If these walls could talk, they might say, "Dude, it's time to replace that sofa," or "Any plans to furnish that patio?" Not because your living space is necessarily lacking, but because Way Day — Wayfair's biggest sale event of the year — is back for round two, exactly six months after its first appearance, starting today, October 26. Do we know exactly why 2022 is the year for sister sale events (looking at you, Amazon Early Access Sale)? No, we do not. But, quite frankly, we're not complaining. Once again, there's no better time to (*cue jingle*) get just what you need for your home, especially for these upcoming 48 hours when Wayfair offers discounts up to 80% off with free shipping.
In years prior — hell, even earlier this year — Way Day has been a time to catch best-selling office chairs, top-rated WFH desks, adored loveseats, funky rugs, and more Way-famous furniture finds at some of their lowest price tags to date. Let's just say Wayfair did not disappoint. Our credit cards are in hand, our homes are prepped for a slew of marked-down furniture finds, and we’re breaking down everything you need to know right now to get the most out of your Way Day 2022: the remix. Start your carts, and may the best deal hunter win.
When is Way Day 2022 2.0?
This last-minute Way Day revival runs from Wednesday, October 26 to Thursday, October 27. Prior to these major 48 hours, Wayfair offered a few early access deals referred to on-site as the sale "preview." Now that the big day has arrived, we've got our eye on top-rated outdoor furniture, game-changing storage solutions, area rugs, and a few other discounted hidden gems.
What is Way Day?
Let's just say Way Day is the Amazon Prime Day of home goods and a crucial 48 hours for us furniture fanatics and the decor-obsessed. R29 readers, for example, love a good deal and are known to snatch up quite a few finds during the frenzied sale. That stunning 30% off sectional becomes 50% off; top-reviewed cooling pillows is suddenly 75% off; R29-reader-favorite buys get restocked and marked down. This year, we're seeing the same steep price cuts, flash deals, limited-time, under-$100 tags, and more — if not better. If you're not interested in endless site scrolling today, then don't worry — we'll be isolating all the best deals until Way Day closes up shop.
How long is Way Day?
The event once again takes place over the course of two days (48 all-too-brief hours). If you're prone to decision-panic and want as much time as possible to ruminate over which duvet cover best complements your room's color story, however, we recommend not waiting around till Thursday evening. You can also keep an eye out for current and upcoming flash sales throughout the event.
What are the best Way Day deals?
In the spring, we noticed some major interest in outdoor furniture — for fall, peeps are sticking to indoor furniture finds while still staying loyal to outdoor furniture sets. (Apparently savvy hosts are looking to update their winter entertaining game with fireplaces, comfy outdoor couches, and more.) And no matter the season, some of the best Way Day deals are on customer best-sellers and big-ticket items: office chairs, bookcases, rugs, mattresses, mattress toppers, couches, and the like. Which means prepare for low inventories, sold-out colorways, and more time-sensitive shopping audibles. Keep checking back here for our extensive, updated coverage of the best in-stock Way Day once the game begins.
