Money-Saving Strategies to Pad Your Office Furniture Buys

The right office furniture can elevate your professional space from a place of business to an inspiring hub of comfort and productivity. Whether you’re looking to change up the vibe in your home office, outfit a new waiting room for a corporate building, or anything in between, you can find what you’re looking for online. There are so many options online for office furniture, no matter what your budget is. There are also so many ways to save money when buying furniture online. Here are some of my all-time favorites.

How to Earn Cash Back at Ebates

Who doesn’t want to earn money while shopping online? This is actually possible with Cash Back at Ebates. As you shop online, Ebates automatically takes a percentage of your order total and gives it right back to you as Cash Back in your Ebates account.

Check out store pages on Ebates for places that sell office furniture like Dell Small Business and Dell Consumer to see what the current Cash Back percentage is. The more you shop online, the faster you’ll be able to watch your Cash Back grow, and the more you’ll earn while saving.

Sign up for Store Emails

When you sign up to receive store emails, you’ll start getting emails full of sales information and special promotions so you’ll never miss out on a good deal again. Some stores will also send you a coupon code that’s good for a discount on your next order, like a 10% off code or free shipping, free gifts, and more. Use these codes for a big, expensive order to save the most money. The codes usually don’t have many restrictions, which means you can generally apply them to items that are already on sale or specially priced, but check with each store to be sure.

Big Sales Events

Furniture stores are always running sales, and so are stores that don’t necessarily specialize in furniture but have a furniture section. Check around at all of your favorite stores to see what sales are currently going on. Last year, I found my couch on sale at a store that I didn’t even knew sold furniture during a huge 50% off sale that caught my eye online! Watch for Friends and Family sales, annual clearance events, and holiday or seasonal specials to really get the best prices on furniture.

Shop Around for the Best Price

Speaking of getting the best price, remember to shop around. Lots of stores offer price match guarantees, which means it really pays off — literally — to be a diligent shopper and compare prices. When you shop for new furniture, open up a couple of browser tabs and check other stores to see their prices on the same or comparable furniture pieces. This will ensure that you’re finding the best deal possible.

Use Promo and Coupon Codes When Shopping Online

Once you find that lowest sale price, make the deal even sweeter by adding a promo code to your order. These codes are an all-time favorite of mine to use whenever I shop online. I can’t even tell you how much money I’ve saved by using them regularly. Just apply one of these codes during checkout and the discount will immediately be added to your order. Find codes for savings like 35% off all office furniture at Best Buy, Kmart, and other stores, or so many dollars off your order plus free shipping at top stores.

Look for Free Shipping

Having to pay for shipping whenever you shop online can really add up over time and take a big chunk out of your overall shopping savings, as well as your shopping budget. Spend your money on things that are much better than shipping by always looking for stores that offer free shipping, either on every order, on orders over a low minimum amount, or by finding coupon and promo codes for free shipping. Office Depot has a low free shipping minimum of $35, and has free in-store pickup if you want the online savings but can’t get your order total over $35.

Don’t Forget About Those Store Credit Cards

Remember to use your store credit cards every single time you shop so you can get those valuable rewards points or discounts that lots of cards offer. The Target REDcard, for example, gives you a 5% discount every time you use it to place an order. Other cards offer rewards programs that give you points for every dollar you spend, and after you earn so many points, you get free store credit, gift cards, or other awesome perks.

Rewards Program Savings

Check to see if the store where you’re buying your furniture has a rewards program that’s separate from the store credit card rewards. For example, the Staples rewards program gives you up to 5% back on your orders, gives you access to exclusive bonus savings events, offers free shipping, and rewards you in cash for recycling ink and toner cartridges. If you’re spending all that money on new furniture, you might as well earn some rewards for it, right?
