As we have seen in past years, Cyber Monday — which in many cases runs all week long — continues to be a great time to shop for mattress deals. Most brands and retailers are still having sales and dropping prices by at least $100, making some of the newer, already affordable mattresses even more attainable. Our advice: Do some research and check out our favorite mattresses, all of which were tested by the Strategist team.
If you’ve been flirting with the idea of a mattress or mattress topper upgrade, now is the time of the year do it. And if the prices aren’t sweet enough, many of the below promotions will also get you a free pillow or set of sheets. Keep your eyes peeled for more Cyber Week deals as we continue to update this page, and follow us on Twitter for more timely sales coverage. The holidays are almost underway — we’re here to help.
Aviya is offering $200 off its mattress with code STRATCM through December 6. When writer Lori Keong tested this mattress a while back, she said, “Sleeping on this changed my perception of what soft-but-supportive means.” The Aviya sandwiches inner springs between three layers of high-density foam. It’s a great choice for people who don’t have time to do tons of research but know they’d like a bed with inner springs rather than foam all the way down.
Avocado was rated our best ecoconscious mattress, which means you’re paying for coziness and peace of mind. And now through December 9, Avocado is offering a bunch of great deals, including $200 off any mattress, $150 off a bed frame when you buy a mattress with code STRATBED, $50 off mattress-pad protectors with code PROTECT50, $50 off mattress toppers with code TOP50, and 20 percent off any pillow with code STRATPILLOWS.
Birch by Helix
Through December 10, Birch by Helix is taking $200 off any mattress with code CYBER200.
Cocoon by Sealy
If you’ve got a chronically achy back, like former Strategist editor Simone Kitchens, Cocoon by Sealy could help relieve your pain. Kitchens tested the firmer of its two mattresses and called the Cocoon “supportive enough to help alleviate some chronic back pain.” Through December 3, you’ll get 25 percent off its Chill Bundle, which includes a mattress, free DreamFit sheet set, and DreamFit pillows.
Eight Sleep is celebrating Cyber Monday with $300 off its fully customizable Pod mattress, a free exclusive Gravity blanket, and free shipping.
If you prefer a soft mattress but your partner likes one that’s firm, Helix has a mattress for you — along with eight other options, depending on your sleep needs. The Moonlight Luxe has a soft feel that’s backed by supportive dynamic foam, and a hybrid design and breathable cover mean you’ll sweat less throughout the night. But from now until December 10, Helix is offering $100 off when you spend $600 or more on any mattress, $150 off when you spend $1,250 or more, and $200 off when you spend $1,750 or more. All sale mattresses come with two free pillows.
Through December 9, Layla is offering $150 off any size mattress, plus two free pillows and a free mattress protector. Layla mattresses are flippable and feature different firmnesses on either side, so it’s like getting two beds in one. That and its not-too-expensive price tag make it a great choice for any guest bedroom.
Lucid’s memory-foam mattress has over 1,000 five-star ratings from enthusiastic Amazon reviewers. It’s currently 22 percent off, which is the lowest it’s been priced for over a year.
The Marpac Yogabed features a zip-off washable cover over layers of responsive foam designed to relieve pressure points and minimize motion transfer between couples — and while other mattress brands let you test a bed for 100 days, Marpac will let you try one out for 101. And because the YogaBed is affordable to begin with, it’s really affordable now that Marpac is offering 20 percent off everything until December 12. Namaste.
For its Cyber Monday sale, Molecule is offering 25 percent off sitewide. Plus, you’ll get a free set of sheets with your purchase of any mattress.
If you’re looking for a foam mattress that’s both highly rated and affordable, Nectar is a good choice. Composed of two layers of gel memory foam that keep you cool while you snooze, it offers a perfect balance of softness and support. It’s also one of the highest-rated mattresses on all of Amazon, and from now through December 2, you can take $125 off with code STRATEGIST.
Now through December 8, if you spend over $1,299 at Nest Bedding, it will take $300 off your entire order. Nest’s twin-size mattress normally costs $1,899, making that $1,299 pretty easy to reach.
PlushBeds, which specializes in green mattresses, is offering several impressive deals on mattresses, sofa-bed mattresses, and mattress toppers until December 6. You’ll save $1,250 on all latex mattresses plus two free organic latex pillows, a plush luxury sheet set, and a protector. If you’d prefer a memory-foam mattress, you’ll save $600 plus get two free pillows and a plush luxury sheet set. PlushBeds is also offering $100 off all sofa-bed mattresses and toppers.
For folks who are looking for a soft but springy bed, Purple may be your best bet because of its proprietary Hyper-Elastic Polymer layer, which is made of springy grids rather than something flat and solid. The grids also increase airflow, which makes this good for hot sleepers. From now until December 5, you’ll save up to $400 on mattresses and sleep bundles.
Through December 2, Tempur-Pedic is offering 30 percent off its Cloud Prima mattress. The Cloud Prima is a medium-soft memory-foam mattress that claims to be cushy and cooling. You will also save More Than 40 percent on the Tempur-Cloud Prima mattress and Tempur-Cloud Prima mattress with the Ergo Premier Power Base. Plus all pillows are buy one get one free and you’ll receive a $300 VISA gift card with the purchase of select mattress sets. And like the Caspers of the mattress world, Tempur-Pedic lets you try this one out for 100 days and return it if you’re not happy with it.
Tuft & Needle
Writer Lauren Ro, who prefers a firm mattress, tested Tuft & Needle’s original mattress and called it “a solid introduction to a compressed mattress-in-a-box.” The Mint has an extra layer of comfort foam and 30 percent more graphite in the top layer, which is supposed to draw heat away from your body as you sleep. If you’re interested in testing this cooling mattress for less, you’ll save $200 at checkout. You can also try the hybrid mattress today and take $300 off full price or 15 percent off the Original mattress plus 15 percent off all bedding and furniture.
Strategist editor Katy Schneider tested WinkBeds luxury firm mattress a while back and was quickly converted from the type of person who “will only sleep on pillows” to “I think I’m a firm-mattress person.” From now until December 6, WinkBeds is offering $325 off any mattress with code STRAT325.
Strategist senior writer Karen Iorio Adelson tested a Zinus Mattress a while back and called it “the best value for a mattress, full stop.” She says it’s the only soft mattress she likes sleeping on. That’s because of the firm support layers hiding beneath the plush top. Running through December 3, you can get 20 percent off anything on its website, plus up to 60 percent off this quilted-top hybrid mattress in any size, making this affordable mattress an even better deal.
