Our Stores: Buy, Sell, Trade

Due to COVID-19, we are not acquiring collections at the moment. We look forward to buying collections when our stores reopen.

Bring us your CDs, LPs, DVDs, 45s, books, 78s, 12”s or video games! At Amoeba Music, you can trade in your old stuff and get cash or 30% more in a credit slip that you can use to shop with whenever you want. Our expert buyers can appraise all categories of music. Bring in any amount or combination of genres or formats and we’ll explain how much everything is worth, and pay you the right price.
