    Promising review: "I was looking to help my son fill a small space in his house and give them a little guest-sleeping area. This futon sofa fits perfectly and is fairly comfortable for a futon. You don’t feel the center bar as much as with other futons and the fold-down cup holder is a nice addition." —Rita

    Shipping note: Delivery typically takes four days.

    Promising review: "I've had this couch for about three weeks and I LOVE IT! I was pretty hesitant about this considering it was cheaper than most I had found elsewhere. Many people are surprised I bought this from Walmart. I bought the blue velvet couch. The color is exactly what I wanted and true to the advertisement. I don't think it's too firm at all. I am usually laid out with a pillow and blanket to watch TV and I find it comfortable. My daughter and I both slept on this last night and it was fine." —Bailey

    Get it from Walmart for $279+ (available in three colors under $300 and one over).

    Shipping note: Delivery typically takes two days.

    Promising review: "This is a very affordable futon and I am overall pleased with the product. The color is great, exactly as it looked online. Putting it together was easy. Each section reclines independently, which is great. Fits two people, seated, with plenty of space, and up to three total, unless everyone is super small! The tufted cushions definitely help with comfort. I was pleasantly surprised by the cushions. It is definitely thicker than other futons I have used. We have had a guest sleep on it and he reported that he slept just fine. Our cat loves it and sleeps on it daily!" —Ryan

    Get it from Walmart for $197.42 (available in gray and black).

    13. A Novogratz full-size futon boasting button-tufted detailing that makes it look way ~fancier~ and more expensive than it really is.

    The Home Depot

    Shipping note: Delivery typically takes around two weeks

    Promising review: "For an inexpensive couch, this is a good buy! It’s light and easy to set up, so for someone who moves around a lot or lives alone, this is a great choice. For someone with back problems like me, it’s great because the back is relatively stiff and at an almost 90-degree angle. All in all, for the price, this couch is great!" —Lo

    Get it from the Home Depot for $268.77+ (available in six colors, four under $300 and two over).

    Shipping note: Delivery typically takes around two weeks.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 4-year-old grandson who has outgrown his toddler bed. He really loves it and sleeps so well in it. His room isn't very big, and the size is perfect. It's about a foot shorter than a regular twin bed and just as wide. Not messy looking. It's good as a couch, too." —Cindy

    Get it from Walmart for $132.63+ (available in dark gray and black).

    15. A sophisticated linen futon designed to have a split back so you can happily sit up and finish those last few rounds of Mario Kart while your S.O. puts their side down for a much-needed nap.

    Shipping note: Delivery times vary based on color and can range from two days to two to three weeks.

    Promising review: "I love this! I live in a small one-bedroom apartment, so I wanted a couch that could turn into a bed for guests. I couldn't have picked a better/cheaper option. I feel so good about this purchase! It's firm but comfortable. The back is adjustable, and the great thing is it looks like it's worth hundreds of dollars! If you're debating on going with this one, GO FOR IT!" —jackie

    Get it from Amazon for $242+ (available in three colors).

    Go ahead and take that futon nap, you deserve it.
