Floor Model Furniture 101

 One of the biggest lessons of frugal living is to plan ahead, find the lowest price, & get the best deal.  Unfortunately sometimes this just isn't a possibility.

When JC's Aunt Lynn & Uncle Steve needed a new desk chair for their office, so they headed to Staples.  While there Lynn found a nice desk chair, but they only had a floor model left.  The floor model was in good shape, it just had a little schmootz on the floor cushion, no big deal. 

The chair was $50 originally & after asking the floor manager for a price break the price was brought down 40% to $29.99.  Additionally Staples offers a furniture warranty, so for $4.99, Lynn & Steve bought a 3 year total replacement warranty if anything on the chair breaks.  A great deal for minimal effort!

When you don't have a lot of time to shop for a deal, buying a floor model is a great & extremely cheap way to buy new furniture.
