Best Ways to Save Money at IKEA

IKEA is already known for their cheap flatpack furniture. So you know if you are shopping at IKEA you are already going to make lots of savings on not only furniture, but other cool and funky items that they now sell. However, if you don’t come to IKEA with a prepared list (and probably a map!), then it is likely you will find things you didn’t even know you needed and end up putting a massive hole in your pocket!



Listed below are the top 6 ways to help you save the most possible money at IKEA:

1. Signup to IKEA’s Moving Program

This program is similar to any other type of loyalty scheme. If you shop at IKEA a lot then you should definitely sign up! In this program you receive a $25 discount when you spend $250 or more. Those regular IKEA shoppers know that spending $250 at IKEA is very easy! So why not get an extra $25 off?

2. Have a List Prepared

In the same way you never go grocery shopping without a list, it is important to go to IKEA with one as well. (You also have to actually stick to the list!) Going to IKEA with a prepared list means you already know how much money you are going to spend. Sticking to the list means you will not blow your budget.

3. Don’t Go Through the Maze Too Much

It can be very tempting to venture deep through the maze, but don’t do it! Exploring the maze is very likely to cost you a lot more time and money. The maze is full of amazing furniture and other cool things that are certainly not on your list. So, to save money you should try and take as many shortcuts as possible and only pick up the items that you actually came for.

4. Find the “Last Chance” Tags

Have you ever seen those yellow tags saying “last chance”? Well, take the last chance very seriously! These items are usually being discontinued or are the last products left in a limited edition and they usually come with a discount! The discount usually ranges from 15% to 50% off. So make sure you always keep an eye out for them.



5. Wait for the Kitchen Sale

There is usually a massive kitchen sale three or four times every year. You can get savings of up to 20% off, so if you are able to hold out until the next kitchen sale comes around, you should wait. There is always a good bargain to find! By purchasing any furniture, you don't have to worry about any IKEA assembling services in Sydney or in other cities.

6. Get the IKEA Family Card

If you haven’t already, you should definitely look into a family card for IKEA! It is free to join and you don’t have to worry about collecting enough points to get a discount, you get benefits no matter what. By investing in the IKEA family card you will be able to stay on top of the latest and greatest offers.
