So how'd we do as far as savings go? I think we did pretty well.
We bought the sofa official on Sunday for $1194. We used a $100 coupon and 0% financing, they went hand in hand. The store mailed the coupons with their catalog and to be used with their CC. It was officially expired but they did us the favor since we were "loyal" customers. This is th first and only time we shopped there. Our neighbors gave us the coupon. The $1194 included $99 for delivery and $103 for scotchgard warranty. Trust me we'll use it with two dogs. So the actual price of the sofa was $992. Not a bad deal.
Second we purchased our valor Legend G3 fireplace. Total cost was $2709 including face, unit, installation, chimney liner, etc. The unit alone was $2109 and $600 for installation. We shopped around at 4 different stores and this was the best deal overall for installation and unit purchase. However it turns out well be spending a lot more because of other issues.
Third we purchased our bedroom set from IKEA for $667 - $25 coupon for a grand total of $642. This included the bed, two nightstands, and chest of dressers. It should last until we move out of here, and because it's assembled furniture we were able to get it up the stairs although we are somewhat worried about having to disassemble to get it down.
Finally we bought a shopvac from home depot for $69 - 10% discount = $62. This was a necessary purchase for the installation of our fireplace. I guess I'll discuss our financial options later.
So we spent $2709 + $1194 + $642 +$62 = $4607 tax free. That means we saved $230.35. Is it a lot? I guess so, it's enough to have paid for the shopvac and some of the bedroom set. But it really made me feel better about purchasing all of the items that we have wanted and planned on buying this year. The only impulse purchase might have been the shopvac, but it turns out that as we work on the gas fireplace it'll be necessary.
