I know that you can transfer credits from site to site (CD and DVD) but can you transfer the money you have?  I have money on DVD that you can use for DC when printing the label, but I don't use it as much...wanted to transfer it over to PBS. 

Thanks for any advice!

I don't see that one covered in the Help section, only about transferring credits.  I'd use the "contact us" link at the bottom of this page and ask the PBS team if that's possible.

Well.... it durn tootin is possible - they just did it for me! I went "hog wild" when signing up for SwapaDVD and had way too much money in potsage there and wanted it switched to PBS.  I emailed and asked to either have it transferred to PBS or refunded to me and they said that they normally don't do it, but they would . . . so it never hurts to ask.

I guess I meant it as there's no button to click on at this time to do it.

That is correct, they don't really do it right now...this is the response I got:

Dear Nicole,

I am sorry but we are unable to transfer money from one site to the other for accounting reasons. If in the future this is an option we will be sure to let the members do so.

Have a great day!

Which is fine, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask!  Thanks for your input everyone!
