Mattress Store Saving Tips

Off-Brand – Save money on the off brand name mattresses. Major manufacturer brands product mattress under a different name. These “off-brand mattresses”s are made of the same warehouse, using the same materials at the fraction of the price. An example mattress line is Serta’s and its off-brand line Five Star Mattress.

Overstock – Shop the store for overstock mattresses. I know first hand that when we overstock our warehouse with several mattresses, we decide to lower prices to help us move out inventory. When shopping for a mattress ask the store if they have an excessive mattress inventory. Note that it might only be only specific models.

Closeout – Find the deals in the closeouts. Every year mattress stores received new models. February and August are the best times due to the national Furniture & Mattress Market in Las Vegas. During this time mattress manufacturers show their new items to retail stores. This is when stores decide to close out their current mattress models. During this time you can find deals on last year modles .

Size Option – Buy a smaller size mattress. If you are in the market for a queen mattress, opt-out for a full-size mattress. The size difference is 5″ in length and 6″ in width. This will also save you money on the mattress, sheets, and bed frame.
I have also found that cal king mattress is less priced that a king size.

Negotiate Price – Negotiating will get you a better deal. Find the competitors prices on your phone and use this as proof. Mattress stores are willing to knock a few dollars off if you have evidence that you are shopping at different stores.

Ask For Extras – Now, this tip will not save you money but you might walk out with a freebie. Ask the store for free pillow set, metal bed frame, mattress removal or a mattress delivery. All the free options are possible as long as you ask!

Keep Box Spring – Keep your current box spring. The box spring is an extra charge that goes unnoticed. First confirm that your current box foundation is in a condition that will support your new mattress.

Display Model – Purchase the display mattress on the showroom floor. Display model mattresses are kept in great codition and have never been slept on.
