We all know that Amazon is a great place for hunting the lowest prices anywhere for a particular product. But did you know you can get even more savings if you look through Amazon Warehouse Deals as well?
If you don't mind used, refurbished, open-box, warehouse-damaged, and returned goods, then Amazon Warehouse Deals is your ticket for big, big discounts.
Warehouse Deals sell markdowns of everything from computers, TVs, a whole range of electronic and home appliances, cellphones, and even used books, video games, DVDs/Blu-Rays, CDs, and vinyl records.
If you're worried about the state the items are in, don't worry, Amazon Warehouse Deals strictly adhere to Amazon's General Condition Guidelines and provide each Warehouse Deal item's condition on its information page.
Conditions range from "Refurbished," "Like New," "Very Good," all the way down to "Acceptable" and the information even includes notes on what defects or blemishes to expect on a particular item.
For your added peace of mind, Amazon claims that they "thoroughly test the functional and physical condition of each item and give the product a specific grade before selling it."
They are also completely backed by Amazon's return policy so you can always ship back an item within the return timeframe window if you are not satisfied. Additionally, all Warehouse Deals qualify for Amazon Prime or FREE Shipping.
Before you dive into the wonderful world of Amazon Warehouse Deals, there are a few caveats to keep in mind.
- Since the items are considered "used," they do not come with the standard manufacturer's warranty. If you want protection for an item, you will have to rely on third-party companies like Square Trade.
- Also, prices and availability of the products are always in flux. Since Warehouse Deals rely on pre-owned or warehouse damaged goods, they can't predict future inventory and Amazon advises deal hunters to "check back often and order quickly."
How to check for Amazon Warehouse Deals
To check if there are any Warehouse Deals available for an item, go to the product's Amazon page and click on the "Used & new" section. In this section, look for the seller "Amazon Warehouse Deals" (the items are always marked as Prime-eligible) and check if there are any "Used" or "Refurbished" prices that are within your price range.
Another way to browse for general Warehouse Deals items is by visiting the main Amazon Warehouse Deals Storefront.
