I’ve been trying to be better at cleaning my house. So every morning after Don is in school I clean up the clutter, wipe off the countertops, and then vacuum and mop. To simplify things, I’ve been looking for a way to vacuum and mop with one machine. I ended up buying the Bissell Wet Dry vac and for an amazing price! I thought I’d share how you can save money buying certified refurbished on eBay.

You know I’m a loyal eBay customer. Most of my vintage collections (like my Lenox Spice village and Sheila’s Houses) are from eBay since that’s where I can find the best price. I always check eBay for home decor books for my rainbow library because getting them used saves me tons of money.
But I also recently learned about Certified Refurbished products on eBay and I’m so excited to tell you about it!
Just last week I bought my Bissell Wet Dry vac as a certified refurbished item and it came in new packaging, but I definitely didn’t pay the retail price.
What does certified refurbished mean?
If you see a product on eBay’s refurbished page, it means that it has been restored by a professional. The product is inspected, cleaned, and screened to make sure it can be held up to demanding performance standards. Each item then gets an award winning Allstate warranty for 1-2 years.
The benefit is that it because it’s refurbished, the price is up to 50% off! So if you’re on a budget, this is the way to get high quality without paying full price.
If you buy refurbished, eBay backs up their product with a warranty and a money-back guarantee. They only sell refurbished items through verified businesses that are vetted and continuously monitored. The products meets the manufacturer’s specifications so its high quality. The bonus is that this method offers buyers a clever budget-saving alternative.
Another benefit I really like about this shopping option is that it keeps items out of landfills. It’s a more sustainable way to buy great products that’s better for the planet. I genuinely appreciate that.
When I bought my Bissell Wet Dry vac, I ordered it on the refurbished page on eBay. It shipped quickly and then arrived in a new box. I opened it to find all the parts and the owner’s manual. It felt new, but the price was super affordable!
I’ve since used the vacuum a few times and it works like new. If I didn’t know it was refurbished, I’d think it was a new item. I am super impressed and will definitely be shopping for refurbished items on eBay again.
Especially because during the holidays it’s a GREAT way to save money!
