It’s the merry month of May, and at Wayfair, it's time for their 2-day bonanza of a spring sale (Way Day) on May 4-6, 2024. This annual sale is the perfect time to enjoy up to 80% off the site’s biggest sale of the year. Stock up on summer items like patio furniture (I love this set in yellow!), outdoor lighting, and other accessories. Plus, indoor furniture for all the rooms and household accessories are heavily discounted for the first weekend in May. Popular brands like Mercury Row, Kelly Clarkson Home, Rachel Ray, and All-Clad will likely get serious markdowns.

You can find hundreds of items marked down–not just at Way Day prices (yet)! If you haven’t started your spring cleaning and refreshing your home, now is the time to snap up new furnishings for a fraction of their original prices. Now is the perfect time to take stock of what you own and what you need (I need this jute rug, for example, and it is currently 78% off for $214.99!). Then, make a game plan for what to buy on markdown during Way Day(s).

If you act now (and until May 3), sign up for a Wayfair online account, fill your “dream cart” with items, and you will be entered into a sweepstakes to win $599 towards the products you’ve fallen in love with. Check out these sale items on Wayfair if you want to get a head start!

I love this vintage design that works outside or inside, and because has a low-pile weaver and grip support, it would make a great addition to a kid-friendly space. It is a fade and stain resistant rug, which means you can vacuum or hose it (outdoors) to keep it easily clean.

What is the Wayfair Way Day sale?

The Wayfair Way Day sale is an annual spring event where markdowns are high (up to 80% off), and offerings are wide—sitewide, in fact—on indoor and outdoor furniture, appliances, accessories, and other homegoods. The store will also offer thousands of flash deals lasting 12 hours, plus additional “Doorbuster Deals” on name brands like Hoover, Delta, and Kelly Clarkson Home.

When is Wayfair Day 2024 and how long will it last?

The sale runs May 4-6, 2024, and there will be heavy markdowns in almost every department—it’s Wayfair’s biggest sale of the year. The virtual doors open at the stroke of midnight on May 4 and end at 2:59 am on May 7, 2024. Reports show that in the past, sales have been extended, as well.

What sales should we expect?

Sales include outdoor furniture and accessories, kitchen appliances, rugs, lighting, indoor furniture, and other home goods. Plus, free shipping and flash sales are included in the Way Day sale so that you can stretch your savings. Plus, don’t forget to check Wayfair’s sister sites like AllModern, Joss & Main, Perigold, and Birch Lane because they have their own Way Day sales, too. For example, I have my eye on several items that will be marked up to 70% off on AllModern.

Tips for finding the best Wayfair Way Day deals

No surprise here; this online retailer has an app to help you find the best Wayfair Way Day deals and more. Simply download the Wayfair App, and you’ll receive early access to sale prices the night before, Friday, May 3, 2024. Make your list and be ready when the sale opens on Saturday.

Take advantage of the site and app’s 3D visualization room plan to help you figure out the best place to put down your new purchases. Check the site now (presale items are up and marked down), and then set your clocks for midnight (if you are a night owl) on May 4, and keep checking back (get the app!) so you can find extra flash deals within the sale, too. And don’t forget those sister sites; each offers big markdown sales during Way Day!
