MARTIN Lewis’ MoneySavingExpert has explained how to find secret Amazon bargains – and you can get nearly 40% off your haul.
In its weekly newsletter, the consumer website said shoppers can head to Amazon Warehouse to get big discounts on their shopping.
Amazon Warehouse is where the online retailer sells items that have been returned by customers for a discounted price.
These products are inspected by Amazon before being relisted – and it means shoppers can get big price items at lower prices.
But because the items have been sold before, they may have already been used so you should be aware that there may be some signs of wear and tear.
Some bits might even be missing from your purchase – you should read the product description to check if this is the case for your item.
Amazon will give it's products listed on this website a rating depending on what condition the item is in.
These four labels are:
- Used – Like New: this means it's in "“perfect working condition”, Amazon says
- Used – Very Good: this means your item has not been used very much and fully functions
- Used – Good: Your item may have already been used moderately, but is fully functioning
- Used – Acceptable: The item will have “clear signs of usage”, Amazon says, but still works
You can find the Amazon Warehouse website by clicking on Amazon's normal website, and in the search bar, click on the left-hand side tab which says "All" and scroll down until you hit "Amazon Warehouse".
One savvy saver told MoneySavingExpert that they had saved £90 on a pressure washer buying it on Amazon Warehouse instead of from rival retailers.
However, before you splash out, make sure you compare prices online as you may find that the same item – or something similar – is cheaper elsewhere.
Be aware that there's limited stock on all of Amazon Warehouse's items – it depends on what has been sent in, so you're not guaranteed to find exactly what you're looking for.
Some items may also be in short supply, or be snapped up quickly by savvy shoppers.
We spotted that some items were nearly 40% less than what other retailers were selling them for on the Amazon Warehouse website.
Here's a couple of the best bargains we spotted:
