Memorial Day mattress sales 2023: the weekend starts here

The Memorial Day mattress sales start here. This weekend is one of the best times of the year to buy a new bed, as all the leading sleep brands have launched their Memorial Day sales with some spectacularly low prices. If you’re in the market for one of the best mattresses, we can direct you the sweetest deals here.

We’re keen observers of the world of mattresses here at TechRadar; we test mattresses just about every day and we keep a close eye on all the current mattress sales, which means we know a real bargain when we see one. Some brands are throwing everything at Memorial Day with near-Black Friday pricing, while others aren’t quite so generous; we’re here to point you at the best offers, and we’ll let you know if a good-looking deal is actually a bit ho-hum.

We’ve highlighted the best deals here, and you’ll find great Memorial Day mattress sales from brands including Saatva, Casper, Purple and DreamCloud. Some of these companies don’t run sales the whole time, so if, for example, you’ve had an eye on a Casper or Purple mattress, now’s the time to buy. And we’d definitely recommend buying now rather than waiting for Memorial Day itself; while we can’t guarantee there won’t be any unexpected flash sales with even bigger discounts on Monday, in most cases the prices you see here are going to stay that way, so you’d be better off getting in ahead of the crowds.

We’ll be keeping this page updated with the latest deals as we spot them, so whether you’re after a memory foam mattress, a hybrid, an organic mattress or even a mattress topper, you’ll be able to find what you need, fast.

Read on to learn everything you need to know about this year’s Memorial Day mattress sale.

Our pick of the best Memorial Day mattress deals

Saatva Classic mattress: from $995 at Saatva
The luxury innerspring Saatva Classic sits at the top of our best mattress guide and with good reason: it’s an excellently comfortable and supportive bed that’s available in two height options and three choices of firmness; our Saatva Classic mattress review can give you all the facts. The Saatva Memorial Day sale applies a sliding scale of discounts when you spend over $1,000 (which means there’s no discount on a twin size Classic), but for the best saving you should use this Saatva coupon, which takes $375 off orders over $1,000. It beats the standard sale  on all sizes and gets you a queen size for just $1,620; that’s not the cheapest we’ve seen it this year, but it’s pretty close.View Deal

The Casper mattress: was $595 now from $476 at Casper
Casper sales don’t come along very often, but for Memorial Day it’s taking 20% off all mattresses (as well as pillows and sheets). This includes its brand new The Casper all-foam mattress, which was already an affordable option and is now even more so. With 20% off, a queen size is reduced to an extremely reasonable $796, with free delivery, a 100-night trial and a 10-year warranty.View Deal

Tempur-Adapt mattress: was $1,699 now from $1,499 at Tempur-Pedic
Tempur-Pedic is one of the rare breed of sleep brands that doesn’t have a sale running the whole time, but it’s hitting the Memorial Day sale hard. There’s $200 off the Tempur-Adapt, which in our Tempur-Adapt mattress review we found to deliver exceptional support, pressure relief and motion isolation; this discount brings a queen size down to $1,999. There’s also $300 off the cooling Tempur-Breeze, as well as 30% off its cheapest model, the Tempur-Cloud, when you use the CLOUD30 Tempur-Pedic promo code.View Deal

Purple Restore mattress: was $1,845 now from $1,645 at Purple
Purple is another company that doesn’t have sales happening 24/7, although you can often find discounts across a selection of its mattresses. Purple’s Memorial Day sale has just launched with discounts across the range and some updated mattresses; we’d direct you to the new Purple Restore mattress (It appears to be a new name and new design for the Purple Hybrid mattress, which you can still get, with $300 off). There’s $200 off all sizes, which gets you the queen size for $2,099.View Deal

The DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: was $799 now from $499 at DreamCloud
The DreamCloud is one of the best hybrid mattresses around, and it delivers lots of luxury features at a surprisingly affordable price; our DreamCloud mattress review can tell you why it’s such a winner. DreamCloud has already launched its Memorial Day sale and is taking 40% off its prices in what it calls its biggest offer ever, bringing the price of a queen size down to just $799 – a lot cheaper than the comparable Saatva Classic, although we’d note that unlike with previous sales there’s no free bedding included with this one.View Deal

Avocado Latex Mattress: was $2,399 now from $1,679 at Avocado
Avocado’s Memorial Day sale is live and it’s mostly pretty standard: 10% off mattresses with the HONOR discount code. However, this sale on the Avocado Latex Mattress is definitely worth a look if you want an eco-friendly step up from memory foam. This hand-crafted organic mattress is great for comfort and motion isolation, with just the right amount of bounce. It’s available in a final sale for $2,099 in a queen size; that’s $900 off, but move fast as this is a clearance sale, so stock won’t last forever.View Deal

Memorial Day mattress sales: memory foam

Cocoon by Sealy Chill Memory Foam mattress: was $619 now from $399 + free bedding at Cocoon by Sealy
We’re all used to seeing prices creep up at the moment, but impressively his 10-inch medium-firm memory foam mattress is actually cheaper now than it was in last year’s Memorial Day mattress sale. You’ll find the Cocoon by Sealy Chill mattress in our best memory foam mattress and best cooling mattress guides. Its cover is made from phase-change material to regulate your temperature as you sleep, making it an excellent budget option for hot sleepers. A queen size costs the same as the Nectar ($699) and you get free pillows and sheets included.View Deal

Nectar Memory Foam Mattress: was $599 now from $359 at Nectar
Nectar’s entry-level full foam mattress is already excellent value — and early Memorial Day sales are sweetening the deal with 33% off everything. That brings the price of a queen down to $699 (from $1,049), and while this is actually standard Nectar pricing, it’s well below the average price you’d pay for this size mattress at most other brands. Need convincing that this lower mid-range memory foam mattress is legit? We sang its praises in our Nectar Mattress review for exceptional pressure relief and good temperature regulation. You get a full year to try it at home, as well, with an industry-leading forever warranty to back your purchase.View Deal

Saatva Loom & Leaf: was $1,195 now from $820 at Saatva
This luxurious foam-only bed from Saatva delivers top-notch pressure relief for back ache and sort joints, and its gel-infused foam stops it getting too warm. It’s reduced in the Saatva Memorial Day sale, but right now we’d advise using this voucher code for a better discount; it’ll get you a queen size for $2,020.View Deal

GhostBed Luxe Mattress: was $2,595 now from $1,298 + free pillows at GhostBed
Side sleepers with a tendency to get hot at night would do well to check out the GhostBed Luxe. It’s a 13-inch all-foam mattress with seven layers bringing the cooling and comfort, and while we think it’s just a bit too flush for heavier sleepers as well as back and stomach sleepers, others will appreciate its cloud-like feel. There’s 50% off in the GhostBed Memorial Day sale, and a queen is reduced to $1,598 with two free pillows worth $219 included.View Deal

Siena Memory Foam Mattress: was $499 now from $199 at Siena Sleep
The medium-firm Siena Memory Foam Mattress is a good budget option for your bedroom or for upgrading a guest room. It’s 10 inches tall, an average height for budget boxed mattresses, and uses gel memory foam to boost airflow. There’s also motion-reducing foam to isolate motion from your partner during sleep, with contouring memory foam to give you both a relaxing, body-hug feel. A queen size is down to $399 (was $699) in this year’s Siena Memorial Day mattress sale; you’ll get 180 nights to trial it too, which is the same trial length as luxury brands such as Saatva. View Deal

Bear Original Mattress: was $748 now from $487 + free accessories at Bear Mattress
Bear Mattress has a 35% off sitewide sale ongoing for Memorial Day, and it’s one of the biggest discounts we’ve seen. The Bear Original is the brand’s most affordable cooling mattress, and it’s at the best price we’ve seen for it in over six months. The price of a queen has dropped from $998 to $649, while a twin is just $487. Add to that a free sleep bundle including pillows, sheet set and mattress protector, and you have an outstanding value for money. Memory foam mattresses are prone for trapping heat, but the Bear Original’s cooling graphite-gel memory foam will keep you comfortable and well-supported all night long. View Deal

Tempur-Cloud Mattress: was $1,699 now from $1,189.30 at Tempur-Pedic
The Tempur-Pedic Memorial Day Sale offers a rare 30% discount for its budget-friendly Tempur-Cloud full-foam mattress. That brings the price of a queen to $1,399.30 (was $1,999). Made with NASA-developed Tempur Material, you’ll experience all-body contouring and support. Low motion transfer means it’s a suitable choice for co-sleepers, too.View Deal

Nectar Premier Copper Mattress: was $1,499 now from $999 at Nectar
The original Nectar mattress does an admirable job of regulating temperature, but the Premier Copper is your best bet if you’re a hot sleeper who likes the cushioning hug of memory foam. A copper-woven cover plus phase-change-infused cooling foam will leave you comfortably cool and well-supported. Bring home a queen on sale for $1,299 (reg. $1,949). A lifetime warranty applies, and you’ll have a full year to test it out at home.View Deal

Brooklyn Dreamfoam Essential: from $274 $205.50 at Brooklyn Bedding
Cooling mattresses can cost thousands, but Brooklyn’s Dreamfoam Essential bucks that trend by offering a queen size from $393 (was $524). Naturally you won’t get advanced cooling features at this price; the Dreamfoam Essential has an open-cell foam design to increase airflow and dissipate heat, which means heat shouldn’t collect in the mattress and add to your overheating. There’s 25% off all mattresses in the Brooklyn Bedding Memorial Day sale, and we think this is an excellent deal on an all-foam bed that can be customised (in terms of height) to suit different sleep positions. You’ll get free shipping, a 120-night trial and a 10-year warranty too. View Deal

Brentwood Home Cypress Memory Foam Mattress: from $579 $521.10 at Brentwood Home
This is a good Memorial Day mattress sale for people dealing with hot flashes and night sweats and who need a good quality yet cheap mattress to wick away heat and sweat. The Brentwood Home Cypress is infused with charcoal, a natural material known for its ability to control moisture levels and dissipate heat, and it’ll give you the contouring comfort and pressure relief of a memory foam mattress, helping you to sleep comfier and cooler. Use the discount code HONOR at checkout to get 10% off, with a queen size priced from $719.10 (was $799). You’ll get a year’s risk-free trial too.View Deal

Sleep Number 360 iLE smart bed: was $4,899 now from $2,449.50 at Sleep Number
If all these memory foam mattresses seem a little bit too cheap for you, this smart option from Sleep Number is worth a look. it features adjustable comfort and firmness on each side, so both you and your partner can get that just-right feel, and it’ll respond you your movements and automatically adjust its firmness to get things absolutely perfect. A queen size is 50% off in the Sleep Number Memorial Day sale, bringing the price down to $2749.50.View Deal

Memorial Day mattress sales: hybrids

Saatva Classic mattress: from $995 – save $375 when you spend $1,000
This luxury innerspring hybrid is extremely comfortable and supportive for all sleeping positions. Better yet, it comes in three firmness levels plus two heights so you can select the combo that best suits your preferences. The Saatva Classic has also been given the Seal of Approval from the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations. In other words, if you suffer from back pain, you’ll want to check this mattress out — especially now, since we’ve teamed up with Saatva to offer a massive $375 discount on the Classic when you spend $1,000. That drops the price of a queen from $1,995 to to $1,620, which is $75 cheaper than the company’s official Memorial Day mattress sale price.View Deal

The Allswell Mattress: was $227 now from $182 at Allswell Home
The Allswell Mattress is, let’s face it, cheap, but don’t let that put you off. It designed to land on the softer side of medium firm, and based on our experience of testing mattresses with a similar firmness, we feel it would best suit lighter to average weight bodies, especially side sleepers. It’s infused with charcoal to control moisture levels and regulate heat, and copper gel-infused foam helps with cooling too. In the Allswell Memorial Day sale you can save 20% with the code BIGDEAL, bringing the price of a queen down to $269.60. View Deal

Purple Restore mattress: was $1,845 now from $1,645 at Purple

When is Memorial Day 2023?

Memorial Day happens on the last Monday in May, so Memorial Day 2023 will roll around on Monday 29 May. It’s a bank holiday and a federal holiday, and many retailers – both online and in-store – take the opportunity to launch sales that can save you money on a wide range of products – including mattresses.

What are the Memorial Day mattress sales?

While many mattress companies have sales running most of the year – which effectively means that their sale pricing is their standard pricing – they also tend to get involved in the big annual sales events such as Presidents’ Day, Labor Day and Memorial day, and break out bigger discounts than you’ll see the rest of the year.

Those savings aren’t always the same though – some brands and retailers offer either money off or free bedding, while others offer both. The latter are usually the best deals for sheer value for money, depending on the cost of the bed you are looking at.

Is Memorial Day a good time to buy a mattress?

We’ve tracked mattress deals and sales for a good few years, and we’ve pinpointed the best times of year to pick up your perfect mattress for the least money. The Black Friday mattress deals are usually where you’ll get the lowest mattress prices as well as free bedding gifts, and these roll over into Cyber Monday mattress deals

Beyond these events, the Presidents’ Day mattress sales in February and the Memorial Day mattress sales in May can be relied on to deliver prices that are almost as low. That’s partly because sleep brands tend to introduce new models in the spring, which means having to clear older stock; however our research and trend analysis of the past few years also indicates that prices tend to rise over the summer months before falling again in time for Labor Day in September. 

So if you want or need a new mattress and you’ve missed out on all the major shopping events so far, the 2023 Memorial Day mattress sales are your next big chance to save on better sleep.

Where to find the best Memorial Day mattress sales

If previous Memorial Day mattress sales are anything to go by, we’ll see all the leading mattress brands launching offers throughout May. Some of them will be worth grabbing, but others will be only slightly more generous than the evergreen deals many companies run most of the year.

So that you know whether you’re getting a good deal or not, we’ll be updating this 2023 Memorial Day mattress sales guide regularly and highlighting the deals that we believe are worth buying. We’ll keep you informed about:

  • The standard price (the MSRP)
  • The sale price
  • How much you’re saving
  • How this compares to regular deals from the brand
  • Any free gifts you’re entitled to

One thing you really need to look out for when you buy a new mattress is a long trial period so that you can test it at home and return it if it doesn’t live up to expectations. On average it takes at least 30 nights to adjust to a new bed, and thankfully most brands give you much more than that; generally at least 100 nights. Most will allow you to return an unwanted mattress for free, but some will charge you; we’ll let you know if that’s the case.

Speaking of which, you should also check that the brand has published a clear returns policy on its website or has one available for you to read in-store, as you need to be aware of any small print. For example, some request that you use a mattress protector on your mattress during the trial period to keep it safe from spills and stains. If you don’t use one, you may not be able to return it if you change your mind. 

Brands and retailers we know and trust include Avocado Green, Casper, Cocoon by Sealy, DreamCloud, GhostBed, Helix Sleep, Leesa, Mattress Firm, Purple, Nectar Sleep, Saatva, and Tempur-Pedic, but there are plenty of others to consider on Memorial Day.

Are mattress toppers and bedding on sale too?

Yes, you can normally find a wide range of bedding in the Memorial Day mattress sale. Many of the best mattress toppers are discounted and these are an instant way to upgrade the comfort of your existing bed if you don’t have the budget for a new mattress.

Other bedding you’ll find in the sales include bed sheets, mattress protectors, comforters, weighted blankets and some of the best pillows for comfier sleep. In recent years, we’ve seen brands and retailers bundle in some of these bedding items as free gifts when you purchase a mattress. Top brands for giving you free premium bedding include Awara, DreamCloud, Cocoon by Sealy, Helix Sleep, and Nectar Sleep.

The Memorial Day mattress sales are also a good time to nab bedding that isn’t normally discounted. For example, luxury sleep brand Saatva has been known to offer a sitewide discount ranging from 12-15%, and that can be used on its weighted blankets, pillows, toppers, sheets and more. That said, a recent Saatva mattress sale offered this exact same discount, so we’re hoping for a larger saving from the brand in May.

What to look for in a Memorial Day mattress sale

We’ve been reporting on Memorial Day mattress deals for a few years now, and there are two things in particular – in addition to free shipping – that we recommend you look for before spending a dime:

Last year’s best Memorial Day mattress sales

Last year’s Memorial Day mattress sales saw impressive discounts on memory foam, hybrid and organic mattresses from all the leading sleep brands. Highlights included:

While many sleep brands have put prices up since last year, early indicators suggest that some of this year’s Memorial Day sales could bring prices down close to (and even lower than) last year’s deals. Watch this space as we’ll be bringing you the latest sales as they happen.
