Swaddle yourself up ahead of freezing January temps, and thank us later!

Birch: Score a new sustainable mattress from Birch for $400 off as a post-holiday treat, plus some free Eco-Rest pillows where that came from.  

Aviya: Everyone’s having trouble knowing what day and month it is, so it’s maybe not so surprising that Aviya’s Black Friday sale is still somehow going strong even today. Anyhow, we’re not complaining: The brand’s superlative hybrid mattresses are still marked down by $200 if you’re jonesing to upgrade your bed.

Eight Sleep: Eight Sleep’s ultra-techy, adjustable, sleep-tracking Pod 3 mattress can be yours for $250 less during the holiday season, and while you’re at it, throw in the cover for the mattress (which is also $100 off right now).

Plus, An In-Depth Look at Some of Our Favorite Mattresses on Sale

Helix Midnight Luxe Hybrid mattress

$2,099$1,799

GQ staffers’ all-around favorite mattress is on sale. In celebration of the holiday, Helix is offering a tiered promotion, where you can save up to $450 depending on how much you’re shelling out. The Luxe Hybrid—plus a complimentary set of the company’s dreamy pillows—can be yours for $200 off.

Saatva classic luxury firm mattress

$1,995$1,696

Saatva’s hybrid mattresses are one of our favorites for luxurious medium-firm comfort and the company is currently offering up to 15% off orders over $1,000 across the site. 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

$1,299$1,099

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

$2,895$2,450

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 taking up to $600 off its mattresses, 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.

Aviya mattress

$1,249$1,049

Aviya’s mattresses (which scooped a Home Award this 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

$1,195$956

Floyd’s mattress, designed to fit squarely on top of its low-slung bed frames, earned a Home Award this 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

$3,395$3,145
Eight Sleep

Eight Sleep’s Pod Pro mattress won a Fitness Award last year 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 $250 less than usual. 

Awara Hybrid mattress

$1,898$1,099

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

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 year-end sale, which is offering up to $500 off legacy mattresses like this one. 

Brooklyn Bedding Plank mattress

$1,332$999
Brooklyn Bedding

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 WINTER25. 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

$1,699$1,099
Cocoon by Sealy

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 Cyber Monday, the Cocoon Chill Hybrid is 35% off and comes with a free set of pillows and sheets.

DreamCloud hybrid mattress

$1,798$899
DreamCloud

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

Ahead of the New Year, Zinus is taking 10% off its entire site, from the brand’s popular living room furniture to its also-popular outdoor patio sets. 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. 


7 More Mattress Deals Worth Checking Out

Zoma mattress

$1,149$999

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

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

$1,732$1,213
Bear Mattress

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 30% off (as part of the brand’s up to 50% off December Deals sale).

Nolah Signature 12 mattress

$1,599$1,119
Nolah Mattress

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

$1,849$1,449

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 $400 less than usual during its holiday sale, plus throwing in two free pillows!

Layla Sleep Hybrid mattress

$1,699$1,499
Layla Sleep

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

$4,249$2,999
Plush Beds

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.
