Yes, you can legally buy unclaimed Amazon and USPS packages. Here’s how

If a Postal Service package hasn’t been claimed within 90 days, it’ll likely be auctioned off on GovDeals, a company the US Postal Services contracts with to sell unclaimed items. Items could be sold in lots, rather than individually — so you may wind up with a bunch more stuff to sift through, resell or donate. On the site, you can browse categories you are interested in — for instance, sporting equipment, beauty supplies and clothing.

The website Liquidation lets you choose the company you’re interested in buying bulk packages from, including Amazon, Target, Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot. For some items, you can actually see what you’re bidding on, but other listings will only show you images of the boxes or pallets and the category it falls under, as well as an estimated retail price.

Note that depending on the size and weight of the items you get, you can expect shipping to be upwards of $100.

Absolutely awful written article. GovDeals is a government auction website, and yes the USPS does INFREQUENTLY post unclaimed articles from the Atlanta recovery center there. Lost mail is collected over time and sold in bulk lots of gaylords up to 300lbs or more, and you will need to drive there and load it yourself once purchased. You can not, will not, and will never be able to buy one thing at a time. There is also competition from other bidders as well, so one single pallet of merchandise could go for $100’s more than what it is even worth.
