January Is the Best Month to Buy Bedding and Linen. Here Are the Top 10 Deals
Start the new year fresh — with fresh bedding, that is. Experts say January is the best month to buy bedding and linens at the lowest prices. Historically, department stores have always held “white sales” on linens, sheets, and towels at the beginning of the year, in order to clear out inventory on their shelves and make way for new merchandise.
Here are some of the best deals and discounts on bedding you can get right now — including cozy comforters and flannel sheets so you can stay toasty without cranking the thermostat. (Psst — to keep things consistent, all prices given are for queen-sized bedding unless otherwise noted.)
400 Thread Count Organic Cotton Sateen Sheet Set: $94.90
Who says sheets have to be blah? These sumptuous sheets in organic cotton sateen come in a palette of go-with-anything neutrals for the perfect New Year’s bedroom pick-me-up. They’re 20% off right now, as part of Nordstrom’s giant home sale, where you can get up to 25% off bath and bedding, and home décor through Jan. 21. (Set is for one flat sheet, one fitted and two pillowcases.)
Sunbeam Electric Blanket: $66.10
Quilted fleece is warm and fuzzy on its own, especially in a soothing neutral greige color, but the heater in this blanket brings it home. At a discount off the regular $79.99 price, you might want to bring it home, too.
Martha Stewart Flannel Sheet Set: $48.99
Macy's truly massive Super Weekend Sale has enough white goods to fill your entire linen closet. Among this sea of sheets, this Martha Stewart flannel sheet set (one flat, one fitted, two pillowcases) in classic “Markham Plaid” stands out. At less than $50 (down from $140), it's probably the best bang for your toasty-toes buck. (Heads up: This sale runs through Jan. 7 only.)
Caleb Reversible Quilt: $78.90
Wake up your bedroom with this bohemian quilt at 20% off, which reverses from a blush-accented ikat-inspired design to a sophisticated gray-and-white medallion print. (The coordinating shams are here — and also on sale.)
Charter Club Throw Blanket: $19.99
No, you can’t hibernate, but you can do the next best thing, which is cuddling up on the sofa under this soft plush throw from Macy's. The fact that it’s discounted from its regular price of $50 doesn’t hurt, either. Get an extra 15% off with the code WKND through Jan. 7, making this a super-steal at $16.99.
Lucid Memory Foam Mattress Topper: $35.16
Before you drop 10 grand on a brand-new memory foam mattress, try a much cheaper foam topper on for size. This two-inch memory foam slab (discounted from $49.99) will support your aching back without hollowing out your bank account — and it’s got a three-year warranty, so you can sleep easy.
European White Down Comforter: $176.39
Hayneedle’s White Sale, which runs through Jan. 14, has a dizzying amount of key white goods marked way down. The one that caught our eye is this cold weather-ready down comforter at an impressive 44% off, with a high thread count exterior and a winter-worthy fill weight.
Turkish Luxury Hotel & Spa Bath Towels: $34.90 (set of four)
The nearly 2,100 Amazon reviewers who gave these bath towels five stars can’t be wrong: These oversized (27" x 54") towels will make you feel like you’re lounging at a posh spa, and at 50% off, they’re almost too good to pass up.
“Little Japanese Village” Towels: $8.10-$16.20
ABC Carpet & Home has bedding and bath white goods up to 50% off, and we seriously can’t get enough of these adorable pink washcloths and hand towels. You’ll be discovering new details in this woven-in print of cozy cottages all winter long.
Linum Home Textiles Unisex Spa Bathrobe: from $51.59
As long as you’re channeling spa bliss at home, you might as well go all in: This bathrobe earns a five-star ranking for its plush herringbone weave, generously-sized cut and general comfiness. Better yet: Some sizes and colors of this bathrobe are nearly 50% off right now.
