When shopping back-to-school sales for furniture, there are two words to zero in on: dorm room. Also: “college,” “campus,” etc. Obviously, if you need to get your kid a new Trapper Keeper (assuming those are still a thing??) that’s a different story, but for discounted bedding, storage, even art and small appliances you should definitely be shopping dorm room back-to-school sales.
Tucked between the water pitchers and jersey sheet sets are gems galore – like this cushy memory foam mattress that’s just $215 right now. Whatcha waiting for? Here are 8 of our favorite back-to-school sales to pilfer for home decor.
Amazon: Amazon’s “Off to College” section is a treasure trove of everything from smart home to tabletop, bedding, and even cookware – with 200+ products marked down. amazon.com
Bed Bath and Beyond: Should you still be in possession of your .edu email address, it’ll get you 20% off the “Campus Ready” section at BBB. bedbathandbeyond.com
Dormify: You do not need to be a 21-year-old to enjoy such decor delights as adhesive poster-hangers and tie-dye duvet covers, which is why the 25% off back-to-school sale at this dorm room retailer (using the code 25OFF) is so great. dormify.com
Macys: While you can definitely use the code BTS to take an extra 20% off select back-to-school styles at Macy’s, they’re mostly deals on clothes and kids backpacks – but luckily, they’re also having something called The Big Home Sale (!) with over 40,000 products marked down. macys.com
Overstock: Whether you want a new desk or a fully upholstered, tufted bed frame, you can probably find it in Overstock’s Back to School zone (all of which is 15% off right now). overstock.com
Target: Whether you want new appliances, towels, food storage, or snacks (yes, snacks), you’ll find a world of options in Target’s hugely discounter College Kitchen Dining line. target.com
Walmart: Scour Walmart’s “Back to College” section for lower prices on bedding, furniture, cleaning supplies, and more. The time to snag a Shark stick vacuum, currently $100 off, is now. walmart.com
Urban Outfitters: It might be called the “On Campus,” event, but Urban Outfitters’ dorm room decor has plenty that would work in your grown-up house as well. We’re particularly into their storage solutions, but also these two-toned embroidered pillows are currently 2 for $79.
