As part of the UK's Prime Day deals, Amazon is running a sale on its Warehouse range of goods – for Prime Day only, you can save a flat 20% on everything tagged in its Warehouse (that is, used and refurbished goods), as long as you're a Prime member.
But what's in there? Not every saving is a winner, honestly, but it's well worth browsing to see what's made the cut.
The range of items covers everything from electronics to toys, and gardening equipment to shoes. Amazon describes the product range as 'selected', and while it's true you won't find many big ticket items in the majority of categories, it's worth having a look anyway.
What does Amazon Warehouse mean? Amazon characterizes it as 'open-box and used' products – so refurbished items, basically, the quality of which Amazon will tell you about before you add it to your basket. You'll see signs like 'Used - Very Good' and 'Used - Like New' on each item to help inform your buying decision.
You need to reach checkout in order to see the 20% discount on each item, which makes browsing for prices a bit of a pain. So far, we've seen products like the Xbox Elite Series 2 controller, Blue Yeti microphones and appliances like kettles and vacuum cleaners discounted. But stock levels are low, so the line-up is likely to shift as items sell out. Amazon cautions to "check back often and order quickly" if you see something you want.
To try and make your life easier, below we've collected quick links to a few of our favorite items on sale, and explain how their discounts compare to buying the items brand new so you can see if it's worth it.
