When Is the Best Time to Buy a Mattress?

Tossing and turning night after night? Waking up with aches and pains? Struggling for space when sharing the bed with your partner and pets? While millions of Americans deal with these and other common sleep issues every night, we often put off what is most likely to help – buying a new mattress!

Mattress shopping often feels like a daunting task, especially since there are more options available to shoppers today than ever before. That’s why many dealing with poor sleep turn to other potential solutions like over-the-counter sleep aids, sleep apps, or lifestyle modifications before they make the commitment to buy a new mattress. While these things can certainly help with falling asleep faster, they won’t address the issues that an old, worn out and uncomfortable mattress can cause.

Because you don’t need another thing to lose sleep over, we’re going to take the guesswork out of knowing when it’s time to shop for a new mattress as well as when is the best time to buy so you can get the comfort and support you need at the best value.

Do I Really Need a New Mattress?

Buying a new mattress may not seem as fun as buying new furniture for your living room. After all, it will end up under a pile of sheets and covers, never to be shown off to guests or seen as an indicator of your  personal style. Even so, it  is probably the most important piece of furniture in your home! You’ll spend about 1/3 of your life on it and it will have a major impact on your overall health and wellbeing.

So, if you are experiencing one or more of these issues it’s probably time to start thinking seriously about shopping for a new mattress:

  • Tossing and turning that wakes you up
  • Not enough room to get comfortable
  • Trouble falling asleep due to discomfort
  • Getting too hot while sleeping, even with room temperature adjustments
  • Sharing the bed with a partner who doesn’t find it comfortable
  • Feeling every move your partner or pet makes while in bed

Another indicator is the age of your current mattress. If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time for an upgrade to make sure you are getting proper support and the comfort you need.

When Is the Best Time to Buy a Mattress?

The short answer is “as soon as you need one”! While many shoppers are tempted to postpone the purchase until a big holiday weekend sale, it’s important to remember that many retailers have special offers running all year long such as free delivery, financing, and gifts with purchase like sheets or pillows. Ultimately, your purchase decision should come down to finding the right mattress for your unique needs at a price that fits your budget.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when searching for a new mattress to meet your budget:

  • Start online. Brands like Americanstar have an informative website with product details and specifications to help get the shopping process started. Get an idea of what kind of mattress you (and your partner) want as well as brands that seem reputable while fitting your budget.
  • Know the retailer’s policies. Most brands and retailers today offer the option to buy online or to visit the store to try out models first. Many retailers offer free delivery and a trial that allows you to trade in your new mattress for another model in the event you make the wrong decision. Be sure you understand what these policies are before you buy. 
  • Put price into perspective. While you want to stay within your desired budget, it’s important to think about a new mattress as an investment into your sleep and overall wellbeing. Spending $1,000 on a mattress may feel like a lot, but remember you’ll  be sleeping on this every night for several years – which means you’re spending pennies per night to sleep better.

With these tips, you can successfully shop for a new mattress that meets your comfort, support, and budget needs any time of the year!


Happy Sleeping!
