4 Ways to Tell if You're Getting a Good Deal

If you're paying the full retail price on items, it's time to rethink your spending strategy. When it comes to scoring discounts and saving big on prices, Mattress Firm has a few simple tactics you can implement that will help you get the best deals, every day, no matter what you're purchasing.

4 Ways to Tell if You're Getting a Good Deal

1. Conduct a Simple Search.

You don't have to be a coupon clipper to avoid a ripoff! Shoppers can access thousands of coupons with the click of a mouse - no scissors required. Next time you're getting ready to make an online purchase, check out couponing and rebate sites like Honey, Ebates or RetailMeNot — they make it quick and easy to search for the brand you're purchasing and see if there are any discounts on the web that might work in your favor.

2. Take Advantage of Price Matching.

If you're not comparing retail prices when you shop, you are missing out on huge savings. Price matching is an easy way to stretch your dollar when you shop. With increasing competition in the retail space, most stores will price match anything that you can show them online. At Mattress Firm, we take price matching a step further with our 120-night low price guarantee. If you find one of our items for a lower price, we'll pay you the difference for up to 120 nights. We'll even beat any competitor's price by 10 percent.

3. Read Reviews.

Part of saving money before purchasing is researching the best product within your budget. Read the best and the worst reviews on a product. Sometimes fellow shoppers can have the best intel and help you learn about the product before you hand over the funds. If an item has a lot of reviews but doesn't earn a high rating, it's probably not worth the purchase.

4. Know the Return/Exchange Policy.

Before you hit the “confirm purchase" button, be sure you're familiar with the store's return policy. You can sometimes lose money on items that don't work out if you have to pay for shipping it back or if the store has a strict return policy. Mattress Firm offers a 120-night sleep trial. That means you can take your new mattress home and sleep on it for 120 nights. If you don't love it, simply call Mattress Firm customer service and you get your money back.

Before you make your next purchase, remember not to rush — just a few minutes of research and asking the right questions can help boost your savings in the long run.
