    Plz tell me more about 365 days return policy. I want to exchange my bed frame

    After my last try at Ikea, where I never found area 6, or anyone to ask where it was, even with a map in hand, I said "NO. TOO MUCH".

    Wandering around because Ikea believes you want to, and having no one to ask, this last time I managed to go back the way I came and leave.

    Never had this problem in Pittsburgh Ikea or Cincinnati Ikea, just my hometown’s Ikea. And no, I refuse to travel hours to those Ikeas.

    I live in North Dakota, no IKEA’s or much of anything else you talk about here but always love watching your videos.

  4. Andrei Lucaci on April 13, 2023 at 9:41 am

    Ikea, not Aikea

  5. madmadmal on April 13, 2023 at 9:42 am

    So none of these are things Ikea doesn’t want you to know. Good info in general but false title doesn’t endear me to like or subscribe.

  6. HappyComfort on April 13, 2023 at 9:42 am

    Thanks so much for the great tips!🥳👍🌷

    Once you build the furniture you won’t be able to place it back in your vehicle unless you have a big enough truck suv and is like impossible to take apart

  8. Zalazar on April 13, 2023 at 9:46 am

    lol the as-is is all chinese couples

  9. Jazzatic2011 on April 13, 2023 at 9:49 am

    I don’t where you found an ikea map that has a straight line for the sections. 1 I don’t see what difference the short cut makes. 2 I wouldn’t have thought they’d make a floor map like this 🤔

  10. Xrrris Mickey on April 13, 2023 at 9:49 am

    The vortex maze of IKEA keeps mer out of there but they do have helpful stuff

  11. ChrisFitTaylor on April 13, 2023 at 9:52 am

    I just purchased those same 3 plants from ikea in person 2 days ago for $5 and not $13. No thanks.

  12. Artist on April 13, 2023 at 9:53 am

    I was at Ikea for the first time in 15 years. Shopping for my new apartment, at the check I had to pay 420 dollar…I was shocked.
    Ikea is a huge money grabbing trap. Be careful!

  13. J. D. on April 13, 2023 at 9:54 am

    The shortcut signs have been there for years. So that’s no secret or IKEA trying to fool you in any way. If you want to make sure you get through every section, then follow the arrows on the floor. Pretty simple.

  14. ratxy on April 13, 2023 at 9:54 am

    i think this dude is mark zuckerberg

  15. Kai Sy on April 13, 2023 at 9:54 am

  16. Monika Nordgren on April 13, 2023 at 9:58 am

    We say iikea not eyekea

  17. Olga Velosa on April 13, 2023 at 9:59 am

    I love going through the store following the arrows. I find a lot of great ideas that way

  18. Two Songs on April 13, 2023 at 10:04 am

    Thank you so much for this info and I don’t believe you when you say you don’t have any friends as you’re most pleasant and have quite a charming personality. All the best to you, now and always. God bless!

    When I moved into an apt after selling my home, I purchased a number of bookcases with doors, shelves for my bathrooms and multiple shelves for inside my walk in closets as well as other furniture. I converted one closet to an office, craft space using shelves that Interlocked to form a desk, etc. I am very pleased with the IKEA products despite receiving many items damaged in transit that needed replacement. Once CoVid hit a lot of products were not in stock and in some cases took months to receive mostly due to supply chain issues common to all retailers. The pandemic is still affecting supply. Although irritating, the IKEA staff has done all they can to help me find what I need if it’s available anywhere in their other stores.

  20. The movie lover on April 13, 2023 at 10:06 am

    You look alot like Oscar martinez from the office us

  21. ~ SeekRoblox ~ on April 13, 2023 at 10:06 am

    walking trough 11.000 feet of bedroom furniture makes me fell scared you want to know why bc i feel like trapped in 3008.

  22. Sherry Cohen on April 13, 2023 at 10:06 am

    I take exception to two things in this video. 1) Even if you have a telephone number for your closest store, you get transferred to the general IKEA number and don’t get to talk to a human for about 30 minutes, if you’re lucky. 2) I have been trying to get more shelf pegs for my son’s Billy Bookcase since May 2022! I’ve been in the store twice and asked for them. They said they would mail it and it would take 7-10 days. I still don’t have them. Then I contacted them via the Internet to follow up. No answer, and it’s been three weeks. Does anyone know if I can drill new holes into the particle board that the bookcases are made of and put in L-shaped brackets to hold the shelves?

  23. Jamie on April 13, 2023 at 10:07 am

    Do more videos on solar panels. We need to know how cheap we can get them. It’s 2022 not 2002.

  25. vikki Roun To It on April 13, 2023 at 10:08 am

    "I’m a professional YouTuber" my favorite line – Love you Deal Guy!! You make such useful videos – any store I’m newly about to shop, I come here first:)

  26. jacquie b on April 13, 2023 at 10:09 am

    Bought a king size duvet from Ikea and love it, it cost £29.99. Looked on Amazon, exactly the same thing £70 Same for a lamp that I bought. Seems £70 is the going price. for most things.

  27. Stephanie Barrett on April 13, 2023 at 10:11 am

    Funny I found you…was just there yesterday and almost had a panic attack trying to get out. All for a 12.99 throw. Then, when I finally got to the cash, it was 20 people deep. Left my purchase and went home dejected. Never again…..

  28. Lee Boriack on April 13, 2023 at 10:11 am

    Buddy, you are a little goldmine, thank you!

  29. The Deal Guy on April 13, 2023 at 10:11 am

    If you enjoyed this video, please give it a THUMBS UP. I’m trying to get to 10,000 LIKES! 😀 Have you purchased any furniture from IKEA?

  30. Tiffany Roberts on April 13, 2023 at 10:12 am

    your mic is upside down so it’s effecting the audio!

  31. Adrian Kap on April 13, 2023 at 10:14 am

    One thing I always fear is giving too much info about my privacy. Although the apps etc are nice features and FREE, the reason they’re FREE is so they can obtain your cell phone information. I believe IKEA is a Chinese based company so I personally wouldn’t just hand over anything about myself so FREEly. These are the kind of disclaimers that need to be put out there for these great, wonderful and over the top helpful video’s. Nothing is FREE so you’ll pay the price somewhere down the line. Is it worth it, that’s up to you but at least you know. It’s just a suggestion to add that in with your amazing video’s. Thank you for all you do to get us great deals and valuable information

    thank you. that was so helpful

  34. 21whichiswhich on April 13, 2023 at 10:17 am

    I just went for the first time in an Ikea store (in Philippines the biggest in the world right now) it was an experienced and took a lot of time to the cashier. Lol

  35. RL Perri on April 13, 2023 at 10:20 am

    Who is watching this two years later after inflation?

  36. Valerie Devereux on April 13, 2023 at 10:22 am

    Don’t call, they never answer the phone. Customer service sucks. But I do like the quality and sturdiness of furniture. I am a 67 year old woman, so I have them deliver. You can’t find someone to assist putting items in your cart, car or home from the car. But the delivery helps, because I can breakdown the box, and carry individual pieces to the area that I am putting it together.

  37. C T on April 13, 2023 at 10:24 am

    I think you are the best and I consider you as my friend who knows something about everything. God bless you.❤😄 and blessings to your family too.

  38. Caro Taylor on April 13, 2023 at 10:24 am

    I like that your videos provide captioning, since I often watch them with the sound turned off, but some of the captions are extremely annoying. It’s "wanna," not "wonna."

  39. Silvin on April 13, 2023 at 10:27 am

    Omg how didn’t I know about that app!! Big like from me on this video!

  40. Ladysan on April 13, 2023 at 10:29 am

    Number 8 is for sure a cultural thing that can come off as rude in other countries. But Swedish people hate talking to strangers anywhere; on the bus, in the grocery store, etc. Being approached in a store while you’re just browsing, minding your own business, is sometimes terrifying and definitely uncomfortable. I’m sure that’s why these IKEA staff are trained that way, as IKEA is originally Swedish and that’s how we prefer it in Sweden. Funny to see how they keep the same concept globally. 😅

  41. Susan Hollingsworth on April 13, 2023 at 10:30 am

    My ikea will not sell floor models. Not ever. For any reason. I’ve asked several times, the answer is always no, they don’t check, and they say it’s policy.

  42. Aura BG on April 13, 2023 at 10:32 am

    well no everyone has ikea close to thehaiuse and honestly ikea shipping sucks so i rather get it for a 3rd part company

  43. Abu Ibrahim alNabulsi on April 13, 2023 at 10:32 am

    I’m a new viewer and I’m SO happy to have found this older video! So much helpful info, and Lowkey the nerdy claustrophobic bit really hit home as both genuine and relatable 🎉🫂🤣

  44. johnnyr860 on April 13, 2023 at 10:33 am

    So if the price on something drops Ikea will refund you the difference provided you still have the receipt within 90 days. Who is going to be going back to Ikea just to go through a maze to find out if the one or two items they bought were lowered in price? Sure you could just check online but who is going to constantly go online to keep checking the same items for a lower price just to go back for a difference refund? I know I won’t. I have a friend who lives about 2 hours away from me and the closest Ikea is down the street from my house. For some people like my friend going to Ikea to get a price difference refunded will cost more in gas then the difference of the items price. So while this may work for some it is not for all.

    Now Amazon. Maybe I am just not so lucky but I bought a lamp from Ikea about 3 years ago. It was my favorite Ikea lamp. Well needless to say I was moving some furniture around in my room and accidentally knocked over the lamp and it broke. Ikea no longer had the lamp on their website and when I went to the store I was advised the lamp was discontinued about a month prior. I was able to find the same exact lamp on Amazon from Ikea but for twice what I paid for it 3 years ago. Not sure if I just got unlucky or if Ikea just raises their Amazon prices on discontinued items.

    Why it’s so expensive?

  47. Sir Khid on April 13, 2023 at 10:35 am

    i have the the biggest secret of all…#11

  48. Disteh / on April 13, 2023 at 10:36 am

    Why I know all of this already arghhh wasted my time finishing the video 😂

  49. HrHaakon on April 13, 2023 at 10:37 am

    If you don’t want to buy Ikea’s shipping, can’t you just rent a van or a trailer and go pick it up yourself? Here Ikea lends you the trailer, and rents you a van for cheaper than a delivery.
    But that might just be local differences.
