expiredHeadphone jackers: Amazon’s Gold Box today is unlocked (cert refurb) iPhone 6s in all sizes $420-$530 shipped

There are lots of reasons to pick up a certified refurbished unlocked iPhone 6s at a deep discount at Amazon. Saving a ton of money on what was until a month ago THE phone to have is top among them but in today’s day and age, can you really afford to go a day without a smartphone? This offer makes a great backup, development phone, parents/kids phone or burner.

Or maybe you just need that friggen headphone jack.

Pair it with T-Mobile’s unbelievable $30 unlimited data plan/SIM for pre-paid utopia.

Apple doesn’t generally sell refurbished iPhones directly to the public, instead offering them as replacements for broken iPhone trade-ins so these prices are hard to find at reputable Apple certified retailers.

Amazon GoldBoxes are one day only and these generally dry up as the day goes on so if you have your eyes on one of these beauties, by all means get in soon.

On my recent trip to San Francisco, I realized that I had forgotten to bring my iPhone wall charger. It wasn’t the end of the world because I had a selection of other phones with me, but I had some key info — like boarding passes etc. — on my iPhone, and I needed to charge it.

Grabbing a new charger would only take $20 and a trip to the local convenience store, but I realized that I had a portable charger in my backpack — one with a Lightning port and plenty of juice to power up my phone. I ended up going a full four days using nothing but the Olala 13000mAh portable battery charger for my energy needs…
