Furniture is expensive. Whether you are moving into a new home or just trying to give your current home a new look, achieving your creative vision without paying a hefty price tag can be tricky. With some smart shopping, you can still get quality furniture without breaking the bank. It can take a little more searching, but the big bargains will be worth the time.
This online outlet mall carries everything for your home from small decorative accessories to large statement furniture pieces in all styles. Many items are marked down from high-end retail prices, giving you the quality you want for less. The site offers an amazingly low flat shipping rate of $2.95—even on large pieces of furniture. The customer ratings feature allows shoppers to get a better idea of the specifics and if there have been any issues with a particular item prior to purchasing. Additionally, by signing up for their mailing list, you will receive an initial 10% off coupon as well as periodic coupons to use for those higher dollar items.

4. Big Lots
This big box retailer offers the full spectrum of cheap overstocked home items in a wide range of styles. While not all furniture is of the highest quality, there is usually a range of price points, some brand names, and they offer delivery. Typical store showrooms have bedroom sets and mattresses and various selections for the living room, dining room, and home office.
One may not think this big box retailer, known for having the lowest prices, would be a place to look for large furniture pieces, but the website currently has about 30,000 listings. In addition to Walmart’s own online-only furniture offerings, they have teamed up with Wayfair (formally CSN stores) to offer Walmart customers a marketplace of thousands of furniture items at very low Walmart-like prices. A wide range of styles from traditional to modern can be found with low cost or free shipping.
The great thing about Amazon is that the marketplace of various retail partners is so vast. You can find anything you are looking for, easily comparison shop, and find the best deal.

Browse the clearance and outlet areas on their website. Huge discounts can be found on large furniture sets from various designers. Furniture styles and selection vary.
Search the local classifieds for gently used high quality furniture. The offerings can obviously vary with for-sale-by-owner items, but good deals can be found, especially when people are moving and are in a rush to liquidate some items.
