Is the Refurbished Nintendo Switch a Good Choice?

Hmm, this is a good question, but not one that’s very simple to answer, we’ll have to take a deeper dive to really answer this.

So I’m guessing you want a Nintendo Switch, but don’t want to pay the full price for one. And the good news is, there’s no reason to pay full price! There are so many ways out there to save money on a Nintendo Switch, and all that you really need to do is make sure you buy one that’s in great shape.

Why a Refurbished Switch is Better Than a Used Switch

When it comes to buying a used or refurbished Nintendo Switch, you shouldn’t just think about getting the best deal. We all want to save money, but there’s no point in saving a ton if the console doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to. We’ve all bought those used products that seem to be in great shape at the time of purchase, but then a few days or maybe even a few weeks later we notice that something is just a little off. Yup, I’ve had the feeling before, and I know it isn’t a fun one. And that’s the last thing you want to happen if you’re buying a used Nintendo Switch. This is why we recommend buying a refurbished Nintendo Switch. Most refurbished Switches never actually had any problems or required any fixing to be done, so don’t think you're buying a Frankenstein product that had to be opened up and totally re-engineered to get it working again after some horrific tragedy. What makes refurbished cool is the fact that it’s just like buying used, except you’re getting a 1-year warranty and 30-day money-back guarantee with the product (at least that’s what you’ll get if you shop at Back Market).

And you know what’s even cooler? That money that you’re saving by buying a refurbished Switch as opposed to a new one, you can spend on video games… and who doesn’t love video games? Yeah, that sounds like a much better deal… After all, what good is a Nintendo Switch if you don’t have any video games to go with it?

A Refurbished Switch is Just As Good as a New One

Another important note: a refurbished Nintendo Switch will be just as reliable as a new one. Here at Back Market, we’re so sure about the quality of our products that we literally think we’re better than new. Just look up some of our reviews on YouTube, you’ll see a ton of people getting great looking MacBooks and iPhones for half the price of new ones. So what are you waiting for, shoo your boredom away with a refurbished Nintendo Switch from Back Market :)
