This Memorial Day, Purple is offering up to $800 off its mattresses if you bundle them with an adjustable base. Purple usually only offers discounts on holidays like Memorial Day, so this is one of the best times to buy. To save the most, you'll save to spend more, but my favorite mattress has a $300 cash discount.

I love Purple mattresses, and they're one of my top recommendations after I slept on one for five years: the Purple Restore Hybrid. The Purple mattress has a unique comfort layer that you won't find anywhere else. This GelFlex Grid is made of a material called hyperelastic polymer, which means no matter your sleep position, you'll experience pressure relief and restful sleep.

The material itself is squishy, pressure-relieving, responsive while simultaneously supportive and has a gel-like feel. It can also be stretched far beyond its original shape. The feel of a Purple mattress is unlike anything you've probably tried before, and having tested over 200 different beds, I haven't found many that compare to it in terms of its feel.

This material also has benefits to temperature regulation, thanks to how breathable the purple grid is and the polymer not retaining much heat in comparison to some types of support foam. With the cooling technology, hot sleepers might find extra relief with this mattress.

The feel of this material can be a bit divisive. People tend to either love it or find it a bit too different for their liking, so make sure you utilize the provided 100-night risk-free trial period. Having slept on a Purple for so long, I got accustomed to the unique feel. If it doesn’t feel quite right to you right off the bat, you might find it more comfortable after a month or two.

All Purple mattresses use this material in some capacity, some more than others. Purple’s flagship mattress, the Purple Original, is affordable and uses a combination of support and comfort foams with 2 inches of the GelFlex Grid to provide that unique feel and an accommodating firmness. The Purple Original is discounted for Memorial Day, saving you $100, which brings the price for a queen-size down to $1,399. This deal ends June 3, so act fast to save on a Purple Mattress.

The exact mattress I slept on for so long is no longer available, but there's a Memorial Day discount on its direct replacement, the Purple Restore Hybrid, which I recommend the most. This bed is an upgraded coil version of the Purple Original. It uses 2 inches of the GelFlex Grid, a layer of comfort foam and pocketed coils for support with a firm foam border that improves the edge support. It also comes in two firmness options: soft and firm. The firm model is a great option for back, stomach and combination sleepers, and the soft model is more accommodating and better for side sleepers.

For Memorial Day, the Purple Restore is discounted by $300, bringing the price down to $2,099; tied for the lowest price I've seen on it in 2024. There are additional savings to be had if you're also interested in one of Purple’s adjustable bases. The base model Purple Premium Smart Base will be discounted by $100 if you bundle and the more feature-rich Purple Premium Plus Smart Base will be discounted by $300 if you bundle.
