The internet can be a gold mine for discount mattresses, and is a great way to quickly price shop across hundreds of options. While you’ll still want to try to get to a store to check for comfort, consider making the final purchase online.
To find a deal, start with the online clearance sections of the big department stores like Macy’s and Sears. Also checkout online/direct retailers like Mattress.com, and Overstock.com. Then read mattress ratings & reviews before buying.
There are a few price differences to keep in mind when buying online. On the plus side, this gives you a chance to use an online-only coupon, get cash back, or find a mail-in rebate. Plus you might not have to pay sales tax which can really add up.
On the downside, be sure to factor in shipping and handling costs. Some online retailers will jack up these fees to try to squeeze some extra profit out of you. Before buying, check a website’s guarantee and warranty information, and never buy from an online store without a phone number and physical address.
If you do end up buying in-store, be sure to read our tips on how to out-negotiate the salesperson so you can get the best price!
