Seeking the best Bear mattress deals? We have them all for you right here. This month is highlighted by a 30% off sitewide sale (opens in new tab) – just use coupon code DEAL30 at checkout. Better yet, you'll score a pair of the brand's Cloud Pillows for free with any mattress purchase, a $100 value. That includes money off the Bear Original mattress, which we just tested for ourselves –  read our Bear Original mattress review to learn how we got on with it.

If you're looking for larger savings still, the cooling Bear Pro mattress is 50% off (opens in new tab) as part of a final sale closeout with no coupon required. That knocks the price of a queen to $795 (from $1,590). However, there's no trial period included, nor will you be able to return or exchange it. But you will get a 5-year warranty plus a pair of free pillows.

As with all the best mattress brands, Bear offers a mattress trial (120 nights) with all of its non-closeout merchandise, along with a limited lifetime warranty. And if it's not a new mattress you need, Bear's 30% off sale is also valid on pillows, bed bases, bedding, and mattress protectors.

Final sale -
The Bear Pro is exempt from Bear's sitewide 30% off sale, but that's because it's half-off instead. This 5-layer foam mattress emphasizes cooling comfort thanks to gel- and copper-infused foams that work together to wick away moisture and draw away body heat. Note that this is a final sale item, so it can't be returned or exchanged. And instead of a lifetime warranty, it comes with a 5-year limited warranty. However, you'll still get a couple of free pillows.

Which Bear mattress should you buy?

There are currently four Bear mattresses to choose from: 

The Bear Original mattress is the brand's entry-level option. It retails for between $748 and $1,622, although you'll seldom ever pay full price thanks to regular sales. features three layers of memory foam and suits any sleep position. A hybrid version of the Bear Original exists, which adds a layer of 6-inch, individually-wrapped coils.

The Bear Pro mattress features more enhanced cooling tech than the Original and therefore costs more. It has an extra layer of copper foam and features a gel layer. If you're on the hunt for a cooling mattress but don't want to give up the hugging sensation of foam, you'll want to check this one out, although it's currently part of a closeout sale which suggests the brand may be phasing it out.

For extra edge support and a more traditional spring feel, the Bear Hybrid mattress offers a more "luxury hotel mattress feel". While it costs far more than Bear's full-foam options, it's roughly what you'd expect to pay for an upper-mid-range hybrid mattress. (A queen retails for $1,732 before discounts.)

The latest addition to the lineup is the Bear Elite Hybrid mattress. This is the brand's premium option, offering three varying levels of firmness, a cool-to-the-touch phase-change top cover and 5-zoned ergonomic support. Prices start at $1,721 for a twin before any coupons.

If you're unsure of which Bear mattress to buy, you can take the brand's sleep quiz (opens in new tab) to find out which model will best suit your needs and budget.

Bear Original Mattress

The cheapest Bear mattress you can buy

Sizes: 7 (twin to split king) | Firmness (1-10): 7 (medium-firm) | Depth: 10 inches | Turn: No | Material: Foam and memory foam | Trial: 120 nights | Warranty: Lifetime | RRP: $748 - $1,622

An affordable foam mattress
Suits all types of sleepers
Great motion isolation
Not particularly cooling
Some may find it too firm

The Bear Original is a 10-inch, 3-layer foam mattress. It includes a base layer of supportive foam to prevent sagging and create a medium-firm finish, a layer of Bear Dynamic Foam to alleviate pressure and provide support, and a top layer of cooling gel-infused memory foam to help draw away heat. 

In our Bear Original mattress review, we found it comfortable to sleep on regardless of whether we rested on our back, front or side. (But lighter individuals may need time to break it in as it's on the firmer side.) Despite the gel-infused foam layer and a breathable quilt cover, it's not particularly cooling. However, the Bear Original is aces when it comes to edge support and motion isolation.

This mattress comes in six sizes, from twin to Cal king, as well as a split king option. Like most mattresses, the Bear Original has not been immune to inflation-induced cost increases, but it's still rather affordable – especially considering its frequent sales. Right now, a queen is marked down to $699 (regularly $998.)

Bear Pro Mattress

A great cooling mattress with copper-infused foam

Sizes: 7 (twin to split king) | Firmness (1-10): 6.5 (medium-firm) | Depth: 12 inches | Turn: No | Material: Foam and memory foam | Trial: N/A | Warranty: 5 years | RRP: $1,364 - $2,930

Great for hot sleepers
Designed for muscle relief
Contains copper (anti-microbial)
Limited edge support
May be phased out soon

The Bear Pro mattress is ideal for providing pressure relief and a cool night's sleep. It's particularly good for athletes and side and back sleepers should benefit from its extra layer of comfort and support. Its copper foam layer works to diffuse heat in the night, and it's also an effective antimicrobial, so you don't have to worry about any nasties in your mattress. (But you'll still want to wrap it in a mattress protector.)

Available in twin to Cal king (plus a split king), this mattress retails from $1,364. However, a current closeout sale is knocking 50% off the MSRP, dropping the starting price to $682. Of course, this comes with a few caveats. You won't be able to return or exchange the mattress. It also comes with a 5-year warranty, as opposed to the lifetime warranty other Bear mattresses come with. 

It's likely Bear is phasing this model out, hence the steep markdown. But their loss will be your gain if you want a serviceable all-foam cooling mattress at a remarkably low price.

Bear Hybrid Mattress

Bear's best-selling mattress

Sizes: 7 (twin to split king) | Firmness (1-10): 7 (medium-firm) | Depth: 13 inches | Turn: No | Material: Foam, memory foam and coils | Trial: 120 nights | Warranty: Lifetime | RRP: $1,298 - $2,796

Reinforced edge support
Great temperature regulation
Balance of firm and plush
It's expensive
Some find it too soft

The Bear Hybrid mattress is currently the brand's best-seller. Topped with cooling gel foam and a transitional layer for added support, this mattress also features an edge coil system, with individually encased springs for a classic coil feel. Underneath these coils lies a layer of supportive base foam to take the pressure off your bed frame. 

Although all Bear mattresses feature some sort of cooling technology, the Bear Hybrid claims that its coils will transfer heat 28% better than memory foam to keep you cool through the night. It's also better on edge support thanks to its edge coil system, and it's Greenguard Gold Certified for having fewer harmful chemicals. 

It's not the priciest of Bear's offerings, but it's close to the top of the list. A queen retails for $1,732 before discounts. If you're seeking something more supportive and cooling than foam alone, the Bear Hybrid could be what you need.

Bear Elite Hybrid Mattress

Bear's top-of-the-line mattress

Sizes: 7 (twin - split king) | Firmness (1-10): 5 (soft), 6 (medium) or 7 (firm) | Depth: 14 inches | Turn: No | Material: Foam, memory foam, encased coils and reinforced edge coils | Trial: 120 nights | Warranty: Lifetime | RRP: $1,721 - $3,565

Comes in three firmness levels
Phase-changing cover
Superior edge support
Bear's priciest mattress yet
May be too tall for shorter people

If you want Bear's most premium bed, here it is – the Bear Elite Hybrid. Released in 2022, the Elite Hybrid aims to provide superior cooling, top-tier edge support and excellent motion isolation so couples can sleep soundly. It's also the only one of Bear's mattresses to offer varying levels of firmness. You can choose from a soft, medium or firm feel. 

This lofty 14-inch bed consists of six layers, ranging from copper-infused foam (for cooling) to dynamic transition foam (for pressure relief). There's also a layer of encased pocketed coils for balanced support, as well as reinforced edge coils so you can take up as much space as possible and still feel secure. On top is a phase-changing hand-quilted cushion cover that's cool to the touch.

Naturally, all of these enhanced features come at a cost, even when it's on sale. A queen Bear Elite Hybrid is currently discounted to $1,478. But if you're after the best bed Bear has to offer, it'll surely be worth the investment.
