How To Get The Best Deals While Shopping At RH

Say you're looking at purchasing brand new lawn furniture at Restoration Hardware. You want to upkeep your gorgeous outdoor seating spaces, but the specific set of furniture you're interested in is a bit more money than you were looking to spend. You might be thinking, "I'll just wait until it goes on sale at the end of summer!" Unfortunately, RH isn't what it used to be. Some things have changed ... and the store's seasonal sales are one of them. According to PopSugar, RH has been minimizing its use of seasonal sales in the past six years (and don't expect to find any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals either).

Before you panic about paying full price, don't! There are still plenty of ways to get the best deals at RH, and the best part is that you don't have to wait until a certain time of year to snag them. RH offers money-saving perks to keep its customers happy and on budget.

RH Members Program

Since Restoration Hardware began its RH Members Program in 2016, the company has been slowly transitioning out of holiday and seasonal sales to incentivise customers to sign up. For $100 a year (plus tax), RH members can get 25% off any full-priced item at any time of the year, says Clarus Commerce. Additionally, members are gifted 10% off all sale items and complimentary interior design services. Members get even more bang for their buck with early access to all clearance events, as well as concierge services to help manage your orders (which you're going to need with all these great deals).   

PopSugar recommends signing up for the membership program if you plan on spending more than $400 a year at RH. It essentially pays for itself if you're consistently shopping for big-ticket items. RH's website even lists the regular price next to the membership price so you can actually see the comparison.

Outlet stores

If you don't want to shell out the annual membership fee, or you simply don't shop at Restoration Hardware enough to warrant a membership, there are plenty of other options to get the best deals at RH. There are several RH outlets throughout the United States. According to Your Designer BFF, RH Outlet store is a place RH houses all of its excess inventory. It's hands-down one of the best ways to snag RH items for extremely low costs because it offers up to 70% off (you may even find some items listed at 80% off).

Because RH outlets contain so much inventory in one place, it can get overwhelming when it's time to shop. To reduce anxiety, Your Designer BFF suggests checking out RH's website beforehand. Unfortunately, each individual outlet doesn't have its own website, but at least you can get an idea of what you might find when you come to the outlet.
