Time to upgrade your mattress? Brands are competing for Labor Day sales

Last Updated December 2019

Everyone needs a mattress, and what you choose will have a major impact on your daily life. A restful night’s sleep is invaluable, which is why a quality mattress is a crucial — and financially significant — investment.

If you need an excellent mattress but don’t want to strain your budget, Labor Day is a great time to save. We sorted through the best mattress deals and compiled this list of recommendations.

All of the following sale prices use a queen bed as the standard for comparison, so keep that in mind if you’re looking to fit a bed of a different size.

A mattress is only one part of the equation when it comes to the perfect sleeping setup; pillows and sheets also play a critical role in comfort. Cocoon has you covered with everything you need for bedtime bliss, because their Labor Day bundle offers 25% off their Chill Mattress with a free sheet set and two pillows included. If it’s time for a total bed upgrade, you can get this mattress set now for just $697.50.

For the eco-minded, Molecule promises green production practices — reducing emissions by 97% compared to standard manufacturing. You can be environmentally and budget-friendly when you shop Molecule’s Labor Day deal. With the code LABOR20, you’ll get 20% off sitewide, and each mattress includes a sustainably made sheet set. With this sale, you can get a basic queen mattress for $787.52, saving $179.80 on the mattress and $219 on the free sheet set.

Do you sleep in several positions? The Puffy spinal alignment feature ensures a good night’s sleep whether you find yourself laying on your back, side, or stomach.
