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-percent-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 coming up. 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 (plus, freebies like pillows and sheet sets!). 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, so you can properly enjoy the best Labor Day mattress sales running right now.
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 $200 off and $399 worth of free accessories with every mattress purchase.
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 $200 and you’ll receive two free Dream pillows with purchase.
It’s no secret Casper makes very good mattresses (not to mention all new beds are backed by a solid sleep trial period and warranty). And right now through 9/13 you can get up to $600 off comfy models like the Nova Hybrid (and up to 50% off select items). 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.”
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 firmness options 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 30% off all its mattresses (and throwing in free cloud pillows or a deeply discounted sleep bundle) during their early Labor Day sale.
Here’s another great deal for the firm mattress lovers out there: Saatva is slashing 12% off any purchase of $1000 or more right now. 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.”
Like Avocado, Awara makes a very supportive mattress using natural materials like organic cotton and New Zealand wool. This Labor Day, you can save $300 on any one of their quality 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 pillow top but looking for ample support? Try this hybrid from Brooklyn Bedding that blends the best of both worlds. Whether you’re looking for soft, medium firm, or ultra firm, the brand has three comfort levels to choose from—all at 25% off with code LABORDAY25, through 9/8.
Tuft & Needle is celebrating Labor Day with up to $600 off through 9/5. 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.
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 $800 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 LDS400. 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 9/6.
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 $500 off your purchase of the brand’s highly supportive mattresses, now through 9/12.
Hot sleepers and those with back pain need not fret on BeautyRest’s Black Mattress. The very cooling luxury mattress 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 $1000 off through 9/12? What’s not to like!
If you’re looking for something to pair with your highly-coveted FLOYD bed frame, look no further than the brand’s own luxury hybrid mattress, now 20% off ahead of Labor Day weekend.
Here’s a deal we’re excited about from Amerisleep: Right now, the brand is taking $450 off sitewide (meaning any one of its mattresses!) with 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.
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 mattress deals you can race over to save $150 off one of their cooling mattresses, just use code WIN150 at checkout.
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 be one of the only mattress brands 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.
