We're still weeks away from the start of the holidays, but Cyber Monday mattress deals will be here before you know it. Cyber Monday is the biggest retail holiday of the year. This year, Cyber Monday will fall on November 28. However, Cyber Monday mattress deals will begin way in advance of November.
Mattress manufacturers wait all year to offer the biggest discounts on beds, duvets, pillows, mattress toppers, and more. Overall, it's a great time to upgrade to the best mattress you can afford.
You can expect to see mattress sales on premium beds, weighted blankets, pillows, duvets, mattress toppers, and all things bedroom related. If you've been waiting all year to make a purchase, Cyber Monday is when you'll want take action. Below we're rounding up last year's best Cyber Monday mattress deals along with predictions on what you expect to see in 2022.
When do Cyber Monday mattress deals begin?
Cyber Monday will fall on Monday, November 28 this year. However, we expect the best Cyber Monday mattress deals to begin in early November. Many deals will last through the first week of December, but we advise consumers to shop early to avoid shipping delays and/or stock shortages.
What stores offer Cyber Monday mattress deals?
This year every major mattress brand offered Cyber Monday mattress deals, with sales from the likes of Nectar, Saatva, Purple, and other sleep specialists, as well as from retailers including Mattress Firm. As evident from previous years, mattress brands tend to offer better discounts than retailers, such as Amazon. In addition, many mattress brands tend to bundle freebies like sheet sets, pillows, and mattress toppers during their Cyber Monday mattress deals. We've even seen brands that'll upgrade you to free white glove delivery. Big box retailers tend to steer away from these free gifts, which is why we recommend shopping direct from the mattress brands where possible to get the most value for your money.
How to buy the right Cyber Monday mattress
Buying a mattress online has never been easier. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when shopping online.
- Materials: One of the first decisions you'll need to make is the type of mattress you want. Mattresses can be made of memory foam, innersprings, latex, or a hybrid (a combination of memory foam and innersprings). Most bed-in-a-box mattresses brands use memory foam so that the mattress can be compressed when they're shipped.
- Return policies: Most mattress brands offer generous return policies of a least 100 days. Others like DreamCloud and Nectar offer a year to test out your mattress. When you shop online, you can't test out a mattress, so make sure you know the return policy before you buy a Cyber Monday mattress.
- Warranties: Buying a mattress is a major financial purchase. As a result, you'll want to know how long your mattress warranty will last. Many mattress companies offer at least a 10-year warranty. Saatva has a 15-year warranty, whereas Avocado offers a 25-year warranty.
Cyber Monday mattress deals vs Black Friday
Mattresses are on sale throughout the year. However, the best deals can be found on Cyber Monday. That's not to say Thanksgiving and Black Friday had bad sales. However, you'll be able to save a few more money if you wait for Cyber Monday mattress deals to begin. That said, we're noticing a lot of shipping delays and backorders this year. So the best mattress sale will be the one you can actually purchase. Our advice is to wait if you can, but otherwise purchase early to avoid any delays or shortages.
Should I buy now or wait for Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday mattress deals offer the cheapest prices of the year. If you can afford to wait until November 28, we strongly advise on holding off on any major mattress purchases. If you need a new mattress now, there are always sales readily available you can shop today. However, generally speaking, you could save from $200 to $500 more if you wait till November to make your purchases.
Last year's best Cyber Monday mattress deals
1. Nectar Memory Foam mattress: from
$798 $499 + $399 free gifts at Nectar (opens in new tab)
Best value: The Nectar Memory Foam Mattress sits at number one in our mattress rankings (opens in new tab) - it's fantastic value for money. We found this mid-range, medium firm option to be extremely comfortable and supportive when we reviewed it (opens in new tab), with excellent pressure relief for your shoulders, hips, and back. If you like to be cushioned while you sleep, you'll get on well with it. However, if you regularly overheat at night, try the Saatva Classic below. This mattress comes with a year-long trial so you can make sure it's right, and there's a forever guarantee. For Cyber Monday, a queen costs $799 (was $1,298), with two free cooling pillows, sheets and a mattress protector thrown in.
2. Saatva Classic Mattress: from $887 - save up to $250 at Saatva (opens in new tab)
Best luxury: We love this luxurious, hotel-quality hybrid innerspring mattress. It's been approved by the Congress of Chiropractic State Associations, and combines cushioning eco-friendly foams with a durable, two-layer coil support system. We rated the Saatva Classic 4.5/5 stars (opens in new tab): it's very comfortable, provides great support in all sleeping positions, and is a good for hot sleepers too. If you also like a little bounce, it's a top choice. There are three firmness options and two heights, and you get free white glove delivery. With our exclusive deal, there's $250 off when you spend $1,000 (applies to sizes twin XL and bigger). That reduces a queen size from $1,595 to $1,345 - that's $100 cheaper than on the Saatva site.
3. Cocoon Chill Memory Foam mattress: from
$769 $499 + free pillows and sheets at Cocoon (opens in new tab)
Best budget cooling: While many mattresses claim to wick away heat, we found (opens in new tab) that the Cocoon Chill Memory Foam mattress does a very good job of keeping you cool while you sleep - it's a great option for hot sleepers who love the feel of memory foam. It's medium-firm, with plenty of cushioning and support, and very good at reducing motion transfer, so you won't notice a partner getting in and out of bed. Right now it's $30 off the lowest price we've seen, with a twin at $499, and a queen reduced from $1,239 to $799 - plus you get free pillows and a sheet set added to your order.
4. DreamCloud Hybrid Mattress: from
$1,198 $699 at DreamCloud (opens in new tab)
Best-value hybrid: There's a whopping $500 off the popular hybrid DreamCloud mattress for Cyber Monday. We highly recommend it for anyone who liked the sound of the Nectar mattress at number one, but doesn’t want an all-foam option. It's medium-firm, and 14-inches deep, giving it more cushioning and support than most other mid-range mattresses. It isn't quite as plush as the premium Saatva Classic, but at $999 for a queen (down from $1,598) it's a few hundred dollars cheaper. And like the Nectar, it comes with $399-worth of free gifts too (including free sheets, so you won't have to worry about them fitting). There's also a year-long trial and forever warranty.
5. Tempur-Cloud mattress: from
$1,669 $1,189.30 at Tempur-Pedic (opens in new tab)
Best Tempur for pressure relief: The big 40% off Tempur-Essential discount has ended, but the brand's Cyber Monday mattress deals continue with 30% off the Tempur-Cloud. This is the Tempur you want if you often feel pressure in your hips, shoulders, back and knees when lying down, as the Cloud delivers high pressure relief on all of those areas. It also minimizes motion transfer, so you shouldn't get woken up so easily by your partner moving. This 30% discount is one we've seen before, but it still gets you a queen size Tempur-Cloud for $1,399.30.
