If you’re shopping 4th of July sales for an excellent value memory foam mattress from a top-rated brand, I highly recommend the new Emma Sleep sale. There you can save up to 60% on all Emma mattresses when you enter the discount code TOM10 at checkout.

Prices start from just $296 for the Emma Original memory foam mattress, which is fantastic value for money. A queen is discounted to $521, beating the brand’s Black Friday prices ($329 for a twin and $579 for a queen). It also undercuts major rivals such as the Nectar Memory Foam Mattress ($649 for a queen) and the cooling Cocoon by Sealy Chill ($699 for a queen).

My job involves testing a range of mattresses, and I recommend the Emma Original as one of this year’s best mattresses for all sleepers seeking a softer, contouring and affordable memory foam bed. At up to 60% off, this is right up there with the best 4th of July mattress sales I’ve seen.

Summary: I’ve slept on countless boxed mattresses for my job and the 10” Emma Original is one of the best memory foam mattresses for the money – it outperforms its small price tag, offering all-night comfort for side sleepers in particular. There’s no fancy spec here – just three layers of foam and a removable cover for washing – and yes there are better all-foam beds out there, but few deliver the comfort of the Emma Original at such a low price. It does smell a bit (off gassing) when you first unbox it, but that disappears quickly. It’s ready to sleep on within a few hours, and works with all bed frames. If you want a cheap memory foam mattress and you sleep on your side or stomach, I recommend the Emma Original. If you sleep very hot, don’t buy the Emma Original – consider the Cocoon by Sealy Chill instead (from $539 at Cocoon by Sealy).

Price history: There’s a monthly Emma mattress sale with discounts on both memory foam and hybrid mattresses, and it isn’t uncommon to find savings of up to 45%. The best price I saw on the Emma Original prior to this 4th of July sale was during Black Friday – a queen Original dropped to $579. So this new sale with up to 60% off all Emma mattresses is excellent value, especially with a queen Emma Original on sale for $521.

Benefits: 365-night trial | 10-year warranty | Free shipping
