There are lots of Memorial Day sales flying around this weekend, but if you need a new mattress urgently then these five deals are the ones I'd suggest – some ship within 24 hours. My favorite sale is up to 50% off mattresses at DreamCloud Sleep, with a queen DreamCloud hybrid reduced to $665.

That's a competitive discount on one of this year's best mattresses for all sleepers seeking a cooler bed with enhanced lumbar support. It's also the one we recommend to people who like the look of the Saatva Classic, our number one hybrid mattress, but have a smaller budget – the DreamCloud is $1,000 cheaper in a queen compared to the Saatva (save $400 on the Saatva Classic at Saatva). 

Every Memorial Day mattress sale featured below comes with free shipping within 24 hours to 2 days of your order being placed, so if you need a new bed urgently, you can count on these...

What is the average shipping time  for a mattress?

Shipping times vary depending on what mattress brand you opt for. Typically we expect the best mattress in a box brands to ship sooner and arrive within 2-3 days of you placing your order. This is because they’re already vacuum packed and boxed and just waiting for the courier to collect. 

Higher-end mattress brands such as the Saatva Classic are made to order which means that they do take a little longer to ship as they’re pre-made and not sitting in storage. You can read more about their delivery process during our Saatva Classic mattress review

It is worth noting that the shipping times stated by mattress brands are just averages and you’ll only get an accurate shipping time once you’ve placed your order as times may vary on your location. 

Some companies may also offer expedited shipping for an additional fee. It’s always worth checking a companies website to see whether they have any special offers on regarding shipping as there are some brands that include white glove delivery with their products, which means the delivery company will take it to a room of your choice and also take care of the packaging.
