How to get the best Memorial Day mattress deals

Research early

Finding a mattress that’s a good fit for your sleep preferences can be a long process, so the earlier you start, the more likely you are to find a mattress that’s right for you. If you prefer to test a mattress in person before buying online, check whether any local stores carry the brands and models you’re interested in. If so, you can try your top choices in person to ensure they’re comfortable for you, then purchase them online during a sales event. It’s important to consider your body type, preferred sleep position, and whether you’re sleeping alone or with a partner.

Buy online

Shopping online can be a great way to find the best product for your needs at the best price. Brick-and-mortar stores typically only carry a small selection of mattress brands and models, which doesn’t give you many options to choose from, and most stores don’t include sleep trials.

If your mattress of choice is unavailable in-store, most mattresses on this list offer trial periods of 100 days or more. This allows you to test the mattress in the comfort of your own home and decide if it’s the right one for you. When you shop online, you have access to hundreds of models and brands with varying levels of firmness, so you can find the best fit for your preferences.

Bottom line 

Mattresses are an expensive investment, so planning to make a purchase during a popular holiday weekend is a good strategy to save money. When shopping for your mattress, you should consider the type of sleeper you are (back, side, stomach, or combination), your personal preferences, and your budget. Our Reviews Team has personally tested every mattress we featured on our list above, so you can decide which mattress is best for your unique sleep needs.

Frequently asked questions

Holiday weekends are some of the best times to buy a new mattress, and Memorial Day is no exception. Many mattress brands lower their prices by at least 25% and often include free sleep accessories, like pillows and sheets, or offer a special bundle deal with mattresses and base pairings.

Many Memorial Day mattress sales run from May 1 through the holiday weekend or sometimes through the following weekend into the first days of June. Other brands, like Brooklyn Bedding, have a preview sale (starting before Memorial Day Weekend), a weekend sale (during the holiday weekend), and an extended sale (after the holiday weekend ends). Usually, the best discounts are on the holiday weekend itself.

Our research shows that Memorial Day mattress sales are better online than in person. Since they also offer free shipping, it’s often easier and cheaper to deliver the mattress to your house using an online store instead of an in-person one.
