Best Presidents Day mattress sales going on right now
Online mattress giant Nectar offers up to 40% off mattresses for Presidents Day. People who love the feel of true memory foam that’s slow-moving and cocoons your curves won’t want to miss this sale. Nectar mattresses are already affordable, but you’ll be hard-pressed to beat $659 for the flagship all-foam Nectar mattress. The Nectar Hybrid is only $799, and the Nectar Premier is only $1,099.
Casper mattresses are already what we would consider affordable; the up to 30% off Presidents Day mattress sale makes it a great time to buy a Casper bed if you’ve had your eye on one. The Original Casper mattress is 15% off, bringing it to $1,100. The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress is 30% off, which brings it to only $2,167.
Casper pillows and bedding are also included in this sale. Additionally, you can save 25% off the bundle of a mattress protector and foundation. Casper’s Presidents Day mattress sale ends on Feb. 28.
DreamCloud’s Presidents Day mattress sale is by far one of the most generous right now at 50% off all mattresses. Most other brands are averaging around 20% to 35%, so this is probably one of the best options for the average person, especially pillow top lovers.
Right now, you can get the DreamCloud mattress for $665 and the DreamCloud Premier for $916. I really can’t overstate what a deal that is.
Brooklyn Bedding is running a sitewide 30% off Presidents Day mattress sale when you use the code PRES30. That means you can get the Brooklyn Bedding mattress for only $933. The Brooklyn Bedding Signature mattress is a CNET favorite with three firmness levels and a supportive hybrid design. You can save on other Brooklyn Bedding mattresses like the cooling Aurora Luxe or Sedona Elite. The Brooklyn Bedding Presidents Day sale ends on Feb. 19.
Saatva mattresses are a little more expensive than the average bed, but that’s because of the hefty durability and quality of the beds. Saatva is also running a Presidents Day sale of up to $600 off. The fan-favorite Saatva Classic mattress is $300 off the original $1,995 price tag. It’s not the biggest sale you’ll see during Presidents Day, but Saatva beds offer a level of luxury that you can’t get from just any bed out there
Purple is running up to $800 off mattresses and base sets across the site for Presidents Day. However, the savings will depend on the mattress you’re looking at. For example, you can get the Purple mattress for $1,099 instead of $1,499. The Purple Rejuvenate is on sale for $4,995, $500 off the MSRP.
Some of the more luxurious Purple mattresses are pretty expensive, so it’s nice to see a couple hundred off those high price tags.
If you’ve been curious about Helix Sleep’s extensive mattress collection, now is a good time to buy. For Presidents Day, Helix is running a 25% off sitewide sale with a free bedroom bundle if you buy a mattress. A bedroom bundle includes 2 Dream pillows, a sheet set and a mattress protector. I think this is a solid deal because a mattress protector from Helix retails for $79.

Is Presidents Day a good day to buy a mattress?
Surprisingly enough, Presidents Day is one of the best times to buy a mattress during the year. It’s the first big mattress sale day of the year, and it generally rivals any sale you’ll see during other big holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Though it depends on the brand, you could see up to 50% off your next mattress.
How much should you pay for a good bed?
Mattress prices range based on the quality of materials, size and durability of the bed. The average cost of online mattresses falls between $800 to $1,200. Even within this range, there will be differences in construction, quality and life expectancy. However, the full price range for mattresses is far wider than that. There are budget mattresses for under $500 and luxury mattresses for well over $2,500. No matter your budget, you can find a bed in your price range.
Mattress sales like Presidents Days are a great way to offset the price of your next bed and get a high-quality bed for less.
