YOU FIGURE IT’S high time you replaced that mattress you’ve been lugging from one apartment to the next, or the one that’s been a fixture in your house for years. You know that a new mattress is an important investment that can last you for years (in fact, a quality mattress could last you a decade or longer). But with such a big purchase, how do you get the most bed for your buck?
Follow this guide for finding mattress deals and for getting the most value from your purchase:
Unless you need a new mattress right away, it might be a good idea to hold off until you can find a mattress sale. Just like with other big-ticket items such as cars, mattress sales pop up throughout the year. You’ll usually find mattress deals during the long weekends around patriotic holidays– think Presidents’ Day in February, Memorial Day in May and Labor Day in September. In fact, U.S. News says you can expect a discount of 10 to 25 percent during Presidents’ Day weekend.
In the mattress world, you have a lot of options to choose from. That gives you the flexibility to find a mattress that meets your priorities. So if an affordable price is your top priority, you can choose the model that fits your budget.
Value is also important, so it’s a good idea to choose a cost-effective mattress that will last a long time instead of one that’s so cheap you’ll have to replace it in a few years.
Certain materials offer more durability than others, which is relevant to both the support and comfort layers of mattresses. The most durable support materials include latex foam, high-quality tempered steel innersprings, and high-resilient (HR) and high-density (HD) polyfoam, says The Mattress Underground. In the comfort top part, the more durable materials tend to be latex foam, solid gel and natural fibers.
Aside from the mattress itself, you also want to look into the return policy and warranty offered by mattress retailer and the mattress manufacturer, if it’s separate. Many stores offer return policies for returning or exchanging a mattress within a period of time, often 60 to 120 days. But check the fine print because there can be conditions on returning the product. In the same vein, compare warranties because different mattress qualities and brands can have varying warranties.
Buying a Verlo mattress can offer real peace of mind with its Lifetime Comfort Guarantee. If your comfort preferences change, Verlo will perform its one-of-a-kind Comfort Adjustment service in which we’ll adjust the firmness or softness of your mattress for you.
This service can help you save money in the long run by giving you a cost-effective way to get what you need without buying a new mattress. You won’t have buyer’s remorse and you can change the firmness if your needs ever change. (For most models, the first Comfort Adjustment is free during the first year.)
Hopefully will help you make the best choice for your wallet (and your sleep!) for both the short and long term.
