This month’s best Purple mattress deals and discounts are ideal for anyone looking to go all-in with the brand, as they’ll net you up to $208 of free bedding when buying a mattress. That means you can upgrade major aspects of your bed with just one order. The latest Purple sale also features a 20% discount on select comfort bundles for the bedroom and office.

So while the Purple Summer Sale isn’t offering cash discounts on beds, there are still some great deals to jump on. Need a new pillow? Then the best Purple mattress deal for you is up to 15% off the brand’s best-sellers, including the new TwinCloud (now from $78). 

Purple is one of our top picks for the best mattress online because it’s cooling, comfy and great for pressure relief. Each mattress is covered by a 10-year limited warranty and comes on a 100-night trial. Prices start from $599 for the Purple Original, or from $2,099 for the flagship Hybrid Premier.

When choosing the best Purple mattress deal for you, keep in mind your budget, your sleep needs and what support your body needs. That way you won’t be tempted by big discounts on flashy beds when a cheaper Purple mattress might do the job just as well.

Should you buy a Purple mattress deal?

Purple mattresses are powered by Purple Grid Technology, designed to reduce pressure on high-impact areas of your body (back, neck, hips). This innovative setup boosts airflow and draws away excess heat, which is why Purple is also our top pick for the best cooling mattress.

While the Purple Original Mattress is the cheapest, it’s still infused with Purple Grid Technology, just like its more expensive siblings. Happily, all three are included in this month’s best Purple mattress deals and discounts.

We’d recommend jumping on these savings if you want a mattress that:

  • Relieves pressure on your back and hips
  • Is cooling all-night long
  • Comes on a reasonably decent trial (100 nights)
  • Offers free shipping and returns
  • Comes with luxury free sleep gifts or a big cash discount

The trial period and warranty are still valid when you shop the best Purple mattress deals, so you won’t miss any perks or coverage just because you’re getting a cheaper price. The price of a Purple mattress without discounts is as follows:

  • Purple Kids Mattress - $499
  • Purple Original Mattress - from $599
  • Purple Hybrid Mattress - from $1,499
  • Purple Hybrid Premier - from $2,099

Best Purple mattress deals and discounts: Meet the mattresses

The best Purple mattress deals and discount codes cover all three of Purple's best-selling mattresses. The Purple Mattress is the original model, followed by the Purple Hybrid, available in all-foam or foam and springs, and the Purple Hybrid Premier. 

In addition to enhanced support and comfort, Purple mattresses are a superb choice for anyone who tends to sleep hot, or who is dealing with night sweats or hot flashes (flushes) in bed. As such, The Purple Mattress is our top pick for the best cooling mattress, as well as being our top pick in general.

That’s thanks largely to Purple’s brilliant Purple Grid technology. It's designed to ensure your mattress adapts to your body as soon as you lie down, and uses open air channels to promote airflow around you as you sleep to keep you cool. 

The benefits of a Purple mattress include:

  • Eases neck and back pain
  • Keeps hot sleepers cool
  • Supports your body for comfortable sleep
  • Controls motion transfer if your partner wriggles around

-Heavier sleepers prefer the Hybrid

The Purple Mattress, also known as the Purple Original, is one of the mattress-in-a-box forerunners, and is affectionately known as ‘the mattress that broke the internet’. That’s because when it first launched, no-one had quite seen a mattress like it (keep reading), and buying a mattress online, then having it delivered in a box on a free 100-night trial, was simply unheard of.

The original Purple Mattress is now the entry-level model in the Purple mattress range and is usually the one people scope out first when shopping among the best Purple mattress deals. It’s a bit of a ‘Goldilocks mattress’ in that it suits a variety of sleep positions and needs, and it's on sale thanks to the Purple mattress Cyber Monday sale.

That’s because the original Purple Mattress, like the more expensive Hybrid and Hybrid Premier, is designed with Purple Grid Technology. This ensures the mattress constantly adapts to your body for enhanced support and comfort from the moment you lie down. 

Open air channels boost airflow throughout the Purple Mattress, making it an ideal choice for hot sleepers experiencing disturbed sleep due to feeling too hot and stuffy. 

The original Purple Mattress is available in all standard mattress sizes from Twin to Split King, and each size utilizes motion isolating tech. That won’t matter so much on the Twin sizes, but for the bigger sizes where you might be sharing with a partner, motion isolation tech comes in handy. How come? If your partner tosses and turns, you simply won’t notice it that much and shouldn’t be woken up by it.

Who is the Purple Mattress suited to? Hot sleepers, combination sleepers, couples

The Purple Hybrid mattress is a step-up from the Purple Mattress, and therefore carries a slightly higher price tag. Happily though, it’s always included in the best Purple mattress deals, so you’ll either nab a free gift or discount when buying it.

Whereas the Purple Original uses foam only, the Hybrid also has a base layer of individually wrapped coils to improve the responsiveness of the mattress, plus the overall comfort and support it gives you during sleep. No wonder it has proved popular with tall people, as well as those with a heavier body weight (250lb+). 

The Purple Hybrid is a very durable mattress consisting of thin layers of transition foam (there to boost comfort and contribute to the overall study structure of the mattress), followed by 7.5-inch Responsive Support Coils. In tandem with Purple Grid Technology, these coils help the mattress relieve any pressure along key points of your body during sleep. The coils should also help the mattress last longer.

Next comes the two-inch ‘no pressure support’ Purple Grid layer, filled with a flexible gel material that instantly adapts to your body. So look forward to being cradled by the mattress, rather than swallowed alive. 

The final layer – the one that comes into contact with your skin – is a Premium StretchMax Cover. It’s soft, breathable, and designed to let air flow freely so that you don’t overheat during your sleep. 

Who is the Purple Hybrid mattress suited to? Hot sleepers, big and tall sleepers, back or stomach sleepers

The Purple Hybrid Premier is the brand’s flagship mattress, and therefore contains every bell and whistle Purple has made to help its customers experience better sleep. Here you’ll find Purple Grid Technology, a comfort layer consisting of hyperelastic polymers that adapt to your body in a similar way to memory foam.

But you won’t feel like you’re stuck ‘in the mattress’, as Purple has designed the Hybrid Premier to be more responsive, creating an almost floating sensation as soon as you lie down upon it. 

The Purple Hybrid Premier mattress also utilizes a transitional layer of polyfoam, plus a support core of pocketed coils (encased in high-density foam) and a polyfoam base layer to boost your comfort in bed, and to relieve any pressure you feel. 

Best of all, you can select between two fitness and comfort layer thickness on the Purple Hybrid Premier. Firstly there’s a 12” model with a 3” Purple Grid layer, and which provides a medium fitness feel. Secondly, there’s a 13” model with a 4” Purple Grid comfort layer. The mattress costs from $1,999 normally, and is currently on sale in the Purple mattress Cyber Monday sale.

Overall, the Purple Hybrid Premier’s deep comfort layer and sturdy support system delivers consistent pressure relief across your waist, hips and back, while also better supporting your neck and back. The open-grid design and pocketed coil base mean this is a brilliant mattress choice for hot sleepers, as the Hybrid Premier will work hard to keep you cooler during sleep. 

Finally, Purple’s motion isolation tech comes in handy for partner’s who toss and turn during their sleep. The responsive coils are quiet, so you won’t hear them as your partner moves around, and the motion isolation tech should mean you won’t feel your partner wriggling either.

Who is the Purple Hybrid Premier mattress suited to? Hot sleepers, couples, side, back and combination sleepers.

Best Purple mattress deals and discounts FAQ

How thick are Purple mattresses?

To recap on the above, the thickness of each Purple mattress is as follows:

  • The Purple Mattress: 9.25 inches
  • The Purple Hybrid Mattress: 11 inches
  • 3" Purple Hybrid Premier Mattress: 12 inches
  • 4" Purple Hybrid Premier Mattress: 13 inches

Is there a Purple mattress topper?

In a nutshell, no. At the moment Purple doesn’t make a mattress topper, probably because its mattresses are so good and so affordable on their own that you don’t need to supplement them with a topper. 

If you are looking for something to protect your new Purple mattress though, we would recommend looking at the Purple Mattress Protector (from $79). There’s also a specific Kid Mattress Protector (also $79) available for the Kids Mattress.

Are Purple mattresses good?

As mentioned, Purple has three core mattresses: The Purple Mattress, which is the brand's original mattress, and the Purple Hybrid mattress and the newest Purple Hybrid Premier mattress. At half the price of the Hybrid mattress, the Purple Original is outstanding value for money. Made from foam, it gives you the best of Purple's cutting-edge mattress technology (more on that below) at a very affordable $649. 

Ramp that up to the next level, though, and you have the Purple Hybrid or Hybrid Premium mattress, which you can customize to provide superior sleep comfort and support for your body and postural needs.

All Purple mattresses use the company's Purple Grid Technology. Essentially, this is a buckling column gel that dynamically flexes under pressure to support your body. It cradles and supports your shoulders and hips, and the open-grid design promotes airflow and dissipates body heat, so you shouldn’t get too hot while you sleep. If you can grab one of these for less during a Purple mattress sale, don't hesitate.

The Original Purple Mattress vs The All-New Purple mattress (Image credit: Purple)

The Original Purple mattress is classified as a medium mattress, whereas the all-new Purple mattress (which comes in three thicknesses: 11, 12 and 13 inches) ranges in firmness from medium-soft to medium-firm, depending on what you select.

Both Purple mattresses are well-suited to a variety of sleep styles, thanks to that dynamic Smart Grid technology. And the Smart Grid tech has another trick up its sleeve too: it's able to isolate and dramatically reduce motion transfer. That's great news for anyone who shares a bed with a restless sleeper, as you won't feel your bedmate wriggling around.

Finally, all Purple mattresses come with a 100-night trial period. If, within 100 nights, you decide the mattress isn't right for you, Purple will arrange for it to be collected for free and you'll be refunded. This should be an excellent little confidence booster if you're nervous about buying a mattress without touching, sitting or lying on it first.

Is there a Purple mattress discount for military personnel?

In addition to offering regular discounts and deals, Purple offers a military discount to active, veteran, retired and reservist military personnel, as well as military spouses and registered dependents. This is a 10% discount off any order.

You can claim the Purple mattress military discount after proving your eligibility. Simply click the big green ‘Verify Eligibility’ button on Purple’s military and first responders discount page and follow the instructions. If everything is in order, you'll receive your verified status within 20 minutes.

There's an evergreen 10% off Purple mattress deal for first responders, educators, and healthcare professionals too, so it's worth exploring if the only current sale offers you see on the site are free gifts but no money off.

Purple mattress unboxing: How to unroll a Purple mattress

All Purple mattresses are delivered in tough purple colored plastic wrapping called The Tube. The mattress itself is encased in another layer of protective wrap to keep it free of dirt and grime during delivery. 

Once you get the mattress into your room of choice, follow these Purple mattress unboxing tips:

  • Step 1 – Get someone to help you move the mattress. These are heavy and unboxing should not be attempted alone. 
  • Step 2 – Lift the mattress, still in its Purple Tube, onto your bed base.
  • Step 3 – Unzip the Purple Tube at the top and pull out the ‘cutting tool’.
  • Step 4 – Starting at the zipper end, cut through the Purple Tube itself. 
  • Step 5 – Remove the Tube entirely and pop it to one side on the floor.
  • Step 6 – Remove the clear protective plastic layers.
  • Step 7 – Discard of the packaging and enjoy your new Purple mattress.

You won't always find a Purple mattress discount code or sale on the Purple site itself, but the brand often runs free gift promotions. For example, it will add a pillow, sheets or other gift to your order when you buy a Purple mattress, increasing the value of your purchase. Plenty of retailers offer Purple mattress deals and sales too, so there's usually a way to reduce the price. 

Where else to shop for the best Purple mattress deals

From time to time, various online retailers get involved with Purple mattress sales, so you can snag some great deals away from Purple. Let's take a look at these now... 

Will there be a 2021 Purple Mattress Black Friday sale?

While we can't say for certain, we can make an educated guess based on previous years. The Purple mattress Black Friday sale has been running for a few years now, and usually serves up the biggest deals outside of the Memorial Day sales. 

We've previously spotted discounts of up to $500 on bundles, and as much as 15% off PLUS free gifts on mattresses, making them by far the best Purple mattress deals of the year. There were also smaller discounts across bedding and gifts. 

If it does happen this year, the Purple mattress Black Friday sale 2021 should land in November. Last year it ran through Cyber Monday too, and this was when we saw some extra-juicy last minute discounts on bundles. In fact, the best Purple mattress deal for Cyber Monday last year was $500 off the brand's Best-Selling Sleep Bundle. 

Other retailers launch competing Black Friday Purple mattress discounts too, and while we'll be keeping an eye on those, the best deals always come direct from Purple.
