Looking at buying a Canon 100mm macro lens, noticed that student prime members get 20% off at Amazon warehouse, but typically there are none on there.

Is it something that's updated daily? Any way of getting notifications for when there's one available from Amazon Warehouse?
Thanks in advance

amazon warehouse is just items bought my consumers like you and then returned for various reasons, so someone would have to buy the lens in the first place. if it's not a very niche product, it should be on warehouse

Something like that would be pretty rare as above. It's basically returned goods which they cannot sell as "New".

Dammit, they had one a couple of weeks ago. Will just have to keep checking I guess. Cheers though

Try .de warehouse, normally found them cheaper for camera equipment anyhow. 20% deal going also though you don't need to be a student to get it.

Just had a look on there, my German is awful, I may have just bought 3... Haha

I 'guessed' how to look for if they were in the warehouse deal and couldn't see them, thanks though.

Can we buy from all Euro amazon sites then? I should look at all of them!

Lol, they do have a translation button to view in English on the .de website only. From memory it is 2/3rds the way along the top right says something like "view in English - experimental"
We can buy from any but your prime benefits don't count although you can use the same logon across the sites. .fr and .it both have warehouse parts to the site although .es will not ship anything to UK. Also neither of the rest have translations so you would need to use google chrome website translation for them.
I've bought quite alot from the .de warehouse and normally everything arrives in 3-4 days and that's to N.Ireland so might be a day less if you mainland UK.
