In celebration of Earth Day, Amazon Renewed is promoting their line of certified refurbished, pre-owned, and open-box products all week long, from April 16 to April 22. Various items through official suppliers, including Apple and Samsung, are tested and certified to be like new, for a fraction of the cost.
In general, this helps people avoid the gambles of purchasing used products, where the product could be damaged or malfunctioning. Most importantly, it’s a great way to help the environment, as it reduces waste and gives a new life to the stuff people already have.
Amazon Renewed provides peace of mind for customers that need a computer, mobile device, or kitchen appliance, but may not have the budget to purchase a brand new item. While used products can offer great deals, the condition may not be exactly as desired, they usually never come with a warranty, and third-party sellers don’t have to accept returns.
With Amazon Renewed, each product is inspected and ran through a full diagnostic test. There are no imperfections when looking at the object from one foot away. All defective parts are replaced and the item is factory-cleaned to perfection. Every product also has a 90-day limited warranty through Amazon or the qualified vendor.
Buyers can find serious savings on popular buys, like Apple iPhones, Samsung TVs, and Asus laptops. Video game consoles, cameras, audio devices, office products, home and kitchen appliances, outdoor gear, watches, and Amazon’s own devices like the Fire and Echo all feature certified refurbished, pre-owned, and open-box items.
For example, Amazon’s Fire TV with 4k Ultra HD capability and the Alexa Voice Remote is only $44.99 instead of $69.99. An 9.7-inch Apple iPad 2 with 16 gigabytes of storage can be had for $124.95, over a 50 percent savings of the current asking price. $150 can be slashed from the normal price of a Sony 60-inch 4K HD television set.
Amazon Renewed products generally ship in generic boxes and will include all the standard accessories, unless specified. Many of these products have been returned after barely being used by other customers who have either opted not to keep them or are upgrading to a newer product. Now you can benefit with the savings on a high-quality product.
