Presidents Day mattress sales: What to expect

Historically, most folks wait for a Presidents Day sale at places like Pottery Barn to upgrade their old mattresses, furniture and cozy bedding must-haves like weighted blankets. Retailers use the three-day weekend to promote their biggest deals, making Presidents Day one of the biggest shopping holidays of the year.

Invest in yourself and pick up a new mattress that complements your sleeping style while they’re available at a deep discount. Shop around for other great deals, like savings on the best pajamas. Check out some of our favorite styles like silk pajamas or the ultra-flattering Lake Pajamas. Or, take the opportunity to upgrade your home theater thanks to Presidents Day TV deals.

What to consider when buying a mattress

There are a few things to consider when purchasing a mattress. For back sleepers, coil mattresses are the best mattress choice. They provide firm support, whereas a softer option, like memory foam, benefits side sleepers by cradling common pressure points.

For eco-friendly sleepers, an organic, non-toxic mattress is a natural alternative to traditional memory foam. Organic mattresses meet rigorous standards including the certified absence of heavy metals and PVC.

Body temperature is another factor. Hot sleepers should invest in a cooling mattress or cooling mattress topper for maximum comfort. Take control of your night sweats by investing in a pair of cooling pajamas—like the editor-tested Cozy Earth pajamas (available in new spring shades)—or cooling sheets. We recommend Cozy Earth’s sheets thanks to their bamboo viscose fabric that wicks moisture and avoids bunching.

For extra-hot sleepers, consider stocking up on other cooling essentials like bed cooling systems, cooling pillows and cooling blankets. Some brands offer cooling weighted blankets for anxious sleepers.
