Best Black Friday mattress deals 2021

Black Friday mattress deals for 2021 have officially ended, but there are still some superb sales running at some of the biggest sleep brands in the UK. Our favourite saving is still 45% off on any Nectar mattress (memory foam and hybrid), with prices temporarily reduced to £312.95. That's closely followed by Simba's 45% off mattress bundles - there’s a maximum saving of £1,610 here. 

Emma Sleep, the brand behind our best mattress top pick, continues its discounts with 40% of all mattreses - this is 5% less than the super-popular Black Friday mattress deal offering 45% off the Emma Original, but it's still a good saving on an excellent affordable mattress for all sleepers. There are plenty of other great offers to choose from too, and here we’ve rounded up the best deals that are still live.

So whether you want to a stunning new mattress for your main bed, or a good quality budget mattress for your guest bedroom, we have you covered.

When shopping Black Friday mattress deals or any other type of sale, our advice is to get clear on which type of mattress would suit you beforehand. That, and only buy a mattress that comes on a risk-free trial basis.

If you enjoy the feel being hugged during sleep, look at memory foam mattresses. For those who sleep hot, check out hybrid and cooling mattress deals. Each type offers good motion isolation and pressure relief, making them suitable for a range of body types, as well as for couples and restless sleepers.

Should I wait until Black Friday to buy a mattress?

This year's Black Friday mattress deals are now officially over, but there are plenty of sales still live (many of them have simply rebrand as Cyber Monday or Cyber Week offers). 

A mattress is an essential item in the home. If you need your mattress right away, there are still lots of great deals around right now, though we do expect prices to begin rising again as of December. In general, summer is the time of year when mattress prices are highest, while Black Friday and Cyber Monday at when they are at their lowest, followed by February when retailers try to entice people into buying again.

Our tip is to never pay full price for your mattress unless you really have to. Lots of sales happen throughout the year, the best of which are almost always around Black Friday in November. Other US holidays like Memorial Day (the last Monday of May), Labour Day (the first Monday of September), and the 4th of July usually also offer sales on mattresses.

The sleep industry also tends to hold sales in January, as this is when they clear out their old stock. Last off, don't forget about Prime Day in July, where Amazon offer sales on lots of their products — including mattresses, of course. Although good mattresses can be found cheaply on Amazon, we recommend sticking to trusted brands like Emma, Simba, and Casper when shopping there.
