8 Best Times Of Year To Save Big On A Mattress (Plus More Secrets to Save)
You’ll probably only buy a mattress once in a decade, but it’s still a big investment. How big? That often depends on when you decide to make a purchase—because some times are better than others (trust us). Here’s exactly when you should whip out your credit card to save money on a mattress.
1. Presidents Day
Our founding fathers could write a declaration on the importance of a good night’s sleep. Maybe that’s why we honor them with a three-day weekend full of mattress sales (it’s the least we could do). Mattress brands, like Nectar, offer huge markdowns, and may even add extra perks, like expedited shipping.
2. Memorial Day
Kick off the summer—and your weekend nap life—by getting the new bed of your dreams. Even if you don’t think you need a new mattress, the extremely low prices might convince you to buy one (hey, you’re being proactive!).
Secret Saving Tip! Expect to find excellent deals all summer long, as many retailers offer discounts to clear their inventory before fall.
3. 4th of July
You know what’ll make you sparkle like a firework? Sleeping on a new mattress you bought at a fraction of the price. Mattress stores may offer sales throughout July and August to tap into the busiest season for home shoppers and movers. Click here to find out why moving is the best time to buy a new mattress!
Secret Saving Tip! You may not be thinking about back-to-school yet, but retailers are! Watch out for mattress sales from the end of July through the end of August.
4. Labor Day
As the summer winds down, you’re ready to get serious about life again. And finding the right mattress can help you feel more energized about tackling your to-do list. Plus, having an extra day off work gives you more time to shop.
5. Veteran’s Day
Gear up for a well-rested Thanksgiving (for once) by buying a new mattress during a Veteran’s Day sale. Military members may even receive an additional discount.
6. Daylight Saving & Surprise Sales
Sleep takes center stage whenever there’s a time change, so be on the lookout for mattress flash sales from your favorite brands (Nectar has DST sales, FYI!). The best way to find out about these deals, or any other “birthday sale” or “customer love” discount brands offer on a whim, is to stalk them on social. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook. Sign up for their emails. That way, you’ll be the first to know!
7. Black Friday and Cyber Monday
Known as the most epic shopping days of the year, people wait months for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to come around, and for good reason. And with all the holiday parting and late-night online shopping ahead, your new bed will be a gift that keeps on giving.
8. New Year’s
Chances are you got ZERO rest over the holidays and have a major sleep deprivation hangover. Or maybe you want to live healthier in the New Year, starting with better sleep.
Whatever the reason, if you’re hatching a healthy living resolution, you’ll probably find a sweet deal on a mattress you’ll love. And you can rest easy knowing you found a bargain.
Secret Saving Tip! Look for Whites Sales throughout January, where retailers offer deals on bedding and linens, a perfect pairing for your new mattress.
