You may fancy yourself to be quite the expert shopper when it comes to sites like Amazon. You know how to search for deals on items you most want and need. (Prime members are particularly savvy.) But things are constantly changing at Amazon and there are some secret deal sections even those with eagle eyes are likely to miss. Let us show you around the five secret departments on Amazon that are stocked with deals.

There's an outlet, a Prime-only discount hub, a device deals spot, a refurbished section and coupons galore — all ready to be plucked. You'll also find awesome giftables inside that would be just perfect for Mother's Day!

Let the secret tour begin. Be sure to bookmark the five hidden hubs as you go. We'll also share a few deal highlights for each secret section, nab 'em if you want 'em because they won't last long!

Prime members, did you know there is a sale page with exclusive sales for you? Just for Prime has serious markdowns on all your faves, sorted into categories Most Popular; Home & Kitchen; Electronics & Accessories and Toys, Kids & Babies.

Whether you're shopping for yourself or for Mom, you won't want to miss the 53 percent discount on this No. 1 bestselling cool mist humidifier and nearly 60 percent off this dreamy queen-size weighted blanket!

Non-members, don't worry. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial and try it out and enjoy these savings.

In a nutshell, Amazon Outlet is an online overstock shop with low-cost items galore, crossing every Amazon category. You might be surprised by what's listed in the “patio” section (64 percent off a highly rated fire pit) "kitchen" (an air fryer that's over half off) and in “electronics” (Apple AirPods for under $100!). It's pretty fun to just randomly scroll the main Amazon Outlet page and dig through thousands of overstock deals.

Amazon Device Deals

When you need a new device, this special Amazon Device Deals link is the place to go. While you could check out Amazon's main page for "Today's Deals" and select "Amazon Devices" for some sale items, it won't reveal all the deals. Amazon Device Deals has a stunning selection of markdowns on new and refurbished gadgets for your home. Don't tell Mom, but I'm gifting her with this Echo Show 8 (2nd Gen, 2021 release) for Mother's Day for $90 (was $130) to make video calls a breeze. There are deals on so many devices for your home (Blink security cam!), your person (Echo Frames) and even your car (Echo Auto is 60 percent off!).
