There are many different venues to sell your unwanted used CDs, either for trade-in value or straight cash. These sales can be done online or in any number of retail stores.

Websites Specializing in Buying Used CDs

Sites like SecondSpin.com and CashforCDs.com buy used CDs for a range of prices from 10 cents to £3 for a common CD and more for rare CDs or box sets.

Retail Stores

Retail stores will also often buy used CDs to resell. FYE usually pays between 60p to £2 per CD. Local stores, such as Bullmoose Music will give more for store credit, allowing the seller to obtain discounted new media.

Online Auctions

eBay and Craigslist are great resources to sell used CDs, especially in bulk to reduce organising hassle and shipping costs. Rare albums may fetch much higher prices on these sites than in retail stores.

Legal Cautions

Once you sell an album, however, it is no longer yours and should not still be in your possession in another form, like on your computer or on a copied CD.


Selling used CDs benefits everyone involved as it makes money for the seller as well as the stores you sell them to. It also allows artists to gain more exposure through a second owner.
