Quite Possibly the Best Deal Ever on a Mattress in a Box

Amazon’s sleeper is the cheapest it’s ever been

Casper, Saatva, Helix, tulo, Purple, Eight, Snuz … Everybody’s in love with the mattress-in-a-box idea. So no surprise that Amazon has its own take, via their in-house AmazonBasics line.

The AB Mattress features three foam layers, including a memory foam top and two additional layers of breathable foam (one soft, one hard). Note that this is a softer mattress (a “3-5 firmness of a scale of 10”), so if you want something a bit more rugged, consider looking elsewhere. There are literally dozens of competitors to choose from.

But nobody’s offering a queen-size bed for $207, now the lowest price ever on Amazon and several hundred dollars cheaper than any name competitor’s mattress. Plus, free shipping.  (Note: Other sizes of the mattress besides queen are also on sale.)

It’s backed by a one-year limited warranty and features a 30-day return policy — though reviews on Amazon (where it rates a solid 4.2 out of 5 stars) suggest that the company will probably just allow you to keep it or donate it if you’re unhappy.
