Celebrated since the 19th century, Labor Day – traditionally observed on the first Monday in September – honors this country’s labor movements and the achievements of working Americans. Labor Day is also widely considered the last major holiday of the summer season. Since Labor Day is a federal holiday, most employers award a three-day weekend.

Online and brick-and-mortar mattress companies typically offer sales that take place during Labor Day weekend. These sales can save you hundreds of dollars on a high-quality bed. So if you’ve been putting off buying a new mattress because it’s out of your price range, Labor Day weekend is an excellent time to make that purchase.

Many shoppers enjoy the experience of picking out a mattress in a brick-and-mortar store. However, we’ve found customers typically save more money when they purchase their mattress online instead. Buying online is also more convenient for most people, and most web-based mattress brands offer sleep trials to let you test out the new bed before deciding whether to keep, return, or exchange it.

We’ll share some tips for saving money on a new bed this September and also compare the pros and cons of online and brick-and-mortar mattress brands.

Where to Shop for a Mattress on Labor Day

Visiting a brick-and-mortar mattress store offers certain advantages for shoppers. Most stores feature floor models that customers can lie down on and test out, which can help them narrow down the best options. Sales staff can also provide buying tips, answer questions, and assist you with your mattress purchase. These stores typically advertise Labor Day mattress sales through newspaper ads, TV and radio spots, social media accounts, and email newsletters.

However, visiting a mattress store this Labor Day may be problematic for some. While many establishments have put COVID-19 safeguards in place to keep customers safe, shoppers may be wary of the crowds that mattress sales inevitably attract. Establishments may also limit their hours of operation, meaning longer lines and wait times for customers. In some communities, mattress stores may still be completely closed.

In addition to COVID-related concerns, there are other reasons to purchase your mattress online rather than in a store. In the next section, we’ll take a closer look at these benefits for mattress shoppers.

Benefits of Online Mattress Shopping

Buying a mattress online this Labor Day weekend will allow you to steer clear of crowded stores. In addition, there are a few other advantages that come with purchasing your bed from an online company instead of a brick-and-mortar establishment.

Affordable Models

Operating a mattress store and employing knowledgeable sales staff leads to greater overhead costs for brick-and-mortar owners, which in turn can drive up the sticker prices for new beds. Visiting a store also requires a time commitment and, in some cases, a lengthy drive to the nearest establishment. Comparatively, online brands face lower overhead costs and often charge less for mattresses as a result.

Browse and Shop at Your Own Pace

A common complaint about brick-and-mortar mattress stores is that the onsite sales staff – while helpful and informative – can also be somewhat pushy. These employees often work on commission, so they are invested in facilitating customer sales. You won’t need to deal with sales staff when you buy a mattress online. Many web-based brands offer live chat windows with customer service personnel available if you have questions about certain models. Otherwise, you’ll be free to browse the site without pressure.

Larger Selection

Even if you visit a large mattress store, your selection will be somewhat limited to the models that the store has in stock. Shopping online allows you to browse dozens of models from different brands, many of which also offer pillows, bases and foundations, sheets, and other essential sleep accessories.

Convenient Shopping Experience

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many brick-and-mortar mattress stores to limit their hours of operation, if not completely close, but it’s business as usual for most online mattress brands. You may not be able to access live web chat with customer service staff 24 hours a day, but you can browse models and place orders at any time of the day or night. Buying online also means you won’t need to visit a store in-person. For some residents of rural areas, going to the nearest brick-and-mortar mattress store can mean hours in the car.

Inexpensive and Hassle-free Shipping

With rare exceptions, online “mattress-in-a-box” brands provide free ground shipping to customers in the contiguous U.S. Some companies also extend free delivery to residents of Alaska, Hawaii, and/or Canada. For ground delivery, the mattress will be compressed and shipped in a box directly to your doorstep. You won’t need to sign for the package, nor will you need to be at home when it arrives.

For added convenience, some brands offer White Glove delivery that includes a scheduled date and time, in-home assembly, and old mattress removal upon request. This service typically adds $100 or more to the bed’s sticker price, but it can be quite helpful if you have an old mattress you’d like to get rid of, or if you’d rather not set up the new bed yourself. Keep in mind that White Glove delivery may be limited for some brands due to COVID-related reasons.

Sleep Trial and Free Returns

Many mattress shoppers hesitate to buy from online brands because they’re unable to test out the bed in person before placing their order. To address this concern, online mattress companies offer sleep trials that typically last at least 90 nights – and extend up to a year or longer in some cases. These trials allow you to sleep on the mattress for months at a time before deciding whether to keep the bed, return it, or exchange it for another model. In addition to sleep trials, most online brands offer free returns. Some will even send couriers to your house to retrieve the mattress and transport it for charitable donation or recycling.

How to Find the Best Labor Day Mattress Deal Online

Online Labor Day mattress sales are quite common – you just need to know how to find them. You can learn about this year’s sales using the following sources.

Browse Online Mattress Company Websites

The best way to learn about online mattress sales for Labor Day is by going straight to the source. Most online mattress brands will include banners and pop-ups advertising their Labor Day sales and promotions, and you may find additional details on the official product pages for individual mattress models. If you have questions, reach out to customer support staff using live web chat when available.

Avoid Retailers

Some mattress models are only available from the original manufacturer while others may also be purchased through third-party retailers and online marketplaces such as Amazon, Walmart, or Costco. In any case, we recommend buying the mattress directly from the brand, rather than through a retailer. These brands usually offer extra perks for customers, such as free shipping, longer sleep trials, and exclusive discounts.

Sign up for Email Newsletters

Online brands often share details about discounts and promotions in email newsletters sent to their subscribers. In some cases, subscribers will hear about these deals before the rest of the public. Newsletters can clog up your inbox a bit, but if you’re hunting for big mattress savings, then you may want to subscribe to at least a few different brands.

Visit Mattress Review Websites

Third-party mattress review sites can be a treasure trove of checkout codes and discounts. These sites may also be quite helpful if you’re unsure which mattress model is best for you. Check out these websites in the weeks leading up to Labor Day and other major shopping holidays to learn about the latest deals.

Review Customer Policies

Before placing a mattress order, it’s important to read the fine print regarding shipping options, sleep trials, and warranties. This can help you avoid added expenses down the road, such as shipping and return fees, or mattress replacement costs that stem from prorated warranty coverage.
