For a lot of people mattress sale is something they will not miss because it presents the opportunity to save money on the item. Mattress sale often occurs during the end of summer because the retailers want to make room for their cold-weather products. If you are a bargain hunter you should not miss end of summer sales because there are many interesting items at relatively cheap prices.
However, if you are going to patronize summer sales make sure that you do not buy some used items because even if they seem to be great deals, you are not actually sure of their reliability. If you are in the market for a cheap mattress, wait for mattress retailers to offer a clearance sale. You have the assurance that the mattress is brand new but less expensive.
It is an unpleasant thought but used mattresses can be a haven of bed bugs, bodily fluids, bacteria and whatever else the previous owner has left on the mattress. Don’t go searching for cheap used mattresses in garage sales and Craigslist because it is typical for a mattress to last only for about 10 years. There is no way of knowing how long the mattress was used by the previous owners when you buy it from a stranger.
Bicycles and motorcycle helmets are designed to protect the cranium during a crash. Just because the helmet looks like brand new, it does not mean that it is free from defects. A hairline crack won’t seem too serious but it can make the difference between the helmet crashing into pieces or staying intact to provide the necessary protection. It is not worth taking a risk on a used helmet.
Used car tires are sold with regularity but like helmets they can impact on your safety when used on your car. The problem with used tires is you do not have an idea on how they were used by the previous owner. The tire could have been driven overloaded, underinflated or at excessively high speeds which could result into internal damages that are not visible from the outside. In simple terms, used tires are unsafe.
