If you’re finally ready to fill that empty corner of your living room with cool chairs for guests or find a new bookshelf or two for your bedroom, now might be a good time to head to IKEA.

The furniture megastore known for its inexpensive, build-it-yourself homewares wants to feed your whole family.

Here’s the deal: If you go to IKEA between Sept. 2-4, and spend $100 or more before tax, the store will cover the cost of your meal.

Here’s How the IKEA Restaurant Deal Works

To redeem this offer, you’ll need to make sure you’re an IKEA Family member. If not, you’ll want to sign up before heading to the store.

When you get to the store, start your visit in the IKEA restaurant. Yes, you have to buy your family’s food first, but the cashier will give you a coupon that’s your ticket to a refund.

You have to buy your furniture on the same day you eat, so when you’re full, it’s time to go shopping. Whether you shop for new furniture or hit up the as-is section for deals, make sure you spend $100 or more before tax — no, you can’t count gift card purchases toward your total.

At checkout, present your IKEA Family card, the coupon and the receipt for your family’s meal. The cashier will deduct the meal’s cost from the total furniture purchase.

Bon appetit.
