AirPods Max Controller to Xbox Series X: Shop for in-store display items and save up to 45%

This story is part of 2021 Holiday Gift Guide, our list of ideas, by theme, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the ideal gift.

Supply chain issues mean many retailers struggle to keep shelves stocked for the holidays. With shortages affecting the whole world, Black Friday sales might not be as hot as they used to be. One thing that is not that hard hit is the aftermarket. So if you are shopping for gifts this year, consider buying them second-hand. Like a Abt Electronics, where you can find up to 45% off open items, returns or display items. This LG sound bar costs only $ 148 (reg. $ 277), just like this Garmin Vivoactive 4S. Free shipping is available on most items.

Long before I was concerned about the environment, I was concerned about my wallet. This is why I have always bought new electronics. You can get the latest and greatest at a greatly reduced price, and you don’t have to worry about boring packaging that ends up in a landfill. Best of all, most refurbished items will go through an actual inspection before they are shipped to your door. All of Abt’s output items have been fully inspected by its technicians. They also come with a full manufacturer’s warranty and free returns.

Here are some of the best deals I picked out, but be sure to check out the catalog yourself. Be sure to click on the view and return options for the lowest price and check if your purchase qualifies for free shipping.

With top-notch sound, adaptive noise cancellation and the ability to take advantage of Apple Spatial audio virtual surround sound make it a must-have for Apple users. Our reviewer’s main complaint was the price, but now you can get them for $ 100 less than a new pair.

Since there’s only one controller that comes with the Xbox Series X and S, you’ll probably want at least one more for playing with friends and family. But why pay full price for a backup controller that you end up gifting your little brother on Thanksgiving? Now get $ 12 off this rarely discounted controller.
