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.
