Mattress and Bedding Deals We Love From Presidents’ Day 2019


Presidents’ Day has become a popular time for retailers to offer mattresses at deep discounts, but too often those sales are more hype than substance. To help our readers score real discounts on bedding that’s actually worth buying, Wirecutter’s business team asked the makers of some of our bedding picks for discounts that meet our deal standards. These deals will be live from February 15 to February 22, unless otherwise noted.

If you’re not sure where to start, take a look at our mattress buying guide, as well as our advice on choosing a mattress size (including measuring your bedroom) and getting your mattress delivered. Hopefully our expert advice and these weeklong discounts on bedding we love will help you rest a little more easy.

Mattresses

Our pick

Leesa Sapira

Leesa Sapira

Best memory-foam and spring hybrid

The Sapira combines the best parts of memory-foam and spring mattresses. It has better cooling and a thicker cover than the competition, all at a great price for a hybrid.

Buying Options

$1595 $1308 from Leesa

Use promo code WIRECUTTER

Use code WIRECUTTER to save 18 percent on the Leesa Sapira mattress, which includes two free pillows.

The Leesa Sapira is a hybrid mattress that combines pocketed coils and memory foam at a great price. We often see a 15 percent discount on the Sapira, but this Presidents’ Day sale brings the discount to 18 percent and adds two pillows for no additional cost.

Although no mattress works for everybody, we recommend the Sapira for side-, stomach-, and back-sleepers. It’s a great mattress for anyone who tends to shift positions at night. It also provides enough support for people who weigh 200 pounds or more.

Also great

Allswell Luxe Hybrid

Allswell Luxe Hybrid

Great for a guest room

The Allswell came so close to being a pick. It’s bouncy, plush, and more luxurious feeling than other mattresses in its price range. But we’re not sure it’s durable enough for years of regular use, which is why we think it’s best for a guest room.

Buying Options

$585 $497 from Allswell

Use promo code WIRECUTTER15

Use code WIRECUTTER15 to save 15 percent on the Allswell Luxe Hybrid mattress.

The Allswell Luxe Hybrid came close to being a pick, earning a spot in the notable contenders section of our mattress review. Price-wise, it’s a lot less expensive than the other hybrid mattresses we recommend. The Allswell Luxe Hybrid placed third behind the Sapira and the Tempur-Adapt but ahead of other models that cost nearly twice as much.

This deal puts the Luxe $85 below its typical street price. If you need a mattress for your guest bedroom or you’re looking for a short-term sleep option, this is an excellent choice.

Pillows

Our pick

Snowe Down Alternative Pillow (firm)

Snowe Down Alternative Pillow (firm)

Best for stomach-sleepers

A supportive pillow that won’t cause neck strain, it also works well for side-sleepers who don’t like memory foam.

Buying Options

$58 $47 from Snowe

Use promo code WIRECUTTER20

Snowe is offering Wirecutter readers 20 percent off its entire site until February 22. Just apply the code WIRECUTTER20 at checkout.

If you sleep mainly on your stomach and side, the Snowe Down Alternative Pillow (firm) is your best option. The Snowe is the top pick for stomach-sleepers from our best bed pillows guide, as it received nearly perfect marks from our pillow testers in 2018 and kept its shape overnight better than the down pillows we tested. Snowe also has a generous 90-day return policy, longer than the policies backing most other pillows we’ve tested. We haven’t seen this price (which you get by applying the sitewide code for 20 percent off) since Wirecutter Deal Day in August 2018.

Upgrade pick

Snowe Down Pillow (firm)

Snowe Down Pillow (firm)

Cloud-like down

The best down pillow we tried provides good support for stomach-sleepers. It’s worth the price only if you really love the soft, squishy feel of down.

Buying Options

$98 $79 from Snowe

Use promo code WIRECUTTER20

Snowe is offering Wirecutter readers 20 percent off its entire site until February 22. Just apply the code WIRECUTTER20 at checkout.

In our guide to the best bed pillows, the Snowe Down Pillow (firm) is our upgrade pick for stomach-sleepers and those who love down pillows. As with the down-alternative pillow, we haven’t seen this price on the down version since Wirecutter Deal Day in August 2018. And the code also takes 20 percent off anything else on the Snowe site.

Our pick

Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow (standard)

Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow (standard)

Best for most sleepers

Moldable and adjustable, with excellent support for back-, side-, and some stomach-sleepers.

Buying Options

$50 $40 from Amazon

Use promo code 92MELL6L

Use code 92MELL6L to save 20 percent on Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillows of all sizes.

The Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow is our pick for most sleepers in our guide to the best bed pillows. As with mattresses, not every pillow will suit every sleeper, but the Xtreme Comforts is great for back- and side-sleepers as well as some stomach-sleepers. This code-based discount puts it at the lowest price we’ve seen for a pillow we’ve recommended for three years running.

Sheets

Upgrade pick

Cultiver Linen Sheets

Cultiver Linen Sheets

Best summer sheets

One of the softest sets of sheets we tried, it’s also sold by the piece, and it comes in a wider range of colors and prints. We’ve heard fewer complaints about the fabric wearing thin prematurely.

Buying Options

$365 $310 from Cultiver

Use promo code WIRECUTTER15

Use WIRECUTTER15 to save 15% on the Cultiver Linen Sheets.

We recommend Cultiver Linen Sheets for the summer and for people who sleep hot. Linen sheets tend to cost more than cotton, but these feel extra soft, come in a wide array of colors, and hold up especially well, according to owner reviews posted on Cultiver’s site. This is the only time we’ve seen a deal on Cultiver sheets since we started recommending them.

Also great

Authenticity 50 Signature Sheets

Authenticity 50 Signature Sheets

An airier percale

These sheets feel airier and less crisp than most percale sets we’ve tried, closer to linen (but softer). We think they’ll appeal to those who like a drapier sheet.

Buying Options

$200 $175 from Authenticity 50

Use promo code WIRECUTTER12

Authenticity 50 is offering Wirecutter readers 12 percent off its entire site until February 22. Just apply the code WIRECUTTER12 at checkout.

Snowe Percale Sheet Set

Snowe Percale Sheet Set

Cooler, crisper percale

These are similar to the L.L.Bean sheets but are slightly softer, crisper, and cooler on the skin—close to high-end hotel sheets.

Snowe is offering Wirecutter readers 20 percent off its entire site until February 22. Just apply the code WIRECUTTER20 at checkout.

This Snowe Percale Sheet Set is made from organic cotton, and while that alone doesn’t mean it’s a better sheet, it does make them an excellent choice for people with sensitive skin. It’s an upgrade pick in our guide to the best sheets and at $158 for a queen-size set, this deal matches the lowest price we’ve posted during Black Friday last year.

Upgrade pick

L.L.Bean Premium Supima Flannel Sheets

L.L.Bean Premium Supima Flannel Sheets

A more luxurious option

These feel softer and plusher than our main pick. They pilled less in our testing, and we think they’re likely to stay softer over the long run.

Use code BEAN25 to save 25 percent on the L.L.Bean Premium Supima Flannel Sheets. Note: This deal ends on February 19.

With this discount, the upgrade pick in our guide to the best flannel sheets is down to $143 for a queen set, the lowest price we’ve seen on them. They’re cozy and sturdy, and they’re made with high-quality long-staple cotton. And at this price they’re just $30 more than the lighter L.L.Bean Ultrasoft sheets.

Blankets, comforters, and duvet covers

As far as warmth goes, our reviewer says, “It’s still comfortable and warm to sleep under during moderately cold nights.”

Our pick

Cultiver Linen Duvet Cover with Pillowcases

Cultiver Linen Duvet Cover with Pillowcases

A cover for the linen lover

Linen’s coarse texture adds an artfully rumpled look to a bed, and this breathable cover’s linen is the softest we’ve tested, especially for the price. Seventeen colors and prints will suit any style.
