Hi,

I have been thinking of getting an Ipad and going the refurb route. I found a website called Irefurbstock.com which had a grade A 16GB Ipad Air 2 for £239, this also comes with 1 year Applecare, a case and a £25 Itunes voucher.

Is this a case of 'If something is too good to be true...'

Thanks

Just be careful...I bought a refurbished iPad from a
large supermarket retailer at Christmas and it started playing up after a few days. After a week of updating, rebooting and reinstalling I was directed to the Apple Genius Bar to fault find by the store's technical department only to be told that it was out of warranty, despite the fact that I had only owned it for a very short time. The man at the Apple Store told me they only provide 12 months AppleCare if purchased direct from Apple. Fortunately the store gave me a full refund after I provided them with a report from Apple but I don't know what would have happened if it had failed a few months down the line as the man from the technical support team said "Well yes, it might be out of warranty, it's a refurbished one." It was a few weeks old and I genuinely thought it had 12 months warranty but obviously not.

No idea about reliability, but if I am looking at the same site as you then the site appears credible. If the merchant is based in Dublin and you are based in UK, there may be potential legal enforcement issues if you ever encounter a dispute. How would you be purchasing: via a 3rd-party site and / paying via a general payment processor intermediary? Consider that purchases over £100 if paid for wholly or partly on a UK-issued credit card (not debit card) are entitled to "Section 75 protection" from the card issuer that is then jointly responsible to provide the same sale obligations as provided the merchant. Question here is do you feel comfortable with the legitimacy of the merchant? Also note that S75 cover would normally not apply if purchased via a general payment processor intermediary such as PayPal.
