Saving Money With Discount Mattresses

Jan 23, 2008
In order to save money, many families in need of a new bed will resort to purchasing discount mattresses at the cheapest price possible. However, the problem is that they could very well be getting an inferior product that will not aid in getting the proper sleep. Consumers need to understand what it is they are buying and whether or not it is a good product or not.

Basic discount mattresses consist of spring coils, layers of upholstery fillings and a cover. A spring system is the most common form of mattress. It is also the least comfortable but it is the cheapest. The common construction of this type of mattress is a combination of many coil springs, which are joined together by a continuous diameter spiral called a helical. Around the perimeter is a heavy gauge rod or wire border designed for strengthening.

A pocket spring mattress is more expensive than a coil spring one. However, finding discount mattresses in this style is more difficult. It is tough to balance cost with quality. In many cases you get what you pay for, so be careful in your selection. The more quality you give up the lesser quality you will end up with, and your sleep will suffer for it as well.

In some circumstances, if you are buying more than one mattress you may be able to secure a deal and end up paying less for a quality mattress but you will still feel like you purchased discount mattresses because of the savings. Another option for consumers to save money on new bed hardware is to consider purchasing a futon.

A futon is a great choice for a guest room or a spare room. They are affordable and quite versatile. You also have the option of purchasing discount mattresses for your futon as well. The life expectancy of a futon mattress is approximately seven years or so, which is roughly the same as a mattress for a traditional bed. Like a normal mattress it should be turned over every month or so. There are several different thicknesses available.

There are several areas where you can begin your search for discount mattresses. Many people now have access to the internet and this is a good place to start your search. While it is not necessary to make your purchase online, you can come up with plenty of valuable information on where to find what you are looking for. Another option is the local area in which you live.

Many retailers offers sales at various times of the year including the mattress specialty stores that are always trying to sell off old stock at very reasonable prices just to make room for new stock. This may be one of your best options to secure discount mattresses. Sometimes they even have mix and match sales, where you can pick up an excellent mattress set that does not quite match at a huge savings. This is great if you do not care about the set matching.
