It pays to look around for the best mattress offers. The market for beds and mattresses is highly competitive - both in design and manufacture and in retail. Mattress specialists are constantly looking for new ways to attract customers to their showrooms or websites, and a key way of doing this is by offering discounts or special deals on the stock they have available. Mattress discounts Discounts are used widely throughout all consumer retailers. The general definition of a discount is a reduction in price from the usual sale price. Discounts are offered for a number of reasons: ? To attract new customers ? To clear old stock ? To reduce levels of goods that are over-stocked ? To encourage customers to buy more than one item ? To meet sales targets set by suppliers or manufacturers A mattress retailer will change the discounts available, depending on the time of year, the mix of stock they have available and the sales targets they have to meet. As a consumer, you can benefit by researching the discounts that are currently available and choosing the deal that's best for you. Mattress offers Offers are different from discount. A discount is a straightforward price reduction, whereas an offer usually combines a number of things in order to attract customers to the retailer. For example, a small discount and free delivery will make up an offer, as will a price reduction for buying a mattress and bed together. Equally, a 0% or buy-now-pay-later agreement also constitutes and offer, and all are used regularly by mattress and bed retailers. Finding the best offers Once you have decided on the mattress you want, take the time to look in showrooms and online for the retailer that makes the best offer or has the lowest price for the mattress you've chosen. Online retailers like Mattress Next Day are in a great position to give you great prices and offers, because their costs are generally lower than those of high street retailers who need to pay for showroom space and additional staff.
