One of the perks of being a Clever editor is that it’s our job to shop. But since we’re not made of money, Labor Day mattress sales (and all sales, really) are our dear friends. Just as we’re endlessly adding stuff to our shopping carts, we’re also constantly taking note of major discounts, special promos, and 15-percent-off coupons, so that we can snag expensive stuff 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, meaning steep discounts on high-priced items that happen only a few times a year. If you’re in the market for a new mattress, now’s your chance to grab a deal. We’ve selected a few standout brands running sales below and are always happy to provide recommendations on recommendations from our editors, should you need a little sleep inspo. We’ve also completed endless hours of highly scientific sleep research to recommend you the best sheets, pillows, and bed frames to peruse. Anyway, we digress: Enjoy the hottest Labor Day mattress sales running right now. And check this story for all the other home decor deals of the season.
Not one but two AD staffers–senior SEO manager Katie Henwood and digital features editor Nick Mafi–have slept soundly on their Nectar purchases. 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 $399 worth of free accessories with every mattress purchase.
Former AD PRO editor Katy Olson suspected the “firm, but not overly so” Avocado mattress helped relieve some of her nightly allergy sneezing. During their end of summer sale the brand is taking $100 off its Avocado Green, Vegan and Latex Mattresses with code SUMMEROFAVO, through 9/13.
Clever contributor Gabriela Ulloa called the Helix Midnight Luxe “The Cradled Hug We’ve All Been Craving” in her review earlier this year. And, really, can you put a price tag on that? The answer is yes, and happily that price tag is currently discounted by $200 and you’ll receive two free Dream pillows with purchase.
It’s no secret Casper makes very good mattresses. And right now through 9/7 you can get up to 15% off select models like the Nova Hybrid (and 10% off everything else) with code LABORDAY. Former Clever 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.
If you’re new to the whole bed-in-a-box phenomenon, Leesa is another excellent choice that’s taking up to $500 off orders (and throwing in two free down alternative pillows) through 9/13. Their hybrid mattress combines pressure-relieving foam with 1,000 pocket springs to deliver just the right amount of support and comfort.
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 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 25% off all its mattresses (and throwing in free cloud pillows and a free sheet set) during their Labor Day sale.
Like Avocado, Awara makes a very supportive mattress using natural materials like organic cotton and New Zealand wool. This Labor Day, you can save $400 on any one of their mattresses and enjoy $499 worth of accessories for free. Plus, the brand will even plant ten trees for a farmer in need with every purchase.
Love a quilted top but looking for ample support? Try this hybrid from Brooklyn Bedding that blends the best of both worlds with three levels of firmness to choose from—it’s also 25% off with code LABORDAY25 through 9/8.
Here’s another great deal for the firm mattress lovers out there: Saatva is slashing $200 off any purchase of $975 or more, through 9/6. 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.”
Tuft & Needle is celebrating Labor Day with Up to 15% off through 9/6. The brand’s Mint Mattress is a particularly good option 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.
Sleeping on one of Purple’s proprietary polymer latex mattresses feels like being cradled but is still supportive—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 $350 off select mattress purchases during their sale.
Another name in the natural mattress game is Birch, who’s taking $400 off mattresses and throwing in two free pillows with code LDAY400. Designed in organic cotton, the Birch Natural Mattress is meant to be “highly breathable with a subtle stretch and soft touch.”
Sleep company Layla infuses their gel memory foam mattresses with—get this—copper. The brand claims its copper-based technology provides varied support, helps you sleep cooler, and has antimicrobial properties to help fight odor-causing bacteria. To sweeten the deal, the brand’s also offering up to $200 off mattresses and two free memory foam pillows through 9/6.
Nolah prides itself on being one of the best mattresses for side-sleepers thanks to its proprietary Cooling Nolah AirFoam which “provides superior pressure relief, keeps you cool, and contours perfectly to your body.” Care to test out their claim? Now’s a great time considering the brand’s offering up to $700 off Mattresses and two free pillows through 9/7.
Each individually wrapped coil in Serta’s carbon fiber memory foam “iComfort” mattress is designed to mold to your body’s natural curvature while providing the highest degree of support. What’s more is you can save up to $1,000 off your purchase of the brand’s highly supportive mattresses, now through 9/13.
Hot sleepers need not fret on BeautyRest’s Black Mattress. The very cooling bed features what the brand calls its BlackICE 4.0 system “designed to help you sleep cooler and longer.” Combined with reinforced edge support, supportive spring technology, and up to $300 off through 9/13? What’s not to like!
Through 9/6, all of Allswell’s mattresses are 15% off mattresses with code LABORDAY2021. Director of commerce partnerships Jacqueline Wladis can’t recommend Allswell’s most luxe mattress enough: “The entire design of the mattress makes me feel like I’m sleeping on a cloud while keeping me cool and supporting me so that I stay asleep.”
If you’re looking for something to pair with your highly-coveted FLOYD bed frame, look no further than the brand’s own hybrid mattress, now $125 off with code LABORDAY21.
There’s plenty of great mattress deals to take advantage of from California-cool brand Brentwood Home. Right now the brand is taking $200 off Cedar and Crystal Cove Mattresses using code SWEETDREAMS; $300 off Oceano Mattress using code SUMMER; $50 off 11″ Cypress Mattress using code CYPRESS50; and $75 off 13″ Cypress mattress using code CYPRESS75.
Here’s a deal we’re excited about from Amerisleep: Right now, the brand is taking 30% any one of its mattresses (plus two free cooling pillows) with code AS30. 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.
Zoma, the bed brand targeted specifically at athletes, is offering a very competitive deal on its offerings of supportive and restorative mattresses. During their ongoing Labor Day sale you can race over to save $150 off mattresses and rack up to $540 in free accessories.
Vaya is all low-cost comfort without sacrificing quality. Though it’s only made of two layers of the brand’s own “comfort foam,” Vaya promises you’ll sleep soundly no matter what position you prefer. Right now you can save $300 on its namesake mattress (along with its hybrid counterpart) with code VAYA300.
Eight Sleep might make the only mattress guaranteed to help you sleep hotter or colder. This is thanks to hydraulic technology that flows hot or cold water directly underneath your body as you sleep. If this sounds like it’s up your ally, we’re happy to report that you can save up to $100 off the brand’s Pod mattress during their Labor Day sale.
