You snooze, you lose!
Labor Day will be here before we know it, and you know what that means: opportunities to save money on pretty much anything. What you may not know is that Labor Day sales are a particularly good time to score a major deal on a mattress. Better yet, some of the best Labor Day mattress sales are starting well before the holiday, giving you plenty of time to decide which model is best for you.
According to Samantha Gordon, shopping editor for Consumer Reports, “It’s definitely one of the best times of year to shop for a new mattress. You’ll find savings on most popular brands.” So why mattresses? Gordon explains, “Similar to Memorial Day and July 4th, the bulk of Labor Day sales tend to focus on things you need around the home, with an emphasis on big-ticket items.”
“Sales in the home category, including mattresses, will be robust,” explains Trae Bodge, a smart shopping expert.” Retailers also know that shoppers are often looking for mattresses for college students living in off-campus apartments and will offer discounts to beat out the competition.”
With so many options out there, shopping for a new mattress can seem a bit overwhelming. To make your life a whole lot easier, we’ve rounded up the greatest Labor Day mattress sales that you don’t want to miss.
