Extra 20% credit on trade-ins @ !

As usual, from my email:

Quote:
Didn't get what you wanted for the Holidays? No worries! Spun will pay you 20% more to sell it to us! Simply enter promo code 20more upon checkout to receive 20% more credit! Limited time offer ends 01/15/08.
Didn't think they'd be doing another promo like this so soon! I'll be trading in some goodies for sure!

Enjoy!

has no used titles that I want to buy

I'd like to clear out my DVD collection of titles that just take up space and I'll never watch. Is a place like this the best solution when considering prices, shipping charges, or ease of selling?

Wow, that's so true. I just punched in a title that I've been considering trading in... is offering $5.30 (MSRP $50!?!), while secondspin.com offers $12.50.

I have done this before. Spun received my games that were in perfect condition, but they decided that they were not in good condition and took away my credit and kept the games. It is in their policy to keep anything that is ruled bad quality. How much do you want to bet they sold the games I sent in? They then charged my credit card for the balance of the DVD I bought. Beware... Just seems shady having a policy like this.

I read their policy, TruBuffyFan, and didn't see anything like that. What I did see was:

'Any trade-ins that are refused for any reason can be returned to you upon request and at your expense for 30 days.'

I agree that the policy kind of stinks, but they're not ripping anyone off.

That does kind of scare me even though I keep my DVDs in pristine condition. Seems too easy for them to change their mind whether they want to give you money.

I have a lot of DVDs to sell, so I'm trying to figure out my best bet

This was some time ago when this occurred so it may have changed. But now you have to pay for it... Thats a pain. I do remember not being aware that I owed them money and my games were not accepted for a long while. It was definitely more than 30 days after the sell occurred.

Thanks for this! Their DVD buy back prices are too low but for CD's w/20% they have the highest on the net. Thanks!

I've had a few items canceled on me in the past. On one order, they did that with 4 of my cds for no good reason as far I as could tell. It was only a few dollars lost, but on top of that, the act of canceling those cds ended up disqualifying me from the free shipping.

I complained to them and they ended up crediting my spun account for the amount of the cds and the shipping. Not as good as refunding my credit card, but I was able to use the credit later on.

You guys are better off trading them instore at a Transworld owned store. Theyre doing a bonus 45%, and it goes off of Wherehouse/Secondspin's prices, so you'll be getting a lot more.
