I know Ikea is normally a cheap option for a lot of things, but I'm looking at a leather sofa and 2 armchairs and it comes to £1,069.27 so would like them cheaper.

Has anyone successfully haggled?

I haven't given much because my friend's all want my 2nd hand stuff.
ask them for discount. when they say no, ask to speak to their manager/supervisor. if anything, you should get a bit knocked off which is better than none.
IKEA land of a thousand puzzles you can't solve
my mum is obseesed with our freegle..... she gets all excited when summit comes up... and could open a shop with the stuff she has acumilated.

my fault I told her about it
If you dont ask you dont get....imo

Thanks all for your replies, I have looked on freecycle/freegle but I'd prefer to buy something new- I know where it's been- I don't know if someone's been sick down the side of it etc lol.

I'll have a look in the bargain section like you said, and then try the manager. I'm a member of the IKEA family card thingy but have never received any discount vouchers etc I might contact them first actually and see if they'll send me anything?!

Thanks again

I don't mind second hand stuff, just things like a bed or sofa or something would rather make sure it's new. I'm a snob

From memory you dont get send vouchers as an ikea family card holder but certain items in the store will display 2 prices, the normal price and the family price.
Having worked their for a little while and having to always listen to the boring meetings about how much they have saved on the production of this or the shipping on that I would think it very unlikely that you would get a discount. They will tell you that the prices are already as low as possible.
Could chance your arm, no harm in trying. Which store if you dont mind me asking?

I get vouchers because I am a family member.

I dont!
i get vouchers! i did note that my daughter visits and gets her card swiped while i forget-and she didnt get them which i thought was bad.

I lol at people wanting new only...nice if you can afford it! i have had 2nd hand stuff and dont mind at all (not mattresses!) in the past. I managed to save money and have lovely hols instead and get a lovely house! I can live with the odd 2nd hand item!
