Buy Refurbished iPhone & iPad for Kids #BuySmarter
How many of those do you have laying around your house? My kids are breaking or losing their smartphones and tablets all the time! To the point I now refuse to buy them a ‘new’ iPhone or iPad! That image above is my oldest son’s phone. There is no way I would spend big money on a new phone when he didn’t take care of the first one I bought him. I have learned quickly to buy my kids refurbished electronics.
Nearly 70% of parents reported that a child in their household has broken or lost at least one smartphone, according to a Gazelle survey. With everyone being virtually connected in some fashion, it is hard not to buy them something. Even my son’s school starts providing tablets in Kindergarten! Laptops starting in second grade! So, I do need to start purchasing items to help my children keep up with technology.
Of course this is what happened to my middle son’s tablet….
This presents a problem for parents who may not be able to keep up with the costs (and replacements). New smartphones start at a steep cost, $649, and most carriers no longer subsidize the cost. I have found a website to buy a certified pre-owned device for kids without killing my bank account. My kids do not need ‘latest and greatest’ technology, they just need something that works and I can save as much as 40% off retail value using Gazelle.com.
Gazelle is the smarter way to buy smart devices. Gazelle Certified pre-owned is designed for consumers who simply want a device like an iPhone, iPad or Android at a lower cost than retail value. Gazelle is the only used gadget provider to offer a rigorous 30+-point inspection on all devices and back every transaction with a 30-day money back guarantee.
Here are a few examples of what Gazelle offers…..
iPad Mini 3 – Starting at $289 (price varies)
At less than eight inches on the longest side and a petite 11 ounces, the iPad Mini 3 is extremely portable. There’s no better size for reading eBooks, playing games or working on the go.
iPads – Starting at (price varies)
Gazelle’s iPads are available in three cosmetic conditions – Excellent, Good and Fair – and are offered in all colors and size capacities.
AT&T iPhone 6 – Starting at $469 (price varies)

Samsung Smartphones – Starting at $119 (price varies)

Margo Deetjen says
Gazelle.com Thanks for the review. I don’t have a smartphone yet because they are sooooo expensive and I don’t want to buy it to find I hate it. I’m very impressed with the prices at gazelle and will probably buy from them this week.
Sue M. says
It makes a lot of sense to buy refurbished items; most of them work just as good as the brand new ones, and reputable businesses will always have them inspected to make sure they are in good shape before selling them. Thanks for posting!
I have never heard of Gazelle before. I think this service is not just good for kids, but also for those of us who don’t need the top of the line smartphone or tablet, and want to save some money. I would shop there myself as I love Apple products but find them so costly. Buying an older or refurbished model suits me and my wallet well! 🙂
