Selling your CDs & DVDs:

When you Sell CDs to us, we pay up to $3 for strong selling full-length CDs in excellent condition (more for certain rarities).

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 & DVDs must be in excellent shape; no scratches on the discs, cracks in the cases, or rips in the liner notes.
