Places To Buy A Refurbished GPS

Aug 7, 2008
Getting a refurbished GPS has been repeatedly shown to be a good idea. They help you save money on something you were already going to purchase and they have the same functionality as a regular GPS unit. But where can one find a refurbished GPS?

The first location the vast majority of people are going to search is on the internet. This is for good reason. Probably the best place to find what you are looking for is on the internet, if you know how to look. There can be tons of misinformation and even outright lies on the internet so navigating it and picking a trustworthy source is very important.

One very trustworthy source for making online purchases is Amazon. Over the years they have firmly established themselves as an online retailer, gaining the trust of millions of individuals worldwide. The breadth of the products they offer is impressive and you can pretty much find anything you are looking for on its pages. The even have a robust offering of refurbished GPS units. One key to working the Amazon game is to check a lot of different listings and not to assume that a greatly reduced price is an automatic deal. Check around and do price comparisons.

Another big name in online products is eBay. You probably won't find many new refurbished items here, but you can definitely find products for cheap. Products sold on eBay are generally used or unwanted products that are being sold by individuals. There are some retailers on eBay, but they generally don't offer refurbished items and prices are the same as any other online retailer.

In addition to these two massive players in online retailing, Buy.com is also another site that is generally useful for find items. However, in terms of refurbished GPS units this retailer is not very useful. A search on "refurbished GPS" returned many different results and only a very small minority were actually GPS units! This can be very frustrating as a user and really can turn you off to using them to find this type of product.

Besides online stores, you might find what you are looking for at a retailer near where you live. The brands that you might go to are Circuit City, Radio Shack, Best Buy, Staples, or Fry's because these stores offer a slew of consumer electronics, including GPS. However, you might be hard pressed to actually find a refurbished item at one of these stores. It is not everyday that you can walk into a Best Buy and peruse their latest selection of refurbished GPS units.

However, the one place that you might find some refurbished items on a regular basis would be a place like Fry's. They always seem to be having a refurbished this or that lying around somewhere in the corner or on an end cap. These items usually go fairly quickly if they are of the door buster variety (a door buster is an item sold at a loss to get people into the store to buy other items), but you can still find them if you check your local paper often enough.

Where ever you buy your refurbished device you are sure to get a deal on it that will save you money, which is always a good thing.
