If you’ve even spent an hour online searching for a new mattress, you’ll know just how overwhelming it can be!
There are thousands of mattress sellers across the USA all with unique mattress sales that offer different discounts… or do they? Is that mattress worth the money? And is it even right for you?
Don’t get drawn in by shiny price tags. Follow our guide to mattress sales in 2020 to work when and where to part with your money to finally buy a good night’s sleep!
Unlike many other online mattress reviews, we are independent. The mattresses mentioned on our website and in this very mattress sale guide are hand selected by our team and thoroughly tested by real people.
Not sure about the mattresses we mention? Not a problem. Just make sure you soak up all the valuable information you’re about to read, so you can make an educated purchase and find the perfect mattress in stores or online.
Finding the Best Mattress Sales
Mattress sales start year-round. In fact, many mattress sellers will permanently have what looks like a discount price displayed on their mattresses. Whether that’s genuinely a discount or not depends on the mattress seller – some are just there to make it look value for money, others genuinely are value for money.
Below we’re going to take you through some of the most popular mattresses on sale across the USA, with the retail price they are usually sold at. Bookmark this page so when you’re shopping you can see if similar mattresses really are discounted.
Before that, however, there are some key dates when mattress sales are practically guaranteed to go live:
- Martin Luther King Day
Last Martin Luther King Day we saw mattress sales from:
It’s not the biggest mattress sale day and you’re more likely to find sales online rather than instore on this day. Mark it on the calendar!
- President’s Day
On President’s Day, we found mattress sales live at nearly every mattress seller online and in stores across the country. Be prepared to haggle a little and find long queues at your nearest mattress store. If you are heading out to stores on this day, make sure you have in mind what you want so you can get in and out of the store with minimal hassle. It might be better to shop online if you want a quick purchase on this day!
- Memorial Day
From our experience and research, most Memorial Day mattress sales are held on furniture websites, not the official mattress websites. Look at Sears and Amazon to start with. Don’t forget that stores will be closed on this day, but you might still find a Memorial Day sale the days before and after the state holiday.
- Independence Day
Last 4th July we saw some explosive mattress deals from the likes of Amerisleep and TEMPUR, as well as site-wide discounts from malls and stores. Not all mattress suppliers take part in this sale, so the key is to look for mattresses manufactured and owned by American companies.
- Columbus Day
Another huge mattress sales day. Retailers including Bedding Mart and Macy’s have been known to have mattress sales on these days, plus Brooklyn’s Bedding and a host of different mattress manufacturers. Before you buy a mattress from a retailer on this day, particularly if it’s online, make sure you check the official website too. They might be offering a bigger discount on the exact same mattress.
- Labor Day
Labor Day mattress sales cover Serta, Amerisleep, Casper and all mattresses available at Macy’s. Like all other mattress sale days, make sure you don’t end up with a bargain mattress you don’t like!
- Veterans Day
There are major discounts on this day on everything, including mattresses, at retail stores across the country. But did you know that some mattress brands offer military discounts all year round? Look at the discounts from:
- Brooklyn Bedding
- Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Although there are mattress sales on these days, we don’t recommend taking part unless you are absolutely 100% sure of the mattress you want. There’s a tendency to get caught up in the sales and end up buying 10x more pillows you need for a luxury mattress that’s ultra-comfy but won’t quite fit your bed frame.
In our opinion, you’ll get better value for money by spending a fair amount on a good mattress than getting a bargain on a mattress you saw in the sale but haven’t researched.
Don’t forget that many sales mattresses will have different or no returns policy, regardless of the usual trial period. Don’t get stuck with a mattress you hate!
Best US Cities for Mattress Sales
As mattress experts, people from all over the country get in touch to ask us where the best place to buy mattresses from is in their city. So, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 cities we’re asked about. Find out the biggest mattress stores in your area where you might be able to catch an epic sale!
- Mattress Sale Chicago
Top of our list is Chicago! It seems many people struggle to find the best mattress sale in Chicago – or maybe there’s just too much choice.
The big brand mattress stores you can find across Chicago are Mattress Firm and American Mattress. You’ll find the highest number of mattress stores stretching up from New East Side towards Uptown. Boystown and Lincoln Park areas are a good place to start!
We’ve also heard some particularly good things about Sleep City and Chicago Discount Mattresses. Try there if you’re looking for advice before you buy and free delivery.
- Mattress Sale Las Vegas
It seems Las Vegas is home to not only the best casinos, but the best mattress stores too! No, really. The biggest mattress seller in Las Vegas is Best Mattress, followed by Mattress Firm and Macy’s.
Most mattress stores are Central/North Las Vegas. A good way to visit a chain of mattress stores in one go is to head along the 159, where you can find Best Mattress, Mattress Firm, and Mattress King of Las Vegas one after the other.
You’ll also find various mattress discount stores around trying to shift clearance stock – this is a good place to pick up a good mattress from a reputable brand for a low price.
- Mattress Sale Columbus Ohio
Columbus has a range of large mattress chains for you to choose from. You can find many Mattress Firm, Sleep Number, and The Original Mattress Factory stores across town. The Original Mattress Factory offers the best customer support without being overly pushy and salesy.
There are also quite a few independent mattress stores, if you’re willing to drive around a bit to find them.
Hot spots for mattress stores in Columbus Ohio are the Polaris Fashion Place and the streets south of the Ohio State University. We’ve also heard good things about Macy’s Furniture Clearance Center on Refugee Road.
- Mattress Sale Austin
Mattress Firm really has a firm grip on Austin! You can find many Mattress Firm stores are spread across North, South and Central Austin… but very few are outside of the central city area. Urban Mattress and Factory Mattress are 2 more stores you might see around. The vast majority, however, are independent stores in Austin.
We’d recommend Mattrezzz Guys (they’re legit, even though they don’t sound it!) and Austin Natural Mattress, if you want some help finding a good one.
- Mattress Sale Denver
Mattress Firm and Denver Mattress Company are the 2 big stores in this city. Most are in Central and South Denver. There’s a cluster around highway 2 between Glendale and Virginia Village, so this is a good place to start. Sleep Number and SleepNation can be found here too.
Urban Mattress has many good reviews thanks to their relaxed atmosphere that lets you find the right mattress at ease. Another great mattress sale Denver store!
- Mattress Sale Dallas
Mattress Firm, once again, dominate Dallas. You’ll also find several Mattress Expert stores dotted around town. Most mattress stores can be found in Uptown, Carrollton and along Dallas North Tollway.
If you’re happy to go on a bit of a drive, Mr. Mattress Furniture 4 Less (north of Lake Highlands) is one of the top-rated mattresses in the area. And there are plenty of happy mattress customers from Dallas Discount Mattress, if you want a huge bargain!
- Mattress Sale Indianapolis
The best way to browse Indianapolis mattress sales is to circle the I-465, as most stores are located on the outskirts of the city. Mattress Firm and American Mattress are the big stores in this area, but you’ll also find a few discount stores south towards Greenwood.
Furniture Overstock (Madison Avenue) is also a favorite of ours, offering great value when there’s a mattress sale on.
- Mattress Sale NYC
Most mattress stores are located from Midtown down to Brooklyn Bridge. Mattress Firm and COCO-MAT are the big stores in this area where you can find most of the popular mattress brands… they’re rarely a bargain unless they’re in a sale though!
The benefit of being in New York City is that you’ve got a higher than usual number of show rooms from mattress manufacturers. Leesa, Nest, Helix and Casper are just a few that you can test out for real before ordering in a mattress sale online.
Macy’s and Bob’s Discount Furniture stores are good places to shop in NYC as they offer delivery as well as a good service.
- Mattress Sale Miami
Mattress Firm and Mattress One stores are located across Miami FL. You can find a high concentration of mattress stores in The Shops at Midtown Miami and the surrounding blocks. There’s also a few around the South Dixie Highway by Northeast Coconut Grove.
Our personal recommendation is Mattress Kings along North Miami Avenue for a good bargain.
- Mattress Sale Los Angeles
Finally, representing the West coast, Los Angeles Mattress Stores are the biggest mattress seller in this area. Mattress Central also have quite a few stores around.
Pico Boulevard, nearing Santa Monica, has a high number of mattress stores that you can browse. But don’t stop there because mattress stores are dotted evenly around Los Angeles and neighboring cities.
In-Store Mattress Sales
There’s a difference between a real mattress sale in store, and just having labels on mattresses declaring that they’ve got a discount applied. When you’re in a store, and there’s a real sale on, here’s a few tips to make sure you get the most from the mattresses on sale.
- Try out the bed in the store. That initial impression of a bed is a good indication. Get rid of any fluffy pillows and just settle onto the mattress in your usual sleeping position (preferably with your partner too). Is it comfortable? You’ll only have a few minutes to check so don’t let the salesperson distract you. You also need to remember that the show mattress has probably been worn in by multiple people testing it – it might feel different when you get it back home… which brings us onto the next tip.
- Check the returns/trial details. When you’re shopping online, checking the trial and delivery details is something you’ll do first. In the store, that often gets left to the end or even in the fine print. Make sure you ask and get a definitive answer from the salesperson before taking a mattress home.
- If you’re not good at haggling, we recommend you go with a friend who has the balls to haggle for you. Sure, you’ll be inconveniencing a friend for an afternoon, but you could save $100s!
- Ask lots of questions. Besides asking the questions that pop into your head, don’t be afraid to really quiz the salesperson and see if they are knowledgeable or just repeating a script. A good mattress store salesperson will know the mattresses inside and out.
If your mattress salesman is faltering at these questions, we’d advise that you politely turn away and find somewhere else to shop. If the salesperson doesn’t know the answers and you need to spend hours researching, you might as well buy online anyway!
Our Top Picks for In-Store Mattress Models
In this table, you’ll find some of the mattress models that are only available in stores. If you come across one of these, you’re in for a treat! Test these mattresses out in the store, as you can’t buy these mattresses easily online afterward.
Also, bear in mind that the prices of these mattresses will vary from one store to the next. In our table we’ve quoted the pre-sale price that we found online, but some stores might try to charge you more, either to earn commission or scam you into paying more than a mattress is worth.

Mattress Sale Online
Buying mattresses online gives you an overwhelming range of choices. There are pros and cons compared to buying a mattress in stores:
- Huge range of choices
- Very easy to compare mattress features
- Get real opinions from Trustpilot, Reddit and other review sites
- Nearly all online mattresses have trial periods
- Avoid the crowds that gather at mattress sales!
- Difficult to compare mattress firmness
- It would take a lifetime to carefully compare every mattress available
- Delivery can be more expensive
- If you don’t know what mattress type you like, there’s no chance to test them out
- No salesperson to guide you and quickly answer your questions
Mattress sales online really grab your attention with countdowns and “limited time only” icons. But take your time! Stocks aren’t going to run out fast (unless it’s cyber Monday, of course) so don’t get sucked in.
Some mattress stores, like Nest and even Avocado, will have physical showrooms even if they only sell mattresses online. If you’re lucky enough to find one in your city, we highly recommend going to test them out. Sure, that might mean that you pay $200 more because you missed the online sale, but it ensures you don’t waste $1,000 on a mattress you aren’t comfortable on.
Foam Mattresses Online
Let’s start with the foam mattresses. Below you’ll find a table of our favorite foam mattresses available online. But before you start browsing that, there are some things you should know about foam mattresses.
Foam mattress sales can be huge – but don’t go for an ultra-cheap foam mattress even at a discount. A terrible foam mattress is worse than a terrible hybrid, spring or latex mattress by far. Once they say, they’re the most uncomfortable to sleep on. If you’re going to buy a mattress that isn’t on our list, read some online reviews before buying!
To work out how much a foam mattress curves to your body, look at the depth of the top layer. If it only dips 1 inch, it’s going to feel quite firm for a foam mattress. A thick top layer will dip and curve with your body, which is great for side sleepers but a nightmare for back and stomach sleepers. For combination sleepers, look for foam mattresses with that thin top layer for all-round support.
Many foam mattresses will also have cooling mechanisms built in. The most common is the gel foam top layer. Now, this will keep you nice and cool at first, but as the memory foam dips and compresses to your body, that layer get’s thinner and the cooling effect drops. If heat is a real problem for you, look for mattresses that have cool sleeping mechanisms configured in at every level.
Our foam mattress price range $399 for a twin to $6,998 for a Cal King. There’s something here for every budget.

Latex Mattresses Online
Latex mattresses are the least common on the market and can be expensive! Even a latex mattress sale will set you back a fair amount. Here are some key considerations you need to think about when searching latex mattress sales!
Natural vs Synthetic Latex
Natural latex is collected from trees and plants, as liquid rubber. These last much longer than any other mattress type on the market. They do have an odor when new, caused by off-gassing. This can dissipate in a few days or take months. Read reviews to find out how long and keep hold of your old mattress until the latex has aired out.
Synthetic latex is chemically made to be very similar to natural latex, but it does have some key differences. Firstly, it’s not eco-friendly. It also has far worse off-gassing and is prone to tearing/sagging way before a natural latex mattress would. The real attraction to synthetic latex is the low price.
In the table below you’ll find pure latex mattresses and hybrid mattresses that have the benefits a latex mattress does. Prices range from $545 for a Twin to $2,499 for a Cal King, although they will be lower in the latex mattress sale.
|Avocado||Green Mattress||Natural Latex, Wool, Wrapped Coils (Hybrid)||Medium-Firm||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$959 – $1,699||100 days||25 years|
|DreamCloud||DreamCloud Premier Mattress||Natural Latex, Memory Foam, Wrapped Coils (Hybrid)||Medium||Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$899 – $1,399||365 days||Lifetime|
|GhostBed||The GhostBed||Synthetic Latex, Memory Foam, Gel Foam (Hybrid)||Medium||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Split King, Cal King||$545 – $1,290||101 days||20 years|
|Kiss by SleepEZ||Kiss Mattress||Foam, Natural Latex (Hybrid)||Plush or Supportive||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$695 – $1,200||100 days||10 years|
|Plushbeds||The Botanical Bliss||Natural Latex||Soft||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, Split Queen, King, Split King, Cal King, Split Cal King||$999 – $1,998||100 days||25 years|
|Zenhaven||Zenhaven Mattress||Natural Latex||Medium-Soft or Firm||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$1,299 – $2,499||120 days||20 years|
|Big Fig||The Big Fig||Gel Foam, Synthetic Latex, Poly Foam, Wrapped Coils (Hybrid)||Medium-Firm||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$1,299 – $1,999||120 days||20 years|
A hybrid mattress offers the best comfort. Those that buy a hybrid find that they are the most satisfied. This is because they are all incredibly different. When you have many different layers, all of which can be different thicknesses and in a different order, the potential is limitless.
You might be wondering why we’ve got hybrids on our list for finding mattress sales rather than pure innersprings. The reason is, there are very few innerspring mattress sales worth your time. They’re just not comfortable and can’t provide the support other mattress types can.
Like the double is no longer used by couples, the innerspring is no longer used by those that are serious about getting a good night’s sleep.
Even though hybrid mattresses contain multiple mattress types, they’re some of the cheapest on the market. Our list of top hybrid mattresses on sale starts with Twin sizes at $245 and ends with Cal King’s at $6,598.
|Allswell||The Allswell Signature||Hybrid (Memory Foam, Wrapped Coils)||Medium||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$245 – $420||100 days||10 years|
|Allswell||The Luxe Hybrid||Hybrid (Quilted Memory Foam, Wrapped Coils)||Medium||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$345 – $745||100 days||10 years|
|Bear||Bear Hybrid||Hybrid (Memory Foam, Gel Foam, Wrapped Coils)||Firm||Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Cal King||$990 – $1,490||100 days||20 years|

What to Look for During Individual Mattress Sales
The two things you need to remember most when you see a sale are:
- Stick to your budget
- Do your research
It’s fine to go shopping on an impulse when you see a mattress sale, just don’t head home with a mattress you can’t realistically afford or is completely unsuited to your sleeping position!
- Mattress Firm Sale
With mattresses ranging from $100 to $8,000 (before sale discounts), you can find a lot of mattresses at Mattress Firm. Well-known brands on sale include Beautyrest and Serta, but there are also a lot of lesser-known mattresses on sale here. Make sure you research those thoroughly before you buy!
Sales at Mattress Firm usually include a discounted price or financing deal. Their stores are all over the states, you can usually find at least one in every city.
- Sears Mattress Sale
Sears hold mattress sales at least yearly, so it’s a good idea to check whether there’s a sale on before buying elsewhere. Sears mattress sale stocks over 250 brands currently! That’s the most of any mattress seller that we’ve found. Most mattress brands mentioned on this list are included.
Sears is a great place to grab a discount mattress when you know what you want, however, if you need help deciding on a mattress or working out what you need, a showroom or smaller mattress store will be more helpful.
- Macy’s Mattress Sale
Macy’s mattress sale has mattresses from brands including Aireloom, Beautyrest, Hotel Collection, Serta, Macybed, Purple, Sealy, SensorGel, Serta and Stearns & Foster.
Prices are extremely varied, as the brands vary. Macybed is their own brand, but we prefer Sealy, Serta, and Purple over them. Make sure you test these beds out before buying. Macy’s stores can be found all over the states so you’ve really no excuse.
- Tempur-Pedic Mattress Sale
Tempur-Pedic mattresses are sold widely, everywhere from Costco to Amazon. Their prices are quite high, especially when you compare them to foam mattresses. If you like what Tempur-Pedic has to offer and you spot a sale, take advantage.
Official Tempur-Pedic stores and showrooms where you can talk to real experts are mostly found on the east coast around New York state.
- Serta Mattress Sale
Serta, like Sealy, are sold on the official website and at various outlets. Some discounts you might see online or in adverts apply to direct sales from the official website only, so don’t get your hopes up for an extra discount at Macy’s!
If you want a simple discount off the price, look to the Serta website. For other discounts, delivery deals and reward points, look for Serta at department stores. Prices before the sale are typically between $300 and $3,000, with a few luxury mattresses costing a bit more.
- Sealy Mattress Sale
Sealy do sales on their own website and at a large range of mattress and furniture department stores. Many of those stores are listed here, but you can also find them on Amazon (best for delivery and reading unbiased reviews) and The Mattress Factory Inc.
Pre-sale, prices range from $499 to $2,499.
- JCPenney Mattress Sale
JCPenney’s mattress sales offer free delivery (online), discounted prices and extra reward points. They mostly stock big brand mattresses like Serta, Sealy, Stearns & Foster, Beautyrest, Tempur-Pedic, and own-brand JCPenney mattresses. Prices average between $1,000 and $3,000, but they do also have a selection of cheap mattresses for a few hundred dollars and even some over $5,000.
Despite closing many stores in the past few years, you can still find JCPenney stores around the states. Their best sales, however, are now online.
- Mattress Warehouse Sale
Mattress Warehouse, and sister company Sleep Outfitters, stock mattresses from Sealy, Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster, Symbol, Malouf and Comfort Revolution. Prices start at around $200, which is average, but they also stock some very high-end mattresses coming in at about $3,000. Their sales are both online and instore.
You can find Mattress Warehouse and Sleep Outfitters stores in eastern states including Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, and West Virginia.
- Big Lots Mattress Sale
Big Lots have a range of mattresses from varying sellers, primarily Serta and Zeopedic. Prices for a Queen mattress range from $100 to $1,300. Most deals at Big Lots are for buying the mattress as part of a set, with a bed frame or bedding – that’s where you make the saving.
You can find Big Lots stores in every state across the USA, excluding Hawaii and Alaska.
- IKEA Mattress Sale
IKEA mattress sales include their stock of Morgedal (foam), Haugesund (spring), Haugsvar (hybrid), Matrand (memory foam), Hesstun (Eurotop), Myrbacka (latex), and a range of pillowtop mattresses.
IKEA do sell their mattresses online, prices starting at $120 and ending at $1,000. Sizes available are Twin, Full, Queen and King. You’ll only find IKEA brand mattresses in the sale.
You can find IKEA stores in cities across 29 states, with a large number in California in particular!
