Amazon is brimming with deals on brand-new products, but the prices are even better when you delve into the world of Amazon Renewed. What, pray tell, is Amazon Renewed? It's a secret Amazon section where you can find refurbished electronics and home appliances at up to 60 percent off retail. We'll give you a minute to take that in.
You okay? Onward then: Turns out Amazon accepts trade-ins on top products from popular brands, inspects and refurbishes these items, then makes them available — in like-new form — at shockingly low prices.
And for you skeptics out there, there's nothing to worry about: Every product is backed by the Amazon Renewed Guarantee, which promises a replacement or refund within 90 days if the item doesn't work as expected.
You'll be impressed with the caliber of products available at Amazon Renewed, and even more impressed with the prices. How about a like-new pair of Beats Studio Buds for just $71? That's less than half what you'd pay new! Or a 5-in-1 Ninja Foodi for $179. And a Cuisinart food processor for only $69.
As for the fine print: Products will arrive in excellent working order, tested and thoroughly cleaned by professional technicians. Some items may not ship in their original packaging, but they'll come complete with needed accessories. While some items might not be entirely scratch-free, Amazon guarantees "no visible cosmetic imperfections when held at an arm’s length." Meaning, though the items are not new-new, you'll hardly be able to tell the difference — except in terms of the money you're saving.
Here are some of the steals available right now on Amazon Renewed.
Apple Watch 6
"Looks brand new!" writes an elated shopper, who picked up a renewed Apple Watch 6 in Space Gray. "Watch looks and performs just as good as a new one. Honestly, IDK why it’s even called a used one — it was still in its original packaging as if I bought it brand new from an AT&T store. Thank you, guys — much appreciated!"
Beats Studio Buds
If you're in the market for a new pair of earbuds, buying a renewed pair of Studio Buds is a smart way to go: "I have always gone with Beats headphones, since they came out, and I have NEVER owned a pair that disappoints. The Beats Studio Buds are just as expected! Noise cancellation is supreme, cannot hear a single one of my three kids wreaking havoc around the house. [...] Went with the Renewed Amazon purchase and came in brand-new, basically as if I would have bought from the store but for almost half the price. Loved them, always trust Amazon for most of my purchases, Thank you, guys!"
5-in-1 Ninja Foodi
Customers who bought the 5-in-1 Ninja Foodi were also delighted with their purchase: "We love our new Ninja Foodi. Easy to clean. The food is delicious. My husband has fun using it. I can’t think of one item that hasn’t turned out well. Vegetables, potatoes, meat of all kinds."
So, unless you just enjoy paying more, save with Amazon Renewed. You'll find products in 12 major categories:
