Search tips

Didn't find what you were looking for? Try these search tips to find the right information.

Search the type of item instead of a brand name. For example, search for "chip bag" rather than Tostitos or Lays or Doritos.

We have category pages for many items. If you can't find your item, try searching for the type of item. For example, "rice cooker" falls under appliances.

Avoid describing the item - remove adjectives and focus your search on only the item. For example, search for "microwave" instead of "broken microwave".
