Double Buyback Value for Your Old IKEA Furniture @ IKEA (Free Family Membership Required)

2433

Something a little different from IKEA. Great way to recycle your old furniture.

We believe there’s a more sustainable way to save money on Black Friday. Instead of flash sales and big discounts, we want to buy something from you. Maybe there’s an old BILLY bookcase in your home that you no longer need. Or maybe it’s just that your current NORDVIKEN dining table isn’t big enough for your ever-growing family.

We’ll buy back your old IKEA furniture, and promise to find someone who will give it a second life!

In return, you’ll earn an IKEA credit to spend on something you need. And if you’re an IKEA Family member, we’ll pay you double the normal buy back price between the period of 24 November – 3 December, 2020. That’s a better deal for the planet, and your wallet.

This is part of Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals for 2020

    Is there such a thing as old IKEA furniture? There's new and then there is landfill.

    •  

      I have a bookcase and a sideboard I still use that I purchased in 2005. Before that, around 2002 I purchased a desk and a MIKAEL table top organiser that I sold this year for $40. Still have the table! I have moved at least 6 times since then.

  •  

    IKEA will definitely offer you 50% of the original price if ur furniture is in pristine condition (like new), and will put it next day for 20% off original in their used furniture selling lot. And some one will excitedly jump on it, few of us ozbargainers perhaps.

    It's not always happy for environment, it's money that matters too. It's fair at their end to be honest.

      It does make sense, they aren't doing this for charity. Those that complain that they can offload it somewhere with higher offer would probably doing the same thing had the role were reversed :s

  •  

    This could be good for me. I find it hard to sell furniture on Gumtree, at least for a reasonable price. No one wants a two year old coffee table original priced over $200 for $40. How low can IKEA's offer be?

  •  

    I always wanted to do this to upgrade my computer desk however it just seems like a huge hassle to disassemble, transport and reassemble at ikea.

    This is bullshit. I had so many pieces of IKEA and they were in decent condition, ie. you will want them as they look like almost new if I did not tell you they are old. I bought a small table down to try. The ladies there were so picky, look at the side and said a slight scratch. My goodness. Then what for would you ask people to state condition and I stated as a little scratch, so they literally rejected. I tried with my next table, and it was the same. So I know that they are looking for those appearing in showflats, bought by property agents. Perfect i.e. not being used at all kind. It just wasted my time bringing down. So not worth it. I sold online instead!

      Yeap, and there lays the problem. Total inconsistancy. It depends who looks at your item and what mood they are in.
      In the past you could send 4 x photos and they would access using those. Much better idea as then no wasted trip as long as items were as described and shown in pics. Current method can be hit and miss and very much down to the persons mood.

  •  

    It's funny how big companies use crap like ''environment and sustainability'' as argument for profit.

  •  

    Wow. My 2*4 Expedit is worth $39, so by this offer 78. A brand new Kallax (The equivalent new version) is $80. That's pretty good if I want to get rid of it.

  •  

    What are they doing with the furniture they buy back? Recycling? Giving to charity? Or do they have a "used" section at their stores?

    •  

      Used section in store (Rhodss NSW has at least)

      •  

        Thanks. What sort of discount?

        Anyone confirm if North Lakes has a used section?

        • +1 vote

          They all have a used section.
          Discounts depend on how much stuff they have to get rid of, and quality of product.
          Can be 10% off for small items in new condition, can 90% off for large/unpopular/well used items

          Anyone confirm if North Lakes has a used section?

          Yep I always check it out on the way through - to the right just before the checkouts

    In Victoria there is currently a message saying the buy back is unavailable in Victoria. Does anybody know whether buy back will be available before Black Friday?

    I have a couple of items that I'm more interested in just getting rid of than getting any sort of monetary return on them. The option to get rid of them all in one go would be awesome but I'm not sure if they will change this policy before then.

    • +2 votes

      Yeah in the same boat. With VIC virtually almost zero cases (not sure if its related at all), hoping they bring this back for next week…

    •  

      The website has just updated saying that the service will recommence in Vic on the 24th.

      •  

        Thanks for the update.

      •  

        Thanks for the update. Great to know!

  •  

    I checked for my office chair, if the condition is as new, I will get the same amount ($300) for that chair. Not a bad deal at all IMO.

    •  

      lower your expectations for them considering it as new

      •  

        I'm just testing, won't actually bring it in. It's just a few months old so if I want to get rid of it, I should use the 365 days return instead of this.

  •  

    Tried to list a sofa that I think was made before 2000…not listed on their website. It has a painter's rainbow colour…(only saw simple colours in stores). Must be before my time as I picked it up from the street and shocked to learn it is from Ikea.

    The quote for a mint condition Nordmyra chair is $52.

    Nordmyra chair only costs $49 to buy new from IKEA…

  •  

    How do we return bed frames?? disassemble at home and put on your wagon, assemble back in IKEA, I can do it, it just wired…

    •  

      same question …

    •  

      Yeah for most of the furniture it is just not practical to transport there unless you happen work as a removalist and own a truck.

    •  

      It will take the traffic space assembling the bed at IKEA returns counter.

  •  

    Anyone tested this yet?

    •  

      Waiting for your review 🙄

    I brought LINNMON / ALEX table.
    Condition was really good. No scuff.

    Priced at $179 new.

    Website said I will get up to $162.

    It was evaluated $110.

    •  

      So without the double buyback value is $55

      •  

        Yes

    •  

      It was evaluated $110.

      Did they say why?

      •  

        Not really. The lady just looked at it and said the price to her colleague and moved on to the next person.
        It was quite busy.

        I'm quite happy with the evaluation.
        It's roughly the same price if I sell it on gumtree/fb market place - minus the hassle/haggle/no show etc.

        Just lower down your expectation from their online's estimate.

    Anyone has the issue with joining ikea family? I am getting "Form not submitted" "Validation failed" error…

    Just finished a lunch run with the missus - sold the gamelby table and nesttun single bed for the quoted price. had to assemble the thing in store, but well worth the trouble for $300 funny money to spend later. Cheers OP!

    edit- Rhodes NSW, was a quick assesment by the guys. line was busy once i finished assembling the single bed

  •  

    Those that have recently done this, I assume they will give you IKEA gift card in return of the Buy-Back value; what's the expiry of that gift card?

    • +2 votes

      The IKEA refund cards are redeemable for a period no longer than 3 years from the date of issue.

      •  

        so after I did the quote/estimation and has that QR code, I am now good to go to Ikea with the unassembled products?

        •  

          They only assess assembled items.. You need to re assemble it at IKEA.

          •  

            @brokenglish: sorry, i meant to say assembled products; not sure why i wrote unassembled. silly me. thanks matey!

    Just back from IKEA. They gave me $70 for a $59 chair that I bought 3 years ago. Also gave me $84 for an open shelving unit (also bought 3 years ago for $140 total including all internal units) that has one damaged door. Honestly, I had very little hope they would even accept it so pretty happy with the result.

    •  

      Do they give you one gift card or two?

      •  

        I got two different ones, but I reckon that might be just because missus returned one of them in a separate transaction.

  •  

    Beware that the dimension of a unit must be an exact match. They refused my Billy bookcase as the one listed on their page has the ‘extension unit’ while mine doesn’t. This means that IKEA won’t take it at all, even I offered a free recycle.

    I hired a driver to help bring furnitures to IKEA and he already left the scene. I eventually decide to purchase an extension unit in store and assembled it onto the bookcase on the spot to make it qualify.

    I’m aware that it’s mostly my ignorance, but based my experience and how I was treated, I’m gonna give this a negative.

    • +1 vote

      Yeah, they can be very rude. Have been there a few times over the years so expect an "Evil Eye" from them. I give them one first so that they know that I know what to expect. In turn it's then all smiles, a chat, coffee and all (not) :-)

  •  

    Just did a sofa and a bed frame at Springvale. The transport was the hardest part followed by reassembling everything. Luckily there was no queue. Had low expectations but the staff were very kind. 10/10 would do this again. Better than landfill.

    …generate your quote by 3 Dec to be eligible for the offer and bring the furniture back to us by 31 Dec 2020.

    •  

      I wonder if i can generate one QR code for all my items and bring back my items in multiple trips on different days using the same QR code?

      •  

        Yes you can. Make sure all your items are listed under the QR code.

        •  

          Thanks also confirmed by the IKEA staff I saw.

      Thanks for sharing

  •  

    Why isn’t this available for Victoria?

    I can’t seem to be able to select Springvale or Richmond.

    •  

      I'm hoping its temporary glitch. I went to Ikea Richmond yesterday only to be told no buyback on weekends, because too many people. Asked to come back during weekday. Thankfully I went down first without bringing my furniture down. I saw some others walk away with furniture assembled. Hope it comes back tomorrow.

      •  

        Can you just rock up with a QR code?

        I can see in the system that it asks you to select the store and date for when you plan to drop it off before it will generate a QR code for you. At the moment, the 2 Vic stores aren't selectable plus it seems only Nov 30 is selectable in the date picker.

    Went to the Logan store this Monday morning. Staff there not so nice with a negative altitude even before looking at my used jokkmokk set.

    Carefully looking for "scratches" that are really hard to see due to its natural colour. Yet the staff there managed to find "many scratches".

    I end up getting $80, lower than the lowest possible estimate you can get online ($84).

    OK they figured out I did a 30 min drive to get there.

    What's worse was the staff telling me they can only sell this later for $40? For a moment I was like "perhaps I should spend $40 to buy it again and return again for $80 and keep doing this over and over to make a huge profit?" Too good to be true so they were probably lying.

    Had a good experience at IKEA logan - returned a sofa we bought in June for more than we paid - assessed "As new"

    Could buy some things, assemble and return: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/587346

    Or find some items on Facebook/Gumtree to do this for IKEA credit
