Coles and Boost Mobile are continuing their refurbished mobile device deals with a refreshed range of iPhone 8s going on sale at Coles Supermarkets from next week at just $279.

As we’ve covered before, these devices come packaged in a Boost Mobile box, with a Boost Mobile SIM card for your to activate if you choose, a charging brick and cable so you’re good to go right out of the box.

Every single one has been through a detailed check to ensure it all functions well, and is in the best condition. They are a great value option for those who need a replacement phone or – with School going back, perhaps your first phone.

The $279 price is a solid reduction on the price offered on the same phone just a year ago at Coles.

Coles will also be selling Boost’s refurbished iPhone XR for $499, both are special deals for a limited time only.

Phones purchased at Coles as part of the Boost Mobile program are unlocked and can be used on any telco, but you’d be mad not to take the included Boost Mobile SIM stater pack for a test drive with $10 off a $30 recharge, and Boost operates on the full Telstra Network so you’re covered – literally.

Oh, and the refurbished phones come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, and a 12 month warranty!

Boost’s Jason Haynes says “We know that smartphones are a very common talking point for families as they prepare to send kids to school, and refurbished iPhones continue to prove extremely popular with parents and kids alike. If a family decides it is time for their child to have a phone to keep them safe and in contact, we are proud to be able to deliver Aussie families great value handsets and data plans on the biggest network,”

Next week (Jan 26), Coles – you might need to get in quick.
