If you’re currently in the market for a new mattress, shopping on Black Friday or Cyber Monday can help you to save hundreds of dollars. These consumer-focused shopping days are the perfect time to get ahead on your holiday shopping, and to take advantage of some seriously unbeatable deals.
While those in-store doorbuster deals might not happen this year, research from Finder reveals that Americans plan to spend $148.5 billion on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales in 2020. But with so many coupon codes and discount emails knocking at your door, how can you navigate mattress sales in a manner that not only results in the best deal, but the best mattress?
As Black Friday and Cyber Monday approach, here are our insider tips on expertly navigating mattress sales to score the best organic deal.
1. Make Note of the Return Policy & Warranty
When you purchase a significant item for your home like furniture or a new mattress, most companies will offer some sort of return policy and warranty guarantee. It’s important to note however, that these policies aren’t all created equal.
Some mattress companies offer features like a free sleep trial, while others might come with various stipulations that might result in customer dissatisfaction. If you’re purchasing your mattress from a retailer, they might have their own return policies for you to consider as well. In short: read the fine print!
At Naturepedic, our return policy is a 30 day money-back-guarantee on all baby and kids products, and a 90 day money-back guarantee on adult mattresses (besides the Halcyon line). To find out more about our return policy or our layer swap program, visit this page on our website.
2. Seek Out Trustworthy Customer Reviews
Some mattress retailers advertise thousands of online five-star reviews, which should immediately raise an alarm for customers. Knowing how to navigate mattress reviews and gather only the pertinent information as you weigh your decision is key.
By sidestepping the spam and uncovering true reviews from real customers, you can expertly navigate online reviews during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. In addition to looking for authenticity in the form of personal narratives, customers should make sure the tone of the review is neutral and practical. Moreover, the reviewer should be a credible, authoritative source.
3. Look For Mattress Certifications & Recommendations
High-quality mattresses that support safe and healthy sleep possess certifications from comprehensive certifying bodies, such as the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), UL/GREENGUARD, and MADE SAFE. Each of these certifiers represent the highest level of standards in terms of quality, health, and safety.
Before you purchase the cheapest mattress available during a holiday sale, start your shopping journey by reviewing mattress certifications. Not only do certifications help you know that what you’re getting meets a certain standard, but they also confirm that the materials used are natural, organic, and free from toxic chemicals. At Naturepedic, we are proud to provide the assurance of our top organic certifications (including the three mentioned above).
Make sure that the mattress brand you are looking at also comes highly recommended by people you trust! When it comes to our products, they come highly recommended by environmental organizations, pediatricians, and sleep experts.
