Flip.ro, a Romanian start-up that encourages circular economy by refurbishing smartphones which they reintroduce on the market in pristine condition, are getting ready for this year’s Black Friday, the greatest sales event of the year, with sustainable solutions. Flip.ro’s Black Friday campaign will take place between the 10th and the 13th of November.
This year, Flip.ro expects to double last year’s sales.
The offers available this Black Friday on Flip.ro include:
- iPhone SE (1st generation) at just 99 RON;
- iPhone 7, at prices starting from 449 RON;
- iPhone XR, starting from 999 RON (a discount of 500 lei);
- iPhone 11, from 1599 RON (a discount of 340 lei);
- Samsung Galaxy S21, at 2599 RON (a discount of 600 lei).
Among the smartphones refurbished at the highest industry standards, there will be plenty of other iPhone models, as well as phones from brands such as Samsung, Xiaomi or Huawei, including many others.
“Based on a study we ordered, we already know that a third of Romanians are waiting for Black Friday to buy a new phone, the annual event being popular thanks to the considerable discounts, but also because, we think, Romanians are starting to be more careful about their spendings. Flip.ro responds to these needs throughout the year, not with new phones, but with popular models on the Romanian market that look like and are just as good as new at competitive prices, and even more so on Black Friday, when we have the biggest discounts of the year. Last year, best-seller models were sold-out in the first hours of the campaign, a sign that Romanians appreciate refurbished phones as a smart solution for their pockets, so this year we will double the number of available models on the website, up to 10.000.”, declares Alex Burghelia, co-founder of Flip.ro.
Smartphones refurbished by Flip.ro also come with benefits such as:
- an extended warranty of 24 months, just as the new models;
- 30 days return window;
- free shipping, including EasyBox;
- Content check upon arrival.
During 2021’s Black Friday campaign, Flip.ro sold refurbished smartphones for a total of over 1.3 million EUR, with an average of 1.700 RON per order. Buyers spent, on average, under 5 minutes on the platform, meaning that the offers had been followed ahead of time. This year, the platform helps clients with a dedicated landing page, flip.ro/abonare-black-friday, where they can sign in and be the first to know about available offers and the exact launch of the campaign.
