Many mattress shops are taking part in Black Friday promotions this November. We’ve rounded up our pick of the best Black Friday mattress deals to help you bag a bargain.
A decent mattress is key to helping you get a good night’s sleep. And let’s face it, who doesn’t need one of those right now?
With just a few days to go until Black Friday, we’ve found some bargain deals on some of our most popular mattresses.
All the products and deals listed here have been carefully selected by our experts, and each mattress has scored well in our independent lab tests. However, we haven’t rated them all Best Buys, so we recommend you check our thorough reviews to be sure a mattress is exactly right for you.
Black Friday mattress deals
Casper Essentials single mattress – now £206 (25% off, according to MattressOnline)
We like: easy to roll over on
We didn’t like: the deal is only available on the single version
This foam mattress from Casper is exclusively available at MattressOnline, after Casper stopped selling direct to UK customers early this year. The single version of this mattress currently has 25% off, but the double remains full price (£400). It’s worth keeping an eye on this the closer we get to Black Friday.
How did this mattress perform in our tough tests and will it stand the test of time?
Dreams Balearic D mattress – now £599 (£200 off, according to Dreams)
We like: coolness of the mattress
We don’t like: stability
This pocket-sprung mattress claims to contain recycled fillings and is covered in an upcycled yarn. This mattress has a cool feel to it, so is a good bet if you tend to feel warm when you sleep. This mattress, exclusive to Dreams, was £799 but the Black Friday deal has £200 off bringing it down to £599, which makes it cheaper than the average price of the pocket-sprung mattresses we’ve tested. We haven’t found it cheaper anywhere else.
Emma The Original double mattress – now £338.56 (36% off, according to Emma)
We like: durable
We didn’t like: only available online
This year, Emma is offering 35% off its mattresses for Black Friday. But if you use code FRIDAY36 you can save an extra 1%, taking the discount to 36% total. This takes the full price for a standard double (£529) down to just £338.56. You’ll also get three months’ free subscription to the Headspace app with your purchase. Just check the correct code is applied at checkout, as it may default to 35% off.
It’s not the cheapest we’ve ever seen the Emma mattress, but it’s still pretty good.
Eve Premium Hybrid – now £782 (35% off, according to Eve Sleep)
We like: supportive
We didn’t like: only available online
Eve’s Black Friday deal is 35% off its mattresses. In 2019, it offered 20% off its range so this year’s deal is a better saving. This mattress contains foam and full-sized pocket springs, which makes it a good bet if you’re struggling to decided between the two types. This hybrid structure comes at a cost though, as it will usually set you back nearly £1000. Any significant saving can only be a good thing, especially if it means the prospect of a decent sleep.
Luna Memory 1000 – now £280.79 (45% off, according to MattressOnline)
We like: the price
We don’t like: it’s a little awkward to rotate
This foam mattress is from Luna, a brand exclusive to MattressOnline. It has a 14cm foam core that’s combined with a 4cm layer of mini pockets springs, and topped with a 3cm layer of memory foam. Usually £475, this mattress has previously been on offer for around £299, so the deal price of around £280 isn’t bad. And it’s a lot less than the average price of the foam and memory foam mattresses we’ve tested. But will it do the most important job of supporting your back when you sleep?
Sealy Teramo 1400 – now £599 (50% off, according to MattressOnline)
We like: pocket springs
We didn’t like: confusing names make it hard to spot a real deal
The Sealy Teramo 1400 has been around for a while. You can also find it under a few different names, including the Nostromo 1400 and Latex 1400. This makes spotting a bargain trickier than it needs to be, especially when this mattress is available at multiple retailers, all with their own deals happening.
For example, at Furniture Village the Teramo has a £270 saving, bringing the cost to £799 for a double, under the name Latex Pillow Top 1400. But at MattressOnline you’ll find the same mattress for £599.91 under the name Posturepedic Nostromo Latex 1400 Pocket Pillow Top Mattress – a 50% saving.
This mattress is often on offer, so it’s really worth shopping around before committing to a deal.
Are Black Friday mattress deals worth it?
A new mattress can be an expensive purchase, but it’s always worth shopping around to find a bargain.
While you’ll see a flurry of special offers and discounts as we approach Black Friday, not all Black Friday deals are good value. You’ll find some mattresses on sale throughout the year, and usually you’ll find deals and offers in the January sales, around the Easter holidays and the late summer bank holiday.
Whatever you buy, it won’t matter how much money you’ve saved in a Black Friday deal if the mattress you end up with isn’t suitable for how you sleep.
We test mattresses for front, back and side sleepers, and we reveal how breathable, warm or cool a mattress is. Plus, we put them through tough durability tests, simulating 10 years of use, to find out whether they’ll maintain their support for years to come.
That’s why it’s always worth reading our mattress reviews and comparing test results to make sure you invest wisely.
All the prices above are for UK doubles and are correct as of 23 November 2020. All prices are subject to change.
