What Are 2nds?
Seconds are nearly new items that are otherwise complete and fully functional.
Most seconds are customer returns or are cosmetically flawed items discovered during inspection of a production lot. In general, a second is equivalent to the new product in its functionality and will be impossible to distinguish from new by its performance in the field.
Seconds may be ...
• Cosmetically imperfect products with small scratches, blemishes, dents, or dings.
• Customer returned goods or display models that show some evidence of use or wear.
• Optical products with small scratches or blemishes on optics that do not impact optical performance noticeably.
• Products that are repaired in a way that returns full functionality and that is cosmetically reasonable.
• Products equipped with one or more substitute parts or accessories of comparable value and utility to the original, usually to replace a missing or broken part or accessory on a returned item.
• Some seconds may be older versions of a product that do not include newly added features, functionality, or accessories.
• Other included items are not always the same between a new item and a second. Seconds are not subject to any promotions that may apply to regular catalog merchandise.
Note: We cannot provide information about the specific nature of the flaw for an individual item.
