Amazon built its reputation on offering great deals for shoppers, and although some people have pointed out that doesn’t necessarily mean you can assume everything on the site is a steal, there are still loads of big discounts out there.
We’ve been exploring Amazon's "Bargain Finds" section, where you can find a diverse, if rather random plethora of crazy-cheap prices on clothing, electronics accessories, kitchenware, watches, and jewelry, along with a seemingly endless profusion of throw pillow cases (pick up a down-alternative pillow insert for $8 to stuff it). How cheap are Amazon’s Bargain Finds? Items sometimes cost as little as $1 or $2.
We’ll add a couple of caveats. Not all Bargain Finds items are Prime-eligible, so keep an eye on shipping charges. (This pair of women's pants, for instance, was only around $3 at the time of writing, but came with a $7 shipping charge.)
Shipping times for these Amazon deals can be decidedly weird too. We noticed some arrival date ranges that either encompassed a span of several weeks, or were weeks in the future, or both. That’s a notable departure from the Amazon shipping experience you’re used to, especially if you are a Prime member.
Also, while there were lots of stellar deals, some Bargain Finds offers seemed overpriced or underwhelming in other ways. Read the fine print and be sure of what you’re buying: Some listings looked like a steal, with images of a bunch of small items, but a careful read showed that you would only receive one of the items in question.
We rounded up the best house and home deals we found for less than $10 at Amazon below. All prices were current as of publication, and are rounded to the nearest dollar, inclusive of shipping.
