Cheap mattress deals online — Where to find them

Holidays are — not surprisingly — the best time of year for mattress sales. November, in particular, is a great month for mattress deals with many manufacturers offering their lowest prices of the year. However, if you need a cheap mattress deal now — there are many mattress deals available that you can take advantage of. The best places to look are generally the mattress manufacturers. Nectar, Saatva, Purple, and Amerisleep, for instance, usually have various mattress deals you can take advantage of on any given day of the week. 

Mattress deals — tips to remember

  • Never pay full price: Labor Day, Black Friday/Cyber Monday, Memorial Day, and July 4th are generally the best time of the year for mattress deals. (If we had to pick one holiday — Black Friday/Cyber Monday would be the one we recommend). However, even if you're nowhere near a major holiday, most mattress companies offer mattress deals year-round. So you should never pay full price for any mattress. 
  • Know your return policy: Buying a new mattress — especially these days — can be tricky. Perhaps you're relying on user reviews or word of mouth. Or maybe you've already tried the mattress and have finally found the right mattress deal. Either way, you should always know the mattress' return policy should you have to return it. Some companies offer 100-night trials with free return shipping and no penalty fees , whereas others offer 18-months trials with similar shipping policies.
