The only catch is that Amazon does not always make it easy to find these discounted offers. So you have to learn what to look for. In fact, sometimes it can be so difficult to figure out if an item you want to buy is available through Amazon Warehouse, and it almost looks as though Amazon is deliberately hiding it.
That's why I'm helping you find your way Explore the labyrinth of Amazon offerings and learn how to drill down to find the best deal. Once you've mastered this hack, you'll never want to pay the full retail price for an Amazon item.

How to Find Specific Articles from Amazon Warehouse
If you shop like me, I know exactly what I'm looking for in 99% of the time. If you already have something in mind, but want to check for a discounted Amazon Warehouse option, you've come to the right place.
First, go to the item you usually want to buy from Amazon, but do not put it in your cart yet. Browse the page and keep your eyes open for words like "New & Used", http://www.cnet.com/ "Buy Used", "New & Used" or simply "Used".
Normally, a price is also listed that represents the cheapest option available (but excluding taxes and shipping costs). If you can not find the link, use your browser's search function (usually Control-F on Windows and Command-F on Macs) to search for these keywords.
When you find the link, you are looking for items that have "Amazon Warehouse" listed as a seller and an Amazon Prime logo near the price. If more than one item is in stock in Amazon Warehouse, sometimes a separate list is displayed for each item, especially if the items are in a different state.
Why Amazon Warehouse Items Are So Cheap
Like other major retailers such as Walmart or Target, Amazon accepts many customer returns that it can no longer sell as new. Regardless of why the buyer returned the item or if it was opened at all.
That's why everything Amazon Warehouse sells is used as needed, even though the product itself has never been touched. Whatever their condition, used things are simply worth less – sometimes even less. And that's good for you.
What should I do if I get a lemon?
Of the dozens (if not hundreds) of Amazon Warehouse offerings I've purchased over the years, I've always had them with only a handful of problems – a Bluetooth adapter for my car that accidentally shut down, a wireless one Router, which did not emit a signal, a very worn puppy harness to which dog hair stuck; such things.
