What a great idea.

Surely the family and friends of a team of 16 players could come up with sufficient unwanted CD's and DVD's to get the kit.

Voted hot and good luck to all who participate.

certainly a great idea for music magpie who will then flog the cds and dvds back to the unsuspecting public for thousands of pounds on play and amazon

I have some cds supplied by Everest / disney world etc - wonder if they'd include them :D

Great deal, but isn't this the wrong time of the year..?

could even pick up a few cds from cex for few quid at a push

they must make a killing on play and amazon doing this

to be fair, i dont think its a great deal, im sure they give 20p as a minimum for cds and 30p for dvds - well from last time i sent some in when i had some absolute tosh lying around, so selling to them normally 500 cds and dvds would get you 100-150 quid depending if their prices have changed, obviously some are worth more than others so you might get up 200 quid for 500 dvds, which youc could just buy some kits for couldnt you?

i read some mixed reviews about the site last week, has anybody on here used them ?

poor deal , you would be better off selling on ebay or taking to CEX/Cash converters , you can get a full team kit under £250

full kit here

am sure someone can find similar for under £200

Even picking up cds at the car boot for 3 a pound it doesn't look good

Exactly. I know someone who has (sorry - HAD) a great collection of Jazz and Classical CDs. He sold pretty much all of them to this place for between (along the lines of) 60p to £2.00. Including stuff, that if he'd bothered checking on Amazon/Playtrade, he could have sold for over £20 a pop.

Even what you'd deem to be 'rubbish' CDs can get a surprisingly good amout. Easily enough to buy football kits for a whole LEAGUE of teams.

If you think about it, its not a very good deal.

Terrible deal.

they have an algorithm, it searches play and amazon for their lowest price then offers you a percentage of that, some really obscure cd i used to have there was one on play for 25 quid and it offered me 4 quid for it, sold it them as it was just a chancer as noone else had listed it - had a look at the closed listings on ebay and a few had gone for 1p and post so i knew they must get their prices from there :D
#17
but how many people have crap old cd's lying about?
#18
I paid £6 for a blu ray (Solomon Kane), played it once as soon as it was released and put it through music magpie and they offered me peanuts.

Avoid.

Could you abuse that then by putting cds up at £25 quid??

These greedy companies are ruining the independant second hand market there used to be some brilliant used music shops round here now there are none.Even on play/amazon zoverstocks cuts everyones throats so the average joe such as you and i cant even sell a simple cd for a couple of pound.I do not use or support any of these companies (cex,zoverstocks etc) quite frankly i wish they would crawl back under the stone they came from.Rant over and vey cold deal as they would be set to rake in a thounsand or 2 from the sales of the stuff.

if you can find one that noone else is selling on play or amazon, then possibly, could inflate the price but even if you put super rare and tried to charge 50 quid for it you would only see 6-7 quid and it depends how often they check for prices

i think cex are ok, they offer a reasonable amount for games (altho peanuts for older ones) musicmagpie literally offer you naff all tho, and when you sell something they undercut you by 1p minutes later, so you cant really sell anything second hand online if overstocks have one in stock because they will undercut you instantly and people just buy from them because there lowest and have massive feedback, hate them

Agree cex are no means the worst but as for the others it becomes a cat and mouse game reducing it by a penny if you want any chance of a sale spoils it for everyone

This is a rubbish deal. I've seen full basic kits for as little as 50 quid before. It's an average of over 30 CDs/DVDs per person.

Do AOL trial CDs from the 90s count?

I had garage loads of them, supposed to deliver them to pc world/b&q stores to refill the displays.
#26
its an awesome deal for a five a side team as we don't want to fork out £30 each for a shirt when we can get a full kit (shirt, shorts socks) for 8 (1 goalie and 7 outfield) for 40 - 50 cds each which is about £15 each if you get the rubbish ones from cex at like 10p to 50p each.

So it's your fault!

Cold from me sorry, trade in 500 albums or DVDs seems too much, you can have good looking kits made cheap with a lot less hassle and a more interesting design

may tell the gaffa about this in training tomorrow :D!

Really?

I'd say it's a far better idea to get someone to collect up the CDs and sell them on to raise money for the team.

They'd raise so much more than way (probably enough to buy Messi)!

Sure - it's a little slower, and involves the hassle of listing / posting - but I've read quite a few reviews online Music Magpie reviews, where people have stated that they had to wait months for their cheques to arrive.

I also find it hard to believe that, out of 500 CDs, they're not going to refuse at least a dozen or so, due to surface marks etc.

Take some effort for such a small amount extra.

The example shown is a Black and White kit - I wonder if they all have Carroll on the back !

If you're in northern ireland Gamestop will take your Cds for 75p store credit. 500 cds = £375.

MusicMagpie are rubbish. Absolute rock bottom prices for everything. Just another in the long line of "send us your stuff and we'll give you peanuts" websites. You could probably get quadruple the amount if you spent a bit of extra time listing your stuff for sale on PlayTrade. Alternatively, if you have a pile of stuff that you want to sell quickly, try listing it for sale on ebay as a job lot. I do that sometimes if I have a load of Xbox or PS3 games to get rid of. Took a load of games to trade in to Game last Xmas and they offered me £17 credit. Sold them all on ebay as one job lot for over £60.
