Summer is quickly coming to an end over here and back to school vibes are everywhere. I know I can’t believe it either. As I start to make a list of what is needed, the first thing that comes to mind is laptops. Teachers and students will be relying on them heavily this year. My district is planning to go with a hybrid model so I will be teaching from home and school. My students will also be part of daily zoom calls, conferences, and a majority of their work will be on programs that can only be accessed through this type of accessible technology. Laptops can be expensive so I am so excited to be partnering up with eBay to share how you can find amazing refurbished laptops on their marketplace. When it comes to buying laptops at a great value, eBay is the first destination I’ll go to.
Why shop for refurbished laptops on ebay? Well first, the greatest benefit of back to school shopping on eBay is all of the products that you have to choose from. eBay isn’t like a traditional retailer. On eBay, other internet users sell products that they have to consumers. With this type of set up, eBay has an unlimited number of products to choose from and a number of sellers to do business with. Since many sellers are selling the same products or similar products like refurbished Dell, Acer, and Lenovo laptops you have the option to choose who you want to do business with. You also get such a value when you shop through eBay. You can get up to 50% Off on refurbished laptops and trust they are tested. The laptops are verified and come direct from Manufacturers.
Pro tip: A simple look at the seller’s information will take you to the seller feedback page. I typically look for a overall number of positive feedback rankings before I buy! I also always look at the condition of the product, the return policy of the seller, and in this case I do a little research on the life expectancy of the model of the laptop I am looking for.
How do I buy on eBay? There are two ways to buy on eBay. With Buy It Now, you pay a fixed price and buy the item immediately, or you can bid on an item and try to win it for a lower price in an auction. On some listings you can also make an offer of the price you’d like to pay.
Is my purchased protected? There is a 90 day warranty which gives customers assurance + protection refurbished products will work and last like-new. There is also a hassle free money back guarantee. If the product was not as expected, you can return it and eBay will cover the cost.
This school year as we embrace the new normal of home-schooling, remote learning, online classes, distance education, and hybrid learning we know one thing for sure. Laptops are in. As a teacher, it is so nice to know there are so many options for affordable refurbished laptops. Now to make sure the wifi can handle all the online learning.
