"Ikea, how may I help you?"
"Yes, I was wondering, do you have Price Protection if I buy something today and it goes on sale, for example, tomorrow?"
"Okay, thank you. Goodbye."
See how simple it is to get an accurate answer? That should be your first step before posting a question here, since the answer you NEED could be dependent on other factors.

Even easier. If you can post here you can go to their website, e.g. here:
If you can return items then you should be able to get IKEA to price protect recent purchases too. That's a lot less hassle for them then processing a return.6. Can I return items?
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, return the item within 45 days of the purchase for an exchange or a refund. Please be sure to have your receipt and the original packaging at the time of your visit.

I know people that have done this, so yes you can do a price adjustment on the day the bench goes on sale.

Great ethical move—NOT!canabiz wrote: ↑Jun 30th, 2014 8:49 pmI bought a TV bench last week, put it together but found something identical in the As-Is section today for a pretty sweet discount so I picked that up and returned the original item.
Hassle-free and I saved just a bit over $100 with less than an hour of work. I'll take it.

What do you expect a reasonable RFDer do in that situation?bylo wrote: ↑Jul 1st, 2014 9:27 amGreat ethical move—NOT!
So now they have to disassemble the one you bought originally, then sell the used bench at a huge discount in the As-Is section, thus losing time and money on both benches.
And people wonder why stores have to toughen up their return/exchange policies...

As I said, it's a matter of ethics. We know what "reasonable" RFDers would do in those sorts of situations because they brag about it on RFD. But that doesn't make it ethical or right. And it also doesn't help encourage stores to maintain liberal return policies.
I didn't suggest that it was illegal but rather that it was unethical. There's a difference.Not very often but I try to save $ for my family (legally) and if the opportunities present themselves, I am not going to say no.
