It’s no secret that I’ve tested a lot of pillows at Apartment Therapy. After years of sleeping on pillows of every make and feel (it’s a hard life I live), there are a few that stand out. In particular, I always recommend the Lauren Ralph Lauren Logo pillow to anyone who asks for pillow advice, particularly if they’re searching for something budget-friendly. That’s why I’m here right now, in fact — to tell anyone who will listen that this pillow is currently 60 percent off at Macy’s, and you should definitely snag it while it’s on sale.

So what makes this pillow so great? You can read my full review here, but let me give you the highlights. First of all, it’s Comfortable (yes, with a capital C). It has a down alternative fill that feels exactly like the real thing, except it’s hypoallergenic and doesn’t involve any animals. You can choose between three different densities, a perk that isn’t always available when it comes to pillow shopping. I sleep on the extra firm option, which I highly recommend to side sleepers (although I do sleep on my stomach occasionally and have no issues). Don’t be scared off by the “extra firm” name — it’s the perfect combination of supportive and comfy, and it definitely does not feel hard.

Secondly, the price is unbeatable for the quality. It’s typically priced at $20, which is actually a pretty decent price compared to similar styles, but it’s pretty much always marked down at Macy’s. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of pillows that cost four times that amount, but most people don’t actually need those extra features. It gets the job done — and really well, I might add. During the 2-Day Home Sale happening right now, it’s 60 percent off (!!), making it just $7.99. Grab two for your bed, and maybe add a few more to spread the love to your own friends and family.

And if you’re looking to give yourself a bigger bedding upgrade, that’s not the only bedding essential on sale right now. Searching for a cozy comforter that won’t break the bank? Martha Stewart’s down alternative comforter (another editor favorite!) is just $48 (normally $120); Charter Club Damask Striped Sheets, another recommendation of mine, are $85 (normally $170) for Queen size; and this highly reviewed plush weighted blanket is 60 percent off. Check out the entire sale here, and act fast because these deals end on Mar. 10 — aka tomorrow!
