Kajeet: Go Green with Refurbished Phones

John Platt, January 03, 2017

My wife just turned in a new cell phone for a new one with a better battery life. What happened to her old phone, you ask? It got refurbished and resold to a new customer.

Refurbished phones are a great idea. They're cheaper than new phones, and they've been certified to work just as well. They still have a full product lifespan ahead of them, they have the basic features everyone wants (unless you really need a phone with an 8 megapixel camera), and they save you money.

Oh yeah, refurbished phones are also old phones that don't end up in landfills.

On company that specializes in refurbished phones is Kajeet -- a pre-paid cell company that offers unlimited texting for just $24.99 a month. Perfect for teens!

Their refurbished phones start as low as $34.99. Not bad. And considering how roughly the average teen treats his or her phone, it's probably a good idea to go with a cheaper model.

Kajeet also has great parental controls and limits, so this really is a pretty good choice for parents and kids. And it's a green one, too!

Meanwhile, plenty of other companies and mobile service providers offer refurbished phones, often at great deals. If you're going to replace your current phone, make sure to ask your provider what they offer. You might save yourself a bundle and save some resources from the landfill in the process.
