If you’re not already buying from Amazon Renewed, the retailer’s marketplace for refurbished electronics, then you’re wasting money. The best Amazon Refurbished deals let you score big-ticket items such as electronics and appliances at a steep markdown. So if you want to save hundreds of dollars on laptops, smart vacuums, power tools and even Amazon products, you’ll want to consider Amazon Refurbished products before paying full price. Unlike other online retailers that sell used items, Amazon puts its refurbished electronics through strict testing to ensure customers don’t end up with a lemon.
Amazon has a couple of different virtual storefronts through which it sells pre-owned items, including Amazon Warehouse and Amazon Renewed. Because the items have been previously owned — and we’re talking everything from books to computers to kitchen appliances — they frequently come with not insignificant discounts. But each of these ways to buy high-quality used stuff on Amazon has slightly different promises and guarantees.

Below, we’ll share the best Amazon Renewed deals available right now, plus some background information on this under-the-radar Amazon program. While some of the best Amazon deals sound too good to be true, being too good to be true is pretty much the Amazon business model.
What Is Amazon Warehouse?
Amazon Warehouse is basically Amazon’s equivalent of a garage sale, if that garage sold things you actually wanted and included Amazon fulfillment, customer service and return rights. For Amazon Warehouse products, that means Amazon tests each item and puts it through a thorough quality check before rating it as Like New, Very Good, Good or Acceptable. Because no further repair or replacement is needed, what you read in the product’s description is what you get — at a very attractive discount.
And because it’s Amazon, if you aren’t happy, your purchase can be returned within 30 days after you’ve received it.
What Is Amazon Renewed?
If Amazon Warehouse is the garage sale, Amazon Renewed is the guy on the block who buys people’s broken-down tech, repairs it to the point of usability and resells it. Amazon Renewed products undergo professional inspection, diagnostic testing and repair to ensure they work like new, if not look entirely new. That being the case, products may have scratches or cosmetic imperfections, but they will work like they’re supposed to, with batteries guaranteed to have at least 80% capacity. Though that seems like it’s a con, it’s the pro that makes solid discounts possible. Plus, sometimes you can get even better deals through Amazon Renewed Coupons, which offer flat or percentage-based discounts on particular Amazon Renewed products.
And that’s basically the skinny on buying used from Amazon. One last thing to be aware of: Because of the nature of used products, they will frequently lack aspects of brand-new items, such as packaging or cables. This is always noted though, so be sure to read the descriptions closely when shopping for anything via Amazon Renewed.
With that caveat out of the way, check out a few great Amazon refurbished deals below. We were shocked by some of the discounts for products we love and that we know you love too.
1. Apple MacBook Air (2015)
We didn’t know it was possible to get an Apple computer for under $500 that wasn’t an absolute crumbling brick. But you can save nearly $55 on the already reduced price of this 2015 MacBook Air, one of the best Amazon Renewed deals available right now. Sure, the battery might not be 100% and there might be some visible dings, but with an Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, an HD screen (not quite 1080 but greater than 720) and a 128-GB solid-state drive, this computer will still boot fast and work hard for you. And if you activate an Amazon Renewed Coupon, you can save an additional $30.

2. Samsung Galaxy A71

4. Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones
Buying renewed on the Sony XM4 headphones doesn’t offer a massive discount — only about $20. But for a like-new version of one of our favorite headphones, any discount is welcome. They’re available in a stylish shade of blue and have excellent noise-canceling and impressive battery life.
5. VIZIO 2.0 Bluetooth Sound Bar Speaker
Vizio’s sound bars are a good deal already, but buying renewed is a steal. And since this isn’t a phone or laptop, the issue of light cosmetic blemishes isn’t as big of a deal, since you won’t be holding it up close to you. It’s Bluetooth enabled, too, so you can use it for music when you’re not watching TV.
