half price books
I went down there today to sell some of my dvd's and the new harry potter book. I was shocked when they offered $16.00 for the book (which I saw on the front counter for $17) and 15 DVD's. The movies were all in great shape and would currently sell well even on ebay. The guy wouldn't give me a straight answer on what they offer for each item so I just took all of it back. What is the deal with them? Anyone know where they get their numbers from? It seems like a scam but maybe I'm wrong. I'm thinking NOT selling to them is a poor skill. Edit: I was being lazy about listing my items up on ebay. I sold them like two DVD's one time and got half of the shelf price. From everything I've read, if you do want to sell to them then small amounts of books/dvds give you better prices. My husband said they are like the pawn shop of books. Knowing that I'll just stick to ebay, amazon, or half.com.
