Refurbished tech gear is old, worn, used, scuffed or just generally junk, right? Not always! Some refurbs are quite literally good as new, right down to the warranty. Case in point: Sonos is once again offering the refurbished Sonos Play:1 speaker for $99, a full $100 off the original price. It’s available in black only; the white model is sold out.

Like Apple and Vitamix, Sonos is a premium brand, with prices to match. Of course there are cheaper alternatives, but some folks just want that name, you know? Discounts are pretty rare, so when they come around, it’s worth a look.
Sonos Certified Refurbished gear is, for all intents and purposes, good as new. It’s cleaned, tested and inspected. It’s packed in a new box with new accessories. It’s backed by a one-year warranty. You even get a 45-day money-back guarantee and free returns.
If you’re not already acquainted with the product lineup, you’ll want to do your homework — starting with CNET’s Sonos Play:1 review. It’s definitely an older model in the Sonos lineup (and not to be confused with the Sonos One), but still a good, er, one.
Bottom line: If you want this brand, buy refurbished — and act fast, because inventory tends to go quickly.
Sonos One is the best sounding smart speaker you can…
