In July 2017, we acquired Sleepopolis.com. Casper provided financial support to allow us to acquire Sleepopolis. Derek Hales and Samantha Hales are no longer associated with Sleepopolis.com. We maintain an affiliate relationship with some of the products reviewed as well, which means we get a percentage of a sale if you click over from our site (at no cost to our readers).

Black Friday Mattress Sales Guide – 4 Keys to Success
Black Friday can be an extremely overwhelming day for shoppers. Especially with regards to the mattress industry. With so many deals out there it can often be difficult to decipher which of these is truly a “good deal”. Well not to worry, follow these Sleepopolis keys to success and you will know just what to look for.
1. Where to find the best deals
Online? In-store? How do you determine where to look when it comes to the biggest sales day of the year? With so many sales grabbing your attention at once, it can be a nightmare when deciding which way to look. This is exactly why you have to begin your research early and often. Both online and in-store have their pros and cons. Nonetheless, the goal of this day is to find a mattress that fits your needs as a sleeper while also working within your budget.
- Online – sleepers tend to forget about the online mattress industry, which is why we’re here. Avoiding all of the lines and crowds is only one of the major benefits of buying online. With very high quality mattresses made online, you can essentially get an identical bed to those in stores, at a fraction of the cost.
- In-stores – don’t get me wrong, there will definitely be some deals made in mattress stores. The big question is, was it actually worth it? Most of the time the large crowds lead to impulse decisions. With these impulse buys usually comes regret. However, the bigger issue to watch out for when buying in-store is simply getting sucked into deals that seem too good to be true. If it seems that way, it probably is. Many times the best sales are on mattresses that are extremely low quality. These are the types of mattresses that may only last you a couple of years before they begin to deteriorate. If you do elect to shop in-store I would recommend avoiding the ultra deep deals, unless you know with absolute certainty that the brand / model you are buying can be trusted to last.
2. Know Mattress Reputations
Research, research, and more research! No one else knows which type of mattress is best for you. By starting your research early you can determine which companies are reliable and what type of mattress will best suit your needs.
- Research Mattress Types – by boiling down which type of mattress is best for you, you eliminate a number of products. The three most common types are memory foam, latex foam, and innerspring. Spend a little time deciding which type fits your needs. After doing so, you will notice the ease of searching for sales on your specific type.
- Search for Reviews – mattress reviews can be a huge help. If you have no idea where to start your search, reviews can be the best place. The chance to see how a mattress performs before actually purchasing one is a major benefit. Sleepopolis strives to provide reviews that will help you determine which mattress is best for your needs. Our goal is to make sure you are sleeping better while getting a great deal along the way.
3. Lookout for Retailer’s Sales Gimmicks
This is the time of year where salesman are going to try their absolute hardest to push a sale. After all, it works in their favor regardless of what mattress you buy and if you’re happy or not. With all of the sales going on the salesman have a tendency to tell you what you want to hear, whether it’s true or not. So be weary of suspicious gimmicks used by these people!
The best way to avoid these tricks is to know your stuff. Don’t give the retailers the opportunity to fluff up a mattress that you know is below average. With Black Friday comes mass production. Which only feeds into the games the salesman want to play. The more mattresses there are, the more opportunities they have to sell. Once again, this is why research is important. A majority of the time, these retail stores will inflate the price of a mattress and follow it up with a huge sale price. In other words, you could actually be paying the original price of the mattress while thinking you landed a great deal.
4. Compare Warranties & Trial Periods
These two topics are game changers to say the least. By comparing warranties and trial periods between online and in-store, you will notice that the online industry wants to make the processes as easy as possible. Online companies offer an exceptional trial period, most running right around 100 days with free shipping to and from (if you don’t like the mattress) your home. If you buy in-store be wary of “comfort guarantees”. These usually mean you are only able to exchange the mattress for another of equal or lesser value, which may or may not mean you are actually able to get the mattress that’s right for you.
Warranties tend to start at 10 years and move upwards in length. Unlike traditional retail stores, you don’t have to save a receipt when buying online. Many online mattress companies will store your name in a database and have your warranty options readily available when the time arrives. Most importantly, make sure you are getting a warranty worth your while when purchasing. The minimum should be a 7 year warranty. A mattress, on average, has a lifespan of 8 years. Therefore, the warranty should coincide with the lifespan.
Lastly, be careful of lifetime warranties. A lifetime warranty is a bit of a farce. No mattress will last a lifetime. Most are designed to go 10-12 years. Any company pitching a lifetime warranty is most likely doing so as a marketing gimmick. Many times these lifetime warranties have dramatic prorate reductions after a few years or require your mattress sag / sink by 2″ or more before they will offer a replacement.
