Not to be that guy... But to be that guy - Apple refurbished direct seems to still be superior to these options and prices.
And it’s really refurbished when it comes from Apple. I also struggle with Woot’s “down from” new price comparison for a used item that doesn’t have the warranty coverage Apple has. End of rant. We now return to our regular unsolicited opinions.

Woot refurbs != Apple refurbs in terms of quality. Ordered my wife an iPhone SE from them a few months ago and it was in horrible shape. Nicks and scuffs everywhere and the camera lens was so scratched every picture looked foggy. Buy at your own risk.

You cannot currently purchase the 2018 Pro refurbished, direct from Apple.

I (very hesitantly) bought a “open box new” IPad Pro 2018 from woot last week, for the same price. Supposedly the iPad is in new condition, with the original box and a generic charger and cable. It is supposed to be arriving today. Based on shipping information, it looks like it comes from buyspry.com. A google search looks like it a 50/50 shot, based on reviews. I don’t think I would buy a “refurbished “ model from them

Enjoy your dead battery. I learned the hard way about Woot. I was stupid and ignored everyone else's advice here. Learn from my bad experience and don't lose your money.
That’s what I’m worried about. I’m trying to be optimistic, but based on reviews it’s hard to be. I’ve never ordered from Woot, and don’t know anyone who has. I’ve read returns are a nightmare to nonexistent

Um... these are $549 directly from Apple.
I’m not sure if your Apple store is different from mine, but the only thing listed on Apples refurbs is an IPad Air 64 Gb for 419.

iven been keeping an eye on their site hoping to get a 2018 Pro but they haven’t had any

I think Apple is way too competitive here. Like Anything with Apple, you’re less likely to have with a refurbished model than you would a new one, being that they are stringently tested. I’m not knocking Woot by any means, but the ‘safer bet’ is direct through Apple, especially when the prices are fairly comparative.

Wow. Good to know.
That wasn't a refurb, that was a Scratch and Dent. Woot sells both categories of devices and the listings clearly diliniate the two. Always skip the S&D listings.

I picked up a 11" Pro 256GB Cellular+Wifi last October for 701, and it arrived looking brand new. Not a single flaw inside or out, and battery tested brand new so either this thing wasn't used, or it was refurbished as claimed. That said, that was a great deal, whereas this is not. Maybe for a 2020 Pro, but not a 2018.

You know those telco trade in deals were they give you a $300 credit for your device?

This is how they make money, by selling it for more than they paid you for it.

I have bought several products from Apple's refurb store because I am confident in the condition. I am not sure I would be comfortable buying used/refurbed from anyone else.

With that said, a 2018 iPad Pro is still a better iPad than the new Air and it's priced the same. Might be a good time for someone who is looking at the Air to look at the Woot deal if they're comfortable.

Apple refurbs are effectively new devices in a white refurb box (you can't tell the difference from new). Woot refurbs are just used phones with a 3rd party warranty.

I am just updating my post, my purchase WAS NOT from this listing. My purchase was from a listing one week ago that was for a new open box iPad Pro 2018.
I received it today, and to my surprise I open the package, and it is a 2020 iPad Pro. The box clearly has a sticker for a 2018 iPad Pro. I do not know if they sent me the wrong item by mistake or if the listing itself was wrong.
Either way I am super happy. The tablet is brand new. Not a mark or a scratch on it. I got the original charger the original cable and inserts. I checked the serial number to the box and the box and iPad serial number match. A 256 GB 2020 IPad for 700.
My original intent was only to purchase it as I was going to get the new air model but the listing was $50 cheaper than a new air model and I would have been more than happy with the 2018 chipset. But knowing that I have the newest model is awesome. My regret is completely out the window.

This is in no way an endorsement for a Woot, and I would never buy a refurbished item from them. I was extremely hesitant on buying the open box item, but in this case it looks like I won the Woot lottery

mate only problem now, is that I already purchased a smart keyboard off of eBay for 30 bucks, but it was for the 2018 model
