Just ask Robert Gaylor, who had a mountain of DVDs gathering dust in his attic, but couldn’t motivate himself to do anything about it.

“[I] had boxes and boxes... and I kept putting off just tossing them out,” he says.

But then Robert’s wife told him about Decluttr, a free service that pays top dollar for your old tech and physical media — all without charging you a cent for shipping.

“It sounded too good to be true,” Robert says. “But guess what? It is true!”

How to sell on Decluttr

Decluttr pays up to 33% more than other buyback programs and makes selling your old stuff online quick and easy.

If you’ve got an unwanted piece of tech lying around — a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, for example — just type in the make, model and condition on the Decluttr website and you’ll get a quote instantly.

For people like Robert looking to sell physical media like DVDs, CDs, video games, and books, the process is even easier.

“I just have to use [the] free app to scan the DVDs, pack them in a box, stick on the free shipping label... and drop it off at the UPS store,” Robert says. “Inside of a week there’s money magically appearing in my PayPal account.”

That can sometimes mean $4 or more per DVD or Blu-ray, and if you have a box of 50 with similar values, that means $200 just for shipping your dusty collection.

As soon as Decluttr receives your stuff, you’ll be paid via direct deposit or PayPal the following day. It’s that easy.
