Good mattress sales come around only a couple of times a year — and one of those times is Memorial Day, a day in which we honor our fallen military heroes and remember their sacrifices for our country. The long Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, and shopping the sales is a time-honored tradition (along with dusting off our white shoes).
If you have a guest room in need of a mattress, or it’s time to replace your own (maybe you’re ready to upgrade from a Queen to a King?), this weekend is the perfect time to get on it. With great deals from some of our favorite retailers, you’ll save hundreds of dollars — and in some cases, score a bundle of free bedding as well!
Sleep is one of the most important factors in your health. Make sure you’re getting the best rest possible by investing in a high-quality mattress! The five below are not only on sale, they’re top of the line, well-reviewed mattresses that will stand the test of time.

- $150 off Memory Foam mattresses
- $200 off Hybrid mattresses
- 2 free pillows with mattress purchase
Do you suffer from chronic back pain? The culprit could be your mattress! Luckily, the folks at Layla Sleep have slashed the price of their Hybrid Mattress by $200 for the holiday weekend. (Prices start at $999.) This mattress combines the best elements of three types of mattresses: memory foam, coil, and gel. The result is a mattress that works for all types of sleepers, taking the pressure off of joints and easing aches and pains while also keeping you cool and fending off odors and bacterial growth. Even better, when you order the Layla Hybrid by May 29, you’ll also get two free Layla Memory Foam pillows!
“This Layla Hybrid is amazing. I can’t decide which side I like better, the firm side is so comfortable and the soft side is heavenly. It’s so great having two sleep options — I switch sides every couple of weeks because I want the best of both worlds. So happy with my purchase,” writes one well-rested buyer.
- Free sheet set (regularly $150)
- 2 free premium pillows (regularly $150)
- Free mattress protector (regularly $99)
When you buy any Nectar mattress this weekend, you’ll get a bundle of free extras to go with it: pillows, sheets, and a mattress protector. Not sure which mattress to choose? We suggest their memory foam option, which you can sleep on for up to a full year and send back if you’re not satisfied. One of the things we love about this premium mattress (priced from $499), besides the way it hugs your body while also keeping you comfortably cool, is that it’s flexible enough to sit on an adjustable bed base (from $849) and let you sit up, elevate your legs, or otherwise create the perfect haven for rest. All you’ll need then is the right headboard for your adjustable bed!
“I love this mattress, and I’m really picky. This is the most comfortable mattress I have ever owned. A friend of mine who is a Tempur-Pedic snob slept on this mattress and was so impressed, she’s going to buy one for her guest room. I can’t tell you enough how wonderful this mattress is … I will be buying another for my guest room very soon!” raves one reviewer.
- 20 percent off, site-wide
Parachute doesn’t offer sales very often, so when they do, it’s a can’t-miss event. This Memorial Day weekend, they’re offering 20 percent off all purchases — which makes it the perfect time to take the plunge and order what they call “The Mattress.” Priced starting at $1,299, it’s made from layers of pure New Zealand wool and pocketed steel coils, tufted expertly together to offer firm support in the middle and a softer feel at the head and foot of the bed. This provides support where you need it most, along with pressure point relief and ideal spine alignment.
It’s also crafted from entirely recyclable, non-toxic, and eco-friendly materials, from tempered steel to organic cotton. Free from foams, adhesives, petrochemicals, chemical flame retardants, each element of this mattress was chosen with sustainability in mind — so you can rest easy knowing your purchase is as good for the Earth as it is for you.
“We hemmed and hawed over which mattress to go with for months, and ultimately the construction and quality of materials tipped us toward Parachute. Very happy with our decision!” writes one reviewer.
- $200 off Leesa Original mattresses
- $300 off Leesa Hybrid mattresses
- $400 off Leesa Legend mattresses
Leesa offers mattresses at three different price points, and you’ll save the most when you buy the best: Now through June 5, they’re offering $400 off the Leesa Legend, their most luxurious mattress. Two layers of springs — pocket springs for edge support and microcoils for targeted hip and shoulder support — guarantee a comfortable night’s sleep, and a top layer of foam offers just the right level of bounce versus “hug.” This mattress, which starts at $1,449, also comes with its own mattress cover, made from a blend of organic cotton, Merino wool, and fiber from recycled water bottles.
“I sleep so well on this mattress. This is the first mattress in years I haven’t had to get a super thick mattress pad — and those still weren’t soft enough. I’m heavy and a side sleeper, and I don’t wake up with shoulder pain or numb fingers and hands any more,” writes one happy customer.
- $100 off + 2 Dream pillows on orders up to $1,249 (use code MDWS100)
- $150 off + 2 Dream pillows on orders from $1,250-$1,749 (use code MDWS150)
- $200 off + 2 Dream pillows on orders over $1,750 (use code MDWS200)
If an organic mattress is important to you, you’ll love the Birch Natural Mattress (starting at $1,049). Certified organic and guaranteed to be free of polyurethane based foams and harsh chemicals, this breathable mattress is sustainably sourced and crafted with steel coils, natural wool fibers, and rainforest-friendly latex. Six layers, from wool batting on the top to the organic cotton cover, ensure you’ll stay comfortable and cool, while your weight is supported and the contours of the mattress provide pressure relief.
“I wanted an organic, all natural mattress and my husband wanted coils and no latex stink. This mattress checked all of our requirements. It’s so comfortable we’re thinking of buying another for the guest room!” wrote one satisfied customer.
