What is the Way Day Sale?
Way Day is Wayfair’s equivalent of Black Friday or Cyber Monday. It’s a 48-hour sales event that only happens once a year. Wayfair offers some of the most significant discounts on furniture, decor, and other home goods during this time. The sale’s timing varies yearly but typically takes place in April.
When is Way Day?
Way Day will take place this year on April 26th at 12 a.m. ET and will end on April 27th at 11:59 p.m. ET. They do have some early Way Day deals taking place right now.
Way Day Picks (updated!)
Here are some of the brands you want to put on your radar:
Here are a few highlights to mention.
I’ve seen some fascinating deals on lighting. I love these globe pendant lights and this sweet star pendant (perfect for a porch).
If you need some new bath towels, this set of Turkish Cotton Bath Towels is almost 50% off and has fantastic reviews.
How to Score the Best Deals
To truly maximize your savings during Way Day, it’s crucial to have a plan in place.
→ Sign up for Emails (for new shoppers)
New shoppers to Wayfair can score an additional 10% off coupon. You want to read the fine print on the coupon; Wayfair is notorious for excluding some of its most popular brands. If you want a deal there, the secret is to call customer service (be nice), place your order over the phone, and ask for a discount. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. 🙂
→ Create a Wishlist Beforehand
Creating a wishlist beforehand is a smart strategy to help you stay on track and avoid impulse purchases. With over 200,000 items on sale, navigating through all the options can be overwhelming, but having a wishlist will help you focus on the most essential items.
It’s easy to create a wishlist. First, create an account on Wayfair (it’s free.) Then, from the menu option, click on Lists. From there – you can create a list. Call it Way Day. Call it Dream Home. Call it Happy Wife, Happy Life, and send it to your significant other. (kidding.) Anyways, when you see an item you like on Wayfair, click the heart next to the Add to Cart button and add it to the appropriate list.
→ Compare Prices with Other Retailers
Once you have organized your wishlist, compare prices with other retailers, especially for the big-ticket items. Many retailers might sell the same thing or similar pieces for sale. While Way Day offers some of the year’s lowest prices, it’s always a good idea to ensure you’re getting the best deal possible. By doing a quick search online, you’ll have a better idea of whether or not the discounted price on Wayfair is genuinely the best option for you.
Using price comparison sites (like Google Shopping) and apps (like Price.com) can also help you find the best deals. You can even price compare through the Amazon app. Don’t be afraid to ask for price matching policies, as some stores will match or beat a competitor’s price (Target and Home Depot are two – read the fine print first for details.)
→ Use Price Alerts to Your Advantage
One of the best ways to get the biggest bang for your buck during Wayfair’s Way Day sale is to take advantage of price alerts. These nifty little tools can help you keep track of price drops and notify you when your favorite items go on sale.
You can continuously check Wayfair or search for the item through Google Shopping and have Google Watch for you. Here’s precisely how to do that.
→ Shop Early to Avoid Sold-Out Items
In addition to using price comparison sites and setting up price alerts, another essential tip for getting the best deals during Way Day is to shop early.
With Way Day being a limited-time sale event, getting a head start on the competition is crucial to avoid sold-out items. By shopping early, you not only increase your chances of finding the things you want, but you also have the advantage of comparing prices and deals before they disappear.
→ Be Mindful
I’ve noticed on Wayfair that sometimes the markdowns seem insane. Because the original price was insane. So, ask yourself, is this item worth the price even on sale? Don’t get me wrong, the deals are good. But that 85% markdown might actually be the right price for the item. Ignore the originals—and price check.
Way Day is truly the best time of the year to upgrade your home with unique furniture and decor deals. So, mark your calendars and get ready to shop on Way Day.
