Wayfair’s annual Way Day sale is fast approaching, and after a schedule change last year, it’s back in its normal April timing. While Wayfair may generally conjure associations to larger home goods like furniture for the whole house (and outdoors too), it’s actually an equally perfect place to stock up on smaller home essentials—anything from kitchen utensils and countertop appliances to dishes and tableware. With its massive array of styles, Wayfair's Way Day is not to be missed.
Here's everything you need to know about Way Day this year.
When is Way Day 2021?
Mark your calendars, this year's Way Day was just announced: April 28 and 29 (technically, the sale starts at midnight and ends at 3 AM EST on April 30). It'll be just 48 hours, and you can already sign up on the site to get notified about flash deals, kitchen & dining furniture, kitchen essentials, tabletop, and more.
What is Way Day?
Wayfair’s major annual sale is still fairly fresh, with a few years of history under its belt. Each year has proven to be bigger and better than the last, with this year looking like no exception. The sale has historically taken place annually in April, and though the name may insinuate a single-day sale, it tends to be closer to two days long.
This provides enough time to get in and snag some home decor deals, but no spare time to waste, either. (Picture Amazon Prime Day, with Wayfair style and twists.)
Wayfair’s product lineup runs the gamut from rugs, outdoor furniture, and lighting to kitchen supplies, towels, and even pet products. The sale sweeps every category, offering thousands of majorly marked-down items across the board, plus free shipping. Better yet, every few hours new items are put on sale as old inventory runs out, so the sale (while brief) is worth shopping more than once throughout its run.
You can also find big discounts on Wayfair's other sites. Take up to 50 percent off sitewide from Birch Lane, AllModern, and Joss & Main, plus free shipping. And, Perigold will have discounts up to 30 percent off as well.
