Ready? Okay, here's how it works. 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, take a chill pill: Every item is backed by the Amazon Renewed Guarantee, which promises a replacement or refund within 90 days if it doesn't work to your satisfaction.

As for the fine print: Products will arrive in excellent working order, tested and thoroughly cleaned by professional technicians. Some may not ship in their original packaging, but they'll come complete with needed accessories. And 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:

If you have an old TV and want to make it easier to stream, just plug in the Fire TV Stick Lite. 

$25 at Amazon

"Easy to use. Good condition. Great price. Now my TV is slightly smarter," one succinct user said.

Whether you need to know the time, the weather, or you just want to see the title of the currently playing song, the Echo Dot with Clock can do it all — and more. 

$40 at Amazon

"Easy to use, easy to set up, looks great," said one homeowner. "Luckily I already had the blue wire ran through my house. If it's not already there, I would just get the battery for it."

If you want a smart thermostat in your home but you don't want to drop several hundred dollars to get one, this refurbished option from Amazon is a great pick. At just $40, it can help cut back on energy usage and keep your home comfortable in a heat wave. 

$70 at Amazon

Said a thrilled shopper: "This has made my home feel like The Jetsons! Step into the Space Age!!!"

High resolution streaming and fast in-app response make this one of the best video doorbells on the market. 

$90 at Amazon

"This is battery powered but there is an available accessory to be able to power it from an outlet, which is sold separately. This is another great piece of equipment from Ring. Very happy with mine," one user said.

Striking the perfect balance between functionality and size, the Echo Show 8 is an absolute steal at this price. 

$70 at Amazon

One buyer raved, "I love this Echo Show. One of the best purchases I have ever made. I love Alexa and all the other features that come with it. Don't hesitate to make this purchase, you'll be glad you did."

This dash cam provides 4K resolution and a 150-degree field of view.

$60 at Amazon

One reviewer said, "This is such an easy device to use. Literally plug n play."

These AirPod Pros work like new, thanks to Amazon's guarantee.

$147 at Amazon

"Indispensable," said one user. "I use these for at least an hour a day. At work, I typically have them in for a few hours at a time and I pop them in their case to charge when I'm away from my desk. The case holds multiple charges for the AirPods themselves. I use them at the gym and sweat has caused me no issues. The tips pop off and on easily enough to clean them from time to time."

Few TVs have built up a cult following like the Frame, which can display artwork and photos when your TV is "off." While they're not cheap, you can snag this model for less than $750 — a new one would run you nearly $1,000!

$737 at Amazon

"I love this TV," shared a satisfied shopper. "It is beautiful. I don’t watch much TV, so the idea of it being a visually appealing item sold me. I don’t really know what is 'refurbished' about it, as there haven’t been any issues."

This massively popular VR headset gives you seriously impressive immersive entertainment, whether you're gaming or watching a "live" concert. Brand-new versions cost upwards of $400.

$269 at Amazon

"Words can’t explain how amazing this is," raved a five-star fan. "You are in a whole different world as soon as you put this headset on. It’s truly a really great experience. It’s fast, it’s up-to-date and it has cool features already downloaded on it. You must get it for your family; it's truly an amazing experience."

A long battery life and fantastic resolution will have you glued to this device all day long.

$189 at Amazon

One shopper said, "I bought this in acceptable condition, just taking a chance. Well, I am quite happy. Didn’t want to spend the full money for a new iPad.... If I leave the Wi-Fi off it barely uses any power. Three days I haven’t charged it and still at 88%. My old iPad turned off in six hours, no matter how many settings I changed. If anything changes I’ll update, but it came in great shape physically and I’m not noticing any internal issues."

This mopping robot vacuum isn't messing around, with sonic mapping over multiple levels and a strong 2,500 PA suction. Control all the action from your phone.

$350 at Amazon

"Love, love, love my RRS7," said a fan. "I run it about every other day. We have two dogs and four adults in the house. Sometimes five if the college student is home! The mop has three intensity levels, the vacuum has four levels including quiet. The app allows for rooms to be named and separated so you can do one at a time or two or more at a time or the whole first or second floor. Allows for multiple floor mapping. Hallways, laundry room, bathrooms, etc."

A brand-new Vizio TV of this size would run you about $350! Enjoy Dolby Vision HDR, along with instant access to all your favorite streaming apps and services. There's even a voice-controlled remote.

$204 at Amazon

"Great quality," said a five-star fan. "This TV is like having a jumbo smartphone — great!"

This brawny multitasker has a 17-liter capacity that can roast up to three pounds of chicken wings or toast six bagel halves. Choose from functions like AirFry, Bake, Broil, Pizza, Roast, Toast and more.

$130 at Amazon

"It's excellent," said a happy customer. "What needs to be crunchy is air-fried, and it toasts bread really nice. I love having the basket, the tray and the grid all together. It's just me and my husband, so we don't have to use the oven for many things. It's also very sturdy."

Brand new Dell Chromebooks cost about $440 — this one's a fraction of the cost! Enjoy a touchscreen and convertible 11.6-inch display, along with Intel HD graphics for a sharp look.

$109 at Amazon

"This was billed as used, but it appears to be new," reported one five-star reviewer. "I've only had it for a few days but, so far, I am very pleased with it."

The latest Apple Watch will soak you for about $400. Track your workouts, sleep, heart rhythm, blood oxygen and more with this handy (wrist-y?) device, along with sending texts and taking calls.

$230 at Amazon

"Looks brand new!" writes an elated shopper, who picked up a renewed Apple Watch in Space Gray. "Watch looks and performs just as well as a new one. Honestly, I don't know 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!"

A brand-new pair of Beats Studio 3 headphones goes for $350. Save over $120 with this sleek pair, which features adaptive noise cancelling and up to 40 hours of runtime with one charge. Soft ear cups also make for next-level comfort.

$229 at Amazon

"Battery lasts forever, even in used condition," said a happy listener. "Fully charged it on the day I bought it, and the battery lasted throughout the entire week when I used it for a few hours per day."

This little robovac can vacuum, mop, and even clean itself when it's finished. Best of all? It's almost $400 off its normal price.

$650 at Amazon

"I am so happy with this robot! I’ve had several brands and models (Shark and Roomba) and this is by far the best of them. The mapping is unbeatable, the robot is very oriented and covers every reachable area...I have a fluffy husky that sheds a lot and drops water when drinking it so I run the robot twice daily. I program it while I'm sleeping and in the afternoon I choose which rooms need to be clean again and my apartment (800sqft) is always spotless," one user raved.

So, unless you just enjoy paying more, save with Amazon Renewed. You'll find products in 12 major categories:
