Almost all of my shopping for electronics is done with retailers using their open-box pricing on items. I have seriously gotten some of the best deals because of the prices on those items (and the fact that even chain stores are not standard in their pricing of those items). One of my favorite was about 10 years or so ago when I bought an open-box Philips laptop (they really did use to make them and this one was really nice!). It was super slim and pretty decked out for a 12″ laptop. It ended up costing only $200 (down from $2,000!) because the backlight was out. I bought it and called Philips and they paid for shipping both ways to replace it and send me a new one – even when I showed them the receipt! Not bad!
Extra 10% Off Amazon Warehouse Deals – Select Categories
Anyway, I have a lot of those stories! Some of them have come from the Amazon Warehouse Deals which has a lot of great stuff from time to time. And now, you can get an extra 10% off items in these categories:
- Clothing & Accessories – Additional 10% off
- Select Luggage, Handbags, and Travel Gear
Now, the extra discount is only available on items sold by Warehouse Deals, so make sure you filter that on the lower left side of the screen (or just pay attention who you are buying the item from). I have been through a fair amount of stuff looking around and there are some pretty good deals – including some nice deals on Tumi bags. I have seen some Tumi Alpha 2 International carry-on bags for $250 after the 10% discount! The condition on these were Very Good, so that means nothing to make you regret the purchase.
I have found items to be quite fluid through here so if there is something you want, quickly throw it in your cart. The other night, I grabbed the last of 10 MacBook Pro Retina 15″ laptops that were available – and they had gone fast! It was such a great deal that I will actually be able to make a little money selling my 13″ MBP Retina!
I have seen a fair amount of quality tablets available for sale in there as well as some great deals on cameras and lenses. If you are in the market for any of those things, check it out! If you don’t see something you want, just keep checking back as the stock changes regularly.
