If you’re looking to save money, there are some hacks you can use, but some of them come with a catch.

FAMILY ASSOCIATION

Did you know that you can sign up for an Ikea Family membership even if you’re single?

There are no annual or monthly fees for the program and you can gain access to amazing rewards and promotions.

Membership offers discounts on a variety of furniture, so check the online or in-store deal pages for discounts.

SECTION IN THE STATE

Ikea’s clearance section is a treasure trove of discounts and sales, including seasonal items and customer returns.

Some pieces of furniture can even be assembled for you, saving you the hassle of doing it yourself.

However, Monday is the best time to take advantage of this trick.

Most people do their returns on the weekends, said Lindsay Weekes, staff editor at Brad’s Deals.

According to Weekes, items in the As-Is section can be discounted up to 50%, but are typically discounted by around 1%.

Most locations offer an extra 10% off on a Wednesday, she said.

YELLOW TAGS

When you’re walking around the store, make sure you’re looking for the yellow tags.

At Ikea, yellow tags indicate last-chance sale items.

Ikea spokeswoman Janice Simonsen said the discount varies as local stores will set the prices, but typically it can be around 15 to 50 percent off.

Be sure to act fast as these items are either on a discount or are the latest products from a limited edition collection.

BRING YOUR BAG

It’s easy to carry items when shopping at Ikea, and you’ll likely need a bag to carry them all.

However, Ikea does not offer free bags at the checkout.

If you want to avoid paying extra for the big blue and yellow bags, make sure you bring your bags from home.

FREE SHIPPING ON AMAZON

This hack makes it so you don’t have to buy from Ikea.

There are many Ikea items listed on Amazon that can be delivered to your home for free with a Prime membership.

Buying from third-party sellers helps you avoid Ikea’s hefty delivery fees.

Always make sure to keep an eye on the price tag, however, as some sellers will raise prices to take advantage of people who don’t have Ikea around.

You can compare with the Ikea website to see if you are getting a better deal or not.

You can also take advantage of the store clearance section and yellow tag items.
