    Good place to buy older CDs?

    Does anyone know of a good website to buy older CDs (new or great-condition used)?

    I looked at ebay and most of the prices for "buy now" are too high. I'd like to buy from a reliable company.

    What have you guys used?

    I highly recommend checking out pawn shops from time to time. I got half my movie and cd collection from those places for super cheap. As mentioned above, half.com is a good one as well and searchable.

    Um, no. You must be buying extremely rare CDs or ones that didn't have a lot of circulation. I've bought probably 200 CDs on amazon over the years, and half of them i got for $3 after shipping in great condition.

    It sounds like you're wanting to buy out of print CD's. If that's the case, the price isn't out of line because you can't get it anywhere else.

    Sure, you got yours for cheap, but maybe he's not as big a fan of Rob and Fab as you are. He may not want 200 copies of The Remix Album.

    You can only have so many copies of Nelly.
    Are there any used CD stores in Des Moines?

    Yeah, because everyone knows products with small supply = lower prices always

    If you've actually used Amazon to purchase CDs before, you'd probably know that most any album can be purchased for under $5 no matter how big the album is. Look up the top 10 albums in the Rolling Stone list, you will find all of them for under $5 used (usually around $2 actually). If you want to "step up" to the remastered version, you'll pay maybe $6 to $8.


    There's more copies of big albums floating around, so they're less expensive. LPs are a different story, but CD wise? You will find most good albums on CD for CHEAP used.




    Anyway, stores where you can buy stuff in real life are almost always better. You'll have the album right away to listen to, no shipping costs, you can see the item's condition instead of relying on a picture and/or text description, etc.

    half.com is better than Amazon for prices, but many of them are still over $10 used. I'll have to watch the sites for bargains.
