Home > Personal Finance > 14 Ways to Save at Wayfair

Comments 0 Comments

Online shoppers delight in Wayfair, the online home goods store with everything from furniture and decor to kitchen goods and everything your backyard needs to become a stress-free sanctuary. While it could be easy to spend a ton at Wayfair, there are many ways to save. Here are a few.

1. Wait for an Annual Event

A few times a year, Wayfair offers annual events with discounts on a particular type of home good. If you check back on the site regularly you might be lucky enough to catch sales of up to 70% off.

2. Provide Your Email Address

Scroll to the bottom of Wayfair.com and enter your email address for access to special discounts and up-to-the-minute information on the latest sales and promos via email newsletter.

3. Create a Wayfair Business Account

If you’ll be purchasing goods from Wayfair for your home office, create an account with the Wayfair Business program to receive a business discount. You’ll also have access to an assigned business account specialist to help you with any of your questions, and you’ll save $50 off your first order of $150.

4. Refer a Business Friend

Wayfair business members who refer a friend to join the business program get $50 in rewards points once they do so.

5. Refer a Regular Friend

Business members aren’t the only ones who earn rewards for referring friends. Regular customers earn $10 in Rewards Dollars when a friend they refer makes their first order of at least $50. The friend gets $10 off their first purchase, as well.

6. Leave a Review

Wayfair often offers a cash bonus on each item you review on the site. Check under the “My Account” tab to see if this offer is available to you. You are also entered to win up to $500 in Rewards Dollars or a gift card every time you leave a review.

7. Shop the Daily Sales Section

Wayfair loads new deals on the site every day. Check under the Sales tab for limited-time offers. If you provided your email to sign up for a Wayfair account you can also learn about these sales through email.

8. Check out Clearance Items

Browse hundreds of overstock and open-box items at bargain prices by searching the clearance section of the site.

9. Learn About Upcoming Sales

Wayfair makes it easy for you to plan your next purchase by loading their monthly sales under the Upcoming Sales tab of the site. Check it out frequently and mark your calendar for upcoming sales on goods you’re interested in purchasing. You can also click the “notify me” tab to get an email reminder.

10. Apply for the Wayfair Credit Card

Consumers who apply for the Wayfair card have access to more savings, like no interest on orders of more than $500 when they’re paid within 12 months, rewards dollars on every order and points on every order to redeem for rewards dollars. Often the card comes with another additional benefit that changes. For example as I write this, members who apply for the card are eligible for a 48-month finance option on all Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster and Sealy mattress purchases more than $2,498. Plan to pay this card off in full after every use, as the 27.49% annual percentage rate is hefty. Check the card terms for more details.

Wayfair shoppers may also want to use a credit card that rewards their purchases. Many cards allow frequent shoppers to earn points or cash back for their retail habit. (Be sure to check your credit score before applying for a new card to see if you’ll qualify. You can check two of your scores free on Credit.com)

11. Use Your Card at Sister Stores to Earn More Rewards

Your Wayfair card can be used at Wayfair, Joss & Main, AllModern, Birch Lane, DwellStudio and Wayfair Supply, as well. Use it at all of these places to really rack up points. Points and rewards can be cashed in at any of these stores, as well.

12. Find Online Coupons

Although they might be harder to come by than other sites, it’s always worth doing a quick search to try to find additional Wayfair coupon codes. Try all the staples (like RetailMeNot, Coupon Cabin, Groupon and Coupons.com), then try a random Google search for “Wayfair coupons” to see what you come up with.

13. Get Social

Use social media media to your advantage by following Wayfair on Facebook and Twitter. This way you’ll be sure to catch all their sales. Using social media is especially important for flash sales that end the same day or in a couple of days.

14. Get Cash Back Bonuses

Join a cash back site like ebates and you’ll earn a $10 welcome bonus to purchase goods at stores like Wayfair. Check back regularly for additional coupon codes and ways to earn more cash back on your purchases.

Hello, Reader!

Thanks for checking out Credit.com. We hope you find the site and the journalism we produce useful. We wanted to take some time to tell you a bit about ourselves.

Our People

The Credit.com editorial team is staffed by a team of editors and reporters, each with many years of financial reporting experience. We’ve worked for places like the New York Times, American Banker, Frontline, TheStreet.com, Business Insider, ABC News, NBC News, CNBC and many others. We also employ a few freelancers and more than 50 contributors (these are typically subject matter experts from the worlds of finance, academia, politics, business and elsewhere).

Our Reporting

We take great pains to ensure that the articles, video and graphics you see on Credit.com are thoroughly reported and fact-checked. Each story is read by two separate editors, and we adhere to the highest editorial standards. We’re not perfect, however, and if you see something that you think is wrong, please email us at editorial team [at] credit [dot] com,

The Credit.com editorial team is committed to providing our readers and viewers with sound, well-reported and understandable information designed to inform and empower. We won’t tell you what to do. We will, however, do our best to explain the consequences of various actions, thereby arming you with the information you need to make decisions that are in your best interests. We also write about things relating to money and finance we think are interesting and want to share.

In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.

Our Business Model

Credit.com’s journalism is largely supported by an e-commerce business model. Rather than rely on revenue from display ad impressions, Credit.com maintains a financial marketplace separate from its editorial pages. When someone navigates to those pages, and applies for a credit card, for example, Credit.com will get paid what is essentially a finder’s fee if that person ends up getting the card. That doesn’t mean, however, that our editorial decisions are informed by the products available in our marketplace. The editorial team chooses what to write about and how to write about it independently of the decisions and priorities of the business side of the company. In fact, we maintain a strict and important firewall between the editorial and business departments. Our mission as journalists is to serve the reader, not the advertiser. In that sense, we are no different from any other news organization that is supported by ad revenue.

Visitors to Credit.com are also able to register for a free Credit.com account, which gives them access to a tool called The Credit Report Card. This tool provides users with two free credit scores and a breakdown of the information in their Experian credit report, updated twice monthly. Again, this tool is entirely free, and we mention that frequently in our articles, because we think that it’s a good thing for users to have access to data like this. Separate from its educational value, there is also a business angle to the Credit Report Card. Registered users can be matched with products and services for which they are most likely to qualify. In other words, if you register and you find that your credit is less than stellar, Credit.com won’t recommend a high-end platinum credit card that requires an excellent credit score You’d likely get rejected, and that’s no good for you or Credit.com. You’d be no closer to getting a product you need, there’d be a wasted inquiry on your credit report, and Credit.com wouldn’t get paid. These are essentially what are commonly referred to as "targeted ads" in the world of the Internet. Despite all of this, however, even if you never apply for any product, the Credit Report Card will remain free, and none of this will impact how the editorial team reports on credit and credit scores.



Your Stories

Lastly, much of what we do is informed by our own experiences as well as the experiences of our readers. We want to tell your stories if you’re interested in sharing them. Please email us at story ideas [at] credit [dot] com with ideas or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
