This will be my last post for today, but we’ll be updating our mattress deals live blog through the holiday weekend, so make sure to come back Saturday for more of the weekend’s best sales.
That said, this deal is a really good one. So like I mentioned earlier, Nectar makes the best memory foam mattress on the market. However, if you want a hybrid mattress — one with both memory foam and coils — then DreamCloud is the best value you’ll find. It’s Nectar’s sister brand but unlike Nectar, all DreamCloud mattresses are hybrid. If you can’t afford to spend $1,000+ on a new hybrid bed, DreamCloud is your absolute best alternative. (Make sure to read our DreamCloud Mattress review for the full details).

A good weighted blanket will not only leave you feeling cozy, but studies show it can also help you sleep better. There are different types on the market, but one of the best weighted blankets you can get comes from Brooklyn Bedding. Their dual therapy blanket has a removable duvet cover (which makes it easy to keep clean) and the blanket itself has two sides: a cozy/warm side and a tranquil cooling side, which is useful if you sleep warm like I do. Use coupon code “MEMORIAL30” to take 30% off all blankets.

If your mattress is in good shape, but you’d like to adjust the feel of your bed, your best bet is to get a mattress topper. These pads go on top of your bed and can make it feel firmer, softer, or even cooler. I used a cheap one on my old bed to make it more firm, and it definitely worked but keep in mind even the best mattress topper won’t replace the benefits of a new bed. That said, our fave mattress topper is the Tempur-Pedic Supreme. It uses three inches of NASA-developed Tempur material and a foam that hugs your body’s curves and adapts to your body temperature. It gives you a little bit of that Tempur-Pedic comfort (without having to buy a new bed).
Tempur-Topper Supreme (twin): was $299 now $179 @ Tempur-Pedic (opens in new tab)
Tempur-Topper Supreme (queen): was $399 now $239 @ Tempur-Pedic (opens in new tab)
I love my Nectar duvet! I bought it during a Black Friday sale two years ago and I think it’s perfect for any type of weather. It’s very lightweight, but it keeps me warm on frigid nights and keeps me cool on summer nights (with the help of my AC of course). It holds a spot in our list of best duvets, but keep in mind it tends to sell out fast. Also, it’s not on sale as much as it used to, so def take advantage of this Memorial Day deal. (Make sure to check out our Nectar duvet review for the full details on what we liked/disliked about the duvet).

I hate summer. One of the reasons is because I tend to heat up easily. If you’re like me, the Cocoon Chill Mattress is worth looking into. We called it the best budget cooling mattress for hot sleepers. To be fair, every mattress manufacturer says their mattress offers great airflow and/or cooling, but we loved the Cocoon Chill because it actually works and it’s a great value buy. For Memorial Day, you’ll get pillows and a sheet set bundle ($179 value) for free. If you want to get into the nitty-gritty of how the mattress performs, make sure to check out our Cocoon Chill Memory Foam Mattress review.
My parents are looking to adopt a dog next month and you can bet I’m gonna spoil him/her rotten with treats and….a Star Wars Dog bed! To be honest, I’m not even a Star Wars fan, but I just love this bed. It’s only $24 and if you buy 2, you’ll get a 3rd bed for free. Chewy has a bunch of BOGO promos on pet beds (as well as deals on standalone pet beds). You can check out the Star Wars Cat/Dog Bed for $24 via this Chewy link (opens in new tab).
If you don’t need a new mattress, but are still curious about this weekend’s sales — I highly, highly recommend the Tempur-Pedic Cloud Adjustable Pillows. I bought them about a year ago and absolutely love them. They’re nice and firm, but also soft and provide just the right amount of support, so you don’t have to fold your pillow when you’re reading or scrolling through your IG feed while in bed. FWIW, I bought them during a buy-one-get-one-50% off sale, so today’s deal is a waaaay better bargain. Actually, all of Tempur-Pedic’s pillows are BOGO right now, but if spending more than $89 on a pair of pillows is a tough pill to swallow, you can’t go wrong with the $69 pair.

If you’re wondering what mattress I purchased back in April, I ended up going with the original Purple Mattress. (You can read my initial thoughts on the mattress here). Currently, all Purple mattresses are up to $300 off. I love and recommend the original Purple Mattress, but if I could re-do my purchase, I’d spring (no pun intended) for the Purple Plus (from $999) (opens in new tab) or the Purple Hybrid (from $1,649) (opens in new tab). The Hybrid offers a little more spring since it includes both memory foam and inner coils. That said, if you’re on a tight budget, the Original is a great pick.
If you want an amazing bed that’s very affordable and comfy for all types of sleepers, then you can’t go wrong with the Nectar Memory Foam Mattress. When I was shopping for a new mattress back in April, this mattress was tops on my list. (I opted for a different brand because Nectar wasn’t offering white glove delivery due to high Covid cases in the New York City area). In our Nectar Mattress review, we called it the best value mattress you can buy. I should mention that Nectar’s mattress deals are typically the same — you’ll get up to $399 off the mattress and a free $399 sleep bundle. (The sleep bundle includes a free pillow, sheet set, and mattress protector). Still, that’s a pretty solid deal for such an epic mattress.
If you want the best mattress period — you want the Saatva Classic. In our Saatva Classic Mattress review, we said it offers hotel luxury comfort for much less than competing brands. The Saatva Classic is a hybrid mattress, which means it packs innerspring coils and memory foam. The result is a springy, comfy mattress that we recommend hands down. It’s also worth noting that all Saatva mattress purchases include white glove delivery.
