But chances are good that you’ve never heard of many Amazon brands. In recent years, the retail giant has amassed dozens of private brands and other product collections that are exclusive to Amazon — basically, forms of generic brands or house brands.
And just as the house brands sold in stores generally are cheaper than the brand-name equivalents that sit next to them on the shelf, Amazon-brand products may offer better value than their brand-name counterparts.
In fact, some of the steepest discounts that Amazon has offered during the past few Prime Day sales were on its own brands.
So, it pays to get to know the exclusive brands of the nation’s second-largest retailer based on sales.
Following is a look at some of Amazon’s own brands.
AmazonBasics has become an expansive brand over the past decade, comprising everything from LED lightbulbs and motor oil to bedding and luggage.
Just to name a few, the AmazonBasics product categories include:
- Computer, wireless and A/V accessories
- Office products
- Pet supplies
The Amazon Elements brand boasts premium products that are tested for purity. Products currently include:
- Vitamins and supplements
- Baby wipes
As Amazon describes it, the Solimo brand “offers a variety of everyday goods at a just-right price.” And it’s a wide variety, at that — everything from coffee pods to Epsom salt.
Solimo product categories include:
- Beauty and grooming
- Food and beverage
- Health and personal care
- Household supplies
- Vitamins and supplements
3 more food brands
