It's easy to compare two mattresses and say which is better or worse, but it's not as easy to objectively look at two mattresses and say which is a better value. Mattress companies often say things like "Can you really put a price on good sleep?" or "You spend a third of your life in bed, you should invest accordingly." While that's all good, we understand that it's not always that simple. Of course, that $2,000 mattress you're promoting is better than this $600 mattress, but if you don't have $2,000 to spend, that advice isn't helpful. This page was created to point you in the direction of good, cheap mattresses so no matter your budget, you can enjoy quality sleep.
Below you will find affordable mattresses that our experts feel have the best bang for your buck. These mattresses are recommended to those who simply aren't in a place to spend thousands on a mattress, and may also be good picks for temporary use such as in a guest room, cottage, or dorm.
Value was determined by comparing price and performance, so these are not necessarily our cheapest mattresses. You'll find slightly higher-priced models on this list as well, but they provide an equivalent increase in value for their increase in cost, especially over time. You won't lose sleep over the price of your mattress with these great options.
