AmazonBasics products are generally less expensive than the competition. Are any of these products worth buying? The short answer: YES!

If you haven't already noticed, here at Thrifter we love Amazon and AmazonBasics is just another reason to talk about all the great deals you can find when you shop online. Our favorite online shopping outlet offers the best deals on all your favorite products, often at discounted prices compared to other retailers. Not to mention the unlimited fast and free shipping eligible items all over the site for Prime members.

But did you know that Amazon offers its very own brand of products? Yep, manufactured, sold and distributed directly from Amazon, right on their very own website. This brand has been around since 2009 with a select pool of 1200-3000 products that are offered throughout 27 departments that range from an array of Home and Office products, Sports & Outdoor recreation items and even Tools & Home Improvement supplies. While many offers include Computers & Accessories, Cell Phones & Accessories, and Electronics, make sure you complete thorough reviews of the reviews of these products. In my attempt to list a few, I decided it should be up to you, as finicky as we all can be with brands pertaining to the necessary functions of our technologies.

It can be kind of difficult to get to the AmazonBasics store shelves and beware of your navigations on the site. Once you leave AmazonBasics, you may not really notice that you're no longer in there. Search by BRANDS - AmazonBasics. The list of products available will come up and you can choose from the departments or just browse the items. Once you select an item, you will know the product is an AmazonBasics brand by the header at the top of the description of your item. The way to get lost is by clicking on any sponsored items or other items that are recommended in your search. Navigating away from the brand pool is easy to do nonetheless.

AmazonBasics has some super great deals though. I took some time with the site to seek and find some of the deepest discounts available on the web. They all had great reviews from our fellow Amazon shoppers/buyers and we all know what a review is worth these days. Take their word for it! ---

My favorite thing to do is travel. My other most favorite thing to do is organize everything. This makes for a fun time packing for a trip.

I recommend any of the AmazonBasics packing organizers found in Luggage & Travel Gear. My favorite is the 4-Piece Packing Cube Set - Large because it comes in a variety of colors and the mesh liners add a sense of security in knowing that you can see your items as they are stowed away inside your carry-on or other luggage. Remember what I said before about maximizing your luggage by packing smarter, now you can really put your skills to use.

I also like this 4-Piece set for the variety of sizes. Small, Medium, Large, and Slim - think about all the different ways you can organize these bags and then fit them, ever so compacted and organized in your regular luggage bag that you also found here at Thrifter!

This RFID Travel Neck Stash will help you keep your most important personal items close and secure at all times in your travels away from home. It's only $11.99 and offers separate organizing compartments, an ID window and of course, the RFID blocking material will keep your credit cards protected from scary scanners. The Travel Money Belt is great for the guys or the ladies.

These are all so useful, convenient and durable, at comfortable prices.

Pet supplies can be awful pricey at the pet club stores and especially at the pet aisle in the grocery store. If you're a pet owner, you may already be aware of all the great deals Amazon has to offer on pet supplies and toys and other products. AmazonBasics does not have too many items in their branding just yet but this deal was just too hard to pass up - get 900 waste bags folks! The AmazonBasics Dog Waste Bags (with Dispenser and Leash Clip) could almost last your dog's entire lifetime. It's eligible for Prime members to receive free shipping. The reviews are focused on the bags themselves, they are sturdy and reliable, but keep in mind that the leash clip may not be suitable for bigger dogs. But again, 900 waste bags is quite a deal at $14.99.

We know you're ready to get out in the backyard this summer, or maybe the patio any time of the year - this Fabric Hammock with a Stand is only $79.99 with FREE shipping for Prime members! If you've ever wanted a deal on a hammock, this is it!

Add some more ambiance to your porch with the Havana Bronze Commercial Patio Heater built and constructed by Amazon and sold at quite a discounted rate, just $111.58 after another 6% Amazon built in discount. With the savings you'll gain on this alone, you could update your Prime membership for another year to be sure you qualify for the free shipping for Prime members.

While you're hanging outdoors, we know that you photographers out there are always on the lookout for new equipment. This 50-inch Lightweight Tripod with Bag is a best seller at less than $20 bucks and Prime eligible.

When it's time to come in from the great outdoors and get back to the office, one can never have too many pads of paper or notebooks laying around. These are great to have at home too! The AmazonBasics Legal/Wide Ruled Legal Pads have 50 sheets per pad in a 12 pack of pads for just $7.97.

Printer paper can get expensive, especially when you only buy one ream at a time. Try out the 92 Bright Multipurpose Copy Paper made and sold by AmazonBasics! It's only $3.27 per ream. With free shipping for Prime members, you might as well buy two or three just to have extras on hand.

These are everyday deals available at Amazon.com when you select AmazonBasics Brands in your search filters. Get your money's worth and get some AmazonBasics products.
