1. Best Overall: Saatva Classic
This Memorial Day, get $200 off any Saatva mattress purchase of $1,000 or more (the discount is automatically applied at checkout). Known for its ultra-luxe products and free white-glove delivery, Saatva offers a variety of models for a wide range of sleep needs.
By choosing the Saatva Classic, you're investing in quality materials that will last you for years. Though the bed comes with a 15-year warranty, odds are you won't need it. The Mattress Advisor review team awarded the Classic a perfect 10 in durability thanks to its incredible construction, which consists of innerspring coils, memory foam, and a super soft pillow top.
2. Best Memory Foam Mattress: Nectar
A Nectar mattress is an affordable choice any day of the year, but the brand's Memorial Day sale offers even more savings. Along with a discounted mattress, customers will take home a bundle of free accessories worth nearly $400—that's two cooling pillows, a sheet set, and a mattress protector at no extra cost.
According to Mattress Advisor testers, this Nectar bed is one of the best memory foam mattresses for hot sleepers because it uses a special gel-infused foam, plus it provides expert pressure relief and edge support. Memory foam tends to have weak edge support due to the contouring nature of the material, but the Nectar's design helps keep the sides sturdy.
3. Best Cooling Mattress: Helix Midnight
If you're looking for a mattress that feels made for you, Helix is the perfect fit. The brand's lineup includes 13 unique mattresses—and this Memorial Day, they're all available at a discount.
4. Best for Side Sleepers: The WinkBed
If you sleep on your side, find comfort in The WinkBed, which is designed to relieve hip and back pressure that often plagues side sleepers. Made with gel-infused foam and supportive innerspring coils, this mattress helps keep the spine aligned throughout the night. In other words, you may finally be able to say goodbye to morning aches and pains.
This Memorial Day weekend, get $300 off any WinkBeds mattress.
5. Best for Couples: DreamCloud
If you sleep with a partner, you know that sharing a bed has its downsides—especially if your other half tosses and turns. The DreamCloud is a top pick for couples because its unique six-layer construction uses motion-isolating foam to muffle movement, ensuring that both you and your partner have a disruption-free sleep.
The bed's medium-firm feel is an ideal level for most sleep positions and DreamCloud makes the mattress buying experience as risk-free as possible by offering a lifetime warranty. This Memorial Day weekend, the brand is promoting incredible discounts, plus giving away $399 worth of free accessories.
6. Best for Stomach Sleepers: Brooklyn Signature
As one of the first companies to introduce the "bed-in-a-box" model, Brooklyn Bedding is known for its affordable, high-quality mattresses—all of which are handcrafted in the U.S. This Memorial Day, get 25% off by using the promo code MEMORIAL25 at checkout.
Brooklyn Bedding offers six unique mattresses (five of which are hybrids) at prices that won't break the bank. The Brooklyn Signature mattress, in particular, is a great choice for stomach sleepers who want a combination of contouring comfort and deep compression support.
7. Best for Sex: Casper Original
There's a reason why most people are familiar with the Casper name. The classic brand sells some of the best mattresses in the business, and you can get one for 15% off this Memorial Day.
Plus, the all-foam Casper Original has several qualities that make it well-equipped for sex, like perforated foam that is far more breathable than typical memory foam (so it'll keep you and your partner cool when things get steamy). And its expert responsiveness lends bounce when you switch positions.
8. Best for Back Pain: Bear
Banish back pain with Bear's Original mattress. Constructed using 10 inches of thick, supportive foam, this bed keeps the spine in healthy alignment by pushing back against movement and providing soft cushioning at the hips. The result is a weightless feeling that leaves little to no pressure on your lumbar region, which is ideal for sleepers who struggle with aches and pains.
Though this mattress sounds pricey, Bear's Memorial Day sale includes 25% off everything on the brand's website, plus a free gift set (consisting of Cloud pillows and sheets) worth $250. Just use the code MD25 at checkout.
9. Best for Combination Sleepers: Leesa Hybrid
One of the biggest problems for combination sleepers is that memory foam isn't very responsive, meaning it takes extra effort to change positions during the night. But that's not the case with the Leesa Hybrid, which adapts to your movements so you can easily transition from sleeping on your side to your back. This Memorial Day, customers can get up to $300 off the Leesa Hybrid (depending on the size) or any other Leesa mattress that catches their eye. Did we forget to mention that your purchase also comes with two free pillows?
10. Most Durable: GhostBed
GhostBed's Classic mattress is responsive and sleeps cool, but perhaps the best thing about this memory foam and latex combo is its durability. Once a mattress starts to sag, it can seriously disrupt your sleep, but the GhostBed maintains its shape for years—regardless of how much weight it holds each night.
This model is 30% off during the brand's Memorial Day sale, meaning a queen size will cost you less than $1,000.
11. Most Affordable: Tuft & Needle
Sleep is absolutely integral to our overall health, so getting a new mattress is a serious investment. Tuft & Needle strives to create high-quality mattresses that'll help you sleep soundly without costing you a fortune. What we love about the brand's Original mattress is its double layer of plush foam, which provides a comfortable surface that can adapt to any sleep position.
When you apply Tuft & Needle's 15% Memorial Day savings, this mattress becomes a real steal.
12. Best Luxury Mattress: Tempur-Pedic
Tempur-Pedic also wants you to save big this Memorial Day. The brand's Tempur-Adapt bed, which marries lasting support and lush comfort, is now $200 off.
This memory foam mattress appeals to a variety of sleepers and features a cool-to-the-touch cover for those of us who tend to run hot. Along with a discounted bed, Tempur-Pedic offers free white-glove delivery with every mattress order.
Quick tips for shopping Memorial Day mattress sales
Most mattress brands' Memorial Day discounts and bundles start a few weeks before the actual holiday, so there's no reason to wait until the end of May to add items to your virtual cart. Some companies also have limited quantities of certain products, so it's better to be ahead of the curve.
Know your preferences
In order to cut through the noise, it's helpful to narrow down your preferences before you start shopping. If you've already zoned in on your comfort and budget requirements, you're better equipped to find a mattress that checks all of your boxes.
Do your research
Before you wade into the Memorial Day sale frenzy, look up the different types of beds that are available. One of the best things you can do is scroll through customer reviews to see what other sleepers' experiences with a particular mattress have been like.
Read the fine print
Don't click "Place Order" until you've read through a company's warranty agreement and trial period/return policy. Most online mattresses come with a trial period of 100 days or more so that you can test out the bed for yourself. If it doesn't suit your needs, you're able to return it for free. As for warranties, the industry standard for mattresses is typically 10 years, but some brands offer lifetime guarantees.
