What to expect from a mattress under $300?

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (1)One of the most common concerns we hear is that a mattress under $300 can’t possibly help you get a good night’s sleep because it just doesn’t cost enough compared to most mattresses on the market today. However, when it comes to mattresses, the price can be misleading. But when does the price difference really make a difference? Here, we’ll help you know what to expect when shopping for a mattress under $300.

The truth is, many expensive mattresses are expensive not because they are constructed with high-end, expensive materials, but because consumers are willing to pay the sticker price for them simply because they reason that a more expensive mattress will offer a better night’s sleep. However, in many cases there are few differences between mattresses that cost under $300 and those that cost over $1,000 other than the brand name and the advertising budget– especially if they are using the same materials at the heart of the mattress. For this reason, many people report finding a low-priced mattress just as comfortable, or even more comfortable, than premium mattresses at exorbitant prices.

That said, there are some important differences you are likely to run into when looking at mattresses under $300. First, the materials mattresses at this price point are made from are likely to be more limited. Many of the mattresses we reviewed are constructed from foam or memory foam rather than traditional box springs or from a soft, dense material like latex or cotton that is commonly used in high-end mattresses. Part of the reason for this is that foam can be compressed for shipping– which reduces the price because it saves a brand from maintaining a brick-and-mortar location– but another part of the reason is that foam is a cheaper material. While a cheaper material doesn’t necessarily mean less comfortable, it is important to remember that having a foam core in your current mattress might be part of the reason that you are having trouble sleeping and that upgrading to a more expensive material could make a big difference.

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (2)Another thing to look out for in a mattress under $300 is durability. Many mattresses under $300 are designed to be one-sided, meaning that they have a top and bottom that are different. This means that the mattress cannot be flipped, which will reduce its lifespan from potentially a decade or more of use to around five to seven years of use.

While buying a new mattress at this low price point in several years may still be worth it, be sure to consider the added cost of replacing your mattress more frequently when comparing to a more expensive mattress.

Finally, one of the major differences between low-priced mattresses and high-priced mattresses is where they are made. Simply put, mattresses made in the USA cost more– so if keeping local businesses is something you care about, expect to pay more than $300 when shopping for a new mattress.

Features to consider while choosing a mattress

Now that you know more about what to expect from a mattress priced under $300, how do you determine which of the hundreds of different mattresses at this price point could be a fit for your sleeping habits? In this section, we’ll explain some of the most important features of mattresses so that you can better choose the mattress that suits your needs.

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (3)Mattress type and construction

One of the most important things to look for in any mattress is what type of materials it is made from and how it is constructed.

To start, let’s look at the types of mattresses that are commonly found for under $300– foam, memory foam, and hybrid mattresses.

Polyurethane foam, which forms the core of many of the mattresses we reviewed, is one of the least expensive materials for mattresses to be made from and has been a staple of mattresses for the past 100years. However, viscoelastic foam, better known as memory foam, has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years such that nearly all of the foam mattresses we reviewed are now made partially with this type of foam on top.

When choosing a mattress under $300, though, it is important to recognize that almost no mattresses marketed as memory foam mattresses are made entirely of memory foam– instead, they typically have a few inches of memory foam at the top with the bulk of the mattress made up of less expensive high-density polyurethane foam to keep the price down. While this may not be an issue for many users, it is important to consider whether the two to three inches of memory foam found on low-priced mattresses is enough for you to feel supported and comfortable.

More broadly, this means that it is important to look at the layered construction of a mattress when examining what it is made of. In general, the top layer or two of the mattress will determine how soft or firm the mattress feels to you, while the upper half of the mattress will determine how supportive the mattress is. This also means that a thicker mattress is not necessarily more supportive if, as in the case of the 10-inch Signature Sleep mattress, the majority of the mattress’s thickness is simply high-density base foam. However, for heavyset users, having a thicker base of foam like that can be extremely important for feeling supported.

Another consideration when looking at foam mattresses is whether the memory foam layer is standard memory foam or gel-infused memory foam. Gel-infused memory foam, like that found in the Classic Brands and Lucid mattresses, is designed to be better at dissipating heat and circulating air than standard memory foam. This can be a major factor for people who live in warm climates and who have trouble sleeping because they overheat.

However, note that gel memory foam typically has a shorter lifespan than standard memory foam and will become irreversibly compressed over time.

While most non-foam mattress materials are too expensive to be priced under $300, there are some hybrid models– mattresses incorporating a combination of foam and traditional springs– available for under $300 like the mattresses from Ashley Furniture and Olee Sleep. Hybrid mattresses offer some of the supporting feel of traditional innerspring mattresses while also providing a soft foam top, which makes them beloved by many people and easy to adjust with a mattress topper to get the perfect level of softness and support. In general, hybrid mattresses are bouncier, which makes them easier to get out of in the morning, as well as better at moving heat away from your body in the night compared to memory foam mattresses. Unfortunately, these advantages also add to the price of hybrid mattresses so the selection under $300 is relatively limited.

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (4)Sizes available

Once you’ve found a mattress that you are happy with, it’s important to see whether it is available in the size that you need. Most mattresses are available in a range of sizes, from a twin size to king or even California king sizes. However, note that our designation of prices under $300 is based on queen-sized mattresses– opting for a king or California king size may push the price of your mattress above this ceiling. In general, full- or twin-size mattresses are considered large enough for a single sleeper, while a queen size mattress or larger is considered enough for a couple to sleep in comfortably.

A queen size mattress is the most common mattress size since it is practical– it fits in most rooms– while also offering enough space for two people.

Mattress height

Mattresses come in a variety of thicknesses, ranging from just 6 inches for the Zinus Ultima mattress to as much as 13inches for the Olee Sleep mattress. For the majority of people, mattress thickness is not an overwhelming concern when choosing a mattress– while six inches might be a little thin, the majority of mattresses we reviewed are 10inches thick or more, which provides plenty of support for the average person. However, heavyset users will need a thicker mattress to provide support so that their weight is captured entirely in the mattress’s foam rather than supported in part by the hard floor. It is worth noting that many mattresses are available in multiple thicknesses, so heavy users can order a mattress that is right for them, although adding thickness will typically increase the price without altering the thickness of the top memory foam layers.

Mattress firmness and sleep positions

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (5)What’s your typical sleeping position? The answer may determine how firm you need your mattress to be. In general, particularly firm mattresses, like those from Modway and Best Price, are best suited for back and stomach sleepers, since your body needs to essentially float on the top of the mattress and your weight is spread out so that you are not as likely to develop pressure points. On the other hand, side sleepers tend to sleep better on plush mattresses, like the model from Signature Sleep, that allow them to sink in, since it is easy to develop painful pressure points when sleeping on your side on a hard mattress.

However, these are not hard and fast rules– back sleepers in particular often find themselves more comfortable on a plush mattress, while the level of firmness or plushness can vary a ton even between mattresses that market themselves as being extra firm or extra plush. In addition, you and your partner may have different sleeping styles and need to compromise on a mattress that works for both of you– in which case a medium firmness mattress like the one from Ashley Furniture can be a good option. It is always a good idea to try out mattresses at your local store to get an idea of whether you prefer a firm or plush mattress if you don’t already know your preference.

Materials used

The quality of the materials used in your mattress can make a big difference in your sleeping experience. First of all, the high-quality foam will ensure that your body has the support it needs for a good night’s sleep and that the top layer is soft enough for you to feel comfortable. The support aspect is particularly important for heavyset users who need more support from the same amount of foam in a mattress. In addition, the materials in your mattress can affect your overall health– mattresses under $300 are often not made with hypoallergenic materials like many more expensive mattresses are, which can cause problems both in the bed and beyond if you are prone to allergies.

The materials used in your mattress play a major role in how long your mattress will last.

For example, different qualities of foam have different lifespans, as do different types of foam– you can expect that the cooling effects of gel-infused foam come at a cost of this foam lasting for a shorter lifespan than standard memory foam.

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (6)Temperature regulation

When it comes to finding the culprit for why you may be tossing and turning in the night on your current mattress, poor temperature regulation is often to blame. Many people overheat in the middle of the night and wake up simply because their mattress does a poor job of dissipating heat and circulating air– which can be especially problematic during the summer months or if you sleep with a partner.

Temperature regulation is also where your choice of mattress materials can make a big difference. Most mattresses under $300, and all of the mattresses we reviewed, are topped with either memory foam or gel-infused foam, so we won’t dive into the heat dissipating capabilities of more expensive materials. However, gel-infused foam, such as is found topping the mattresses from Classic Brands and Lucid, is significantly better at dissipating heat away from your body and moving air through the foam cells than memory foam is. In fact, this is one of the major reasons that some people refuse to switch to a memory foam mattress.

Certification

One of the most common certifications that mattresses under $300 receive is the CertiPUR-US certification– all of the mattresses we reviewed, except for the Olee Sleep mattress, have this certification. The CertiPUR-US certification essentially states that the foam used in a mattress meets certain quality standards related to emissions, performance, and durability. In particular, this certification indicates that a mattress is free from volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, and other harmful substances that could impact your health over the course of years of sleeping on a mattress.

Durability and warranty

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (7)Even at a sub-$300 price point, you should expect your mattress to last for many years to come– foam mattresses have a minimum lifetime of about five years, and many can last for 10 or more if treated properly. The durability of your mattress depends on a few factors. First, the types of materials that the mattress is made from have a big impact. A high-density foam will keep its form nearly forever, but memory foam will eventually lose its elasticity and will begin to become permanently compressed. Gel-infused memory foam has the disadvantage that it begins to break down faster than standard memory foam, meaning that it will become permanently compressed even more quickly.

The innersprings found in hybrid mattresses have quite a long lifespan, especially if you are good about rotating your mattress over its lifetime, and will typically outlast the memory foam layers of these mattresses.

Even though you may not expect your mattress to be comfortable for 10years or more, it is also a good idea to look for a long warranty when choosing a mattress to add peace of mind to your purchase. Many of the mattresses we reviewed offer limited warranties of 10years, while the mattresses from Classic Brands and Lucid come with extraordinarily long 25-year warranties that ensure you can keep your mattress for as long as you stay in your home if you would like.

Sleep trial

Unfortunately, one of the important things you lose when shopping for a mattress under $300 is a sleep trial. While all mattresses that we reviewed offer a warranty, none of them offer a 30- or 60-day money back guarantee that would allow you to try out the mattress in your home for a month or two before fully committing to it. Instead, you may be able to find some of the mattresses that we reviewed at your local mattress store to give them a brief trial run, but in general, you will be responsible for the hassle and cost of working with the manufacturer to return any of these mattresses.

How to maintain your new mattress?

10 Best Mattresses under $300 Reviewed in Detail (Fall 2022) (8)In order to keep your mattress feeling springy and your memory foam elastic as if it were new, it’s important to maintain your mattress with some frequency. The most important thing you can do to keep your mattress in tip-top shape is to rotate it from head to toe once per month– this ensures that your weight is distributed over the mattress evenly over its lifespan and allows the foam time to rebound in between rotations.

If your mattress is two-sided– which none of the mattresses we reviewed are– you can also flip it over when you rotate it to spread your weight over both sides of the mattress.

Another important maintenance task is simply vacuuming your mattress every once in a while to remove hair, dust, and any other debris that has gotten on your mattress. This will ensure that the foam pores do not become clogged, which would impede air circulation, as well as helps to prevent any unwanted bugs from taking up lodging in your mattress. If you find any stains while you are cleaning the mattress, you can use a mild detergent and sponge to clean them up. In addition, baking soda and water is a great combination to scrub out any odors that are coming from a particular spot on your mattress.
