Best Buy to sell refurbished iPhones for less

By | Published on Wednesday 7 January 2009

US retailer Best Buy is selling second hand iPhones for fifty dollars cheaper than brand new phones. They’re not really second hand – they are phones that were returned to retailer within 30 days of original purchase.

Best Buy will ‘refurbish’ the phone and sell it at the cheaper price point. Such cheaper refurbished phones have only previously been available via the website of Apple’s US mobile partner AT&T.

It’s not clear if any similar arrangement may be made in the UK, where Best Buy have a stake in iPhone seller Carphone Warehouse.
