Here’s How to Get Up to 70% Off Amazon Orders
Amazon is by far the most popular e-commerce platform in the world – and it has grown considerably as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, with more Americans (and shoppers in other parts of the world) using its services than ever before.
However, the vast majority of purchases are made without utilizing this great shopping hack, so shoppers around the world are missing out on a huge amount of potential savings.
This shopping hack is actually quite simple: instead of browsing standard listings, you simply head over to a section called “Amazon Warehouse Deals.” It should be noted that all the products in this section are technically used, but the vast majority still work perfectly fine.
Furthermore, for some reason, it’s pretty tricky to get onto this section of their website and it’s really easy to navigate away from it back to the normal, more expensive listings.
The Easy Way to Browse These Deals
The simplest and easiest way to browse these discounted deals is to first head over to your local Amazon homepage, and then search “Amazon warehouse”.
This will take you to a page only containing their discounted products, which you can narrow down by category (such as apparel or tech) or by simply searching for a specific product that you’re after.
However, you should keep in mind that you’re likely to land the most heavily discounted deals if you’re not looking for something specific to buy and are instead just looking for a gift or a general type of product (not a particular brand or model.)
Another thing to note is that, even if you access the Amazon Warehouse Deals homepage and begin your online shopping journey there, you are likely to still come across some non-discounted products in the form of “sponsored listings.”
You can either simply ignore these listings or download a dedicated ad blocker, such as the Amazon Ad Blocker Chrome extension, which removes these listings.
Another Way to Find Specific Products
If you’re trying to find a specific product on Amazon, there’s another way which allows you to easily check if you can save a bundle of cash by purchasing it from the discounted section of their website.
Simply find the product you want to buy as you normally would and scroll down the listing page until you see the same product for sale from other sellers (they’ll usually be arranged in a table with headings like “Buy Used” and “Used.”)
If the product is available on the other section of Amazon we discussed, one of the options in this table should have “Amazon Warehouse” as the seller and an Amazon Prime logo next to it. You can then click on this listing and see how much it costs including shipping and any taxes you need to pay.
Why Are These Products So Cheap?
Just like any other physical or online retailer, Amazon gets its fair share of returns – and it sometimes can’t resell them as new, so, instead of binning them and taking a loss, they sell them as “used” at a discounted price.
Depending on the type of product and its condition, the discount will be reasonably small or very substantial (up to 70 percent in some cases.)
Even if you’re someone who usually prefers not to buy used products, it’s nevertheless still worth giving this shopping hack a go, as there are some true gems listed in this section of Amazon.
And, even if you do end up with a faulty product, you can return it to Amazon for a full refund or instead get a replacement, so you don’t need to worry about risking your hard earned cash on something that’s not fit for purpose.
A Quick Summary
- You can purchase a wide variety of products from a section of the Amazon website or app that only features used and often heavily discounted items.
- Be wary of accidentally navigating back to standard product listings (if you click on a sponsored listing, for example.)
- In some cases, you can get products that are in perfectly good working order for up to 70 percent off their original price.
- If you end up with a faulty product, you can send it back for a full refund or a replacement.
