How to get a great deal on an IKEA Kitchen? Easy!
IKEA KITCHEN SALES
Typically held twice a year – once in the winter and once in the summer, it’s my guess that IKEA will be stepping up their kitchen sales to take advantage of the new markets opening up to them due to the current economic situation. And IKEA doesn’t disappoint! The IKEA Spring Kitchen Sale is on! Check out the full IKEA Kitchen Sales Flyer Online.
SEIZE THE DAYS SALES
Watch for monthly sales at IKEA with especially hot deals. You have to get there before the store opens (Great time to take advantage of the FREE BREAKFAST they usually offer!), and you often have to get some sort of voucher, code or coupon in the store in order to take advantage of the sales, but it’s totally worth it. See the April 2009 IKEA Seize the Days Sale Flyer Online.
DEBIT CARD SAVINGS
When you use your debit card to make a purchase, most stores print out a coupon at the bottom of your sales receipt for up to 3% off your next debit card purchase. You can easily turn that into cash for lots of great goodies to fill up your new drawers and cabinets by holding off on all the small buys until you’ve made your major purchases. Bear in mind – IKEA no longer accepts checks of any kind!
Of course, no trip to IKEA Is complete without a trip to the AS-IS room! The AS-IS room is part of IKEA’s Recovery Department – in order to keep prices low, IKEA tries to salvage returns, damaged items, and display pieces by selling them at an often steep discount. Very frequently, you’ll find scratched or dented appliances, sinks or entire rooms of furniture in there. All sales are final and items are sold…you guessed it! AS-IS. Love it!
DO YOUR RESEARCH
Doing your research ahead of time can save you bundles! IKEA is not a full-service store, and it pays (literally!) to do your research. I’ve gotten a lot of requests lately for a link to the IKEA Kitchen Secrets e-Book, so here it is: IKEA Kitchen Remodeling Secrets. This book will walk you through one man’s journey and provides tips, tricks and lots of pictures of an IKEA Kitchen Installation. I also have to highly recommend the IKEA Kitchen Planning forums at www.IKEAFANS.com – totally free and thousands of kitchens have been designed, planned, assembled, installed and enjoyed there. You can check out the over 12,000 IKEA images in the galleries while you’re there!
So, there you go – 5 ways of saving money at IKEA while remodeling your kitchen. And that’s just off the top of my head! Do you have other suggestions or ways you’ve saved?
