Apple products are fantastic, but it only takes a few minutes in the Apple Store to see just how much damage can be done to your bank account. Their products are always continuing to improve, but that also means that their prices have to reflect these improvements.
One of Apple’s biggest criticisms is that it’s overpriced. It isn’t hard to find a PC that has similar specs but costs less. Still, there’s something to be said about the quality of the products and the experience of using a Mac or iPad that just can’t be beaten.

So, do you want an Apple product but can’t quite justify shelling out that much money?
Good news: you don’t have to. Enter the refurbished market.
When you buy a certified refurbished Apple product, you’re going to be saving money, guaranteed. For example, you could find a 32GB iPad Mini 2 for only $269 – that’s $230 less than the retail price of $499.
Better yet, if you were to hold up that refurbished 32GB iPad Mini 2 with the full-price retail one, you wouldn’t even be able to tell the difference.

iPads aren’t the only way to get a great deal on refurbished Apple products. You can save $1000 by buying a refurbished MacBook Pro as opposed to a retail one.
So, what’s the catch?
Nothing, really. When you buy a refurbished Apple product, it has gone through a rigorous refurbishment process that contains many tests. Any defective parts of the product are replaced so you end up with a completely functional product. The operating system is restored so it is ready for you, and the product is fully cleaned. Then final quality checks are completed to ensure that your product is in pristine condition.
One thing to consider when buying refurbished, is that product availability changes constantly, and it is rather unpredictable. This means that there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to find a refurbished version of exactly what you’re looking for, like you would be able to at the store.
