As a sharp online shopper, you realize that the biggest online shopping discounts are usually not high-profile events. However, we are going to share one of our best kept secrets to help you bargain shop for the biggest deals on “Open-Box” products.
What does the term Open-Box mean? And why are these items so heavily discounted?
We will discuss common Open-Box questions and provide a more in-depth insight to see if you are more of an “Open-Box” or “Closed-Box” customer.
What does Open-Box Mean?
An Open-Box item is an uninstalled item that has been returned to us within the return period. The box may be damaged, opened, or missing. However, the product is still in new condition and just can’t be sold as “brand new” anymore. It is likely the customer purchased the item and it did not fit their needs.
Why order a Open-Box Item?
“Open-Box” deals are one of the best shopping secrets for any savvy shopper. It is the perfect way to get a like-new product for a fraction of the original retail price.
