Our Lux Mattress review praised the good temperature regulation for hot sleepers and the luxury design, but criticised the longer delivery times and non-removable cover.

Do mattresses go on sale for Black Friday in the UK?

Short answer: yes, and they are now live. While Black Friday sales originated in the US, UK brands now offer Black Friday savings. While some popular sleep brands such as Silentnight aren't offering Black Friday deals, other popular mattress companies such as Nectar, Eve, and Dormeo are holding huge Black Friday events with big price drops. 

While mattress brands tend to hold sales throughout the year, they can sometimes reserve their biggest savings for Black Friday. For example Eve Sleep tend to hold 35% off sales, but for Black Friday, they've knocked 60% all their mattresses. Some mattresses, however, have an evergreen discount. For instance, the Emma Original can sometimes be discounted up to 50%, but is currently on sale for 20% off.
