Music Magpie Review

I'll admit, I had never heard of Music Magpie before I was approached to write a review, but after doing a little searching, I thought it sounded like a really neat service so I agreed to share it with my readers.   Basically if you have any unwanted CD's, DVD's and video games that you want to sell, you can mail them to Music Magpie (for free) and they will send you cash in exchange.  Pretty cool, huh?

I haven't actually used this service myself, but i'm in the process of doing some major decluttering and reorganizing this summer and we have tons and tons (and tons) of CD's and DVD's that we don't use anymore. I honestly can't even remember the last time we watched a DVD in our collection or listened to an actual CD.  Unfortunately they are sitting on shelves collecting dust and taking up space.  Sad, but true.

Pictured below is just one of our many stashes of our old CD's.  
The rest are stuffed into boxes, but we have no place to put them. 
These are shoved into a small corner in the office. The younger boys
mess with them and mix them up. I really need to get them out of here. 
I know you're probably wondering how complicated this process is, but after looking at their website I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are only three short steps.  That's it!

Here is a brief rundown of the process (please refer to Music Magpie for more details and instructions as this is just an overview):

Step one: Simply enter the barcode from the DVD, CD or video game that you want to sell.  You can type in the number or scan it using a webcam.  You must enter a minimum of 10 items.

Step two: Ship your items by packing your items into a box and attaching a free label.  Yes, you read that correctly...there is no cost to ship your items to Music Magpie! You can choose between UPS or United States Postal Service. I wont go into all the details as it's all stated on their website, but the instructions on their website are clearly stated and very easy to follow.  I get confused easily but I was able to follow the directions without any confusion.  There is a limit of 200 items per box.

Step three: Once your items have been received by the Quality Assessment process, you will receive a check.  There are some requirements, such as you must include the original artwork, covers and booklets and the case should be in good working order.

There is also an iPhone and Android app if you prefer to use your phone.

If you want to declutter your home and get some cash for unwanted CD's, DVD's, and video games then you should check out Music Magpie.  Again, I don't have any personal experience with this company, as i've never actually used their services, but I thought it was a neat idea and i'm definitely considering using this company in the future.
