Looking to sell 4K Brand New sealed DVDS

I recently purchased over 4K brand new original factory sealed Dvd's all of them are in there original BVHE (buena vista home entertainment) boxes. Titles include Grey's anatomy , Lost, ugly betty, Greek, Scrubs, Night stalker, lots of disney kids titles. etc. Places like "sellyourdvdsonline" Magpie, and Amazon etc pay nothing for more than 2 titles. Ebay is an option but most of the buyers want the titles very cheap so they can sell to the big company's themselves.(which is understandable). The problem is I'm a single Mom and my house is in foreclosure and I'm trying to sell them for a much as I can to save my home. I would GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY advice or names of larger company's that would purchase a freight load of them from me??? I DO have a business license and Tax id number if that helps. I would NOT be competiton to other people in the business selling to large company's because this is a ONE time deal for me. If any one can offer any advice or give me a name of a large company that purchases in bulk I would be so grateful!! Thanks so much in advance for your time!!

Me thinks this is a Disney/ABC employee who snuck a crate out of the office.

Give me your banking information, routing and account number. I'll see about wiring you money to buy your whole stash.

Yeah, let's call in the authorities on this one... Smells rank from thousands of miles away! Employee 'shrinkage'? No way, she claims!

Sounds like a scam to me as she might be doing something illegal here and I bet the Disney folks are just thrilled at seeing or reading about this...NOT!!

It is probably remaindered stuff. Disney has been remaindering some of those titles.

Either a yard sale or a flea market is probably your best bet.

Take them into any Best Buy and trade them for a 5.00 coupon for each. 20,000.00, easy money.

I am not well versed in these type of deals, but you would likely want to contact the buyers at retail chains that often handle clearance merchandise, such as Big Lots, Dollar Tree, Dollar General, etc.

If time is no object, you might cherrypick the discs with the most resale value over a certain price threshold and sell them yourself, while dumping the rest in a clearance lot to some of those companies I mentioned.

I'll buy them for $16 million, but you need to pay the transfer fee of $50,000. I'll message you the instructions.

Yours,

I want to ship the DVDs, none of them have cases, I don't wish to buy cases for each of them. How should I ship them/present them to the mail person? Just bring the DVDs in a bag and tell them to handle it? Thanks.

I'll trade the bridges I own in trade for your disks. Each bridge costs 1,000 disks. They are The International Bridge, The Mackinac Bridge, The Blue Water Bridge and the Ambassador Bridge. Sell me all 4,000 and I'll toss in a fifth bridge, the Zilwaukee Bridge for FREE! :

My house is NOT foreclosed i'm behind 2 payments and I purchased them way before my husband decided to physically abuse me. I'm trying to make a honest living not living on welfare or looking for handouts. I'm glad you find enjoyment in other people's pain. I Legitimately purchased them from a non profit thrift store that a company donated to them at a very reasonable price. They have permission from the company to sell them. Not everyone in this world is a scam artist I was just looking for some advice from kind people. I knew it was a mistake to post my question. I never thought I would get such hurtful, hateful remarks! I have it hard enough raising a son with autism alone without your words of wisdom. Not that you care but I cried for hours after reading these comments. My wish for you is that people don't judge you the way you judged me. Best wishes to you.

If you post a pic of the DVDs with a shoe on top of them, then I will consider not calling this topic suspect.
