amazon warehouse deals discount

We all love a good deal and if someone tells you can save a lot of money on online shopping, you are certainly going to listen. Today, most people do not want to go to a store for their purchases-they may be busy, have agoraphobia or mobility issues or they may be simply living in Maine in February!

Regardless, there are hundreds of thousands of Americans who do not find going to store a simple task. Therefore the ability to buy and shop online is a life-saving blessing for them.

Combine this with the fact that one can use Amazon Warehouse Deals and likely end up paying half of what their local store is asking; it’s a one-two win for everyone. In today’s guide, I am going to tell you how to find Amazon warehouse deals and get the best deals and find the best discounted and clearance products on Amazon.

What is an Amazon Warehouse Deal?

An Amazon Warehouse Deal helps you find deep discounts on open-box or near expiration date products.

These items are offered in limited categories and usually can be availed for items like TVs, laptops, home décor, kitchen & dining items, outdoor stuff etc. The reason why Amazon.com offers these Warehouse items is because they are refurbished, returned, warehouse damaged and not in as good a condition that qualifies for the Amazon “new” standards.

So Amazon Warehouse Deal is very much a part of the Amazon.com offering with a view to helping customers snag great discounts.

Before we move on to ways of finding discounted products on Amazon and learning more about Warehouse deals, there are some terms to familiarize yourselves with.

Amazon Product Conditions and Grades

What does it mean when it says open box on Amazon Warehouse Deals?

Open box items are consist of open box returned goods. These are the items returned by other customers. However, instead of being returned to the manufacturer, Amazon inspects them and resells them at a discounted price.

What are different Grades on Amazon Warehouse?

Here are some other Amazon Warehouse grades along with their explanations:

  • Like New - A Like New item is an item that looks as if it has just been taken out of its shrink wrap. It has no signs of visible damage and appears flawless and intact. A Like New product on Amazon Warehouse deals is an apparently untouched item in perfect condition. The item and/or its packing ideally has no signs of wear on it.
  • Very Good - This grade of items on Amazon Warehouse covers items with slight blemishes and damage. The item might have some parts missing and the original packaging may be replaced owing to damage.
  • Very Good - This grade of items on Amazon Warehouse covers items with slight blemishes and damage. The item might have some parts missing and the original packaging may be replaced owing to damage.
  • Good - This grade of goods on Amazon Warehouse deals consists of items with large scale cosmetic damage. These items often need to be repackaged for better protection or because the original packaging has been completely damaged. Such items may also have accessories or parts missing.
  • Acceptable - Amazon Warehouse items that are marked as Acceptable usually have scratches, dents and other larger scale cosmetic problems. The accessories and manuals could be missing and the items need to be repackaged to replace the original. Third party attachments could be used to replace the missing parts.

How To Find Amazon Warehouse Deals? - Big Discounts on Amazon Every Day

You can save hundreds of thousands of dollars on everyday items on Amazon. Amazon offers many discounts in basically every category you can think of. I have enlisted the categories later on in this article.

Apart from Warehouse Deals, you can also use Coupons, Outlet deals, Open Box & Used deals, Lightening deals, Today’s’ deals, Digital Deals and Woot! Deals. For getting these deals you need to first log in to your Amazon account. Here is a gist of ways to find best discounted products and clearance items on Amazon:

Coupons

Once you have logged into your Amazon account, click on the coupons section to find Coupons by category. There are nearly hundreds of coupons you can avail in different categories like Beauty, Pet Supplies, Office and School Supplies, Home & Kitchen, Automotive & Industrial, Electronics, Lawn & Outdoor Tools and Toys & Baby.

  • Make sure you scroll through the entire list of coupons for each category. Often, many pages are available and you cannot see all coupons on the first page itself.
  • Most coupons on Amazon reset monthly and can be used only once per account. Once you have clipped a coupon, it remains in your account and automatically becomes active at checkout when you buy a qualifying product. You can then see the discount you have received at checkout.

Subscribe & Save

Subscribe and Save works pretty much the same way as it sounds - when you subscribe to an item you need regularly, you end up saving tons of money. Amazon then arranges to ship the subscribed item to you at regular intervals. You can get up to 15% off as well as free shipping. Some tips:

  • Be sure to cancel Subscribe & Save if you do not want the items to keep coming any longer. Also Subscribe & Save locks an item for delivery but it does not lock in its price. To manage your subscriptions, just go to your account, choose the Manage Subscriptions option and cancel the subscription you no longer need.
  • Items that are eligible for Subscribe and Save have a blue box near them. You can also click the Subscribe button on right hand side.

Amazon Prime Deals

You can avail Amazon Prime membership by paying just $99 per year and can cancel this any time. This has many sub categories for further deals and discounts.

For example, there is the Family Deal where Amazon prime members can avail many family centric discounts on diapers and other family oriented items. You can also avail Prime Student deals and get free fast shipping. You can also watch TV shows and latest movies on Prime. Students can benefit on deals for textbooks, notebooks, school and dormitory supplies etc.

  • If you do not want to avail an annual membership, you can go in for stocking up heavily on the items you need in the free trial period.
  • Students need to be enrolled in an University and have a valid .edu mail id for availing these discounts.

Deal of the Day and Lightening Deals

These are another popular category of top deals on Amazon. Every day, Amazon comes up with Lightening Deals on items in various categories. These deals run for a couple of hours or until the item is sold out. Lightening deals are listed on top of the Amazon page. Be sure you also check the deal of the day.

Discount Gift Cards

Amazon sells discounted gift cards for many brick and mortar stores and for Amazon itself. If you are planning a major purchase at any of these stores, simply  buy the gift card at a discounted price and use it for shopping.
