Discount Solar Shades Price Survey

Posted June 14th, 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. We plan to do these surveys on a regular basis varying the focus each time. Today the focus is on the increasingly popular window treatment, the solar shade.

*House brand taken as least expensive vendor brand option
Solar Shade Prices Quoted for 36″ x 60″
Vendor Bali Solar Shade Phifer Sheerweave Hunter Douglas Designer Screen House Brand*
Blinds.com $108 $60 N/A N/A
BlindsGalore.com $128 N/A $164 $89
JustBlinds.com N/A N/A N/A $61

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. For more information on individual vendors and their price matching programs check out our review of online window treatment vendors.
