How to Find the Best Deals on Amazon's Hidden Sale Section


The Amazon Outlet is a little known section of Amazon where shoppers can find discounts on overstocked or clearance items across all categories. Shoppers can find deals on just about anything from clothing to beauty to household appliances and pet supplies, and outdoors and automotive items. 

 

Similar to conventional outlet stores, Amazon Outlet also provides deep discounts on thousands of overstock items. For example, you can discover watches from Versace, Fendi and more, as well as dresses from Calvin Klein and BCBGeneration among others on discount. 

 

Sara Skirboll, Fashion & Trends Expert at The Real Deal blog, has some tips for scouring the Amazon Outlet to find the best deals: 

 

  • Search by category: All of the categories are laid out for shoppers to browse and click through. They even have an under $10 category that has a variety of items from kitchen appliances, clothing and even toys and games. 
  • Filter by your own size: The Amazon Outlet has such an abundance of items, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the options. Narrow down the search results and filter by your own size if shopping for shoes, apparel or other similar items.
  • Filter by store, brand, etc. if you’re looking for specific items 
  • Sort by the star ranking: To ensure quality, look at reviews and star rankings. Sara believes that anything over 4-stars is usually a good buy. 
  • Don’t overlook seasonal items: Amazon Outlet allows shoppers to get discounts on everyday items that were overproduced and under sold. Don’t overlook items that are seasonal like Christmas trees or holiday decor, because they work just as well for next year.
  • Use the price filter: This will remove any items above the threshold you want to pay, eliminating temptation to overspend.
  • Check out other retailers: While the products on Amazon Outlet are heavily discounted, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still price compare to ensure you’re getting the best bang for your buck. The product may be discounted across several retailers, and another may have a coupon code or cash back offer making it an even better deal.
  • Act fast: Similar to off-price brick and mortar retailers,  items on sale in the Amazon Outlet are often limited in supply.
