I Went To An Amazon Returns Store

I Went To An Amazon Returns Store

HELLO FRIENDS!! This week, I ventured to an Amazon Liquidation Store in Raleigh, NC called Treasure Hunt Liquidators to get me a haul of Amazon customer returns! A few years ago, we bought an Amazon Return Box from a liquidation website — and it was kind of crazy, but we *were* able to get a lot of stuff for a pretty big discount. So when I heard about an Amazon Returns Store… I figured we had to go! I got a drone, a spice blender, a go pro lens, a massage chair, and a microdermabrasion tool (and a lava lamp & succulent growth light) — all for $10 each!

Quick note — the in-store shopping segments were filmed in late July/early August, when the mask mandate in NC was lifted — which is why you see a mix of mask & no-mask! We decided to wear a mask while shopping just because it was kind of close quarters in the store, but it was optional at that time.

    I suppose the risk of getting nose hairs in your microdermabrasion kit is the price to be paid for nicely priced products hahaha
    The microdermabrasion part killed me though hahah 
    Tyler: Don’t do it, no stop. Don’t.
    Saf: Okay. 
    … 
    I’m gonna do it again. 
    Tyler: Alright

    But seriously there’s so many good finds in this video! I had no idea that’s what they did with the returns!

    Coming from a small business owner who sells on Amazon: if a package is opened and used Amazon will (hopefully catch it and not send it out as new) then ask the business if they want to pay for shipping to ship it back to the business or pay (less money) for Amazon to “dispose” of it for them. I’m guessing that’s where these items all come from. Also little known fact, people think Amazon loses money from returns but make so much it doesn’t matter. Amazon only loses money on their own brand products. For any third party seller, the third party pays for that free shipping and free returns, plus pay amazon processing fees. So they don’t lose money and in fact make a little from liquidation sales

    Safiya innocently purchasing the herb grinder was hilarious, and sounds like something I would do XD

  8. N/A says:

    I can’t be the only one who’s seriously bummed out by how wasteful this all is — I mean, it’s technically the opposite because these are going to people and not landfills (initially), and I’m by no means upset with Safiya, she’s been doing this style of video (Amazon, Wish) for years. But just seeing the MASS SCALE of all of these products being delivered to one store makes my skin crawl and makes me think about how we’ve reached the point of no return with climate change.

    • Ari says:

      @Blood, Sweat and Smeraldo Flowers I asked a friend who works at such a store and she said that what’s left on the day before restock is usually broken-that was overlooked- or useless, but the useful items are either distributed among employees or donated to local homeless or women’s shelters.

    • J Marshal says:

      At least it’s getting another chance to go to someone who will use it, rather than just being dumped in landfill straight out. And it seems like a lot of those items were returned for honest reasons (at least the stuff Saf got). I think the bigger problem is just junk being made in the first place, poor quality, untested, prone to breaking, and meant to be thrown away as soon as it inevitably breaks.

    • lauralanthalasa7 says:

      @Blood, Sweat and Smeraldo Flowers I worked with the clothes and the stuff they didn’t sell just went straight to the burner. So yeah, pretty sad.

    • thecaffinatedthrifter says:

      Immediately my thoughts on this. At the same time I can’t help but think of the people who aren’t very well off, and do make a small investment like this to help pay bills. It’s just a vicious cycle till we regulate big companies like this for good.

  9. Madison Hokstad says:

    This is cool, but there’s a part of me that’s just really uncomfortable. Like we just throw so much away, it’s insane. It’s better that it goes here where someone might find and use this stuff, but the fact that all this stuff exists at all is insane. Whether it’s food or items or clothes, we waste so much that could mean everything to someone else, and keep producing at breakneck speeds in sweatshops just for most stuff to end up in the trash.

    • ruby m says:

      When I worked in Amazon Returns people would return so many gross things but I would always try to make sure the good items got re sold

    • takeagalbythehand says:

      Agreed. The other part of the equation, opposite the buyers, are the companies that make poor products (like the drone and the GoPro lens). The products with poor quality will inevitably end up in the trash either because they break easily or can’t be used at all. It’s such a waste of money and resources.

    • Эмилина Мильграм says:

      It’s even worse when it comes to big companies, (where I live at least), when an office or a branch closes, they throw everything away, EVERYTHING, from tables to printers, most of the time it all ends up in a landfill, unless a company dealing with this kind of thing takes it from them, hell, my dad knew a guy who worked as a mover I guess and they were taking everything from a bank, one of the ATMs still had money in it! (Though I have no idea what happened to it)

    • Kacy Mateljan says:

      Agreed. Usually I love her videos but this one just made me really sad about our wasteful society 😭

    • Amber Black says:

      Yeah it’s pretty sad to think of all the resources and hours of work go into making stuff that turns into trash or clutter without being used. We would do well to hesitate before buying anything new, and consider whether it’s worth not only the dollars we pay, but also everything that goes into making, packaging, delivering, and ultimately disposing of it. I feel a bit better buying and selling on local used marketplaces whenever it’s an option. Sometimes people even want what I consider “trash”; empty egg cartons for example are valuable to anyone who raises chickens.

  10. lsw t says:

    In a way it’s good that these places exist because otherwise this stuff would all end up in landfill. However, I think we’ve really got to change the way we view purchasing. If we put thought and time into purchase decisions we wouldn’t be returning as much as we are. Obviously sometimes we will be unhappy with a purchase due to sizing etc, but we still can sell it on ourselves or give it away to someone rather than returning it to a company who (without places like this) will put it straight into landfill. Not to mention the extra CO2 emissions from you returning your random plastic kitchen gadget. Respect your money, respect workers, respect the environment.

    • JarvisChrist says:

      Yeah seeing people buying hauls of stuff from Amazon with the assumption that you will return a lot of it is not sustainable. You never know if it’s going to be resold or just go in the trash.
