Buying and Selling Beatles CDs, Beatles Records and DVDs

We buy and sell Beatles CDs, records and DVDs, as well as more movies and music. Founded in 1980, Princeton Record Exchange is a large independent movie and music store located in historic, downtown Princeton, New Jersey, about one hour from New York City and Philadelphia, easily accessible by car, train and bus. Princeton Record Exchange buys thousands of music and movie collections. We are always looking to expand our large selection of Beatles music and other types of DVDs, CDs, LPs, and games.

Browse through over 60,000 CDs, 60,000 LPs and 10,000 DVDs, including many Beatles music CDs, DVDs and Records, at our New Jersey store. We do not currently list our inventory or sell online because our selection changes daily.

How to sell your Beatles music!

We are always trying to add to our inventory of used CDs, LPs, and DVDs. We are happy to offer you a free appraisal for your merchandise.

We buy online and in our Princeton, NJ store.

Listed below are some of the Beatles artists and labels we are looking for.

As with everything we buy, there are three ways to get an appraisal for your merchandise:

  1. Call us at 609-924-3472 to discuss your collection with an appraiser, or
  2. Bring your collection to our Princeton, NJ store, or
  3. Describe your collection online at our Sell Your CDs, Sell Your Records, or Sell Your DVDs questionnaire pages.

For large collections we recommend that you give us a call before listing all your items or visiting us-we might be able to save you a lot of time!

Selling your Beatles CDs

When you Sell CDs to us, we pay up to $3 for strong selling full-length CDs in excellent condition (more for certain rarities). However, there are many titles that we may only offer 10 cents to 50 cents for; due to oversupply, lesser demand and/or poorer condition quality. There are some titles that we cannot use at all. Prices are subject to change over time. There are some titles that we are not able to buy at all.

To get top-dollar, the CDs must be in excellent shape; no scratches on the discs, cracks in the cases, or rips in the liner notes.
