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.

Usually it depends on the movie. Like is it a rare movie or is it common, how old the movie is, etc. Though some places don't really care about that stuff.

I just sent 14 to Best Buy for $80 gift card.

https://bestbuytradein.buybak.com/calculator.bb

All the Best Buy trade in values were higher than Amazon.

They gave me $20 for the Original Star Wars trilogy (special editions not the "real" ones) which is insane given the original trilogy is $30 on Blu.

They gave me $22 for LOTR EE DVDs which is a lot more than Amazon's $8.

I also traded in a CD for $0.25 which was fine. It was like new because it was a gift that I didn't care for.

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.
Top Ten Movies I Want to See on Blu-Ray (that aren't already coming): 10. Real Genius 9. Waking Ned Devine 8. Pee Wee's Big Adventure 7. The Muppet Movie 6. Murder on the Orient Express 5. Team America 4. Steel Magnolias 3. Victor/Victoria 2. Little Shop of Horrors 1. Hedwig & the Angry Inch

Did a few searches on that buybak site. My DVDs are worthless. Most I can get is probably $9 for my Stick It DVD, but I love that movie and it's not on blu yet so I'm keeping it.

I had a lot of success on Craigslist selling my DVD's it is better than a yard sale because you can reach people who don't go looking for yard sales. Pawn shops are a rip off they never give you what they are worth and the more you are selling them the less they will give you per title.

Ebay is the easiest but their fees got to be rediculous on top of the paypal fees too. I would to try craigslist but just tried selling an iphone 4 and got hammerd with people trying to f*** me. Not to mention you have to think about the craigslist killer right.

I just give them to family and friends who don't use Blu-ray. The feeling of giving far outweighs the $3 - $5 I can get for them.

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.

I have used those means :

Participate in a yard sale once a year

Leverage your Facebook friends and coworkers to promote your titles, have a list ready to handle to interested people

Make use of the occasionnal "Get a 7$ credit for your old DVD when purchasing a BD" promos, Best buy and HMV had those promos a few time in the past

Bring the unsellable V.V.S. turds to the local pawnshop

Children/familly titles are selling well but DVDs generally are losing value by the months. Don't expect to get 10$ for them, unload them FAST while you can!

Just in case you are not able to sell your DVD's. Why don't you donate them to your local Goodwill instead? That is what I do when I have DVD's that my family and friends don't want. And, Goodwill will give you a receipt that you can use as a tax write-off. I have been doing this for several years now.

I also have a Salvation Army store but I have never donated to them before. If you ever plan on donating to Goodwill just ask for a receipt if they forget to provide you with one. I donate on average about 3-4 times a year and it is not only DVD's. I also give VHS tapes, new/used clothes, books, toys, music CD's and misc. household goods. These donations are tax deductible (amount varies by state). Just don't expect to be able to deduct a whole lot on your taxes but it is better than nothing. Helping Goodwill provides jobs and services for people with challenges. I hope this helps in your decision.

Dummies as in pirated? If so, you won't be able to sell burn copies of movies to a legitimate business establishment at all because they're illegal. No merchant will accept them! Originals DVDs has depreciated significantly in resell value, so you may not get very much. But something is better than nothing! If nobody in your family is interested ( I don't see why not) you can donate them to the Salvation Army, Goodwill, or your local Library.
