After Christmas mattress sales are now live. If your current bed has seen better days, you'll be able to find some great savings today. Better yet, several of the best mattress brands have either extended or brought back their Black Friday specials. 

Below are three year-end mattress sales we recommend you shop, evaluated based on the strength of their discounts, overall value, and brand reputation. If they don't have what you're looking for, however, we've also included a roundup of other great mattress sales taking place. Whether you want to upgrade to a cooling mattress or need an excellent mattress for side sleepers, you'll be able to find what you need at a discount.

For peace of mind, all of our top picks include a 365-night mattress trial plus a lifetime warranty. They're also from brands that our expert sleep testers have tried themselves.

Exclusive offer

Still, that means you can bring home a queen Saatva Classic mattress for $1,599 (was $1,999), which is one of the lowest prices we've seen for it this year. It comes in three firmness levels and is one of the best mattresses for back pain. Included are free white glove delivery, a 1-year trial, and a lifetime warranty. Note that the general Saatva sale (via this link (opens in new tab)) will be a better value if you spend over $3,000, as the discount is $450 off that way.

You'll get a 1-year sleep trial, free returns, and a lifetime warranty, as well.

Should you buy a mattress after Christmas?

After Christmas mattress sales are generally a good time to buy, with several brands reintroducing or extending Black Friday sales from the previous month. However, many manufacturers increase their retail prices right after Black Friday, so discounts now may not be as strong as they were a month ago.

We're officially at the mid-point between the two best times of year to buy a mattress: Black Friday and Presidents' Day. If you need a new mattress immediately, you'll be able to find plenty of solid deals in after Christmas sales. Otherwise, if you're able to hold out until mid-February, you're likely to score even lower prices come Presidents' Day mattress sales. 

Of course, if you're only looking to make your current bed more comfortable, we recommend browsing the best mattress topper deals.
