9 top tips for White Wednesday shopping

Who knew at the beginning of 2020 how much time we would spend at home this year? Which is why sale shopping for the home is especially exciting at this moment, as we swap our party shoes for comfy bedroom slippers.

With White Wednesday, our massive yearly event, you get the chance to get some of the best discounts and offers around. But how do you ensure you that you shop wisely and that the items you buy are exactly what you wanted, and within your budget? Take a look at what the pros say:


1. Plan to shop big furniture items

Always wanted a new sofa or wardrobe? It pays to wait for the really big offers. Look out for flat discounts and extra codes as they really help you save. Big 6-door wardrobes or 8-seater dining sets especially will be at better prices during this time.

2. Enjoy the Home Box promise of quality

Buying something is easy, but living with it is a different story. With Home Box however, you enjoy numerous benefits such as the lowest furniture price guarantee, free assembly and more. You can read all about our Promise Plus here.


3. Keep your wishlist ready

If you love browsing (and dreaming) like us, you already have a long list in your head. Make sure you don’t lose track of it! Simply save the furniture, décor & other home essentials to your favourites, here’s how.

a. Sign in to your account. If you don’t have an account, you can easily create one by clicking on the My account tab on your app – or from the top of your page on our desktop site.

b. Go the page of the product you like.

c. Click on the outline of the heart next to the product name.

d. It will turn red to show that it’s been added to your Favourites!

To find the product later, go to Favourites under My Account (for desktop) or tap on the heart icon on your Home Box app’s home screen (for app users).


4. Add to cart in advance

During sales, items typically go out of stock super-fast. So to avoid disappointment, start adding items to your cart a couple of days beforehand. Once the sale starts, all you need to do is checkout. Easy peasy!


5. Turn on push notifications

Turn on your notifications so you see every offer, right when it drops. You will also be alerted about special codes and extra discounts. And once you’ve placed your order, you will receive order status updates so you’re always in the know.

6. Link your Shukrans

If you’re a Shukran member, make sure you link your Shukran account with your account. You can do this from the Shukran tab under My Account in a couple of easy steps – just make sure your phone’s nearby as we’ll send you a verification code.


If you aren’t a Shukran member yet, what are you waiting for? You can sign up for Shukran from the Home Box site itself and once you do, you’ll be earning Shukrans online – which you can later turn into discounts.


7. Use this opportunity to revamp your décor

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to change it all up? We would! So if you’re tired of the same colours, your sofa needs new cushions or your wall needs jazzing up, start scrolling new décor. Go for it we say!

8. Get your winter shopping done

There’s already a chill in the air, isn’t there? Although Home Box has options for every budget, typically comforter sets with many pieces or plush blankets can be a little more expensive. Stock up now so you can have one in the wash, one in the cupboard and one in use.


9. Indulge yourself and your home

All of us have a list of “I’ll get them later” items. It could be a full matched set of kitchen containers to replace the odd jars you have currently. Or a fun kids’ bed shaped like a car. A second shoe rack because you can’t stop hoarding shoes. A TV unit that can stand up to your newer, bigger TV. A cake stand to show off all the baking you perfected during lockdown. Well now’s the time to get them all.
