Best bedding sales in January
If you’re pulling up the covers because you’re feeling colder than usual this month, it’s not just your imagination. Atmospheric scientist, Deanna Hence, explains that in many parts of the world, January sees some of the coldest temperatures of the year because of the Earth’s tilt.
Tilt or not, retailers have already prepared to help you stay warm by rolling out bedding sales. Wayfair, Kohl’s and Home Depot offer deep discounts on all things bedding, from cozy comforters to fluffy pillows to mattress toppers. Basically, if you’re thinking of outfitting your bedroom with a few new items, now is the time to do it.
What you need to know about January bedding sales
Why you should buy bedding in January
While bedding is often purchased during back-to-school, January sees its fair share of department-wide sales. Many bedding items are marked down to the lowest prices of the year, in part because retailers are unloading old inventory and clearing shelves for new spring merchandise.
January is the ideal time to maximize savings on bedding, especially if you received gift cards from Wayfair, Kohl’s or Home Depot. It’s worthwhile to apply them to larger bedding purchases, such as luxury down comforter sets, which may cost nearly $500-$1,000 at full price. To boot, gift cards are treated as a regular tender and not a coupon, which means you may be able to stack additional savings with rewards programs, coupons or sales.
If you’re celebrating a couple about to say “I do,” January is the perfect time to buy gifts from their registries. While you’re probably aware that Kohl’s offers registries, you may be surprised to learn that so do Wayfair and Home Depot. Some of the happy couple’s bedding items on their registries may be on sale this month. To save even more on your purchase, you can ship it directly to them, often for free.
