The furniture industry is not immune from the inundation of free offers and flashy ads out there on the internet and in brick and mortar stores. These ads are designed to catch your attention and some are merely tricks to get your business.
We all know, there is no free lunch. In order to make sure you are looking at a legitimate offer, you must evaluate all the circumstances of the offer and read the fine print. In some cases, you can buy furniture in bulk and receove additional free pieces because of your large order. This is the age of the internet and computers, which has led to an increase in the computer furniture industry. Everyone wants a piece of the pie, there for gimmicks are more common in the industry now.
It is always preferable to visit the dealer in person. Have a detailed discussion with the salesperson and find out exactly what you will get and how much you have to pay for it. Then do your product research to find out if you are really getting a good deal. Also, a good question to ask the salesperson is where did the furniture come from? Is it used or refurbished? Asking the right questions is perhaps the most important aspect to consider when buying computer furniture. This is part of becoming an educated consumer. Obviously, no company is going to make a spectacular offer without any benefit to them. So as a consumer it is your job to figure out when considering free offers, what is the benefit for the company? Sometimes, just getting your contact information gives the company the benefit of being able to target you in future ad campaigns. To you, it may be worth it to receive junk mail and email in the future to get a free product right now.
There are situations when a furniture dealer has incentive to give away good deals. Maybe a product ine is being discontinued and they need to get rid of current inventory. Or it is possible that they have held on to some furniture pieces for too long.
In many industries, much more money is made from financing than from actually selling a product for profit. So they may give you half-off if you will finance with them. There is a reason they do this! You may end up spending 500% + more than what you originally bought the product for. This is not a good deal for you! However, if you have the money for the furniture then it is a good deal to get there discounted price, finance the purchase, and then pay it all off in the first month (avoiding all interest costs). I hope that you will take the time to become an educated consumer and not be a sucker for furniture dealer gimmicks.
