    Where to sell a load of CDs?

    I thought I'd read a thread on this - but can't find it.

    I'm having a massive clear out and I've got (literally) 100's of music CDs that I want to get rid of - anybody know if there's somewhere that buys in bulk - I realise that what with streaming and ripping that they are not worth much nowadays - but it'd be nice to get back at least some of the 1000s that I spent (somewhat foolishly!)

    Cheers

    musicMagpie | Sell Your Stuff Online | Sell Stuff for Cash - Best Prices Paid

    You wont get much but you can see how much you will get

    You can scan the barcodes so it will be fairly quick

    Or ebay them as a job lot

    I sold a load of games through Music Magpie - I didn't get much, but looking at ebay etc I got about the same as I would have there, also I just had to box them up and deliver them to a local shop - no postage or anything

    Donate them to a charity shop and get that warm feeling inside knowing you are helping others.

    I donated mine instead of "Music Magpie", I think it was about 50 DVDs and Music Magpie offered my about 14.

    I would rather a charity shop got 1-2 each for them and make much more.

    Just been talking to a colleague - he sold his entire VHS, CD & DVD collection - some 800 items - through Amazon Marketplace. Some of his VHS tapes went for decent money.

    All my local charity shops get too many music CDs and they can't cope with them at all. They will only take music likely to appeal to a wide audience and even then, they are very careful.

    We took about a hundred CDs into CEX a while back. I felt sorry for the poor guy behind the till, but he was very good-natured about it! We ended up with about 80 of store credit (would have been less for cash).

    While music magpie is an idea, have a look and see if you've got a CEX (entertainment exchange) near you. They buy a lot of music/games/phones, etc. When I sold two of my old sony ericsson phones envirophone would give me about 2 each while CEX gave me 45 cash for both which I was happy with. You can check on their site estimated prices for stuff.

    I am just going to keep mine, provided they don't deteriorate, it'd be nice to have something tangible to play years from now plus I like reading the sleeves.
    My dad recently just passed down a bunch of his old vinyl,Beatles,Elvis,Led Zep none too rare or in good cond but nice to have and play.

    Even Beatles albums pressed in the 80's go for decent money.
