As the cost of living continues to rise, IKEA Australia is helping its loyalty members save on their next IKEA purchase by providing an extra 50% in value through its buy-back service.  

Until 25 September 2023, IKEA Family members can trade in their pre-loved IKEA furniture to receive a refund card with an additional 50% in value – helping them replace the old with the new.  

The limited-time buy-back offer is part of the IKEA commitment to providing stylish, functional and affordable home furnishings for customers.

IKEA Australia service experiences leader, Christopher Nilsson said, “We know that Australians are continuing to feel the pinch due to the rising cost of living. With households impacted nationwide, we want to ensure our customers are still able to make the most of their home through the year-round affordable products IKEA provides as well as limited time offers like 50% additional value.

“Through the buy-back service, customers can not only make a sustainable choice by giving their pre-loved IKEA item a second life, they will also get an IKEA refund card with a dollar value so they can shop with us straight away.”

The IKEA buy-back service generated more than 28,000 quotes through the estimator tool in the 2023 financial year. The top five most common categories of pre-loved furniture Australians are bringing back to IKEA for a second life are: dining, storage items, living room seating, workspaces and bedroom furniture.  

To determine an item’s buy-back value, customers can use the online estimator tool, before taking their assembled IKEA furniture with the estimate to their preferred IKEA store. An IKEA co-worker will assess the furniture in person and give the final agreed value on an IKEA refund card.

The IKEA buy-back offer is available to IKEA Family members when attaining a buy-back service quote between 18 and 29 August 2023.
