The Best Mattresses on Sale for Way Day 2023

Best Overall

1. Sleep Inc. Hybrid Mattress

Sleep Inc.

  • Notable Review: “This bed is AMAZING. The mattress is so soft-yet-firm enough to where I don’t feel like I’m sinking in. My back pain is slowly starting to dissipate after sleeping on this mattress and I wake up feeling energized. I’m so glad I purchased. It was well worth the price!”

This 12-inch mattress is like the Goldilocks of mattresses—not too firm but not too soft with a combination of foam and innersprings. Plus, it’s compatible with adjustable bed bases. The top layer of gel memory foam is also designed to pull heat away from your body, so you don’t overheat as you sleep.

Most Highly Reviewed

2. Wayfair Sleep Cooling Gel Mattress

Wayfair Sleep

  • Notable Review: “This review is coming [two-and-a-half years] after purchase. … The mattress has maintained shape and comforts thus far. I prefer a more firm mattress and this definitely fits the bill.”

A quick scroll through the 18,500-plus reviews on this 12-inch memory foam model, and you’ll soon see why it’s a major best seller. Wayfair says it molds to the shape of your body for a customized and soothing feel. And the top layer is infused with ultra-cooling gel, which purports to prevent you from overheating during the night.

Best Memory Foam

3. Sealy To Go Memory Foam Mattress

Sealy To Go

  • Notable Review: “I opened on the bed which was easier than trying to move after. It immediately inflated to 11.5 inches. The next morning it was at 12 inches. I have a bad back and have to shift several times throughout night. I’ve only slept on it one day and did not toss and turn. Love it.”

This medium-firm mattress is made with 12 inches of layered foam that will reportedly help to evenly distribute your weight to relieve pressure off your body. The result? You can sleep restfully and wake up nice and refreshed.

Best Reversible Model

4. Home Plush Memory Foam Mattress

Home Plus

  • Notable Review: “This mattress is very comfortable. We are currently using the softer side, and I find that my joint pain is much relieved! Our previous mattress system using air bladders was very expensive and not as comfortable as this one”

Firm mattresses aren’t for everyone, and if you prefer a softer, plush bed, this one’s for you. Actually, it comes with two different sides—soft and firm—so you can test both to see which you like best. The mattress is 10-inches thick and the gel memory foam construction isn’t just cooling and breathable, it’s also designed to prevent motion transmission. No more elbowing your partner to stop tossing and turning!

Best for Hot Sleepers

5. Nora By Wayfair Sleep Memory Foam Mattress

Nora by Wayfair

  • Notable Review: “All I can say is wow! Great sturdy mattress. Unbelievably, no adjustment time needed; had a great night’s sleep from the first night. Just enough firmness and the amount of memory ‘foamness’ is just right.”

This bed, which features cooling technology for all of you hot sleepers out there, is equipped with what the company calls conforming, orthopedic support. You’ll also get a 100-night trial with this bed, so if you don't end up loving it, you can return it or exchange for a different mattress.

Best Innerspring

6. Wayfair Sleep Pillowtop Innerspring Mattress

Wayfair Sleep

  • Notable Review: “Nice mattress for the price. I worried it would feel cheap but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality. My grandson said he liked the way it formed around him like a hug!”

The mattress is on sale today only starting at $134 for a full size, with more than 17,000 customers saying they love it. Despite having innersprings instead of foam, the design reportedly won’t having you bouncing and bobbing with every turn, and the materials were specifically chosen to improve air flow to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the night.
