Blackout Shades Price Survey

Posted March 30th, 2008 in Purchase by BLINDFinder

As we’ve discussed in our guide to ordering blinds online, price is just one component to focus on when selecting a window treatments vendor. However, price is often a critical factor… after all, you’re most likely purchasing online in order to save money. To this end, we have scoured the web for the best prices available. Below is a chart depicting the results of this survey. In this edition of the price survey, we focus on blackout shades. If you’re curious to learn more about this product, take a look at our article on blackout shades (survey date 3/26/08).

As a sidebar, all prices listed exclude current promotions, as we felt this skewed the results. Also, the survey doesn’t factor in price matching programs, which can get you a lower price, but can be difficult to get the vendor to act on.
