Mobile Phones [Refurbished] – Starting at $399! (Devices to Suit your budget and needs)
With so many different mobile phone choices from Apple, Google and Samsung, and many newer brands coming out with their own flagship devices, choosing a phone has become increasingly more challenging. But not to worry, we’re here to help!
With the almost all the main brands releasing new phones with incremental updates each year, it makes less sense to invest in the latest and greatest phone of the moment, when you could opt for a device that’s just as good for sometimes less than half the price of a brand-new mobile phone.
While refurbished devices used to mean devices that were pre-owned, but had been sent back for repair and resale, this isn’t always the case, as some networks and retailers even classify phones returned by customers who change their mind during the 30-day return period as ‘refurbished phones’.
All refurbished phones undergo rigorous testing for battery charge, the responsiveness of the screen, audio and video quality, as well as connectivity over Wi-Fi and 3G/4G and the cameras to ensure the product is in the best condition. Often, they are preloaded with the latest firmware updates, that makes them even better than they were on original release.
We have a large variety of phones, from brands like Samsung and Apple which are factory refurbished and are guaranteed to work and perform as well as their newer counterparts and are affordably priced.
Tablets [Refurbished] – Starting at $499! (Powerful computers and laptop alternatives)
If you’re like us and don’t like the idea of carrying a backpack full of bulky textbooks, a tablet is a great and versatile alternative. Whether you’re researching articles for school, referring to textbooks or even just flipping through your favourite magazines or comic books, tablets make reading a pleasurable experience. With a large selection of free as well as reasonably priced apps for work and productivity, it’s an excellent alternative for someone who needs the power of a laptop in a more compact design!
We have a large selection of tablets from brands like Samsung and Apple with different capacities and sizes to fit your needs!
Laptops and MacBooks [Refurbished] – Starting at $1099!
While being one of the pricier items on our guide, a PC or a MacBook is a great investment that holds its value and lasts for years. We have a great selection of both Windows and Mac laptops.
On the Windows side, we have brands like Lenovo, Asus, HP, Microsoft Surface Books etc.
On the Mac ecosystem, we have MacBook Pros at different configurations and capacities. With a great and comfortable keyboard and a good selection of legacy ports on these devices, you’ll be free of the dongle life!

All our MacBook Pros come pre-installed with the latest version of Mac OS, Mojave.
