Boost Mobile, the youth-focused telco brand, has extended its range of affordable refurbished Apple products to include the Apple Watch, iPads and a sub-$200 iPhone which will be offered through Coles supermarkets across Australia.
These refurbished products will also be available through Boost Mobile’s own online store – The Refurb Shop.
Available from today, premium refurbished iPads and Apple Watches will be available from as little as $249.
And the refurbished iPhone 7 will also be available at a $100 discount from Coles from just $199.
Sales of refurbished devices over the last 18 months has exploded with a 150 per cent increase in year on year growth in the category which indicated there is a strong demand for these second hand devices.
Boost Mobile estimates there are more than a million refurbished devices being sold in Australia each year with that number set to increase to 1.5 million over the next 12 months.
Each of the products on offer go through a rigorous 72 point check and come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee along with a 12-month warranty so customers can purchase with confidence.
“There is a growing acceptance of refurbished devices in Australia as people realise the great value and number of quality options available,” says general manager of Boost Mobile, Jason Haynes.
“On top of that trust knowing each device has gone through rigorous testing, cleaning, and re-packaging process.
“As the number one mobile youth brand in the country that has already done the work in to become a trusted refurb seller, Boost is well positioned to deliver these additional options to value-driven customers.”
The Apple Watch offered by Boost will be Series 3 and Series 4 devices which were originally priced at $456 in 2017. Boost’s price will be $249.
Apple Watch naturally pairs with the iPhone so customers can track their health and wellness, their heart rate as well as receive their notifications, control their music and access a variety of apps right there from their wrist.
The refurbished iPads from Boost will include the iPad fifth and sixth generations plus the iPad Pair 1, 2 and 3 and iPad Mini 4.
iPad 5 with 9.7-inch Retina Display was released for $469. The iPad also support mobile connectivity and will comes with a Boost Mobile prepaid SIM with 20GB of data. Prices start at $249.
The $199 iPhone 7 from Boost Mobile available at Coles Supermarkets brings the price down from $299 while stocks last.
The unlocked Boost Mobile refurbished iPhone 7 from Coles comes with a bundled $10 Boost Mobile SIM which runs on Telstra, Australia’s largest network.
The iPhone 7 has a 12-megapixel camera and a 7-megapixel selfie camera along with Touch ID fingerprint reader in the home button and Siri digital voice assistant.
