If you were crossing your fingers for discounts on the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer this Black Friday, you would have, once again, been disappointed when shopping directly from the brand or any of the big retailers. The cult dryer has stubbornly remained at full price ever since its launch in 2016.
However, this year eBay has come to our aid, putting out its own Cyber Monday Dyson hairdryer deal. You can now get a Supersonic for just £189.99 – if you shop refurbished. This equates to £110 off the full price and 20% (an extra £50 off) the usual refurb cost. We’ve never seen reductions on this dryer before, ever, so we’re very happy to spot this. These are the kinds of Black Friday deals we were hoping for in 2021.
What does refurbished mean?
We’re big proponents of shopping refurbished at Good Housekeeping. Our team at the GHI says that this label doesn’t mean you’re buying used or second hand items. In fact, when it comes to tech, ‘refurbished’ simply means that the device has been returned to the manufacturer or retailer by the original customer.
From the Institute: “This could be because something is missing, such as a remote control, or there was a fault with the item. In some cases, the customer may have changed their mind or decided it doesn’t fit with their lifestyle or home.”
Once it’s been sent back, the retailers will check and test the returned items before listing them on their website. In cases where the device was faulty, the parts are replaced. For example, a smartphone may have a new battery or case, while a laptop may have been given a new hard drive – then it’s ready to be resold with a great discount.
There’s no difference with this Dyson hairdryer. Ebay assures us that “products sold on the Certified Refurbished hub go through a vetting process to ensure that they are top quality and the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is no different.
“The hairdryer is available in pristine, like-new condition and has been professionally inspected, refurbished and packaged by Dyson. All certified refurbished items on eBay also come with a 12 month warranty so you can shop refurb with confidence this Cyber Monday.”
Well, that all sounds very good to us.
Dyson Supersonic hairdryer Black Friday sale
You will have heard of the cult Supersonic dryer before, with its iconic ringed design and powerful airflow. In our GHI tests, the panel reported that using the Dyson helped to minimise their frizz and made their hair feel smoother. A majority of testers thought the hair dryer felt well balanced in their hands during use and was not too hot, all while drying their hair very quickly.
You can shop this hairdryer with its hefty discount here on eBay. Do be quick, though, as this deal is on for today ONLY and we’re expecting a sellout. As for us? We’re looking forward to our resulting perfect tresses for the festive party season.Internet Explorer Channel Network
