Comparison of 2015 Labor Day Mattress Sales

While there are deals galore in the mattress world for holiday events, not all sales are created equal and some brands have better values than others, depending on what you are looking for.

But, many people simply don’t have the time to scan dozens of ads and research every bed, or can feel intimidated by the mattress industry. We are researching each mattress sale in-depth to bring you detailed specification and product details, equipping you with the information needed to make an informed comparison. We’ll have the sales up here shortly after retailers begin revealing them.

Deals are sorted into three categories for quick reference. We have cheaper mattress deals (under $500), mid-price offers ($500 to $1500) and higher-end mattress deals (over $1500). There are many deals to fit any budget.

Specifications are included on the chart below for quick reference. Depending on the mattress type, you’ll find info on support cores or springs, foam layers, and other details as available. Note that not all brands provide detailed information.

Also included below are the sale prices based on queen size, the retail store offering the deal, and return and warranty information. Returns are listed in the days the brand or retailer gives you to return or exchange the mattress, while warranty is given in total years (many are prorated, so it’s always wise to check for the details before buying).

Product deals and details were collected from advertisements, press releases, news sources, retailer websites and other sources. Though we’ve worked to verify details, they could be subject to change.

Information comes from manufacturer websites, retailer websites, and third party websites. Some manufacturers do not provide detailed specification information, but we’ve included it when we could locate details. “Memory foam” has been abbreviated to “MF”.

Regardless of what mattress type, brand, or price range you buy, it’s always smart to research a little and review the details before making a commitment. Sometimes during sales, you’ll find beds that may look like a good deal on the outside, but whose low quality and poor guarantees may leave you hurting after a short while.

The most important things to check include the specifications of the bed, prices of similar beds at other retailers, the retailer’s return policies and any exclusions or fees, and the bed’s warranty terms and exactly what the warranty covers and for how long. Consumer reviews are another helpful source of information when you’re trying to compare different beds and find the best fit.

Some other things to consider when shopping for Labor Day mattress sales this year are:

  1. Start your hunt early. Giving yourself time to locate the deals and evaluate them is very important. You don’t want to feel rushed. By familiarizing yourself with the terminology and retailers, you can navigate these sales more effectively. Begin looking at least a week or two before Labor Day.
  2. Determine your budget and stick to it. A nice mattress is an investment in your health, but you don’t want to spend more than your budget allows. Many retailers offer financing options. If you choose to finance your bed, be mindful of the payments and interest amounts.
  3. Be a thorough investigator. Some offers may have some hidden costs or troublesome fine print. Take a good look at the offers you’re considering and ask questions if you need to. Many retailers have online chat support or phone numbers for potential customers. Take advantage of all you can.
  4. Keep a level head and walk away if you feel pressured. Showroom negotiations can get tense. If you feel like you are losing control in the conversation, walk away and clear your head. You can often talk salespeople down in price in a retail store, but online retailers often are marked at the retailer’s lowest price (though things like free shipping or coupon codes may be available). There are plenty of good deals out there, just don’t wait too long to make a purchase. Remember, most deals last from the Friday or Saturday before Labor Day, through Labor Day Monday.

      We located details by searching the names on retailer websites or via store ads in most cases, but will keep this in mind for future holiday deal posts. Thanks for reading!

    Could you give us some details on the Serta Serenity bay firm vs. the Sealy Posturpedic Larkin Lane comfort firm both at Macys? Specifically, what caused you rate the Serta above the Sealy? Thanks!

    1. Sleep Junkie Post author

      Sorry for the late reply, missed your comment! The Serta has a fiber and gel memory foam top, 886 independent coils and a 20 year warranty. The Sealy model has more loft in fiber and foam/gel MF layers but with only 600 independent coils and a 10 year warranty. The Serta model also had higher reviews and was $100 cheaper during the sales.. Obviously this was late but hopefully the reasoning helps!
