10 Ploys IKEA Uses to Make You Buy Their Stuff

IKEA stores are like Disneyland for adults: people go there not just to buy furniture, but to have fun and maybe even a little adventure. In this magic place, logical thinking disappears, and people start to fill their shopping carts with completely unnecessary things. As it turns out, the Swedish giant has a few tricks up its sleeve that they use to reprogram the thinking of their customers.

GIGGAG has done a little bit of research and learned about the techniques that this store uses to manipulate its customers. We wrote this article so that you don’t get manipulated the next time you visit an IKEA store.

3. There Are 2 days When You Can Buy New Products In the As-Is Department

All IKEA stores have the discount department (As-Is). Here you can buy some furniture with minor defects at a 70 % discount. Unfortunately, inexperienced customers end up buying completely useless things or furniture that is almost completely wrecked. But there is a secret you should know.

An IKEA employee shared it on Reddit. You can buy good-quality things at a discount right after the spring or the summer sale. This is because customers often return the products they either didn’t like or couldn’t use for some reason. And these products go straight to As-Is. So, mark April 1 and August 1 in your calendar — you can easily make purchases a few days before and after these dates.
