I'm guessing today only - DailySteals is selling a refurbished Apple Ipad 2 16GB Wi-Fi+Verizon 3G for $319.99 plus $4.99 shipping. CLICK HERE TO BUY

A few things to keep in mind:

  • This IS refurbished with a 90 day warranty

  • This same model sells as a refurb with a 1 year warranty for $399 plus tax and free shipping (total $432 in Dallas, TX)



Yes you get a better warranty with Apple, and Verizon 3G is slow, but you save (in my area) $107....sooooo...you decide....is saving almost 25% a good deal? You're going to want a newer one in 6 months anyway right?

I'd rather have an Apple refurb for $319 minus the 3G...warranty and new case included.

In my experience and among many reviews on resellerratings.com, DS is a rip-off company who can take up to a month to ship, if at all. They do not have inventory. They rely on independent sellers. "Refurbished" could very well mean, used with damage and or parts missing. You've been warned.

OP, the red is nothing personal. But no matter how cheap something is, if it doesn't ship or is damaged, it's not a deal. I'm not saying people don't get lucky and get what's described. I guess it's a question of is it worth $320 to find out.

Yeah, this is going to be for people that want/need wireless (not just wifi).

I don't have any vested interest in DailySteals, but in the interest of fairness I've ordered a few things from them, and while they don't ship same day, orders have always shipped in a few days and always come as advertised. Family/friends have echoed the same experience.

for what its worth...i just ordered a new (retail box)camera from them and it was at my door in a week

Wondering about this company! They have a good deal on the Ipad, but I am reluctant to purchase from them based on several reviews. Just wondering about everyone's past experiences with them since sales are final and it sounds like customer service is difficult to reach. Definitely not a good deal if it comes used/broken/problematic! (Ipads are refurbed...w/90day warr)

Bought a tablet from them 14 days ago and have not received anything.

Unfortunatly I am finding this to be true, and I sure wish I knew this two weeks ago.
Ordered a Monitor on 11/10/12. Credit card was immediately charged, and I received a confirmation e-mail. But since then, no e-mails, tracking # or anyway to show the item is actually being processed. I checked "My account" on Dailysteals and there is nothing there. E-mail, and "Contact us" receive no responses either.

I will wait until Monday, and shall then file a dispute with my Discover card.

NEVER AGAIN

I've had two personal experiences with DS. The first one I ordered an HP frame "manufacturer refurbished" last year. It came in about 12 days in a regular grocery store box. There were chunks of missing wood around the frame and scratches all over it. Something was loose inside and the stand was missing. I contacted DS and the ONLY thing they did was send me a stand. I filed a PayPal dispute for 'not as described' and got a refund.

My second and FINAL go-round with them was about 3 months ago. I ordered a refurbished Diamond wireless range extender. 1 week, 2 weeks, nothing. I contacted DS and they told me their "distributor" was having problems getting the product. I asked for a refund. They refused. I asked for a shipping refund at the very least. They refused. 2 more weeks passed and still nothing. I filed a PayPal dispute and got a full refund only AFTER DS adamantly protested.

Frankly, the crooks at DS should be jailed for false advertising. Many of their 'factory refurbished' items are used junk that hasn't seen a factory since the day they were made. As for their shipping, these items could arrive faster by horse.

Addendum. Writing this made me think of an order I placed with 1SaleADay 13 days ago for a portable tablet speaker. So I go to their site and sure enough it's still "processing." So I did some research and people are having the exact same problem with 1sale as they are with DS. And guess where 1sale is located? 471 Cozine Ave Brooklyn, NY 11208. I'm guessing DS and 1sale are either under the same umbrella or at least in league together. Just type in '1SaleADay.com scams' and read much.

DS - 1529 Dean St, # 3, Brooklyn, NY

1SaleADay - 471 Cozine Ave Brooklyn, NY 11208

4.6 miles apart. If you Google Earth them, they are both in delapitated warehouses.
