This means that if you’re lucky enough to find something that you have been wanting, you can now get it at a nice discount.

Plus, buying refurbished makes a tremendous difference in keeping our planet green.


Assured Quality

When it comes to quality control, rest assured that something deemed certified refurbished will be in like new condition. Sometimes products have hiccups from the original manufacturer and although the new product was never used, it could have a small cosmetic damage or have some functionality or component issue that needed attention, such replacing a faulty battery with a new battery. This will make the item certified refurbished once the product passes rigorous testing to ensure the functionality and satisfaction of the consumer. When manufacturers produce goods, they are only required to test a certain percentage of them, which means some of those products may slip through the cracks of inspection, become damaged during transit, or have a faulty or missing components.  These products are returned to be refurbished to a like new status.

Some people may confuse certified refurbished with open box but they are quite different. Certified refurbished means the product was sent back to the manufacturer and refurbished to be as good as new. Open box simply means the box had been either accidently opened during transit or is a customer return. Sometimes these items can even end up in clearance. Although open box has a lower price, it probably has a few blemishes and definitely has not been tested by the manufacturer. Buying a high quality product that went through the refurbishment process is way more worth it than buying an open boxed item.
