Everyone wants a good deal, and free shipping is becoming a standard for large online purchases. But in the hunt for the lowest price, you might run into scammers and other hazards. It is important to know where to find legitimate sales and established retailers that will offer free shipping without strings. Here are the things you need to know to get the best dresser for the price.
Beware of scammers
As already mentioned, online scams are a very real problem, especially since the start of the pandemic. With more people shopping online and looking for the lowest prices, scammers are taking advantage by offering amazing deals that are really an excuse to collect your credit card information.
Online shopping scams are the most prevalent, especially in 2020. The basic rule of thumb is to only give your credit card information through a secure server with an updated security certificate. These platforms run your card without making card details visible to the retailer. It is also best to order from well-established furniture stores with good reviews.
Look for coupon codes
Many online stores offer coupon codes that give you free delivery regardless of the purchase amount. Other times these coupon codes might give you a discount on the dresser itself, which is sufficient to make up for the shipping cost. You can find coupon codes on many retail furniture stores on websites such as Groupon. Again, beware of scammers. Never pay for access to a coupon code.
If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
While this cliche is usually at the forefront of any bargain hunter’s mind, it bears mentioning here as well. If a dresser on a brand’s website is listed for $900 and you find it online for $100, you probably aren’t getting what you expect. The dresser could be damaged, but more likely it will be an unlicensed knock-off. With some scammers, you may not receive anything at all.
It is typical to be able to get clearance dressers at ridiculously low prices, but they won’t be available at a high cost on the brand’s website if they are from previous seasons. Check reviews for the site before giving them your card information.
Shop reputable and established online furniture stores
Many online furniture stores are able to offer a much larger inventory of dressers, and at much cheaper prices. Some furniture stores are able to purchase dressers and other bedroom furniture in bulk directly from the manufacturer or brand, then pass the savings on to their customers. Some less than perfect dressers may also be available at these stores at a significant discount, giving you elegance and durability at a much lower price.
Online furniture stores also offer additional sales on already discounted dressers during the same retail holidays that are observed by your local furniture store. These typically include Memorial Day, Labor Day, President’s Day, and Black Friday weekend. Of course, Cyber Monday gives you the lowest prices.
