“Sweet dreams begin with good mattress” – Author Unknown
Ideally, we spend a third of our lives in bed. Therefore, doesn’t it make sense that we should prioritize what we lie on during that time? However, for one reason or another, many people use their mattress long past its expiration date. This not only stops you from getting the sleep you need, but it can also bring about a variety of pains and exacerbate your symptoms if you have allergies. For your health’s sake, consider if your mattress is good for you, choose the right one if you need a new mattress, and take care of your mattress so that it lasts longer.
These are 3 tips on how to score the best deal on a brand new mattress that will definitely improve your sleep.
1. Start With a Model-Specific Search
The easiest way to begin? Turn to Google—but instead of searching for the brand you’re interested in, search for the specific mattress model and add the word “discount” or “coupon” to the search bar. When we searched for the Voila hybrid innerspring, $1,200, which scores well in our tests, several 10 percent coupon codes popped up.
Of course, you’ll need to test these codes on the retailer’s website when you prepare to check out to make sure they’re accurate and up to date. You may even find different prices at different retailers during this search. Note which website offers the best price—better yet, take a quick screenshot. In the end, if you decide to buy through a different site (because, say, it has free shipping or a better return policy), you can use the information to haggle for a better price.
2. Look Closely at the Retailer’s Website
Many bed-in-a-box mattresses are sold exclusively online at the maker’s website, and they tend to offer generous return policies—but you might not find the same mattress anywhere else. Once you arrive on the company’s main page, take a look around for current promotions. The site might highlight a deal on its home page. For example, Cocoon by Sealy, which we tested, has run website promotions for $75 off any mattress, or $125 off a mattress and foundation set. Often, retailers apply restrictions to such promotions, so be sure to check the fine print.
3. Get what you pay for
When it comes to good back health – don’t cut corners! No bed will last forever, but when you invest in one that is made of high quality materials and can offer you the back support you need, you’ll be sure to get your money’s worth. A $2000 dollar mattress will cost 55c per night over 10 years or 28c each if with a partner.
