If a formula existed for getting a good night’s sleep, having a good pillow would be an essential part of it. Now on sale for Amazon’s October Prime Day event, the Casper Original pillow is one of our top picks. And at 30 percent off, it’s currently cheaper than it was during the first Prime Day sale in July, bringing it down to the lowest price we’ve ever seen.
The Casper Original pillow has a nested, pillow-within-a-pillow design. Inside, there’s a firmer core that helps with head, neck, and spine alignment — which is why we named it the best pillow for neck support. Outside, there’s a layer of plush, fluffy cushioning. The pillow has a two-inch gusset around the perimeter to help prevent the microfiber fill from bunching, and the outer layer is machine washable. Both the standard and king sizes are on sale.
Casper makes a range of pillows to suit different sleeping preferences. The brand’s Essentials pillow, which is discounted for the October Prime Day sale, is a dry-clean-only pillow that also has a two-inch gusset to help prevent bunching. It’s designed to be compatible with every sleeping position; I slept on the Essentials pillow for a few weeks to test it out, and while I am naturally a side sleeper, the pillow was comfortable and supportive even when I rolled onto my back. At 34 percent off, the standard-size pillow is now under $30 — a great deal, especially if your bed or a guest-room bed could use a refresh ahead of the holidays.
