My husband is the size of a NFL football player and we are currently sleeping on a FULL sized bed. I want a king so badly.
Is black Friday a good time to buy? We want to pay cash… but I’m not sure if its a bad idea to splurge, get something over our budget and then make monthly payments through the mattress store.
I saw this on Macy’s black friday ad. I never would have thought to get a mattress there, but idk. Is it a good deal? We would still need to test it out, etc first.
I’m so clueless!

I’ll look for my pin on pinterest, I have a list somewhere that gives the best time to buy everything. If memory serves, mattresses are during presidents day weekend.

I was told to never by from Macys, Mattress factory or anywhere like that. You’ll find better prices and the same products at places like “Discount Mattress Superstore”- which sounds crazy because typically those places are junky, but for mattresses, they are great! We got a queen size bamboo two-sided pillow top and box springs and immediate home delivery and haul away of the old mattress for $450!

@tksjewelry: Oooo thanks!! You were fast finding that (it takes me a year to find anything I’ve pinned.) Looks like mattresses are in May (so long from now!!!) And it also says that wedding dresses are soon to be “out of season.” I never knew there was a time to buy wedding dresses lol.

@tksjewelry: This is AWESOME, thanks!
(Also OP, no advice on when to buy, but DH and I have a Sleep Number and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. He likes to sleep on a rock… I prefer a cloud. :P)

In case you want a source for mattress research, I find this site to be really informative:
ETA: I also strongly suggest that you stay away from the big box stores. They end up being more expensive, even with sales, for the same stuff. Maybe try Yelp and look for small stores with good reviews in your area.

@sheepandbear: just make sure you find out if it’s legal to sell refurbished mattresses in your state and if or how they mark it as such. I watched a whole Dateline show about the refurbished mattress industry, it completely freaked me out. I’m super conscious about that stuff now, especially with bed bugs being an issue in certain areas of the country.

@sheepandbear: If you have a Sam’s Club or Costco membership, they sell mattresses too – I got a great deal on mine!
