Get a refurbished Apple iPhone 7 at a big discount from Woot while you can

Get a refurbished Apple iPhone 7 at a big discount from Woot while you can
While Apple unceremoniously pulled the plug on the iPhone X just one year after releasing the company's first "all-screen" handset with Face ID recognition, the venerable iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are still sold through the official online store of the Cupertino-based tech giant... at arguably excessive starting prices of $449 and $569 respectively.

Of course, third-party retailers like Walmart and carriers like AT&T have been gracious enough to offer some pretty incredible discounts on the two 2016-released iOS 12-running devices over the past few months, and for 24 hours only, Woot is doing the same as far as the smaller variant goes. The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 can be had in exchange for a measly $219.99 today in a 32GB GSM unlocked model.

If 32 gigs of local digital hoarding room doesn't sound enough to hold all your precious stuff (seeing as how you obviously don't get a microSD card slot as well), a 128 gig GSM unlocked iPhone 7 is on sale at the time of this writing for just 40 extra bucks. These are very reasonable prices for refurbished handsets backed by 90-day seller warranties, although you shouldn't expect them to look quite as good as brand-new units.

That's because Amazon subsidiary Woot is selling them in "Scratch & Dent" condition, meaning "minor cosmetic blemishes" will be part of the deal, along with "surface scratches on the screen", which won't "impair the use" of the heavily discounted devices in any significant way.

Interestingly, it seems these special offers are proving quite popular, with unlocked 128GB units supporting both GSM and CDMA networks already listed as out of stock as we publish this piece. The same goes for the 32GB GSM unlocked iPhone 7 in black, which means you can only pick up that version in rose gold or choose between black and rose gold 128 gig GSM unlocked models. If you hurry, that is.
