2. Queen Siena Mattress: $799 $399 at Siena Sleep
Our Siena memory foam mattress review calls this one of the best memory foam mattresses for those on a budget. It's also one of the best mattresses for stomach sleepers thanks to its firm support. Right now there's $300 off all sizes of the Siena Mattress. This is an evergreen Siena mattress sale, but it's still fantastic value for a budget mattress. After discount, a queen costs $399 and a twin is only $199.

3. Queen Casper Snug mattress: $495 $371.25  at Casper 

3. Queen Casper Snug mattress: $495 $371.25  at Casper 
The Casper Snug is one of Casper's most affordable beds and a basic, budget-friendly mattress from a major brand. There's currently 25% off the Casper Snug, which takes the price of a queen size mattress down to $371.25 (was $495).  However, keep in mind that this is marked final sale, meaning it's non-returnable and non-exchangeable.

4. Queen Linenspa Memory Foam Hybrid Mattress: $319.99 $256 at Linenspa  
Our Linenspa Memory Foam Hybrid Mattress review loved the way this bed cradles the body during sleep, and it's also available in different heights (I reccomend the 10 inch version). Right now, there's a 20% off sitewide sale over at Linenspa, a great deal which slashes the price of a queen down to just $256. Linenspa offers a 10-year limited warranty and free shipping and 30-day returns, but be aware that no trial period is available.

5. Queen SweetNight Twilight Hybrid Mattress$839.99 $429.99 at SweetNight

5. Queen SweetNight Twilight Hybrid Mattress$839.99 $429.99 at SweetNight
The fiberglass-free Twilight Hybrid is SweetNight's best hybrid mattress, and comes in three height options: 10", 12" or 14". Pocketed coils provide breathability and better motion isolation, while gel-infused foam offers temperature regulation. A queen-size is currently $429.00, saving you $410, with all SweetNight mattresses coming with free shipping and returns, 100-night sleep trial, and a 10-year warranty. 

What size is a queen mattress?

In the US, a queen size bed the most popular mattress size - and it's small wonder.  At 80 inches long and 60 inches wide, the best queen size mattresses are ideal for couples and solo sleepers who want some extra room to stretch but don't have the room for a king-size. However, if you're a solo sleeper who likes a lot of room but doesn't have the most spacious bedroom, it may be best to go for a full instead.
