You can get up to 40% off mattresses from mattress giant Nectar. I consider Nectar mattresses generally affordable compared to other brands, so up to 40% off is hard to beat. If you love memory foam, look no further than Nectar’s slow-responding memory foam beds. 

You can get the flagship memory foam Nectar mattress for $649 instead of $1,099 or the hybrid version for only $799. Even higher-tier beds from Nectar are on sale. The memory foam Nectar Premier mattress is only $949 for Memorial Day.

Saatva’s Early Access mattress sale is up to $600 off mattresses. Saatva makes some of the most high-quality luxury mattresses. That means they’re also more expensive than other options. 

The more expensive the mattress, the more you’ll get off with this sale. For example, the Saatva Classic mattress, which retails for $2,095, is available for $1,795. That’s $300 off. It’s not the biggest sale you’ll see, but Saatva offers a level of luxury that you can’t get anywhere else.

You can get 30% off all of Casper’s mattresses right now, making it a great chance to snag one of Casper’s newest beds for less. This includes The One for $870, Dream for $1,305 and Snow for $1,745. Casper pillows and bedding are also included in this sale at 10%, and bundles are 35% off.

Memorial Day mattress and base deals 

If you're in need of a new mattress, there's a high chance you're looking for a new base too. These mattress offers include discounts on a base as well. Some of them even offer a base for free when you purchase a mattress.

Mattress Firm

During Mattress Firm's Memorial Day sale, which lasts until June 11, you can save up to $700 on select top brands, including Serta, Purple, Beautyrest and more. Not only that, but you can score a free adjustable base with your purchase (up to a $499 value) if you apply the code ELEVATE at checkout and get an extra 25% off with the code HOLIDAY.

You can get up to $800 off mattresses and bases during Purple’s Memorial Day mattress sale. Savings will depend on the mattress you’re interested in. The Purple Restore bed, our pick for the best hybrid mattress, is $300 off and $400 off if you also buy the adjustable frame. The higher-priced beds will have a higher discount, like the Purple Rejuvenate, which you can get for $4,995. 

You can’t get the uniqueness of the Purple Grid anywhere else. That means that Purple beds are pretty expensive. So it’s nice to see a couple hundred off the top of that high price tag.

Best Memorial Day sitewide mattress deals

These websites all have offers that are valid throughout the entire site. There are no minimum or specific requirements you need to meet to be eligible for the discount. Some of these deals are only valid with a promo code.

Bear is running a 35% off sitewide sale including 40% off mattresses with code MD4TY for Memorial Day, which will bring the cost of the Bear Original mattress down to only $649. This is one of the cheapest beds you can get online. The Elite Hybrid, Bear’s most luxurious hybrid bed, is $1,499 instead of $2,305.

If 35% off isn’t enough, you also get two free pillows, sheets and a bed protector when you buy a mattress during Memorial Day. That’s a $400 value in sleep accessories. It’s one of the more generous sales going on right now.

Budget shoppers will be glad to know that the budget beds from Dreamfoam are also on sale during Memorial Day. When testing, we were surprised by the solid quality of the Dreamfoam Doze mattress because the price was so low.

Right now, you can get Dreamfoam mattresses for 30% off when you use the code MEMORIAL30. With this sale, the Dreamfoam Doze mattress is only $168 for a queen, and the Dreamfoam Hybrid is only $559.30. The sale extends across the site, so you can snag sleep essentials like pillows, sheets and bases.

Dreamfoam's Memorial Day sale ends May 27, today.

Memorial Day mattress deals with pillows

These deals not only offer discounts on mattresses but come with free pillows as well.

For Memorial Day, Helix is offering 25% off everything across the site and 30% off Luxe and Elite Models, which are the higher-tier beds from Helix. You’ll also get two free pillows with your purchase. 

Helix does beds differently from other brands. The Helix design targets specific sleeping preferences, with some of the most high-quality mattresses at affordable pricing. Our selection of the best mattress for plus-sized sleepers, Helix Plus, is on sale for $1,099. 

The 25% off is auto-applied when you check out, but you’ll need to use the code MEMDAY30 to get that extra 5% on Luxe and Elite beds.

For Memorial Day, Sleep Number is running several sales, including 50% off the iLE smart bed, 30% off the i8 smart bed, 30% off furniture and BOGO 50% off pillows and sheets. It’s no secret I’m a fan of Sleep Number bed accessories. I’ve recently been sleeping on the True Temp sheet set, and they’re both comfortable and cool. If you’ve been thinking about buying, now is a good time. 

Additionally, Sleep Number offers a Special Hero Discount for military members, veterans, educators, first responders and healthcare workers. The Special Hero Discount is an extra 5 to 10% off on smart beds and bases until June 2.

DreamCloud continues to offer some of the most generous mattress sales on the market. Most brands average between 25% and 35% off. DreamCloud’s Memorial Day mattress sale is up to 50% off beds. For beds that are as high quality and comfortable as DreamCloud, I’d say this is one of the best deals going on right now. 

That means you can get the DreamCloud Hybrid mattress for $665 and the DreamCloud Premier for $949. Premium hybrid mattresses for under $1,000 are few and far between.

Is Memorial Day a good time to buy a mattress?

Memorial Day is one of the biggest times of the year for mattress discounts. The average sale will be between 20% and 35%, although some brands like DreamCloud offer higher sales. If you've been researching beds and seriously considering buying one, Memorial Day is one of the best times to take the plunge. 

How much should you spend on a good bed?

As with anything, the cost of a bed depends on what it's made of, the size and the bed's durability. There's no one number that you shouldn't cross or go below; it depends on what you want and your budget. 

The average cost of an online mattress is between $800 and $1,200. There are extremely comfortable and quality mattresses at every price. You can get budget mattresses like the Dreamfoam Doze for under $500 or luxury beds that cost well over $2,500. 

That's why it's so important to define your budget. Holidays like Memorial Day are also a good way to offset the cost and get higher-quality beds for less. 

How we choose the best Memorial Day Mattress deals

Many of us here at CNET have covered shopping events for over five years, including Black Friday, Prime Day, Memorial Day and countless other shopping events. We've gotten very good at weeding out scams and superficial deals so you see only the best offers from all over. 

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing a mattress deal to show you. We have a team of sleep experts who have tested over 200 mattresses.

Real discounts mean exactly that. We look at the price history for that product to make sure no brands are inflating prices to make the discount seem more substantial than it is.Quality reviews and testing are important for any product, but especially for a mattress. If you're unhappy the first time you use it, the discount wasn't really worthwhile. Remaining sale time is a huge part of our vetting process. If a deal seems like it will only be around for a short while or will only be available for the remaining stock, we'll let you know upfront so you don't come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.
