Is it time for a new Apple device? Maybe you have the oldest iPhone or iPad, and it’s just not working for you anymore. Your first thought might be, “I’ll go to the Apple store,” but you could soon realize that a brand new device would cost you a small fortune. So how can you get a new device at a lower cost? Is that even possible? You'll be happy to hear that it is!
Apple has an awesome program where they refurbish used devices, and then resell them for a fraction of the cost. Yes, it’s a used device, but considering Apple’s high standards, the devices go through a strict refurbishment process before they put them up for sale.
Any and all defective parts of a device are replaced by certified Apple parts. By the time the devices are certified, they are like new. Apple even promises the same one-year warranty that you would get on any new device, and you can purchase Apple Care if you wish to extend that warranty.
On the flip side, if you’re the person that still has your very first iPod sitting around collecting dust and you just don’t know what to do with it, you can actually get an Apple credit for giving it back to Apple for refurbishment. If your old device doesn’t qualify for refurbishment, they will recycle it for you. You might have a cracked screen or a broken camera, but that doesn’t matter.

Whether you are looking to purchase a like-new refurbished device or get rid of an old one, Apple's Special Deals site will provide answers to all your questions.
Apple posts all the refurbished devices on there for you to browse, but they do go fast. Once Apple has received a full payment for a refurbished item, they will reserve the product for you. If you are looking to recycle your old device and can’t bring it into an Apple store, they will send you a prepaid mailing label for you to ship it directly to them.
This great site can get you some incredible deals like $100 off an iPhone 6s, or $20 off a 4th generation Apple TV, and if it breaks within the first year you are ensured the one-year warranty.
