Now there's an alternative that allows you to free yourself from those round pieces of polycarbonate and make some money while you're at it. Decluttr will buy all of your CDs, DVDs, and even video games and even pay for the shipping.
You might wonder why a company would do this and how they can stay in business. It turns out that there actually is a market for some CDs that people feel are collectors items. In order to get the ones that are precious to some, Decluttr is willing to buy a load of crap in order to get to the good stuff. It will take everything, because it feels if it turns you down on anything, you might not want to keep trying.
The company will pay a minimum of $0.50 per disc, but may pay as much as $5.00 for a gem like Green Day's Insomniac, Judy Collin's Living, Neil Young & Crazy Horse's Weld or Steeleye Span's Now We Are Six.
What's more, the company plans on expanding past media into clothing and watches. It's sort of like an online flea market, where you can find some diamonds along with some junk that might feel like a diamond to you.
To sell your CDs, go to the Decluttr website and enter the barcode of the disc and you'll see what the company is willing to pay. There's also a free iPhone app that lets you scan the bar codes directly. I'm opening up my CD closet right now.
