Customers can save up to £190 on models including the iPhone SE and Samsung S21
Vodafone’s new refurbished phone range allows customers to purchase a refurbished phone at a lower price point than a brand new model.
Through the initiative, customers can save up to £190 on a device, including models such as the iPhone SE and Samsung S21
Vodafone has implemented a number of new customer service offerings within the initiative, in order to keep this purchasing option as sustainable and attractive as possible.
These include Vodafone offering a two-year warranty on every pay-monthly refurbished phone, and all of the refurbished handsets exclusively being offered in either ‘Great’ or ‘Pristine’ condition. Every phone in the range has also been Vodafone Assured, which involves a full 32-point visual and diagnostic check.
Could refurbished phones become universally adopted?
According to recent research, 73% of UK consumers would consider buying a refurbished phone to save money.
Interestingly, 55% of respondents would consider buying a refurbished phone for environmental reasons.
This initiative has been designed to support Vodafone’s commitment to reduce e-waste and promote a circular economy, as the company works towards its pledge of net zero for its UK operations by 2027.
“More people than ever are now considering refurbished devices so they can get a great value phone and be friendlier to the planet,” commented Max Taylor, Chief Commercial Officer, Vodafone UK.
“With our market-leading two-year warranty, 32-point health check, and Vodafone EVO, the UK’s best smartphone plan, buying a refurbished phone from Vodafone gives customers peace of mind and flexibility.”
