Need second body (D5500): Would you buy refurb or new?

Refurb off BuyDig, the cheapest is $591CDN shipped and taxed.

Brand new off amazon.ca is $735CDN shipped and taxed.

Nikon Canada is very sticky about warranties here, they will not honour gear bought outside of the country over the boarder.

So which would you go with? $140cdn savings to go refurb but no warranty. What's the failure rate on these refurbs?
