Consumer Reports Digital Lifestyle Editor Elliot Weiler joined TODAY to share some of the best mattress deals you can shop on Presidents Day and beyond.

Best Presidents Day mattress deals and affordable picks seen on TODAY

Casper Snow

"The Casper Snow, one of the newer mattresses from this well-known bed-in-a-box pioneer, is one of the least heat-retaining mattresses we’ve tested, making it great for those who sleep hot," suggests Weiler. It is also supportive enough for the average back and side sleeper, since it combines pocketed coils with layers of foam to earn it a firmness rating of four out of 10. "Its solid stability rating means sleepers are unlikely to feel vibrations from a partner’s movements."

Bob-O-Pedic Treasure Cushion Dual

For what it is worth, the Bob-O-Pedic Treasure Cushion Dual is an incredible deal, and one of the best innerspring models Weiler and his team have tested. Its gel infused foam allows for airflow and temperature regulation, but also a solid support for all types of sleep preferences. "Bob-o-Pedic owners give the brand high scores for comfort and satisfaction in our member surveys," says Weiler. "Hard to find a better bargain."

Tuft & Needle Nod Hybrid Mattress

This Tuft & Needle Nod mattress-in-a-box has an impressive rating, with over 3,700 out of their 5,200 reviews being five starts. The reason behind that are the innersprings topped with foam, which deliver tons of support for every kind of sleeper. "The durability is top-notch, with little in the way of sagging, softening, or damage in eight years of simulated use," suggests Weiler. "This model is highly stable, though it doesn’t resist bounciness, a potential drawback when a sleeper changes position."

Serta Cooling Gel Memory Mattress

"For that bargain price, you get a mattress that actually offers excellent support for most back sleepers, and a little bit less so for all but the most petite side sleepers," explains Weiler. "It’s a true foam mattress, so stability isn’t great. But durability is fantastic, so really hard to top the value you get for this price if you’re on a tight budget." The mattress comes in a box, so you'll be impressed in by how tightly it is packed upon arrival.

Avocado Green Firm Queen Mattress

The Green Mattress from Avocado is one of the brand's bestsellers, and is ranked high in Weiler and his team's book because it provides great support and passed with perfect numbers in their durability tests. "The only real quibble is that it’s only average for stability," says Weiler. "But owners say they are very satisfied with this brand in our surveys, and they give it a very good rating for comfort as well." Plus, it comes in various firmness settings, including your standard firm, medium and plush for an additional cost.
