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. Sealy Posturepedic Plus Hybrid
Save on Sealy and get up to $200 off the Posturepedic Plus Hybrid mattress until July 11.
It's designed 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.
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.
2. TEMPUR-Breeze Mattresses
Now through July 11, save $500 on any TEMPUR-breeze mattress collection from Tempur-Pedic, including any size of the LuxeBreeze or 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.
For a less expensive option, try the TEMPUR-Cloud Mattress now 30 percent off every day with the code CLOUD30 until July 11, with prices starting at $1,999.
3. Nolah Evolution Mattress
Get up to 30 percent off on Nolah Evolution mattresses and get two free pillows from now until supplies lasts.
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, which 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. Avocado Mattresses

The Organic Luxury Mattress 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.

5. 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.
And 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.

Pick your favorite memory foam mattress (the original has 4.8 out of 5 stars, with more than 41,000 reviews) and then complete your bundle with a mattress protector, sheet set, bedding and bed frame.
This mattress 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 without aches and pains.
