The best Presidents' Day mattress sales are happening now
Online mattress giant Nectar is offering up to 40% off mattresses for Presidents' Day. People who love the feel of real memory foam that moves slowly and hugs their curves won't want to miss this sale. Nectar mattresses are already affordable, but you'll be hard-pressed to beat $659 for the flagship all-foam Nectar mattress. The Nectar Hybrid is just $799 and the Nectar Premier is just $1,099.
Casper mattresses are already what we would consider affordable; The up to 30% off President's Day mattress sale is a great time to buy a Casper bed if you've had your eye on one. The Original Casper mattress is 15% off, down to $1,100. The Casper Wave Hybrid mattress is 30% off, which costs just $2,167.

DreamCloud's President's Day mattress sale is by far one of the most generous right now, with 50% off all mattresses. Most other brands average 20% to 35%, so this is probably one of the best options for the average person, especially pillow lovers.
Right now, you can get the DreamCloud Mattress for $665 and the DreamCloud Premier for $916. I really can't overstate how much of a deal this is.
Brooklyn Bedding is offering 30% off their sitewide Presidents Day mattress sale when you use the code PRES30. That means you can get the Brooklyn Bedding mattress for just $933. The Brooklyn Bedding Signature mattress is a CNET favorite with three firmness levels and a supportive hybrid design. You can save on other mattresses from Brooklyn Bedding, like the refreshing Aurora Luxe or Sedona Elite. The Brooklyn Bedding Presidents Day promotion ends on February 19th.
Saatva mattresses are a little more expensive than a regular bed, but this is due to the great durability and quality of the beds. Saatva is also running a President's Day sale with up to $600 off. The fan-favorite Saatva Classic mattress is $300 off its original price of $1,995. It's not the biggest sale you'll see during Presidents' Day, but Saatva beds offer a level of luxury you can't get in just any bed out there.
Purple is discounting up to $800 off mattresses and foundation sets sitewide for Presidents' Day. However, the savings will depend on the mattress you are looking for. For example, you can get the Purple mattress for $1,099 instead of $1,499. The Purple Rejuvenate is on sale for $4,995, $500 off the MSRP.
Some of the more luxurious purple mattresses are very expensive, so it's nice to see a few hundred discounts on those high price tags.

For Presidents' Day, Helix is offering 25% off sitewide with a free bedroom package if you purchase a mattress. A room package includes 2 Dream pillows, a set of sheets and a mattress protector. I think this is a solid deal because a Helix mattress protector retails for $79.

Is Presidents Day a good day to buy a mattress?
Surprisingly, Presidents' Day is one of the best times to buy a mattress all year. It's the first big mattress sale day of the year, and it usually rivals any promotion you'll see during other big holidays like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. While it depends on the brand, you could get up to 50% off your next mattress.
How much should you pay for a good bed?
Mattress prices vary depending on the quality of materials, size and durability of the bed. The average cost of mattresses online is between $800 and $1,200. Even within this range, there will be differences in construction, quality, and life expectancy. However, the total price range for mattresses is much wider than that. There are budget mattresses for under $500 and luxury mattresses for well over $2,500. No matter your budget, you can find a bed in your price range.
Mattress sales like Presidents Days are a great way to offset the price of your next bed and get a high-quality bed for less.
