If you're in the market to buy a new mattress, but don't want to shell out a ton of money, you may be worried about having to choose from a limited selection. Fear not — now is a great time to think about getting a new mattress. We have all types of mattresses that are suited to fit any budget and sleep style.

While there are plenty of luxury mattresses out there, you don't need to spend a lot to get the bed and the comfort you want and need. We recently partnered with lifestyle blogger Jessica Ashcroft from 'Love Love Love' to help her select a new mattress for herself. As part of her search for the perfect mattress, she helped us by sharing some of her own tips to find your very own best affordable mattress.


Jessica's No. 1 tip for finding the perfect mattress was to set a budget: “Before you go mattress shopping, decide on a budget and determine the absolute most you want to spend. Remember, you're investing in your sleep, and a great mattress is often worth a few extra dollars!"

To help make your search for the best bed even easier, we've hand-selected our favorite mattresses, so you can find what works best for you. If you're looking for the best affordable mattress, here are some of the best that Mattress Firm has to offer… and did we mention they're all under $1,000?!

tulo 10″ Medium Mattress


What is the best mattress, you ask? This is the one that Jessica selected for herself. As Mattress Firm's version of a bed-in-a-box, tulo mattresses range in price from $550-$850. And, they feature a top layer of High Density Coolflow Ventilated Memory Foam to keep air moving consistently through the mattress. This responsive foam won't cave in or sag after a few hours, and its breathability helps it maintain a consistent temperature so you don't wake up overheated in the middle of the night. Even better, all tulo mattresses are delivered right to your door. Mattress Firm will even set it up for you. All you have to do is lay down and enjoy!

Never heard of a tulo? That shouldn't deter you from checking it out now. Jessica recommends you try each type of mattress before selecting the one you bring home: “There are so many different types of mattresses now, so be sure you give each one a chance. You may just discover the bed you never knew you needed! Take your time with your “test drive" and don't forget to ask the Mattress Firm associates for their recommendations based on your sleep position and preferences."

When you finally bring your mattress home, it might not be what you expected. Jessica encourages shoppers to give it time: “It takes time for your new mattress to get adjusted to your body. So, give your body and your mattress time to get acquainted! You don't want to give up a good thing too early."

But if after a week or so, you still aren't sleeping better, it’s time to check out your sleep trial policy. Making sure your mattress has a return policy is one of the most important things you can do before making a purchase. Take it from Jessica: If after sleeping on your new mattress for a while and you decide it just isn't for you, take advantage of the return policy. Just make sure there is one! Mattress Firm has a 120-night sleep trial so you can “rest" assured you'll find the perfect mattress.
