We want to buy your music and movies!

Princeton Record Exchange has been buying thousands of music and movie collections since 1980. We buy private collections, estate collections, reviewer/radio station surplus, and entire store inventories of CDs, DVDs, LPs, video games, and other audio and video formats; No collection is too large! As an active member in the Better Business Bureau, we are committed to treating our customers professionally with prompt payment for collections.

To find out what we can pay for your DVDs, CDs, LPs and other 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 DVDs, or Sell Your Records questionnaire pages.

Please Note: We would love to evaluate your collection, and will give you a free appraisal, but be aware that there are many titles that we cannot use due to lack of demand, overstock, or condition quality.

Selling your 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.

We buy Rock, Jazz, Classical, Alternative, Metal, Techno and just about every other genre of music.

To see a listing of the genres of CDs that we buy, with representative lists of desirable artists, see our CD list of genres/artists/labels page.

If you would like to get an appraisal or sell your CDs online, see our sell CDs questionnaire. 

Selling your DVDs

We pay up to $3 per disc for most feature-length movies ( more for some deluxe issues such as Criterion Collection editions). As with CDs, when selling DVDs, the discs, liner notes and cases must be in excellent condition to get full price.

We are interested in all genres including adventure, thriller, horror, sci-fi, drama, Disney, foreign and much more.

To see a listing of the genres of DVDs we buy, with some sample lists of desirable titles, see our DVD list of genres/movies page.

If you would like to get an appraisal or sell your DVDs online, see our sell DVDs questionnaire.

Selling your LPs

We typically pay from 50 cents to $2.00 for strong-selling LPs. Please Note: while many LPs are of great interest to us, the vast majority of those in today's market have little to no monetary value. The fastest and easiest way of determining the general value of your collection is to call us.

We are always looking for sought-after titles, and there are some rarities that fetch $10.00 to $100.00 or more. On the other hand, there are some LPs that we can not use at all because they are scratched, weak-sellers, or we have too many of them. LPs that are scratched, scuffed, or moldy will get only a fraction of our top prices. We base our offer on supply and demand, conditions of vinyl and cover, as well as other market conditions.

We buy Rock, Jazz, Alternative, Soul, Funk and many other genres of music.

To see a listing of the genres of CDs that we buy, with representative lists of desirable artists, see our LP list of genres/artists/labels page.

Sorry, we do not buy or sell 78s.

There are too many details relating to the LP market to list on this page. For more specific info, please see our selling LPs info page, or call us at 609-924-3472 to discuss your collection.

While we buy many CD and DVD collections through the mail, most LP collections that we buy come from customers that live within 2-3 hours from Princeton, NJ. You are welcome to fill out our sell records questionnaire or call us to discuss your collection, but please be aware that most records do not have a high enough value to make shipping worth while. It is generally best to bring them to our Princeton, NJ store, but we do recommend that you speak with one of our appraisers first, or see LP genres of interest to us and LPs we have little interest in to make sure we don't waste your time.

Selling your Video Games

We are always looking to enhance our Collection of video games. We pay up to $4.00 per game for many Xbox, Playstation 2, Gamecube and Gameboy games. We are only interested in games from current platforms.

If you would like to get an appraisal or sell your video games online, see our sell Video Games questionnaire.

Selling your Laser Disc collection

We still pay 25 to 50 cents each for many Laser Discs. We are uncertain how long we will continue to buy Laser Discs due to the expanding market for DVDs and CDs. Because of their relatively low value, we will only buy these at our store; sorry, no mail collections.

Selling your SACD (Super Audio CD), DVD Audio (DVD-A), and other audio formats

We are very interested in increasing our selection of emerging formats, such as SACD and DVD Audio. We pay up to $4 per disc depending on the title and our existing inventory.

Please do not send any merchandise before calling, or receiving response from our online questionnaire. We do not accept nor will be held responsible for unauthorized merchandise.
