A shopper examines a mattress in a showroom.

If you’ve been tossing and turning on a mattress that has seen better days, you might consider upgrading now through the holiday weekend.

“If you missed Memorial Day, some retailers will have similar sales for the Fourth of July, so you might get a second chance,” says Claudette Ennis, CR’s market analyst for mattresses. “And for those who don’t want to join the crowds at the mall, new bed-in-a-box contenders are making it easier to find discounts online.”

CR combed through advertised sales for savings on mattresses that performed well in Consumer Reports’ mattress tests and found a number of options, from brands including Avocado, Purple, Tuft & Needle, and more, that are worth a look.

Below, we’ve rounded up standout mattress sales we found that are available through the Fourth (with some going slightly beyond).

If a particular mattress you’re looking for isn’t on sale, look for promotions on the manufacturer’s website or try to haggle for a better price. (You can haggle with online retailers for a mattress deal, too.) See our comprehensive mattress ratings for specifics on more than 130 models.

The sales here are listed alphabetically by brand. We’ll continue to add worthy deals as we find them between now and the holiday.

Avocado Green
Avocado Green, a bed-in-a-box company and the maker of one of our highly rated innerspring mattresses, is offering $175 off any mattress purchase through July 8, 2019. Use the discount code ORGANIC175 on Avocado’s site. Military personnel can save an additional $50. The queen-size Avocado Green mattress, usually priced at $1,400, earns an Excellent rating in our support tests for average-sized side and back sleepers, large/tall side and back sleepers, and petite back sleepers. And it’s almost as good for petite side sleepers, making it an all-around good choice for many mattress shoppers.

Casper
Casper is offering 10 percent off every purchase with a mattress (to a limit of $500) using code STRIPES on its website. The brand’s flagship mattress is priced at $1,095 for a queen, so the promotion brings the price down to $985. CR paid $1,000 for the queen-size mattress we bought to test.

More on Mattresses

Casper’s The Casper earns an Excellent rating in CR’s tests for petite side- and back-sleeping support, and offers stellar support for average and large/tall side and back sleepers. It has a firmness score of 4 on our scale of 1 to 10.

Charles P. Rogers
At Charles P. Rogers, you can get a deal on the St. Regis mattress, now on sale for $809 through the holiday weekend. (CR paid $965 for the mattress we bought to test.) The St. Regis offers superb support for both petite side and back sleepers, and earns a Very Good support rating for average and large/tall back sleepers. The mattress gets a score of 6 on our firmness scale of 1 to 10.

Denver Mattress
One of the least expensive mattresses in our ratings is on sale for Independence Day: the Doctor's Choice Plush mattress, marked down to $664 for a queen. It's worth noting, though, that this mattress can sometimes be had at an even lower price—CR paid $500. The Doctor's Choice Plush is a great option for all body sizes and sleep styles as there's not really a weak point in terms of support. Note: If you can't pick it up in person, you'll pay $50 in shipping, whereas other mattresses brands may offer free shipping.

Lull
The bed-in-a-box company Lull has a deal for $150 off any size mattress on its website. In our tests, the queen-size Lull mattress, $800, delivers decent support for petite and average side sleepers and average and large/tall back sleepers. And it earns an Excellent support rating for petite back sleepers. This mattress is on the firmer side, with a 6 out of 10 on our firmness scale (of 1 to 10, with 10 being the firmest). Based on the deals we've seen advertised so far, this is among the cheaper mattresses you’ll find marked down between now and July Fourth.

Nectar
The Nectar mattress, from the bed-in-a-box company of the same name, is on our list of recommended foam mattresses. Nectar is currently offering $125 off a mattress, plus two free Nectar pillows, through the holiday weekend. That discount brings a queen-size Nectar down from $824 to $699. (We paid $697.) The Nectar earns a Very Good rating for petite and average side-sleeper support, and petite and average back-sleeper support. Worth noting: There are no grips on this foam mattress, so it might be a bit difficult to maneuver or rotate.

Purple
Purple is offering 10 percent off all of its mattresses for the Fourth, which equates to $100 off for a queen, for a price of $900 (CR paid $1,000). Purple's signature Purple mattress offers decent support to side and back sleepers of all sizes. It's a fairly soft mattress, earning a 3 out of 10 on our firmness scale (with 10 being the firmest). 

Tuft & Needle
If you’re interested in a Tuft & Needle mattress, you can get $150 off the company’s Mint mattress through July 7 on the company's website. The queen-size Mint Mattress, which CR paid the full $895 price for, earns a Very Good support rating for all sleep styles and body types. It’s on the softer side of our firmness scale, earning a 4 out of 10.

Tulo
This might be one of the least expensive mattresses you’ll find on sale for the Fourth of July. The Tulo Medium, currently on sale for $500 at Mattress Firm and on the Tulo website, is a winner for some but an also-ran for others. In CR's test, the support is mixed, depending on body type and sleep style. It earns an Excellent rating, though, in our durability tests, maintaining its support after a simulated eight to 10 years of use. CR paid $650 when we bought the mattress for our tests.
