I never knew about this until Martin's newsletter a few weeks ago. I have just purchase a what-look-like-new Alexa Show 8 2nd Gen, normally £110, for £55. Marvellous!

    I've had pretty good experiences with office equipment: a couple of items arrived broken / unusable but returns weren't an issue.

    Like I said, this was office equipment and if we'd wanted identical laptop / monitor stands, keyboards, mice etc then we might have struggled. As it was, I've always felt that what suits you may not suit me, so variety was great!

    What was sometimes annoying was trying to buy another 'one of them', as similar as possible to a previous 'one of them'. Rarely possible, so I'd have to start all over again.

    Not from the Warehouse, but I bought an Echo Dot (which runs Alexa 5th gen) for something like £22 on Amazon Prime day. I never actually got to use it as it was delivered to my parent's home as I was working away that week, and Dad set it up. Then Mum decided she wanted one so I bought another 2, one for her and one for me.
    No man is worth crawling on this earth.

    So much to read, so little time.
  • Been buying from Amazon Warehouse for years, in all that time only returned a couple of items as broken/missing parts which were refunded without any quibble.

    Warehouse Events where they reduce by a further 20%-30% are worth looking out for.

    I've had hit and miss experiences. Bean to cup coffee machine for £400 instead of £700 - looked brand new, still with stickers on was definitely a hit. Then a food processor that arrived with the wrong sized attachments that didn't fit in the bowl. Or maybe the bowl was wrong, difficult to tell! Yes there was a no quibble refund, but no collect from my home option at the time - I had to take it to a drop-off point, and they're big and heavy. 

    I'm usually willing to take the risk, unless it's a pitiful saving or something I need ASAP - especially now they're better at picking up from my home.

    All my Alexa devices are from the amazon warehouse I've had one or two other warehouse items one of which was broken when it was delivered so it was returned for a refund. I find it a way of getting items cheaper than the full price. My last item was an AV receiver that cost £239 rather than the £329 for the new item and it's still going strong 6 years on.
    Someone please tell me what money is
