Amazon deals aren't exclusive just to the holiday season, Black Friday, or Cyber Monday—if you go to the site's little-known Warehouse section, you'll find discounts on high-end items all year long. As pointed out by Yahoo! Life, this page specializes in deals on pre-owned and open-box products and includes a range of categories like unlocked cellphones, video games, and kitchen gadgets. Many of these products have been previously returned to Amazon by customers, and each item is given a 20-point inspection by employees before going back onto the site.

Most notably, you can find deep discounts on electronics like the Samsung S20 at almost half off the original price, the new Apple MacBook Pro discounted 11 percent, and the latest Apple iPad Mini model discounted 12 percent. There are even deals on sought-after video games like The Last of Us Part II for PlayStation 4 for half the original price.

It's not all about big-ticket electronics, either. There are also essential items every house needs like Ziploc bags and Glad trash bags. (Items like these are simply open-box products and have never been used.) Pricey kitchen gadgets are also available for less, including the Keurig Single Cup K-Select Coffee Maker discounted 28 percent and the Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1 Pressure Cooker discounted 25 percent.

To make sure you're going through Amazon Warehouse for these items, go to the individual product page and click "Buy Used." From there, you'll see whether or not the item is available from Amazon Warehouse.

To uncover all the amazing deals you never knew about, head over to Amazon’s Warehouse section. If you want even more deals, head on over to the Amazon Coupon page.
