Stop Punishing Yourself: It’s Time to Invest in a High-Quality Mattress

Don't worry, it's (mostly) not as expensive as you think. 

At Slickdeals, we work hard to help you find the best deals. To do this, some of the products featured here are from our partners, who may provide us with compensation. However, this doesn’t influence our opinions. Our views are our own.

Getting a good night’s sleep is important. There’s nothing worse than restless nights or waking up feeling sore. The only way to avoid these situations is to invest in a high-quality mattress.

At the same time, just thinking about making such a big purchase can be overwhelming. Trust me, I get it. I avoided doing it for years.

I recently moved and committed to a new bed, but the process wasn’t nearly as painful as putting up with my over 20-year-old mattress. Even through the coronavirus pandemic, mattress companies are moving forward with contactless deliveries and up to 365-night in-home trials.

That’s not all, there are tons of can’t-miss sales happening now proving it’s the perfect time to find the right mattress for you.

Top Reasons to Buy a High-Quality Mattress

1. Protecting your Health

Avocado Green Mattress

Regular Price: Starting at $899

You never know what you’ll get when you opt for a cheap mattress. However, it’s worth knowing that some are made out of toxic chemicals that can reportedly lead to asthma, allergies and more negative health effects.

Avocado, however, is committed to using only natural materials. All of the company’s mattresses like the popular Avocado Green Mattress are made with organic latex, wool and cotton, which is the reason for the higher price tags.

Deal Tip: Luckily, there are several promotions going on from now until May 4th. Customers can save $175 on every mattress purchase with code ORGANIC175 or receive two free pillows ($198 value) with code 2FREEPILLOWS. Note: These offers cannot be combined, so choose wisely.

2. You’re Probably not Sleeping Well (and Waking People Up)

The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress (Queen)

Sale Price: $799 | Regular Price: $1,198

Providing the ultimate comfort for the best night’s sleep — especially for couples — is Nectar’s specialty. The brand’s queen-size quilted memory foam mattress on sale now at $799 minimizes motion transfer, so you don’t have to worry about waking up your partner. Additionally, the design has non-stop airflow to keep you cool throughout the night. If you and your special someone need more room, there are also larger options available with the King and Cal King both priced at $999.

Intrigued and want to try one out as a pair? Nectar does 365-night home trials with free shipping within two business days.

Deal Tip: While supplies last, Nectar is also gifting mattress purchasers a complimentary mattress protector, sheets set and premium pillows. In total, that’s $399 of free accessories.

3. Your Mattress is Over Eight Years Old

DreamCloud’s Luxury Hybrid Mattress

Sale Price: Starting at $799 | Regular Price: Starting at $999

Don’t make my mistake and sleep on a mattress that’s decades old. Typically, mattresses are only built to last between five and 10  years. If your time is up, step up your game and treat yourself to DreamCloud’s luxurious hybrid mattress that’s currently discounted from $799.

Plus, the company has a lifetime warranty. “If DreamCloud becomes damaged from normal use anytime during your ownership, we will replace your mattress at no charge. It doesn’t matter if it’s 100 years from now. We designed DreamCloud to outlast heavy long term use, just like quality products should,” according to the site’s FAQs.

Deal Tip: Take advantage of DreamCloud’s Patriot’s Day Sale that gets you $200 off any mattress and a free luxury duvet. Just shop, there’s no promo code necessary.

4. Latex Allergy

Joybed LX

Regular Price: Starting at $495

Most low-grade mattresses are created with latex as it’s affordable and durable, but this is obviously a problem if you’re allergic. Do your research and take the time to understand what goes into your bed.

Joybed mattresses are budget-friendly starting at $495 and are designed with natural materials like cotton and wool. Moreover, there’s a breakdown online of what makes up each layer and customers can opt for a risk-free 120-night trial at home.

Deal Tip: There’s free five-day delivery and flexible 0% interest financing for those interested.

6. Get Something that Lasts

Hästens Mattresses

Regular Price: Starting at $10,000

Do you want to really go all out? Consider the Drake-approved Swedish brand Hästens. While the bed in the star’s Toronto mansion is around $150,000, according to Linus Adolfsson who owns stores in New York City and Los Angeles, Hästens has luxe styles starting at $10,000. “Buying a bed one time in your life is a financial investment and it’s better than buying a bed for $2,000 every five years,” he told Slickdeals. “A Hästens bed is built to last 50 years, so you’re saving money in the long-term.”

Due to the pandemic, all Hästens U.S. locations are closed. Typically, you can walk into the brand’s store for a spa-like experience to try the mattress of your choice. Then, it takes around 45 days for your handmade purchase to be completed. If that’s not luxury, I don’t know what is.

6. You Need More Space

The GhostBed Mattress (King to Split King Sizes)

Sale Price: Starting at $938 | Regular Price: Starting at $1,250

Your height and how much you move in your sleep can call for a larger sized mattress. While some companies can be limited, GhostBed has memory foam mattresses that go all the way up to the Split King size, which includes 2 Twin XL mattresses. The price for the brand’s king sizes have been lowered starting at $938 for a limited time, so don’t wait too long to order.

Deal Tip: GhostBed’s discounts have been applied to its entire stock, so make sure to check out the rest of the site for all kinds of sales.

7. Sweet Accessories

Sunbeam Heated Mattress Pad (Queen Size)

Sale Price: $30 | Regular Price: $60

Once you’ve decided on your high-quality mattress, why not add premium pillows or a mattress pad to it? Thanks to the heads up by Slickdeals user JuJuFrankenbean, you won’t have to spend much more on these extra accessories. There’s a Sunbeam heated mattress pad available at Walmart in a queen size at 50% off for only $30.
