When you take advantage of mattress sales, you can save hundreds of dollars on the bed of your dreams. Whether you're shopping for a high-tech hybrid, a plush memory foam model, or a luxury latex, I can help you to get it for less.

July is a great time to shop the mattress sales. You've got the 4th of July sales at the start of the month, where you'll find deep discounts on beds across the Internet, as well as Amazon Prime Day on the 16th and 17th July, where you could make a major saving on a box mattress. With so much listed for so little, it's easy to feel spoiled for choice.

That's where I come in. Before I started as H&G's sleep writer, I was a price tracker. I scoured the sites of all the major mattress brands, monitoring their prices over the months. I know what makes the best mattress and I know where − and when − to get it for the best price. I've also thrown in a few of the best deals on toppers and protectors for good measure.

Nectar Memory Foam Mattress | Was $1,099.00, now $649.00 at Nectar
Memory foam

Nectar Memory Foam Mattress | Was $1,099.00, now $649.00 at Nectar

If you're a side sleeper, and you appreciate a softer surface, or you suffer from chronic pain and you're crying out for pressure relief, I suggest you sleep on a memory foam mattress. This one is as good as it gets, made to mold to the shape of your body and cushion your hips, knees, neck and shoulders.

Bear Elite Hybrid Mattress | Was $2,305.00, now $1,499.00 at Bear
Hybrid

Bear Elite Hybrid Mattress | Was $2,305.00, now $1,499.00 at Bear

I just got back from a mattress testing trip to the 3Z factory in Phoenix, Arizona. I sampled more than 40 beds, but the Bear Elite Hybrid Mattress was in my top three. As a hybrid mattress, this bed combines the plush comfort of memory foam with the support and airflow of an innerspring. When you shop the July mattress sales, you can get it for $850 less than its RRP.

Bed in a box deals

The best box mattresses are already affordable. When you shop the mattress sales, you can save more money to spend on sheets, shams, and blankets: everything you need to upgrade your bed.

Emma Original Mattress | Was $1,159.00, now $579.00 at Emma
Best box

Emma Original Mattress | Was $1,159.00, now $579.00 at Emma

You can save a whopping 50% on this memory foam mattress when you shop the May mattress sales. Like any memory foam mattress, the Emma Original sleeps a little warm, and its edge support leaves a little to be desired, but it's soft and supportive. If you'd like a little plush comfort for less, this is where to get it.

Zinus Cooling Green Tea | Was $599.00, now $449.00 at Zinus
Active cooling

Zinus Cooling Green Tea | Was $599.00, now $449.00 at Zinus

Memory foam gets a bad rap for hot sleepers. A lot of foam is thick and firm, without any of the air bubbles that boost breathability. That isn't true of the Zinus Cooling Green Tea Mattress: in fact, it's one of the best cooling mattresses on the market, infused with a cooling blend of copper and green tea to dissipate heat and wick moisture.

You can find more detail in our Zinus Cooling Green Tea Mattress review.

Nolah Original Mattress | Was $1,449.00, now $942.00 at Nolah
Breathable

Nolah Original Mattress | Was $1,449.00, now $942.00 at Nolah

Where memory foam tends to trap heat, Nolah's patented AirFoam is perforated with thousands of tiny little holes to optimize airflow through the mattress. I'd recommend this breathable bed for hot sleepers and summer nights, though you might want to pair it with a set of the best cooling sheets to be safe.

Helix Dusk Luxe Mattress | Was $2,373.80, now $1,780.30 at Helix
Affordable luxe

Helix Dusk Luxe Mattress | Was $2,373.80, now $1,780.30 at Helix

This hybrid mattress marries the plush comfort of memory foam with the airflow of an innerspring to support all sleep positions. The Helix Dusk Luxe is breathable and bouncy, but it isn't perfect: the motion isolation could use some work.

Custom comfort

WinkBed Luxury Hybrid Mattress | Was $1,799.00, now $1,499.00 at WinkBeds

Organic mattress deals

If you're prepared to spend on a mattress, you should consider investing in the best organic mattress to stand the test of time. These mattresses are made from sustainable materials that are good for your body and kind to the planet. They're often incredibly luxurious, but they're so expensive that I recommend buying them in the sales.

Organic wool

Woolroom Hebridean 3000 Mattress | Was $3,098.00, now $1,858.50 at Woolroom

Contrary to popular opinion, organic wool isn't scratchy nor stifling, but breathable and durable. One of our expert testers, Sophie, sampled the Woolroom Hebridean 3000 Mattress in the middle of spring, and she couldn't believe how cool it kept her.

Mattress topper and protector deals

You might not want, need, or feel able to afford a brand new bed, even in the mattress sales. Not to worry: you can transform the feel of your bed with one thick layer of foam. The best mattress topper could soften up your sleeping surface or reinforce support for a fraction of the price. The best mattress protector should elongate the life of your mattress, minimizing the effect of spills and stains.

Tempur-Adapt Tempur-Topper | Was $419.00, now $251.40 at Tempur-Pedic
Best topper

Tempur-Adapt Tempur-Topper | Was $419.00, now $251.40 at Tempur-Pedic

This is the best mattress topper we've ever tested. When you use the code TOPPERS40, you can save more than $150 on it. I'd recommend the Tempur-Adapt Tempur-Topper for anyone who wants to soften up a firm, inflexible mattress. The comfort and support are unparalleled and the motion isolation is next level.

ViscoSoft Select High Density Mattress Topper | Was $269.95, now $159.95 at ViscoSoft
Dorm deal

ViscoSoft Select High Density Mattress Topper | Was $269.95, now $159.95 at ViscoSoft

As a recent grad who wrestled with a seriously uncomfortable college bed, I reckon this is the best mattress topper for dorm beds. This topper is plush enough to soften up a firm mattress, yet sufficiently supportive to prevent slipping and sagging. Plus, it's infused with cooling copper to soothe hot sleepers.

Sijo TempTune Mattress Pad | Was $175.00, now $140.00 at Sijo
Thermoregulation

Sijo TempTune Mattress Pad | Was $175.00, now $140.00 at Sijo

Plush comfort

Buffy Plushy Mattress Protector | Was $129.00, now $103.20 at Buffy

This mattress protector feels more like a mattress topper to me. It's soft and squishy enough to transform the feel of your old mattress. This mattress pad is thermoregulating and moisture-wicking to stop sweat from seeping through and staining your bed.

Mattress sales FAQs

Are mattresses always on sale?

Not every mattress is always on sale, but I take your point: it would seem that you can always get a good deal on a mattress. Be warned that not every mattress sale is real: a few of the biggest names in bedding list never-changing 'sales prices' throughout the year in a practice known as price anchoring. If you're keen to spot a good deal from a real fake, it might be worth downloading a reputable price tracker.

Federal holidays like 4th of July, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving tend to bring the deepest discounts on bedding. When you take advantage of these sales, you could bag a big-ticket item, such as a mattress, at a bargain price.

When is the best time to buy a mattress?

I've written an entire article answering the question: 'when is the best time to buy a mattress?' If you don't have time to read the whole thing, here are the highlights.

The best time of year to buy a mattress is in winter or early spring, or during a federal holiday. 4th of July is a great time to buy a mattress, as manufacturers start to cut prices to shift old stock and make room for new models. If you shop from my shortlist, you might find even deeper discounts than you saw on Black Friday.

Final thoughts

Once you've bought the best bed, it's time to dress it. When you shop the bedding sales, you can save hundreds of dollars on sheets, shams, quilts, comforters, and everything in between.

If you've got expensive taste, but a tight budget, then I suggest you shop the luxury bedding sales at Bloomingdale's. I've never seen such deep discounts on luxury brands, from Frette to Sferra.
