Best Times to Buy 1 of 12: Furniture

Best Times to Buy 1 of 12: Furniture

Whether it’s high time to replace that Craigslist couch, or you’re desperate for a new patio set, you’ll want to get the best deal for your money. But how can you know when it’s truly the best time to buy furniture?


Lucky for you, we’ve got the answers. Here’s when to buy furniture throughout the year.




February is a great time for picking up discounts on furniture. The weeks surrounding Presidents Day tend to feature loads of sales on all kinds of furniture. This month is right at the end of winter in the retail calendar, so stores need to clear their inventory to make room for the incoming spring line. To attract customers to the going-out-of-season models, they’ll slash prices and host mega sales.


While you’ll find marked-down prices on various furniture pieces in February, indoor furniture will see the steepest discounts this month. Look for sales on sofas, dinette sets, coffee tables and any of the other pieces that furnish your home.


Presidents Day weekend sales can hit before the actual national holiday, so start looking for price cuts early in the month and carry it through the holiday weekend.




Late summer is also a fantastic time for furniture finds. As another end-of-season month, August brings overcrowded showrooms with retailers who are eager to make room for incoming merchandise. Shop for furniture in August to enjoy discounts you won’t see just one month earlier.


For the best possible deals, look for outdoor furniture in August. Patio sets and lawn chairs are at their highest pricing during mid-summer, but by the time August rolls around, prices will be dropping dramatically.


While furniture sales tend to peak in August, you can find discounted outdoor furniture from the Fourth of July up through Labor Day, so be sure to keep an eye out for sales all summer long.


Furniture-buying tips


Whether you’ll be hitting up the furniture warehouse deep in the winter or late in the summer, these tips can help you save more:


  • Be patient. You’ll live with this furniture for years to come, so don’t jump into buying if you’re not loving it.

  • Layer coupons and sales. Always check a retailer’s online site for coupons and discounts before visiting their store. 

  • Be wary of junk from overseas. Before buying from an overseas manufacturer, research the company, look up online reviews and ensure they have a return policy.

  • It won’t build itself. When ordering furniture online, remember that it usually comes unassembled, so you’ll need to put it together or hire someone to do it for you.

  • Consider buying secondhand. You can save big on furniture and still get a piece you adore by purchasing pre-owned furniture.
