Thanks for the feedback dc2447 and Welcome to HotUKDeals :)

Some refurbished goods are as good as or sometimes better than new, as they're checked over, given a full year's guarantee, but cost less.

Personally, I think it's much better to give people the option of what could be a substantial saving, on a product they might not otherwise be able to afford.

As long as offers are clearly marked as refurbished/reconditioned I see no problem with offering our members a clear choice, remember a lot of these reconditioned items are still brand new and unused having been sent out to a customer who has inspected them and returned them under the distance selling regs as not suitable. The manufacturers cant sell them as new in this circumstance so repackage and sell as refurbished.

I have had and will continue to buy some real good bargains this way and am happy to offer the same on the hot deals forum to others.

Yup as long as they are proper refurbs from reputable sellers there shouldn't be an issue. In any case there are not that many refurbs posted on here so it wouldn't fill a whole forum. They come in waves so maybe it just seems like a lot right now.

I got my hands on a refurbished phone from Carphone Warehouse and believe me it was flippin great phone just like new but cheaper.

Not to menchion the refurb Ipod's from apple, as all those who have got those in the past (inc me) couldnt notice they were refurbs. Of course it is important to always point out its a refurb offer, and from a retailer we trust.

Have to agree with most comments,if its clearly marked as refurbished then members should not have a problem.
Refurbished goods could surprise you as some conditions are as new and you just can't tell the difference.

Interestingly enough, buying refurbished goods is now safer than its ever been. Even second hand goods need to last a reasonable length of time, bearing in mind how much has been paid. Recent changes in the law now put the onus onto the trade seller to prove the item wasn't faulty when sold. In effect, that means that any problem with the item in the first six months is automatically assumed to have been faulty when sold unless the merchant can prove otherwise. Your rights after that (without a guarantee) are less clear cut.

Many traders offer a 90 day warranty, but despite what they say, in effect you are always getting a 6 month warranty, though, due to the changes in the law.

Even applies to second hand cars - personal story:

I bought an old car from a garage for £500. Dealer puts trade sale, sold as seen, on the receipt. Timing chain goes after a week, car is dead. I go back to trader and ask him to repair or replace the car. Trader says, trade sale,sold as seen, tell you what I'll charge you 50% of the repair.
Me: I do hope you are not seeking to limit my consumer rights. I told you that I needed the car for work, that is I am a consumer and not a business.(that is actually a criminal offence - he's tried to avoid his obligations by writing trade sale, no warranty on the receipt)
Trader: No no not at all, I'm not seeking to limit your rights. Bring it in, I'll fix it next week.
It developed another fault after that and I made him fix that too.

Good on you CFC....just hope the car is now in good working order.

Just to bump my own thread - I have noticed that there has been a swathe of refurb deals being posted recently without clearly pointing out that the items are refurbed.

Heres a recent example.

I must confess it is the most annoying thing in an otherwise excellent website.

It says Refurbished Item in the title dc2447? Maybe a mod put it there as if it wasn't put in by a member a mod would probably do so.
#16
If you notice those errors, it's always good to post in the thread and let a moderator know so we can help people learn to include more info on deals.
#17
I just put it there.
