You don’t have to wait until Prime Day to score great deals on Amazon-branded gear, as evidenced by the company’s big sale on certified-refurbished devices.
It’s even better for Prime subscribers, who get an extra 10% off at checkout.
One more recommendation: the refurbished second-gen Echo Show for $149.99 — $134.99 for Prime members. This new model has never been priced below $180.
All of Amazon’s certified-refurbished products are fully tested to look and operate just like new, and they come with the same warranties as their new counterparts. Therefore, there’s really no downside to going the refurb route — though you’re likely to end up with generic brown-box (as opposed to retail) packaging, something to consider you’re buying an item to give as a gift.
