20 Best Early Memorial Day Mattress Deals (2024)


Mattresses and cars are two things you should never pay sticker price for, because sticker prices are inflated and so “deals” are usually the actual retail price. We can’t help you with cars, but we can help you get a new comfortable bed. We keep track of the prices of all our favorite mattresses so we can tell you when it’s the right time to buy them, and whether it’s cheaper than usual or just at its regular “sale” price. We’ve also included deals on our favorite sheets. Unless noted, all prices listed here are for queen sizes.

Check out all of our mattress recommendations in our Best Mattresses, Best Organic Mattresses, and Best Mattresses for Side Sleepers guides. We’ve also compiled our favorite beds that you can get straight from Amazon.

Updated May 22, 2024: We’ve added deals on our favorite sheets and Casper discounts.

Best Mattress Deals

Helix Sleep Midnight Lux Hybrid Mattress

Must use code MEMDAY30 at checkout for the full discount. At the time of this writing, the 25 percent discount is automatically applied in the cart, but the code gives you an additional 5 percent. This is our favorite mattress and is usually priced at $1,780, so it’s nice to see a discount, even if it’s a small one. There are several firmness levels available to choose from depending on your preferences and sleeping position.

Like the helix above, enter MEMDAY30 Get Full 30% Off at Checkout. I’m not sure we’ve ever seen a Helix mattress reach full price, but it’s a pretty solid discount on a very expensive bed. Whichever firmness level you choose, this mattress comes in two bulky boxes, so you’ll have to zip both pieces together to create one thick bed that stays remarkably cool.

Leesa Sapira Mattress

The Leesa Sapira is our runner-up for its soft but supportive feel and cooling upper. It may not be as good as the Helix, but we kept buying it over and over again during testing. This is the sale price we usually see.

Avocado is almost always 10 percent off on their site, so this is $100 off instead of $300. Still, that’s a bigger discount than we usually find on our favorite organic mattresses. WIRED reviewer Scott Gilbertson says this was the only mattress he and his wife agreed on, somehow making it work for his wife’s soft mattress preference and his firm mattress preference. It is made of organic latex, organic wool and organic cotton. According to the company, it does not contain any polyurethane, fire retardants, memory foam or chemical adhesives.

Raymour & Flanigan’s price is the lowest we’ve tracked on this mattress, but Birch is also offering its lowest price if you prefer to buy outright (though it’s not as discounted and you’ll need to use the code need to use) MEMDAY25, Because it is medium-firm, it should satisfy most sleeping styles. A pillowy Euro top and an extra layer of blended cashmere make it exceptional at temperature regulation. It is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS)-certified organic and uses natural latex without polyurethane-based foam.

We’ve recommended Casper for many years, and the company recently revamped its mattress line. It will soon be included in our best mattress buying guide. If you tend to heat up, this is a great option thanks to Casper’s cooling phase change material as well as three patented HeatDelete bands, which kept our tester sweat-free all night long. A lot of beds say they are cool; This one did just that. The pocketed coils support the hips, waist and lower back, so back and stomach sleepers will find it especially pressure relieving.

This is another new bed from Casper that we’ve tested and will soon be included in our buying guide. It’s all foam, so it’s more affordable than hybrid options, but it’s still a great medium-firm bed that supports your hips. All-foam mattresses often get too hot, but this one doesn’t have to, as this one has a top layer of open-cell foam that Casper calls Breathe Flex Foam. It has better edge support than most foam beds, but it’s still not as good as hybrids.

Serta Perfect Sleeper Cobalt Mattress

Serta Perfect Sleeper Plush Pillowtop Innerspring Mattress

you must select Last Level with A plush pillow top To get the version we tested. It’s not a huge discount, but it is one of those rare mattresses that isn’t constantly on “sale.” This is a classic innerspring, so it won’t come wrapped in a box like foam beds, but it strikes an excellent balance between soft and supportive.

If you want an organic mattress for your kids, you probably don’t want to spend a thousand dollars or more. If they’re still okay sleeping in a twin-sized bed, we recommend the Kiwi mattress. It sometimes drops to $649, but that’s still cheaper than the usual $719 sale price we see. It’s made using certified organic cotton, wool, and latex.

Bare Elite Hybrid Mattress

Bear Elite Hybrid Mattress

Enter the code Memorial at checkout. This is the usual price we see the Bear Elite at, but it goes up to $1,614 and sometimes reaches its full price. This is a great mattress that we recommend most for side sleepers. It’s firmer than most, but it provided just the right amount of sag for our testers’ hips and elbows while still giving them support on their sides. The quilted pillow top feels like a luxury you don’t usually see at this price.

We recommend this bed in our best mattresses on Amazon guide, but it’s not currently discounted at the retailer. Still, this is a bed that offers luxury at a very low price (in the mattress world, anyway). There’s enough support for different sleeping positions and the gel top layer keeps it cool. However, our tester noted that the middle of the bed was still slightly higher than the sides, even after the recommended air-out time.

Zinus Green Tea Memory Foam Mattress on Bed Frame

Zinus is a popular inexpensive mattress brand and features thick, high-density foam for pressure relief. We think it’s best for heavier people. Our tester didn’t sink into this mattress at all, so there was no back support. If you’re buying for a child or you’re particularly light, perhaps consider another option.

Unfortunately, super cheap mattresses usually aren’t the best in the long run. But if you are young and your back hasn’t hurt yet, or you need to arrange a guest room, you won’t need to spend too much. The Best Price mattress is very soft and we slept comfortably on it. We’re also impressed by its 10-year warranty and the foam is CertiPUR-US certified, so it’s made without formaldehyde or flame retardants. Price varies, but it’s around $219 on Amazon.

Best Sheet Deals

Brooklinen Organic Sheets

Brooklinen Organic Cotton Core Sheet Set

These are our favorite organic sheets. They’re soft but not overly silky and made from GOTS-certified organic cotton. They stay cool if you need sheets in the summer or need to sleep warm all the time. If you prefer linen, satin, or cashmere, we also love Brooklinen sheets.

Enter the code mdw24 at checkout to get this discount on our favorite flannel sheets. There are also some final sale colors available that receive additional discounts if available in your required size. These were comfortable and warm in winter and got softer every time they were washed.

They have dropped in price since we first tried them, which is a nice surprise. They are soft and feel great to sleep in. It’s flannel, so it will still be warm, but they are lighter than the Company Store set.

I love my buffy sheets. They’re made from Eucalyptus Tencel Lyocell, and the result is light and airy, but still somehow warm and cozy without making you sweat. They are also available in 34 colors, although many are out of stock in smaller sizes.

Enter the code MDW20 To apply this exemption. Riley’s percale sheets are more expensive than our favorite sheets from Target, but they’re a little softer. Percale is great if you sleep hot as they are cool and crisp.

JCPenney Wrinkle Guard Sateen Sheet

use code Sheet To get this discount. Our favorite satin sheets are already affordable, usually at $90, and they’re discounted frequently. They’re soft, cool, and silky, and WIRED writer Nena Farrell said she could barely tell the difference between these and Brooklinen’s much more expensive satin sheets.

Cozy Earth sheets are pretty expensive even with this discount, but if you can spend the money, they are extremely soft to sleep on. Although they are cool to the touch, once you lay down in bed they become warm, but in a good way, as if they have melted around you.
