Whether you're shopping for a new mattress or browsing for a new pillow, Prime Day mattress deals are a great opportunity to trade in your old bed for one featured in our best mattress guide. There is a small catch, however. While there will be good beds to be found on Amazon — check out our guide to the best mattresses on Amazon for our top picks — that isn't always the best place to find great mattress sales, even when Prime Day is underway.
Mattress manufacturers like Tempur-Pedic, Nectar and Purple tend to undercut even the best Prime Day mattress deals that Amazon offers. So what should you buy from Amazon? Generally speaking, Amazon is a good retailer for deals on no-frills mattresses. Amazon offers great Prime Day mattress deals from brands such as Lucis and Zinus. Likewise, the e-comm giant is great at offering discounts on off-brand bedding, including deals on its own Amazon Basics line of bedding.
So we're rounding up some of the best deals you can still get right now.
Best Prime Day mattress deals
Nectar: was $499 now $359 @ Amazon
Editor's Choice! Our favorite mattress is on sale ahead of Prime Day. In our Nectar mattress review, we called the Editor's Choice mattress a tremendous value for the price. We found it very comfortable (thanks to its five layers of memory foam), and it offers excellent pressure relief around your shoulders, hips and back. Bonus points for offering an impressive 365-night trial and a forever guarantee. You can get the twin mattress for $359 (was $499) or the queen for $699 (was $899). Note: Nectar offers the same price, and we recommend buying directly from Nectar as you'll usually get better support from the manufacturer as well as the option to bundle a discounted bedding set.

Amazon Prime Day mattress topper deals
Although the (actual) Prime Day mattress deals are underwhelming, there are some very strong offers on toppers. Some of our best mattress topper picks are heavily discounted for Prime subscribers, and there are also some models that we haven't reviewed but which look good quality and are a downright steal at the moment. Here's our pick of the topper deals:
Tempur-Adapt Topper + cooling cover: was
$399 now from $339 at Amazon
Tempur's luxurious mattresses run into the thousands. No wonder this topper – made from the same distinctive Tempur Material – is so popular. For Prime Day there's up to a massive 52% off the queen size (cheaper than it has ever been), and smaller discounts on other sizes. This 3-inch topper comes with a premium cooling cover and is perfect for adding that soothing, body sink-in feel to a too-firm mattress.
Check other retailers: a couple of sizes are cheaper if you buy direct from Tempur, where there's 20% off with free sleep accessories.
Casper Comfy mattress topper: was
$199 now from $139.30 at Amazon
The Casper Comfy Mattress Topper is perfect for adding plushness to a firm mattress, with its two-layer foam design and flexible knit cover.

Sleep Innovations dual-layer mattress topper: was
$110 now from $89 at Amazon

The biggest discounts are on the queen and king sizes.
Finding the best Prime Day mattress deals in 2023
There are various mattress deals happening this Prime Day. However, it's important to remember our top shopping tips as you browse through the sales:
- Take advantage of coupons: Coupons can help you save big on mattress purchases. For instance, DreamCloud coupons and Nectar promo codes can shave hundreds off your bed or bedding purchase. Likewise, Tempur Pedic promo codes can help you save on our favorite temperature-regulating mattresses. Many mattress manufacturers accept coupons during the checkout process, which is another reason why you'll find better prices direct from manufacturers rather than via Amazon. (While Amazon does accept coupons, many mattress coupons will only work on the manufacturer's site.)
- Never pay full price: Labor Day, Black Friday/Cyber Monday, Memorial Day and July 4th are generally the best time of the year for mattress deals. (If we had to pick one holiday — Black Friday/Cyber Monday would be the one we recommend.) However, even if you're nowhere near a major holiday, most mattress companies offer mattress deals year-round. So you should never pay full price for any mattress.
- Know your return policy: Buying a new mattress can be tricky. Perhaps you're relying on user reviews or word of mouth. Or maybe you've already tried the mattress and have finally found the right mattress deal. Either way, you should always know the mattress' return policy should you have to return it. Some companies offer 100-night trials with free return shipping and no penalty fees, whereas others offer 18-month trials with similar shipping policies.
