Amazon Outlet: Where to Find Hot (and Cheap) Overstock Deals Online

You don’t have to be that old to remember the excitement of “outlet stores” – hitting up special malls (or even entire cities – Freeport, Maine, anyone?) for deals on excess, returned or sometimes separated product inventory. It makes sense that the nation’s largest online retailer, Amazon.com, is playing this game with its own outlet — minus the bricks and mortar (and attendant candy and fudge vendors).

As millions of Americans have signed up for Amazon Prime, weigh the benefits of Amazon Prime’s perks – (both the new or both new and those being removed) against the recent increase in the price of Amazon Prime. membership – Amazon Outlet is probably a reason to stay.

They’re not used or used, and some are even quite high-end (think Apple, Bose, Marmot and Pendleton). Amazon Outlet items are true overstock – Amazon has bought too many – discontinued items or just plain old clearance items. And they went through a retail strip. That means you’ll see clothing, kitchenware, home decor, electronics, and other areas.

We’ve found great deals in Amazon Outlet that you might be interested in. Otherwise, there are many more. Here is what we discovered:

  • Under Premium Brands, a women’s Chelsea Marmot waterproof down jacket was selling for $342.92, down from $380 previously. A Pendleton men’s long sleeve shirt was on sale for $55.48, down 38% from $89.50.
  • In the Kitchen Outlet, we spotted a Mickey Mouse waffle maker for $26.75, a 33% saving from $39.99. A Bella personal-sized Rocket Blender was 40% off, at $17.99, down from $29.99.

  • And the point-of-sale savings don’t stop there. In electronics, we opted for the Bose Soundlink wireless headphones which regularly retailed for $229, but in retail they were $179.
