There hardly needs to be an occasion to warrant a better night’s rest, but just in case you needed one, May is Better Sleep Month. To celebrate, we're starting with a product that can seriously improve your shut-eye—a mattress. According to the Sleep Foundation, mattresses should be replaced every six to eight years, as they can significantly improve your sleep quality. Since May just so happens to be the best time to buy them (older models tend to go on sale around this time of year to make room for new ones), we've rounded up several of the best discounted mattresses from manufacturers such as Nectar, Tuft & Needle and others.

When is Better Sleep Month?

May is recognized as Better Sleep Month by The Better Sleep Council and other health organizations in order to encourage people to implement better sleeping habits. It's a necessary effort since, according to the the American Sleep Association, between 50 and 70 million adults have a sleep disorder.

Luckily, multiple outlets are having exclusive savings events on mattresses, including some of our favorite mattresses-in-a-box. The Tuft & Needle Original, which we deemed the best bed-in-a-box of the bunch for being comfortable in various sleeping positions, starts at $450 and comes with up to $225 of free sleeping accessories. Nectar’s memory foam mattress, meanwhile, which also made our list for its marshmallow-like softness, currently comes with $299 to $399 worth of sleep goodies.

There’s plenty more plush picks to choose from this month, with no shortage of mattress makes, models and sizes, but we've done the legwork and narrowed down some of our top picks to help you get some shut-eye at the best prices possible. Check them out below!

Nectar has gotten high marks from both our team and its customers for its signature memory foam mattress, which is now selling with up to $399 in accessories—a cooling pillow, sheet set and mattress protector—included free with purchases. (Those picking up a twin or twin XL sized mattresses will get up to $299 in accessories.) The Nectar mattress is one of our favorite mattresses-in-a-box. We found it to be a good fit for people who sleep on their side and prefer a more plushy surface to lay on, as it was pretty squishy. More than 31,000 customers have also given it a 5-star review for its thickness and comfort.

Earth Day may be behind us, but there are still plenty of ways to be environmentally-conscious when you're shopping for a mattress. Avocado, which is a B-Corp+, climate neutral company, has extended its Earth Month Sale to Monday, May 10, during which customers can use promo code EARTH to save $200 on the brand's latex and vegan latex mattresses, dropping them both from $1,199 to $999. While we haven't reviewed these specific models, we did include the brand's Green mattress (from $999) among our favorite beds for its ability to avoid retaining body heat and how unresponsive it was to any motion. The latex mattress, meanwhile, received praise from customers for being a biodegradable alternative to the typical bed. The vegan model also received glowing reviews from customers, with one reviewer praising it for having "enough bounce to give you free movement without causing a disturbance."

Helix has different types of hybrid mattresses for different sleeping preferences, one of which is its very popular Midnight mattress (from $599 with code, was $699). We felt the Midnight was more than worthy of being included in our best mattress-in-a-box list, praising its medium-firm feel and ability to keep side-sleepers aligned overnight. Those with this sleeping position who purchased the Midnight said that its overall comfort and firmness were major contributors to their now-great night's sleep.
