Is Memorial Day a Good Time to Buy a Mattress?

If the mega-discounts listed above didn't give it away, then yes, Memorial Day is a great time to buy a new mattress. As PureWow's sales & deals editor who covers mattress sales year-round, I can assure you that this is one of the absolute best times to score deals on beds you won't see again until the end of the year, including budget-friendly Nectar mattresses for 33 percent off and luxurious Avocado beds for up to 30 percent off.

What Are the Best Mattresses on Sale for Memorial Day?

We've tested endless beds, from the Avocado Green mattress (now starting at $1,259) to the Nectar memory foam bed (now starting at $359) and Saatva Classic mattress (now starting at $770). And we can confidently say these are easily three of the best mattresses on sale for Memorial Day.

For starters, the Avocado bed made our hip pain disappear, thanks to its medium-firm cushioning with a just-right level of support for aching sides (just read our full review). Meanwhile, the Nectar mattress helped us sleep soundly through the night, and scored a whopping 93 out of 100 in a PureWow 100 review. Then there's the Saatva classic bed that got a 95 out of 100 because it helped us get our REM sleep on, which you can find out more about in this story.

However, we would go to bat for all the beds below, all of which are currently on major sale.

1. Saatva Classic Mattress

Saatva mattresses are unlike any other on the market, so don't mind us praising them every chance we get. Their genius layered design provides the perfect blend of softness, firmness and cooling technology for a more comfortable sleep. PureWow editors are particularly fond of the Classic bed, which we tested, and found that it helped us get to sleep faster and wake up *so* refreshed each day. Oh, and if you’re interested in some extra cool science behind it, it's coated in a botanical, antimicrobial treatment to prevent mold and bacterial growth (meaning you can plan on using it for a long time to come). Saatva is knocking up to $500 off the masterpiece right now, so it is the best time to try it for yourself.

2. Tuft & Needle Original Mattress

Bring home this PureWow reader-favorite bed, which boasts a firm feel you'll adore and contouring support you didn't think was possible. It consists of three sleep-enhancing features: A three-inch breathable Adaptive foam layer infused with cooling gel, a 6.5-inch base that offers foundation support (so you don't sink in!), and lastly, a plush cover that takes its durability to the next level. So, as one buyer says, "[It's] worth it. All night and day comfort. Almost no break-in period. I would say it took almost two weeks to feel heavenly and keeps getting better." Starting at $596, folks.

3. The Nectar Premier Mattress

What does sleeping on a five-layer mattress feel like, you ask? Imagine “the ideal ratio of softness, firmness and support,” says Nectar. Side sleeper, back sleeper, stomach sleeper—whatever your sleep style, you’ll find the comfort you need in this bed’s sweet spot between soft and firm, not to mention the therapeutic gel memory foam layer that aims to hit pressure points from your shoulders to your legs to promote spinal alignment. Couples will be even more impressed with the bed's minimal motion transfer (shout out to that foam stability base), so you won't wake each other up in the middle of the night.

4. DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress

We hate to sound too cliché, but reviewers say this mattress feels like sleeping on a cloud. For one, it has seven layers, each with their own heavenly benefits, like a cooling gel memory foam, a micro-coil system that gives it a little bounce and last, but most luxuriously not least, a quilted cashmere top cover. With one of the longest trial windows in the mattress game (you have a full 365 nights to decide if it’s the right fit for you) and a generous lifetime warranty, DreamCloud is a safe bet this Memorial Day.

5. Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress

After trying five different mattresses, a fellow PureWow editor said *this* was the only one that really helped her back pain. You can read the full 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]." In fact, nine out of ten Casper sleepers say they've experienced less back pain, which can be credited to the bed's Align Foam and Gel Support Pods, which promote healthy spinal alignment and prevent sinking, per the brand. Basically, it's worth the splurge (and remember, you're still getting a pretty good discount!).

6. Cocoon by Sealy Chill Mattress

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. That brings me to this Chill bed that customers can't stop talking about. Specifically, the fact that it has extra spring and foam construction to offer up some bounce, plus a Perfect Fit Memory Foam layer that adapts to the body for what could turn into the best sleep of your life. You'll never know unless you try it (and we recommend you do).

7. Avocado Green Mattress

First of all, this bed has 4.7 stars from more than 13,000 reviewers, most of whom mention how much more refreshed they feel after sleeping on it, compared to their old mattresses. One buyer even admitted that there was a battle over the Avocado during their divorce! "After losing that battle, I decided I wasn’t going to 'lose sleep' over it, so I immediately just ordered another," they wrote. "The firmness keeps me on top of the mattress, allowing me to better maintain my body temperature, but has just enough [cushioning] to give in on pressure points like my shoulders and hips." Need we say more?

8. Siena Memory Foam Mattress

After experiencing the Siena’s heat-reducing gel memory foam and no-spring design (replaced by a motion-reducing foam), you'll wish you had bought this mattress sooner. It's one of the most budget-friendly beds you can buy, and now that it's on sale for as low as $199, it's a no-brainer if you're hoping to replace your mattress without breaking the bank. But don't take its affordable price tag as a sign that it lacks support—buyers say its comfort level is a ten. One shares, “This bed is great! Not too soft, not too firm. Overall great support whether you sleep on your back or your side.”

9. Puffy Lux Mattress

Undoubtedly one of Puffy's most popular beds with more than 12,000 glowing reviews, this gem has six luxurious layers of premium memory foam and a base of contour-adapt coils, making it one of the best on the market. The brand is even endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), which means it has been reviewed by a board of doctors to ensure it's up to the highest standard in terms of support for your spine and back. And that’s one stamp of approval you can definitely trust.

10. Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Breeze Mattress

Like the idea of a supportive memory foam mattress with cooling technology and an adjustable base? Well, 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 an entirely new level with tons of elevated head and foot positions. This will especially come in handy to help relieve nighttime annoyances, such as acid reflux (IYKYK).

11. Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Hybrid Mattress

Here's why you'll want to hop on this deal on Brooklyn Bedding's Aurora Hybrid Mattress: For starters, it has a GlacioTex Cooling Cover and Hybrid Airflow, which basically means it will remove excess heat and keep optimal airflow if you're a hot sleeper. Morning backaches? They'll be a thing of the past, thanks to a gel swirl memory foam layer and a zoned coil core layer that puts your comfort above all. Just take it from this reviewer: "My husband and I absolutely love our new mattress! So soft and comfortable! We are both hot sleepers, and the Aurora Lux is so much cooler to sleep on."

12. Bear Star Hybrid Mattress

With four different mattress models to choose from (also including the Bear Pro and Bear Original), this brand offers a support level and material for every type of sleeper. And regardless of which one you end up with, you’ll love that each bed is specially designed to help your body recover after busy days and exercise, thanks to their exclusive Serene Foam that adapts to every contour and relieves pressure from your joints. Then there’s the copper-infused memory foam and moisture-wicking top cover, which help keep you cool through the night. If you buy a Bear mattress today, you'll get $400 worth of accessories when you use coupon code MEMDAY at checkout. This is not a drill.

13. Helix Midnight Luxe Mattress

Ideal for side sleepers, this medium-feel, nine-layered mattress has zoned lumbar support, a hypoallergenic quilted pillow top (choose between a TENCEL cover or a GlacioTex Cooling cover) and is two inches taller than the rest of the brand's Core Collection mattresses, keeping you elevated and supported while you dream. This glowing review will surely convince you to give it a try: "Since getting our Helix Midnight mattress, I have been getting more uninterrupted sleep than I ever have in my life! I would not have believed this was possible if I wasn't experiencing it in real life. I wish I had purchased the Helix mattress sooner. If you are on the fence, don't wait any longer. Just do it.”

14. Beautyrest Harmony Lux Mattress

Alright, sleeping beauty—if you want to feel like royalty every night, this is 100 percent the mattress for you. First and foremost, you'll get white-glove delivery, so you won't have to lift a finger. And in no time, you'll be snoozing on a luxuriously soft, quilted top and layers on layers of pressure-relieving foam. Meanwhile, a finiCool Lux feature helps keep you oh-so-cool as you catch those ZZZs, so you should wake up feeling refreshed and ready to rule your kingdom. Several buyers have mentioned that it's by far one of the best mattresses they've owned.

15. Birch Natural Mattress

If you've never heard of Birch, all you need to know is that it's one of the leading natural mattress brands that's been on our radar for years. We love that its items are free of polyurethane-based foams and harsh chemicals, and everything is sustainably sourced. This medium-firm bed is no exception, comprised of organic cashmere, organic New Zealand wool, organic Fair Trade cotton and natural Talalay latex. Beyond its light and breathable materials, this bed features 1,000 individually wrapped coils to truly support your form from head to toe. It may take a week for your body to adjust to it, but ultimately, you'll wish you had bought it a long time ago, according to buyers.

16. Leesa Sapira Hybrid Mattress

This hybrid mattress offers you the best of both worlds: the comfort of body-conforming foam and the support of springs (more than 1,000 pocket springs, to be exact). So as one happy Leesa reviewer says, “This mattress lives up to all the hype. It’s great for side-sleepers, and you don’t feel any movement from your partner." Another shopper says that it manages to be "responsive and supportive while being extra cushiony," which may or may not be the case with your current mattress (no shade, but it might be time to upgrade).

17. Nest Bedding Sparrow Signature Hybrid Mattress

All of Nest Bedding’s mattresses are designed with sustainability in mind. But for top tier comfort, we have our eye on the ever-popular Sparrow bed. It features a removable comfort top layer that can be flipped, replaced or exchanged for a different support level as your mattress wears down, which extends the life of the bed and keeps unnecessary waste from accumulating in landfills. The brand also has a line of natural and organic models that take the mission a step further. In addition to the peace of mind you get with a 365-night trial, free exchanges and free returns, Nest Bedding is offering up to 50 percent off right now, which is a pretty big discount for the brand.

18. Zinus Green Tea Aspire Memory Foam Mattress

If, like us, your dream is to find zen on a green tea-infused mattress, then you'll waste no time hopping on this deal. But if you’re wondering what, exactly, green tea has to do with bedding, allow us to explain: This unique addition, found infused in each layer of foam, apparently helps to dissipate heat and “keep your bed smelling and feeling fresh, night after night,” according to one reviewer. And anyone with a unique sleeping style—say, stomach sleepers who turn their head all night or side sleepers who curl up into fetal position—will enjoy 12 inches of thick, layered memory foam backed by a massive ten-year warranty.
