Use These Hacks Before Doing ANY Amazon Shopping!

by Shelli Stein

I know, you think you’re a savvy consumer and well-versed in pricing items on Amazon. We all think we’re smart shopping ninjas! Especially on Amazon Prime Day.

Not all deals, whether they be travel deals we find on sites like Google Flights or deals on Amazon Prime Day, are as great as they seem.

How do we really know what’s a normal price and what’s a discounted price?

Put your crystal ball aside and use this tool to hack prices instead!

For FREE you can get price histories on items selling on Amazon.

Don’t let these year-round ‘Prime Day’ savings fall under your radar!

We’re in the final hours of this year’s Prime Day sale from online retail giant Amazon. It ends tonight at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.

But before you rush to buy the same deals as everyone else, there are two places you should check first.

First, Amazon Renewed sells used products refurbished by Amazon. Items include high-demand electronics like smartphones, computers, TVs, and tablets, along with appliances and tools for the kitchen, home, lawn, and office. Each listing includes a description of the refurbished item’s condition and comes with at least a 90-day return or replacement period (up to one year for items in “premium” condition).

For even deeper discounts, check out Amazon Warehouse. It sells fully functional but non-refurbished items for up to 50% off retail prices. Even better, select Warehouse items get an extra 20% discount for Prime Day. These used items, typically things that customers decided to return, have a similar four-tiered grading system: Like New, Very Good, Good, and Acceptable.

Whenever you’re buying something that doesn’t have to be perfect, check on the “New & Used” box on the listing page. Just make sure you choose one that shows “Ships from” and “Sold by Amazon Warehouse” to qualify for Amazon’s 30-day return policy.

Also, keep an eye out for Renewed or Warehouse versions of your wished-for items in the coming weeks, too, as those Prime Day returns start trickling in.

There you have it. No recommended items to share but better yet, a site that helps you shop with confidence knowing that you’re really getting a deal!

Camel just checks Amazon and is unreliable. Use ShopSavvy since it checks every retailer like Walmart, Best Buy etc – not just Amazon. Amazon rarely has the best price or deal.

While I’m not a fan of Capital One, you can use their browser plugin and it will search for better prices when shopping on Amazon.
