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 don't have a membership card and can trade in. I'm just not allowed to sell for cash. They just ask for my postcode and house number whenever I trade something in, and make me sign a receipt.

In my experience CeX is only worth it if your DVD, Blu-ray, games, etc. has any value. For instance the orignal Alien DVDs from 2000 are priced at about 10p each, which is really pathetic, even if those DVDs are a bit lame in their own right. So if you were to take in about 10-15 similar DVDs you'd be lucky to get 8 for all of them, which would only be paying for one new Blu-ray at the lowest price.

The only time it's worth taking something in is if it's an older DVD that's a limited edtion version, a box set, a new title or something that's OOP and that's desirable, such as Disney titles. Otherwise don't bother because you'd get next to nothing for them, and as someone said you'd be better off taking them to a charity shop, because at least then you'd be doing something good.

This is the problem with DVDs though because once they're used and aren't a new title anymore their value drops dramatically, because something like Indy 4 is only a couple of year's old, but you'd only get about 1.25 for it if you took it to CeX.

Exchanging does mean you get more money, because you have to use it instore, but a lot of the time it's just not worth it because the condition of the discs can be quite terrible a lot of the time. Once I bought a copy of The Little Mermaid and both discs were so bad it was unbelievable that they were actually sellling it. I had to go back to them and tried to convince them to gve me a refund simply based on the discs being stratched, but they wouldn't listen, so I forced them to test it out and it wouldn't read the discs, and only then would they give me a refund. So don't go down the exchange route unless there's something you know you want when you go in and it looks to be in good condition.

But the one thing I wouldn't worry about too much when taking discs in is the condition of them because all they do is just flip the discs over, glance at it and put it back in the case. So they don't even check them properly and are quite lazy about it, and that's evident in the Little Mermaid DVD I bought.

It's up to you really, but if they don't have any real value then only take them in if you know there's something you could use the money for and if you're defintely not going to watch the DVDs again. But otherwise take them to a charity shop, because CeX can be very hit and miss.

Try Musci Magpie the miniumum they give for a DVD is 30p and you'll be surprised at how much they give for some older titles.. I've just sold 60's worth to them.

Thanks for more replies!

Do you think they'll accept Region 1 DVDs, or any region that is not 2?
The website says no but if they don't check it out...not to mention pratically every player can play any region DVDs now.

Matter of fact, is there any place you can trade in, or sell DVDs that are not region 2?

The ones in Tottenham court road and Rathbone place here in London certainly take R1 DVDs and Blus (there's even a sign outside Rathbone Place saying they do), but, they again only offer a pittance for them.

10p for a DVD? How much do these guys charge for them? We had a shop in Swansea near the Castle and they used to pawn your stuff, you'd get 3 each for a DVD but if you wanted to get it back you'd have to give them a little extra within a time limit, I think 30 days.

I wonder how much they give now?

I notice on their site they have "No DC" for every title that comes with one what does that mean?

If I want to sell them my copy which is sealed, do they not accept it? Do they open it and use it themselves?

If it's the latter, I might as well use it before selling it to them.

I imagine they're covering themselves if indeed the DC has been redeemed. I'd use yours first if it doesn't make a price difference.

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.

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.
