They're good but no way are they gonna beat Amazon Used prices! At least I don't think so from what I've seen. Amazon Used is a gift from heaven!

So yeah, I'd be saving on shipping, but whatever I'd be saving on shipping I'd be spending anyway because the albums would be going for $5, $7, instead of 50 cents, $1, $2.

That's true. I hadn't thought of that because one of the shops I used to go to had a blowout rack that I could get amazing deals out of. Another thing you could consider is Half.com, because if you buy multiple albums from the same seller, you save on shipping.

Albums that are in low demand are usually really cheap on both sites and secondspin.com puts things on sale or has discount coupon codes all the time.

Only buy proper copies if you think that the album is good or important to you. Waste of money otherwise. Second-hand purchasing is always a cheap and mostly reliable option as well.

The artists not getting any more money thing is a non-issue IMO. Somebody paid for that disc, and the artists have received the money they deserve.

Anyway, if I loved a record enough, I would certainly buy it for cheap just to have a physical copy lying around.
