While there are lots of great deals to shop this fall, mattress sales are always high on our list. Lots of Strategist-approved brands are offering some major discounts — and not just on mattresses but on bedding accessories like pillows and mattress covers, too. While shopping these sales, we suggest checking out our list of the best mattresses (all of which have been tested by the Strategist team) to see which brands are best for you.
To make comparing deals a little easier, all prices below are for queen-size mattresses (but every discount is of course available on other sizes, too). And with more retailers starting to launch their own fall mattress deals this week — like the ones for Prime Day (which runs from October 13 to 14) and Walmart’s Big Save Event (which runs through October 15) — we’ve reorganized this post to lead with bigger-box retailers’ various deals, which are followed by sales at specific companies and brands.
Unsurprisingly, Amazon is offering discounts on plenty of mattresses during Prime Day, including on name brands like Casper and Tuft & Needle. Since there are a lot of deals rolling out at different times over the two-day event, we’ll be updating this post with the Strategist-approved mattresses worth buying when we see them available. (If you’re looking for bed frames or other bedroom décor, head here.)
For its Big Save Event, Walmart slashed prices on a handful of brands we’ve written about before, including Strategist favorites like Sealy and Lucid. Whether you’re looking for firm memory foam or an innerspring mattress that’s a little softer, there are options aplenty. And if you’re buying anything, now may be a good time to consider signing up for Walmart+, the retailer’s new membership program that, for roughly $13/month, gets you unlimited free deliveries, discounts on gas, and more perks.
