Renovate or furnish your home for free with #FindItKeepIt? If that sounds crazy to you, you aren’t alone. But my friends, it’s a true story, and even better, you can help influence which products are offered for free each week in a weekly Find It. Keep It. promotion and fun filled hunt for ‘the goods’ from BuildDirect. Let’s be honest, renovating is expensive, even with a sincere DIY attitude, the materials alone are costly. Sacrificing the finishes you want or need because they are too costly can also be costly on the resale value of your home later. It’s really quite a tricky line to walk between choosing the best materials and keeping an eye toward budget.
My personal style is eclectic and constantly evolving, but one thing that doesn’t change is my love for and need for an honesty of materials in my space. I have always wanted a kitchen with marble and a backyard with a gorgeous deck in the sun. I have a bit of an obsession with a few of these finishes, truth be told, and honestly a substitute won’t do. With my love of marble n particular, I find myself quickly priced right out of the game with no happy compromise for this poor sad girl. But what if you could snag yourself some of these things for free? It would be worthy of a happy dance, no? The items that BuildDirect sells are offered at a remarkable price with free samples and easy reliable service. By connecting the buyers directly with the manufacturers, they can offer products like flooring, decking, and even patio furniture for less, time, effort and money. But it’s the Find It Keep It promotion that is uber exciting to me (and you of course, right?). This program gives consumers a chance to find and keep new home improvement products, absolutely free with free shipping anywhere in the US and Canada.
So here is how this works… Each Tuesday, BuildDirect sends out a sneak peek email with new items potentially up for grabs (sign up here, Find It. Keep It. to receive those emails). Throughout the week you can pin those items you adore, to your own Pinterest Boards with the hashtag #FindItKeepIt and by tagging @builddirect, and help influence which items will end up in the promotional event, which will launch the following Friday. The items will be offered for free with a certain quantity of each available, and all you need to do is snatch it up, and it will ship for free right to your doorstep, no strings attached. But don’t worry, another email is sent out a few hours before the event is live with the exact start time, so you don’t have to set an alarm and check every 5 minutes. Then it’s up to you to get on the site, hunt down the items with ‘free’ or ‘get it first’, and those beauties, whatever they may be are yours!
Some of my current faves can be seen above. The outdoor decking material in a gray finish (1) is amazing and those marble tiles (2), yes please… the travertine tiles (3) are in that class of products a bit like the wood look porcelain tiles and I adore this as a more affordable option that does in fact get the look, without missing the mark.
Like BuildDirect on Facebook or follow BuildDirect on Twitter to stay up to date and of course tell your friends and fam to help you by pinning your faves as well so you can increase your chances of getting the products you love into that free round up of items for that week! At least that would be my plan! Hint hint…
