Memory Foam Picks:
Memory foam mattresses have the highest rates of customer satisfaction and are available in most mattress stores and online. Here are our top 3 picks from this year’s Labor Day memory foam deals. Selection is based on specifications and quality versus price, reviews, and guarantees.

Like stores, deals tend to be concentrated on the week before the sales, though Overstock and others may run ads several weeks in advance. Some like Serta and Tempurpedic tend to mirror offers of their retail partners, but others like Amerisleep, US Mattress or 1800Mattress may have online exclusive deals and big discounts.Online retailers usually participate in Labor Day mattress sales, and may even offer better deals than retail stores due to stiffer competition and lower overhead expenses. You won’t have to haggle or negotiate with most online dealers as you often do in showrooms, also.

Labor Day Mattress Guide
Mattresses are larger purchases and should last for years, so most people don’t shop for them too often. One top of sifting through new brands and technologies, it can be overwhelming trying to find the right deal for you amidst the vast amount of sales near a holiday.
This guide should ease your burden by simplifying things a little. Here is a short list of some things that you should be mindful of while bargain hunting.
Discounts vs Real Prices
Some retailers may hike “original/retail/MSRP” prices far beyond what a mattress would normally sell for in order to exaggerate the discount during a sale. In the retail world, this is known as “price anchoring,” because retailers try to anchor a perception of value with a high price, making discounts seem larger. Always compare the mattress specifications with others on the market and look at the value versus the markdown percentage.
It’s always wise to check fine print for deals and ads, because some terms may not be clear. For example, some discounts may only be in the form of gift cards or store credit, or you may have to mail in for rebate offers within a specific period of time. Other offers may require the purchase of accessories, or may be limited to specific areas/times.
Lack of Information
If the retailer can’t tell you about what’s in the mattress (basics like coil count, layer thickness, foam density, etc), than it is hard to comparison shop and know if you found a good value. Be wary of retailers or brands that don’t want to provide you basic specification details. Ask questions and be persistent on the points that matter most to you.
Many stores will offer special low-priced beds just during sales to grab attention. Sometimes these can be good deals, other times they may be very low quality and not designed for regular use or to stand up for more than a couple years (versus 8 to 10 for average beds).
Warranties & Returns
The other thing you always want to watch for are warranty and return policy terms, as some brands may change their policies during sales, and these guarantees also play a role in the overall value of a mattress.
We hope this guide to Labor Day mattress sales makes your holiday shopping a little easier! If you want more information on beds, you might also enjoy some of WTBB’s other guides like our best mattress picks of summer 2016 or how to choose a mattress based on your sleep habits.
