Ikea's 75th anniversary is here, and to celebrate, the second-happiest place on Earth is holding a fun extravaganza this weekend. Not all stores will be participating, so you'll want to check your location to make sure. Look under the "Events" tab to find out whether or not your store is getting in on the party.
First up, you can look forward to a gift card giveaway, but you'll need to be up bright and early. The first 75 Ikea Family members at participating stores on Saturday, August 18th will receive a free $20 Ikea gift card. You can join Ikea Family for free if you aren't already a member. The membership includes free coffee or tea, monthly product discounts, extra Småland time, price protection, and more. The store says the gift card line will start at 9AM on Saturday, but you'll likely want to get there earlier if you're dead-set on getting that sweet free money.
Scanning your Ikea Family card will also enter you for the chance to win a $75 gift card. Participating stores will have ten to give away. One lucky member nationwide will win a $750 Ikea gift card, too. Not too shabby for a simple scan.
Aside from all the free money giveaways, Ikea will be offering spin art and indoor games from 12PM to 2PM, and BOGO free desserts in the store restaurant from 2PM to 4PM. Basically, prepare to spend your entire day at Ikea, which shouldn't be too hard.
All of this celebration is also surrounding the launch of the limited-edition pictured Gratulera collection, which will be available in-store this weekend.
Make sure to double-check that your local store is participating, and have fun!
