Have you ever bought a CD or DVD and then found it a year later and you know deep down you will never watch it again? Well me too, and I think this site may help!
This site will buy Games, DVD's and CD's off of you in exchange for a cheque sent through to you in the post. When I moved in the middle of 2009 it was a great excuse to go through all my belongs and get rid of the stuff I was keeping 'just incase' I think the majority of us are the same and keep things for the sake of it, however I personally would prefer money that a disk that will sit at the back of a cupboard for the next couple of years. So I had my pile of DVD's and CD's to hand and I entered the Musicmagpie website.
If you have never used this site you need to know the process is simple, all you need to do is enter is the barcode number (found right near, you guessed it... the barcode!) this will then search the system and comes up with the correct disk title and the amount they will pay you. I didn't find that this site gave you the best rates on all disks the prices were rather good on games in comparison to other trade in stores and websites so I found myself going through other retailers and comparing to get the best deal. This can be rather time consuming but the pounds look after the pennies!
Once you have entered everything you are wanting to sell you need to complete the selling process, once again this is easy and they will ask for details such as your name, address and a contact number just in case! Musicmagpie do send you pre paid labels for you to send your discs with, this is a great extra as if you are sending a fair few discs the postage could be rather expensive. I personally took my packages to the post office so I could get a proof of postage just so I have some record.
My cheque arrived after about 2 weeks, which considering all wasn't too bad. I would have hoped it had arrived a little quicker however it wasn't a huge amount so I didn't have big plans for it! But the service overall was what you would expect some a service like this. I would recommend this company to anyone who is wanting to make a few extra pounds from any un wanted items and I think you could make a small fortune!
Summary: Easy way to get rid of unwanted items.
