Music Magpie is one of the original and leading recyclers of CD's, DVD's and Games! People looking to turn their old Cds and DVDs into cash and trade in games are in the right place. We though the idea was great when we first heard of it, years later they're advertising on TV, have over 5,000 visitors per day and racked up 20,000 positive customer reviews in 2010.
MusicMagpie uses an independent review website called 'Feefo' to manage all it's feedback. This is quite similar to other recycling/cashback giants like Mazuma who like to broadcast the success of the website and happiness of the customers! From looking at the review site, you'll find that the scores are all extremely good, however, their seems to be a small percentage (4%) of people who use Music Magpie who feel that the Cds DVDs and Games that they send them are worth more, or that they took too long to pay.
In a nutshell, this is common across all gadget recycling, people get a quote online for a 'used' price, ship off a load of games/CDs/phones/dvds and when they arrive at places like Music Magpie, the company finds half the stuff is broken or scratched or beyond economical repair. This is why quotes get lowered and people get moody because of it, but that is a small percentage (4% according to the review site Feefo).
If the games, CDs and DVDs your selling are in a state then be prepared to get haggled down on price, you wouldn't sell them as new on eBay or at a car boot sale so don't be surprised
