This year's Emma Mattress Boxing Day sale is now live and in it you can save up to 55% on a range of Emma mattresses, with free shipping to your door. Our favorite deal is 50% off the NextGen Premium with prices from £329. It's the perfect halfway house between the budget-friendly Emma Original and the more expensive yet more breathable Luxe Cooling Mattress, and right now you can buy a double size for £479.50 (was £959).
Emma Sleep features highly in our official best mattress guide for people seeking memory foam comfort on a smaller budget. The brand offers a 200-night trial on all of its mattresses, but shipping times vary massively. As of today the Emma Original ships within three to seven days, but the NextGen Premium takes three to six weeks. So if you need a new mattress urgently, you may be out of luck with Emma Sleep this Boxing Day unless you're happy with one of the brand's cheaper options.
If you can wait, the medium-firm Emma NextGen Premium hybrid mattress in a box is highly rated among users with hip and back pain, thanks to 7-zone body support with progressive firmness. It uses infinity pocket springs to boost airflow and keep you cool, with taller springs and Halo Memory Foam delivering better back support. The mattress gets softer around your shoulders and hips, making it a great choice for side sleepers too.
Emma NextGen Premium Mattress
Was: from £659
Now: from £329 at Emma Sleep
Summary: The Emma NextGen Cooling mattress is a step up from the super-cheap Emma Original (from £253 at Emma Sleep), and offers zoned support that we feel would suit sleepers with back pain. A combination of Halo Memory Foam and infinity pocket springs transform the Emma NextGen Premium Mattress into a clever bed that delivers extra support to the back, while boosting the softness and comfort around the hips and shoulders. It's therefore a great choice for side sleepers dealing with hip and back pain. It has a breathable cover too, so while it isn't the most cooling Emma Mattress, it's certainly capable of wicking away and dissipating excess body heat to keep you cool during sleep. However if you overheat during bed we'd recommend looking at the Emma Luxe Cooling Mattress (from £418 at Emma Sleep) instead. If you want a cheaper Emma mattress that isolates movement for each individual – good if you’re sharing with a restless partner – then try the all-foam Emma Original instead (read our Emma Original mattress review for more).
Price history: There are monthly Emma mattress sales and deals to save you money on the RRP, so it's rare to ever pay full price on an Emma Sleep bed with the exception of the Zero Gravity Mattress. During the Boxing Day sales you can get 50% off the Emma NextGen Premium mattress, bringing the price of a double down to £479.50 instead of £959. So if you’re looking for a comfy new mattress to upgrade your sleep in 2024 and you have your heart set on an Emma, this year's Boxing Day sales are your last big chance to buy an Emma mattress for significantly less.
Benefits: 200-night trial | 10 year guarantee | Free delivery
