IKEA will pay you to return old furniture to select stores

If you’re tired of looking at the old furniture you bought last year at IKEA, the retailer has announced that it will now pay customers to bring back the old furniture.

The IKEA buy-back and resell option is now available for 37 of its stores in the United Statesincluding Burbank, Costa Mesa, Covina and San Diego.

To help pave the way for a sustainable lifestyle, the company has brought back the initiative that was launched at the end of last year.

How it works?

You start by filling out a form on The IKEA website to receive an estimate of the redemption value of your furniture by email. Customers are asked to bring a copy of their quote, buy-back number and fully assembled furniture to your participating IKEA store where an employee will assess the buy-back value of the furniture.

When you redeem, you’ll get store credit and your furniture will get a second life in the As Is department.

According to IKEA, the following product categories are currently not eligible for the furniture buyback service:
