United Kingdom Cex

Anyone know if what they offer for movies in-store is the same as online?

Thinking of sending some old DVDs there but the value on the website is so low I might as well throw them away.

To my knowledge the price given online is the same as in the shop, but don't throw dvds away.. that's just wasteful. Give them to a charity shop if you really don't want to sell them for a low price.

Thanks for the replies guys.

And specifically to this, I was exaggerating but in reality they aren't worth anything anymore so it's not really that far from the truth.

If you're registered with CEX (have a membership card) you get a bit more for them, it doesn't raise the price too much but ever so slightly. Also its better to get store credit than cash. But I feel your pain, when trying to upgrade from dvd to bluray its hard trying to get something for your dvds.

I dunno, I got rid of around 400dvds on ebay for buttons, then found cex and wish i'd gone there with them. If you have a store local its not bad, go in check the stock and condition etc i've picked up about 12 blu's from them altogether using dvd trades, old pc games and a bunch of sh*te cd's my father in law tried to palm off on me. I even took an old contract phone with a wrecked antenna and got £45 cash.

So when you say they aint worth 'anything' anymore, you may aswell try get something you want for them even if it does seem like your paying £100 for one blu

That's not right, everybody who trades anything in has to have a membership card, which you get by having proof of id.
I've traded in hundreds of DVDs over the last 2 or so years and never got more than the price on their website.

I'll likely be placing a lot less orders at CeX online, as I noticed today that delivery is now on a per item basis, £1.50 del per item vs £2.50 del for 10 items.



Quote:
How much does delivery cost?
Items on an order where the unit price is less than £50.00 will incur an item delivery charge of £1.50.
Items on the order where the unit price is more than £50.00 will not incur an item delivery charge.
With the Amazon marketplace still charging £1.26 delivery, CeX have basically went from my primary source of cheap used blu-rays, to simply a fish in the pond.

Agreed - but watch out for the marketplace as am starting to see UK-based sellers increasing from the old £1.26 standard there! Maybe it is to offset where they reduce prices linked to other sellers? Example with Music Magpie on Marketplace is Book of Life 3D, yet they are still £1.26 on The Force Awakens where Revival Books have the increased price!

Looks like it's going to be getting much more confusing for buyers

EDIT: just spotted you can currently get Cooties new for 4p less than CEX thanks to this - which is a sentence that *really* doesn't work with that pronunciation revelation too

Yep was about to place an order of about 8 movies this weekend and was appalled.

Not going to bother with them anymore. Amazon, ebay, music magpie for me from now on.

Just comes across as very anti consumer. I used to buy 15 - 20 from them a month. Not anymore.

It's undoubtedly shit, but the other side of the coin, is that it's now a quid less for single items.

I will always pronounce it see-e-x. If you've visited one of their stores, sex is the last thing on customers minds. Usually it's, "how quick can I get home to shower and wash my clothes?"

Fabreze could make some decent money with a trade-in store edition.

I managed to offload a couple of titles for a decent amount of store credit from them. I feel kinda guilty in a way, but being on the receiving end of dodgy imported titles, remakes sent instead of originals and cases missing the discs from their webstore, they kind of deserve it if their staff are daft enough to fall for it. Sold them the Commando DC with the old disc inside for £5 and Heat remaster with the old WB disc inside also for £5. (the correct disc put into the steelbooks)

I kinda feel sorry for whoever bought them, expecting the DC or remaster and getting old discs. Maybe that's just me.

Especially as you have to post 'em back to get replacements if you buy on-line. I had a load of rotten HD DVDs and they wanted me to buy new envelopes (as we recycle as soon as they hit the mat) and post them back, some were only 50p. It was cheaper to re-order and hope I'd get working discs (the Warner Bros. discs are prone to going bad).

Anyway I wouldn't make a habit of swapping discs.

That's pretty low. Two wrongs don't make it right.👎

I saw a copy of Shogun Assassin in the nearest CEX to me, and thought I'd grab it for the unique extras next to my Criterion edition. Was the only person in line for about five minutes while about seven people were behind the tills and just getting on with other things. Eventually one guy said to me "the queue starts at the other end, just a heads up mate."

Oh ok, so even though I'm stood right in front of you and no one else is in line, you'll serve me if I walk thirty feet to the other end of the barrier, then back again? Not condemning all stores but literally 85% of my experiences in CEX have been utterly abysmal. I just left.
