The best way to save money on a sofa, bed, or chair is to buy from retailers that carry the most popular brands, according to a new survey.
The survey, conducted by the consumer watchdog, Consumers Union, found that about 70% of shoppers said they buy the furniture online.
That’s a higher share than a year ago and a 30% increase from last year.
But when shoppers are told the name of the retailer, they’re less likely to buy.
Consumers Union analyzed more than 40,000 reviews and responses from consumers across the country.
They also tracked the brands and brands’ price tags and found the brands with the best margins and lowest markup were Wal-Mart and Sears.
The study also found that retailers that offer online shopping, such as Amazon, often offer cheaper prices than online retail stores.
But the study also suggests that the discounts offered by online retailers can sometimes be misleading.
Consumers who said they use their credit cards to buy online often received lower discounts than those who said that they used their debit card to buy items online, the study found.
The research also found some retailers were offering discounts of as much as 80% on the products they sell.
Consumers also may receive discounts on the merchandise in stores that they have purchased in-store at, rather than online, according the study.
For example, some retailers in California and New York are offering discounts that range from 50% to 80%.
“Consumers often pay for their products in-stores at the retail store,” the study said.
“However, many consumers believe they have the option to get a discount online through the website and receive it in-person at the store.”
Some of the online retailers, like Amazon, Walmart, and Sears, offer online payment methods.
But other retailers such as Walmart and Sears are not yet offering payment options, according for example.
Walmart and Amazon, which both offer Prime membership as a free service, are the only two major retailers offering payments online.
Some people who are eligible for online shopping are also able to receive discounts online, and the study suggests that consumers are more likely to use credit cards for online purchases.
In addition to the survey, Consumers Federation also conducted another survey with nearly 20,000 consumers last month that found that consumers who are more loyal to a brand are more inclined to spend more than those that are less loyal.
The report was released on Tuesday, and it found that more than 70% were more likely than others to use their personal credit cards, and those that use their debit cards are also more likely, on average, to use the payment option of a major retailer.
The consumers surveyed also were asked if they thought they could get a better deal on their purchases through the site or a retailer’s website.
Some 53% of consumers said they could, while 45% said they weren’t sure, and 19% said that was impossible.
About half of shoppers surveyed said they would recommend a retailer over a competitor, the report found.
Consumers are also less likely than other consumers to recommend a discount retailer online, which is a reflection of how often they purchase online and the higher costs retailers face in selling merchandise online.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau said it’s investigating whether the practices of some online retailers are unlawful.
The CFPB is the lead regulator of the Consumer Financial Products Association, which represents some of the nation’s largest retailers including Wal-Marts, Sears, and Best Buy.
It is also reviewing similar practices of major online retailers including Target, Amazon, and Costco.
“While retailers are working to improve their customer service and make sure their customer experience is as convenient and easy as possible, we will continue to closely monitor the situation,” CFPb Director Richard Cordray said in a statement.
“The CFPBS will continue working with the retailers to ensure they do not have a negative impact on consumers or their businesses.”
