It is no secret that Apple products are expensive. Some of us save money by buying used products but you usually can’t find the latest products that way and there is always the unknown of something used. There is another option that can save money on newer products. Apple offers “refurbished” products on their website. Unlike some of the other sites that claim to have refurbished products, these are refurbished and guaranteed by Apple. You get the same warranty as a new product and can even get Apple Care. Availability is constantly changing so if you are looking for something specific you may have to check back later.
The link below will take you to an article that covers this in more detail.
