I want to share something with you very quickly today. If you’re planning to buy new furniture in the near future, I hope it’ll be useful to you and help you save some money. It saved me nearly two hundred dollars on the same set I could purchase at two different places!
When we moved into our house, we needed a new set of living room furniture. Bargain hunter that I am, I wanted a really good deal, but I didn’t want another set from Big Lots…which is usually the lowest price option when they have a 20% coupon. My store only ever has brown furniture, though. I’m so tired of chocolate brown. Not to mention, all of it seems…oversized. If you have a small room or just don’t like bulky furniture, that’ll drive you insane as well. I don’t mind it, necessarily, but it wasn’t what I was interested in buying. I had decided to make a change and I started with Value City Furniture. They often have very low priced furniture sets. Obviously, I have small kids who are hard on furniture, so I didn’t want to pay a lot. It didn’t take me long to find a few that I liked well. Yay, me! From there, I went to the Art Van Clearance Center. I found a Carson rocker/recliner there for $177. And then, I looked around some more online. Here’s what I found:
The Trocadero 3 Piece Living Room Set(shown above) at Furniture.com for $1139.97.
My semi-eagle eye noticed that this is exactly the same as the Stoked 3 Piece Set at Value City Furniture for $1139.97.
The difference? A coupon paired with free delivery. Sold! Now, they’re not offering the exact deal that I got right now. It typically coincides with big holiday sales, but they do have a discount offer now if you’re looking.
Through today (8/31) Furniture.com is offering 20% off a furniture purchase with the code 20LABORDAY. Delivery applies. When I made my purchase, delivery was free and I had a coupon. You’ll want to wait for this if you can. Believe me, I will let you know the next time that pairing is available.
Value City Furniture is currently offering free delivery. This can vary considerably. Depending on the distance of a store from your home and the amount you’re spending, you can likely save quite a bit. But not better than 20% and free delivery.
So, here’s the current breakdown as well as the total I paid with both discounts:
This is my cart at Furniture.com for the furniture I bought (currently 20% discount, but no free delivery):
This is my cart at Value City Furniture (currently free delivery but no discount):
What I paid when I purchased with the double discount:
$1036.11 – They were offering free delivery and a 20% discount as well. If you have time on your side and can wait for the combo, it’s the best deal. If you need to purchase sooner, depending on the amount you plan to spend, you’ll score a better deal with Furniture.com and a 20% savings offer. Every little bit helps, so make sure you’re maximizing your savings wherever you can!
