The Best Memorial Day Mattress Sales

In the Memorial Day sales bonanza, mattress deals are always some of the best. Almost all of our favorite brands are slashing prices on mattresses and throwing in extra discounts on sheets, blankets, and pillows, too. Many of them also have some exclusive discounts for Strategist readers, so make sure to note if there’s a required code listed for the mattress you’ve got your eye on. Our advice: Do some research and check out our guide to mattresses, all of which have been tried and tested by the Strategist team. And 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, and when you use the code MEM20, you can take 20 percent off their Luxe and Supreme mattresses, as well as bedding and bath items like robes, towels, throws, duvet sets, and decorative pillows. (We particularly like this terra-cotta geometric-patterned throw.)


Aviya, a mattress that former Strategist writer Lori Keong called “plush yet delightfully bouncy,” is offering $200 off twin, twin-extra-long, full, and queen sizes with the code STRAT200. If you need something bigger, you can use the code STRAT250 to get $250 off king and California-king sizes.


Avocado, which we’ve dubbed the best ecoconscious mattress because of its use of organic and recycled materials, is giving customers $200 off with code STRATAVO; $150 off when you buy a bed frame and mattress with code STRATBED; and two pillows free with mattress purchase with code STRATPILLOW. Plus, they’re offering an additional $50 off for verified nurses, doctors, emergency medical technicians, firefighters, law enforcement, military personnel, and educators.

Bear’s already-affordable mattress, which is ideal for athletes, just got even cheaper: With the code STRAT20, it’ll take 20 percent off the memory-foam Bear mattress — and throw in two free cloud pillows. If you prefer a hybrid mattress to memory foam, the Bear Hybrid is also 20 percent off using that very same code (you’ll get the two free pillows, too). Of the spring-and-foam Hybrid mattress, we’ve said, “If you want to fall asleep fast, it’s worth the price.”
