Ikea Buy Back Scheme: Get Money For Your Old Furniture

If you’ve got any Ikea furniture lying around the house that you don’t want anymore, why not sell it back to Ikea? If it’s in good condition, Ikea will take it off your hands and give you a voucher, worth up to 50% of the original price. This is a win win, as you get vouchers for your old bits, and the second-hand furniture will then be available for other customers to shop, so it will go to a good home!

So how does it work?

If you go to the Ikea website, you can use the estimator tool to get an idea of your furniture’s value. This will vary depending on the condition of your items, but Ikea have said you could get back up to £250 on a voucher! The better condition your furniture is in, the higher the percentage of the original RRP you’ll get back, with a cap of 50%.

Once you have your estimate, if you’re happy, you can take your furniture into your nearest store (make sure it’s fully assembled). When you fill in the online form, you should get an 'estimation number', and you should make a note of this, so that when you go to the store they'll be able to find your form. Take your items to the returns desk, and an employee will check it over, and make a decision on their final offer for the furniture. You can either accept and take home a voucher gift card, or you can say, no thanks!

What to bear in mind?

Before making use of the buy back scheme, it’s worth looking at Gum Tree, eBay, Facebook Marketplace and other reseller sites to check you can’t get a better rate elsewhere.

Your items need to be fully assembled, in good condition, clean, and unmodified, to qualify for the buy back scheme. Not everything from Ikea is eligible for the scheme, so take a look at the website and it you can’t see your furniture listed, it likely isn’t included currently. You can see a full list of what Ikea say no to below, but with specific items it's a case of looking to see if it's on their list.


Here is a more detailed run down of what Ikea are currently saying no to.

- Modified/non-assembled products

- PAX wardrobes

- Baby products e.g cots, mattresses etc.

- Non-furniture items

- Products that have been used outside

- Any products containing glass

- Kitchens

- Soft furnishings or upholstered products
