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.

  • The “decorations” of the rooms hide shortcuts to other parts of the store. The employees try to hide these doors but they allow them to get from one part of the store to the other extremely fast.
  • Don’t take the pencil for notes. This is another psychological trick. Simply having a free thing from a store makes a customer relax and gets them ready to buy things they do not need.
  • The IKEA FAMILY card gives a discount for some products. You can save 30-50 % by using it.
