You should know how Ikea's great minimalist pieces complement a bedroom. It is already known for being relatively inexpensive, but you should know some ways to save even more!
Ikea might just be the top home furnishing store for frugal folks across the nation. The products are stylish but inexpensive, as long as you don’t mind using a little elbow grease to assemble them.
People trying to save a buck love Ikea’s low prices. But you can learn a few tricks to hang on to even more cash at the popular retailer:
Utilize Ikea's moving program and get $25 for free
You receive a $25 discount when you sign up for the Ikea moving program, and the program also has handy tools like shopping lists and inspiration boards.
There's no obligation to sign up, and only have to spend $250 (one or two pieces of furniture) to get the discount.
Head to the "as-is" section first for discounted items
Before you enter the wholesale section of Ikea, check the store's "as-is" room for discounted, pre-assembled products. The items in this room were either returned, used as display products, or slightly damaged, and therefore have hugely discounted prices! Plus, you'll save time by not having to assemble your new furniture
Never pay for extra parts
If you end up missing parts for your Ikea purchase, the store will replace them for free. According to a former company employee, you should simply figure out the missing part number (listed in the assembly instructions) and call your local store to ask for replacements.
Use your cash rewards card for extra benefits
If you have a credit card that offers cash back or rewards for purchases, make sure to utilize it. Of course, make sure to pay off the balance as soon as you're able to avoid interest.
Check the website for local deals
Before you go to the store, check for local Ikea discounts on the store's website. Every store has special coupons and offers, particularly for food, so make sure you take advantage of them.
