me) (oh, and Heather, too)  have their book offers in their signature line - see below!

One thing I might add is, when the person PM's  you for the free book, remember to delete it from your bookshelf.   :-)

If you decide to run a deal in the bazaar-do it when you can update frequently.  So you don't get multiple orders for books that have already been requested as freebies.

Thank you all so much!

I hardly ever come to the forums...probably should more often.  Every time I come here I love it, but I just forget to!

Too much internet, too little time.
