GoodBed helps you find the best mattress for you, whether online or in a local store. If you choose to buy a product through the links on this site, we earn a small referral fee that supports our work at no cost to you. Here's more info about how it all works.

Labor Day is one of the best times to save money on a mattress purchase – but on any given holiday, some retailers offer much better deals than others. We've parsed all the online sales and discounts and ranked each one relative to the best deals we've ever seen from that brand. Happy hunting!

 

What are the best Labor Day mattress sales in 2019?

Shopping Locally: If you'd prefer to shop at a local store or try your mattress before buying it, make sure to check whether there is a GoodBed Trusted Retailer in your area. We've hand-picked these stores for their great service and prices. And perhaps best of all, we'll give you an extra $50 Cash Back (free!) if you shop at any of these stores. This Cash Back comes from us – so is on top of any and all Labor Day discounts and/or sale prices that you get from the store – and is a deal you can't get anywhere else. All you need to do is get a Cash Back Code from GoodBed.com before making your purchase, which you will then use to redeem this offer after your purchase.

Shopping Online: For shopping the online mattress brands, scroll down for a curated a list of the best deals we're seeing over the Labor Day holiday of 2019. We've been tracking the mattress category longer than anyone, so unlike any other list, ours is sorted based on how good each deal is relative to the best deals we've ever seen from each brand. Of course, this list is only a fraction of the mattress deals available right now, so if you're looking for the best available deal on a brand that isn't shown here, click here to see the full list of all the online mattress deals available right now. If you've taken the GoodBed Quiz, that list will even be sorted in order of the best matches for you personally.

Is Labor Day the best time to buy a mattress?

For a surprisingly large number of Americans, Labor Day weekend has become THE time to buy a new bed.

Based on historical trends, we estimate that Americans will purchase over 2 million mattresses over the 2019 Labor Day holiday sale period¹ — amounting to roughly $1.7 billion in total sales volume, plus several hundred million dollars in mattress-related accessories (sheets, pillows, etc.). To put this in perspective, this will be more than 6 times the amount that will be spent on hot dogs during this same period of time (!).

GoodBed's data for the past 10 years shows that of all the mattress shopping holidays, Labor Day is consistently the highest velocity mattress-buying period of the year, with the 18-day sale period equating to roughly 10% of all annual mattress purchases.  Of this, about 30% of these purchases will take place over the 3 days of the holiday weekend itself. This amounts to over 100,000 mattresses per day over the full 18 days, with a peak activity level of over 200,000 mattresses per day during the 3 days of the actual holiday weekend. Labor Day itself (Monday, September 2, 2019) will amount to roughly $200 million in total mattress purchases.

Of course, the reasons for Labor Day's mattress dominance are partially driven by people moving into new homes at this time of year to coincide with the start of schools or new jobs. But mattress retailers also amplify these trends by advertising some of their biggest discounts during this period. Note, however, that there are discounts and promotions happening throughout the year, and it will really vary by retailer as to when you're most likely to see their best deals. No matter what time of year you're shopping, you can always visit our full list of the best online mattress deals that are available for each brand right now.

 

How to Shop the Labor Day Mattress Sales

To quickly narrow the field down to the options that will best meet your unique needs, start by taking our personalized Mattress Match Quiz. We start by asking about your physical characteristics, preferred sleeping positions, and health needs, then move to your comfort and feature preferences. Why? Because no mattress is a good mattress for everyone. For example, a mattress that’s awesome for a 225-pound stomach sleeper will often result in pain and discomfort for a 150-pound side sleeper, and vice versa. This 3-minute quiz is the best way to shop across brands and stores to hone in on the products that merit further research for you. From there, check out our in-depth editorial coverage of those products to determine which ones are really the best for you. Once you've narrowed down to a personal mattress short-list, then you can shop for the best available deal right now, or use guides like this to gauge whether it might make more sense to come back here some time in the next couple months to complete your purchase.

One of the biggest mistakes shoppers make when trying to save money is to buy a bed because it’s on sale, only to discover later that it doesn’t suit their personal needs and preferences – this is probably the most common way to waste money when buying a mattress. So, before hitting the stores or poking around the online sales, you’ll save time and frustration by arming yourself with a short list of mattress brands and models that are going to fit your personal support needs, comfort preferences, and features priorities. Out of the many hundreds on the market, only a handful are going to stand above the rest in terms of how well they do that...

¹ In estimating Labor Day mattress sales in 2019, we looked at the 18-day period from August 23rd, 2019 through September 9th, 2019. This represents the typical 18-day promotional period over which most Labor Day mattress discounts will run — starting 1 full week before the beginning of the holiday weekend, and finishing 1 full week after the end of the holiday weekend.
