Back to College or Back to School Mattress Sales have begun…
The mattress stores know your getting ready to go back to school or off college for your first year, if you are and you’re shopping for back to school mattress sales here’s why you’ll want to check out STL Beds. While other stores yell “sale sale sale” in loud expensive TV commercials giving away monopoly money for savings, STL beds offers you the very best quality mattresses, for the lowest prices, and these beds sleep great. But here is a question for you. Would you know a great back to school mattress sale if you saw one? If you are like most back to school mattress shoppers you don’t do this every day and chances are you wouldn’t. The mattress industry is notorious for it’s trickery like “ The Mattress Industry Name Game ” and deceptive advertising touting huge savings and a long mattress warranty.
A Big Mistake Mattress Shoppers Make
If I could put my finger on one of the biggest mistake shoppers make when buying a mattress I would have to say they buy based on the amount of money that they are able to save vs. how much bed they are getting for the money they are about to spend. That’s right we see dollars signs and the more of those we’re told we’re saving the better deal we seem to think were getting. When in reality we need to be comparing apples to apples. Mattresses that have similar, like, or exact construction should be compared by their specifications or makeup, then and only then do you compare prices.
Example: Comparing 2 Mattresses for Back To School Sales
Comparing 2 similar beds:
Store A Store B
Full Size Full Size
416 coils 416 coils
13 gauge 13 gauge
3 layers 1″ foam 3 layers 1″ foam
Foam Densities Same Foam Densities Same
(EDLP) $399.00 Regular Price $799.00
(EDLP) $399.00 Back To School Sale $429.00
While these are obviously not from the same company they are definitely comparable mattresses. Store A is selling their Simmons (EDLP) Every Day Low Price for $399.00 While the other is claiming theirs is regularly $799.00 and during the big sale. The reality is you are over paying by $30.00 at store B who is suposed saving you $370.00.
These marketing practices are common. Such practices put all of the emphasis on the monies saved vs. quality or product received for those monies. Why put the money in the pockets of retailers and manufactures when with a little savvy shopping you can come out on top, save money, get a great product and a great deal.
