One of the perks of being a Clever editor is that it’s our job to shop. And since we’re not made of money, knowing the best Labor Day mattress sales comes in handy when it’s time for a sleep upgrade. Just as we’re endlessly adding stuff to our shopping carts, we’re also constantly taking note of major discounts, special promos, and 15% off coupons, so that we can snag expensive goods at bargain prices. Since we know you don’t have the hours in your day to document these things (you’ve got a life to live, after all), we’re here to help.
As you may well know, Labor Day is this weekend. And perhaps a lesser known fact: It is a big holiday in the mattress world. This means steep discounts on high-price items, which happens only a few times a year (plus freebies like pillows and sheet sets!). If you’re in the market for a new mattress, now is your chance to grab a deal. We’ve listed a few standout brands running sales below and are always happy to provide recommendations on recommendations from our editors, so you can properly enjoy the best Labor Day mattress sales that retailers are running right now.
We’re sure the cushioning support built into DreamCloud’s mattresses will bring you lots of rest this fall. For the holiday weekend, the brand is offering 40% off all mattresses (and they’ve got options for everyone, from stomach sleepers to side snoozers). The brand offers a 365-night trial, just in case you don’t find the right fit off the bat. It gets better: Buying a mattress unlocks another deal. Snatch up a DreamCloud bedding bundle (cooling pillow, sheet set, and mattress protector) for $129.
Not one but two AD staffers—senior SEO manager Katie Henwood and digital features editor Nick Mafi—have slept soundly on their Nectar mattresses. According to Katie, “This mattress is a dream come true for all kinds of sleepers. It offers extra support without sacrificing comfort, and getting into bed each night is like falling into a cloud.” And right now you can enjoy 33% off everything on the site, from mattresses and bed frames to bedding and pillows.
It’s no secret that Casper makes very good mattresses (not to mention all new beds are backed by a solid sleep trial period and warranty). Right now and until September 12, you can get up to 20% off everything—including $459 off comfy models like the Nova Hybrid. Editor Nora Taylor said of her Nova Hybrid, “If you are a fan of a plush mattress top, I would 100% recommend it. You get to sink into bed but get enough support that your body isn’t thrown out of whack.”
Here’s another great deal for the firm-mattress lovers out there: Saatva is slashing up to $650 off purchases of $875 and up. Public relations director Erin Kaplan slept on Saatva’s “very firm” classic mattress, saying that “the mattress feels soft and ‘gives’ at pressure points (e.g. at your shoulders and upper arms when you’re sleeping on your side), but without any noticeable impact or movement elsewhere.”
Clever contributor Gabriela Ulloa called the queen size Helix Midnight Luxe “the cradled hug we’ve all been craving” in her mattress review. And really, can you put a price tag on that? The answer is yes—and happily that price tag is currently discounted by 20%. You’ll also receive two free Dream Pillows with your purchase.
There are a ton of deals happening over at Avocado Green, which is hosting what we would consider one of the top mattress discounts. Score up to $1,499 off mattresses, nearly $1,000 off adjustable bases, $500 off furniture, and 20% off organic bedding with the code LABORDAY. Need some backup? “Often gravitating toward a more firm sleeping experience, this mattress was perfect, as it wasn’t too soft to where I sank in but wasn’t too firm to where it felt like a rock,” says commerce producer Katarina Kovac, who reviewed the Avocado Eco Organic Mattress. “The back support was there, and as someone who’s 5’11”, that was sincerely appreciated.”
If you’re looking for something to pair with your highly-coveted Floyd bed frame, look no further than the brands own luxury hybrid mattress, now 20% off ahead of Labor Day weekend.
Tuft & Needle is celebrating Labor Day with up to $700 off mattresses and more. And while the Tuft & Needle Original Mattress is a great option, the brand’s Mint Mattress is a particularly good pick for side sleepers, like former AD PRO features editor Anna Fixsen, who “slept noticeably better” on the adaptive memory foam bed. “I found that I could find my comfy place quickly and fall asleep faster,” she says.
Another big name in the organic mattress game is Birch, who’s offering 20% off site-wide and throwing in two free Eco-Rest Pillows with each mattress purchase. Even better: free shipping. Designed in organic cotton, the Birch Natural Mattress is meant to be “highly breathable with a subtle stretch and soft touch.”
Bear has been in the mattress business for 25 years—meaning they know what they’re doing. Not only are their non-toxic, certified clean mattresses made in the US, but their beds are also designed with different levels of firmness and a unique combination of high-quality foams and coils to help your body restore while you sleep. Sound good? What’s better is the brand is taking 35% off all its mattresses during its Labor Day sale, while also giving those smart deal hunters $400 of sleep accessories for free. Here’s what’s included in that bundle: pillows, a sheet set, and a mattress protector.
If you’re new to the whole bed-in-a-box phenomenon, Leesa is an excellent choice that’s taking up to $700 off orders (and throwing in two free down-alternative pillows). And since we’re talking the best Labor Day mattress sales, we have to mention that their hybrid model combines pressure-relieving foam with 1,000 pocket springs to deliver just the right amount of support and comfort.
Sleeping on one of Purple’s proprietary polymer latex mattresses feels like being cradled but still supported—at least according to our editorial operations director Diane Dragan. “Even though I thought I was team firm mattress for life, Purple may be my new fave with its body adjustability combined with springs underneath,” Diane says. Right now you can head to Purple to snag up to $900 off a mattress + smart base set, plus save 20% on best-selling sleep essentials.
Nolah prides itself on being one of the best mattresses for side sleepers thanks to its proprietary cooling AirFoam, which “provides superior pressure relief, keeps you cool, and contours perfectly to your body.” Care to test out their claim? Get up to $1,200 off all mattresses for the Labor Day sale—plus an additional $400 off adjustable bed bases.
Here’s a deal we’re excited about from Amerisleep: Ahead of the Labor Day sale, the brand is taking $450 off any mattress with the code AS450. Personally, we’d go with their best-selling AS3—it’s designed to adapt to most sleep styles and available in both all-foam or a hybrid.
