Open Box on Amazon

Status: Tell Us More
by on ‎05-11-2019 10:51 PM

Hey Best Buy,

       I recently shopped a 50 inch Insignia TV from Amazon, and it was only after my purchase that I found out about the collaboration between Amazon and Bestbuy to sell smart TVs. I then went onto the BestBuy website and found out about your open box deals. Honestly, I think that if BestBuy suggest to Amazon to put the open box deal options on their website as well it would boost the sales as well as saves customers some money. Anyway, thanks for reading!

Not really certain what you getting at.


Are you suggesting Amazon put a link to Best Buy on their web site or Best Buy put a link to Amazon on their web site.

Sorry I should've explained better. I meant that perhaps BestBuy could contact Amazon to put the links of BestBuy's open boxes there. So that customers who shop at Amazon primarily coud find out about the existence of the open boxes products.

The tecniquie is sometimes referred to as a pay per click.  Amazon would charge Best Buy each time that link was clicked on, purchase made or not.  Then Amazon would get a comission on the sale of the open box item somewhere between 15% and 25% depending on the item.


Amaazon fullfillment does not give things away to other retailers.  And Best Buy is a competitor.
