Best Buy to begin selling slightly used iPhones at discount

Given the amount of electronic waste piling up around the world, this sounds like a very good thing: Best Buy says starting today, it’s going to sell gently used and refurbished iPhones at a discount in its mobile stores.

The devices are ones that were returned to stores within 30 days of purchase. They’ll sell for about $50 cheaper than new versions ($149 for 8GB and $249 for 16GB).

Best Buy says the iPhones are in “like-new operating condition.” They’ll come with a one-year warranty.
