The purse strings can get a bit tight at this time of year but if you need a new phone then this particular deal is a corker. Samsung is offering the brand new Galaxy Buds 2 headphones free with selected Re-Newed Galaxy smartphones.

Not only can you save up to $550 on a phone, but you’ll also get the $149 wireless earbuds for free. And you can choose any of the four colours they come in. The Galaxy Buds 2 scored a respectable 4/5 in our recent review.

Apart from the colourful design, the Galaxy Buds 2 offer a lightweight and compact design. There’s also solid sound quality, active noise cancelling and the charging case comes with wireless charging as standard.

“The Galaxy Buds 2 are a capable addition to Samsung’s headphone range, and are probably the best pair for most people, and a sensible default for anyone also buying a Samsung phone or smartwatch” said Deputy Editor, Dominic Preston.

Buying a refurbished is not only a great way to get a phone, but also sav money and prevent electronic waste. Samsung says that reusing a phone saves at least 121lbs of CO2 emissions, equal to what two and a half trees capture in a year.

These Re-Newed handset have been certified by Samsung and go through a refurbishment process to make them like-new. Only genuine Samsung parts are used, a new battery is installed, and must pass a 132-point quality inspection at Samsung’s facility.

You can save up to 30%, pay for them with monthly payment options and you still get a one-year warranty in case something goes wrong. That’s the same as brand new devices.

Sounds good? The deal is available until 31 December on selected handsets: Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 Ultra, S10, S10+, Note10, or Note10+. You might even get the phone for nothing if you have a device to trade-in.
