Who doesn't love a sale? The best bargain hunters are always on the lookout for deals, and with Amazon Prime Day happening right now it's time to save big. Seasonal sales a shopper's delight, and savvy shoppers know that the very best deals are often found at outlet stores. But since outlets typically don't have e-commerce sites, shoppers must trek to an in-person storefront to secure those coveted double-digit discounts. Well, we just discovered an exciting secret: Amazon has a secret virtual overstock outlet, and it is filled with tons of amazing deals on home decor, beauty products, footwear like walking shoes and supportive sandals, and more. At last, you can score major savings from the comfort of your home without rifling through countless discount bins.
“Bargain shopping can be a lot of fun, and we’ve got it right here, 24-7 in our Outlet Store,” Amazon's Overstock page reads. “Hunting for a great deal on clearance products and overstocks usually means going to a mall and hitting a lot of stores. At Amazon, we’ve gathered all our markdowns, closeouts, and overstock deals in one place, so you can find just what you want with just a little online shopping.”
Organized by categories, Amazon’s online outlet makes it easy to sort through their massive amounts of inventory. We were so excited to find a great selection of supportive walking shoes and walking sandals within the Shoes & Bags section (there’s lots of luggage in there, too).
The Home & Furniture outlet and Overstock Deals section are filled with hundreds of discounted home products that run the gamut from soap dispensers to mattresses, and everything in between. If you’re lucky, you might even find a viral product you’ve been eyeballing in the Amazon Outlet. For example, the TikTok-famous water-filtering shower head is a whopping 42% off right now. More of the best home deals can also be found in the Kitchen-specific outlet section—there’s a compact stand mixer for $40 (that’s almost 50% off) or a 16-pack of reusable food storage bags for under $16.
Keep in mind that there are thousands of items in each outlet category (the Home & Furniture outlet alone boasts 328 pages of inventory!), so it can still get a bit overwhelming despite the helpful categories. That said, we went ahead and searched through the multitude of deals and narrowed things down to the very best finds available right now. Amazon Outlet inventory get rotated regularly, so just like a clearance bin at the outlet mall, these deals won’t last for long.

Does Amazon have an outlet?
Yes! Amazon has an online outlet store formally known as the Amazon Outlet. 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.
How do I search Amazon Outlet?
Because there’s so much inventory, the best way to shop Amazon Outlet is to have something in mind, and then look for that specific type of item. To search the Outlet, navigate to amazon.com/outlet and type your desired item in the usual search bar at the top of your window (Amazon will automatically limit the results to those in the outlet if you start from the Outlet home page). Or, to shop by category, navigate to the same page and scroll down to the middle of the page where you will find a list of every section of the outlet.
Is Amazon Outlet the same as Amazon Warehouse?
No. While Amazon Outlet sells overstock and clearance items, Amazon Warehouse sells open-box items, refurbished items, and returned items. Amazon Warehouse items are typically priced the most competitively since they are used. Items on Amazon Warehouse are priced based on their quality grade.
