I saw this advertised on tv today, musicmagpie.co.uk

they take your unwanted dvd's, cd's and games and pay you for them - even send you a freepost label so costs nothing for you to post.

Had a look and they only offer 30p for a dvd!!!

What a rip off! the lady on the advert got a £50 cheque - I knew they wouldn't offer much but I expected more than 30p!

Anyone use these companies??

I see another company doesn't offer much for mobile phones either - I would rather give them to the school who get £5 a phone!

She had a helluva lot of CDs to sell then!!!!

It's the ads that say you can get up to £100 for a mobile phone, what they don't tell you is that to get that you had to pay £300 for your phone in the first place!! My old phone is worth a whopping £2 :lol: Needless to say Jaidyn now uses it as a camera!!!

oh my word - how the heck are these companies allowed to run like that ripping people off!? You get more for a cd etc at a carboot! Think there should be tighter regulation on these companies now, they are popping up everywhere! Argh!

I always wondered about them companies that buy your stuff off you - the gold ones too. do they also offer next to nothing for the goods? I wouldn't go near them.

yeah aparently the gold ones are a right rip off, they hardly pay anything for ur gold & then you have to pay a lot to get ur stuff back to you if you dont accept their offer. think you are better off going to to a local goldsmith to try to sell rather than using these peeps.

I had a look at that music magpie about 2 weeks ago and was shocked that they only offered us 85p :( for a fairly new cd. Instead we put it on ebay and got just over a fiver :D . These companies are such a rip off

i wonder what these companies do once they have the cds etc? Do you think they put them on ebay & get the fiver themselves?! What a profit!
