Some time ago, I began sharing my favorite items from what, I thought, was a well-known internet gold mine for interior enthusiasts. Wayfair Open Box.  Having worked for the furniture giant, I was familiar with the Open Box section on Wayfair’s website and knew fairly well how it functioned. However, as I began to share the tip with more readers and influencers alike, I started to realize that this little pocket of the worldwide web was not known very well. Although, since then more of the big blogs have started to pick this tip up, it’s grown in popularity! So, what is Open Box, you ask? Well, let’s run through it together.

What Is Open Box?

Wayfair Open Box is Wayfair’s clearance section for returned items. When a customer returns an item they are not satisfied with, Wayfair will inspect it for any damage or defects. Then, if the product checks out, it is repackaged and re-sold at a discounted rate in Open Box! 

Wait, I Have More Questions!

I’ve answered a few questions I’ve gotten about Open Box before. Not seeing one you’re looking for? Stick it in the comments section and I will investigate!

What types of products will I find?

It appears that Wayfair does not limit the types of products that can be found in Open Box. From furniture to textiles to outdoor and more, it all seems to be there. You may be hard-pressed to find high-end brands in this section, think Le Creuset and other bougie names. It’s also sort of like shopping at Homegoods – quantities can be limited. But Wayfair typically links you to the full-priced parent product if the Open Box offer is no longer available. Check out the product categories below to be taken straight to Open Box options.

What kind of discounts can I expect?

Open Box product discounts are widely varied. From price reductions that seem almost worthless to 60-80% off, you’ll see anything and everything in between.

Are These Items Damaged?

According to their website Open Box items are “inspected by our returns department to verify that it is in good condition. We make every effort to look for any indication that the item is defective, damaged or will not work.”. So, theoretically, Open Box Products should be as good as new with the possibility of a little wear and tear on the packaging.

What is the return policy for Open Box items?

While Wayfair is fairly generous when it comes to product returns and refunds, it seems that Open Box items cannot be returned unless they are deemed damaged or defective upon arrival. Check out their return policy for more!

How is it different from Daily Sales?

It’s important to note that Open Box and Daily Sales are two completely different shopping experiences on Wayfair’s website. Daily Sales features curated themes and heavily-sourced supplier promotions while Open Box is primarily returned items and closeout goods.

Is Open Box available in other countries?

Yes! In addition to being available in the United States, the web giant offers Wayfair Open Box Canada, United Kingdom, and Germany!
