What Prime Day memory foam mattress sales to expect

Foam mattresses, which have grown quite popular because they are so easy to have shipped and delivered, will probably be subject to some excellent deals during Prime Day. Based on what we’ve seen in the last few years, look for these brands to have generous sales of anywhere from 25% to 50% off; but act fast because the sales will only last for 48 hours. Amazon carries a lot of brands, some well-known, some not so much (including, of course, its own Amazon Basics Memory Foam Mattress), so watch for specials or markdowns on the following:

How to choose a new foam mattress 

As we mentioned, what’s great about most (but not all) foam mattresses, is that their materials are very malleable, so it’s easy to roll them up tightly, stuff the mattress in a box, and ship them just about anywhere. Just unbox them and allow them to breathe for a day or more so they can expand completely and allow any unpleasant smells to dissipate. Choosing a mattress will depend on different factors such as what type of sleeper you or your partner are and what your budget is for a new mattress. If you’re a side sleeper you’ll need a mattress that will support your neck and shoulders and can be more flexible. If you’re a back sleeper or need to alleviate back pain,  you’ll need a mattress that is more firm.

Watch for latex, polyurethane, and memory foam options. Latex foam can be produced with natural latex, which is harvested from rubber trees, offering a more sustainable option; but it may also be synthetically produced from petrochemicals. Be sure to check if that’s a priority.  Some companies focus on only natural latex. Latex foam mattress companies also say that it’s less likely to “sink in” or “bottom out” throughout your sleep, maintaining constant support that doesn’t soften as it warms up. It’s also said to be one of the most durable types of foam available.

Even “regular” mattresses often include a layer of polyurethane foam to provide a more solid core. Polyurethane foam offers more resistance to body impression, so while it’s firmer than other foams, it may resist the loss of height that leads to mattresses getting more uncomfortable over time, staying in shape a lot longer. It also helps reduce change in mattress firmness, so where the materials become more compact over time, they often become firmer: A customer who chose a soft mattress may find it becoming less comfortable.
Memory foam itself was originally designed for NASA to be highly energy absorbent and soft. It molds to the body, evenly distributing your weight across the surface. While sleep comfort and preferences are highly subjective and personal, some say that memory foam’s pliable nature can help relieve painful pressure points. Memory foam may also make you less aware of the movements of your sleep partner.

Which one works for you? Luckily most modern mattress companies allow you to have a test period so you can sleep on it for a few nights to see if it really helps rest more soundly. If you’re feeling brave, you may even venture out to a brick-and-mortar mattress or home furnishings store to give a foam mattress a (very short) try.

Be sure to check out sites like Brooklyn Bedding or really any brand you’ve heard of, but that you don’t find on Amazon: they may also be offering competing deals next week.
