Point blank, mattresses are so expensive because they are so important. And they are made of high-quality materials, too. Yet that doesn’t mean you have to liquidate your savings to buy a new bed. There are savings to be had, and you just have to locate those discounts, whether shopping online or in person. Let’s talk about budgeting your mattress purchase so that you can find the best deal.
The great thing about mattresses is that you can often score some wonderful deals, saving you hundreds of dollars. How do you do that? Well, there are certainly plenty of sales going on, especially around the holidays. But there are also other creative ways to save money. I will go over the creative ways, but first, do make sure that a mattress company is having an actual sale.
Why do I give that advice? While there are other ways to save money, let me just say that a mattress sale is always around the corner. You aren’t going to want to jump and get a mattress that isn’t on sale when it will be selling for a different price a few weeks later. What you want to do is make sure that you get a good deal from the get go. Then you’re also going to take a look at other money saving opportunities.
For example, you can sometimes get a frame and/or a box spring mattress for free. That would be great, wouldn’t it? Let’s say, however, that you want a more elaborate frame. It’s true that those frames can be costly and are a separate expense. Yet you can get a nice frame and a mattress on sale. It’s all in what you want.
To save money, you might also look at buying a mattress in a box. That’s a good idea these days, and you can score a significant discount. When you do get that mattress, you’re going to be happy that you were able to get such a great deal on a premium product. And with the mattresses in boxes has come a cool trend where you skip the box spring and get a platform frame. These frames eliminate the need for a box spring mattress, saving you money.
And then there are the rewards cards. If you have a credit card or even a debit card that features rewards, why not put it into action? If you’re going to carry a balance on a credit card, that’s not really going to save you money. But if you use a card that you’re going to pay the balance on anyway, and you get cash back, that’s extra savings.
And if you’re shopping online, try starting your purchase with a cash back site. That could double your savings. If you happened to tick all the boxes mentioned, you would be saving a ton of money on your bed purchase. Now you know more about finding the best deal on a mattress and everything else you need for your bedroom.
