Do people still buy CD albums?

And if so, what's the going rate for them in used (excellent) condition?

Reason I ask, I'm considering buying a very large CD collection from somebody - 95% of which I will want to keep -but the rest I'd want to sell on, probably on here, to cover some of my cost...a lot of the stuff I'd want to sell is club/dance as I'm not really into that...

Dont think they're even worth selling. Used ones sell for very little on ebay.
maybe £1.50-£2 an album-if that...very hard to shift so wouldnt bank on selling some in order to "cover your costs" of luck anyway...
Yeh, could try for like £2 on here, but at boot sales etc theyre usually 50p-£1 ebay-nothing.
I wouldn't expect a lot for them...but a little would help, just seems pointless spending a good couple of hours listing and photographing them if they won't sell.

As a general gauge, when selling DVD's I aim to clear at least £1 after postage costs to make it worth while. Do you think CD's would struggle to make this?

EDIT: From the posts above, it seems they may sell for just enough to be worth trying! :)

You can get most oldish albums for a couple of quid brand new now anyway. Amazing how the cost has dropped on them over the years.
I have NOW 43 if you want....
Also have the best of celine dion if anyone interested.
If you are trying to get rid of some try this

Haven't tried them myself but heard they are quite good.
can get most for 1.50-2 quid delivered as long as not mega new
I would look for some 2nd hand cd shops and try and sell them a bunk lot!
Thanks for all of the feedback. :)

Still weighing my options, but leaning towards going for it - as even if I only do sell 5% of them at £2 each, that would give me back a quarter of the total price. I wouldn't need to sell any really, but would be a shame to have potentially a hundred or 2 CD's sat in boxes doing nothing just because I don't like them - and even getting just a few quid back would make my deal on the others so much sweeter! :-D
Any rock, metal, punk or ska?
Ive not paid for a Cd album in years, i download em all for free!!!!!!
Ive still got all my cd singles (ive got about 300), I only recently lobbed all the cases in the bin but ive saved the covers and discs obviously.

Maybe try selling them as a job lot or something. Its faster to sell and saves you time.
i still buy them for in the car, if you list some on here add a link to this question and ill have a look :)
