There are so many mattresses sold out there. But which one is the best cheap mattress? We have conducted our research and summarise it for you here.

How We Derived This List

We researched brand new mattresses and selected the best value mattress based on:

Warranty

We believe that the warranty shows how confident the manufacturer with its durability. That is why we try to not include the mattresses that are sold with 1 year warranty or less. Unless there is no other option such as the one under $100 category, or if the mattress is really good value.

Value for Money

We select mattress that is really value for money. Why should you pay $500, if there is another mattress with a price tag of $250 with the same material.

A mattress with a less layer should price less than a mattress with more layers. A mattress with high density foam has more value than ones with less density. We also believe that mattresses with springs are more durable and provide better support than foam mattresses. If the price is the same, we would choose a pocket spring mattress than innerspring (Bonnell spring) mattress, as a pocket spring mattress allows more body contour and pressure point relief.  

 

Price

We have researched various sites that offer the same mattress, and we found that the cheapest ones are the one linked here. We have taken into account the delivery fee.  We do not include mattresses with hefty delivery fee. 

Customer Reviews

There is no mattress out there that will satisfy 100% of the purchasers. We know this because even with the most known brand, or the most expensive mattress, has some negative reviews. It’s all about individual preference. But we only include mattresses with four star rating or more (out of five star). 

Based on the above criteria, here are the nominations and the winners:
