Post of The Month (September)

Maisy is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey Shaunie,

​I care. I really relate to what you have been experiencing with the house falling apart, and things not getting fixed due to general shame of the state of the house and not knowing where to begin fixing things or who to contact (you don't want to come across rogue tradesmen). Not even having adequate heating and hot water. And clutter. Everywhere. It's horrible to live in such circumstances, I know. It's hard as well when you see everyone else living a 'normal' life and yet being unable to talk about your situation."

  • What is 'Grade A Refurbished'

    For christmas I've asked my mum for a digital camera, and don't have a clue which ones are good or not. However, I have the opportunity to buy a Nikon Coolpix S7 for 95 (RRP 170) 'Grade A Refurbished' through ebuyer.co.uk. As far as I'm aware this means it's 'as new' but doesn't have the extended manufacturers warranty and so on. The camera shouldn't be more than 100, and just needs to take nice photos. Would be good if it was good in low-light, because I do take photos whilst going out. In fact, the cheaper the better really, it's just to get photos onto my HDD. I do enjoy photograhy and always end up taking millions of photos, so I was considering something like this:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fuji-FinePix...7569284&sr=1-6

    but of course I've got no chance of taking that out with me. Any recommendations? Does the nikon coolpix sound like a good deal? My friend who is amatuer but-will-be-professional-one-day photographer says it's a great camera at a great price... but the 'refurbished' sticker is a bit scary.

    Good question to ask on refurbished stuff is what's the guarentee like.

      Refurbished means it's been handed back as faulty and repaired, then resold. The grade A doesn't mean anything.

      I know there was a guide somehwere. It was something like:

      Grade A: identical to new product
      Grade B: possibly signs of wear, documentation may be missing
      Grade C: damaged in some way but still operates properly

      Last time I bought something refurbished it was broken. Physically. But this is quite a good deal.

        Ah, I thought "grade A" was a cyinical marketing ploy.

        That's right, Grade A means identical to new including packaging and warranty etc.

        Usually bulk Grade A items are things that are recalled for fault button etc so they redo the whole batch but have to classify them as refurbs then

          depending where you are buying from - it can mean both the above.
          Good judgement comes from experience.
          Experience comes from bad judgement.

            I doubt that there will be a legal definition of "grade a" so basically it'll boil down to the policy of the sellers.

            Standard legal covers will apply to the sale though, fit for purpose etc..
