One great way to save money when buy Apple gear is to go the refurbished route. Unlike some company's refurb items, Apple refurbs are as good as new. But short of checking the Apple website every 10 minutes, how do you know when a refurbished model that you’ve been looking for is on sale? Meet RefurbMe.
RefurbMe catalogues all the latest Apple Store refurbs and can notify you when price and/or availability changes. The site lists Mac desktops and laptops, monitors, iPods, iPads, iPhones, and even the Apple TV. You can filter the listings by category or just scroll through a master list.
You can filter the results by country, price, release date, and whether or not the products are in stock. Then inside each category, you can filter by additional specs, like capacity and colour, where applicable.
If you sign up for a free account, RefurbMe will send you text or email alerts whenever a new product arrives. Set up what you want to be alerted about, then click 'Create an email alert'.
