Guide To IKEA Family Membership

What’s not to like about shopping at IKEA and enjoying their popular Swedish meatballs at discounted pricing?


Many Singaporeans, especially those who prefer to get hands-on with their home furniture, probably love shopping at IKEA for new ideas and to eat their famous meatballs.

If you are one of them, you should consider IKEA Family Membership, which comes with a variety of benefits such as rewards, discounts on selected products, and access to exclusive events.

What Is IKEA Family Membership?

With over 110 million members worldwide, the IKEA Family Membership is a free loyalty programme that is open to everyone to join with no membership fees.

Just like every other membership programme, the IKEA Family Membership allows you to earn reward points for in-store purchases and redeem them as cash back to offset your spending. You can earn reward points by spending at any of the IKEA-affiliated stores, including, official IKEA outlets, online stores, restaurant, bistro and food market.

Every S$1 spent is equivalent to 1 IKEA Family point, and every 500 points (or S$500 spent) will earn you S$5, which means that you enjoy 1% cash back as a member.

How To Become An IKEA Family Member?

You can sign up in-store at one of the IKEA Family digital screens, or online directly, to become an IKEA Family Member. You will receive a digital card instantly upon successful registration, which you can use to start enjoying the membership benefits instantly. The physical card will be mailed to you within 4 weeks of registration.

Do note that you will need to create an IKEA account first before you are able to sign up for the membership.
