Apple TV (4th gen) with Siri remote in refurbished condition hits Apple’s online store

It’s only been a few short months since the 4th generation Apple TV with Siri remote was released, but it’s already available in refurbished condition from Apple’s online store. The discounts are slight, but they are definitely better than paying full-price: 32GB is $129 (Reg. $149) and 64GB is $169 (Reg. $199). Apple’s refurbished products include a full one-year warranty and generally come in great condition. Just last week Apple began offering refurbished 12-inch MacBooks for the first time ever.

We’ve seen a handful of deals for Apple’s latest streaming media player during the holiday season with prices dropping as low as $100 for the 32GB model and $150 for the higher-end 64GB variant. If you’d prefer to stay away from a refurb and are looking to save a few bucks, RadioShack currently has it bundled with an HDMI cable for $126 shipped.

(1) What are Apple Certified Refurbished Products?

Apple Certified Refurbished Products are pre-owned Apple products that undergo Apple’s stringent refurbishment process prior to being offered for sale. While only some units are returned due to technical issues, all units undergo Apple’s stringent quality refurbishment process.

Each Apple Certified Refurbished Product:

  • is fully tested (including full burn-in testing).
  • is refurbished with replacement parts for any defective modules identified in testing.
  • is put through a thorough cleaning process and inspection.
  • is repackaged (including appropriate manuals, cables, new boxes, etc.).
  • includes either the Mac OS originally shipped with the unit or, in some cases, a more recent version*.
  • is given a new refurbished part number and serial number.
  • is placed into a Final QA inspection prior to being added to sellable refurbished stock.

Amazon’s Xmas shipping cutoff for Prime is today, score last-minute deals & Apple gifts

From 9to5Toys.com:

Today is your last chance to place a Prime order at Amazon and get it in time for Christmas without having to pay extra for expedited delivery. That means you can avoid crowds at the mall and still knock out the rest of your holiday shopping. Even better, there are still tons of deals available so you can save a few bucks while you’re at it. Don’t stress about finding good gifts either. We’ve put together several guides that’ll steer you in the right direction.

First off, if you’re not yet a Prime member go ahead and sign-up for a free trial. Along with 2-day shipping on millions of products, Amazon Prime also includes unlimited photo storage, early access to Lightning deals, and streaming of TV shows/movies. Pro tip: Prime memberships make great gifts for new and current Prime shoppers.

For last-minute deals you should head to the Gold Box page. There you’ll find the Deals of the Day, Lighting Deals, coupons, and on-going offers. Typically, Deals of the Day offer the greatest savings, but Lightning Deals are great too if you’re quick enough to score the best ones. Amazon’s Holiday Central makes it really easy to find gifts for anyone. Just browse through different categories including electronics, toys, books, movies & TV, tools & home improvement, and others to get inspired. If all else fails, here are a couple can’t-miss gift ideas to bail out you procrastinating shoppers:

Mophie Juice Pack Plus for iPhone 6/6s: from $90.41

SteelSeries Stratus XL Bluetooth Wireless Gaming Controller for iOS Devices: $61.50

Panasonic Eneloop Power Pack Rechargeable Batteries: $34.98

The Anchor – Under-Desk Headphone Stand Mount: $14.95

Belkin Mini Travel Charger/Surge Protector with Dual USB Ports: $14.99

Mohu Leaf Metro Over-the-Air HDTV Antenna: $19.99

Still looking for more gift ideas? Browse our guides to see what products we recommend:

It’s worth noting that other retailers including Best Buy are also offering free 2-day shipping, but they obviously don’t come close to offering the same breadth of products as Amazon.

Apple fans are a dedicated bunch. Many of us diehards run out and buy every new gadget, making it nearly impossible for friends and family to come up with an original gift idea related to one of our biggest passions. My holiday gift guide includes items that you can’t buy from your local Apple store, but are sure to delight any fan of the company. These aren’t complementary products like a nice iPhone stand or Apple Watch band, but rather hard-to-find swag and collectibles that only real Apple fans would appreciate. Head below to take a look at my outside-the-box gift ideas for the Apple lover in your life: expand full story
