You already know Amazon as the one-stop-shop for basically anything and everything you need on the internet, from workout leggings to patio furniture. But did you know the online retailer's best kept secret spot for savings? It's called Amazon Warehouse, and it boasts the best deals on (pun intended) prime products, like Apple AirPods, Amazon Fire tablets, and Ninja blenders. Not to mention, you can save even more on almost everything in the Amazon Warehouse during their sales events, so make sure you check out the Warehouse page before shopping Amazon's second Prime Day, deemed Prime Big Deal Days.
Here's everything you need to know about Amazon Warehouse:
What is Amazon Warehouse, exactly?
Amazon Warehouse is a section of the Amazon website that "resells millions of like-new, open-box, and pre-owned items that have been returned by customers at a great discount," according to the Amazon Warehouse FAQ page. These once-opened items include products from beloved brands like Apple, Keurig, Ninja, Roku, and of course, Amazon. Many people flock to Amazon Warehouse to find discounted tech products, like Apple AirPods and Amazon Fire tablets, but it's also a great place to score deals on basic household necessities, like Bounty paper towels, Glad trash bags, and Brita water filter replacements.
The best part about Amazon Warehouse? You can rest easy knowing that you're getting the best products at the best price because "all items are inspected and graded using Amazon’s rigorous 20-point quality inspection process," per the Amazon Warehouse FAQ page. Plus, your purchases are Prime-eligible and backed by Amazon’s 30-day return policy.

How does Amazon Warehouse work?
Amazon Warehouse works pretty much like the rest of Amazon (yep, including Prime eligibility!). The main difference is that all items sold on Amazon Warehouse go through a quality check prior to being sold where they are categorized into one of five product conditions: Renewed, Used — Like New, Used — Very Good, Used — Good, Used — Acceptable.
These are the product condition descriptions, according to the Amazon Warehouse FAQ page:
Renewed: "An item that has been inspected and tested by Amazon or an Amazon-qualified performance-managed supplier, to work and look like new. The item has minimal to no signs of wear, or visible cosmetic damages when held from 12 inches away. Product may come repackaged. All accessories will be present, though some may be generic brands. The product comes with the Amazon Renewed Guarantee giving you a replacement or refund within 90 days of purchase if the product does not work as expected."
Used – Like New: "An item in perfect working condition. Original protective wrapping may be missing. The original packaging may have minor damage, or item may come repackaged. Package damage is clearly defined for each item. All accessories are present."
Used – Very Good: "The item has seen limited use and remains in good working condition. Item may show some limited signs of wear with small scratches or cosmetic blemishes. Item may arrive with damaged packaging or be repackaged and could be missing some accessories. Missing accessories are clearly defined for each item."
Used – Good: "The item shows wear, but remains in good working condition. It may be marked, have identifying markings on it, or cosmetic damage. Item may arrive with damaged packaging or be repackaged. Item may be missing some parts, accessories, instruction manuals, or assembly tools."
Used – Acceptable: "The item is fairly worn but continues to function properly. Significant signs of cosmetic damage can include scratches, dents, and worn corners. Item may arrive with damaged packaging or be repackaged. Item may be missing multiple parts, accessories, instruction manuals, or assembly tools."
Is Amazon Warehouse safe and reliable?
Yes! Not only does Amazon inspect every product using its "rigorous 20-point quality inspection process," but it also grades each item according to the aforementioned product conditions so you know exactly what you're getting. But to be extra safe, it's best to only purchase items that are labeled "Fulfilled by Amazon." That way, you're not dealing with third-party sellers who may not have the best customer service if problems arise.
Plus, if you're unhappy with your item or run into any issues with it, Amazon Warehouse "offers free replacements within 30 days from purchase when there is a product with the same listing condition available in our inventory," according to the Amazon Warehouse FAQ page. It's worth noting, though, that due to the unique nature of each used product, Amazon Warehouse may not have similar conditions available. That said, customers can return any item within 30 days of receipt (up to 90 days for Renewed items) for a full refund.
Also, it's important to know, per the Amazon Warehouse FAQ page, that used products generally don't come with a manufacturer's warranty. If that's a must-have for you, you may be better off shopping at traditional Amazon.
