Since the financial crash all the way back in 2008, people have found money much harder to come by. This has meant that many people now look to save as much money as possible, especially when it comes to high end products like a sofa. In the last century, buying something like that meant spending hours, sometimes days, walking around various home furniture stores. The only choices available where what was on display, and sometimes it was difficult to find something that was decent enough to buy.
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, we now have access to thousands of sofa’s and other products. This means that we can sit in the comfort of our own home and go through numerous stores to see what is on offer. No longer are we stuck with a choice of a few designs and colors, we have an endless selection to look at. This means that it can take a long time going through them all, but picking the right sofa is very important. Not just financially, but also to ensure that we get years of comfort out of it.
So how to find a cheap sofa?
The first thing to do is decide which one is wanted. It is essential to build up a shortlist as you go through the different sites. The best way is either to bookmark the pages, print them off, or use the old fashioned method of pen and paper. Only when you have a small selection of those you would like can you then move onto price. Remember, do not select a sofa based on price alone, as some of the cheaper ones are not very durable or comfy.
Each sofa on the list needs to be researched in full. Some sites may have one with a slightly different design or cushions, so it is important to ensure that you are comparing like for like. Always take into account delivery time, delivery costs and taxes.
Once you know the exact sofa that you wish to buy, and where you will be getting it from do not order it straight away. Send off an email to the sales department asking for a discount. Some will give a discount, some will not. It is worth sending the same email off to the second best price, and ask them can they beat the price of the cheapest one you have. Supply them with a link to the product.
If they do offer a discount, they will either offer you a code to use at checkout, so do not forget to enter it, or ask you to phone the order in. Some stores may offer a 10% discount, so it may be worth contacting all those stores within that price range.
