Ah, summer. Pool parties, margaritas, barbeques, and all the great reasons to get out in the sun. After making it through a tough year all around, it’s time to relax and let off some steam.
Getting ready for summer means making sure you have all the right gear you need, but trying to find the brands you want at prices you want to pay can be tough. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to find all the best stuff for summer without having to spend a pile of cash.
While brand new gear can be expensive, refurbished items are often just as high quality, but are generally much cheaper. There’s a common misconception that refurbished items aren’t as good as the original factory items, but that’s not the case anymore.
The ability to buy things online has completely changed how we shop for things but it also means we don’t really get to try things out before we purchase them. That means that it’s quite common for someone to purchase something online, only to receive and realize that they wanted a different color or maybe a different model of the product.
Sometimes they don’t even open it, or if they do, it’s just long enough for them to decide to return it. These products are still just as functional as the original item that came from the factory, it’s literally just been shipped to someone who didn’t want it.
This is where online stores get the vast majority of their refurbished items. They are products that have been returned after basically just being opened, but they are still professionally inspected and cleaned to make sure they are 100% functional, then resealed and relisted for sale. Since companies no longer have to deal with international shipping and customs and middlemen, they can resell them at a significant discount.
eBay has a huge selection of Certified Refurbished products that lets you rest easy knowing that you’ll get a great deal on the stuff you want without having to compromise on quality. Each one of these products has been certified to work by the original manufacturer or their authorized partner, they are professionally cleaned and inspected, and include all the official manuals and accessories.
These products also come with the same hassle-free 30-day returns like everything else on eBay. If what you received isn’t what you expected, eBay will help you return easily. They also have eBay’s Money Back Guarantee that makes sure you get what you really paid for or you get your money back. And every seller goes through a stringent verification process to make sure you’re only buying from legitimate people and businesses.
eBay also has some of the best Certified Refurbished brands and products that you can’t find anywhere else. Certified Refurbished products from some premium brands like Samsung, Bose, Arlo, and more you can only find on eBay. Oh, and there’s quite a few things that qualify for free shipping so you’re not stuck paying crazy prices to get your stuff.
So essentially, buying all your favorite gadgets and gear, from electronics, to appliances, to power tools, is just like buying them brand new from the store, except you’re paying up to 50% less.
