Traditional Independence Day celebrations are great and all — backyard barbecues, pool parties, trips to the beach and the like — but this year, the July 4 weekend is also prime time to snag a new mattress.

What does the Fourth have to do with getting a better night's sleep? We're not sure either, but there's no denying the stellar deals to be had for those looking to upgrade their bedding.
Here are the best Fourth of July mattress sales to shop this weekend, including plenty of cooling mattresses and bedding for those hot summer nights.
1. Cocoon by Sealy Chill Mattresses
Save 35 percent on a Cocoon by Sealy Chill mattress — either the memory foam or hybrid model — through July 12.
Both are made with a cooling cover that absorbs and dissipates heat, keeping you cooler throughout the night. And the hybrid model is constructed with foam as well as coils, giving it a supportive-yet-cushiony feel (and making it one of the best mattresses for neck and back pain).
If you're a hot sleeper year-round, consider upgrading your purchase to include Sealy's Extra-Chill Foam ($300), which has advanced cooling properties.
Buy a mattress between now and July 12 and you'll also get two pillows and a set of cooling sheets for free.
Buy it: CocoonbySealy.com; Price: $499 to $1,299
2. TEMPUR-Breeze Mattresses
Now through July 12, save $500 on any TEMPUR-breeze mattress from TEMPUR-pedic, including any size of the TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze or TEMPUR-PRObreeze. The PRO mattress promises to keep you 3 degrees cooler as you snooze, while the LUXE model brings you down 8 degrees.
In addition to their cooling technology, these mattresses are designed to conform to your body to provide pressure relief, and they're also made with motion-absorbing properties, which help keep your sleep undisturbed, no matter who's sharing your bed (we're looking at you, Fido).
Choose from a soft or firm feel for the LUXE mattress, and a medium or medium-hybrid (with spring coils for better edge support) feel for the PRO.
Buy it: Tempurpedic.com; Price: $3,449 to $8,898
3. Nolah Evolution Mattress
Save up to $700 on the Nolah Evolution and get two free pillows from now until July 5.
This 15-inch mattress is Nolah's most advanced luxury hybrid mattress, featuring graphite-infused cooling materials, patented support coils and a grid that provides edge support and long-term durability. This structure makes it a good choice for people with back or neck pain and ranks it among the best mattresses for side sleepers, too.
It comes in three levels of firmness: plush, luxury firm and firm. It's also CertiPUR-US certified, which means the foam is free of heavy metals and other potentially harmful chemical substances, and it's backed by a lifetime warranty.
4. Stearns & Foster Mattresses
Save $400 through July 12 on Stearns & Foster's Lux Estate Collection, which includes the Lux Estate Cassatt and the Lux Estate Hybrid Pollock.
The Cassatt is crafted with IntelliCoil HD innersprings as well as HD memory foam, which gives you that cozy, sinking-into-the-bed feeling. The Hybrid Pollock is an upgraded version with even more memory foam, for added support and pressure relief.
Both models have a ventilated coil system and external copper air vents that help keep you cool by preventing heat from building up in the mattress.
Buy it: StearnsandFoster.com; Price: $2,249 to $5,898
5. Avocado Mattresses
The Green Mattress is particularly beloved, with more than 17,000 positive reviews to its name. The pressure-point support system supplies stability for your back, while the organic cotton and wool materials provide natural cushion.
You could also consider upgrading to the Organic Luxury Mattress, which is handmade with 17 layers of organic and natural latex, wool, silk, hemp and cotton as well as more than 3,000 coils for added support and motion isolation. This is Avocado's softest mattress, and it's also climate neutral certified.
Both mattresses come with a 1-year trial and offer free shipping and returns.
6. Brooklyn Bedding Mattresses
Take 25 percent off site-wide through July 4 at Brooklyn Bedding with promo code JULY25.
The company has a range of mattresses for different body types and types of sleepers, but we especially like the Brooklyn Custom mattress for its ability to deliver a personalized sleep experience. The mattress comes in soft, medium and firm with a memory foam, latex or foam comfort layer so you can adjust the feel to suit your preferences.
What's more, if you sleep with a partner who has different sleep needs, you can customize each half of a king- or California king-size mattress so everyone is satisfied.
(Psst: Read the rest of our full review of the Custom mattress.)
7. Nectar Mattresses
Take $100 any Nectar mattress and get $499 worth of accessories for free until July 11.
The Nectar is one of the best mattresses for insomnia because it's designed with a medium-firm feel, which means it delivers the contouring of memory foam without the sagging. Translation: It offers a comfortable night's sleep sans aches and pains.
It's also very reasonably priced compared with other mattresses and has more than 40,000 rave reviews.
The free accessories with your purchase include a mattress protector, sheet set and premium pillows.
Buy it: NectarSleep.com; Price: $399 to $1,138

It also has a gel-infused layer meant to keep your body at a comfortable temperature throughout the night.
The accessories that come with your mattress purchase include a 400-thread-count sheet set, cooling mattress protector and premium pillows.
Buy it: DreamCloudSleep.com; Price: $699 to $1,299

10. Casper Mattresses
Save up to $600 on Casper mattresses and up to 50 percent on everything else on the site through July 11.
We especially like Casper's Wave Hybrid Mattress, which is a top-notch cooling mattress for hot sleepers (when you add the optional Snow Technology for $425) and also provides the right level of comfort and support for people with back and neck pain.
It's designed to cradle your body and properly support your spine, and strategically placed gel pods help alleviate pressure, so you wake up with fewer aches and pains.
Buy it: Casper.com; Price: $2,035 to $2,970 (+$425 for Snow Technology)
11. Purple Hybrid Mattress
Purple's hybrid mattresses pair the brand's signature GelFlex Grid with individually wrapped coils to deliver a comfortable, supportive snooze with plenty of airflow. They come with a 100-night trial, 10-year warranty and free shipping and returns.
The adjustable base has fully customizable head and foot sections and comes programmed with a sitting mode (if you're the type to work from bed) as well as an anti-snoring mode.
