If you didn't know about the Amazon overstock store, you're one of many. In fact, we're convinced Amazon wants to keep it a beloved, insider-only secret, but we're happy to spill the beans because deals this good deserve their moment in the spotlight. Just like any other shopping event—Amazon Prime Day, holiday shopping, and more—the warehouse sale is organized into categories, but we're going to focus on the home-centric ones, like kitchen and dining, wall art, and bedding. If none of those speak to you, there are 12 other categories that may strike your fancy.
Yes, Amazon does have an online outlet formally and appropriately known as Amazon Outlet. We, however, like to call it the overstock store because that's kind of what it is: all of the goods that started full price, ended up in clearance, and now are on the fast track to becoming free. In the little-known corner of the site, Amazon sells overstock inventory and clearance products at highly-discounted prices—typically a 20% discount or higher. All product categories are available to shop in the outlet (pending availability), from fashion to home to electronics. Sometimes, the outlet also includes products from premium name brands.
No. While Amazon Outlet sells overstock and clearance items, Amazon Warehouse sells open-box, refurbished, and recently returned items. Amazon Warehouse products are typically priced the most competitively since they happen to be used rather than new. Anything you'll find on Amazon Warehouse is priced based on the quality grade. To learn more about Amazon Warehouse and Amazon's grading system for used products, we break it down here.
Here's how the Amazon overstock store works: You don't have to be a bargain hunter or extreme couponer to know that the best deals are often found at outlets and clearance stores. But since those retailers typically don't have e-commerce sites, you have to shop in person to take advantage of their discounts. Well, now you can score major savings without leaving your home or rifling through discount bins.
Keep in mind that there are thousands of items in each outlet category (the Home & Furniture outlet alone boasts 400 pages of inventory!), so it can get a bit overwhelming. That said, we went ahead and searched through the multitude of deals available and whittled it down to the very best finds for your home. And if you look closely, you'll see that some of these are available with a coupon to score even more savings. Be sure to check back often, as the products featured in the Amazon Outlet are rotated regularly.
