Prime Day vs. 4th of July mattress sales
We now know that Prime Day 2022 will begin on Tuesday, July 12. The 48-hour event will usher in a flood of deals on everything from 4K TVs to mattresses. However, we generally recommend making your mattress purchases direct from mattress manufacturers. Sure, Amazon has a few mattress exclusives, but mattress manufacturers generally offer the best pricing. Oftentimes, mattress manufacturers bundle freebies with your mattress purchase — such as free sheets or pillows — that Amazon doesn’t offer. Either way, make sure to follow our Prime Day coverage for the best deals on mattresses.
Tips for buying a mattress on 4th of July
Buying a mattress is a major investment, so it pays to do some homework before making a purchase. Because prices are so low, many people wait specifically for 4th of July mattress sales to buy a new mattress, but that doesn’t always guarantee you’ll get the best deal or the best bed for your budget. Here are a few tips to ensure you get the best 4th of July mattress sale possible.
- Look for dollar-off discounts instead of percentages: Flashy slogans like 25% off are designed to grab your attention. But a percentage off means nothing if you don’t know the dollar-off discount. Always look at the original price and the final/discounted price before you make a final buying decision, that way you’ll know just how much you really saved.
- Shop around for mattress coupons: The vast majority of mattress manufacturers offer coupons that can save you a few extra dollars or get you a free bedding bundle with your mattress purchase. Helix, for instance, usually has coupons that knock from $100 to $200 off your mattress purchase (opens in new tab).
- Look for freebies with your purchase: Dollar-off discounts are the way to go when it comes to shopping for a new mattress. But we also recommend looking for freebies that can sweeten your purchase even more. Nectar, which makes our favorite mattress of all time, always offers free $399 bedding bundle (opens in new tab) with its mattress purchases. The bundle includes a free mattress protector, sheet set, and pillows.
- Find the best warranty possible: The downside to online mattress shopping is that you can’t try out a mattress before you buy it. Fortunately, most mattress manufacturers offer extended trials accompanied by warranties that last 10 or more years. Nectar, for example, offers a 365-night home trial (opens in new tab) bundled with a forever warranty (opens in new tab). To be fair, not all mattress retailers are as generous, but it’s worth knowing the warranty and return policy before buying your new mattress.
- Invest as much as you can: A mattresses is something you buy maybe once every 10 years. It’s also something you use for hours every day. As a result, you’ll want to invest in a good mattress, rather than opting for the cheapest mattress you can find. Not only will your back thank you, but you’ll also avoid having to buy a new mattress more frequently.
