Buying a used iPhone 6s no longer requires meeting some shady dude off Craigslist in a Starbucks parking lot.

Apple is selling used iPhones on its online refurbished gear store for the first time ever, bringing big discounts to last year’s models.

Customers can get a refurbished 16GB iPhone 6s for just $450. You can’t even buy a new 16GB iPhone 6s anymore, but the refurb price is $100 cheaper than the 32GB iPhone 6s.

The 16GB iPhone 6s Plus is also available for $530. Getting a refurbished 64GB iPhone 6s Plus will only cost you $590. Other variants are also available at a 15 percent discount.

Other iPhone models like the iPhone SE and iPhone 6 are not available on Apple’s refurbished site. The company could add them later, though, so keep an eye on Apple’s special deals.

Refurbished iPhone units come with the same one-year warranty as a brand new iPhone. Units are given a new battery and outer shell so they look and work like new. The box for certified refurbished iPhones sold by Apple also contains a charging cable, user guide and EarPods.
