What Is the IKEA Family Card?
The Ikea Family card is a free membership program that allows customers access to exclusive benefits and rewards. The program is available in most countries that Ikea operates in, and it is also available online.
Certain offers and rewards may differ from country to country. This post is detailing the rewards and benefits for the UK Ikea Family card.
How Do I Sign Up for an IKEA Family Membership?
To sign up online, head to Ikea Family Membership and enter your details. You will be issued a digital card which means you can start making savings straight away.
In store, you can sign up at one of the digital screens using the same details.
What are the Perks of the IKEA Family Card?
There are a number of perks of being an Ikea Family member that we will explore in this post. In summary these are:
- Member discounts on selected products
- Exclusive cafe offers
- Free damage insurance
- Free member workshops & events
- Digital receipts & assembly manuals
Do I accumulate points on my IKEA Family Card?
No, there is no accumulation of points or money on the IKEA Family card. Instead you get access to the member benefits and offers outlined below.
Ikea Family Member discounts on products
Discounts on specific products are offered to Ikea Family members. The offers change frequently and from store to store, so it is not possible to give a list of current offers.
However, here is an example of some of the products available with Ikea Family discount in March 2023:
You may also receive specially curated discounts based on your own buying habits.
How to check what discounts are currently available
Simply head to the Ikea website and log in to your Family account, then select offers to browse the offers that are currently available.
You can also sign up for Ikea Family emails to keep up to date with the latest offers.
You can head to the Ikea family digital screens in store to see what offers are available. Any offers will automatically be applied when you present your card at checkout.
While browsing the store, any products offering a discount will have IKEA Family price blue labels displayed. Of course, it is probably easier to check online first if you have a specific furniture item in mind, as not all items will be on display (and in Ikea, it is easy to miss things just because of the sheer size of the place!)
Ikea Family Cafe offers
Ikea are famous for offering affordable meals in their cafes, and with the Family card, you can save even more with these offers.
Free tea or coffee, Monday-Friday
All day every weekday, Ikea Family Card members can enjoy a free tea or coffee in the cafe*. These drinks also come with unlimited refills. Other hot drinks such as hot chocolate are not included in the offer and will need to be purchased.
In order to claim your free tea or coffee, simply present your Ikea Family Card at the tillpoint.
*Excludes IKEA Hammersmith and Aberdeen Order and Collection Point.
Breakfast roll & hot drink for 95p
Currently Ikea Family members can enjoy a breakfast roll and any hot drink for 95p between 9.30 – 11am.
Kids eat from 95p
A kids pasta and tomato sauce meal is just 95p for Ikea Family card holders. All other children’s meals, such as the famous Ikea meatballs, are just £1.50. This offer is available every day from 11am.

While many people are aware of the other Ikea Family offers, I think this one is a bit of a hidden gem. Did you know that Ikea Family Card members get free transport & assembly damage insurance?
Known as Oops-assurance, if something breaks during transport or whilst assembling furniture, Ikea will exchange it for free if it is claimed within 90 days of purchase.
You must provide your receipt and the Family card must have been swiped at the time of purchase. This can only be claimed in store and not online.
This is great peace of mind as transporting and assembly are definitely the most high risk times for damage to occur!
Free member workshops and events
Did you know Ikea family members also get access to free workshops and events? These range from home furnishing workshops to children’s events and vary from store to store.
To find out what’s on at your local store, log in to your Family account and head to the Store Events page.
Digital receipts and manuals
This is another lesser known perk of Ikea Family membership, but copies of all of your receipts are stored digitally within the member’s area of your account. This could be especially handy when it comes to guarantees or returns.
Additionally, assembly manuals of products you buy are also automatically added to your member’s area, which could come in handy if you need to reassemble a product after moving house, for example.
Ikea Family Card Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Access My IKEA Family Membership in-Store?
Enter your details at one of the digital screens in store. You can either swipe your physical Family card, scan your digital Ikea Family card or enter personal details to access your account.
How Do I Access My IKEA Family Membership Online?
Head to the Ikea website and select login, or click here to be taken to the login page.
Is My Entire Family Given Membership on My IKEA Family Account?
No. The name Ikea Family refers to becoming a member of Ikea’s “family”, rather than a family membership. Offers such as the free hot drink are limited to one per customer so each adult would need their own card to benefit.
Obviously with offers such as product discounts and damage insurance, it wouldn’t matter whose card was swiped in order to benefit, so you might find that one card is enough for your family anyway.
Can I add a purchase to my Family Card retrospectively?
No, you would need to swipe or scan your Ikea Family card at the time of purchase to gain any discounts or damage cover protection.
Is the IKEA Family Membership Card a Credit Card?
No, the Ikea Family card is not a credit card. However Ikea do offer credit plans for some purchases. See the details here.
Can I Use My Ikea Family Card in another country?
IKEA Family Cards can only be used in the country in which they have been issued in.
If you would like to take advantage of an IKEA Family discount in a different country, you would need to register an account in the desired country with an alternative email address to your current Family card account.
