Reconditioned appliances can be purchased at a number of stores, including Sears and Best Buy. Both stores sell reconditioned appliances online, such as refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers and dishwashers, as of 2015.
Buying reconditioned appliances from Best Buy allows consumers to buy items that have been repaired and restored to look like new, often at a much lower price. These items have been repaired either by the original manufacturer, through a third-party or Best Buy's in-house repair centers. All of the refurbished items sold through Best Buy come with a warranty and policies, such as those for returns and exchanges.
Reconditioned appliances through Sears are also sold online, and consumers can find these items in the outlet section of the website. Significant savings can be found on the website, and reconditioned items purchased from Sears can be delivered to the home of the buyer or picked up in store. All of the items sold through the Sears outlet section come with full manufacturer's warranties, as of 2015. The reconditioned items available on the site may simply be a return, a floor model, items with cosmetic damage or may have items missing, such as an owner's manual. All reconditioned items sold through Sears have been repaired and tested, ensuring like-new specifications. They are also certified items.
