The best mattress deals for Amazon Prime Day 2021 — deals, shopping tips, and more
If you’ve been on the fence about trying out a bed-in-a-box, Amazon Prime Day 2021 offers lucrative discounts to help you take the plunge. This year’s Prime Day event runs from June 21 to June 22 and it’s a perfect time to buy a mattress.
Not only do the deals on Amazon offer great savings for Prime members, but you can expect other retailers — including direct-to-consumer brands like Casper, Leesa, and Dreamcloud — to offer their own sales to compete with the event. No matter what mattress you’re in the market for, it’s likely you’ll find savings of a couple hundred dollars during Amazon Prime Day.
As Prime Day is on the horizon, we’ll continue to update this guide with the best deals. For now, check out our coverage of the best mattress deals happening now for the most up-to-date information on mattress deals.
When shopping for a mattress, you’ll want to consider any medical conditions you may have, your ideal sleep position, body size, and preference. Side sleepers tend to prefer a softer mattress, while back sleepers, stomach sleepers, heavy people, and those with back pain need the support of a firmer mattress to bring their spine into proper alignment. If you share a bed with someone who has wildly different sleep preferences than you, you may benefit from a Split King mattress or an adjustable air bed like the Sleep Number 360 i8 Smart Bed.
Based on rigorous testing and research, our favorite mattress, the Dreamcloud Premier Hybrid Mattress, is just under $1,400. But, our best budget option, Zinus, is often available on Amazon for less than $350.
You may find peace of mind in going to a store to lay down on a mattress before you buy, but in our experience it takes several nights of sleeping on a mattress to know if it’s right nfor you. Online retailers can deliver mattresses right to your door and offer lengthy risk-free trial periods so you can give your bed a realistic shake before committing.
Amazon Prime Day is an exclusive shopping event where everything from mattresses to coffee machines goes on sale. This one-day event grew in popularity and is now a 48-hour online deal-dash, so be sure to have Amazon as your prime (no pun intended) tab in June if you plan on shopping the deals.
Amazon Prime Day 2021 will run from midnight PDT on June 21 through June 22. Competing retailers like Walmart and Target will also be holding their own sales during that time.
Yes, you have to have Prime-member status in order to qualify for the various deals, but if you’re not ready to commit to a full membership, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial to shop the sale. Sign up below so you don’t miss out.
