Amazon Prime Day is in full flow, but Amazon Warehouse Prime Day deals are often overlooked. That's a mistake because Prime members can get an extra 30% off on some already decent deals on pre-owned, reconditioned tech for creatives.

Amazon Warehouse is the online retailer's name for deals on pre-owned, used and open-box products. Yeah, I know; I'm also hesitant about buying secondhand tech or even never unsealed tech, but I've found over the years that Amazon Warehouse does a pretty good job at ensuring that many products look and function as if they were new.

The challenge is that Amazon Warehouse deals can be very random, so it takes a little looking around to find something worthwhile. But hidden in plain sight, the best Amazon Warehouse deals are often the cheapest way to buy many tech items – including sometimes very new open box products that may have only just been released – take these AirPods 2 reduced to reduced to $50 (with the Prime discount).

Read on for everything you need to know about Amazon Warehouse plus my pick of the best Prime Day Amazon Warehouse deals (these are all one-off deals, so the exact deal will probably be gone by the time you read this.

What is Amazon Warehouse?

Amazon Warehouse is a section of the Amazon online store that offers savings of up to 50% on pre-owned and open-box products. These bargains are products that are often still in good condition but can't be classed as 'new' since they've either been used or at least their boxes have been opened. 

Amazon checks each item and uses a series of descriptions to define its condition: 'like new', 'very good', 'good' and 'acceptable'. The products usually come in their original packaging, they're eligible for Prime delivery and are covered by the usual 30-day return policy. You can read about the Amazon Warehouse terms for full details.

How can I find Amazon Warehouse Prime Day deals?

The best Amazon Warehouse deals are unpredictable. They come and go quickly with only limited numbers available because these are generally items that people have returned unwanted, usually because they ordered the wrong item, because the item wasn't what they expected or because it was the wrong size or didn't meet their requirements. That means that the offers are often one-offs.
