Used CD's on Amazon.

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by line6man, Oct 1, 2008.

  1. Does anyone here ever buy used CD's from Amazon?

    i just bought 9 CD's and one DVD from Amazon, and i bought the cheapest used ones that were available.
    (a couple of them came down to it being just a tad more for a "like new" copy rather than an acceptable version, so i did that instead)

    i am still a bit worried about buying used CD's online...
    i dont mind the condition of the CD, because i just copy everything to my harddrive and cell phone, and then the actual CD gets put away to collect dust.
    but i am concerned if the disc is scratched up or unplayable...
    but i guess that if i got a scratched CD, i could just return it for a refund.

    any thoughts?

    Sure, I've bought used CD's online lots of times. Just make sure the seller has a good reputation (better than 98% positive feedback, and a lot of feedbacks) and has a decent return policy. No problem. Worst case scenario is you're out the cost of mailing the CD back to them.

    I have bought lots and lots of used CDs on Amazon.com, never had a problem. I've gotten a lot of good ones for around $1 or $2. The shipping costs more than the CD!

    Here's a tip: try to get multiple CDs from the same seller in the same order, then you can save shipping costs.
  6. wow, i got 3 of my cd's and the dvd in the mail today (just 3 days after placing my order)
    they all look good, no scratches.

    now that i know they ship out so quickly, i guess maybe this is the best way to buy my cd's

    also, for some reason, the post office didnt stamp any of the stamps on the packages, so i am just going to peel them off and reuse them.:D

    i have like 12 of them.
  7. yeah...
    i got an SRV album for $1.95

    i ordered a couple of VHS movies once for a penny each:D
    but i paid $3 to ship them:bawl:
