More Cheap Refurbished Nooks Starting at $45

Nook GlowLight Plus

A couple days ago I posted about the latest Nook Glowlight 3 being available for cheap from a seller at Amazon with certified refurbished units selling for $79.

It turns out the same Nook is also selling for $79 with free shipping on eBay from a seller called Big Deals, a top seller with a feedback score of 98.5% with over 300k positive ratings.

Their $79 Nook Glowlight 3 is listed as “New other”, meaning it could be open box, customer returns, or b-stock with minor defects.

Big Deals also has a couple of earlier Nook models available for cheap, both are listed as manufacturer refurbished.

The Nook Glowlight is selling for $44.99 with free shipping. It was Barnes and Noble’s second frontlit model, the 4th gen Nook overall.

But the better deal is probably the Nook Glowlight Plus for $55.99 with free shipping. It was the previous Nook before the Glowlight 3. It has a more premium design with a flush glass front and metal back. It’s also waterproof and dustproof and it has a 300 ppi E Ink Carta screen with a frontlight, so overall not bad for $56.

The crazy thing is it says they’ve sold 4,620 of the Glowlight Plus. Why such a high number for open-box refurbished Nooks?

  1. Nook Glowlight Plus has been buggy and not working properly since software updated to match the new Glowlight 3. I do not recommend it. The home button does not even take you home anymore it turns the backlight on and off lol

    More cheap? Cheaper. Cheaper nooks starting at….

    • More like additional cheap Nooks. It’s a reference to the previous article a couple days earlier about a refurbished Nook for cheap.

  3. The Nook is a mighty machine and destined to be a classic. The Kindle is still the byword in the public’s mind for ereaders, but the Nook is the real deal. The Kindle is a closed ecology but you can hack the Nook till you’re blue in the face. There is a way to even get sound out of it! It also has an SD card slot, which has been fazed out by many companies as it allows too much freedom for the consumer. I have almost 5,000 books on mine.

    • Actually none of these Nooks have memory card slots. B&N phased them out 5 years ago. Also hacking has majorly tapered off with the newer models. Welcome to 2018. 😀
