Bristol mum’s trick to get hundreds off DFS sofa

A mum-of-two has shared a clever trick to get hundreds of pounds off the price of a DFS sofa.

As The Sun reports, Nikki Matthews, 29, from Bristol, ordered a grey four-seater sofa from DFS in May, which would arrive in 12 weeks.

The sofa costs £1,165, which she opted to pay in interest-free monthly instalments over four years.

But as she was waiting for it to be delivered, she noticed that DFS had slashed the price to £999 in the sale.

Nikki’s friend tipped her off that the shop would match the new price of the sofa if it hadn’t arrived yet, so she called her local DFS branch to see whether she could get a discount.

She was told the £165 discount would be knocked off her final payment.

Nikki told The Sun: “I had an email the next day saying they had adjusted the cost by £165.

“It’s a really good saving, especially as I have a young family, and the money will most definitely be put to use elsewhere.

“I did go and buy my friend some of her favourite fancy dark chocolate as a thank you though.”

However, DFS told The Sun that there is no guarantee of the discount as it has no company policy in place where it price matches items in the sale.

It added that there may have been other factors involved as to why money was knocked off Nikki’s sofa.

Nikki shared her money-saving trick in the Extreme Couponing and Bargains group on Facebook.

She said: “I didn’t know this until someone said, but if you’ve ordered a DFS sofa and it’s not been delivered yet and they lower the price, if you contact the branch you bought it from, they price match!! £165 saved for us!!”

A number of shoppers said they had tried the hack with DFS following Nikki’s post, and had also been given money off their sofa.

One happy customer said: “We had this 6 years ago, and saved about £200!”

Another said: “Yes I had the same & have been refunded £210 which I’m really pleased about!”
