EB Games Summer Sales 20% off pre-owned Macbook, iphone, ipad, tablets, smart phone, etc

340 items listed, some are sold out, some can be delivered, some collect from stores, too many to list.
I listed some of the high cost and some lowest cost here. I removed the sample listing (too long)

best thing is find an item that can be delivered (around $7 for an iPad), took me too long to try and find a store with stock to pickup .

    TL;DR

  •  

    are those good prices for iPad pros?

  •  

    I don't see any bargains for iPhones.

  •  

    got an ipod classic before, scratched af. Not sure if 'refurbished' means anything useful.

    1) EB “refurbished” means nothing and from my experience the quality is shit house.
    2) Hence, since these are just second hand, prices are far from a bargain.

      ye my old google nexus tablet from there died in a year

      if you can find a store with the stocks, you can inspect the product first.
      I purchased an iPhone from them sometime ago, and did have to return for another one (scratches on back panel) . The replacement one was perfect. There is also a free returns within 7 days.

      this is what on their Checkout area -

      To get a Preowned device ready for its new home, it first undergoes rigorous checks by our Refurbishment team.
      To make sure it lives up to the awesome standard you’d expect, we:
      Perform a check on all components
      Inspect all ports and inputs
      Refurbish or replace parts to meet our standards
      Format the device and restore the system
      Give it a good clean!
      On the rare chance that your device is anything less than awesome, give our Customer Service Team a call on 133 930 and we'll organise a free return and replacement.

        Doesn't say anything about warranty beyond the 7 days though?

        Refurbish or replace parts to meet our standards

        I can't say I disagree with this, it's just a shame that their standards are absolute rubbish.

        Format the device and restore the system

        I would honestly be concerned if anything got traded in still locked and full of data. This is already done.

        What else, give it a clean and look at the ports?

        I should be selling my stuff as refurbished; seemingly all you have to do is clean it, make sure ports work and wipe it.

    Second hand, not seeing any bargains whatsoever.

    Any info on warranty of their refurbished devices?

    I always assume the batteries are going to be clapped out on this kind of stuff.

    From experience, physical condition of EB's refurbishments can be pot luck…functionality ok though.

    From personal experience I’d give these a miss. I bought a 10 month old iPhone from EB a couple of years ago that looked in pristine condition - no scratches or cracks and looked like it was straight out of the box. However after a few months the battery would barely hold a charge. I took it to the Apple store and they ran a diagnostic saying it had over 1000 cycles on the battery. That meant it had been fully discharged and recharged over 3 times PER DAY. When I said I wasn’t the original owner, the tech said that kind of use could be from something like an Uber Eats delivery rider or courier. The warranty wouldn’t apply for that kind of usage and a new battery was ½ of what I had paid for the phone. I ended up buying the official Apple battery case and got a few more months out of it before trading it in myself. EB accepted it back for trade credit no questions asked, gave me bonus credit if 8 used it towards gaming equipment and didn’t check battery cycles. Pretty sure they just re-sold it a 2nd time to the next sucker. I used the credit to buy a (brand new) Switch and have only bought new iPhones since.

    "Refurbished" and "Refurbished by EB Games" mean totally different things.

    Not to mention they aren't even competitive. They think they can still get $200 for my old iPad!? Mine is cosmetically excellent but it was released in 2012. It struggles to even load up a webpage these days.
    That's not even mentioning the battery either.

    I don't think second hand items are considered a bargain! Not to mention some of their Apple products are more competitive through the Apple refurbished store.
