Finding the Best Black Friday Couches

The bad news is that with the holiday season approaching, your house is about to turn into a non-stop carousel of drop-ins, visits, and one holiday party after another full of almost everyone you know. The good news? Well, once you get past the stress of them, holiday social events can be fun. And your friends will probably show up with lots of holiday goodies and wine so even if the parties aren’t fun, hey, at least there’s wine. The best news? Black Friday deals on furniture can help you get your place equipped for the busy holiday season and beyond.

Nothing will get your living room, great room, den or other entertaining rooms stocked with comfortable, quality furniture quite like Black Friday couches, sectionals and loveseats will. The best deals on furniture will no doubt come from big discount chain stores like Walmart and Target, which will be hoping to move couches and other living room furniture by offering at least 20-30% off and possibly free delivery from store or free shipping if you order online. But if you’re looking to update your home furnishings without laying down a lot of cash all at once, you’ll want a no money down deal.

With the possible exception of Kmart, Walmart and Sears, which offer layaway, your best bet for no money down deals is to go directly to furniture stores.  Raymour and Flanigan, for example, offer no money down so long as the savings you scoop up meet their minimum purchase requirement. If you want to go one better than that, Ashley Furniture Home Stores offers no money down with no minimum purchase and between 12 and 60 months of interest-free financing. Add Black Friday sales to that mix and it’s almost too good to be true. Your holiday party could be anchored by new furniture without you paying even a dollar up-front.

Black Friday furniture sales aren’t always about finding the absolute best price. If you’ve had your eye on something special from one of the more upscale furniture stores, Black Friday is still the time to buy. William Sonoma’s West Elm stores, for instance, offer one of their only sales of the entire year on Black Friday, in which you receive 10% off for purchases over $100, 15% off purchases over $250, and a whopping (for them) 20% off purchases over $500. Another catalog favorite, Crate and Barrel, offers a flat 15% off furniture.
