My living room rug was over 12 years old and was all raggety on the corners and I was afraid someone was gonna fall when they tripped on the edge.
I perused Target and really wanted this rug:
The problem was, the total for the rug and rug pad* was:
And no matter how much I fussed and putzed around with coupon codes, that was the lowest I could get it.
So, I searched some more and found the exact same rug at Overstock. Total price for rug and rug pad* was:
Still too expensive.
So I hunted all around the web and found promo and coupon codes and got the total price down to:
So, that's my thrifty tip off the week - hunt around for promo and coupon codes because sometimes you can only use one coupon code, sometimes two of them work...you just have to play around with them. And Overstock's shipping was SO cheap - $2.95 !
I like it a lot, doesn't it match my couch nicely?
*Rug pad. I read reviews on Overstock and many people said the carpet was very thin and slid around their hardwood floors, so I got the rug pad. For myself, I don't think the rug is thin and it doesn't slide at all, so I could have saved myself the $50 rug pad. So if you're thinking of getting this rug, think twice about buying the rug pad right off the bat.
