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.)

$574 at Allswell Home
with code: STRAT15


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.”

Birch by Helix

Birch Natural Mattress

Birch is offering $200 off any mattress, which are made using sustainably sourced materials including organic cotton and Rainforest Alliance–certified Talalay latex, with code STRAT200.

Right now, any mattress from Casper, arguably the originator of the mattress-in-a-box trend, is 15 percent off 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 that we’ve said makes a great choice for kids.

Cocoon by Sealy

Chill Memory Foam

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, and former Strategist writer Simone Kitchens found that “the firm option was supportive enough to help alleviate some chronic back pain” she was experiencing.

Eight Sleep


The “smart” bed from Eight Sleep comes with sleep tracking via its phone app. And this Memorial Day, you can take $200 off the price of the mattress. If you’re looking for a total refresh, you can take $350 off their Sleep Essential Bundle, with purchase of the Pod, which includes a mattress protector, eucalyptus sheet set, and two foam pillows. Strategist readers also get 20 percent off all individual accessories using the code STRAT20.

Helix, which offers nine different hybrid mattress options, has a three-tiered deal this Memorial Day weekend exclusively for Strategist readers. Get $100 off any purchase with code STRAT100; get $150 off when you spend $1,250 or more with code STRAT150; or get $200 off when you spend $1,750 or more with code STRAT200. They’re also throwing in two free microfiber Dream pillows with any purchase using those codes.

Layla Sleep

Layla Memory Foam Mattress

Layla is offering $150 off any mattress purchase, and $200 off any hybrid mattress purchase, along with two free memory-foam pillows (a $150 value). The code STRATEGIST gives our readers an additional $10 off.

Leesa is offering $100 off their new Studio by Leesa mattress, as well as $150 off the Leesa Original, $275 off the Leesa Hybrid, and $350 off the Leesa Legend. Strategist managing editor — and self-described stomach sleeper — Maxine Builder found that every night she slept on the original Leesa, she “fell into a deep sleep quickly and stayed there.”


Molecule 1 Mattress

This Memorial Day, Molecule is taking 20 percent off everything on its site with the code STRAT20. Plus, it’s throwing in a free percale or sateen sheet set (a $219 value) with every mattress purchase. If you don’t know where to start, may we suggest the all-foam Molecule 1 Mattress, which has a cover that wicks heat and moisture to keep sleepers cool.
