How to Get Great Deals on Outdoor Patio Furniture?

High quality wood or metal patio furniture is often very expensive, but if you have a small budget for patio furniture and you think you won’t be able to afford the good stuff DON’T GIVE UP just yet. If you are a savvy shopper you can find ways to get great patio furniture at discounted prices. Here are some recommended ways that you can pick up great patio furniture at a discounted price.

Buy floor samples.

If you are shopping in your favorite home improvement store and they have some high quality teak or wrought iron patio furniture on display that you love but can’t afford, ask if you can buy the unit that is on display. Most stores heavily discount floor models because they have been used and handled by customers or they may want to change to a new display. You might have to wait to bring them home until the store changes the display but you could be highly rewarded for your patience by getting as much as 75% off on great quality patio furniture.

Buy from the manufacturer directly.

Some patio furniture manufacturers don’t sell to the general public but if you find one that does you can save a fortune. Constantly do web searches to find manufacturers that sell directly to the public. Often you can get similar high end patio furniture you have seen in your local stores at the same cost that the stores pay. Bypassing the middleman can save you heaps of money.

Lookout on online auction sites.

You can often find discount patio furniture at prices that even the end-of-season sales at your local store can’t beat.Stores and wholesalers will often sell their discontinued or closeout items through online auction sites like E-Bay at a fraction of the retail cost. Many offer free shipping too so you don’t end up paying a fortune for the item.

Check the online auction sites regularly and you could end up with a huge bargain. A word of caution though – when you are buying through an online auction, you need to be ready to purchase an item the moment you see it. You may not get another chance to bid on it so if you see something you want at a good price, just go for it. 

Shop at recycle or secondhand stores.

You will be surprised at the quality of furniture you can find at charity shops and secondhand stores like the Salvation Army. For great deals on furniture, try the Habitat for Humanity where the charity sells furniture that it doesn’t need in order to raise funds to purchase the necessities and essentials to provide new homes for the needy.

Buy at the end of the season.

As winter approaches, do you think the home and garden centers will pack away their patio furniture and summer items. NO! In fact, they rather not. Usually, they try to sell as much of it as they can rather than pack it in and having to store them up for the winter.

For that reason, if you shop at the end of the season you can get large discounts on high quality furniture. Of course, if you live in a warm climate country, every season is patio season. If this is the case, you can still take advantage of

end-of-season clearances intended to make room for new furniture styles. It is usually more worthwhile to buy towards the end of the patio season, or the end of summer.
