In partnership with eBay

Make Sure You're Looking At the Right Phone

Before you look for deal, make sure you’ve found the perfect phone for you. There are hundreds of options on the eBay Refurbished Tech hub meaning you have a plethora of choices to make. We like the look of the iPhone 7 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the LG G5 that you can buy right now – but you should make sure it’s the phone for you by researching and reading some reviews. How about the Sony Xperia XZ? That’s much cheaper on the eBay Refurbished Tech hub than if you were to buy it right away from anywhere else.

Search Around for Better Deals

There are plenty of different deals on the eBay Refurbished Tech hub from a variety of manufacturers and even retailers such as Argos. When you’ve decided what phone you want to buy, be sure to search the Refurbished Tech hub to make sure there’s not a cheaper deal from a different manufacturer or retailers. Some retailers and manufacturers supply different priced deals to the rest of the competition and you want to make sure you have the best priced deal. 

There May Not Be a Box

Be warned, when your phone turns up it may not come in its original box. Refurbished deals usually use tech that has previously had damaged packaging when being shipped or when it has been returned but is unused. If you ever want to buy this as a gift or sell it on at a later date, this may be an issue for you. But if not, you’ll get all new accessories alongside your new phone and it’ll arrive ready to use… plus the next point may sway you into buying your new phone this way.

There’s a 12-Month Warranty

Items bought on eBay’s Refurbished Tech hub offer a 12-month warranty on all devices. Yes, that’s right – if your phone breaks down within the first year of use, you’ll be covered by a warranty supplied by the manufacturer or retailer, and it means you won’t have to worry about your phone suddenly stopping. You can always be certain that your new purchase from the eBay Refurbished Tech hub won’t have any problems, and if it does you will easily be able to get it fixed in no time. 

Don’t Worry – It Has Been Tested

No matter what, you can know your refurbished tech from eBay’s Refurbished Tech hub has been through rigorous testing. Each manufacturer or retailer will make sure the tech is working perfectly, looks as good as new and will be as good for you to use as possible. You can put your mind at ease, knowing that buying refurbished tech offers standard QA control, and it's a definitely a decision you won't regret in the long term.
