"like new" "put in a cd folder"

You talked him down from $70 to $40

Enjoy your stolen DVDs.

Yeah, a CD folder is much lighter for shipping compared to DVD cases. Stolen.

What does it matter what we think of what you brought or where you brought it? This thread serves little purpose other than your bragging you talked a guy down in price for his stolen DVDs.

Why did I click on this thread anyway? I hate reading threads in which people can't use proper spelling/grammar and in addition - this thread serves no purpose at all!

It seems to be some kind of spam, but I can't figure out what the OP is selling.

Hmm, what do I think about your find?

Well I think your name exemplifies what I think of your purchase. Oh, and I don't mean I think the deal was James.

If you think this is a steal, then you don't ebay much. Not a bad deal, but hardly a steal.

Sounds like someone was cleaning out their 'shitty movies I'll never watch again' pile. I think you paid $39.00 too much.

Re: Brought 70 Dvds Today

It depends on what you got for $39.90 (+$20) and what condition they're in. Of the DVDs you listed in your initial post I didn't see any of them I would actually like to own ~or~ watch. If you like all the movies you got and they're in in like new condition, then you got a deal at roughly 86 each. I wouldn't have bought them for several reasons: They don't come in their original cases, DVDs in albums/folders usually mean scuffs from sliding in/out of the sleeves, there probably would have been 5 (if that) out of the 70 that I actually wanted and/or didn't already have, and for all you know they could've been stolen (guess that doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things unless you have a conscience). But to each their own, if you actually wanted all the DVDs you bought and it doesn't matter to you they're in sleeves/could be ex-rentals/could be stolen (you only have his word they're not), then good deal! -kd5-
