What Does Certified Refurbished Mean?

Often when looking to buy a used or refurbished product the words “Certified Refurbished” plastered all over the product title and description.

The Basics

Similar to the Grading Process, the ‘Certified Refurbished’ condition can sometimes mean different things within the retail industry. This is because the standards for refurbishing goods can vary depending on the manufacturer or vendor.

When you buy from DealScoop, Certified Refurbished items will arrive in special refurbished packaging and the products will look and feel new.

Are Certified Refurbished products tested?

Yes! DealScoop works with large manufacturers like HP and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, by taking their demos, last ones, and returns and then processes them using our proprietary testing and refurbishing process. Our team follows a detailed procedure to physically and digitally clean each product, re-load it with the proper software, and then finally run exhaustive tests to ensure the product functions like new. In fact, refurbished products are tested by people, not machines, so they often go through a higher level of quality control than new products; this means it’s unlikely you’ll receive a lemon.

What are the benefits of buying Certified Refurbished items from DealScoop?

If you’re still on the fence about buying refurbished, here is another perk of buying refurbished products. Its Eco-friendly! Product returns create 5 billion pounds of waste each year. That’s 300,000 garbage trucks. When you buy from DealScoop, you divert those products from a landfill to a home. Any products DealScoop is unable to refurbish get properly recycled, including all packing materials and cables.

When you buy refurbished on DealScoop, in addition to saving a good chunk of cash (our deals can save you up to 25% off of the original retail price), and the environment, you can feel good knowing that every item comes with a 90-day warranty. This ensures that you—the buyer, are completely satisfied with your purchase.
