Forget waiting until “black friday”, if you want this deal, you might need to get in much sooner than that.

From today, Coles supermarkets offering the Best Buys are offering the Boost Mobile refurbished Apple devices at special deals, including for the first time a refurbished iPad Mini 4 for $359.

Outside of the sales season, that refurbished iPad will set you back $459, but at $359 it’s a cracking deal going into Christmas.

The iPad mini is an ideal tablet for kids, smaller, more portable but still fully capable.

Coles General Manager for Health and Home Jonathan Torr said Coles was excited about this offer leading into Christmas “Telco is a growing category at Coles, and we’re constantly looking at ways to expand our mobile offer and provide the best value for our customers. Thanks to our partnership with Boost, customers can now pick up a fully refurbished iPad Mini 4 and iPhone 8 while doing their weekly shop – and at great prices. This is a fantastic way we can deliver value for our customers in a more sustainable way.”

As Jonathan mentioned, the iPhone 8 is also available refurbished from Coles, for $279, and as with all Boost refurbished products, comes with a 30 day satisfaction guarantee, and a 12-month warranty.

Boost Mobile Jason Haynes says “Black Friday this year isn’t just about getting a bargain, but also about getting what you actually want for Christmas, while it’s available. We have observed the smartphone market facing unique challenges which we know will concern many of our customers and that’s why we’re so excited to deliver such great offers and promotions on the brands they want.”
