New year mattress sales are kicking off with strong savings that are giving us a convincing argument for a new bed.  The first big mattress shopping weekend of the year is during Martin Luther King Day, and the savings are pretty good if you're in the market for a new bed. We found some of the best mattress sales on the internet so you won't just be dreaming of a better sleep, you'll be having a better sleep. You're welcome. 

Experts recommend that a mattress's lifespan is about seven years of use, so if your mattress is nearing its expiration date, it's definitely worth considering an upgrade. Since a mattress is something you'll be using every night for a long time, you'll want to take the proper steps that it is the right mattress for your needs. Sleep is super important for our physical and mental well-being, so getting a mattress that offers you enough support and comfort is essential. (Still, we think you'll sleep even better if it's bought on sale).  

Another reason you'll sleep well, even if you're not able to head into a store to try it out before you buy, most of these companies offer lengthy sleep trials and hassle-free return options should your mattress steal feel like a mattress bust. And if you're looking for guidance over our tried and true buys, you'll want to compare notes with our best mattress guide.
