Save Money This Holiday Season with Refurbished Products

Early Black Friday Deals at Sonic Electronix

With the holiday season fast approaching, it is time to start shopping for all our loved ones. But when there are so many loved ones in our lives, the cost of the holidays can get pretty steep. That’s one reason why new holidays have been created to help the customer save more money while shopping for the holidays. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Thanksgiving sales are all in favor of the consumer saving money and getting more out of your holiday season. Who doesn’t want to get more for less? Another way to save money this season is to buy factory refurbished items.

Factory refurbished items are items that the manufacturer has received back and re-released after addressing any issues with the product. These items (also known as re-certified, re-issued, reconditioned, or rebuilt) have typically been returned to the manufacturer because the original customer was not 100% satisfied with the initial purchase. One thing that is important to note about these items is that it doesn’t always mean that the product had a problem. Often times these items simply didn’t meet the customers needs or that the customers wasn’t fully aware how to install the product, which resulted in an undesirable outcome. The item is then sent back to the manufacturer, tested to work perfectly, and resold as refurbished.  So what does that mean exactly? It means that the majority of these items never had any problem with them in the first place. The other percentage that did have a performance issue have been fixed to work just like a brand new product.

For an example, the Hifonics BXi1608 refurbished is available and offers the same performance as a brand new amplifier. The manufacturer still provides a warranty and coverage on the product. With all the same features as the brand new item, the refurbished is the perfect solution for a cost effective alternative with the same great performance.

When browsing through available products at Sonic Electronix it’s a common thought to believe that you’re looking at the lowest prices.  In some cases, the savings are even better in other sections of the website.  If you’re looking to stretch your dollar to its fullest, check the Liquidation Station!  Here, you can find an entire selection of close out goods which are refurbished or open box.  The best part about this section is the products are always changing, so you can find whatever specific product it is you’re looking for at an exceptional price.

So what exactly does Refurbished and Open Box mean?  Well, when a product is found defective by a manufacturer they will remanufacture the item by reusing its parts, testing it for defect, and certifying the item as Remanufactured, or Factory Refurbished.  Since buying brand new electronics also has its risks of defect rates, this process may decrease the rate of defect depending on the reputability of the company that remanufactured the goods.  The product refurbished status basically states that the manufacturer has recognized defect at one time, and now has deemed this item as a working product.

When a product is returned to Sonic Electronix within 30 days for whatever reason, if the product is tested in as non-defective and still in good condition the item will be restocked as an Open Box good.  If there are any cosmetic defects or missing items from the process this will be factored into the price and also described on the products listing.

The Liquidation Station at Sonic Electronix is definitely a great way to start saving for the Holidays coming up.  When searching for great electronics and the best possible deals the Liquidation Station has you covered.  Check out the selection of current refurbished or open box goods available and start saving today!
