Get The Store’s guide to top brands in refurbished electronics, on sale with the best deals, and ready to ship straight to your home.
We’re all living in the new work-from-home economy and chances are you’re directly affected by the change. Thanks to the global COVID pandemic you may be one of the millions of American employees working from home while scrambling to access deals on electronics for your home office. In the search for discounted gadgets from your favorite brands, you may not be aware that premium refurbished electronics is your best, most affordable option.
If you’re lucky, you might have a whole room to fill with all the refurbished gadgets you need. But if you’re like the vast majority of Americans who were completely unprepared to work from home, chances are you’re sitting at the kitchen table, shoved on the corner of your living room, or using the bed and pillows as your home office desk–all while doing your best to tune out the dog parking, kids playing, and TV blaring in a nearby room. Sure you get the advantage of working in your pajamas. But without the tools to do your job, you may be wondering if it’s worth sacrificing your former office life.
Moreover, you may not have the budget to stock up on everything you need right now. You may even be waiting for life to return to “normal.” But according to several nationwide surveys, the work-from-home economy is likely to continue long past the coronavirus pandemic. So if you’re working from home today, it’s time to stock your space with refurbished electronics.
That sounds expensive, but I promise it doesn’t have to be. In fact you can get great deals on high quality brand name electronics by purchasing premium refurbished products. At The Store, our premium refurbished electronics are Certified ResStored. That means you never have to worry about quality, function or appearance. And every product comes with free returns and a 1-year warranty.
Check out our list of 9 best deals on refurbished electronics you need for your home office right now:
Deal #1: Refurbished Anker Soundcore Flare+ Black Portable Bluetooth 360 Speaker All-Round Sound
If you’re working from home in an empty house, it can get lonely. In fact the silence can be absolute torture if you’re a social person. You may yearn for the sound of people talking, but when you turn on the TV or Spotify, you realize the words can also be distracting. Ah the conundrum.
Enter a cheap, high quality portable bluetooth speaker that can sit on any surface you call your desk, playing rainforest sounds and acoustic spa music while you work. Anker Soundcore Flare delivers intensive bass and beat driven light shows. Its back-to-back full range drivers are combined with dual passive bass radiators and tweeters to deliver 25W of all around sound with breathtaking clarity. Note how its Precision EQ adjustment and driver configuration injects low end power for heart thumping (non-verbal) Beats.Charge lasts for four hours, so I’d recommend plugging it in on your lunch break :)
