This is the eleventh installment of 12 Things to Know About Buying Carpet which can also be downloaded as a free eBook.

You’ve probably seen or heard advertisements that sound too good to be true. Carpet sales that are “extreme” – such as 80% off, or similar, are smoke and mirror tricks designed to confuse customers and drum up business in an unethical way.

There are some legitimate reasons for carpets to sell at a discount. The flooring retailer may have been able to get a bulk deal on a certain brand and make of carpet, and they can pass some of those savings on to the consumer. There might be excess inventory or a customer who reneged on a deal. Likewise, there can be discontinued types or brands of carpet that will sell for less than their original price.
