1) Outlet di Amazon

Even if it is an online store, it does not mean that there is not an outlet, i.e. a section dedicated to products sold below cost.

The outlet’s web page is divided into categories: we can in fact find the IT department, the book department and the video game, music, electronics, home and kitchen departments and more. We can find items at really bargain prices, with discounts even exceeding 50% compared to the original price.
If you are not looking for a specific product but something cheap, you can browse the outlet looking for the lowest price you can find on the internet for a television, a blender, an SD card or anything else.

2) Offered by Amazon

If the Outlet is a store of below-cost products that remain on sale until stocks run out, the reference page for those who want to buy at low cost on Amazon is the shopping corner Offers of the day.

The Amazon Offers page offers significant discounts for purchasing defined items that may remain on offer for a day or more.

In the Offers section there are also imperfect products, which may have some scratches or defects, ideal for saving up to half the original price.

3) Bargain corner

Among the numerous hidden sections of Amazon it could not be missed The Amazon bargain cornerwhere we can find many products at really low prices (always under €10).

Most of the products in this section are sold by third-party sellers, so we will have to take into account the possibility of shipping costs (in this case it is better to place a larger order, so as to amortize the final cost).

4) Amazon Renewed

A good way to save is to turn to used but refurbished products, so you can purchase any item that is practically new and certified. This specific page is called on the site Amazon Renewed.

All products managed by Amazon are subjected to strict quality controls, so that each item purchased in the section will be used but resold in excellent condition, practically like new (even if at a much lower price).

This trick can be applied to any category and we can also increase the requested discount by modifying the “A” part of the code (for example &rh=p_8%3A50-100 only shows products with 50% discounts).
