As we know, the IKEA Family scheme is an inclusive that gives shoppers offers, freebies and surprises in exchange for shopping in store.
With all of these benefits in mind it is actually really important to keep IKEA up to date with your change of address. This will reduce the risk of sending your items to the wrong address and ensure you gett all postal correspondence from IKEA.

There are a couple of ways to update the address on your IKEA Family Card. You can call IKEA directly (0203 645 0000) though this may involve wait times of over 10 minutes. You can also do it online with SlothMove in less than four minutes with our online change of address form. The other options are to communicate using the webchat function or speak to customer service when next in store.
When using SlothMove you can also inform everyone else at the same time (other loyalty schemes, NHS, DVLA, HMRC etc…) too if you need to without having to repeat yourself.
Most people wait until after they have moved before they complete an address change on their accounts. It is better to be proactive and let IKEA and your other providers know within two weeks of your home move. Updating your details will happen automatically, but you must remember that there could be mail communications out. So, to avoid any overlap it is good practice to give plenty of notice.
The IKEA family has over 110 million members world wide 🌎
Unlike most other loyalty schemes, IKEA doesn’t operate with points. Instead, you get a series of benefits (free coffee, access to workshops etc…) and a flat rate ‘members discount’ on lots of items sold by the Swedish retailer.
You can apply online or in store.
You’ve just moved home and you’re looking to buy all of your furniture.
You’ve upadted your address and now you want to get some new items delivered only to be surprised by the delivery charge.
So, why is IKEA delivery so expensive?
Firstly, IKEA’s business model is to provide lower cost furnishings. IKEA is able to sell these items at a lower price point because they eliminate time and labour costs from their supply chain -everything is self-assembly, they don’t deliver and shoppers collect from the warehouse.
Delivery of smaller items is cheaper than larger. IKEA offers delivery as its a service customers want but it isn’t at their core business model meaning they choose not to be competitive on price.
For instance, check out the below pricing on the larger items for IKEA UK.
