If you’re like me, you like to save money whenever possible.
My wife and I were recently shopping for a new outdoor furniture set at Ashley Furniture when I saw a man dressed in fatigues walk in.
He went straight to the sales desk, was there for about 10 min., and then he was out the door.
It got me thinking, does Ashley Furniture offer a military discount?
I went up to the clerk behind the counter to inquire, and was met with a stern look and an unfortunate answer:
Ashley Furniture does NOT, indeed, offer a military discount.
This goes for both online purchases, as well as in-store purchases.
The clerk told me they actually used to offer one a few years back, and she believed it was something like a 5% discount.
In any event, I don’t give up easily. 🙂
I decided to do a bit of research and find other ways members of the military, both retired veterans and active-duty, can save some money at the furniture outlet.
It turns out, they actually offer a TON of ways to save on your next purchase.
Here’s what I found out:
Ashley Furniture Discount Option #1 – Spin The Wheel (10% Off Coupon Code)
Another great way members of the military and their families can get a discount is by signing up for their email list.
It will entitle you to 10% off your next online purchase, and from what I can tell it doesn’t expire.
Here’s how to redeem it step-by-step:
Step 1: Click Here to visit the official Ashley Furniture website.
Step 2: At the very top of the page, you’ll see a little box that says either “Unlock savings” or “Spin To Win”. Click on it.
Step 3: Enter in your email, click the checkmark box, and click let’s play.
Once you do and click “let’s play”, the wheel spins and lands on a prize. The prizes listed include:
- 5% off
- 10% off
- A surprise
I tried it 3 different times with 3 different emails, and every time I did that it landed on the 10% off.
Step 4: Login to your email and look for an email with the subject line “Welcome to the family, it’s time to save.”
Step 5: Open that email and write down the promo code.
And that’s it!
Whenever you go to checkout with your purchase, simply enter in the promo code on the checkout page and it will automatically take 10% off your order.
You can use the promo code for all online purchases, excluding things like:
- Create Your Style Your Way items
- HomeStore specials
- Event featured items
- Online specials
- Hot Buys
- Bonus deals
- Daily deals
- And certain types of mattresses
Ashley Furniture Discount Option #2 – Online Deals
What struck me as sort of odd about Ashley Furniture was the sheer amount of discounts they offered on their website vs. ordering in their store.
Typically, furniture companies like this want to get you in the store so their high-pressure salesman can sink their teeth in.
This was actually NOT the case with Ashley Furniture.
They offer a number of discounts that are only available online, including:
Outdoor Hot Buys
The outdoor hot buys are items that, wait for it, are for outdoors! Who would have thought?!
They include a limited number of items such as:
- Peachtone swivel chairs
- Umbrella accessories
- Partanna outdoor dining table with umbrella
- Moresdale chair with cushion
When they say you’re saving big, they’re not lying!
For example, a 2 piece set of the Peachtone Swivel Chairs listed above retails for $546.99 on Targets website.
That exact same set on the Ashley Furniture website retails for a whopping $270.
With deals like this, who even needs a military discount!
This actually worked out absolutely perfect for us because we were going to Ashley Furniture specifically to look for outdoor furniture.
Keep in mind that the outdoor hot buys change on a regular basis, so what you see today might not be there tomorrow!
Click Here to see what Outdoor hot buys are available right now.
For the average Ashley Furniture goer, this is the section that you should be checking out the most.
They have huge discounts on everything from bed sets, to dressers / drawers, 5-piece comforter sets, and even area rugs!
I’m not an impulse buyer…
However, my wife on the other hand, is!
I almost had to literally drag her out of the hot buys section before she attempted to max out our credit cards!
Again, keep in mind that this list changes on a weekly, and sometimes even daily, basis.
So if you see something you like, don’t spend too much time thinking about it.
It might be gone before you know it!
If you’re in the market for a new mattress, you’re in luck.
Ashley Furniture offers some very generous discounts on a wide variety of mattresses, including:
- Sealy Blue Mesa
- Sealy Grand Mesa
- Bonita Springs plush twin
- Off brand memory foam twin
- And several other leading brands
Howeever, keep in mind that some of the mattress brands are excluded from the discount
These include specific mattresses like:
- Beautyrest Black
- Sealy Conform
- Stearns & Foster
- Serta iComfort
- Sealy Hybrid
Obviously this list is subject to change, so don’t quote me on anything!
It’s best to check with your individual store, they’ll have the answers to all of your questions.
Ashley Furniture Discount Option #3 – Veterans / Memorial Day Sale
Another way you can save some money shopping at Ashley furniture is waiting for one of their Veterans Day or Memorial Day Sale.
While these sales are open to the general public, they are clearly meant to honor the sacrifice of those that have fought and died for this country.
The discounts for Memorial Day are pretty similar to those you would find on Veterans day, and can be anywhere from as little as 5% off to as much as 60% off.
Again, it all depends on what you’re buying.
During this years Ashley Furniture memorial day sale, they offered discounts on over 350 items.
They ranged from things like a Darcy Sofa, to a Kisper End table, to even a set of lanterns.
Nearly all of the items were only available for purchase on their website, and included free in home delivery from UPS.
Their Veterans Day sale offers a slightly smaller number of items, but the items they do offer at a substantial discount included high priced items like:
- Bolanburg Dining Room Server
- Larusi 2-piece sectional with chaise lounge
- Bolanburg Display Cabinet
- Lakeleigh Dresser
- Torcello Loveseat
Some items during the Ashley Furniture Veterans day sale had savings of as much as nearly $1,000 off the original price.
These tend to be higher ticket items like 5 and 6 piece sectionals, as well as entertainment consoles.
Fathers Day Discount
Since it is Fathers day weekend, I figured I would put a quick blurb about it.
Obviously this is limited to a short 3 day period, but Ashley Furniture does provide a discount on Fathers Day weekend.
From their website, here’s the details:
Use code: FATHERSDAY for EXTRA 10% off at checkout online only. Previous purchases excluded. Cannot be combined with any other offer or discount. While supplies last. Discount offers exclude CREATE Your Style Your Way and other custom products, HomeStore Specials, Event Featured items, Online Specials, Hot Buys, Bonus Deals, Daily Deals, Outlet, Beautyrest Black®, Sealy Conform™, Tempur-Pedic®, Stearns & Foster®, Serta® iComfort® and Sealy® Hybrid™ Home Delivery and handling charges. Offer valid for sales within Alaska, Hawaii and the 48 contiguous United States. Offer expires 6/17/19 at 5:45am EST.
Eligibility And Terms and Conditions
Obviously, when it comes to a large purchase (like furniture), there’s always the fine print.
In general, the terms and conditions of Ashley Furniture discounts can be broken down as follows:
- You can’t combine discounts with any coupons or other offers
- Prices vary from store to store. If you’re in Hawaii, you’ll pay more than if you’re in Kansas.
- Offers expire. The date of expiration varies depending on the discount.
- You can’t receive a discount on items you already purchased. The coupons and deals above are only for new purchases.
There’s a good chance that Ashley Furniture may bring back their military discount in the future.
At least that’s what the clerk at the store told me.
If / when they do, I will most certainly update this page with whatever they’re offering.
In the meantime, the deals and coupons above will help you save as much as possible.
I hope it helps you with your purchase, and if you have any questions be sure to leave it below!
