PASADENA, Calif. --, the Web's first destination for cash-free exchange of digital entertainment products (CDs, DVDs and video games), today announced a unique way for consumers to shop for the holidays without spending a dime -- or unload some of those duplicate or "unwanted" gifts afterwards. At, consumers have the ability to trade-in their used or unwanted CDs, DVDs and video games for instant online credit towards the purchase of new and used like products, eliminating the need for cash. offers consumers a type of "recycling program," providing users instant online credit toward the purchase of something they want and relieving them of items they don't want! Visitors can also just purchase new or used products since Spun has a much larger, more diverse and well categorized library of titles than the average new or used retail store. With billions of dollars worth of CDs, DVDs, and games collecting dust on consumers' shelves, is the ideal place for them to trade in their unwanted items.

"Tastes change and people loose interest in some of their old CDs, DVDs and games," said Andy Grundy, president and co-founder of "We offer a very unique way for consumers to do their holiday shopping without spending any cash because we have created a way for consumers to exchange their old product, receive credit and use that virtual credit to purchase other new and used digital entertainment -- for friends and family or simply for themselves."

How it Works:

Visit and search or browse for favorite items. In the same shopping cart, consumers can load up all of the items they would like to trade in and/or buy. Instantly, they will be given credit for the items traded in and will then be directed to checkout. Once the transaction is completed, ships the consumer's ordered product in a box large enough to return the items they are trading in, and Spun includes a pre-paid mailing label and tape to facilitate the transaction. The whole process can be completed without even leaving the home.

The Spun Advantage/Key Features:

--Buy and sell in one order

--Real-time price quotes for trade-ins

--Spun's consumer-driven pricing system keeps track of what Spun has in stock -- and adjusts Spun's buy and sell prices accordingly
