Here are a few online stores I found to get you started.
These stores have specials or clearance sections, as well as, regular sales.
Visit as many online baby stores as you can find. Check which ones carry nursery room rugs that fit with your nursery design. Sign up for the newsletter on these sites. The newsletter will inform you of upcoming sales and specials. If the site does not have a newsletter, check back often to see if there is a sale.

Other Great Money Saving Tips
Here are a few free shipping options I have found:
- Remember to take shipping costs into account when you are doing your price comparisons. Some online stores offer free or low flat-rate shipping. This is a huge saving!
- Buy the right type of baby room rug.
Bear these general guidelines in mind:
- Natural fiber rugs usually cost more than synthetic fiber rugs, with wool being the most expensive.
- Hand-made rugs are more costly than machine-made rugs with good reason. A good hand-knotted rug can take more than a year to complete.
- The denser the weave of the rug, the better it will wear and the more it will set you back.
- The tighter the yarn twist, the more expensive, and the more durable the rug will be.
Because the baby nursery is a low traffic area, with decor that will change on a short-term basis, durability needn't be at the top of your priority list.
A natural fiber baby room rug is only necessary if you are worried about allergies. If you do want a natural fiber nursery rug and your baby nursery budget is limited, opt for a rug with lowish density and yarn twist.
