Labor Day is Monday, September 5, and many mattress brands are celebrating with holiday weekend sales and offers, from discounts that take hundreds of dollars off to freebie add-ons like pillows and sheets. Below, we’ve rounded up the best-of-the-best deals on mattresses you can buy online — including many we’ve tested ourselves and some of which get even better with Strategist-exclusive discount codes. To make comparison shopping a bit easier, all the prices we’ve listed are for queen-size mattresses, but every discount is available on mattresses in other sizes too. And if you’re still unsure of which one to buy, check out Strategist staffers’ thorough reviews of our tested-and-true favorites.

Allswell is taking 20 percent off everything on its site with the code LABORDAY20, which is automatically applied at checkout. We particularly like the brand’s luxe hybrid mattress, our top pick for a firm mattress. Former Strategist editor Margaret Rhodes says that while the plush topper is soft, the mattress allows “you to float firmly atop the mattress instead of nestling in.”

Amerisleep’s best-selling mattress, AS3, has a medium-firm density that offers a balance between plush and support. The mattress is available as a full foam core or hybrid coil core, and Strategist readers can knock off $450 on any mattress with code STRAT450. If you’re interested in totally renovating your sleep space, you can also save 30 percent on adjustable bed-base and mattress bundles and 40 percent on upholstered bed frames with the purchase of a mattress.

The Aviya Mattress

When former Strategist writer Lori Keong tested the Aviya mattress, she was “amazed at just how propped up and aligned my body felt while supine, yet how comfortably I slept thanks to the padding of the quilted foam top.” And from now through Labor Day, Strategist readers can take $200 off their purchase at Aviya with the code STRAT200.

Until September 12, Avocado is offering Strategist readers 10 percent off sitewide with the code STRAT10. The sale includes the brand’s green and vegan mattresses as well as adjustable bed frames and bases. Avocado’s fleece and organic cotton loungewear is also 50 percent off (no code necessary), plus an additional 10 percent with code LABORDAY. In particular, we like Avocado’s pillow-top mattress, an eco-friendly option that is cushy yet supportive and naturally cooling.

Strategist readers can take 30 percent off across Bear’s site with the code LD30 — and with every mattress purchase, the brand will throw in two Cloud Pillows for free. Bear’s OG mattress is a solid choice for athletes; former Strategist senior writer and devoted runner Karen Iorio Adelson found that after a night’s rest, her legs felt “fresher and less fatigued than they normally would on days after doing sprints and thigh-punishing barre workouts.” Additionally, the company offers a 365-night risk-free trial and a lifetime warranty on all of its mattresses.

Through September 19, you can save up to $1,000 on select Beautyrest mattresses, including the brand’s Black and Harmony Lux collections.
