So I've been looking at ipodmeister.com and am tempted to flog them my cd collection, which has been gathering dust in the attic for years since I ripped it all to iTunes. |
I've got about 400 cd albums and about 300 cd singles. Might even flog my DVD collection too (about 100).
Ipodmeister don't take cd singles, which is a pain in the butt.
Has anyone got any recommendations for uk based buyers of CDs and DVDs - anyone had any success doing this ?
Selling CD/DVD collection - suggestions ?

Sell them individually on Amazon Marketplace. You'll get so much more moolah - and may even discover a few stupidly 'rare' titles in amongst all of those CDs.

I sold a load of CDs and DVDs on Play.com and got a surprising amount for some of them.

Obviously you'll be deleting the digital equivalents when you sell them.

I've used Music Magpie several times. You don't get very much for your discs but it's quick, convenient, and they pay the postage costs.
But you'll likely receive more selling on Amazon or PlayTrade.
As this is an old thread I was wondering if Play or Amazon are still the best place to sell your CDs and DVDs? Will be moving some time this year and want to clear out all my unwanted.
Don't think Amazon buy either do they? Thought they were just games and books.
To be frank, you're looking at pennies these days. If you need to clear space then you're effectively getting paid a small amount to get rid of unwanted "rubbish", which is great, but don't expect to get any real value out of the exercise.
Why not do up a list and stick it up here on EG? You can make a few quid more than bringing it to a shop.
I've been recently buying CDs from a heavy metal forum I frequent - I'm getting loads of stuff I want on the cheap (but not silly cheap, so it's worthwhile for the seller), they're making rooam and offload unwanted stuff, and the albums are going to good homes that'll get use from them.
Yeah, not expecting to get an amazing overall price for the crap I'm getting rid of, it is all stuff I haven't watched of listened to for years.
I may write up a list at some point soon and post it somewhere on here.

I was thinking the same thing when moving a year or two back (around 600 DVDs, 500 CDs), but decided instead to bin all the cases and get 10 big multi CD cases, which cut the shelves required from about 16 to 2, and meant I could keep all the physical stuff without a wall full of unnecessary plastic. Just an idea if it's more of a space issue than a cash issue.
I sold my DVDs (around 200 IIRC) as a job lot on eBay, got loads more than Music Magpie offered, much less hassle than dealing with individual sales. Even listing them was a piece of piss - downloaded a media manager app for Android that scanned barcodes and converted the entire list into an Excel spreadsheet so I could just pull out the names

Scan them all into MusicMagpie and you'll be able to see which ones are valuable, then sell those ones on eBay and let MM take the 40p jobs off your hands.
