The instructions were easy to follow. My iPad was locked and I was sent instructions to unlock, and musicMagpie responded quickly. Overall, very satisfied.

Review by Chris

Reduced offer to £77 saying phone would not charge. I have never had that problem, so emailed them asking for them to double check. Reply i got was a cut-and-paste job effectively taking several paragraphs to say 'no.' Asked for it back, plugged it in as soon as it arrived; lo and behold, it charges! Emailed MusicMagpie again sending them photo proof of it charging asking if I can continue with the original offer. Nope, they want me to put in a new request even though the price has dropped

MusicMagpie - How it works

Using the site is easy, simply follow these instructions;

1. Enter your bar code:

This can be done in a variety of ways:

  • Key in the items bar code
  • Scan using your Webcam (Yer, really you can!)
  • Use the iPhone App to scan straight off the phone!

Make sure you use the real bar codes not the stickers from the shops you bought the products from, the real bar code will be part of the packaging.

2. Postage:

  • Use the courier service, it's free and fully insured if you are selling in bulk of over 50 items. This way the package will be collected from you and delivered to them!
  • Use the free-post labels they offer to send you in the post, pack your gadgets in a cardboard box and attach the label. Then simply post it!
3. Payment:

When they have received your old games and CDs, they'll send you the cheque in the mail and you just cash that bad boy in! Simple.

Music Magpie Review

Music Magpie is one of the original and leading recyclers of CD's, DVD's and games! So if you're looking to turn these gadgets into cash you are in the right place. After starting out with just a great CD and DVD trade-in site idea, years later they're recycling other gadgets like smartphones and tablets too - advertising on TV, with over 5,000 visitors per day. They've also racked up over 20,000 positive customer review.

Music Magpie uses an independent review website called 'Feefo' to manage all of its feedback. This is quite similar to other recycling/cashback giants like Mazuma who like to broadcast the success of their website and happiness of their customers! From looking at the review site, you'll find that the scores are all extremely high - you'll find a small percentage of people who use Music Magpie and feel that their old tech is worth more, or that they took too long to pay, but 96 percent of the reviews are positive, so it's clear they offer a great service!

We know that it's common for people to want more cash for their old gadgets, it happens across the trade-in market. People get a quote online for a 'used' price, ship off a load of games, CDs, smartphones or DVDs which is great. But if they arrive at places like Music Magpie and the company finds half the stuff is broken or scratched or beyond economical repair, quotes get lowered and people aren't always happy.

There is a simple solution though - if the games, CDs and DVDs or other electronics you're selling are in a state then be prepared to get haggled down on price. Music Magpie will always strive to get you a fair price.
