My last two phones have been refurbished iPhones, and I can attest to the money you can save when you choose an older model. For my latest phone, I went with a model that was two generations old: That saved me more than $500.
But there are some things you definitely need to know about shopping for refurbished phones to get the most bang for your buck.
What to Look Out for When You Buy a Refurbished Phone
Buy only from reputable online sellers with the highest ratings.
Make sure your refurbished phone comes with a warranty.
When your phone arrives, immediately test it to make sure it has all the functionalities you paid for.
Buying a refurbished phone can save you a lot of money. It’s true that you may not always find the exact color or specs you want, but the cheap price may make it worth it.
