If you're looking to go down the Black Friday refurbished deals route this year, then we can hardly blame you. Not only is it a better option for the environment, but it's better for your wallet, too. For anyone who (understandably) doesn't have £500+ to spend on the best new vacuum cleaner from Dyson or £200 for a Ninja air fryer just before Christmas and in the middle of a cost-of-living crisis, then we totally get it. And we're here to offer up a couple of alternatives that are exactly the same, only they've been used but then revamped and re-sold. 

Depending on where you buy your refurbished goods, each item goes through a strict process to make sure that the product you're buying is in a resaleable condition. And so that you're happy with it! So that you can buy it rest assured that it won't break after a couple of months of use. Refurbished products always normally come with some sort of guarantee, too. Check that yours does before you hit pay.

Before we get to eight refurbished products we recommend that you buy this Black Friday and Cyber Monday, here's where to shop refurbished home goods online.

Where else to buy refurbished appliances?

It's always a good idea if you have a product in mind from a specific brand, e.g. KitchenAid or Dyson, to check the brand's website and see if it has a refurbished or renewed section. Companies might call it something different but after some digging, you'll soon find out. If you buy direct, you normally get better perks such as a longer guarantee period.

What refurbished products should I buy for my home?

The list is honestly endless. You can buy anything from a mattress to a sofa to a breadmaker that has been refurbished. It's just down to your personal preference, and if what you're specifically after is available. Our rule is the more the better! Buying new isn't the best for the environment, as you already know.
