IKEA is hoping to turn Black Friday green with the national launch of its Buy Back & Resell service in 33 stores across the US.

This nationwide launch is part of the company’s “Green Friday” celebration and will give customers the opportunity to sell back their gently used IKEA furniture in exchange for store credit at participating stores.

This opportunity will be available exclusively to IKEA Family members (free to join) from November 1 through December 5, 2021.

The new Buy Back & Resell program will allow IKEA Family members to give their furniture a second life through resale in IKEA’s “As-Is” section.

This program was extremely successful during its pilot at IKEA’s Conshohocken, PA location, where 100% of the products bought back were resold rather than recycled!

“IKEA is on a journey to become a circular and climate positive business by 2030… We want to help create a sustainable movement in society and inspire our customers to acquire, care for and pass on IKEA products in more sustainable ways.” – Javier Quiñones, IKEA U.S. President and Chief Sustainability Officer

IKEA will be accepting only certain products as part of its Buy Back & Resell program. Items must be clean, unmodified, and fully assembled. You can see the complete list of requirements here, and find a participating store near you.

If you have something you’d like to sell back to IKEA between now and December 5, you can get started by filling out the form found here. In return, you’ll receive an emailed quote with your item’s buy-back value.

After you receive your quote via email, simply bring a copy of your quote, your buyback number, and your fully assembled furniture to your participating IKEA store. There, a co-worker will assess your furniture’s buy-back value in person. If your item is accepted for resale in the As-Is department, you’ll get store credit for your furniture.

As part of the store’s mission to become climate positive, IKEA is also launching a new ‘Sustainable Living Shop‘ inside each U.S. location. This dedicated section of the store will make it easier for customers to shop for sustainable products with the goal of making green living easier and more affordable.

To celebrate Green Friday and the launch of its Sustainable Living Shop, IKEA will offer discounts on sustainable products throughout the month of November to all IKEA Family Members. There will also be discounts on IKEA food products with sustainability certifications available at all IKEA US stores nationwide from November 26 – 29, 2021.

    Oh man. A couple of years ago we threw away a kids bed with shelving units underneath. If only they were doing this then.

    I feel like I need a list of what they are accepting. The list of excluded products seems to cover most of the store.

    When does the as is section let shoppers open for buying the items? I am assuming they inspect it for safety or covid?
