If you know you need to buy a mattress, I would always urge you to try your best to wait for Labor Day. Of all the sale-happy holidays, this is the biggest one of the year when it comes to upgrading your bedroom and it happens to be right around the corner, making it the ideal time to take the plunge and get a new bed. Virtually all the big-name brands like Casper, Sealy, and Tempur-Pedic and some of the new up-and-comers like Helix and Nectar are offering major discounts on some, if not all, their mattresses and bedding as well.
To help you more easily research your options and find the mattress of your dreams, Reviewed teamed up with Sleepopolis to bring you all the deals you should know about in one place.
Here are the 5 top mattress sales on the best mattresses:
The deal: You can save $100 on the Nectar mattress, and it comes with two free (and very comfy) pillows.
Nectar makes the best mattress Reviewed has tested. Their mattresses are lightweight and easy to install, and we recommend them if you’re looking for that classic memory foam feel.
