Aviya is taking $200 off its signature mattress with code STRAT200.
Former Strategist writer Lori Keong tested the Luxury Firm version of this hybrid and was immediately taken by how plush and bouncy it was. “The innersprings are a big plus, but they’re buried far beneath the layers of foam,” Keong says. “I 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.”
Avocado, which uses organic and recycled materials in its mattresses, is giving Strat readers 10 percent off sitewide with code STRAT10.

The brand’s Aurora Luxe hybrid mattress comes in three firmness levels and is equipped with an array of cooling features, including copper-infused foam.
The brand’s Talalay latex pillow comes in two different lofts — low and high — “and the low-loft version is flat enough for you to sleep on your belly with a neutral spine to avoid nursing a strained neck all day,” Miles reports, which is why she named it one of the best pillows for stomach sleepers.

Or you can take $250 off the brand’s smart covers, which transform any mattress into a smart mattress, and $150 off a bundle of “sleep essentials” that includes two pillows, a sheet set, and a mattress protector.

The Helix Dawn is one of our favorite hybrid mattresses, with Strategist associate editor Louis Cheslaw calling it “an affordable and firm hybrid mattress that avoids that sinking feeling, thanks to its balanced combination of springs and foam.” After testing it out, he said he “never woke up feeling hot, sweaty, or achy in the morning.”
Layla is offering $150 off any memory-foam mattress purchase and $200 off any hybrid-mattress purchase with no codes required — and it’ll throw in two free pillows with any mattress order. The brand is also taking $110 off its weighted blankets, $50 off its memory-foam topper, and $70 off its bamboo sheets in any size.
Layla’s Hybrid mattress is the best flippable hybrid mattress, according to Strategist writer Tembe Denton-Hurst. She and her partner have “slept on both sides, firm and soft, and each proved supportive,” she says, adding that “while there are cheaper hybrid mattresses, the ability to simply flip this one should you want a softer or firmer feel makes it worth the investment, especially if you’re sharing a mattress with someone who prefers a different feel.”
“Both supportive and pillowy soft, this copper-gel-bead-infused memory foam topper by Layla is designed to pull heat away from your body while you sleep,” Miles write in our guide to best cooling mattress toppers. “The copper infusion keeps your body cool and creates an antimicrobial sleeping surface.”

“Before sleeping on the Natural Bliss, I slept on a spring-and-foam mattress and would occasionally wake up with tension in my muscles,” says former Strategist writer Hillary Reid. “But I never woke up tense after a night on the latex Natural Bliss; in fact, I often woke with my muscles feeling noticeably relaxed.”
This natural latex mattress topper is both Oeko-Tex Standard 100 and GREENGUARD Gold certified.

Saatva’s classic mattress is our pick for the best overall mattress, thanks to its combo of inner springs, memory foam, and a pillow top that comes in three different firmness levels, providing options for all sorts of sleepers. Senior editor Simone Kitchens, who suffers from back pain, found that “the supported feeling of this bed kept my lower back from collapsing in, making my spine feel more aligned overall.”
Former Strategist writer Chloe Anello crowned Saatva’s down alternative comforter the best organic comforter. “The hypoallergenic cotton shell ensures proper airflow, and the 3-D down-alternative fibers blended with Lyocell regulate your temperature,” Anello says.

WinkBed’s Black Friday sale includes $300 off any WinkBed mattress, including the foam-and-spring WinkBed Mattress, which comes in four firmness levels.
Strategist senior editor Katy Schneider found that the “luxury firm” version of the WinkBeds mattress is supportive enough to reduce back pain and minimize the feeling of any movement, if you sleep with someone who tends to toss and turn.
