What are Amazon Warehouse Deals?
Amazon Warehouse Deals is a program to offer deals on Amazon customer returns, slightly damaged products, used, open box or lost but now found inventory. These items do not meet Amazon's requirements to sell as new so they sell at a discount under the Amazon Warehouse Deals seller account.
Amazon performs a 20-point quality inspection process before listing the product on Amazon Warehouse Deals. These items are Prime-eligible for Amazon Prime members and include their standard 30 day customer return policy.
Where do Amazon Warehouse Deals Come From?
When an Amazon seller sells an item on Amazon using Amazon FBA and the customer returns the item back to Amazon, the item goes through a customer return inspection process by the FBA warehouse employees. If the item is determined to qualify, the item will be re-purchased by Amazon from the Amazon seller and sold on the Amazon marketplace under the Amazon Warehouse Deals seller account. The seller will find the details of this transaction in their "reimbursement" report.
Amazon Warehouse Deals products come from the following situations:
- Amazon customer returns inside a FBA warehouse
- Lost products inside a FBA warehouse
- Damaged products inside a FBA warehouse
- Abandoned products inside a FBA warehouse
- Products selected to "destroy" by the seller inside a FBA warehouse
Deeply Discounted Amazon Deals
The main reason Amazon Warehouse Deals is attractive is because you can find nearly new, open box or just slightly damaged items at a deep discount from their original price.
As they say, "The moment you drive the new car off the dealer lot, it's a used car".
This idea is true with buying products off the retail shelf. The item you buy is only new for a brief moment and then it's...used. So why not save a few bucks buying an item slightly used from Amazon Warehouse Deals.
The discounts at Amazon Warehouse Deals can range from 10% to 80% off their original retail price. The main factors in determining how deep the discount are the condition of the item, any missing items in the package and supply vs demand forces.
