Best Mattresses Under 300 Dollars

Way back in 2009 I would have said that memory foam problems were too common in beds under $300 to make a purchase worthwhile. No more!

LUCID by LinenSpa 8"
Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars
More than 3,000 reviews. 60% of buyers gave it the highest score possible.

Do you like firm beds? Michelle finds that soft mattresses make her ache. But she also hates waking up with her arms tingling from sleeping on a too hard surface. She bought the Lucid 8 inch and put off posting any comments for months until she could say for sure that she loved it.

What Michelle likes about the Lucid 8 inch memory foam mattress will make for some high quality dream time for you if you also like a firm bed. It has two inches of three pound density cushy top on a 6 inch high density foam base.

Do you have kids? The Maniac stopped counting buyers who said that their kids loved the feel of this bed. Moms like it too because it's light enough for most kids to easily move it to change the sheets, even in bunk beds. Never too early to get them started with good habits, right?

Are you a soldier being deployed overseas? Or do you know one? You've heard how bad the beds are, right? Several soldiers stationed in Afghanistan say that this bed was a must have item that made a real positive difference in their lives. Lucid Spa is one of the few mattress companies that will ship to an APO/AE address in the Middle East or elsewhere.

    What Buyers Like:
  • Less than half the cost of Tempur-Pedic
  • Great for guest rooms, trundle beds and dorms
  • Noticeable 'new mattress' smell. Goes away in 2-3 days
  • 20 year warranty - gives peace of mind buying online

These best mattresses are often on sale, you can check current prices at the link above.

This model is more plush than the Lucid beds. Tammy has back pain, but says lying down on most memory foam feels like she's resting on a stone slab. She loves the soft feel of her Best Price 8 inch bed. It has 2 inches of top memory foam which contains green tea and charcoal for long term freshness. It also has an additional 2 inches of softer standard foam to provide deep down cushioning that's like a hug.

Do you have arthritis? This is a bed that you will appreciate. Even though its not as tall as some beds you might have tried, it is more cushioning. Because of the way that the bed envelops you, it might also sleep just a bit warmer than what you're used to. But the warmth is wonderful on sore joints.

Pregnant women appreciate its deep support too. Late in term when you're huge it really helps you to sleep if your bed can carry some of the weight. You might not even need a special pillow for pregnancy.

    What Buyers Say:
  • Like physical therapy for your back, while you sleep
  • Stronger latex paint odor upon opening. Usually gone within 3 days, sometimes a week.
  • Ridiculously low price for the value

A Best Buy Overall, buyers say that it's incredibly comfortable for the price. And these best mattresses are a real deal for the money you pay, especially if you can catch them on sale. Click for prices at the link at the beginning of the review.
