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.
