Stacks of Games Sitting Around Collecting Dust?


As Gamers, we know the second hand market very well. Every Game Stop, Best Buy, Toys R Us, and now even Target sell used games. What if you could get more for your games, CD’s, DVD’s, Blu-Rays, and never have to leave the comfort of your home? Music Magpie has the solution. is a quick and easy solution to getting rid of stack of unwanted media. Music Magpie recycles your unwanted media instead of turning it around and selling it to the guy behind you at a store. With the media they received and recycled last year they could stretch it from Mississippi to Alaska. Don’t think that just because they recycle your media instead of reselling it that you would get less. I did a comparison with Amazon, since Game Stop normally rips you off, to see how Music Magpie’s trade in value stacked up, here is the list of items I had by my computer I decided to try:


Halo 4 Original Sound Track – CD

Amazon – $0

Music Magpie – $1.56


Wipeout 2048 – PS Vita

Amazon – $2.50

Music Magpie – $5.43


Fire Emblem: Awakening – 3DS

Amazon – $22.00

Music Magpie – $19.98


Cowboy Bebop: The Movie – Blu-Ray

Amazon – $3.45

Music Magpie – $1.99


Ico/Shadow of the Colossus Collection – PS3

Amazon – $4.00

Music Magpie – $7.74


Tomb Raider – Xbox 360

Amazon – $15.75

Music Magpie – $28.00



Amazon – $47.70

Music Magpie – $64.70


If you sold your unwanted stuff to Music Magpie, you could have easily paid off Bioshock: Infinite and never left your house. Music Magpie ships all this from you to them for free, just like Amazon does. You can either use UPS or the Postal Service to have your goods sent to Music Magpie. Once they receive your discarded media they will send you a check, not  a gift card, for the amount. Best of all your unwanted media is turned into other products and help reduce the damage to the planet.

You can check out Music Magpie for all the details and check to see what your stuff if worth with their easy value estimator. If you have an Android or iPhone you can also check out their free app, which will let you scan barcodes to make your recycling even easier.

Have your say
