Trade CDs for an iPod

Post by Undisclosed » Sat Dec 31, 2005 12:13 am

Well its one in the morning and im searching around the net. I go to lifehacker.com and find this It sounded neat so I checked it out. You give this place cds or dvds and they have to past a quality check for physical condition and popularity. But I could go to good will, thrift store, salvation army or something. At my walmart they have those 1$ dvds. The thing doesnt says that even unpopular dvds count as 1 cd.
I dont know check it out

Bookmarked for further research.
Do you need cases? With cases shipping could be a female of the dog species, without it'd be nothing to shake a stick at.

Edit, you need cases and inserts and crap, this could be more trouble than its worth...

Ya but i could get 1 dollar dvds (175 dollars there) then i'd have to add shipping. But even if it was like 200 to 220 dollars...its cheaper than a 60gb ipod. Then i would turn around and sell that ipod.

yeah i wonder how much it would cost to ship that many cds. I guess if it's under the price of the ipod it's worth it...

Yeah, but would they really take those excrement DVDs? I mean, everybody loves old Bela Lugosi films and obscure cartoons (I actually have several of the latter), but those DVDs in their crappy casing surely wouldnt pass the test.

BUT! There are two drop-off locations, so if you live close, you can spend $0 on shipping!
Shhh! I'm not officially back yet.
