Buying a mattress is one of the most important purchases you will be making. Pick the wrong one and you waste hundreds if not thousands of dollars and end up with aches and pains on top of it all. The good news is that with a little planning and a lot of research you can get yourself the best quality mattress for your budget and be happy with your investment. We learned a few tricks when my husband worked at one of the top furniture stores in our state and I am here to share some of these tips with you.
Online mattress shopping tips
Don’t be afraid to go into a store to try out mattresses given if you plan to make your purchase online. Everyone is different on what they like in a bed so having an idea of what firmness and style you prefer can make buying the right mattress for you easier. If you are looking for a new bed for you and your partner who are not used to sharing a bed and are moving in together you should go in together to see what works best for the both of you.
When shopping online, make sure you have time to return the product for free if it hasn’t worked out. As someone who has never tried a mattress and has no idea if the firmness is right for them, it is best to avoid spending a lot of money on something you cannot return.
Look for brands that stand by the quality of their product. This is one thing we love about the Nectar bed we got my son years ago. It is super soft and comfortable and made to last but the best part is the 365-day guarantee allowing you to know if the bed is right for you before you are stuck with it and the forever warranty so you can trust that your bed won’t fall apart right after the warranty runs out.
Check the reviews when shopping for a mattress online. This will allow you to see what other customers didn’t like about the product. the truth is most people get on and do a review without an incentive when they are angry about something. These reviews speak a lot of truth and can be the perfect guide to finding out the quality of the product you are buying and how their customer service is.
Tips for shopping for a mattress in-store
Check the reviews. Just because you are shopping in-store doesn’t mean that you do not need to purchase online at all. Go online and check the reviews of the mattresses you are considering. This will allow you to see companions from customers to save your time and money on a product that has a history of falling apart rather quickly. Reviews are the most effective way to find out the most problematic parts of a product you are buying as people tend to leave reviews when they are angry. A quick google search of the brand and product number will pull up any reviews for the mattress you are looking at.
When buying a mattress for you and your partner to share, you should both participate in the shopping process. By doing this, you will ensure that both of you will have a good night’s sleep on the best mattress. Others may suggest more than one mattress and a connecter to ensure that you both get the most restful night’s sleep possible.
Pay attention to the details. Look at the details of the mattress you’re considering. Does it have strong stitching? Does the topper have a removable washable cover so it is easier to take care of? Is the mattress light enough for you to lift to put on sheets or is it too heavy? In addition to affecting the life of the product, these things can also affect how easy it is to maintain.
Don’t let your salesperson pressure you into buying before you have fully made up your mind. This is a great way to land yourself with the wrong bed for you which can be more than frustrating. don’t be afraid to walk away and come back at another time or to ask for another salesperson that could help you. Remember they are paid on commission so they may feel the drive to push for a bigger faster sale.
Look for a store that carries trusted quality brands. While you can find a lot of cheaper brands on the market you want to buy from a store that holds quality well-known brands alongside the others. This shows that they do know a bit about mattresses and are not would to sell only the cheapest junk they can find but better quality products. Look for a trusted brand like Seely. If they do not have any go find a different store.
How to find a great deal on a mattress
Discounts and sales are worth looking for. Mattresses can often be found for a great price around tax time. There is a lot of disposable income available right now, so furniture companies are completing to get as much of it as they can. If you can, plan your mattress shopping at this time.
Look for coupons and promotions. No matter when you need to conduct mattress shopping, you can usually find some great deals if you shop around. Do not buy your mattress the first place you visit. Go online to read reviews and compare prices after you have found a mattress that you like. This will allow you to get the most competitive deal possible.
You should check with your credit card company. You may be entitled to a discount for large purchases made at several retailers. As a result, most credit card companies will cover the discount and extra warranties. To ensure the cheapest deal, make sure to pay it off immediately to avoid paying interest.
Warranties and guarantees on your mattress
When shopping for a mattress, be sure to ask about any warranties or guarantees that are offered. Today, most mattress companies offer good guarantees that allow you to try the product for a few nights. You can then return it if you decide it is not the right fit for your family.
Damage to the mattress or manufacturing defects are covered by warranties. Some high-end furniture stores will offer you an additional one so that you can protect your purchase and get a replacement quickly and easily if you need it.
A mattress that doesn’t come with these key features should not be purchased. Quality mattress companies will believe in their products and will want their customers to feel confident about making such a significant purchase.
Protect your mattress after purchase.
The price of a mattress can range from hundreds to even thousands of dollars. Due to this, you need to be careful once you have made your purchase.
Cover your mattress with a waterproof, pest-proof cover. This may be included in your furniture purchase as part of an insurance or warranty program. You should purchase this separately if your store does not offer it. This will protect your new bed from pests, children, food, and other forms of pests that are known to spread through neighborhoods, such as bedbugs.
Consider purchasing an upholstery cleaner that will help you keep your bed in the best condition possible if you do not use a cover. People who do not have pets or children and live in an area where getting bed bugs from neighbors is not a problem can benefit from this option.
