For online shoppers searching for very low prices who also don't mind if the merchandise is in slightly used condition, Amazon has a website full of great deals. Warehouse Deals by Amazon was started in 2004 as an Amazon.com subsidiary with the same benefits of "Fulfillment by Amazon" distribution, service guarantee and customer-service support.

Warehouse Deals by Amazon is just like any other merchant page on the Amazon website. However, it offers "open-box" products at deep discounts. The merchandise inventory includes products that have been returned, were warehouse damaged or refurbished. Because of this, there is no guarantee that a particular item will be in stock, as the inventory changes regularly.

Product Condition Policy

Amazon inspects the condition of the products to make sure they are functional. The physical condition may have small cosmetic blemishes, such as a small scuff, scrape or ding. Amazon labels the product conditions into four categories: New, Like New, Very Good or Good.

Products in "New" condition have never been removed from the packaging, although the package may have some slight damage. "Like New" products may have been removed from the package but are still in perfect condition. Or, the outer packaging has been damaged in some way. Items that have been used, have small cosmetic damage or missing accessories but are otherwise functional, are deemed as "Very Good" condition. If the item is functional but has a large amount of cosmetic damage, missing accessories or has been repackaged, it is labelled as "Good" condition.

Returns Exchanges and Shipping

Warehouse Deals has the same return policy as Amazon.com and is determined by the type of merchandise. In general, if you are unsatisfied with your merchandise, you can return it in its original condition within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. If the error originated with Amazon, they will pay the return shipping costs. Always read through the return policy details before making a purchase, as they are subject to change.

Product Warranties

Amazon offers the "SquareTrade Warranty for Open-Box Electronics" that covers 100 per cent of the parts and labour with no deductibles if the product cannot be fixed. The merchandise must be valued between £130 and £1,300. The warranty lasts for one year and coverage begins on Day 31 after the date of purchase. It does not cover parts and accessories that should be replaced by the customer, accidental damage from drops or spills or software problems. The current price for the warranty is £29.20.
