If you're trying to squeeze the most value out of every hard-earned dollar on your next gadget purchase, then you should consider buying second-hand or "open box" options of those gadgets. You'll be surprised how much value you're still going to get despite giving up that "brand new" status.

It's best practice to immediately check every open-box unit you purchase because they have been used and may have some hidden caveats. Inspect the essentials such as storage and battery life as these are often some of the more common problem areas for open-box devices. With that being said, here are some amazing tech deals you shouldn't miss out on.

Buying open-box gadgets can save you several hundred dollars depending on the make and model and the condition of the unit. However, you should be aware that not every device you get is in perfect condition. Some may have small cosmetic blemishes, some devices can have a shorter battery life (because of battery health), and some can have slight signs of wear-and-tear. If you can get past these minor gripes, open-box devices can give you some pretty great devices at a greater value!
