When your fancy piece of tech turns into a pricey paperweight at the end of its life, it can feel like an emotional and financial kick to the stomach to replace it. But instead of shelling out thousands of dollars for a brand-new model, you can now turn to Amazon’s Renewed page for like-new refurbished products at a big discount.
Amazon’s Renewed page is a treasure trove of refurbished, pre-owned, and open-box products ranging from pricey computers and home entertainment systems to kitchen blenders and gaming consoles. The program works when Amazon sellers send in products that are seemingly broken. Qualified suppliers do a full diagnostic test and inspect the item to fix what's broken (if possible) and give it a complete cleaning. There is even a guarantee on select products that grants you a full refund or replacement if you return a product within a certain amount of time.
Using this page also guarantees you a better price for the same product. Take the Apple iPhone 11 Pro, for example: A brand-new Space Gray 64GB currently costs $899 on Amazon without the carrier. On the Amazon Renewed page, that same phone fully unlocked is on sale at the moment for $599. And you'll find hundreds of dollars in savings on other high-end items like Vitamix blenders, GoPro Max cameras, and VIZIO 4K Smart TVs.
