Adairs Linen Lovers may be one of the most popular Australian loyalty programs when it comes to quality homewares, but it's also one of the few that comes with a recurring membership fee.
So is it actually worth it?
We took a look at all things Linen Lovers to ascertain whether this club lives up to its price tag.

Is Linen Lovers Worth Joining?
If you're a loyal Adairs shopper, value quality linen and furnishings, and are likely to purchase at least once a year from Adairs, it's a resounding YES from us. Here's why:
The Membership pays for itself fast!
When you take into account that standard shipping is $9.95 at Adairs (for orders under $150), it's very easy to have your membership pay for itself in your very first order.
For example, with a Linen Lovers membership, an order of $100 would entitle you to savings of $19.95 ($10 discount + $9.95 shipping) - so you will have saved the full amount of your membership in one fell swoop, AND you have the benefit of two full years to enjoy those perks.
It's very worthwhile for parents
Parents will know all too well how often kids enter new phases, and want new furnishings to match their ever-changing interests. In just one year, a child can go from being obsessed with dinosaurs to being way too big for any such thing!
Having the Linen Lovers membership makes it more affordable to keep up with what the kids want, while having peace of mind that you're buying quality products.
The club also helps in a big way when it comes to exquisite gift ideas like cushions, garlands, plush toys - even teepees, all of which make a refreshing change to mainstream toys.
The exclusive Linen Lovers sales are next level!
One of the biggest perks of Linen Lovers, aside from free shipping, is the exclusive Linen Lovers sale events that occur a few times each year. Expect savings of around 40% off storewide, with up to 20% extra off sale items. savings can reach up to 80%, and that's not something you want to miss!
There are many places to use your membership
Adairs Linen Lovers membership perks can be used at Adairs, Adairs Kids, Adairs Outlet, Urban Home Republic, and all Adairs concession stores. You can also use your membership at Adairs online.
Extended returns are very welcome at Christmas
Returns can be tricky when it comes to Christmas gifts, because by the time a recipient get around to actually returning an item, the 30-day returns window has often passed.
With Linen Lovers, you get 60-day returns, twice the usual window, and it's fabulous for those of us who like to get our Christmas shopping done early.
