Why Is Presidents' Day a Good Time to Buy a Mattress?

Presidents' Day is always a good time to buy a new mattress because you'll find impressive deals at all the top retailers. (No, really, it's not every day that Avocado takes up to $1,360 off their best-selling beds.) Not to mention, Presidents' Day falls on the third Monday in February (Feb. 19 this year), so it's still early enough into the New Year to upgrade your sleep for the year ahead, or get started on your home refresh for spring.

How to Find the Perfect Mattress

Our formula for finding the perfect mattress for every kind of sleeper is outlined in this story. But to put it in a nutshell, it really comes down to how you sleep (literally). For instance, if you're a side sleeper, you'll be happiest with a supportive mattress that contours to your body. Meanwhile, back sleepers will sleep the best on a medium-firm to firm mattress, so they don’t sink in too deeply. However, if you're a couple, a hybrid bed with minimal motion transfer is the way to go since it'll cradle you both and keep you from feeling your partner's every toss and turn throughout the night.

Ready to pick out your new bed at a price you can't refuse? Scroll on to find the best Presidents' Day mattress deals you definitely don't want to snooze through this year.

Best Mattress Deal Overall

1. Saatva Classic Mattress


Saatva mattresses are unlike any other on the market, and it's all thanks to their genius layered design, which provides the perfect blend of softness, firmness and cooling technology for a more comfortable sleep. How do we know this for sure? Well, we reviewed the brand's most popular model—the Classic bed—and let's just say it helped us get to sleep faster and wake up *so* refreshed each day. And if that isn't reason enough to secure one for yourself, perhaps the fact that the brand is slashing $375 off just for PureWow readers will convince you. Not to mention, the science behind it is pretty mindblowing: It's designed with patented Lumbar Zone technology, which contours to your body while promoting healthy spine alignment, according to the brand. Plus, it's coated in a botanical, antimicrobial treatment to prevent mold and bacterial growth (meaning you can plan on it sticking around for a long time).

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: PureWow readers take $375 off their order of $1,000 or more from Feb. 13 to Feb. 23.

Editors' Pick

2. Puffy Lux Mattress


Boasting more than 12,000 glowing reviews, this "lux" hybrid bed certainly lives up to its name. It features six luxurious layers of premium memory foam with a base of contouring coils that should adapt to your form. However, we're most impressed with the fact that the brand is endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). This means it has been reviewed by a board of doctors to ensure it's up to the highest standards in terms of support for your spine and back. And while that's one stamp of approval you can definitely trust, you can also take this reviewer's word that it's worth every cent: "It is literally like sleeping on a cloud! It is by far the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on."

Best Mattress Deal for Under $500

3. Nectar Memory Foam Mattress


If there's anything we've learned about mattresses, it's that the more layers it has, the more comfortable it is. So, what does sleeping on five plush layers feel like, you ask? Imagine “the ideal ratio of softness, firmness and support,” says Nectar. If you're a hot sleeper, you'll probably be won over by this bed's "gel memory foam [that] ensures body heat gets distributed evenly throughout, which is a total game changer," one PureWow editor shares in her full review. Share a bed with your partner? You should know that this affordable masterpiece touts minimal motion transfer (shout-out to that foam stability base!), so you won't wake each other up in the middle of the night when someone goes to get a glass of water. It's a win-win!

  • Sale Details: Enjoy up to 40 percent off your first Nectar mattress purchase through Feb. 22.

4. Avocado Green Mattress


PureWow readers are huge fans of this Avocado Green mattress, which is up to 20 percent off for Presidents' Day (depending on the size and model). We must admit we're a bit obsessed with it, too, since it's comprised of the brand's certified organic latex, certified organic wool and certified organic cotton, which together make it durable, cooling, hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, breathable and super soft. Why else do you think we gave it a 95 out of 100 in a PureWow100 review? We found the Avocado Green mattress with a pillow top to be an ideal bed for side-sleepers who experience added pressure on their joints, so If that sounds like you, you know what to do.

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: Get up to $1,360 off mattresses, up to 10 percent off pillows and toppers and up to 10 percent off bedding and protectors from now through Mar. 4.

Best Mattress for Back Pain

5. Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress


This no ordinary bed-in-a-box. A fellow PureWow editor tried *five* different mattresses, and this baby came out on top when it came to relieving her back pain. You can read the full Casper Wave review here, but this quote pretty much sums it up: "I noticed a difference from the very first night when I didn’t wake up at 5 a.m. with the sudden urge to lay on my hardwood floor to get some [relief]." That can be credited to the bed's Align Foam and Gel Support Pods, which promote healthy spinal alignment and prevent sinking, per the brand. In other words, it's totally worth the splurge, although you can't put a price on a good night's sleep.

  • Sale Details: Save up to 30 percent off sitewide through Feb. 28.

Best Bed-in-a-Box Deal

6. Tuft & Needle Mint Hybrid Mattress

Tuft & Needle

This Tuft & Needle hybrid bed turned Dara Katz, PureWow's executive editor, and her partner into bed-in-a-box believers, which is no small feat. And how did it do it? Feel free to read her full review that goes into how the bed is made with a combination of T&N Adaptive foam and high-quality pocketed springs, or just add it to cart now since she says the support and pressure are reason enough to buy it. Katz also says the motion control will not disappoint. "I move around A LOT in my sleep. Like...a LOT. And my husband said he doesn't feel me moving around at night anymore, and I definitely don't feel him. This is a HUGE perk," she explains. Sounds like a must for up to 20 percent off!

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: Secure up to 20 percent off all Tuft & Needles mattresses and select accessories through Feb. 26.

Best Mattress for Hot Sleepers

7. Serta Perfect Sleeper Hybrid Mattress


If you tend to run hot at night, look no further than this Serta hybrid mattress, topped with a cool-to-the-touch cover that prevents you from having those terrible night sweats. No, we're not kidding. Rachel Gulmi, PureWow's operations director of branded content, said it herself in her review. She also mentioned that the bed responded to her body well as a combination sleeper who shifts positions throughout the night. So rest assured, this mattress works for every kind of sleeper (side, back, stomach and all) and still has good pressure relief that contours to your body to help minimize aches and pains. What more can you ask for?

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: Take up to $1,100 off select mattresses and adjustable bases from now through Feb. 26.

Most Splurge-Worthy Mattress

8. Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Breeze ProBreeze Mattress


There's a reason why Tempur-Pedic mattresses are so expensive. As Katz explains, "Mattresses are investment pieces, especially if you want them to last for years down the road." (Psst: This one comes with a ten-year warranty to cover certain damages.) In her PureWow100 review on this baby, Katz says, "Considering the technology used in the construction of [this] mattress for support and cooling, the [steep] price tag is justified, in my opinion." From keeping you cool (even in mid-summer) to providing a comfy cocooning feeling, this bed apparently does it all. We aren't too surprised, however, since Tempur-Pedic offers personalized pressure relief with all its memory foam mattresses, meaning they'll conform to your body and keep you comfortable all night long. And with an adjustable power base (sold separately), you can take it to the next level (literally) with tons of elevated head and foot positions.

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: Save up to $500 on select adjustable mattress sets and get free accessories (worth $300) with qualifying mattress purchases from Feb 2. through Feb. 27.

Most Seamless Delivery

9. Stearns & Foster The Studio Mattress

Stearns & Foster

Ordering a bed from Stearns & Foster is quite literally a bespoke experience. Every one of the brand's mattresses is meticulously handcrafted and seamlessly delivered with care. We'll break down the process: Within 48 hours of placing your order of, let's say, this supportive and stylish Studio mattress, the brand sends it to one of its US-based manufacturing facilities to be carefully hand-built by master craftsmen using only the best of the best materials (such as soft and moisture-wicking TENCEL fibers). Then, two to three weeks later, they'll ship it to a local delivery partner who will reach out to you to set up a delivery time. Then all you have to do is sit back and relax because the local team will set up your new mattress wherever you'd like and even remove your old bed by request. So if you dread putting work into replacing your mattress, let Stearns & Foster take care of everything.

  • Sale Details: Secure up to $600 off select mattresses from Feb. 6 through Feb. 27.

Best Mattress Deal for Side Sleepers

10. Nolah Evolution Mattress


Are you a side sleeper? If you answered yes, there's no need to look at any other beds on this list. For two years in a row, the Sleep Foundation named this hybrid the "Best Mattress for Side Sleepers" thanks to its mix of plush cushioning and responsive coils, which together offer targeted support and comfort where it counts. Its foam layers are designed to dissipate heat 20 percent faster than other memory foam beds, per the brand, and offer total support from head to toe, but especially at the shoulders and lumbar region. And unlike some of the other beds on this list, this baby also has convenient carrying handles and a non-skid backside, so it shouldn't slide every which way when you're changing the sheets (and in case it does, well, you've got the handles to put it back into place in a snap).

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: PureWow readers can take 35 percent off sitewide, plus an additional $100 off mattresses with coupon code PUREWOW100 from Feb. 9 through Feb. 29.

Best Mattress for Sleeping Longer

11. Awara Natural Hybrid Mattress


If you have a hard time getting (and keeping) your eyes shut at night, or can't help but to wake up way before your alarm, you should consider this mattress that buyers say helps them sleep longer—and better. We have a strong feeling that has something to do with the bed's lush layers that wick away moisture (so you don't wake up from night sweats), support pressure points and joints (so you feel comfy through the night) and reduce motion transfer (so you don't feel your partner's every toss and turn). With that being said, how could you not stay asleep for 20 more minutes on average, according to one reviewer? Of course, there's plenty more to love about it, but this up to 50 percent discount won't last forever, so as one buyer says, "If you’re having any second thoughts, don’t!" You may end up wishing you bought it sooner.

Fast Facts

  • Sale Details: Get up to 50 percent off mattresses through Feb. 22.

Best Luxury Hybrid Mattress Deal

12. DreamCloud Premier Hybrid Mattress


There are several editor- and reader-approved hybrid mattresses on this list, but this just might be the most luxurious one you can snag for a steal this Presidents' Day. First off, this bed has a *cashmere* comfort cover, and if you're just as obsessed with the material as we are, then you know how soft, cozy and durable it could be, so this bed should be no exception. Now, cashmere is known for its warmth, but that doesn't mean it's a no-no for hot sleepers; the bed is also reported to be moisture-wicking, cooling and breathable, so everyone is guaranteed a good night's sleep. "Truly feels like you're on a cloud with this bed," one reviewer adds. "We love the firm nature of the bed but [also] how it...allows you to feel like you've sunk into it." Sounds like a dream come true to us.

  • Sale Details: Save 50 percent on mattresses through Feb. 22

Best Mattress Deal With Free Extras

13. Cocoon by Sealy Chill Mattress

Cocoon by Sealy

In case you don't already know, Sealy put cooling mattresses (which help regulate your temperature as you fall asleep) on the map. But the brand's other features, like fabric-encased coils, pillow-top comfort and added edge support, are what really sets it apart. Specifically, this Chill bed is the talk of the town because it has extra spring and foam construction to offer up some bounce. Meanwhile, a Perfect Fit Memory Foam layer adapts to the body for what could turn into the best sleep of your life. But of course, you'll never know unless you try it.

  • Sale Details: Enjoy 35 percent off all mattresses and get free pillows, sheets and a mattress protector (worth up to $199) while you're at it from now through Feb. 27.

Wayfair's Presidents' Day Sale has officially begun, and you can bet there are hundreds of mattress deals waiting to be scored right this minute. Like this 12-inch gel memory foam mattress, currently on sale for as low as $215, for starters.
