You’ve hopefully heard of the Today’s Deals section of Amazon — we highlight the best of these deals for you every Friday. 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.

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 “This Trick Lets You Read E-Books Without an E-Reader.”

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. Best Sellers

Surely, you’ve heard of Amazon best-sellers. But did you know the retailer also has an entire Best Sellers section? It’s where you will find lists of the most popular items on Amazon right now based on the number of sales.

4. Most Wished For

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.

5. Gift Ideas

Still stumped over what to get someone as a gift? Scope out the Amazon 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.

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 “discounts on thousands of 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.

“Pre-owned products on Amazon Renewed have been inspected and tested by qualified suppliers to work and look like new, and come with the Amazon Renewed Guarantee,” the retailer says.
