When Is the Best Time to Buy Furniture for Your NJ Home?

Furniture sales, like other major purchases, follow a pattern of when they go on sale, based on seasonal and promotional cycles. Knowing the best times to buy furniture can mean significant savings, especially if you’re shopping for several pieces. Here are the best and worst times to buy different types of furniture and tips on getting the best deal.

Patio Furniture: Late Summer/Early Fall

New outdoor furniture is typically available in stores by February, but the best deals are found in late summer to early fall (August to October), when retailers are trying to clear out their inventory. Look for discounts of up to 50 percent on patio and outdoor dining sets during this time.

Indoor Furniture: January and July, Holiday Weekends and Amazon Prime Day/Way Day

The best time to buy indoor furniture is during the January and July sales, where prices can drop by 10 to 60 percent. Retailers are restocking new inventory for the new season, and older models are marked down. Keep an eye out for holiday weekends like Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Cyber Monday for additional discounts of 20 to 60 percent. Amazon Prime Day and Way Day can also bring deals, with discounts of up to 40 percent.

Office Furniture: Back-to-School Season, Late Summer

The office furniture industry convenes at Neocon in June, where the latest innovations in office furniture are first shown. As a result, retailers will mark down last season’s products in August and September before the new models arrive. The back-to-school season (October-December) is another good time to shop, with discounts of 30 to 60 percent.

Worst Time to Buy Furniture

The worst times to buy furniture are during peak demand, such as February and August for indoor furniture and late fall to early winter for office furniture. Avoid buying outdoor furniture in the months leading up to when you need it, and in early summer, as prices will be higher.

Tips for Furniture Buying

  1. Negotiate: Negotiate with furniture sellers in-store, even though it’s not common, to see if you can get a better price.
  2. Look for Closeout Sales: Check for closeout, clearance, and floor sample sales for furniture marked down from its original price.
  3. Use Coupons: Consider using coupons to reduce the sticker price.
