The Best Labor Day Mattress Sales for Getting Serious 3-Day Weekend Sleep

August 10, 2022 Off By Ian Burke

You know those scammers “psychics” on the boardwalk, who’ll run their clammy, nicotine-stained hands across your palm and tell you that you sometimes get upset with your parents and have someone in your life whose name starts with the letter M? Well, allow me to do a little cold read of my own on you, dear reader. I’m sensing… that your back is sometimes stiff upon waking up in the morning, and you often wake up feeling like you need more sleep. Was I right on the money? If so, then it might be wise to stop shelling out your hard-earned clams for psychic readings and invest in a new mattress and bedding instead. Lucky for you, a few of our favorite brands are having big-time Labor Day sales right now.

Whether you’re in search of an entirely new mattress and bed setup, or you’re just looking to swap out your light and breezy summer sheets for some heavier autumnal bedding, these deals and steals are ripe for the picking.


While you can’t make a tub of fire guac’ with what they have on offer, Avocado is a cult-fave mattress brand that slings a laundry list of environmentally friendly mattresses and bedding—and right now, five of the brand’s best-selling beds are on sale. Our pick: the Avocado Green Organic Mattress, which is easy on the planet, your back, and your wallet at 10% off with code LABORDAY. The mattress also features up to 1,414 individually tuned, tempered steel coils that float independently to reduce motion transfer, keep your back aligned, and distribute your weight more evenly.

Bear Mattress

We spy 30% off sitewide mattress deals at Bear, including free sleep accessories with code LD30 at checkout, just in time for us to enter our post-summer hibernation. The Bear Hybrid mattress, the brand’s best-seller, has a combo of copper-gel memory foam and a moisture-wicking cover to keep you from getting too toasty. Plus, every Bear mattress is GreenGuard Gold Certified, made in the USA, and comes with a 120-night free trial and  lifetime warranty.

Happy snoozin’.
