Save Money & Discover one of Apple's Best Kept Secrets - The Apple Certified Refurbished Store


I’ve personally bought quite a few Apple products from the Apple refurbished store, including iMacs, iPhones & MacBooks. My current 27″ iMac is a Apple certified refurbished product and I also bought kathy’s 21.5-inch iMac from the refurb store a few years back. I’ve been pleasantly surprised with all the Apple refurbished purchases that I have made in the past. When you receive them, they seem just like new. The only difference might be that they come in a plain white box instead of the normal colorfully printed retail boxes that you see in stores.



Apple’s certified refurbished products all come with the same standard 1-year warranty and 14 day return policy that you get when buying brand new. And what’s cool is that you get all the original accessories that you would have received had you bought new. Many of the devices for sale are slightly older models but once in a while, you will spot a current generation product. Apple’s certified refurbished selection changes fast, so be sure and check back frequently to find what you are looking for. For this reason, we are not going to try and link to specific deals as they would just change too fast. But we are going to break down the different devices and give you an idea of what kind of discounts you should see. Just check out these great deals!
