Sell your CDs, DVDs and Games if you live in the United Kingdom
Do you have unloved CDs, DVDs and Games that are sitting in stacks, bags and boxes around your house? Have you made drink coasters, mobiles and other useless pieces of artwork out of them in an attempt to save them from the landfill? Because you spent your hard earned cold cash for these shiny disks, does it just seem WRONG to toss them into the waste basket and be done with them?
If you have said "yes" to the above, you may be in luck if you can also say "yes" to the following question: "Do you live in the United Kingdom?"
For those of you lucky enough to be living in the land where the Beatles strode across Abbey Road, there is an awesome online service that will pay you Pounds for your disks.
MusicMagpie (not to be confused with the singing group Magpie Music) is a smart, fast-growing company that will buy up your legal disks (no pirated copies here.)
Apparently user friendly, MusicMagpie, will instantly give you a price (in pounds... not dollars), send you a prepaid mailing label and then a cheque (no dollars, so no "checks") upon receipt of your items.
According to their website: "Musicmagpie allows you to convert all your unwanted CDs, DVDs, or Games into cash (UK Trades only at present). For all CDs, DVDs, or Games sold to us, the disk must be in a perfect playing condition and it must have all the original artwork, covers and booklets. The case must be structurally sound although we accept it may have some blemishes incurred during day to day use. "
The company also will buy your used cell phones (or mobiles as they are called in the UK.)
I do like the part that says "UK Trades only at present" because it gives me hope that this brilliant idea will become available here in the United States. Meanwhile, for my readers in the UK, enjoy!
