TigerDirect is offering some great prices on some refurbished items this week. Just in case you don’t know, a refurbished items are “like new”. They were previously owned, but returned. Often these are cases where the original owner received it as a gift or discovered they had purchased the wrong item. Once they were returned to the retailer they were sent to the manufacturer to check that the item was in re-salable condition.
Not all the items here are refurbished. If they’re refurbished, it is noted in the description.
Check out what is, in my opinion, the top deal of the day: The 42 inch HDTV from LG.
