Wayfair's Way Day sale 2024

Not quite sure where to begin? Or perhaps you've laser focused on your needs. Whatever shopping situation you're in, our quick links can point you in the proper direction. 

This year's Way Day sale will focus on helping shoppers create unique areas indoors and outdoors (it's the time to bring your backyard ideas to life) whilst the retailer promises to dish out the lowest prices.

Niraj Shah, chief executive officer at Wayfair says, "This Way Day, we're excited to give our customers the chance to make their spaces their own — whether they need summer-ready sheets, a new grill, or an incredible outdoor set to make the space just right — with our lowest prices of the season and free and easy delivery on everything.

Alongside prices being slashed, Way Day has seen thousands of new lines added to 12-hour flash offers, as well as mega discounts on favored and celeb brands, including Kelly Clarkson Home, Keurig, Delta, Hoover, Blackstone, and Wayfair's family of brands, including AllModern, Joss & Main, Birch Lane, Perigold, and Wayfair Professional.

But there's more to love. The Wayfair app  is particularly useful for shoppers thanks to its exclusive View in Room feature that lets you zoom in and out, circle products, and visualize what they'll actually look like in your home — a major help that you can't get on the website. The app is free to download. You can also save a further 10 percent when you sign up for texts and emails, though some exclusions apply.

Is Way Day only once per year?

Although Way Day is a once-a-year savings extravaganza, shoppers were delighted to learn a second Way Day went live in October 2023. It's too soon to tell what's going to happen this year, but keep your eyes peeled here — and your fingers crossed — to learn more.

Is the entire site on sale during Way Day?

Still shopping? You're in luck, but you'll have to act quickly. The latest Home Depot sale,  Home Depot Decor Days, also comes to a close on May 6, but features plenty of buys worth snagging. Selections are up to 50% off during the savings event. Keep in mind this promotion is online-only.
