It's ok: We're mourning the loss of our wild college days right about now, too. But there's nothing quite like a good sale to turn everything around — even if it is a back to college sale. It's not like you need your student ID to get in, after all.
Ikea is offering $25 off any in-store purchase of $150 or more for Ikea Family members (it's free to join) as part of its "Back to College" event on the weekend of July 7 and 8. But that's not even it. There are also select products and foods on sale for Ikea Family members, as well as giveaways, and in-store activities and workshops.
