You’ve hopefully heard of the Today’s Deals section of Amazon.com — we highlight the best of these deals for you every Monday. Maybe you’ve also heard of the Warehouse Deals section, where Amazon offers great discounts on used goods.

But chances are good that you’ve never heard of some — or perhaps any — of the following sections of Amazon.com:

1. Cheap Reads

If you ever read e-books on any manner or brand of device, you need to get to know Amazon’s Cheap Reads for Kindle section.

There, you will find free e-books for Kindle, which is Amazon’s line of e-readers. But you don’t need a Kindle to read these freebies, as we detail in “How to Enjoy E-Books Without Buying an E-Reader.”

To explore the free offerings in the Cheap Reads section, click on a genre listed under “Top Rated Free Books” on the left side of that page.

Just note that Amazon says free books sometimes vary in quality or don’t support all Kindle reading features. The retailer recommends first checking out reviews and ratings for free books you’re considering downloading.

2. Coupons

Perhaps you’ve seen a coupon attached to an individual product webpage on Amazon. But the retailer also has an entire Coupons section.

Yes — it’s what it sounds like: a hub for pretty much every coupon that Amazon is currently offering on any product. So, check it out before you buy anything on Amazon.

3. Most Wished For

Surely, you’ve heard of Amazon best-sellers even if you’ve never visited the Best Sellers section, where you will find lists of the most popular items on Amazon right now based on the number of sales. But did you know Amazon also has a Most Wished For section?

There, you will find lists of the products that Amazon users most often add to their wish lists or gift registries. So “Most Wanted” might be a better name for this section. The Most Wished For lists are updated daily.

4. Gift Ideas

Still stumped over what to get Mom for Mother’s Day this Sunday? Scope out Amazon’s Gift Ideas section. Here, you will find lists of the products that are most commonly ordered as gifts right now. These lists are updated daily.

5. Bargain Finds

In Amazon’s Bargain Finds, many if not most items cost $10 or less, with some as cheap as $1.

Photos dominate the layout. In fact, photo, price and rating are the only bits of information you will see about an item until you click on it. This makes it easy to scroll through many products quickly.

6. Outlet

Amazon’s Outlet section, as you might guess, is basically the e-commerce giant’s equivalent of an outlet store — or perhaps more like an outlet mall. Here, you will find “thousands of discounted overstock items,” Amazon says.

The Outlet section is clearly divided into departments, so you can easily hop right to the deals on, say, home goods or even groceries.

7. Amazon Renewed

The Amazon Renewed section is where the retailer sells refurbished goods — such as smartphones, computers and appliances.

“Products on Amazon Renewed have been inspected and tested by qualified suppliers to work and look like new, and come with a minimum 90-day supplier-backed warranty,” the retailer says.
