Cheap chairs, bedding and other items have been on sale for several months now, but now there’s a new price war to fight.
The Huffington Pause blog reports that furniture retailers like Home Depot and Target are offering a new range of goods for $2.99, or $4.95 for a 12-inch or 18-inch unit.
There’s even a “bought for $1.49” option.
The blog reports the new prices are up slightly from the same time last year, when the average price was $3.95 per unit.
This year, though, the price increases are less dramatic.
“It’s not an outright increase, but we are seeing some movement,” Home Depot’s Brian Janssen told The Huffington Poa.
“The price is a little higher than last year.”
In addition to furniture, the blog says some “luxury” items are also being sold for a “buy it for a dollar” price.
“There are so many of these items, you would think you could find the perfect gift for a loved one for $10 or $20 or $50, but it’s not like that,” Jansson told HuffPost.
The Huffington Post’s report comes amid an uptick in the price of gas.
The national average cost of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $2,192, a 13% jump from last year.
That’s the lowest it’s been in three years.
