With Black Friday coming up, I wanted to remind readers again that Amazon Warehouse is still around. The discount section isn’t new, but it’s often overlooked when shopping online. You’ll find thousands of Amazon Warehouse deals everyday, with low prices backed with an excellent return policy. Amazon Warehouse is basically an Amazon Outlet, offering pre-owned, refurbished, and open-box products, often with incredible savings. If you’re new to Amazon Warehouse, you should bookmark the site for the upcoming shopping season, because there will be millions of items up for grabs over the next two months. Amazon Warehouse and Amazon Renewed go hand-in-hand, and both are backed with satisfaction guarantees.
Amazon’s description of Amazon Renewed reads, “At Amazon Renewed, you can discover and buy pre-owned, refurbished and open-box products that have been professionally inspected and tested to work and look like new by Amazon-qualified and performance-managed suppliers.” The company added, “The inspection and testing process typically includes a full diagnostic test, replacement of any defective parts, and a thorough cleaning process carried out by the supplier, or by Amazon. The products have no visible cosmetic imperfections when held 12 inches away. The products may be packaged in a generic box and come with the accessories expected for a new product, with exceptions, if any, mentioned on the product detail page.”
You can find thousands of Amazon Renewed products in the Amazon Warehouse, and this includes electronics, tools, appliances, games, and sports equipment. Tools is a great category to shop in (let’s face it, it doesn’t matter if a screwdriver or hammer is out of the box), and you can usually find great deals on office products and kitchen accessories. If you’re shopping for big-ticket items like electronics, TVs, headphones, tablets, or laptops, you might worry more, but that’s when the return policy comes in.
The Amazon Renewed Return policy is one of the best in the business, and far better than most outlet stores. The official policy reads, “Products on Amazon Renewed are backed by the Amazon Renewed Guarantee. With this guarantee, you are eligible for a replacement or refund within 90 days of receiving the product if it does not work as expected. This guarantee is in conjunction with Amazon’s standard return policy that applies to most products.”
Amazon Warehouse comes with a few challenges, but nothing that a thrifty shopper hasn’t tackled before. The stock is always changing, and there’s often a limited supply of each model. You might not get the exact color smartphone case you wanted, or you get the 6qt InstantPot instead of the 4qt InstantPot, but those are the small restrictions that you deal with when shopping at a discount. You might have to return to the site a few times if you’re looking for a specific item or brand, which is why I recommend that you bookmark the site. Those are basically the only downsides, other than that, shopping on the Amazon Warehouse is just as easy as shopping on Amazon.
From camping gear to extra chairs and plates for a holiday party, you can find thousands of items on Amazon Warehouse, and it’s a great way to save money. If you don’t find what you need, be sure to double check the Deal of the Day and Black Friday Countdown sections this year. Amazon made things a little easier by offering quick links to popular categories, so you can spend less time searching, and more time saving.
