Wondering when is the best time of year to buy a new mattress? Well, that’s a great question! Retailers offer many specials throughout the year, and some are worth waiting for!
Mattress retailers typically offer savings and incentives around major holidays like Independence Day and Labor Day. There are also deals during the spring when companies clean out their inventories to make way for next year’s models. In addition to the timing, your location, mattress size, and the type of mattress you prefer also affect the price of your mattress.
The best time to buy a mattress is when you realize you need one, no matter what time of year. Several indicators will signal when it is time to start researching and shopping for an upgrade.
Significant weight changes can also change how well you sleep in your bed. People who are smaller (under 150 pounds) usually find that plusher mattresses allow them to maintain a neutral spine. Average-sized people with a weight between 150 to 200 pounds will often prefer a medium-firm mattress and those over 200 pounds often choose a firmer mattress.
Pricing of a mattress varies depending on the brand, materials, and size of a mattress. King and queen mattresses will be at the higher end of the price spectrum and full and twin mattresses will be on the lower end. The materials that make up your mattress tend to have the biggest impact on price. Mattresses made from cheaper materials tend not to last as long and will show signs of wear in a relatively short timeframe. Higher-end mattresses will last longer and offer a better feel than their cheaper counterparts. Traditional innerspring or memory foam mattresses are best for those with a smaller budget. Hybrid and latex mattresses typically cost more because of the raw material costs and they require a more complicated manufacturing process. Memory foam mattresses are not created equally, though. The denser three- to four-pound foams will last longer and can actually save you money in the long run.
It’s wise to buy the highest-quality mattress you can afford, as it will pay for itself in the long run.
Higher-quality mattresses tend to remain supportive and indentation-free for up to 15 years. Cheaper memory foam mattresses can start breaking down in as little as two years, forcing you to buy two mattresses when you could have just purchased one! Choosing a mattress that you will sleep on for seven to 10 years can feel daunting, but the Mattress World Northwest sleep specialists are highly trained and will help you make the right decision.
Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Black Friday/Cyber Monday are typically the biggest holidays offering savings on mattresses.
Here’s a breakdown of the main holidays that retailers offer discounts:
On top of discounted prices, retailers will often throw in freebies like mattress protectors, bases, or other useful sleep items. Adjustable foundations are becoming all the rage these days, as people work remotely and generally spend more time at home. Combined with the health benefits for sufferers of sleep apnea, reflux, and other disorders, adjustable bases make your bed more than just a place to sleep. Be on the lookout for free adjustable base upgrades during some of the bigger sales.
There is no “best month” to buy a mattress, as there are great mattress deals year-round, especially around holidays. Besides holidays, you can find deals shortly after the new year and again around March and April when retailers are cleaning out inventory to make way for a wave of newer models.
