03 Feb When is Best to Invest in a New Mattress?
Timing is important in many different areas of life, including some of the major purchases we make at various points. One great example here is buying a mattress – when is the right time to go about this?
At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re happy to offer a huge range of mattress options, including sizes ranging from twin and full up to king mattresses and more. The answer to the above question: It depends! There are several timing-related elements that may impact your mattress purchase, whether you’re buying based on a specific need, waiting for a specific time of year or taking any other approach. Here are some of the common times where some people look to buy mattresses, plus some general advice for this entire area.
In many cases, mattress stores offer various deals and discounts for certain holidays – particularly Memorial Day, Presidents Day, Labor Day and even Black Friday. If you’re looking to purchase a mattress around this time of year, be sure to check out the special deals that might be available!
For instance, if you know you want a new mattress, but believe that your current option can make it another month or two before you actually make the purchase, maybe hold off until one of these major holidays to see what special prices you can get.
Seasonal change is another great time for people to look into buying a mattress. For instance, if you’re looking to buy an air mattress, these types of mattresses tend to be much better in the summer – so if that’s your desired option, consider buying around this time of year. The same principle applies for other types of mattresses too – consider the season when you shop around, and what type of mattress will be best suited to that particular climate.
Different mattress types will have differing seasonal requirements, so be sure to do your research in this area.
Late Winter or Early Spring
One particular season that deserves its own mention here is the late winter/early spring period. This is often a great time to buy a mattress as it’s after the holiday sales have already ended, but still before summer heat has truly set in (which can have an impact on air mattresses).
Furthermore, this is an important time of the year for a big reason: New mattresses for that year are arriving soon, and stores want to get rid of the older ones. This often leads to mattress sales being heavily discounted at this time – so if you can wait until late winter or early spring, there are some great deals out there!
Once again, just like in the above areas, be sure to do your research and check out different stores to find the best deals.
However, in many cases, your mattress needs will not simply wait until the ideal timeline arrives for a purchase. There are many situations where needs will dictate your purchase, including:
- Age of old mattress: If your current mattress is more than 8 years old, it may be time to get a replacement – as this is generally considered the end of the life-cycle for most mattresses. Some may last up to 10 years or a bit further, especially if they’re regularly maintained, but 8 years is the general rule of thumb.
- Sleep disturbances: If you’re consistently waking up with pain or discomfort, this can be a sign that your mattress may need to be replaced. This could be due to the age of the mattress, or simply because it doesn’t fit your body’s needs anymore – either way, it may be time to look for a replacement.
- Major wear-and-tear: In other cases, you may notice major wear-and-tear such as deep indentations or sagging on your mattress. If this is the case, it’s quite likely that you need to replace your mattress sooner rather than later.
- Pest issues: Finally, if you have any kind of pest infestation on your mattress, this is a huge sign that it’s time to replace it. Pests can cause major health issues, so don’t hesitate to purchase a replacement in these circumstances.
No matter what the situation may be, it’s important to remember that timing is still important when buying a mattress. Purchasing at the right time of year can help you get the best deals, and ensure that your new mattress will be able to last for as long as possible. Do your research, know when it’s time to replace your old one and don’t hesitate to shop around – these three tips can really help you make the most out of the experience.
