Guide to Buying Food at Amazon Warehouse
Amazon Warehouse traditionally sells returned goods for a discounted price. Amazon’s return policy does not allow for grocery items to be returned. This makes it sound like Amazon Warehouse is not an option to purchase grocery items, but that is not the case.
Amazon Warehouse sells short-dated and discontinued items. The standard short-dated item has at least 30 days left before it expires. One problem is that it is hard to tell well an Amazon Warehouse perishable item expires, but there is a workaround.
If you access the product through Amazon Warehouse, the expiration date is not displayed. If you access it through the main Amazon page for the item, you can determine the expiration date.
