4 tips for saving on furniture

You saw it, you loved it, but after seeing the price, you realize that your dream furniture might only ever be just a dream. Fortunately, there are many ways to get what you want without breaking your bank. Below are a few tips on how to get the furniture you want for your home at a price you’re comfortable with.

1.      Shop online.

With online shopping slowly but surely taking over the South African market, most retailers usually run promotions or specials to get people to shop online. Look out for sales that offer a discount for purchasing your furniture online instead of buying in-store.

2.      Be on the lookout for promotions that occur on certain weekdays.

Some stores always run promotions on certain days, with Friday being quite popular. Here you can shop Black Friday specials on your favorite furniture. For appliances, Mondays are usually the best days to shop Cyber Monday deals.

3.      Lay-by furniture.

They say good things come to those who wait, and this option is all about doing whatever is necessary to get your hands on the incredible couch or bed you’re eyeing. While this may not necessarily be a saving tip, it does give you enough time, up to 12 months, to pay off a piece of furniture you really want. It is also more of a money-saver than the credit option because you do not incur any interest or extra costs on your purchase.


4.      Sign up for promotions and sales alerts.

You might not be necessarily looking to buy furniture now, but signing up for sales alerts could help you find a deal you might have otherwise missed. It never hurts to be prepared.
