1 - what we are
Here at Discount Hunters, our mission is to provide you with the best products at the price that you want. We are an online Auction that features various products such as electronics, household items, health & beauty, home and kitchen appliances, tools and many more!! Some are sealed and some are open boxes, mainly customer returns from popular online retailers, overstock shelf pulls and unclaimed packages! We have a large team that inspects every item to make sure that it is in working condition, and to list the accurate description, and if it is missing any pieces or parts, However, please be mindful that we are not a retail store that sells only new products, so please make sure to check the description, as we will always mention any discrepancies there. Should you have any questions or concerns, we will always find solutions for them, and will make sure to provide you with the absolute best customer service!
