<p class=”ContentPreview”>(StatePoint) Holiday spending is expected to rise this year over last, according to the National Retail Federation. While you may be budgeting for a more expensive season in some ways, keep in mind that when upgrading mobile devices for yourself or loved ones, you don’t necessarily need to go brand new and pay a premium.
<p class=”ContentPreview”>Lingering misconceptions persist that refurbished devices were necessarily broken or had problems. However, many such mobile phones, tablets and accessories that come from trade-in and upgrade programs were perfectly good devices that owners sent in for newer models.
<p class=”ContentPreview”>Luckily, for bargain hunters, such trade-ins and sales are becoming more popular, making it easier to navigate the market for a previously owned device.
<p class=”ContentPreview”>Just be sure you stick to reputable sources where you can trust the device to be in fully functional condition. For example, those from <a href=”http://stores.ebay.com/MyWit” rel=”nofollow”>MyWit</a> on eBay undergo an extensive 65-point inspection of cosmetic, functional and radio frequency (RF) performance to ensure 100 percent functionality. Tests verify that every function that a customer can use (camera, audio, SIM, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.) is in excellent working order and RF tests ensure wireless devices deliver a consistent quality of connection and do not drop available signals.
<p class=”ContentPreview”>“These days, refurbished devices can provide an affordable, high-quality alternative to a new device,” says David Conti, director of eCommerce at MyWit. “It’s also a thoughtful option for the eco-conscious, extending the life of devices and reducing electronic waste.”
<p class=”ContentPreview”>This holiday season, stretch your holiday budget without sacrificing on quality. Consider a great cost-saving secret on mobile upgrades, replacements, and tech gifts.
