You don’t have to be a bargain hunter or extreme couponer to know that the best deals are often found at outlets and clearance stores. But since those retailers typically don’t have e-commerce sites, you have to shop in person to take advantage of their discounts. Well, now you can score major savings without leaving your home or rifling through discount bins: Amazon has a secret virtual overstock outlet filled with tons of deals on home products.
“Bargain shopping can be a lot of fun, and we’ve got it right here, 24-7 in our Outlet Store,” Amazon’s Overstock page reads. “Hunting for a great deal on clearance products and overstocks usually means going to a mall and hitting a lot of stores. At Amazon, we’ve gathered all our markdowns, closeouts, and overstock deals in one place, so you can find just what you want with just a little online shopping.”
Organized by categories, Amazon’s online outlet makes it easy to shop for discounted home essentials. The Home & Furniture outlet and Overstock Deals section are filled with thousands of discounted home products, from furniture to things you never knew you needed, akin to the most exciting clearance bin finds at the store. Case in point: There is a handy over-the-stove adhesive shelf that’s 70% off for only $8. You could use it as a spice rack or to keep your go-to oil, salt, and pepper at arm’s reach when cooking. Thanks to the adhesive backing, it won’t damage your stove or walls and requires no tools to install, so its completely renter-friendly. If you’re the TV dinner kind of person, there’s a two-pack of foldable couch-side TV tray tables discounted 61% off to only $34. They’re made of solid wood and have a 4.7-star rating from over 13,000 reviews, so you know you’re getting your money’s worth.
Some of the best deals can also be found in the Kitchen-specific outlet section—there’s a compact stand mixer only $49 (that’s 40% off!), a highly-rated dry food dispenser for only $17, and even a Vitamix professional-grade blender discounted $153, or 36%, off.
Plus, now that fall is in full swing, there are lots of great finds in the Patio, Lawn & Garden outlet and Outdoor outlet leftover from summer. Now is a great chance to shop for backyard upgrades like outdoor furniture, planter boxes, or a bronze fire pit while prices are discounted upwards of 50% off. Amazon has a tons of extra stock that they’re trying to get rid of right now, and prices for the same product will be more expensive when spring rolls around!
Keep in mind that there are thousands of items in each outlet category (the Home & Furniture outlet alone boasts 400 pages of inventory!), so it can get a bit overwhelming. That said, we went ahead and searched through the multitude of deals available and whittled it down to the very best finds for your home. And if you look closely, you’ll see that some of these are available with a coupon for even more savings. Be sure to check back often, as the products featured in the Amazon Outlet are rotated regularly.

Does Amazon have an online outlet?
Yes, Amazon does have an online outlet. It’s formally known as Amazon Outlet, which is the section of Amazon referenced in this article. In the little-known corner of the site, Amazon sells overstock inventory and clearance products at highly-discounted prices—typically a 20% discount or higher. All product categories are available to shop in the outlet (pending availability), from fashion to home to electronics. Sometimes, the outlet also includes products from premium name brands.
No. While Amazon Outlet sells overstock and clearance items, Amazon Warehouse sells open-box items, refurbished items, and returned items. Amazon Warehouse items are typically priced the most competitively since they are used. Items on Amazon Warehouse are priced based on their quality grade.
