Are you feeling lucky? I prefer my Apple products with AppleCare (which means either new or Certified Apple Refurbished), but if saving some dollars is worth a bit of risk to you, this is the deal to beat, today:
Cowboom‘s Deal of the Day is a refurbished 16GB iPad Air for just $249. Now, you can purchase warranty coverage for it through Cowboom—$29 for a year, or $50 for 2 years—and for a mobile device that may well be dropped, it’s a good idea to do so. I would probably get the coverage. I just can’t tell you how Cowboom handles it, because I don’t have any experience with it.
Also, this won’t come in a super-pretty box with all the accessories, so it wouldn’t be great for a gift. But at $250 off, it’s kind of hard to complain.
