Here at Freebie Spot, we love to make our readers aware of the free and bargain items out there. However, some items, like mattresses, seem to be so expensive that you wonder if they’ll ever become affordable.
Luckily, there are a few things you can keep an eye out for when mattress shopping to ensure that you get the best deal possible.
We’ve put together this guide to the five most important features to look for when shopping for an affordable mattress so that you’ll never have to blow your budget to get a good night’s sleep again.
1. Look For Affordable Mattress Sales
Did you know that according to the ISPA (International Sleep Products Association… yes, I’m serious!) last year the average mattress sold for well over $300?
So, it almost goes without saying that the first thing you should look for on such an important and potentially expensive item is sales.
Make sure these sales are good deals though, and not a scam. Compare different deals from different stores and find the best deal for you.
2. Get to Know the Materials
Do your research to learn a bit about the different kinds of mattresses. Learn about the mattress you have now and why it is no longer working for you. You don’t want to purchase the same kind of mattress and end up right back where you started.
3. Test the Mattresses Yourself
As often as you can, you should personally lie down on the mattresses you are considering.
Every person has different needs for comfort during sleep, so you can’t know if a mattress is right for you until you try it.
Do your best to lie in the position you normally sleep in and maybe try a few others so that you can know if the mattress suits your personal needs.
4. Read Reviews
Mattress shopping on a budget doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice quality. There are plenty of great inexpensive mattresses out there.
Since you can’t go out and personally sleep on each each mattress, you’ll need to consult Google for help.
When you’re shopping for your mattress, bring your phone, as you can usually find reviews of their quality online. Mattresses are typically sleep-tested by reviewers who compare and contrast them with other mattresses.
Looking up and reading some of these mattress reviews will be helpful to you as you make your decision.
5. Always Check The Warranty
No matter how much research you do, you can never really know if a mattress is perfect for you until you sleep on it. This is why it is vitally important to check the warranty on all the mattresses you are considering.
There is always a possibility that the mattress you choose won’t work out for you. However, if the mattress has a good warranty, this shouldn’t be a problem.
Even on a budget, you will still be spending a decent amount of cash on a mattress, cash that you certainly don’t want to lose if the mattress doesn’t work for you. So always keep an eye on the warranty.
