You can afford to buy high-quality, beautiful rugs if you know where to shop online. In the past, the only way to get a really great rug was to visit a specialty shop or order from a business that dealt in the best rugs. Now, with modern technology, you can get a rug that looks like you were shopping far out of your price range. And gone are the days when you would then have to find a way to get your new rug to your home, as many of the places with the best deals also offer either free shipping or shipping at a reasonable cost. Among the best places to find great online deals for rugs are Overstock.com, Target and Pottery Barn.

Overstock.com offers good to great prices on a wide variety of items, including clothing, entertainment options, appliances and housewares. Rugs may be one of the biggest strengths, and you can shop by size, color, shape, texture and more to find the best rug to suit your needs and desires. Some of the best choices include reasonably priced shaggy rugs, ranging from small area rugs to ones that could cover a room. For instance, the Safavieh California Cozy Plush Taupe Shag Rug has discounted prices from $56.85 (from a recommended price of about $200) to a large rug at $704.99. Customers receive standard free shipping for U.S. orders over $45, and there is a reasonable return policy depending on the kind of order and date of purchase.

Target offers free shipping for online orders $35 or over, or for any price when purchasers use a Red Card. You can also have items shipped to the store, if you’re local. Target has an ever changing selection in the home decor department, with many items that coordinate with others so shoppers can decorate an entire home with ease. There are wool rugs, shag rugs, and other materials, and some rugs are even washable. Customers can choose modern designs or vintage looks, with many smaller rugs that are 5 X 7 for less than $100. Rugs large enough to decorate an entire room go for a regular price of $500 or more, but Target also offers discounts and clearance items on a regular basis.

Pottery Barn also has both modern and traditional designs, and the rugs are surprisingly affordable given their high quality and aesthetic appeal. Nobody will believe how little you paid for some of these rugs. Pottery Barn has doormats, hallway runners, entryway rugs, indoor / outdoor rus for your patio, natural fiber rugs and custom rugs. There are shag, Moroccan, Persian style and one of a kind rugs. A current sale allows you to purchase a beautiful wool rug for 40% off, so you can, for instance, get a full size Adeline rug for only $699, down from $1,059.
