Summer is almost here and to help kick-start that summertime feeling Memorial Day is fast approaching and with it, bringing one of the biggest mattress sales of the year.
Discounts will be coming at you left, right and center both online and in-store, but with so many different types of mattresses, brands, and deals floating around, how do you know if it’s actually a good deal or not?
Do Your Research
Each mattress type, whether memory foam, innerspring, latex or more have key factors that you need to look into that can tell you whether or not this is a mattress that will last the test of time and most importantly whether the deal that’s caught your eye is actually good value or not.
Looking for a memory foam mattress? Be sure to look into things such as density, temperature, and breathability, not to mention durability and longevity. Be sure to check out some customer reviews of the mattress online, has anyone had any issues with this mattress?
Maybe an innerspring mattress is more your style. If so, make sure you’ve done your research into the coil counts and type, the quality of the layers and of course, the durability. These mattresses tend to be more on the pricier side so as long as you’ve compared these factors, you should be sure that you’re getting good value for your hard-earned money.
If you’ve completed your research early and you already know what type of mattress you want and what exactly to look for to make sure you’re getting the absolute deal then you’re halfway there to being completely prepared to pounce on your mattress of choice when you see the right deal.
You also need to prepare yourself for the different types of deals that will come your way. Do you want a discount, a rebate or would you prefer to find yourself a bundle deal?
Discounts tend to be more common with the cheaper side of mattress brands, applying an instant amount of money off for you to buy then and there. Some more upmarket brands tend to sway more towards the rebate side of things, meaning you have to pay the full price at first and then claim some of your money back later, this could be in cash or vouchers for the brand or store.
But, if you’re looking for more than just a new mattress, perhaps a new base, foundation or bedding, then a bundle deal might work out best for you. So, be aware of what’s out there and be prepared.
Look into the returns policy of the store you’re buying from, you want to have the peace of mind that you can bring it back and not be stuck with a mattress that isn’t right for you if need be.
Luckily there are some sites that are helping you keep track of some of the best Memorial Day mattress sales going this year, so keep your eyes peeled and you’ll be sleeping peacefully in your new bed in no time.
