How to Find Killer Black Friday Mattress Deals

Not all Black Friday deals are going to be winners for you. There are plenty to choose from, so take your time, pay attention to a few particulars and you will have no trouble finding a bargain.  

Retailers use a number of techniques to get your business. Don’t fall for the marketing hype and keep a level head.

Here are a few signs that you are looking at a good mattress deal:

Know the reputation of the mattress.

This is the age of the internet, use it! Most companies allow customers to review their products on their websites, though some may be more honest about it than others.

Look for verified reviews. There are services that verify whether the reviewer actually purchased the product they are writing about. Weigh the verified results more heavily than those that aren’t.

Consult mattress review sites. There are many websites devoted to helping customers through the tangled mess of retail speak. See what the reviewers have to say about the mattresses you’re considering. Keep in mind, however, some of these reviewers may receive incentives from the companies they review.

Know what to look for. Sleep Like the Dead review site lists average customer satisfaction rates as follows:

  • 81% for memory foam mattresses
  • 80% for latex mattresses
  • 63% for innerspring mattresses

Be skeptical of retailers.

You’re well aware that some people will do and say anything to make a sale. Do not give these people the satisfaction or your hard-earned money.

Know the deets. The specifics of all sales should be clear and accessible. Make sure you read the fine print and aren’t being sold a line. Some websites may have incorrect information, so clarify with retailers prior to committing.

Avoid deceiving sales tactics. Some retailers will create the illusion of a great discount by inflating the original price of the product. This is referred to as “price anchoring,” as the retailer is attempting to anchor the bogus original price in your head to make the value appear better. Try to think about the real value of the product and not the numbers retailers throw at you.

Check warranties and return policies.

If a mattress is worth the money you are paying for it, the warranty and return policy for that mattress should reflect that.

Mattress warranties should be at least seven years. The average mattress lasts about seven years and the warranty should cover it for just as long or more. A short warranty period could indicate a poorly constructed mattress.

Be mindful of warranty types. Mattress warranties are usually divided two varieties. The “full coverage” or “full replacement” period of the warranty is the period of time that the manufacturer will pay for repairs or replacements in full. They may restrict what is covered, require a specific depth of sagging, or have other terms. The pro-rated period covers a percentage of replacement costs, declining with mattress age.

Don’t settle for less than a 30 day return policy. You’re making a big purchase and should have a bit of time to see if you like it. Many mattress retailers have trial periods that last for months. Check with your retailer to make sure you have a long enough return policy without a lot of strings attached.

The Deets: Comparisons of Mattresses Sorted by Price

Don’t have time to sort through dozens of ads? No worries, we did the hard work for you! Below, this year’s Black Friday mattress deals are sorted into categories by price. We have cheaper mattress deals (under $500), mid-price offers ($500 to $1500) and higher-end mattress deals (over $1500).

In the charts, we included specification details when available to make it easier to compare values. For innersprings, you’ll see information on coil type, coil count and top layers. For memory foam, you’ll see memory foam depth and density, and for latex, latex type and layer depth. Memory foam has been abbreviated to “MF” in the charts for brevity’s sake.

We chose these mattresses based on overall performance, price, consumer ratings, warranty and several other criteria. These offer the best value overall from the sales we reviewed this season.

Prices are based on queen size, and warranty and return policy terms are also included. Warranties are listed in years, and return/exchange periods in days. It’s always a good idea to check the finer details, as most warranties are pro-rated and some retailers have additional limitations on returns. Take a look at the lineup!

      Hello! 2016 Black Friday deals will likely start coming out in mid-November. If you’re looking for a new bed sooner, Memorial Day sales will be out in late May, and we have an article where we’ll be updating and comparing those as well.

    Obviously, whoever wrote this page forgot that we as people, make the world move in a perpetual motion for the economy. It is interesting how you say that business (retailers who offering a product that people need or want ) are out to get them. Not true. We are trying to make a good living like everyone else. Remember that nothing is for free. Unless you are one of them who will forget that we have a family or life to support too.

    You’re well aware that some people will do and say anything to make a sale. Do not give these people the satisfaction or your hard-earned money.

      We’re definitely not saying retailers are bad or out to get shoppers! Holiday sales are great for both sides – stores up their numbers and shoppers come away saving a few dollars. We’re merely aiming to provide a balanced guide and help people get the most for their own hard-earned dollars. The mattress industry can be tricky to navigate, and a lot of readers appreciate some help.

      Thanks for reading!
