And let's not forget the other draw: saving money. You can save big on some must-have tech goodies right now at Woot! and Amazon just in time for Earth Day. Shop our picks below and help do your part to keep our one and only planet in the best shape it can be.

Best refurbished earbuds

Why we like it

The Beats Fit Pro(opens in a new tab) may be some of the best wireless earbuds on the market, and according to Mashable reviewer Alex Perry, "Apple's best wireless earbuds yet." They offer "excellent active noise cancellation, magnificent audio output, elite comfort, and a long-lasting battery," Perry said in his review. At this price, they're an absolute steal, especially if you're looking for earbuds that manage to stay in your ears a bit better than the AirPods Pro. The refurbished model may have a few scratches here and there, but the only difference from buying new that you should notice will be cosmetic.

Best refurbished tablet

Why we like it

The Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet(opens in a new tab) is one of the retailer's best, and it comes boasting a speedy processor and a beefy 12-hour battery life. It has a 10.1-inch touchscreen that's perfect for reading, watching your favorite shows, and playing games, all with onboard Alexa compatibility. Plus, it includes expandable storage should you need additional space. Amazon's refurbished model is the 2021 release and was fully tested and charged before being listed for purchase, complete with updated software.

Best refurbished earbuds

Why we like it

The Apple Watch Series 6(opens in a new tab) may not be the latest and greatest Apple's line of wearables has to offer, but it's still a capable smartwatch. Call, text, and use a variety of apps straight from your wrist. The watch's always-on Retina display is bright and clear, and it's always ready to display the info you need. Plus, this model includes ECG capabilities as well as a swath of health and fitness tracking features to help you be the best you that you can be. Woot! says these watches have been fully restored and may have "minor cosmetic blemishes", but that's nothing a case or a new watch band can't fix.
