Our editors independently research, test, and recommend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here. We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

Whether you’re planning a nursery or helping your teen redecorate their childhood bedroom, chances are you’ve come across the popular online retailer Wayfair. Thanks to a huge range of products—typically at a discount—you can stock up on cribs, rockers, dressers, beds and bedding, toy storage, and more. Often the products can be shipped right to your door, and that’s even before Wayfair's Way Day sale. 

Below, we'll fill you in on what Wayfair's Way Day is, when it's going to be, and where you'll find the biggest discounts during the sale. We'll continue to update this page as we find out more, so be sure to bookmark it and come back to save on everything you need.

When is Way Day 2021?

This year the sale starts at midnight on April 28 and continues through 3 AM EST on April 30, 2021. Way Day only comes once a year so if you miss it this year, you’ll have to wait until next year. 

As far as how long the sales will last—the first year, Way Day was only 24-hours long, so shoppers had to act fast or miss out. The event has gotten progressively longer each year since: In 2019, it lasted 36 hours, and in 2020, it lasted 48.

That said, the best deals always sell out quickly. If you’re hoping to buy something specific on sale, you might want to prepare ahead of time. You can always sign up for email alerts or download the Wayfair app to get notifications so you’re ready when Way Day arrives. 

What is Way Day?

Way Day debuted in 2018 and it’s essentially an early Black Friday for all your home good needs. In other words, it’s a blowout sale with some of the biggest and best price discounts you'll find all year from Wayfair.

During this annual event, you can buy a range of products for up to 80 percent off their original prices, allowing you to find everything you might need to furnish a nursery, toddler playroom, teen’s bedroom, or homeschool classroom. 

In addition, many of the items ship free. And, in previous years, Wayfair has given customers the chance to take an extra 40 percent off at checkout if they shared deals on their social media pages. Last year, Wayfair also gave free gift cards with purchase for up to $200 off select Samsung products. 

The sale doesn’t just apply to Wayfair.com—it applies to the company’s sister brands too. Birch Lane, AllModern, and Joss & Main are all offering up to 50 percent off sitewide, with free shipping. Perigold will have discounts up to 30 percent off.

What is Usually on Sale During Way Day? 

Here are some recommendations for types of products to look for on Way Day, plus examples of items that have gone on sale in the past.

Nursery Furniture

If you are expecting, Way Day is the perfect time to shop for all your nursery furniture. In past years, savings have been up to 64 percent on gliders—like the Tuscany Glider and Ottoman—50 percent on cribs, and 50 percent on changing tables. 

Cribs and crib mattresses, such as the 2-Stage Waterproof Standard Crib Mattress, Sealy Baby Perfect Rest Waterproof Standard Crib Mattress, Orchard 5-in-1 Convertible Crib, and the Beaury 4-in-1 Standard Convertible Crib and Changer have all gone on sale in the past.

Bedroom Furniture

Whether you’re looking for your toddler’s first “big kid” bed, a twin bed for your preteen, or a dresser to organize all those kids’ clothes, you’ll likely be able to find what you need at discount. Last year, kids beds were up to 50 percent off and dressers were up to 65 percent off. This year bedroom furniture will start at $90, and mattresses will be up to 65 percent off.

We've seen sales on kids beds—like the Bellmead Twin over Twin Bunk Bed in years past.

Toys

Now’s the time to get ahead on any birthday present shopping because lots of big toys—dollhouses, play tents, and kitchen sets, like the KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Set—go on sale for anywhere from 20 to 50 percent off. Toy boxes and other storage options often go on sale too (storage starts at $9.99).

Lighting

Wayfair has tons of floor lamps, sconces, nursery table lamps, and chandeliers in a variety of styles. One of the big sales we've seen was the discount on the Jakayla Tray Table Floor Lamp. You can save up to 65 percent off on lighting this year.

Rugs

New spring rugs will have just arrived at Wayfair—and if past years are any judge, many of them will be on sale. Last year, area rugs like the Brenner Polka Dots Handmade Tufted Wool Gray/Ivory Area Rug were up to 80 percent off, and this year is no different.
