Is July 4th a good time to buy a mattress?
TechRadar has extensive experience of reporting on mattress sales and we know from tracking them over the past few years that there are a few times each year that are better than any other for buying a new mattress. These are:
- Black Friday
- Cyber Monday
- Presidents’ Day
- Memorial Day
- 4th of July
- Labour Day
Mattress prices rise in the summer months, making the 4th of July mattress sales your last big opportunity to secure a cheaper price before the summer price hikes kick in. From analysis of past trends, these prices then tend to remain at a higher level until Labour Day in September, when they fall again at the end of November with the advent of Black Friday mattress deals. Most of these then become Cyber Monday mattress deals.
So if you need a new mattress and can’t wait until November, the 4th of July mattress sale events (found online and in store) are your best option this side of summer. Not all are worth buying though, so read our tips below on how to pick the best deal for you and avoid any duds.

How to pick the best 4th of July mattress sale
As with any other big shopping event, you’ll be bombarded with endless sale offers and deals. Brands will shout about how their 4th of July mattress sale is their best yet thanks to cheap prices and huge discounts, but how do you know if this is true or pure marketing hype?
Here are our top tips for telling the difference between a great deal and a dud:
1. Check the price history of the mattress
If you’re buying on Amazon, you can use price tracking software such as Camel Camel Camel. Fact-checking prices when shopping direct from manufacturers is tricker but not impossible.
One way to do this is to run a search for the mattress you’re interested in buying, plus the word ‘sale’ or ‘deal’. Only look at articles from this year as prices will naturally increase year on year. Also keep in mind that inflation is pushing up prices on lots of products, including mattresses, so higher prices are to be expected now regardless of the time of year. However if the 4th of July mattress sale price is considerably more than last month’s price, look elsewhere.
TechRadar covers monthly sales from leading mattress manufacturers, so you could use our following guides in your research too:
2. Only buy a mattress if it has a trial period
This is non-negotiable for us, as a trial period means you can sleep on the mattress at home for a set period of time before fully making up your mind. Lying on a mattress in store for 10 minutes simply doesn’t compete with a proper at-home mattress trial, and depending on the online manufacturer or retailer you buy from, you’ll get a 100 night trial.
Here’s something to watch out for though: if a brand offers free shipping and free returns, that trial is considered ‘risk free’. If the brand charges a returns fee (also called a processing fee), then it isn’t risk free as there’s a cost to you should you choose to return the mattress.
3. Only shop a 4th of July mattress sale if the returns policy is clear
Any decent mattress manufacturer or retailer will include a link to their returns policy at the bottom of the main (homepage) of their website. It should contain the following information:
- What the returns process involves
- When you can initiate it (some brands won’t accept returns until you’ve slept on your bed for 30 nights)
- Any associated costs to you
- A link to the warranty information so you can see what is and isn’t covered if you keep your new mattress
