Default Where to sell DVD's

Hey guys...over the years I've been replacing my dvd's and changing over to blu ray. I've got about 56 all in pretty good condition. So im just opening to suggestions of where to sell them and what your opinions are. The most obvious place would be eBay but I've never used it. BestBuy uses a buybak system and you get a gift card but im trying to get some actual cash.

Unless its a super rare edition or a big set, you're more than likely not going to get any more for them than the $5.00 coupons that BB is offering, or the trade in program through WB. If you sell em on ebay you're lookin at a couple dollars TOPS for most titles. If you're still interested, ebay is probably the best bet or half.com, or amazon marketplace...

Yard Sale, honestly, it's not really worth the trouble sending out a DVD you made $4 w/ shipping, you might as well sell it for $2 at your yard sale. It's sad how cheap DVDs are now, thats why I went Blu-Ray, if you don't care for a movie, people will buy it for more than a DVD even if it is a crappy movie, I recently got outbidded on ebay for Meet the Spartans Blu-Ray. -.- I thought I'd win it for sure. LOL.

Garage or yard sale for sure. One place NOT to go is used videogame/movie stores. They want to give you $0.25 for a 2-disc deluxe Gladiator and turn around sell it for $8-10 (or more).

If you do it at a store, getting cash will get you a whole lot less value then if you went with store credit. Like maybe even 25-30% less.

My local pawn shops take them for $1 so I took 15 of them there recently. Just old titles I bought and probably only watched once, ever. Those "i thought it was okay, ehh what the hell I'll buy it." movies that you regret later. I figured why not sell them for $1 now before they start taking them for less. I know a couple of years ago the pawn shops took DVDs for $2 now it's $1. The value of used DVDs is getting worse.

I sell all the time on ebay and make a pretty good return. Lately I've been trading in on Amazon, too. I have a lot of OOP stuff and that goes for a good price.

What?

DVDs being cheaper are the reason you pay more for blu-ray?

And then once the next format comes out, blu-rays will be $3-4 a pop and that will be your reason for upgrading again?

Digital media never holds it's value... ever.

Be sure to check if your DVD is out of print before getting rid of it...it should be worth a lot more. I'd never let go of my Vision Quest DVD (unless it came to blu), but if I did, I could get a decent amount for it.
