Why cold? 10% is 10% and if you are buying a kitchen you are likely to spend £2000.

The instalation costs are expensive but some people might want to know!

seems a good deal to me? HOT

10% - pah!
You could do a better deal any day of the week, just by negotiating with their sales staff. Either ask directly for a discount, or (more likely) ask for freebies, or items to be included in addition to what you're paying for. They'll be so scared at losing sales and comission they'll roll over. If one sales-person won't, then talk to another or get their boss involved.

Have some heat. Some people need to stop thinking so cheap and realise that there is no cap to the prices that can be posted here, so long as the price is attached to a good deal, which this is.

If it were 10% off a TV this would be hot enough. £200 off a quality kitchen is pretty good.

10% is meaningless as to whether something is a good deal or not. 10% of what? An actual selling price, or an inflated RRP that they rarely sell at. Why not compare with a typical B&Q or Wickes kitchen sale, where they usually offer 33% or 50% off, as these are bigger numbers. But then, they inflate their prices more.

%age off is meaningless. It is there so you think you are getting a good deal. Look at the actual price of what you want to buy, rather than the amount off some fictitious price.

I'll have to give bartering a go!

The kitchen I have priced up is about £3000 so £300 saving is a good start!
I also think that Ikea kitchens are better made than wickes or b&q and they have better guarentees! Also I don't have to order them, can just pop into a store and pick it up (as long as they have stock that is!).

The pain with that is for a kitchen you often need different sizes of units and so on to fit in. You can guarantee that at least one of the pieces you will need will be out of stock, even if it is in stock on their system. It happened to us with our bedroom furniture. Planned everything out, checked stock online before driving 80 miles, checked stock with a sales assistant when we arrived ... and half of it was missing by the time we got to the warehouse. They really need a reserve feature.

Good deal indeed. When we got out kitchen we compared similar quality ones and Ikea was far far cheaper for an Oak one than B&Q, MFI, Homebase etc. probably about 30% cheaper I would say for a similar quality one. There is absolutely no chance of haggling in Ikea as far as I know - the price is the price - and the only other time they have offered a kitchen discount was the 21st anniversary sale when 21% came off everything (blinding deal!). When you are spending anything from £2000 (small kitchen with not many units or a cheaper style) but more likely £5000-£10000 (our kitchen was between £8-9000 without fitting which I did myself); I would say a 10% discount would be absolutely lovely!!!

Ikea don't do RRP. They sell their own products. I can't remember the last time I saw a B&Q or Wickes catalogue which published the prices of every unit and related item of each range for the year. Ikea's prices are pretty uniform. They go down a bit sometimes, but 20% off what is a much better quality and much more efficiently designed product sold in thousand of pounds is a good deal.

21% off everything?? Damn, I really want some bookcases and stuff, comes to about £600 but Ikea is the one place which doesn't seem to be discounting much. Hope this is the start of some good discounts in other areas.

The 21% off was a one-off one day sale which was not advertised much and some stores were so busy they had to be closed due to fights!!!! I think IKEA will survive the credit crunch!
