4th of July mattress buying guide
The best mattress to buy this 4th of July depends on your unique sleep needs. In fact, there’s no best mattress for everyone. A few questions you should ask yourself so you can make the right choice:
How do you like your mattress to feel?
No one mattress type is better than another, but figuring out how you like your mattress to feel can guide you to the best mattress type for you. Innerspring mattresses feel pretty bouncy, while memory foam mattresses have no bounce at all and instead hug your body. Latex mattresses, meanwhile, feel like a combination of innerspring and memory foam, with some responsiveness and some contouring.
What’s your usual sleep position?
The answer to this question will help you determine which firmness option is right for you. Side sleepers do best on a softer mattress, while back sleepers should opt for a medium-firm mattress. Stomach sleepers need a firmer sleep surface for optimal spinal alignment.
Do you sleep with a partner and/or kids?
The more people (or animals) that sleep in your bed, the bigger you’ll want your bed to be. Queen- and king-size mattresses are ideal for couples and families, while full-size mattresses are good options for solo sleepers. (Check out our mattress size guide for more help figuring out which size is right for you.)
Do you have back pain?
If aches and pains keep you tossing and turning, then make sure you look for a mattress with added lumbar support. To ensure proper spinal alignment, a mattress should have stronger, firmer material in its center third, where most of your body weight lies.
Do you sleep hot?
Some mattress types sleep cooler than others. Innerspring and latex mattresses are very breathable, while traditional memory foam tends to sleep hot. If you like the feel of memory foam, then look for a mattress that’s infused with a cooling material like gel or graphite.
How much do you weigh?
Your body weight is a key consideration to keep in mind when shopping for a mattress. Innerspring, hybrid, and latex mattresses are all good options for people weighing 250 pounds or more. Memory foam, on the other hand, shouldn’t be your first choice if you’re heavier because it can make you feel “stuck” in the mattress.
Other mattress considerations
Once you know what type of mattress is best for you, do your research ahead of time so you know exactly when things go on sale. Make sure you do some comparison shopping while you’re at it.
Read reviews to see what customers have to say about mattress quality and customer service so you can be confident you’re getting a good product for the price.
Finally, read the fine print. You want to know what you’re getting into when it comes to delivery, home trial, return policy, and warranty.

Find the perfect mattress for you this July 4th weekend
What month are mattresses on sale?
Mattresses tend to go on sale in months when there are big holiday weekends, including February (Presidents’ Day), May (Memorial Day), 4th of July, Labor Day (September), and Black Friday and Cyber Monday (November/December). People tend to buy big-ticket items like mattresses more over long weekends because there’s plenty of time to do your research before spending money on a considered purchase.
When is the best time to buy a mattress?
Any time there’s a holiday weekend is a good time to buy a mattress. With promotions on holidays like Presidents Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Black Friday, you can expect to save between 10%-20% on a mattress.
Of course, it’s worth noting that you can still find good deals on mattresses outside of holiday weekends. When you buy a mattress online, you can expect to spend around 15% less than you would in a store, according to industry experts.
That’s because selling online eliminates retail store overhead, such as store rents and sales commissions. Online mattress companies can pass those savings onto you in the form of low prices every day.
When do 4th of July mattress sales start?
Most 4th of July mattress sales will start a few days before the holiday. This year, the 4th of July falls on a Monday, so you can expect sales to start around the first of the month, which is a Friday. Some sales may even be extended past the holiday, giving you plenty of time to shop.
Where are the best 4th of July mattress deals this year?
Many of the best mattress brands are holding 4th of July mattress sales this year. Regardless of where you shop, you can usually save 10%-20% on a mattress when you shop during a holiday promotion.
You can typically find the best prices on mattresses by shopping online. This will save you about 15% versus shopping in-store, according to industry experts.
Keep in mind that when you buy a mattress from a store, you end up paying for more than just the mattress. Stores have a wide range of costs they have to cover, including, rent, sales, and commissions—and those fees inevitably get worked into the price of the mattress.
Online mattress companies, like Saatva, eliminate the middleman by selling directly to you online. This allows them to sell their products for a consistently low price.
Are cheap mattresses worth it?
If you’re on a tight budget, then a cheap mattress—such as a bed in a box—might be a good option for you. However, light foam mattresses that are compressed into a box and shipped to your door wear out faster than other mattresses. That means you’ll have to replace your mattress sooner.
How much should I pay for a good mattress?
Mattress prices can vary a lot. Some mattresses cost just a few hundred dollars while others have price tags in the tens of thousands. (Yes, really.) A quality mattress made with premium materials generally costs between $1,000 and $3,500.
How do you know when it’s time to replace your mattress?
There are a few signs it’s time to get a new mattress. You may need a new one if:
- You’ve had your mattress for more than 10 years.
- You regularly wake up with back pain.
- Your mattress is stained or torn.
- Your allergies are acting up.
- You can feel your partner moving.
- You just can’t get comfortable.
