Best Innerspring Mattresses for $800 or Less
You don't have to pay a lot to get a comfortable innerspring mattress
Think a great innerspring mattress costs a small fortune? Think again.
In Consumer Report’s rigorous lab tests of more than 130 innerspring mattresses, we found a number of comfortable queen-size models at affordable prices.
At CR we buy and test queen-size mattresses from well-known brands such as Beautyrest, Sealy, Serta, Stearns & Foster, and Tempur-Pedic, and from relatively new players, including Avocado, Casper, Leesa, Reverie, and Tuft & Needle.
Using lab equipment and human test subjects, we evaluate how well a mattress supports the body for both back and side sleepers, how easily sleepers can shift their weight without disturbing a partner, and how well the mattress keeps its shape over time. For that last test, on durability, we pass a 308-pound roller over each mattress 30,000 times to simulate the typical life span of eight to 10 years.
