(Pocket-lint) – If you’ve browsed Amazon a lot in recent years, you may have noticed on several occasions that it’s possible to buy refurbished goods there, i.e. products which still have a good guarantee of good operation for a long time.
Amazon Renewed is the name given to this storefront of refurbished products. You can often find great discounts on products from various tech categories here, making them more affordable than new versions. Here are all the details.
What are Amazon Renewed devices?
The devices that Amazon sells through its Renewed service, which you can check out on the storefront here, aren’t new. They’ve been refurbished to “work and look like new,” according to Amazon.
They come with a one-year warranty, which means they’ll work flawlessly for at least that time, although it’s worth noting that new devices often come with longer warranties.
It’s a bit like buying an “as new” product on a marketplace like eBay, but with a lot more guarantees and Amazon’s stamp of authenticity.
What can I buy on Amazon Renewed?
Amazon Renewed covers a whole host of product categories, broken down into the following list, which you’ll be familiar with from its main site:
- home and kitchen
- desktop computers
- Video games
- Wearable Technology
- Home cinema
- office products
- Amazon devices
This means that you can purchase a whole host of different products under this program, all with the same one-year warranty.

Is Amazon Renewed reliable?
You might be wondering if you can trust Amazon Renewed, but the good news is that it’s a pretty good system: you’ll get devices as described, often at great prices. interesting.
What you have to accept, however, is that the warranty is only for one year. Therefore, if you want a longer-term warranty, it’s best to buy at full price or elsewhere.
If you believe the product is not performing as it should, you may return it at any time for a full refund or replacement.
How do I buy Amazon Renewed products?
Finding renewed products on Amazon can be a bit hit and miss. When you search for an item on the store, you may sometimes see a surprisingly affordable offer and then notice “(Renewed)” at the end of the name, for example.
If you only want to see the renewed offers, you can follow this link to the corresponding section of the Amazon site and consult a more limited catalog of its offers.
Are Amazon Renewed devices and deals any good?
The other good news about Amazon Renewed is that it has some really great devices on its pages – its used phones, for example, don’t show the latest flagships, but offer iPhones from a few years ago to interesting prices.
Finding out if deals are good requires research – it’s a good idea to check the market and see what the devices in question fetch when new, for example, before committing to one. Likewise, it’s interesting to see what you can get for a used version that doesn’t have Amazon’s warranty.
Overall, though, there are some great prices to explore, and Amazon likes to give some seriously awesome discounts on its own devices too, like Fire tablets and Alexa speakers.
