Just one so far.

Cheaper. Example. I needed an iPhone to test some app but not as my primary phone. I went refurb.

Buying refurbs from Apple directly also gives you warranty

It's another benefit, should you decide to purchase a refurb directly from Apple. A full year, new replacement screen & battery AFAIK.

Solely the price

In reply to: What are the benefits of buying refurbished phones?

You will get them at a way better price, but in most cases, refurbished phones are older models which soon enough will be pretty much outdated. Personally, I wouldn't opt for this.
