Buy and Sell Used CDs & Support our Indie Record Store

When you buy and sell Used CDs from independent record stores, you show support for what many music lovers consider the hub of the music community. Doing so keeps music stores open, helps promote the musicians being bought and sold, and most importantly, gets those CDs off the dusty shelf and into the music-players of fans. And to the fans, that can mean a lot. As LCD Soundsystem's lead singer James Murphy puts it in his interview with Wired Magazine, "The Record Exchange saved my life".

Recycling your music is easy, and when you bring in your collection of unwanted used CDs, it adds up too. Princeton Record Exchange pays up to $3 for in-demand used CDs, so long as they're unscratched and in cases with liner notes.

We can appraise your collection in three ways:

  1. Complete our online questionnaire.
  2. Call 609-924-3472 and asking for one of our friendly appraisers.
  3. Or visit our Princeton, NJ store. (Need help getting here? We have Easy Directions)
    Note: If visiting the store is inconvenient, please call us to value your collection first.

We are an independent record store worth supporting:

First and foremost, Princeton Record Exchange is not a chain. We are a small local business focused primarily on selling used CDs, DVDs and records. We sell new products too, but most people come to browse our collection of 50,000+ used CDs, 10,000+ DVDs, and 60,000+ LPs. We believe in the individualism of our employees and encourage them to play their favorite music in the store. After all, happy employees means better service and happier customers.

Unsurprisingly, our customers have great things to say about our store. Visit our PREX Yelp and PREX MySpace pages to see for yourself. If you want to learn more, we're also a BBB member, and we welcome you to check our standing with them as well.
