Attention, Shoppers: IKEA Items Are Officially Available on Amazon Prime
If you’ve been following the latest from IKEA, you’ve likely already heard the news that the Swedish home goods store decided to start selling through third party retailers, inspiring hopeful rumors that the KALLAX and BEKVAM would soon be coming to Amazon. Lucky for us, that day has arrived sooner than we thought, and many IKEA items are now listed on Amazon.com, including some that are eligible for Amazon Prime. Rather than trek miles to the nearest IKEA, you can now get flat-pack favorites delivered to your door in less than two days.
While browsing the Prime-eligible picks, you may notice that the item prices are higher than the regular in-store prices, so it pays to compare the listed price with the delivery rate on IKEA.com. In general, it seems that when buying larger furniture, it pays to shop on Amazon to avoid the high delivery costs, but smaller items aren’t worth the Amazon Prime markup. For example, a $65 KALLAX bookcase is available for 3-day shipping via Amazon Prime for $140, while the same unit plus delivery totals $264 on IKEA.com. While shipping isn’t exactly “free” on IKEA’s Amazon Prime items, it could pay off if you want to skip those IKEA-induced couples’ fights, the hours spent wandering the maze-like aisles, and the cost of a rental truck. Looking to avoid all of the above? Shop these favorites from the comfort of your EKTORP sofa.
