When is the Best Time to Buy a Mattress?

The holidays are here, and most savvy shoppers are looking for deals. From Black Friday to Cyber Monday, ‘tis the season to find a sale on all kinds of gadgets, clothes, home goods, and more. So, what about mattresses? When is the best time to get a mattress deal? Here are our thoughts on your best chance to score a great price on a new mattress.

Holiday deals

Holiday sales are prevalent across all industries, especially the sleep industry. During national holidays, you’ll find deep discounts on in-store mattress purchases. Labor Day, President’s Day, the Fourth of July, Martin Luther King Day, and Memorial Day are all popular holidays and/or long weekends for mattress sales. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, you’ll likely find Black Friday deals at retailers and online.

Online offers

Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, is a popular day for serious discounts if you’re buying online.

You can also find year-round discounts on mattresses by signing up for retailers’ newsletters. For example, at Mattress Man, our newsletter subscribers are the first to know about special offers, discounts, sales and coupons. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, it pays off to subscribe early and then be on the lookout for deals.

New models

According to sleep.org, and in keeping with our experience in the mattress industry, new mattress models (with updated technology) are typically available in stores between May and September. So May is often the best month of the year to get a mattress deal, as older models are marked down to make room for new models.

Clearance outlet

Visit the new Mattress Man Clearance Outlet in Asheville. It’s the place to find big markdowns on high quality mattresses. The Clearance Outlet is a great way to buy a premium bed for a much lower price.

Used mattresses

Don’t do it. It’s absolutely not worth it — so much so that we wrote a whole blog post dedicated to the subject.

If you’ve decided that it’s time to buy a new mattress, or it’s time to upgrade your current mattress, the good news is that there are lots of ways to save on a new bed all year. During the holidays, you might save enough on your mattress to upgrade your entire bed!
