A TikToker has revealed how she buys mystery boxes that Amazon customers have returned for £1 an item in the hopes of bagging herself a bargain.
Becky Chorlton, 24, from Lymm, Cheshire, is no stranger to second-hand items as she is often spotting at car boot sales and charity shops trying to get more for less.
She decided to take a gamble and said she had purchased several return parcels – but she was left sorely disappointed by the results.
The savvy shopper, who has 135,000 followers on TikTok, shared a clip on her page a she opened up a number of mystery boxes.
The first package she opened was an inflatable brown dinosaur costume, which would excite any child at heart.

Becky seemed shocked at how random the parcel was, but equally as joyful as she said: ‘Oh my God, I need to put this on.’
When she put on the hilarious costume, she realised it had a broken zip, but she is determined to fix it, asking her followers if they had any solutions.
The next mystery parcel she opened was a matching sage gym wear set, which consisted of a sports bra and some shorts.
The sleek set still had the tags on it and looked brand new, meaning Becky treated herself to a new gym outfit for the bargain price of just £1.
She then opened up a rather exciting looking parcel, which turned out to be an Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 5G smartphone which retails for £239.99 on Amazon.
Becky could not believe her luck as she says ‘surely not’, but to her disappointment it was simply an empty box.
She then opened another parcel to find a round, black, rather harsh looking cleaning brush with yellow bristles.
But Becky is quite excited about this product, as she said: ‘Oh I’ll actually use that’.

Ripping open another mystery packet, Becky has gotten what looks like two plastic non-slip pet bowl covers in pink and blue with little paw prints on them.
The next package that Becky opened, which she says looks like a ‘such suspicious parcel’, turned out to be what looked like a brown buckled belt with the mysterious letters ‘L.F’ engraved on it.
She then opened a new blue reusable fabric face mask with a built in air vent.
Saving one of the best for last, Becky opened one of the largest boxes, which bizarrely turned out to be a singular deflated tyre.
She looked rather gobsmacked as she pulled the tyre out of the box and said ‘a full on tyre!’
Although there were no clear signs as to whether the tyre was used or new or what vehicle it was for, new car tyres can range anywhere upwards of £100, meaning she might have bagged herself a bargain.
