Yes patiently waiting for the 20% sale to start. I have over $1600 in credit at Dvd Planet and over 60 Blu-rays in my Wishlist.

Holy crap, that's sweet. I've got about $250 once the shipment that just arrived yesterday gets credited. The 20% off sale gets me about 2 extra Blu-Ray disks, so that's always a welcome treat.

I seem to be getting an error right before the last screen. Is this happening to anyone else?

Few questions on trading in to DVDPlanet:

Is it store credit only?

How strict are they compared to say secondspin.com in terms of case/dvd quality? Nothing I have is messed up beyond belief but I'm just curious.

Thanks!

Is the error your getting a login error ? As i am unable to login to my account all weekend. I get stupid error screen after i enter my password.

get this:

An error happened while processing your request.


BTW dvdplanet your new site design is terrible with those added buttons. How about a redesign where you need it in the search feature. BLU-ray you have to sit clicking through all the pages to find something at times.

Yeah, i was getting that error, and I got one saying there was a problem with the database too. I'm trying to log on right now and get an error.

And I agree that DVDPlanet really needs to work on their site.

I seem to remember these website problems happening before the last 20% off sale started. Pretty sure that's when they came out with the new site design too.

Ohh thats right the annual 20% off sale starts sometime this month right ? That would be perfect timing for me. The last few times i did not have anything to order during the sale.

Ok thanks, it is always easier to take when you know it is not just yourself experiencing the problem.

Am I missing something, restrictions or something? This can't be right.
Using their quote machine, I'm getting some great quotes on stuff like the Big Lots titles. We got them for $3, and the quotes are $5 or more. Other places, like SecondSpin, only give $.50-$2.00 for those tites. Same thing with the Family Dollar "mystery DVD" titles.

My first time trying to sell to them, so I just wanna make sure this site is on the up and up.

EDIT: not that it matters right now, since when I go to checkout/create an account it hits an error and can't proceed.

Yes, they are pretty generous with their rates. I haven't had a disk less than $3.00 and second spin was about 50 cents. Most of my $5 Wal-Mart bin dvds are around $3-4 on trade in with DVD Planet. Pretty sweet. Still waiting for my last credit from this past Thursday to show up.

I finally got my Quote and sent the DVDs off. If everything goes well I should be getting about $120 of credit. This is pretty awesome.

That's what I did. I sent in 19 DVDs, the box weighed 6 pounds, and it cost $5. with delivery confirmation. I just hope that it gets to DVDPlanet and processes in time for the 20% off sale.

I received my credit today.. They received my package 10/27, so it was a 1-Week turnaround, which is pretty darn good.

System shows I have no credit. I have over 200pts so I know I have $5 I never used. My account shows the points but shows no credit. What's going on over there?

Well their 20% sale is coming soon since they just starting raising their prices. I was just in my wishlist and clicked on a few items and most of them are already $2 more expensive. Iron Man BD went from $27 to $29 as an example.

I've yet to earn enough points to redeem for credit on an order, but according to their website you have to apply the points/credit at checkout. I don't think it will automatically become a credit to your account.
