Why Buy Refurbished or Open Box?
- Price – If you could buy a luxury car at the same price as a regular car, wouldn’t you do it? The same goes for computers & electronics. You can get a faster machine, bigger screen, more features, etc. all for a lower price when you consider buying refurbished.
- Value – Consider this… just like when you buy a new car, the moment you drive it off the lot, the value drops. This is very similar when buying a computer, TV, camera, etc. So when you buy open box or refurbished you can just pocket the money you just saved, or use it to buy that accessory that you couldn’t afford had you bought brand new. Now that’s smart savings!
- Be Kind to The Environment – Everyone wants to help the environment right? When you buy refurbished; instead of hitting the landfill, they get a second life.
- Already Been Tested – Usually an item’s first real test is when you buy it and take it home. If there is a problem, you are the one who gets to discover it and deal with it. So refurbished means your item has been given an extra dose of personalized expert service, removing problems and bringing it back to manufacturer standards before you buy it.
