We found a secret Amazon section for like-new tech deals: Apple, Beats, Samsung — up to 70% off
We all know that Amazon is bursting with deals on brand-new products. But did you know that a world of even more ridonculous bargains awaits you at Amazon Renewed? What, pray tell, is Amazon Renewed? It's a little-known Amazon section where you can find refurbished electronics and home appliances at up to 60% off retail. We'll give you a minute to take that in.
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:
TM Wired USB Full-Size Keyboard
"It's cheap and works great. I don't know how but I tend to wear out the letter labels on keyboards. I even wear out the little bumps in the F and J index keys till they are flat, so a good working inexpensive keyboard is a good thing," said one user.
Onn Dual Dash Cam
"That camera is actually a good camera overall, I have nothing bad to say about it. It's a plug-and-play camera and the controls are easy to operate and toggle. I love the screen-in-screen design for the interior camera the wide view and also the night vision is pretty clear as well. Awesome camera," said one reviewer.
Edifier W830BT Bluetooth Headphones
Apple AirPods Pro (1st Gen)
"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. I bought myself a pair a year or two ago and I have not gone a week without them since. Loved them so much that I bought my sister a pair for Christmas."
Samsung 43-Inch The Frame TV
"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."
Oculus Meta Quest 2 (128 GB)
"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; is truly an amazing experience."
Apple iPad (10.2-Inch, Wi-Fi, 32GB)
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 wifi off it barely uses any power. Three days I haven’t charged it and still at 88%. My old iPad turned off in 6hrs 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."
Dell Latitude 7490 Laptop
"Best laptop I've owned," one customer said. "16GB RAM and a solid i7 for $300-400? This thing handles everything I’ve thrown at it so far. It’s not a gaming laptop if you’re looking for that, but I’ve done some decently tasking things, such as making music with Reaper (with a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and midi inputs) along with some programming and software engineering things. This computer is absolutely worth the buy. I would easily buy another one."
Roborock S7 Robot Vacuum and Mop
"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."
Vizio 43-Inch V-Series 4K UHD LED TV
"Great quality," said a five-star fan. "This TV is like having a jumbo smartphone — great!"
Cuisinart Air Fryer
"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.
Dell 11.6-inch Convertible 2-in-1 Touchscreen Chromebook
"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."
Apple Watch Series 6
"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!"
Beats Studio3 Wireless Headphones
"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."
Apple iPad Air 2, 64 GB
"Looks perfect and works like new. Very pleased!" said a five-star fan.
