Experiences selling back DVDs...

Been lurking around these boards for over a year now and finally decided to register. Hello!

What do you think the best method of selling back DVDs is outside of Ebay or Amazon Marketplace? I have gone the in-store route at places like The Exchange but I am selling back about 80 movies and want to get the most bang for my buck. I have been bouncing around to online sites like MX123 and they seem to have some good prices.

What do you all recommend? I know amazon and ebay are technically the place where I could sell them the most for, but between in-store versus online buy back places, is there a considerable difference? I know the price that the online places quote me and I think it's worth taking the really cheaper DVDs to an instore place since they can't really offer any less and, perhaps, because their inventory is much smaller, they might offer more. It's the items like the complete Rambo Set or a TV show season that I wonder about...

If you're not in a huge rush to sell them I've had the most luck with Amazon market place, easy to use, very passive and I've gotten a good amount of money for things.

Re: Experiences selling back DVDs...

You maybe already be familiar with it, since it's sort of merged with Ebay, but I occasionally sell some stuff through Half.com with ease. I think it works similarly to Amazon marketplace.

"but between in-store versus online buy back places, is there a considerable difference?"

Depends on the store. The local record store chain Zia Records consistently gets me a good trade-in price for my used DVDs and CDs, but I've never gotten more than peanuts at FYE/Wherehouse.

And, of course, it depends on the relative availability of the DVDs you're selling.
