But mattresses don’t last forever — you do, after all, spend eight hours or so every night resting in your bed. The Sleep Foundation says your mattress should last at least seven years and usually should be replaced after 10 years

Although a mattress is a big spend that costs anywhere from a few hundred dollars for a basic model to $10,000 or more for one with bells and whistles, it’s a worthwhile investment. And there are certain times of the year when you can get the best deal if you plan your purchase right.

Whether you buy online or in a physical store, aim for a three-day holiday weekend like President’s Day, Memorial Day or Labor Day, U.S. News & World Report recommended. July 4th is also a popular holiday for mattress sales. “You’ll find discounts being offered by the big brands, like Serta and Sealy, but also from the smaller ‘bed in a box’ companies, like Nest, Nectar and Purple.”
