Usually at least 40% off for me. Refurbs tend to have a lesser warranty, hence it better come with a lesser price too.

@narfcake: I agree, I find refurbs are often a great price in comparison to what they used to cost, but with how technology changes, you can often get something better for a little bit more, or even less in some cases. A refurb needs to be much cheaper than a new comparable item for it to be worth it to me.

The refurb price depends on the popularity of the particular item. If the costs are close I opt for the new item.

Refurb should be at least 25% off the lowest retail price. Even if it comes with a new warranty. Also, if it is refurb through anyone other than the manufacturer directly, it should be at least 35% off.

Depends on the actual cost. For a high-ticket item, maybe 20%. For something really cheap, maybe 50% or more.

40%-50% off MSRP, except for specific items that are manufacturer refurbs that have warranties equal to new items.

40-50% is what works for me. Willing to consider lesser discounts for refurbs and/or floor models if original warranty is maintained.

It really depends on what the item is and who its from.

I recently got a kindle fire from amazon refurbed for like 30% off and thought that was a good deal. Of course amazon has a very good return policy and warranty and it came in perfect condition.
