Amazon bin stores are a hot trend lately for bargain seekers and resellers alike. We are here to tell you exactly what they are and where to find an Amazon bin store near you.
What is an Amazon bin store?
When you walk into an Amazon bin store, you’ll see a bunch of giant wooden or plastic bins filled to the brim with liquidation items. The bins are part of the appeal because it’s a thrilling bargain hunt to dig through the deals.
The liquidation items in the bins include Amazon returns from FBA sellers and third-party marketplace resellers as well as overstock from other major retailers. The items can be electronics, health and beauty products, clothing, toys, home decor or even food. Anything you can think of may show up at one of these stores.
And the best part? These items are being sold for a fraction of the retail price so you can get some great deals. With the inventory (and prices) constantly changing, it’s a new treasure hunt every time you go.
Amazon Bin Store Pricing Structure
These stores are so popular because of their unique pricing system where the prices drop each day. Example below:
It typically works like this: The store is closed for a day or two to restock the bins with new items. On the first shopping day, all items have one price (like $8). Then, the next day whatever is leftovers from before has a discounted price at $6. And then, following that same pattern, every item would be priced at $4 on Day 3 and by Day 4 every item would only cost $2. On Day 5, everything would be $1, and then they need to restock again. Of course, the pricing and selection of items varies by store.
A few bin stores, such as the Goodwill bin stores, are going with a “pay by the pound” option with prices ranging from 79¢ to $1.49 per pound.
