    They only use your email address for uniqueness; so join the even bigger family :-)

    I met a woman, who works in Public Svc
    in a small Outback town, we both miss
    access to IKEA.

    Why aren't there start-up's or other
    Forwarding co's, that ship IKEA stuff
    to rural & Outback AU…? :~/

      Ikea deliver so no need for a third party. Most areas I believe are covered. Plus there are thrid parties if you Google you can find them

      •  

        Maybe it's different now, but when I lived in Darwin, it was cheaper for us to buy all our furniture when we were down south and get it couriered up, the delivery fees from ikea were ridiculous.

    •  

      I've seen IKEA resellers on ebay sometimes. Super expensive and all that.

    To save you all the time and spam, it’s a generic code:

    IFW4637

    The barcode to scan in store.

      Oh my god, thank you.
      Absolute legend.

      so, does that mean we could technically use it over and over again?

    •  

      Cheers Cnut, looks like it would work without having to sign up and input a membership number!

      IKEA wanted to charge me a $20 service fee to buy one light bulb click and collect though. Not sure what that’s about…

    •  

      Registered and used the $10.

      After scanned the barcode at self service, the system needs staff to attend to approve it and scan your membership code.

    Oh bugger, not again.
    Last time this was OzBargained, they got rid of this promotion real fast. I am afraid my Broden ride is about to be over!

    This has been running for about 2.5 months (maybe more?) now and me and my missus have been visiting IKEA almost every week grabbing something good, always being "new" IKEA Family members.

    In my attempts to not get lynched by OzBargain for Brodening, I will share some tips to make the most of this deal:

    • Like @chrism238 said, only your email counts as a "unique" identifier and because IKEA is outsourcing their IT security department to the cheapest possible center in India, they do not bother to check for spammy or easy-to-abuse email addresses, like @airmail.cc, @420blaze.it, @goat.si, @tfwno.gf etc. so you can easily keep creating new email accounts
    • When registering, make the most of the auto-address-fill function in the registration form and just enter random numbers and choose a random address, just make sure it's in Australia. Nobody checks this anywhere.
    • Use a random Australian mobile phone number when registering. Nobody checks this anywhere.
    • Make sure you tick that you want to receive all the spam advertising material for your account to make sure you can receive the coupon.
    • After registering, the longest it took to receive the coupon was 10 minutes. If you haven't received it yet, you did something wrong or their system thinks you are trying to abuse this.
      In this situation, you can try updating your "Interests" in the profile and check random things you are "interested" in like bedroom, living room, bathroom, kids etc.
      If you still don't get the coupon email, try again with a new account.
    • If you look dodgy to the cashier, they will ask you to open the email in your phone to confirm you are a new member and not trying to abuse your friend's or someone's discount. Be prepared for this.
    • This can only be used once per new account and cannot be reused, thus, you need to keep making new accounts.

    Some top deals to consider:

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    •  

      how many times have you used the 10 dollars credit?

      •  

        Pretty sure more than 6 times each of us. But it's all done on new, throwaway accounts.

        •  

          Nice alot of effort I suppose for $10… takes like bloody 15 minutes to walk through the whole store. Unless you cut through the back registers or are already there shopping its not going to be the greatest incentive to rock up, park, walk through the store, grab item, pray that a staff member wont haggle you for your email… Will try it on food :)!

    •  

      Wonder if they take notice of the amount of times a credit card has been used with the discount, but I guess you could always use cash in that case.

    •  

      really curious, was having a chat to my missus about this. why do you feel the need to constantly use it and get new things and take advantage of this type of system?

      it’s just being greedy at this point if you’ve used it 6 times to get free things, personally i don’t understand the point of it.

        Uh oh, now I am in trouble, haha!

        Well, it's a fun game to me - figure out how the system works and find the most efficient way to abuse it.
        As you abuse more and more systems or those "new member" discounts, you start to see the same patterns and you can find ways to do something more easier next time. So this was another experience for me.
        Also, we didn't always get items to barely hit the $10 - we also bought some king size quilt covers and pillowcases, knives and items costing more than $20.

        We had 2 ugly old lights in our bedroom, so we upgraded it to that upstanding light.
        We had those $1 buckets from SCA that we used as bins in some rooms - we now upgraded it to those Small Pedal bins.

        It's not that we are poor, I just seem to be addicted to squeezing out the most I can from the situation. We are on OzBargain after all!

          nahh don’t stress im not gonna report you haha

          but to me, as much as you call it an ‘experience’, it’s still abusing the system, and it’s the greed of such actions that ruin it for others when a new member deal is removed early or a deal is revoked.

          •  

            @salemance: "Abusing the system", what, a whole bunch of effort for small change from a multinational worth 100 billion who doesn't give a cost-benefit single shit about idiosyncratic outliers?

            Get over yourself.

      •  

        forgive him/her salesmance. s/he is from sydney.

    •  

      When I started to scan it 2 people came over to "help". It worked and then before paying the machine asked for a staff member to approve the discount.
      Not that easy to broden with the level of intervention required.

        Rookie mistakes that we also did. Here's some tips how to avoid it:

        • Use self-checkout and pay by card. They usually only have one staff who is always in a rush so they will be more motivated to just "approve" it and keep going
        • Scan your items first, scan your membership second, and scan the coupon last - once they get the prompt, they will see that you have done everything else and they will just "approve" it
        • IKEA seems to be (mostly, atleast to us) sending emails with errors, usually with a missing membership QR code or attached outside the message. Some emails I had to forward to myself after downloading the QR code attachment and inserting it inside the email text to look more legit.
        • QR\Barcode scanners are a bit finicky - they will not scan a QR\barcode that has a black background around it or if it is too much zoomed in. Make sure you phone's screen is on maximum brightness too!

        This way everything can be done quickly and with no problems with minimal staff intervention.

        •  

          Thanks for the tips!
          I think one to add is to go at a busier time when the check outs are all open. I went around 8pm, not the best.

    •  

      I may start getting my shelves. They're $60 total, but come in pieces you can get individually. I could go each week and get them bit by bit, I can't set them up until Feb anyway.

      •  

        haha which shelf is it? why not just go multiple times in one day over a crowded weekend(reducing the amount of visits)?

        •  

          I was actually thinking I could enlist some friends to help, but then I thought they'd probably want to get stuff. I'd need to pay $10 each for the sets of shelves, the other bits would be free if I get them with other items. I actually want 2 of them, so I could get the cross bars together. I'll probably just end up going with a friend and getting both of them for $50 each.

            @Miss B: Yeah that might not be a bad idea, getting friends along to do it. Also, do multiple trips on something you miss out.

            They change people at the self server every half an hour i think.

    I received an email. Is the barcode the membership card and the QR code the voucher?
