Deal: Groupon Selling Manufacturer Refurbished Chromecast Dongles for $25

Google_Chromecast__Refurbished__Deal_of_the_Day___Groupon

Still don’t own a Chromecast? Come on, why not? Here is your chance to pick one up for $10 under the retail price of $35, priced at just $25 through Groupon. Units are labeled as manufacturer refurbished, coupled with a one-year warranty from Google, so you need not worry if it breaks down on you. 

The Chromecast was one of our favorite little accessory releases from last year, allowing owners to cast videos straight from their phones and computers to the big screen TV in their living room.

Seriously, if you don’t own one, give it a try.

Cheers Brandon!

    Nothing Bryan Mills loves more than a cheap dong.

    Can you Chromecast a live Youtube feed? Edit: If you can does it do 1080p?

  • Chris Hughes

    There isn’t much to a Chromecast. What could they possibly refurbish?

    Also…a Chromecast is what…35 bucks? How much cheaper does it need to be before people just buy one from Google.

    • jimt

      It must be returns, or open boxes or operator error or bad wifi or slow phone. They could not have actually done anything to them. If they work, they work like most electronics. If they are heat sensitive or intermittent that should show up quickly and you get a new one.

    I’ve recently found this awesome app, it helped us so much, while we were travelling around the French Riviera, check it out!

    Not worth saving $10 IMO. I bought one on Sunday finally at Staples. Used a 20% off coupon, it was $30 out the door.

  • Chris

    Or if I wanted one I’ll just go down to the store and buy it. Then I’ll have it the same day.. M

  • Sean Walton

    Just get it from Google. Chromecast is so cheap you don’t need to get a refurbished one, you are not saving hundreds.

  • jim

    You tube crashes a lot when I use mine

  • John

    If you can’t afford the extra $10 on a $35 device and decide to go through with the hassle that is Groupon, you probably shouldn’t be playing with these toys to begin with.

    • jimt

      Some people like the rush of getting stuff cheaper than the next guy.

      • John

        The rush comes from getting new stuff cheaper than the next guy. It’s refurbished. It’s supposed to be cheaper. Believe me I look for the best deals on new stuff and am extremely happy when I find it. Save money from buying refurb? Not so much.

        • jimt

          I don’t disagree with you, I was just offering the rush as a possible reason.

  • Eric Meadow

    25 bucks, .95 for shipping, and i got an extra 10 dollars off for some reason… so $15.95 for a chromecast? Okay, seemsgood.jpg

    • Brian Cohen

      how did you get an extra $10 off!?!?

      • Eric Meadow

        i…. i dont know ._. it said something like “groupon special discount” while i was checking out.

  • Gr8Ray

    I got one of mine a few months ago for $27 with free 2 day on Amazon Prime. And it was brand new. Why would anyone pay this much for a refurb?

  • Justin Kos

    Dongle is a funny word

    • Mech_Engr_09

      Yeah, I was gonna post the exact same comment because every time I read the word dongle I laugh just a little on the inside.

  • moelsen8

    who the hell would return a chromecast!? crazy.

    • Mech_Engr_09

      People that say, ” wow anything I stream on this sucks because it stutters every minute for 5 seconds.”

      • Suicide_Note

        I’d say those people need a better internet connection.

        • Mech_Engr_09

          No the internet is fine. I didn’t return mine, but when I’m trying to stream a movie from my phone to the chromecast, it skips. I have no other problems with any other devices.

          • Justin Kos

            weird, mine works flawlessly

          • Mech_Engr_09

            are you just doing a direct screen mirror or are you using an app to cast?

          • Justin Kos

            The option in the Netflix app, the screen cast button on my n5 is behind a few seconds

          • jimt

            It probably helps to have a good phone, casting from an OG droid might not be too good assuming it could actually do that.

          • moelsen8

            well i hear you there. can barely ever get a video to play on my tv using allcast. sucks because that’s such an incredible feature.

          • jimt

            The movie is too high of a resolution. Casting 1080p is tough if not impossible from the phone.

    • Gr8Ray

      People who want a wired ethernet connection, people who want 5ghz wifi support, people who hate pixelation and stuttering…

      • Justin Kos

        I have a media center PC with a TV attached to it, I was the minority to google during the chromecast keynote, I got one for my parents. Netflix looks great and it works just fine. I told them it didnt have 5 Ghz support and they looked at me like I was speaking chineese haha

  • FortitudineVincimus

    I bought one brand new in box unopened for $20 off good old Craigslist.

    • koopadoop

      That $15 dollar discount might not make up for the potential of getting stabbed or the likely possibility of it being a stolen item.

      • FortitudineVincimus

        It being stolen is not my concern really. And that is a heck of a jump to say “likely possibility”. Likely? According to whom?

        You have to be weak sauce to stab or get stabbed for a $20 item… especially in my hood. I am a CL pro, I know what I am doing…. if you are that concerned, best you stay back and let the big boys play.

        • koopadoop

          You sound just… awful…

          • FortitudineVincimus

            You sound… pathetically weak and scared of the world

          • koopadoop

            Yes, damn my ethics of not wanting to commit theft by receiving!

          • Bryan Mills

            Gotta watch out for the white thugs

          • Mech_Engr_09

            Gimme all ur money!

          • FortitudineVincimus

            Once again.. perpetuating the fact that it just must be theft because (1) it is on CL and (2) it is cheaper than retail.

            Once cannot vet the veracity of every single deal on CL, or life, but funny how you have tried and convicted it as bad already. Truly ignorant comments.

          • JayMars84

            Agreed. WTF is he talking about?

          • Mech_Engr_09

            *fart noise*

        • Mech_Engr_09

          Yeah, I’ve gotten some sweet deals from craigslist. Full setup for 55 gallon fish tank, included $400 filter, lights, driftwood, stand, etc only $150. The guy just didn’t want it anymore and just wanted some cash. Awesome deal and awesome site if you use it right.

          • FortitudineVincimus

            If you are not a total tard and know how to sense people, research prices, where to met, how to handle yourself, what questions to ask, etc… CL is awesome and nothing to worry about. I have bought and sold literally 10’s of thousands of dollars of stuff on CL. I do it weekly. But, I know what I am doing.

          • Mech_Engr_09

            It’s not a bad place to look for a phone either. I got my G2 a while back for a great price because the person didn’t like it. Traded them straight up for the moto x 16 gb

          • FortitudineVincimus

            I have also bought and sold phones I no longer liked or my wifes old phone. I even picked up her SGS5 off it as she busted hers and buying new or buying slightly used for 50% less… no brainer.

          • Justin Kos

            I did that for my nexus 5, there are alot of people out there like me that just like trying new phones out n such

          • Christopher Moore

            I traded my iPhone 5s 16gig for a week old Note 3 with case; straight up trade. Without Craigslist I would have had to sell my iPhone and then buy the Note 3. Ebay would have taken fees and I would have paid more to buy the Note 3; very time consuming actions.
            Thank goodness for Craigslist!

          • Justin Kos

            I got a 2006 Kawasaki ZZR600 motorcycle 3 years ago, 1200 miles (aka brand new) $2750. Can’t beat that Sh!t

          • JayMars84

            “Psst….psst…yo I got dem Chromecasts son!”

          • Christopher Moore

            Even today that’s a sweet price on a ZZR600.

      • Mech_Engr_09

        You forgot rape. I picture him walking into some creepy, desolated house and handing over a 20 to some guy that looks like Nosferatu haha.

        • FortitudineVincimus

          The funny thing on that deal was.. the guy showed up, at the 7-11 in public like agreed, in a new Porsche Cayenne, all clean cut and nerdy and the deal was done in 37 seconds with no drama…. he was just a tech guy that bought a few for his certainly pimp house and had 1 extra – so I grabbed it. I even Googled his name and he was who be claimed. Boy, was that a scary close call of a CL deal. Terrifying.

      • Justin Kos

        Im a big fan of CL, im still alive with just a little common sense. If your not confident, bring a friend.

      • Christopher Moore

        I always use Craigslist. I got my first Android phone (Droid OG) off Craigslist and is the reason why I’m typing this out right now. I’ve sold and bought video game systems, tablets, exercise equipment, clothes, computers, phones and I even bought my last car 2 years ago.
        Unless you got robbed don’t talk bad about it. Can’t live in a state of fear your entire life. If you have a fear of getting robbed/raped go to a police station. Not a uncommon meeting place.

  • https://www.heartbleedbug.com/ Intellectua1

    $25+shipping and handling+the wait =Should’ve just bought a new one

    • koopadoop

      Yeah I’m not sure how this is a good deal, + Groupon is evil and hated by the businesses who used them.

      • hfoster52

        But they are still in business and people use them.

    • Tony Byatt

      I’m seeing free shipping…But I still wouldn’t bite…

      Brand new maybe…

    • morgan boyle

      $1.50 extra in taxes is OK. but forget the wait.
