The Best Memorial Day Mattress Sales

Memorial Day weekend is (finally) here, and the mattress discounts are deep. Almost all of our favorite brands are slashing prices on mattresses and offering sitewide deals on sheetsblankets, and pillows along with exclusive discounts for Strategist readers — so make note if there’s a required code listed for the mattress you’ve got your eye on. One word of advice: Let our mattress roundup be your guide. Nearly all of the mattresses below have been tested by the Strategist team, and you can read more about them here. And finally, to make comparison shopping even easier, we’re showing the price of queen-size mattresses for all options below.



Allswell is a longtime Strategist favorite for its “supportive but soft” foam-coil hybrid mattress. When you use the code STRATMEM, you can take 20 percent off the brand’s Allswell, Brick, Luxe, and Supreme models.

The Aviya Mattress

Former Strategist writer Lori Keong called this mattress “plush yet delightfully bouncy.” The brand is offering $200 off all sizes with the code STRAT200.

Avocado, which we’ve dubbed the best ecoconscious mattress because of its use of organic and recycled materials, will knock $100 off the price of its Green, Vegan, and Latex mattresses with the code HONOR and $250 off its new Luxury Plus mattress with the code MEMORIALDAY. Plus, it’s offering $50 off linen bedding with the code GRATITUDE and an additional $300 off select bed frames (no code required). Note that Avocado allows only one code per purchase.

Bear’s already-affordable mattress, which is ideal for athletes because of its temperature-regulating, muscle-soothing cover, just got even cheaper: With the code STRAT25, it’ll take 25 percent off the memory-foam Bear mattress — and throw in two free cloud pillows and a sheet set. If you prefer a hybrid mattress to memory foam, you can use the same code (and get the same free stuff) on the Bear Hybrid, which we sum up this way: “If you want to fall asleep fast, it’s worth the price.”

Birch Natural Mattress

If you use the code STRAT200, Birch gives you $200 off any mattress, all of which are made using sustainably sourced materials including organic cotton and Rainforest Alliance–certified Talalay latex. Plus, the brand will throw in two free organic cotton pillows with any mattress purchase.

Arguably the originator of the mattress-in-a-box trend, Casper is currently offering 15 percent off of most mattresses with the code MEMDAY15. While its Original foam mattress is not ideal for hot sleepers, former Strategist editor Margaret Rhodes says, “For everyone else, you can’t go wrong.” If you prefer a hybrid, the Casper Wave Hybrid has both contoured foam and dome-shaped gel pods to provide support for your back, neck, and shoulders (former Strategist writer Lori Keong called it “a souped-up, premium version of the original Casper”). We also like the Casper Element Mattress, the brand’s most basic offering, which we find to be a great choice for kids.

Cocoon By Sealy

Sealy’s mattress-in-a-box, which has cooling technology that’s ideal for the sweltering summer nights ahead, is 35 percent off, no code needed. The all-foam mattress comes in medium-soft or extra-firm. (Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens found that “the firm option was supportive enough to help alleviate some chronic back pain” she was experiencing.) With every purchase, the brand will also throw in two free pillows and a sheet set.

Eight Sleep

Eight Sleep Pod Pro Mattress

Set your preferred sleep temperature and this smart mattress from Eight Sleep will warm or cool itself throughout the night to keep you comfortable. It also comes with sleep tracking via its phone app. As part of the brand’s Memorial Day sale, you can take up to $350 off the price of the mattress with code AFF150. Plus, you can take $100 off the Pod Cover (which transforms any mattress into a smart mattress) and get up to 20 percent off bed accessories with a mattress or cover purchase.
