If you want an iPhone, there’s a little-known way to get your next device at a discounted rate -- and you can find it right on Apple’s website.
Secret way to save on Apple products
Apple is now selling refurbished iPhones through a page on its website that Forbes describes as a “quiet secret.” The refurbished section has offered Mac desktop and notebook computers, iPads and iPods for some time. The iPhones are the latest offering.
According to Apple’s website, there are multiple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models for sale. They are 15% off the regular price. So a refurbished iPhone 6s with 16GB sells for $449, compared to the regular price of $529 – an $80 savings.
If you’re worried about buying something that’s been previously used, don’t be. Apple offers a one-year warranty, plus free shipping and returns. All devices go through a rigorous refurbishment process and meet Apple's standards.
So if you really want an iPhone but can live without the latest model, it may be worth your time to browse the refurbished section on Apple’s website.
