When it comes to mattresses, you might think that the decision between foam, innerspring, or hybrid should be based solely on feel. While that’s obviously an important consideration, it’s not the only one—temperature is equally important. If you’re a hot sleeper, standard advice is to avoid foam, as regular memory foam isn’t exactly breathable and tends to absorb heat. But what if you love the ultra cushioning of a memory foam mattress and you tend to wake up sweaty? What’s a hot sleeper to do?

Fortunately, there’s an alternative: gel-infused memory foam. Gel counteracts the heat-absorbing qualities of foam, helping you stay cooler without sacrificing the plush comfort of foam. So where can you find this unicorn mattress? Start with Idle Sleep. This brand specializes in affordable gel-infused mattresses, and we scored you a promo code so you can get it for even less.

Idle Sleep has five different mattresses to choose from, starting with the original Idle Mattress. It’s made up of five layers: two 100 percent cotton fireproof cloth barrier layers, a 7″ high-density foam base for superior stability, a 2″ transition foam layer for extra responsiveness and breathability, a 3″ cooling foam layer, and a washable quilted cover for extra comfort. That’s a whopping 12″ for under $1,000! Not only that, but Idle Sleep’s rapid response technology prevents sink holes—aka, those body-weight dents in the mattress—so you’ll stay supported while you sleep.

Looking for something even plusher? The Idle Plush has an extra 2″ for a seriously soft slumber. There’s also the Idle Hybrid, which offers greater support thanks its combo of foam and spring coils, and, even better, has a double-sided construction so you can flip the mattress every few months and make it last longer. And if foam just isn’t for you, there’s the Idle Latex, available in eco-friendly Dunlop and Talalay options.

Besides free shipping, each Idle Sleep mattress comes with an 18-month trial period and a lifetime warranty (a good thing, since we all know ordering online can be a bit risky). Plus, every mattress purchase includes with two free pillows, so you’ll get a whole new bedroom upgrade, too. But the best part? Right now, AT readers get 20 percent off sitewide using code AT20OFF, plus two free pillows with mattress purchase. In addition, AT readers get a free adjustable mattress base with code ATADJUST (offers cannot be combined). Hurry though—this offer is only valid through Nov. 14!
