Win prizes with IKEA FAMILY and ‘Swipe a Surprise’ (I got a hot dog!)

If you ask me, IKEA is the best store in the world – what’s even better is that IKEA looks the same anywhere in the world.  The only downside I’ve found, oddly, are the hot dogs as they differ from country to country.

As a kid we used to go to IKEA on Saturdays and then spend Sundays assembling furniture. I still like to do that, which is probably why I love moving house.

We’ve never covered the IKEA FAMILY card on Shopper Points and after my last IKEA visit this weekend, I felt like it was about time.


The benefits of the IKEA FAMILY card aren’t that exciting, however the card comes with a variety of small perks that add to your IKEA experience.

As a member you get:

  • Monthly offers in store
  • Members prices on family range
  • Free tea or filter coffee
  • Food offers
  • Extra 10% off sale articles
  • Free product insurance
  • Swipe a surprise
  • Savings with partners

‘Swipe A Surprise’ happens throughout the year at special times.

You are guaranteed a prize which can be anything from a Hot Dog to furniture or a trip to Stockholm.

How does it work?

When you pay, swipe your IKEA FAMILY card.

Visit the IKEA FAMILY ‘Swipe A Surprise’ website.


Enter the barcode printed at the bottom of your receipt.

Log into your account.

Claim your prize.


Unfortunately I didn’t win any furniture, but when I go back to eat my free hot dog I will swipe my card again.

If you are not an IKEA FAMILY member, you can sign up on this page of the IKEA website.

    “If you ask me, IKEA is the best store in the world” – you are quite clearly insane !! 🙂

  2. Last time round, Ikea Edmonton had some machines after the checkout to scan your receipt and print your prize voucher. I too won a hot dog…
