Best Buy today opened up another pre-Black Friday sale, calling this one its "Beat the Rush" sale and offering customers savings on iPhone XS and XS Max, 4K TVs, Beats headphones, Philips Hue lights, certified refurbished AirPods, and more. This sale will last through Saturday, November 17 at 11:59 p.m. CT, so if you see anything you're interested in be sure to make your purchase before the discounts expire.

Anyone know who refurbishes those AirPods and how?


I’m not certain, but personally no matter who it is this is something I’d be a little grossed out by buying refurb - just a little more “personal” than something like a computer or light bulb.

I’m sure it’s fine, but still...

Key take away;
"After looking at the product page ('https://www.bestbuy.com/site/airpods-geek-squad-certified-refurbished-in-ear-headphones-white/5948015.p?skuId=5948015&CMP=ocss') and doing some further research I have some more information about the warranty. Since this has been refurbished by our Geek Squad, it no longer has the 1 year manufacturing warranty available from Apple. The head phones you purchased have a 90 day warranty for parts and labor."

Some of the reviews here not so inspiring:

All it would take is one blob of ear wax...

I misread the title of this as

Best Buy's "Best the Rush" Sale

And now I'm disappointed that Best Buy didn't take the opportunity to name it that.

We can discuss where my check should be mailed when Best Buy fixes that snafu.
