4th of July Mattress Sale Trends in 2017

Curious about what kind of sales this year’s Independence Day will bring? We don’t blame you. Mattress sales often follow similar patterns every holiday, and July 4th offers are no different. We scanned over retailer’s offers and these are the main trends we spotted.

Sale Dates

Many retailers this year are beginning their 4th of July sales well in advance of the holiday weekend. Some will start in late June, and others in early July. Most retailers will have the offers available by Friday, June 30 and will extend these promotions throughout the holiday weekend, until Monday or later. You have some time, but you should start your window shopping soon.

2017’s Top Trends


Rebates are always popular among department stores and larger brands. With these offers, you can get a check by mail for a portion of purchase costs or receive pillows and other promotional items by mail.

The downside is that you must keep all of your receipts and paperwork in order, fill out and mail forms, and wait 4-8 weeks to receive the rebate. Because they take a lot of work on the consumer’s part, many people often forget to send in rebates by deadline and miss out on the savings.


Dollar or percent discounts are usually people’s preferred way to save, and many retailers are marking down beds or offering coupons and instant savings this year. Do be aware that some of these “discounts” may be exaggerated, however. The percentages off or dollar savings are often taken off an inflated “retail” price which the bed would never actually be sold at.

Don’t be blinded by huge savings like 75% off. Instead, to see if you’re getting a good deal, look at the mattress quality and how the sale price compares to other beds of similar quality.


Another continuing trend for 4th of July sales this year is the inclusion of free boxsprings or foundations with select mid to higher-end mattress purchases. Some retailers are also including pillows or other bedding accessories.

Freebies like these can add value if they are things you were already planning on purchasing. Boxsprings are typically worth $100-300, foundations $200-$400, and pillows can be worth anywhere from $20-$150 each. Some require mail-in forms to receive.

Giveaways can make comparison shopping difficult. Try your best to find the actual price of the free items and

Online Deals:

This year, several more retailers are focusing on online specials. Many major department stores and national mattress showrooms are offering sales for online shoppers, and several online retailers are also participating in July 4th promotions.

This can be advantageous for shoppers, as you have better opportunity to research and compare beds when shopping online versus in showrooms. Plus, you can also skip the packed stores, high-pressure sales, and spend more time enjoying the holiday.

Getting the Best Bed This 4th of July

Choosing a mattress you’ll be happy with for years to come involves more than getting a good deal and a quick showroom test. Here’s the short version of our list of mattress shopping tips designed to help you choose the right bed:

  • Discuss sleep preferences with your partner, including firmness, sleep position, and any issues you have with your current bed.
  • Keep notes on the specifics of each offer.
  • Research online reviews and try and variety of beds and materials before committing.
  • Compare mattress specifications rather than just brand names and prices.
  • Make sure you have at least 30 days to return.
  • Always look into what a warranty does and does not cover and how long it is.

Although many retailers will be offering deals this Independence Day, keep in mind that not all of them are necessarily a good value. You want to make sure that the materials in the bed will hold up to regular use, that the bed fits your needs and that the mattress is backed with return and warranty guarantees.

Relax and take all the information in. Don’t rush into a purchase or you may regret it. No need to worry because you are shopping during some of the greatest sales of the year. July 4th mattress sales are a good time to be shopping for a new bed.

With a little research and smart shopping, you can get a great deal and a mattress you’ll be happy with during this year’s 4th of July mattress sale events.
