What holidays do mattresses go on sale?
Why are there mattress sales on Presidents’ Day?
Presidents’ Day, a federal holiday honoring George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, is celebrated on the third Monday in February every year. It’s also become a day synonymous with mattress sales, much like Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Black Friday.
That’s because people tend to buy things—especially big-ticket items like mattresses—more over long weekends. A long weekend gives you plenty of time to comparison shop and research around your purchase.
Is Presidents’ Day a good time to buy a mattress?
Presidents’ Day is one of the biggest days for mattress sales, which means you’ll certainly save money if you buy a new one this time of year. But it’s always a good idea to do your research before buying any big-ticket item. After all, you’ll be spending the next 10 (or more!) years on your new mattress, so you want to make sure you do your due diligence.
To figure out if you’re getting a quality mattress, start by taking a look at what’s inside the mattress. A good mattress company will provide diagrams with detailed descriptions and precise specifications for each layer in a mattress. A quality mattress should have added lumbar support to keep your spine in proper alignment, cooling features so you don’t wake up sweating in the middle of the night, and materials that are free of harmful chemicals.
You should also read the fine print before purchasing any big-ticket item so you know exactly what you’re getting into when it comes to delivery, returns, and more.
Some mattress companies, like Saatva, offer free white glove delivery, which includes setup of your new bed and removal of your old mattress. Many retail stores charge extra for this service. And while beds in boxes usually ship for free, you have to handle setup on your own—and a queen mattress can weigh more than 90 pounds.
What is the best time to buy a mattress?
Holiday weekends, like Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, and Black Friday are a great time to buy a mattress because there are so many sales happening. In fact, you can typically expect to save 10% to 20% on a mattress during a holiday promotion.
You don’t have to shop during a holiday weekend to snag a good deal on a mattress, though. When you buy a mattress online, you can save money year-round. In general, you can expect to spend 15% less on a mattress when you buy it online, versus in-store. That’s because selling online eliminates retail store overhead, including store rents and sales commissions.
Online mattress companies, like Saatva, can pass those savings onto you in the form of low prices every day, regardless of whether or not it’s a holiday weekend.
Should I purchase in-store or online?
This Presidents’ Day weekend, consider buying a mattress online rather than going to a store. When you buy a mattress from a retail store, you end up paying for more than just the mattress. That’s because these stores have a wide range of costs they have to cover, including rent, sales, commissions, and inventory fees. Inevitably those fees are worked into the price of the mattress.
According to Consumer Reports, many mattress stores, particularly the national chains, mark up their products so high that they’re able to lower prices by 50% or more during sales. That’s not all, though. Oftentimes, mattress models are labeled with different names in different stores, meaning it can be impossible to truly know whether you’re getting that good of a deal.
Online mattress companies eliminate the middleman by selling directly to you online. The direct-to-consumer relationship allows online mattress companies, like Saatva, to offer their products for a consistently low price. You can typically expect to pay 15% less for a mattress when you shop online.
How much should I pay for a good mattress?
Mattress prices can range a whole lot, with some coming in at just a few hundred dollars and others with price tags in the tens of thousands. That said, a quality mattress made with premium materials generally costs in the $1,000 to $3,500 range.
What is the best type of mattress to have?
No one mattress type is inherently better than another. The one that’s best for you comes down to your personal preferences.
An innerspring mattress is the most common type of mattress and has that essential springiness you’re familiar with in a mattress. It consists of a coil support system, and these days usually contains layers of memory foam or latex on top of the base for added comfort and durability. (This is often referred to as a hybrid mattress.)
An innerspring mattress accommodates lots of different sleep styles and preferences. If you sleep with a partner, choose one with individually-wrapped coils to cut down on motion transfer so you won’t feel each other move while you sleep.
A memory foam mattress is made from viscoelastic foam, a type of high-density polyurethane foam. Memory foam softens in response to heat and pressure, resulting in a body-hugging feel many people love. Memory foam does an excellent job of relieving joint pain and minimizing motion transfer, however, it can sleep hot. It’s also not ideal for people weighing more than 200 pounds.
A latex mattress is made of natural latex, with several layers of varying thickness and density. Latex offers the “best of both worlds” between innerspring and memory foam as its responsive yet conforming. When you sleep on a latex mattress, you’ll feel like you’re floating on top.
Latex is very breathable, so it’s a good option for people who sleep hot. It’s also a great choice for those with allergies since it’s a naturally hypoallergenic material.
