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

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.
