Got Balls? Fight The IKEA Crowd And Grab A Plate Of Meatballs For Just $0.75 This Weekend


There’s an unofficial rule in life that if you go to IKEA, you buy their meatballs.

They might not be of the highest quality (there are other places for that), but at the affordable price of $6 for a plate of 8, they are hands-down the easiest to satisfy your meatball cravings.

And if you have been craving the nostalgia-inducing dish lately, this weekend might be the time to scratch that itch, because the Swedish furniture company will be selling their meatballs for less than a dollar.

Wait, How Much?!

[caption id="attachment_37684" align="alignnone" width="1308"]IKEA 75 Image Credit: IKEA Singapore[/caption]

Yup, you heard us right — in celebration of their 75th anniversary, IKEA will be selling a plate of 8 meatballs for 75 cents on the 6th and 7th of October.

If the calculator on our phones are working correctly, that’s an unbelievable 9(.375) cents per meatball, which means that your meal will probably be cheaper than the transport costs to get there.

There are a few things to take note of though: this promotion will only be happening at IKEA Tampines (sorry, north/south/west siders), and you have to be IKEA FAMILY member to be eligible as well.

Only 750 plates will be sold at this price (limited to one plate per member, thankfully), and judging by how Kiasu Singaporeans can be you’ll most likely have to wake up reaaal early to take advantage of this offer.

More Than Just Meatballs

If you can’t be bothered with going up against what is sure to be a chaotic crowd, IKEA is having pretty massive discounts on their furniture as well (because they’re…y’know, a furniture company).

To save you a trip to the their website, Here’s a list what’s on offer:

Sprucing Up Your BTO? Here Are 6 Affordable Furniture Stores That Are Not IKEA

furniture singapore

You’ve got the keys to your BTO, so what’s next?

When it comes to sprucing up your new home, IKEA is typically the first place that pops into mind. There’s no doubt that it offers cheap furniture at decent quality.

However, this option is sometimes not ideal, because you’ve got to put the furniture together yourself (which can go terrible). Also, when friends and family start spotting the same furniture as you, it gets a little too predictable.

[caption id="attachment_36399" align="aligncenter" width="400"]furniture GIF Credit:[/caption]

From online to brick-and-mortar (or both), these shops will be your new go-tos, serving up an array of stylish furnishings that won’t break the bank because who says you have to be rich for your home to look like a million bucks.
