Suffice it to say, finding a comfortable mattress that fits your sleeping position is essential – and replacing it every seven to 10 years. This is a significant investment, which is why driving sales is critical for mattress buyers on a budget. And there’s no better time than right now to do just that, thanks to all the mattress sales going on these days, courtesy of Amazon Prime Day.
Despite the fact that a mattress may seem like something you’d want to touch and feel (and snuggle with) before you buy it, it’s actually very possible to buy one online with no regrets. Fast bed shipping in a box and extended trial periods (during which you can test the mattress and send it back if it is less than ideal) are now commonplace among mattress companies that sell online, including many who are doing Prime Day sales today and tomorrow. Since mattresses are often priced high, even 20 and 30 percent off offers really go a long way.
To start, consider your typical sleeping position and the level of firmness that would best support you in that position. “Sleepers can [typically] choose whatever firmness feels most comfortable, as your weight is evenly distributed during sleep. If you are a stomach sleeper, choose a medium to firm mattress to support your spine and keep your hips and shoulders in line. And side sleepers should opt for a softer mattress, which will help relieve pressure on the shoulder, hip and arm,” orthopedic and spinal surgeon Gbolahan Okubadejo, MD, FAAOS, told Well+Good.
Below, we’ve rounded up the best Prime Day mattress sales that fit all of the above categories, plus a few for people whose main sleep concern is staying cool and sweat-free all night.
