Topic title should say How much should I sell these DVDs for, not What should I sell these DVDs for.

According to our rules as stated here:

It is up to you to figure that out and tell us.

Ok. I moved this thread to the Exchange Forum since it looked like you intended to sell here. But since you don't, the main forum is the place for this.

I'll second what hindolio said. Just look at recently closed listings for the same DVDs at eBay.

You're probably going to get significantly less for them without the cases, that's for sure.

I wouldn't buy caseless/coverless DVDs for 25 cents each. In fact, if I did buy them, I'd pay very little, and sell them in my garage sale for 50 cents each, MAYBE. You'll be very lucky to get that for them anywhere, OP.

I was thinking about $1 per title.

Truly, no cases, no sale. These are garage sale fodder. With the cases, I would have actually considered buying those Survivor and Amazing Race seasons.

Re: What should I sell these DVDs for?

Without cases I'd try a Bulk lot sale and put them all on at once. I suspect you might get as much as $15 to $20. Sorry.

Most people will shy away from the sale because usually without the cases means they were stolen (razor to cut the sticker, then popped from the case). Bulk lot of CDs without cases usually means they were in a binder and stolen out of a car.

I'm not accusing you of anything, just explaining why a lot of people won't want to buy something that looks stolen from a website that tracks its buyers and sellers.

Honestly, try a garage sale.

Re: What should I sell these DVDs for?

Check half.com you can see what they are selling for. I doubt many are worth the cost to ship them. A bulk sale on eBay will probably net 25 per disc.

Re: What should I sell these DVDs for?

Break them up into lots on eBay or craigslist:

Reality TV
Comedy TV
Drama TV

Wrestling

Movies (these may not bring much)

Make sure you mention that you combine shipping, just a few people who are interested in more than one lot can bid more than they normally would because they'll 'save' on shipping costs. Buy paper DVD sleeves in bulk from Staples/Office Depot and take pictures of them in the new sleeves. That'll look better than all of them in a binder.

Re: What should I sell these DVDs for?

I got a bunch of random stuff without cases for free, obviously not wanting to own them I put em up on Ebay and got basically $1 each for about 40 titles. I thought I was very lucky to even get that much. Best of luck with your sale.

I'd say the trash or give them to a local library. I'll give you $5 for the 70s Show discs and Poison Ivy 1-3, though.

Without cases, they are worthless to me. Almost. As I said above, I'd put 'em in my garage sale for 5o cents each...but I doubt I'd pay 25 cents each for them (more likely a dime per).

Yeah, $1. The disc itself is what everyone is after right? Who cares about a case?
