Deals on our top mattress picks

Allswell Supreme Hybrid

Enter code MEMDAY20 at checkout to see the discount. Jeffrey Van Camp, reviews director of WIRED, says the Allsweel Supreme is as comfortable as a $2,000 mattress. Of all the mattresses he tested, this one dragged, and it was the only bed his pregnant partner wanted to sleep on during her third trimester because of its softness and support for side sleeping. It doesn’t have the best edge support, but it’s still a great choice.

Enter code MEMDAY20 at checkout to see the discount. This Allswell doesn’t seem as cheap as its price might indicate. It’s also a hybrid (our mattress guide explains what that means), which you rarely see at this price. It has a medium firm feel and is ribbed with tubing for added edge support. Whether you need it for yourself or have a spare bedroom to outfit, you can’t go wrong here. If you have a little more to spend, Allswell has an excellent Luxe Hyrbid version for $559 ($140 off)but the supreme above is his best.

WIRED senior writer Scott Gilbertson tried a handful of sustainably made mattresses, and the Avocado Green remained his top pick. It’s the only mattress he and his wife can agree on, because he prefers a firm bed and she likes a soft bed. It’s both, without being too much of either. It is made of organic latex, organic wool and organic cotton. It’s also non-toxic, containing no polyurethane, fire retardants, memory foam, or chemical adhesives. Avocado has its own sheep farms and latex farm. The price of the mattress has jumped since last year.

Other sustainable mattress offers

Natural Birch

Enter code MDSALE400 at checkout to see the discount, which also includes two pillows. The Avocado mattress above is our favorite of the organic mattresses we’ve tried, but Birch’s Natural is a solid alternative for side sleepers. It’s made by Helix, the company that makes our global mattress topper, and its price has also increased (potentially resulting from a mix of global supply chain issues and inflation). Birch is made of natural latex and wool and is free of polyurethane-based foams and chemicals. WIRED writer Louryn Strampe says a visible outline formed where she and her partner slept each night, but it wasn’t a problem.

Enter code REMEMBER at checkout to see the discount. If your little one needs a new bed, you can save money by getting this twin hybrid. It is made of certified organic cotton, wool and latex. It’s firm, but the WIRED kids who tried it loved it. For around $125 more, you can get the two-sided version to extend its life against rambunctious children.

This offer includes two pillows, a set of sheets and a mattress cover. The Birch mattress offers more support, but Awara’s hybrid is more affordable. It’s supportive and bouncy, but you might want to get a topper (we’ve got options below) to smooth out the hard edges. This mattress had almost no smell when unpacked, which is rare in mattresses.

Other Hybrid Mattress Deals

Casper Original Hybrid

You’ve probably heard of Casper, as his first foam mattress popularized the bed-in-a-box concept. The hybrid is our company favorite, with a level of firmness that’s a good balance between softness and support, and it’s more breathable than all-foam. If you don’t like any other mattress, get this one. WIRED reviews director Jeffrey Van Camp is currently testing Casper Hybrid Wave with additional Snow cooling tech, which is discounted to $2,715 ($680 off). It doesn’t notice any significant cooling compared to the Original Hybrid, but it does offer more support. You can save $400 by skipping the Snow add-on.

Enter code SLEEP300 at checkout to see the discount. WIRED editor Julian Chokkattu is currently testing this bed. He says the Tencel cover adds a plush softness to the top, but it’s still relatively firm. Edge support is also very good, and he noticed that it didn’t bother his partner when he went to bed later at night. He sleeps on his stomach and back, while his partner sleeps on his side, and the WinkBed felt comfortable in all of these positions. These mattresses are handmade to order in the USA.

This offer includes two pillows. Leesa’s hybrid mattress is another favorite of ours. It’s cheaper than the Helix Luxe, but still expensive. That said, this sale is still down $100 from what we saw last year, putting it at one of the lowest prices we’ve tracked. The Leesa Hybrid felt cool and comfortable in our testing, just like a bed should.

Brooklyn Bedding Signature

Enter code MEMORIAL25 at checkout to see the discount. If you like a firm bed, the Brooklyn Bedding Signature Hybrid is extra firm. WIRED review director Jeffrey Van Camp said he’d go for the medium version next time to get something a little milder. We saw this mattress drop to $787 last year. Not firm enough? Brooklyn Bedding is selling the Plank mattresses also, aptly named.

This mattress has also increased in price; last Memorial Day it was down to $1,299 with the same discount. It’s still a decent hybrid mattress – don’t leave the word classic to cheat you. There are three firmness levels and two thickness options. You also get premium delivery and the brand will take your old mattress away. It’s a luxury.

This offer includes two pillows, a set of sheets and a mattress cover. The DreamCloud Hybrid has a thick, luxurious cushion top that is similar to the Helix Midnight Luxe and Allswell Supreme.

Layla Double Sided Foam Mattress

This offer includes two pillows. Most mattress companies have generous return policies, but no one really wants to haul something that size and then do it again, especially if you like the mattress but just need a different firmness. Layla offers two sides to determine if you need a semi-firm or semi-soft product. If you feel your preferences change during the week, just flip them.

This offer includes two pillows, a set of sheets and a mattress topper. Although most mattresses are constantly discounted, we most often see it at a price of $799. That said, it usually doesn’t come with all of these accessories. Side sleepers may prefer this classic memory foam mattress, which will envelop you to sleep. He conforms to you, but you won’t sink.

Purple mattresses have an interesting, waffle-like Jell-O-like grid that creates softness and support. It’s comfortable, but not as comfortable as the hybrids. Purple has a hybrid, but it’s much more expensive.

Mint Tufted & Needle Mattress

Consider the Mint mattress if you need pressure relief to sleep better at night. Despite its top layer of “adaptive” foam that you will sink into a bit, it offers good support. It has green ceramic gel foam to disperse heat, and it springs back, so you shouldn’t find a person-shaped imprint when you return to bed the next night. Like many on this list, the price has gone up since the last holiday.

We prefer Casper’s hybrid option above, but its standard foam mattress is just as popular. It has been updated since its first publication. Casper was one of the first in this category, so he had time to perfect his standard mattress.

This offer includes two pillows. The Leesa was a lot like the Casper, but we found it a bit more comfortable. As with Casper, we prefer Leesa’s hybrid mattress, if you can get your hands on it.

Enter code STAY COMFORTABLE at checkout to see the discount. It’s a perfectly fine mattress that WIRED reviewer Matt Jancer liked. He says he was never blown away, but he slept well on his side for two months while testing it. The top layer is made from recycled materials.

Offers on blankets and mattress toppers

Avocado Alpaca Wool Mattress Topper

Enter code SAVE10 at checkout to see the discount. If your old mattress is in reasonably good shape, you may be able to get away with it by simply upgrading to a mattress topper. This one is for those who love soft mattresses. It’s as expensive as some brand-new beds, but WIRED reviewer Scott Gilbertson says putting it on your mattress feels like you’re in a five-star hotel. Oddly, the standard Avocado cover has straps, while this one doesn’t. It stayed in place thanks to its cotton cover, but the corners sometimes rolled up.

Enter code REMEMBER at checkout to see the discount. If you prefer a firm mattress topper, opt for this one. It’s significantly cheaper than Avocado’s, so you can feel like you’ve got a brand new mattress for just a few Benjamins. It measures 2 inches thick and is made of certified organic latex wrapped in an organic cotton cover. It has no straps, but it holds up very well.

Do you love your mattress but are you always too hot or too cold? It could be a good investment — insist on the investment, because it’s quite expensive. A backpack-sized device sits next to your bed, and you can set it to cool or heat your bed to the exact temperature you need.
