I bought an Amazon return pallet and got 215 items – there’s enough to kit out a house & the number of lamps was insane | The Sun

RETURN pallets are taking the Internet by storm – with many YouTubers showing off their huge bargain hauls. 

One social media star, Mia Maples, has a whopping 3.32million subscribers and recently took to the platform to show off her Amazon return pallet haul.

Return pallets are pallets of returned goods that are sold on at hugely discounted prices by the pallet load.

From the auction description, you have no idea what’s inside those brown boxes and that’s what makes it fun and exciting.

The social media star titled her return pallet video ‘I Bought A Pallet Of Amazon Returns!! *215 ITEMS*’. 

Mia confirmed that she had no idea what would be inside but was hopeful it would pay off.

The YouTuber explained that she purchased the pallet from Restock Canada and got a home furniture pallet.

She explained: “When I say I was enticed by this, I was very enticed.” 

“Returns can be for any reason, you’ve probably returned something at some point in your life.

“You do run the risk of buying an entire return box of broken items.

For this price, Mia got a whopping 215 units.

She continued: “I will be super surprised if this actually gets here without any problems.

“215 units of home products on the way.”

Mia was stunned when her pallet was delivered in just six days after she placed the order.

The social media star confirmed: “The returns were delivered in a week. 

“They came so quickly, I got a knock on the door six days after I ordered it.”

With 215 items to go through, you may be wondering, what is Mia going to do with all of these products?

She explained: “Yes I might grab a few things here and there that I want to keep but the majority of the items will be donated to charities – some homeless shelters, some women’s shelters, a bunch of places, wherever we see fit for items.

“We won’t keep keeping or trying our hand at selling stuff. 

“We will be testing everything and throwing away the broken stuff.”

Mia and her mum, known as ‘Mama Maples’ then went through the contents of the box – opening and testing everything. 

As there were so many items to go through, the mother and daughter duo took a couple of days to go through it all.

There was a huge variety of products in the pallet, including shoe racks, drying racks, water bottles, tupperware sets, photo frames and lunch bags.

It was full of kitchenware, with tea towels, pans, casserole dishes and plate sets galore.

There were some handy utensils and utensil holders, as well as a fondue set, a can opener and weighing scales.

There was also stuff for your bathroom, including a shower caddy, toilet seats, toilet brush and towels.

What’s more, there was an array of soft furnishings, including blankets, napkins, curtains and six rugs. 

There was certainly enough to kit out a house, in particular with the huge amount of lamps.

With ten lamps in total, Mia said: “There’s a lot of lamps”, as her and Mama Maples went through each lamp, getting them out of the boxes and testing to see if they worked.

After opening and testing everything, Mia explained: “We tested everything.

“They say about 10-20% either won’t work or will be broken. 

“I think that’s about right, about 15% looks broken.” 

Although there were a huge amount of products that were in great condition, there were some products that failed to work – some with switches not working, damaged zips and many a smashed plate.

Mia calculated the average cost per item at $3.40 an item – which works out at £2.18. 

The YouTube star was very impressed with her bargain haul, and it’s clear that many others were too, as her video has racked up a whopping 1,683,416 views.

YouTube users loved the video, with many taking to the comments to express this. 

One person said: “This is literally one of the coolest ideas ever Mia!!!!!”

Another added: “I've wanted to do this for years!!!! I love getting packages, and the fact that only 20% is defective is awesome.” 

A third commented: “I had fun watching you and your Mum open all this stuff! I love that you'll be donating the functional items.” 

One user explained that she had also purchased a return pallet: “I would advise anyone considering this to do it for fun, not to get cool stuff.
