Cash in the Bank

I’ve always loved playing games and taking quizzes, so today I devised a little quiz game called Cash in the Bank.  I’m going to ask a series of questions about two similar pieces of furniture to see if you can tell which one is the least expensive.  The more answers you get right, the more cash you’ll have in the bank.  The answers will appear at the bottom of the post.  No peeking!

1) One of the chaises below is $3698.00 and the other is $579.00.   Can you tell which one is lower priced?

A)

OR

B)

2) What about these ottomans?  One is on sale for $419 (down from $499) and the other is almost double that at $910.  Which one do you think cost the least?

A)

OR

B)

3) Dining room tables can range from a few hundred dollars to many thousands of dollars.  The tables below are nearly identical but one is $499.00 and the other $999.00.  Can you tell which one would save you $500.00?

A)

OR

B)

4) Lounge chairs are great for relaxing and you could have practically have two for the price of one if you can guess the least expensive of these two.

A)

OR

B)

How do you think you did?

The answers are as follows:

1) B is from Urban Outfitters and is the less expensive option at $579.00.  Compare that to the $3698.00 chaise from Anthropologie and you’ve saved $3119.00!

2) B is currently on sale at Z Gallerie for $419 which is $491.00 less than the ottoman from Restoration Hardware!

3) B is the less expensive dining room table, so even though they’re both from Pottery Barn one cost $500 more than the other

4) A is a $249 lounge chair from IKEA compared to a similar chair for $449 from Pottery Barn

If you chose all the least expensive furniture options you would have spent a total of $1746.00 compared to the $6056.00 you would have paid on all the most expensive pieces.  It doesn’t always make sense to buy the least expensive furniture, but in today’s economy who wouldn’t love to have an extra $4310.00 of Cash in the Bank?
