It may not be July just yet but as we get closer to the upcoming holiday there are some great discounts that are worth considering making now a perfect time to shop early and bag yourself a new bed just in time for Independence Day. 

The best mattress brands have kicked off their July 4th sales early this year and I’ve scoured the internet to find you some of the best beds with epic discounts you can buy now. These include mattresses from Tempur-Pedic who have $500 off their Tempur-Pedic ProBreeze meaning you can have a super cool summer and the DreamCloud Hybrid which has a cool 50% off bringing the cost of a queen down to just $665.

And they’re not the only ones, I’ve found five of the best 4th July mattress sales for you to take advantage of today. We are not expecting to see lower prices between now and Independence Day and probably won’t see prices as low until the next major sales holiday, Labor Day. So if you’re in need of a new mattress before the end of summer why hang around?

Are the 4th of July mattress sales any good?

The 4th of July mattress sales is your last real chance to bag yourself a bargain bed before the end of the summer. But are the sales any good? Mattress brands don’t discount their beds as low for Independence Day as they do for other major holidays. However,  if you need a new mattress now, you won’t see prices get any lower until Labor Day in September. 

As well as dollar and percentage off discounts, it’s also worth noting that some brands offer freebies, such as pillows, bedding bundles accessories, which extend your savings further.
