Baby items are pricey and only used for a limited time, which is likely why many parents turn to the secondhand market. The problem is when you buy a used SNOO from Facebook Marketplace, eBay, or even from a local parent, there are a lot of unknowns! Is the used SNOO in good working condition? Has the secondhand SNOO been thoroughly cleaned? Is the person selling the used SNOO near me trustworthy?

Fortunately, Happiest Baby is putting all these questions and worries to rest with our Certified Pre-Loved SNOO Smart Sleeper! When you go with a Certified Pre-Loved SNOO Smart Sleepers you know that in addition to the safety and sleep-boosting benefits of SNOO, you’re also getting the peace of mind knowing that your used SNOO is in like-new condition, has been fully sanitized, and has been rigorously checked for quality and safety.

What are the risks of purchasing a used SNOO from Facebook, Craigslist, or another unauthorized seller?

When you buy a Pre-Loved SNOO through Happiest Baby, there’s zero risk, thanks to our 1-year warranty and the Happiest Baby guarantee that your bassinet has been thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, and inspected for safety and functionality. However, purchasing a secondhand SNOO from any other seller is a big gamble. That’s because…

There is no warranty on used SNOOs bought off Facebook, Craigslist, etc.

With most sellers, if your secondhand SNOO doesn’t work properly, you don’t have any recourse. That’s because, no matter what a seller might tell you, SNOO warranties are non-transferable. On the other hand, if your Certified Pre-Loved SNOO needs to be replaced or repaired, you’ve got a 1-year warranty to help ensure that it happens.

Facebook and Craigslist used SNOOs aren’t sanitized.

Babies spit up, their diapers leak—and all of that happens in SNOO. So, when you buy a used SNOO from a stranger, you’re buying all of those germs and grime—plus, dust, dirt, and potential pet hair, smoke, and even bed bugs, too. But remember, all Certified Pre-Loved SNOOs are professionally cleaned and sanitized before being sent to a new family. Plus, you get all new soft goods, as well!

There are unknowns with a Craigslist or eBay used SNOO.

When you’re buying a used SNOO off eBay, Facebook, Nextdoor, or another seller, there’s no way to know for sure if there are any hidden damages or if SNOO has been stolen. Only Certified Pre-Loved SNOOs are 100% certified safe, clean, and in perfect working condition.

Unauthorized secondhand SNOO sales are vulnerable to scams.

Buying a used SNOO on Facebook Marketplace, eBay, or another secondhand seller can be risky business, thanks in part to scammers who try to sell stolen rental SNOOs. Since all stolen SNOOs are disabled, unsuspecting parents wind up out of money and out of a fully functioning SNOO. Plus, a report from ProPublica found that Facebook Marketplace rarely stops scams before they happen, often missing obvious red flags such as hacked accounts and suspiciously low-priced items.

Is it better to rent SNOO or buy a Certified Pre-Loved SNOO?

When deciding between renting SNOO or buying a Certified Pre-Loved SNOO, it’s a good idea to consider your space, your budget, and whether you might use your SNOO for more babies down the road.

Buying a used SNOO might be your best option if you…

  • Are hoping to pass the bassinet onto siblings

  • Have the room to store SNOO between babies

  • Don’t want to deal with the logistics of making a return

Renting SNOO might be your best option if you…

  • Are looking for flexibility

  • Don’t have space to store SNOO

  • Are only planning to use for one baby
