Simba mattress sales and deals crop up regularly, and are a great way to save on one of these excellent beds. Right now, Simba is has knocked 40% off most of its mattresses (opens in new tab). You don't even need to input a Simba mattress discount code.
Simba makes some of the best mattresses for all-over body comfort. The 40% discount applies to Simba's cheaper foam-only models, as well as its core range of hybrids (see our Simba Hybrid review for a look at the original). In fact, the only model excluded is the newer eco-friendly latex option (see our Simba Go mattress review).
There's also 40% off the brand's bed frame range too (see our Simba Sirius Bed Base review), as well as up to 60% off Simba's refurbished models.
Unfortunately, the new year has brought with it ticket price increases on many of Simba's beds, but this is still a decent price for what you're getting. The brand has also decreased its trial period from a year back down to 200 nights, which is a bit disappointing.
Let's say you're after a Simba Hybrid in a double size – this is reduced by 40% at the moment, meaning you can get it for £647.40 rather than the standard price of £1,079 (up from £999 in December). That's a saving of almost £432. Head below for the rest of the best deals from the current Simba mattress sale...
Simba Hybrid Essential: was
£749 now from £449.40 at Simba (opens in new tab)
The cheapest of Simba's Hybrid range, the Essential features a pared-back three-layer (plus cover) design that nevertheless includes some of the same materials you'll find in the much pricier models – namely the Aerocoil microsprings and Simbatex foam. With 40% off, a double costs £539.40.
Simba Hybrid mattress: was
£799 now from £479.40 at Simba (opens in new tab)
This great-value mattress packs in a lot of high quality materials for a smaller price. The Simba Hybrid is breathable, made with 100% recyclable materials and suits all sleep positions. It doesn't have as many Aerocoil springs as its pricier siblings, but if you want an award-winning Simba at a low price, here it is. With 40% off, a double costs £647.40.
Simba Hybrid Pro mattress sale: was
£1,159 now from £695.40 at Simba (opens in new tab)
The Simba Hybrid Pro packs in 5,000 Aerocoil springs, which is twice the amount of the Hybrid Original. As such, it's comfier and has better airflow, with a natural wool top layer aiding temperature regulation. Those coils also help reduce motion transfer and this, coupled with Simba-Pure edge support, makes it a good choice for couples who like their own space in bed. You'll get a free mattress protector with your purchase here, too. A double is £959.40 with this deal.
Simba Hybrid Luxe: was
£1,579 now from £947.40 at Simba
(opens in new tab)The joint priciest of the Simba range (along with the GO), the Hybrid Luxe offers supreme comfort via 10 carefully engineered layers. There are different sized springs for bounce, ease of movement, and airflow through the bed, and foams for custom support. At the top you'll find a layer of bamboo-infused wool, which promises to keep you warm or cool, depending on the season. In this current sale, a double costs £1,379.40.
Simbatex Essential foam mattress: was
£399 now from £239.40 at Simba (opens in new tab)
This foam-only mattress is the cheapest of the range, and the basic but budget-friendly design includes Simbatex foam, which has an open cell design for better airflow and is infused with graphite to stop it trapping body heat. That sits on a supportive, high-density foam base, and there's an anti-allergenic cover topping it off. In this current Simba mattress sale, a double costs £299.40.
Simbatex Foam mattress: was
£679 now from £373.45 at Simba (opens in new tab)
The more advanced of Simba's two affordable, foam-only mattresses, the Simbatex doesn't have springs, but it does add a layer of firmer, Simba-response foam for added support compared to the Simbatex Essential, and the cover on this one is removable too. In the latest sale, a double costs £479.40.
Which Simba mattress should I choose?
There are three different mattresses to choose from and all of them feature in the current Simba mattress sale. These include the 12-time award-winning Simba Hybrid - read our Simba Hybrid mattress review for more - which is 25cm deep and has five different layers to boost your in-bed support, comfort and pressure relief. The Simba Hybrid is perfect for side-sleepers as it’s softer on the knees, hips and shoulders, and with the new 35% off discount code it currently has an even lower starting price of £421.85. For a cheaper alternative, consider the all-foam Emma Mattress - our Simba vs Emma comparison walks you through the pros and cons of each bed.
The Simba Hybrid Pro is a step up in terms of sleep engineering, with seven different layers to cradle and support your body during sleep. It is 28cm deep and uses 5,000 titanium Aerocoil springs for ‘gravity-defying support’. The Simba Hybrid Pro also has a temperature regulating layer, though the Hybrid Luxe below is your best bet if you sleep very warm. With a 35% discount, this one is now priced from £649.35.
The Simba Hybrid Luxe is the brand’s flagship mattress and the model that represents the best Simba mattress technology you can buy. The Hybrid Luxe is a plush mattress that sports 10 different layers and has a 31cm depth, so it’s much taller than the other two (get those extra deep fitted sheets at the ready!). It houses around 6,000 titanium Aerocoil springs, packing in 1,000 more than the mid-tier Hybrid Pro for extra support and bounce. Without a Simba discount the Hybrid Luxe is priced from £1,169, but in the sale you can buy it for the starting price of £759.85 instead.
All three are medium-firm, so if you prefer a softer mattress you’ll be better off with one of the best memory foam mattresses for cozy comfort instead. Nectar comes out on top there, closely followed by Saatva. To see savings from those brands, take a look at our round-ups of the biggest Nectar mattress deals and the Saatva mattress sale.
The Simba Hybrid Mattress scores a user review rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars, and is great value considering the high build quality for such a discounted price (remember, no discount code is needed). The Simba Hybrid is made with five individual layers, including Simba-Pure foam infused with graphite. This boosts the breathability of the mattress so that you don’t overheat during sleep. The 2,500 25mm conical pocket Aerocoil springs also aid breathability while providing bounce and comfort.
While the other Simbas are designed with thicker covers (750g), this one has a 500g hypoallergenic knitted cover, making it a good choice for people with allergies. The cover isn’t removable for washing though, so make sure you team it with a good mattress protector. You could even add on the best mattress topper for your budget while you’re breaking in the Simba Hybrid if needs be. It also has four handles for easy moving and rotation.
We’d recommend the Simba Hybrid to most sleepers as it’s supportive yet still cozy enough to keep you comfy in a side sleeper, stomach, back or combi position. There’s plenty of contouring and comfy foam here, and partnered with those coils it makes for a cool and relaxing night’s sleep. Simba offers a 10-year warranty on this model and you can test drive it for 200 nights. If you choose to return it during the trial period, returns are free for most of the UK.
For an equally affordable alternative, take a look at our guide to the best Dormeo mattress sales and discounts.
The Simba Hybrid Pro mattress comes with double the amount of springs of the Simba Hybrid and sports a natural and breathable wool layer. The 5,000 titanium Aerocoil springs mean it’s cooler than the above model too, but not as much as the Simba Hybrid Luxe below. Those springs, combined with the natural wool top layer, deliver good temperature regulation, so heat won’t pool beneath you during sleep.
The Simba Hybrid Pro has seven different layers compared to the Simba Hybrid’s five, and offers enhanced support and comfort for your entire body. The springs enable better body weight distribution, so you shouldn’t encounter any pain or pressure points when you’re lying down. The 750g knitted cover is thicker here too, but it doesn’t mean the mattress sleeps any warmer, thanks to those coils and a layer of open cell Simba-Pure foam with graphite (a cooling material).
If you share your bed with your partner and one or both of you regularly switches between positions, you should feel less motion from one another when sleeping on the Simba Hybrid Pro. There’s also good edge support, so you can both stretch out and snooze on every inch without fear of tumbling out of bed.
The Simba Hybrid Luxe Mattress packs in 10 layers compared to the Hybrid’s five and the Pro’s seven, giving you the maximum amount of in-bed comfort and support. It features Simba’s best sleep technology yet, so naturally it’s more expensive than its siblings. This is also the best Simba mattress discount for hot sleepers. Why? Because the Hybrid Luxe is built to offer high levels of temperature regulation and moisture control, wicking away sweat and dispersing heat so that it doesn’t build up in the mattress. This also makes it an ideal choice for surviving summer heatwaves.
The Simba Hybrid Luxe features the same 750g hypoallergenic knitted cover as the Simba Hybrid Pro, but most other features are a luxury upgrade. The top layer, for example, is made from 100% bamboo heat regulating wool, and there are 6,000 springs at work here to boost breathability, enhance comfort and relieve pressure. Like its siblings, the Simba Hybrid Luxe offers motion isolation (so you won’t feel your partner moving around so much) and defined edge support so you can spread out.
Also exclusive to the Luxe is the 40mm high carbon steel spring comfort layer, while it shares the same open-cell Simba-Pure foam layer (with graphite for cooling power) as the other Simba mattresses.
Simba mattress discounts on bedding
Simba sleep makes a range of bedding accessories too, ranging from top-rated sleeping pillows to a washable mattress protector, bed linen, a high quality mattress topper for boosting your in-bed comfort, and a highly coveted Orbit Weighted Blanket.
The Simba mattress sale enables you to save on all of these bedding accessories as long as you buy them together (in one order) with a Simba mattress. With a 35% discount, you could end up making the following savings on Simba bedding with a mattress purchase:
- Simba Hybrid Duvet – from £90.35 (was from £139) (opens in new tab)
- Simba Hybrid Pillow – from £70.85 (was from £109) (opens in new tab)
- Simba Performance Mattress Protector – from £64.35 (was from £99) (opens in new tab)
However, there are a couple of Simba bedding deals available without the need to purchase a mattress. For instance, the Simba Orbit Weight Blanket is 50% off, knocking the price as low as £84.50 (opens in new tab).
The Simba Hybrid Topper is 35% off, bringing the cost of a double to £226.85 (was £349) (opens in new tab) – but that's a new customer exclusive price.
Do I need a Simba mattress discount code?
No, you don’t need a Simba mattress discount code to take advantage of all the sale offers and deals. You may occasionally see codes on the site, but Simba automatically applies the savings for you. These are displayed immediately on items priced £300 and over. You’ll see the discount added to your shopping cart once you have added enough smaller items (such as bedding) to reach the qualifying amount for that particular deal.
That means you can simply browse the range of Simba mattresses and bedding on the site, pick your chosen products and head to the checkout without having to worry about typing in a discount code. Just remember: you need to spend £300 in one go for the deal to work. Depending on your order and where you live, you may need to pay a delivery fee on top.
Simba Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress deals: what you need to know
The Black Friday mattress deals historically bring with them the lowest prices of the year, and last year Simba followed this pattern. The Simba Black Friday 2022 sale kicked off around mid-November, with 45% off the whole range of mattresses, except for the very cheapest Simbatex Essential, which got a 40% discount. We regularly see 40% of deals at Simba, but this is the first time we've seen 45% off since the Boxing Day 2021 and the 2022 January sales). This deal continued right through Black Friday and was still in place the following week.
The pricing was as follows, for a double size:
- Simbatex Essential Foam: £269.40 (RRP £449)
- Simba Hybrid Essential: £455.95 (RRP £829)
- Simba Hybrid: £549.45 (RRP £999)
- Simba Hybrid Pro: £824.45 (RRP £1,499)
- Simba Hybrid Luxe: £1,181.95 (RRP £2,149)
- Simba GO: £1,181.95 (RRP £2,149)
What happened for previous Black Friday events?
Last year's discount was the same as we saw over Black Friday in 2021: 45% off the whole range, which at that time only had three or four mattresses in it.
However, RRP increases mean customers were paying more in 2022 than they were in 2021. Here was the pricing on the original Simba Hybrid for that sales event:
- Single: £356.95 (RRP £649)
- Double: £483.45 (RRP £879)
- King: £549.45 (RRP £999)
That year, deals of 30-35% off were pretty common, but anything above was much rarer. In the 2020 Simba Black Friday sale, there was 35% off all mattresses.
What can we expect to see for Black Friday 2023?
Over 2022, discounts of 40% were common, but it was rare to see anything better than that. We're seeing the same trend continuing into 2023, although note there was a price rise in January that means these beds aren't as cheap as they once were, even with the same percentage discounts. For Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2023, we're expecting the same 45% off discount we've seen over previous events.
Remember too that Simba sells through Amazon, but you'll typically find the same offer at both, and we'd always recommend buying direct from the brand where possible.
When can we expect to see these deals? The Simba Black Friday sales typically kick off mid-November, and run at least until the end of Cyber Monday – sometimes longer. If this brand takes the same approach in 2023, you'll have plenty of time so save, and should be safe to shop early without fear of missing the best price.
