Best Walmart Mattress Reviews

This is your ultimate guide to the best Walmart mattress in a box.

Last Updated: September 14, 2020

Jeff Rizzo

In this review we discuss the top rated Walmart mattresses, including those that ship in a box. We made sure to select a memory foam mattress, pillow top mattress, and several others. Our goal is to help you wade through the mess and selected the best mattress for you, whether that’s a twin, queen, king, or some other size. Keep in mind that Walmart is all about getting the most for your money. As such, you will not typically find luxury beds at Walmart stores, or on the company’s website.

Best Walmart Mattress

Best Walmart Mattress Overview

While Walmart offers dozens of mattresses on their website and in-store, there are very few that we consider to be worth your time or money. Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you and have reviewed several more than a few legitimately nice mattresses.

Jump-To Links For This Best List

Keep in mind that we have not tried every single mattress at Walmart, though, we feel confident we’ve tested most of the ones that are worthwhile. In the sections below we have mini reviews on each of our selections so you can learn even more. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email.

Walmart Mattress Review: Top 5 Beds

Consumers shopping on the Walmart.com site search for a range of mattress options. Along with searches around twin, full, queen and king mattress sizes, consumers also search Walmart mattress reviews and Walmart mattress in a box reviews. The rundown of mattresses here is a representative handful of where searchers land.

Allswell Luxe — Editor’s Choice

Keep in mind that we have not tried every single mattress at Walmart, though, we feel confident we’ve tested most of the ones that are worthwhile. In the sections below we have mini reviews on each of our selections so you can learn even more. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email.

allswell mattress review the luxe hybrid
Allswell Luxe has a soft foam feel

Firmness — We call Allswell Luxe a “Medium” on our soft/firm scale. That means that it’s no extra soft nor firm, but rather somewhere in between. It should be good for all sleeping positions and especially good for people that rotate sleeping positions at night.

According to a survey we ran with over 2,000 people, about 91% of respondents said that they rotate sleeping positions during the night. We would therefore expect Allswell Luxe to be suitable for the vast majority of sleepers.

Allswell Luxe is an accommodating mattress that almost everyone will like

Accommodating Feel — If you take the firmness rating together with Allswell Luxe’s soft foam feel, you get a bed that’s highly comfortable and accommodating. We should mention that while it’s a nice option for various sleep styles, it’s not your best option if you’re a strict back or stomach sleeper that needs an ultra firm mattress. Remember, it’s in the middle in terms of firmness.

Why Allswell Luxe Made The List — To be quite frank, this is a really nice mattress. We were surprised to see that it retails at Walmart, and at such an affordable price point. This is a 12″ mattress with pocketed coils, poly foam, gel swirl memory foam, and a quilted cover. It has all the trappings of a $1,500 mattress, even though it’s around $650 for the queen size. You can check Walmart.com for the current price.

Sealy Posturepedic — Best Pillow Top Mattress At Walmart

A look at the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid

Design — You’ll notice that the bed we have, pictured above, looks a bit different from the one on Walmart’s website. It’s primarily the same mattress, according to its construction, but different retailers will have beds with different aesthetics. In any case, a look inside this mattress reveals that it has pocketed coils for support, gel memory foam, and a plush pillow top.

Feel And Firmness — Overall, you’ll notice that the Posturepedic Performance mattress has a soft, sink-in feel. It’s incredibly comfortable and best for side sleepers that need a lot of pressure relief. You do sink in, especially with the pillow top, but you also get the support from the underlying coils.

Why You Should Consider Sealy Posturepedic — Sealy is one of the largest bedding brands out there. They make boxed mattresses, traditional retail store mattresses, and everything in between. At Walmart they have a number of different models from which you can choose, but the Response Performance is the one we like the most. This is a 14″ mattress with a plush pillow top and coils for support.

Walmart Pillow Top Mattress

The majority of beds sold on Walmart’s website are not technically pillow top mattresses. This is the case because they’re all usually budget-tier for people that just want a cheap mattress. Posturepedic Performance, on the other hand, does have the pillow top for added comfort. You can tell if a mattress has a pillow top if there’s a split between the normal portion of the mattress and its last comfort layer, as though it has just been layered on top.

Linenspa Hybrid — Best Memory Foam Walmart Mattress

It looks a little funny, but it’s a pretty nice memory foam mattress

Firmness Rating — Discussing firmness with a memory foam bed is a little difficult because memory foam tends to be softer in a warm room/climate and firmer in a cold room/climate. With that in mind, we’d consider this to be closer a “medium” so it can accommodate all sleeping styles.

Design — We think the overall look of the mattress is a little funny, but it does have plenty of the materials you’d see in a more expensive mattress. For starters, it has 8″ coils, 2″ of gel memory foam, and a pillow top.

That said, there’s nothing overly special. It doesn’t have an organic cotton cover nor does it have any cooling properties. It’s just a plain and simple memory foam hybrid.

We like this bed for all sleeping styles

We’ve noticed that this particular bed is in short supply on Walmart.com, but we do prefer it much more than the 8″ model.

Why You Might Like This Bed — If you’re a fan of memory foam, you will have that in spades with the Linenspa Memory Foam Hybrid. It has a deep, sink-in feeling that you’ll immediately recognize is memory foam. But it’s not just about the comfort layers, the bed also has coils for support.

The Allswell — Best Innerspring Walmart Mattress

Price — We would be doing you a disservice if we did not mention the price of this bed—it’s that great of a value. Last we checked on Walmart.com, The Allswell is around $300 for the queen bed. We may have other beds on this list that are cheaper, but you’ll notice a considerable drop off in quality from The Allswell and those beds. For the money, this is probably the best option.

Feel Of Allswell — We rate this bed as somewhere between a “medium” and “medium-firm” so it is on the firmer end of the spectrum. As such, you’ll notice that back and stomach sleepers will be most comfortable on The Allswell.

It also has innersprings for durability, which gives The Allswell a responsive, supportive feel. You definitely lay more on top of this bed and don’t get as much pressure relief as with Allswell Luxe.

Inside The Mattress — The bed starts with 6″ pocketed coils (aka innersprings) similar to what you’ll see on Allswell Luxe, Sealy Posturepedic, and Linenspa’s Memory Foam Hybrid. These coils add bounce and make the bed more durable than it otherwise would be. It also has a layer of memory foam that acts as the main comfort layer for the bed.

Why The Allswell Is A Great Walmart Bed — If you don’t get Allswell Luxe, for whatever reason, you should next turn your attention to The Allswell mattress. This is an incredibly affordable mattress that’s way nicer than the price tag would suggest.

Lucid 10” — Best Cheap Walmart Mattress

Lucid usually sells for around $250 on Walmart.com for the queen size. It’s hard to beat a sub-$300 price point for a queen size mattress. That said, for around $50 more you can get The Allswell mattress, which objectively is a nicer bed.

Firmness Options — One interesting feature about this bed is that it’s available in a Plush, Medium, and Firm. Most budget-tier beds come in just one firmness option, but with this particular model you can choose the firmness level that best fits your dominant sleeping style.

Mattress Feel — Unsurprisingly, the Lucid 10″ has a memory foam feel. It might be a little more expensive than the Zinus mattresses, but we do like that you get less of a “stuck” feeling with Lucid.

Why we chose Lucid — If you’re working with a very limited budget, the Lucid 10″ memory foam mattress is definitely worth considering. It’s available in three different firmness options so you can accommodate your sleeper type, and it’s comfortable if you like the feel of memory foam.

How We Selected The Best Walmart Beds

Picking the best Walmart mattresses was not as simple as just taking the five most popular beds from Walmart.com and calling it a day. We’ve tested and reviewed over 150 different mattresses, including several that sell through Walmart.

We took our broader list and made selections based on what consumers are searching for. As an example, rather than just making a few blind recommendations, we noted that consumers are looking for innerspring beds at Walmart, so we made sure to include several of those. Same things goes for twin mattresses and larger sizes such as a full, queen, and king.

For the record also, we monetize this site with affiliate links. Most of the external links that you see on this page are affiliate links. If you make purchases through our links on Walmart’s website, we may earn a fee. These fees do not affect whether we review a bed positively or negatively.

Buying A Mattress At Walmart

In contrast to shopping directly with a mattress brand, Walmart is a little funky. Most of the time, they offer free delivery and a 100-night test period. A lot of times mattresses on Walmart.com come with 2-day free shipping. They also have something called “Hassle-Free Returns,” meaning they will send someone to pick up the mattress in many cases.

Having said all of that, the shipping and return policies do change depending on who’s actually selling the mattress. If you see “Sold & Shipped by Walmart” then you’re most likely getting free returns. If you see another name such as “DropAir” the shipping/return policies might be different.

Additionally, all of the beds listed in this review come in major American mattress sizes. For instance, the most popular mattress size is a queen. We made sure all of these beds come in a queen. Same thing for the twin, full size, and king.

The Best Walmart Mattress In A Box

Allswell Luxe was chosen as editor’s choice best Walmart mattress in a box. One reason being that Allswell Home is actually owned by Walmart. If you look at the bottom ribbon of Walmart’s website, they usually list Allswell Home as a house brand.

Allswell Home, however, doesn’t just sell mattresses through Walmart. They actually have their own online retail store (AllswellHome.com), which is how most people get their bed in a box mattresses. So, when you search for a Walmart mattress in a box, Allswell is technically both sold by and owned by Walmart.

Second, Allswell Luxe is the best mattress in a box sold at Walmart, for all of the reasons we mentioned above. It’s just flat out a really nice bed in a box. Additionally, it’s available in a twin, full, queen, and king size.

Walmart Memory Foam Mattress

The most common type of bed at Walmart and elsewhere is a memory foam mattress. These beds typically have a viscose feel, meaning you slowly sink into the mattress. According to our recent survey (the same one we mentioned above), around 88% of people are “just fine with” or “love” memory foam.

Keep in mind that memory foam comes in different firmness levels, thicknesses, and densities, so not all memory foam mattresses will feel alike. If you were to go to Walmart and pick two random beds, chances are they would feel different even if they both included memory foam.

As an example, the Lucid 10″ has memory foam and so does the Sealy mattress, yet they feel nothing alike. Sealy has a feathery, fluffy feel, while Lucid has more of a traditional dense memory foam feel. As such, when you’re shopping for a memory foam mattress at Walmart, be mindful of the fact that they’re not homogenous in terms of feel and firmness.

Walmart Foam Mattress

Walmart sells numerous foam mattresses, though most of them are memory foam mattresses. One bed that you’ll see at certain retail Walmart stores is Tuft & Needle, which is one of our favorite soft foam beds. It has a neutral feel and is able to accommodate all sleep styles.

When searching for a foam mattress at Walmart you just need to pick which type of foam you prefer, whether that’s memory foam, latex foam, poly foam, etc.

Buying In Store vs Online

Determining whether to buy in store or buy online is one of the first decisions you’ll make when it comes time to purchase your new mattress. Each route comes with its own set of upside and downside. 

For example, buying from a store allows you to include the tactile element to your decision. On the other hand, you’ll have fewer choices in terms of manufacturer, size, and price. 

The elements of buying online are completely opposite of the elements around buying in store. In other words, you have near infinite choices in terms of finding your match around size and price, but you don’t get to try the mattress until it’s delivered to your door. 

Pros and Cons Of Buying A Budget Bed

When considering the purchase of a budget bud, it’s worth weighing the pros and cons to discern whether you’re making an economic decision based on value, or if you’re simply making a cheap decision that works for the time being. Both have their merits. Both have their drawbacks. 

In weighing the pros and cons of buying a budget bed, consider:

  • Whether the bed is a primary bed with nightly use or a spare bed for occasional guests
  • Whether the bed is for the long term or you plan on replacing it soon
  • Whether the bed is affordable and works in your budget

Considering buying a budget bed comes down to how these factors weigh within the context of personal circumstance.
