Make Money Through Cex and 99p Stores or Poundland

£0.99CeX Deals

Found 18th Sep 2012
99p stores and poundland both sell 1 metre HDMI cables for 99p and £1 respectively (funnily enough). Cex will buy them from you for £1.50 cash or £2 in-store credit. I just bought 6 cables from a 99p store for £5.94 (that's all they had on the rail at the time) and got £12 in-store credit for them, which I bought a game with, theoretically paying half the price I should of done for it. I could of also taken the £9 cash and made just over £3 profit (free lunch, right?). Not an amazing amount of money made but could be handy if anyone was looking to buy something in-store and wanted to save a bit of money.

For people asking if all stores will take them due to quantity, I asked the girl behind the counter and she said they have an endless supply of people asking for HDMI cables and need the stock to cater for them anyway so was happy to take them.

Thanks, gonna go buy 1000 now. CEX won't know what hit them..
heat added but 99% of cex wont take a large bundle without knocking down the trade price. Good for £5 of free credit
I am now 51p richer, whoo hooo! Thanks OP!
Not bad idea if summet instore you already want say for 8 quid
If you can find a store that will take 60/70 of them at £2 each thats a 360 or ps3 paid for
I think the rule of thumb for them is more than 9 of one item counts as bulk buying, so you might get less.

... or 2 million.
In Hounslow High street, London poundland and 99 p store is next to each other and CEX is opposite to these stores
Nice one, good work! I have quite a few spare cables knocking about at home so will give this a go.

You can make more if you rebadge the cheaper HDMI cables with 'Currys' on them and sell them for £15 each at the car booty. £15 is still 700% cheaper than you'd find them in PC World/Currys.
Terrible deal. This is an example of taking something cheap, and making it more expensive, therefore putting it out of reach for those who are already having a hard time.

Awful, and no doubt I will get flamed for my comments. This kind of thing makes me sad... great if you have spare cables lying around, though!

Or you could just go rob a bank instead? oO
sorry i don't know anybody who would be stupid enough to buy a hdmi cable for £15 especially from a car-boot sale. do a special breed of people go to car boots sales?

As a side note, the more people that trade in. the cheaper the cash price becomes.

Also, rocking up with 50 of these will probably backfire and end up getting you a couple of quid and 45 HDMI cables to shift :P
(Most CEX can only buy FIVE of the same thing at once off you)

Correct, also both will net you jail time, so may as well go for the bank option!

I bought 3 high speed ones for £40. The guy gave me a fiver off for buying 3. But I found out they won't work with my VHS player. Thankfully, I have now traded them in at Cex and got a second hand PS2 game in trade.

I dont see that happening, unless all stock in 99p stores and £land are shifted to CEX.......by which time they'll have soo many to shift they'll be (figuratively speaking) giving them away anyway.

These 99p/£1 places must buy in huge stocks of these items.
you know what would be funny if someone from cex is reading this and they changed the prices 49/98p tomorrow for cash and trade in

I'd have kept this to myself if I were you. It won't last after posting it on here and if you've discovered a little trick to make a few quid out of HDMI cables (just like any high street store tries to) then good luck to you.
very true timmyUK cex will soon release and change the price, should of kept it to yourself OP.
Can you do it with any HDMI cable even the unpackaged ones like from this link?

You really think this is going to last??
Can't understand why CEX don't bulk buy a load of HDMI cables rather than buy these @ over the odds.Should have kept quiet OP some greedy bo11ox will ruin for you now.

Gayest money making scheme ever.
It would be far easier to go get the box sets from sainsburys price blitz at £5-6 a go and trade them in for £8-12
If you get land before time box set for £5 that's worth £14 cash
Bones series 6 is £6 trade in cash £11 etc etc
