German supermarket giant ALDI has continued to expand its consumer electronics arsenal, with the unveiling of a refurbished iPhone 6S (64GB) for $469, included within its January 30 Special Buys sale.
The unlocked handset is available in space grey or silver, accompanied by a 12 month warranty.
Currently stocked at retailers like Kogan.com, a brand new iPhone 6S (32GB) is retailing from $549.
ALDI asserts each refurbished device has undergone “extensive inspection”, functional texting and data wipe processes.
Devices are said to be fully re-manufactured (Dis- and Resassembly) using only authentic parts.
The supermarket affirms refurbished handsets are also fully sanitised, cleaned and securely boxed.
ALDI’s “extensive and detailed” cosmetic inspection claims to guarantee no LCD discolorations, screen lifting/gaps, no signs of liquid damage, and only “minimal scratches” [0.5mm or less].
The news comes after Apple reported lower than expected sales of its 2018 iPhones, amidst a global landscape of low replacement demand.
ALDI has reportedly received notable success with previous refurbished iPhones, after advertising a similar sale last year.
