Sleep easy: Amazon's bestselling mattress cover is on sale for just $18, today only

Updated ·5-min read

Mattress covers are one of those things you never usually think about until you really need it. Then, you either thank your lucky stars you've got a good one, or curse the fact that you never got around to buying one. A mattress can be ruined by spills or bodily fluids, and you don't want to have to shell out hundreds, even thousands, for a new one. Haven't gotten a protector yet? Well, here's your chance to fix that. Amazon has slashed the price of its bestselling SafeRest Hypoallergenic Waterproof Mattress Protectors. Now, you can snag this mattress saver in queen size for just $18 with an on-page coupon (was $38).

This waterproof protector saves your mattress from spills and stains. It also feels soft to the touch and won't rustle when you move in bed.

There's so much to love about this mattress protector. For starters, it's 100 percent waterproof, so it keeps spills, urine and sweat away to ensure your mattress stays in good shape. It also is vinyl-free and has a hypoallergenic cotton terry surface with a membrane back coating, so no squeaking when you move around in bed.

It even blocks out allergens like dust mites and protects against bacteria growing on your mattress.

The SafeRest Mattress Protector has a fitted sheet design that works on mattresses up to 18 inches deep. Choose between twin, twin XL, full, queen, king and California king sizes for a fit that's just right for your mattress.

This mattress protector has an army of loyal fans — more than 183,000, to be semi-precise — and the testimonials are incredible. "My wife went into labor a year and a half ago, and that labor went very quickly that she ended up giving birth on our bed in the presence of EMTs," a five-star reviewer said. "The next day, once things had calmed down, I went home to clean up before they came home. For those who have witnessed or gone through childbirth, you know what a mess I arrived to.... Let's just say I was fully expecting to be purchasing a new mattress. To my amazement, once I'd bagged our sheets and this mattress pad, our mattress was perfectly fine. I bought another one immediately and will continue to use this brand."

A fellow fan said they decided to get a SafeRest after one of their cats peed on their bed. "It's crinkle-free, no plastic rustling or crinkling sounds when you touch it, which was honestly my biggest concern. Little noises really irritate me, but thankfully this is silent!" they said. "It fit my mattress easily with plenty of depth and is thin enough that my regular mattress pad still fit over it, as well as sheets, without any problem. I'm very happy with this mattress cover; hopefully it won't ever be necessary again, but it was a painless $30 to spend on peace of mind." Of course, you won't be spending $30; the on-page coupon makes this yours for just $24.
