What's the Deal?

Summer is almost here, which means warm weather, road trips, and a familiar slate of national holidays and celebrations like Memorial Day, Father’s Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day. And holidays mean deals. Lots, and lots, of deals.

Clearance sales. Liquidation events. BOGO’s, BOGOHO’s, and YOLO’s. If it’s on your wish list, it can probably be found at a discounted price.

If you’ve ever scoured the internet for a Nugget discount code, or reached out to ask us when we were having our next big sale, you’re not alone. We often get questions about our product pricing, and as always, we want to honor the customers who support our business with clear, straightforward answers. So, where does Nugget stand with regards to promotion and discounting?

We keep our pricing consistent year-round. We don’t do big discounts or sales at Nugget for a few reasons: 

We want to treat all customers fairly. 

No matter what time of year you purchase a Nugget, you can rest assured that you are paying the same price, for the same item, as everyone else. While there are different prices on our site for Nuggets with different fabrics, those prices stay the same for as long as they’re up on the site. When a friend recommends a Nugget to you, you’re able to go on our site and buy it for the same price they bought it three months before, whether they bought it on Memorial Day weekend or not.

We prioritize a living wage for our Production Team. 

We believe in fair compensation for all Nugget staff members, both in support of their individual livelihoods and the overall quality of life in our local community. Keeping a standard, non-discounted pricing strategy allows this higher wage to be safely built into our margin, without fear of hurting our long-term prospects as a company.

We maintain a commitment to high-quality materials. 

Calling our products “Certified Nuggety” means using the best materials possible at all times, and regularly changing our price point would make it challenging to keep that consistency of product quality over time. Maintaining consistent price points also empowers us to act as better partners to our suppliers in N.C. and around the world.

We want a healthy long-term business.

We want to be fostering creativity and growing imaginations for years to come, and one way we can do that is to not make things more complicated than they have to be. Behind every 50% off sale is an accountant (or two, or three) re-calculating how many products need to be sold by the end of the year, if some portion of those products are being sold for no profit, or even at a loss. When we keep our pricing consistent, we make life simpler and more reliable for our customers, and also for ourselves. And that means we can spend more time on big ideas, and less time crunching numbers.

Wondering about exceptions to our no-discount philosophy?

Occasionally, we offer small shop credits to customers who participate in social media promotions or giveaways, and in some rare instances, we may offer a credit if customers are affected by shipping delays beyond their original estimated shipping window. But outside of these occasions, our prices and approach remain the same year-round, leaving room for the Nugget team to focus on what we do best: building furniture for growing imaginations.
