Saatva classic luxury firm mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 365-day trial, lifetime warranty
Firmness Level: Medium Firm
Type: Hybrid foam and innerspring coils

Saatva’s hybrid mattresses are some of our favorites for luxurious medium-firm comfort, and right now the company is offering tiered savings, so spend more, save more. Our tester called this bed a stylish, “dreamy combination of cushion and support,” one that offered a comfortable surface for his back and sides no matter what sleep position he chose. Plus, its lifetime warranty is nothing to sneeze at since you are, y’know, making a long-term investment. 

Leesa Original mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-day trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium
Type: Foam

Leesa, one of our favorite mattress brands, is offering up to $700 off select mattresses, with some bedding and cushion deals in the mix, too. We’d recommend either the best-of-both-worlds Hybrid Mattress, or the Leesa Original, our favorite plushy, supportive option in the $1,000-range. 

Casper Wave mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial, 10-year limited warranty
Firmness Level: Firm to Medium-Firm
Type: Foam

Casper is nearly always having some kind of sale, but that doesn’t mean you should hold out on taking advantage of its primo year-end mattress deals if you’re in the market for a cushier bed for your poor back. Right now, the brand is letting subscribers (or anyone who’s ever given the brand their email address) 20% off, plus marking down a bunch of sleek sleep accessories in its clearance bin. After our most recent round of testing, the Wave remains our pick for one of the best mattresses out there for back and side sleepers.

Avocado Green mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: One-year trial period, 25-year warranty 
Firmness Level: Medium Firm 
Type: Foam and innerspring coils hybrid

The Green mattress from Avocado is as basic as a hybrid mattress can get, but you typically shop at Avocado for its environmental benefits–its latex foam is organically certified, as is the cotton and wool cover that esconces it. These mattresses are not cheap, but for Presidents’ Day, the whole website is 10% off.

Aviya mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-day trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium to Medium-Firm
Type: Hybrid foam and innerspring coils

Aviya’s mattresses (which scooped a Home Award last year) line the interiors of swanky hotel chains the world over, and are well-known for being solidly middle-of-the-road plush—and plenty supportive. Now’s your chance to transform your bedroom into a luxury resort courtesy of the brand’s promotion, which will let you score mattresses for $200 off in exchange for your precious email information. 

Floyd mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 30-day trial, No warranty
Firmness Level: Medium-Firm to Firm
Type: Hybrid foam and innerspring coils

Floyd’s mattress, designed to fit squarely on top of its low-slung bed frames, earned a Home Award last year for its not-too-squishy, not-too-firm hybrid design. A layer of breathable, open-cell memory foam and pocketed coils hit the perfect medium, all wrapped up in a cooling Tencel cover to ward off night sweats. Right now, you can score one for a cool 20% off, no code necessary. 

Eight Sleep Pod 3 mattress

Eight Sleep

Warranty/Guarantee: 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium Firm
Type: Foam

Eight Sleep’s Pod Pro mattress has earned a Fitness Award for its state-of-the-art advancements, which include the ability to track your sleep metrics down to the last engrossing detail. It also gently jostles you awake with literal good vibrations, and offers heating powers that are isolated to each side of the bed (so you can sleep hot while your partner stays cool). Right now, its latest iteration can be yours for $150 less than usual. 

Awara Hybrid mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: One-year trial period, lifetime warranty 
Firmness Level: Medium Firm
Type: Hybrid foam and innerspring coils 

The Awara Hybrid is one of the best supportive mattresses we’ve ever tested. The company makes relatively simple options, without the different sleep zones you’d find in something like the Casper Wave. The result is a mattress that’s a bit more cloud-like—“soft, yet sturdy,” said one tester. Awara’s current promotion drops the price of a queen-sized mattress by $300 and sweetens the pot with $499 worth of other bedding gear. Plus, the company says they’ll plant 10 trees with every mattress purchased. Pretty good, all around!

Tuft and Needle Original mattress

Tuft and Needle

Warranty/Guarantee: 100-day trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium-firm
Type: Foam

Tuft & Needle’s OG mattress is one of our favorite cheap-ish mattresses (and memory foam options, period) for its double-layered construction that keeps your body supported, but cool. Plus, its slightly firmer surface is a boon for any folks who find foamy mattresses a little too forgiving when it comes to sinkage. Right now, it’s even cheaper at Tuft & Needle’s Prez Day sale, which is offering up to $625 off legacy mattresses like this one (and 30% off everything else).

Brooklyn Bedding Plank mattress

Brooklyn Bedding

Warranty/Guarantee: 120-night trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Firm+
Type: Foam

Not for the faint of heart: Brooklyn Bedding (named after the founder’s daughter, not the NYC borough) is giving shoppers 25% off its firm-leaning mattresses right now with the code PRESDAY25. If you’re hellbent on getting a super-firm mattress option, the Plank is the best of the bunch. The opposite sides of the mattress offer two varying levels of firmness to choose from, but we have to say, sleeping on what is essentially a plank (get it?) really helps with spinal alignment. And if you’re still on the fence, the brand also offers a 120-day free trial so you can test it out first-hand. 

Cocoon by Sealy chill hybrid mattress

Cocoon by Sealy

Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial period, 10-year warranty 
Firmness Level: Medium-firm
Type: Hybrid latex and innerspring coils

Cocoon by Sealy’s chill hybrid mattress is made with hot sleepers in mind, and features a stretch-knit cover that pulls away heat. (We’ve named it our favorite cooling mattress on the market.) For this holiday, the Cocoon Chill Hybrid is 35% off and comes with a free set of pillows and sheets.

DreamCloud hybrid mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: One-year trial period, lifetime warranty 
Firmness Level: Medium Firm 
Type: Foam and innerspring coils hybrid

Our tester gave DreamCloud’s mattress top marks for its bouncy and supportive feel, especially for sleepers looking for a super plush top. In addition to 25% off its mattresses, the brand’s throwing in a bunch of added accessories valued at $599.

Zinus cooling copper hybrid mattress

Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium-soft
Type: Foam and innerspring coils hybrid

Zinus continues to top our list of the best budget mattresses, as a cheaper alternative to the Allswell Hybrid. It has a sinkable top layer that some might find a little too quicksand-like, but our testers still maintain it offers more than enough support. Side sleepers and back sleepers, look no further. It’s currently on sale at Walmart, one of the many retailers that carries the brand, for a cool $150 off. 

9 More Mattress Deals Worth Checking Out

Zoma mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium to Medium-firm
Type: Foam and pocketed coils

Zoma’s four-layered mattresses are made specifically for athletes, and designed with “recovery” in mind. This might not mean very much to you, but it does give the brand cover to bestow each layer of its mattress with a wacky sneaker-tech-esque name. (Triangulex, Reactiv, SUPPORT+, etc.) Reviews of the mattress are generally positive, especially from side-sleepers who weigh less than 200 pounds. Both the company’s all-foam mattress and hybrid mattresses are $150 off right now.

Nectar Sleep original mattress

Nectar Sleep

Warranty/Guarantee: 1-year trial, Forever warranty
Firmness Level: Medium-firm
Type: Foam 

Nectar Sleep is taking 33% off its entire mattress selection, and though we haven’t tested it ourselves, reviewers liken the brand’s cushy original memory foam mattress to a cloud.

Bear Hybrid mattress

Bear Mattress

Warranty/Guarantee: 120-night trial, Lifetime warranty
Firmness Level: Medium to Medium-firm
Type: Copper-gel memory foam and individually encased coils

Bear’s another mattress brand we have’t gotten around to testing yet (these brands are cropping up like mushrooms these days), but its best-selling Hybrid mattress is currently 35% off, and the brand is throwing in $325 worth of sleep accessories.

Nolah Signature 12 mattress

Nolah Mattress

Warranty/Guarantee: 120-night trial, Lifetime warranty
Firmness Level: Medium
Type: Foam

We’ve never slept on a Nolah before, but this upgraded version of its basic mattress comes with options: One side is softer, for side and front sleepers, while the other is firmer, for back sleepers. It’s not like you’re going to flip your mattress regularly to take advantage—you’re probably one or the other—but the something-for-everyone concept means you’ll likely get what you need. Right now, you’ll find it for nearly $500 cheaper than normal (as part of its holiday sale) and you’ll get a pair of squishy pillows in the mix, too.

Birch Natural mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial, 25-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium-firm
Type: Latex and coils

Birch’s mattresses are designed and sold by Helix with an added focus on sustainability. They’re great for anyone who wants a plush mattress made with (somewhat) more eco-friendly materials. Right now, the company is offering its mattresses for 25% off during its holiday sale, plus throwing in two free pillows.

Layla Sleep Hybrid mattress

Layla Sleep

Warranty/Guarantee: 120-night trial, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium-soft
Type: Copper-gel memory foam and coils

Layla Sleep is (mercifully) offering discounts without codes in its ongoing sale. The company’s Hybrid mattress is $200 off, and you can also catch some dreamy savings on other bedding bundles (worth a whopping $1,599).

PlushBeds natural bliss latex mattress

Plush Beds

Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial, lifetime warranty
Firmness Level: Medium to Medium-firm
Type: Latex

As its name would suggest, PlushBed’s lineup of mattresses are satisfyingly…plush. They’re also made with organic materials, and crafted according to centuries-old methods of hand-stitching and hand-tufting. Thankfully, the brand is keeping up with the times with its holiday sale, and it’s packed with genuine steals: a wild $1,250 (!) off its signature queen-sized mattress, along with up to $349 in free bedding. 

Airweave mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial, lifetime warranty
Firmness Level: Firm
Type: “Airfiber,” neither springs nor foam

Made in Japan, Airweave’s mattresses don’t use any springs or foam, just resin-based “Airfiber” that helps distribute weight and support your joints. They’re designed to feel extra firm, akin to sleeping directly on the floor, to help soothe back pain. If that tickles your fancy, now’s the time to take one for a test run during the brand’s $300-off sitewide sale when you use the word “PDAY200” (for mattresses sized up to a queen) and “PDAY300” (for king sizes).  

Purple Original mattress


Warranty/Guarantee: 100-night trial period, 10-year warranty
Firmness Level: Medium
Type: Polymer hybrid

Purple’s beautifully weird mattress is $200 off, and that can be a big enough deal for you to try out the bed we called “an egg crate.” Because Purple uses a proprietary polymer that isn’t foam or a series of springs, you won’t find something like this anywhere else. We found it to be comfortable, but it’s a tad bit softer than other mattresses we’ve slept on. We like that 100-night trial, though, so you can see if you want to go Purple.
