It can be a common misconception thinking that buying refurbished is synonymous with buying old or unwanted. The reality is, refurbished products have gone through just as thorough, if not more so, of a verification process before going back into the box and on the shelf. Best Buy’s Geek Squad Certified Refurbished products are the perfect way to ball on a budget. The price dropped at an all time low for Black Friday and Cyber Monday and is still on.
I’ve been looking to invest in an iPad for a while now as a virtual notebook, graphic design tool (when coupled with the super cool Apple Pencil, of course), and a portable workout monitor for working out with Apple Fitness+but was waiting for a good deal. Naturally, I was scanning Cyber Monday deals when I came across Best Buys’ refurbished deal on the 3rd-geniPad Air. If you’re still searching for a great deal even after the biggest sale events, you still have time to save and snag this good as new iPad.
While not the most recent iPad Air generation, the iPad Air 3 still has the Air’s signature sleek build with a modern finish, along with Apple’s renowned A12 Bionic chip and a lightning to USB charging cable. And if you are interested in using the tablet for graphic design or photo purposes, the 3rd-gen Air has a 10.5-inch retina display with True Tone display that measures ambient light color and brightness.
With an 8.0 MP back camera and 7.0MP front FaceTime HD camera, the more compact 3rd-gen Air still houses some pretty quality cameras. Given I probably won’t be using the tablet as a camera, the back cameras weren’t as much of a factor for me, but I was excited about the FaceTime HD aspect.
The best part about this deal — aside from the price — I also got two unexpected gifts upon purchasing: Free Apple Music and Apple TV subscriptions. WIth the iPad’s 10-hour battery life, I can finally binge Ted Lasso after editing my photos.
Along with iPads, Best Buy’s Geek Squad certified refurbished left over Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are just as sweet as leftover pie. So that you don’t waste a good as new product or your hard earned money, I highly suggest checking these out. And who knows, you may get a surprise gift attached as well.
