Amazon Outlet


There’s nothing more irresistible than a good sale. Amazon offers its Prime Day event for shoppers to score on deals, but it’s also introduced something lesser-known that offers reduced prices all year round: Amazon Outlet.

Outlet offers thousands of discounted items in just about every category you can think of For the hardcore deal hunter, check out the Super Discounts section, which offers a whole lot of things under $10. We can’t promise that all of it is useful (there is, for instance, a twerking bear), but deal hunters know you have to sift through a lot of trash to find a treasure sometimes.

You can also go gawk at their Best Sellers section, which is more of a reflection on the weirdness of human beings than anything else. What we learned today: people really do use Dieter’s Tea, still read about 9/11,  and fill their phones cases with flower petals.

Overstock is also a genuine issue for Amazon. We have no idea how it possibly keeps all of the zillions of orders they get every minute in line, but like every other retailer, they need a way to clear out stuff they have too much of. We found some of the best deals here of all the sections, including last-gen Kindles, cute baby clothes, and anti-aging skincare.

Like you needed another reason to buy too much stuff on Amazon, right?
