There are some times when we advise readers to stay away from refurbished products, typically when a third party is responsible for the refurbishing process. This often means any warranty associated with the product has been voided and that can obviously lead to problems down the road. When Amazon refurbishes one of its own products, however, that product has been thoroughly tested and it comes with a warranty. Such is the case with the Certified Refurbished Amazon Echo, which is on sale right now in both black and white.
Amazon’s Echo speaker is worth the $180 the company charges for a new one, but shaving $45 off that hefty price makes it accessible to many more people. You had better hurry though, because this deal is only around while supplies last.
