HOWTO: Get an IKEA Catalogue

Jessica Coen, one of our chaste sisters kept cloistered in an attic room over at, had a very strong reaction to our IKEA catalogue review. To wit:

omg, how did you get a catalogue? i
ve requested them a thousand times, never get anything…

Dear Jessica: All we did was fill out this form on their website. But we’ve had to do so, like every time we’ve moved.

Has anyone else had difficulty with IKEA’s fast-as-a-fjord catalogue mailing system? Maybe The Consumerist can sponsor a IKEA catalogue reading slumber party.

    For a while there (I don’t know if this is still true), they wouldn’t even bother to send you a catalog if you didn’t live near an IKEA store.

    I do not. But my parents do, so I would just swipe their catalog…

    Last year I never got one and had to steal my brother’s since he is an actual city dweller. This year I had one sent to me – I think they got a clue and printed more.

    I have heard of people actually buying the catalogues on eBay, too, which seems insane, but you can’t really quantify the craziness that is Ikea.

    For some odd reason, my family in Houston started sending me Ikea catalogs along with Xmas and birthday presents.

    I only bought some replacement pulls for a dresser drawer once. I would only shop at Ikea in person because I would want to see the quality of the item before I purchased it as ‘quality’, and durability, are suspect there.

    Drawer pulls, yes.
    Like someone posted earlier, a refrigerator, no.

    On Ebay? Psh.
