As people know Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer, who began as a book seller but has been growing in an speedy way that nowadays offer a variety of products and digital media. This popular firm was founded in 1995 by Jeff Bezos and is still one of the most important companies throughout the world.

While studying warehouses in class, I remembered I visited Amazon warehouse in Tennessee and I have always think about what do they do with the returned products, do they sell them, donate them or throw them away. That is why I take a look for its warehouse and I found there have a service called Amazon Warehouse Deals, which is part of the group but is in charge of offering great deals on returned, warehouse-damaged, used or refurbished products that are in good conditions but do not suit to the high and strict standards of the firm.

AWDAmazon Warehouse Deals offer products such as open box items like TVs, laptops, tablets with huge discounts that can be either new or in open box conditions. They also offer other used products such as sport items, home and kitchen accessories, toys and games, among others. The purchases made in this warehouse is guaranteed because they are backed by Amazon’s satisfaction guarantee, a product can be returned according to the returns policy but are not replace.

For evaluating the product condition AWD, the company does a previous check by testing physical and functional conditions of the products and afterwards they upload it in the webpage.

Due to the variability of the stock AWD cannot predict the future availability of the items, so only what is in the page can be purchase. And that way even though they do not sell them at the same price, they still gain a profit with them and not waste them.

This links takes you to the homepage of Amazon Warehouse Deals. If you want to take a look.
