GhostBed do offer a 50% discount on a regular basis and their 4th July sales are no exception, however, you just never know when a brand is going to pull a sale and this is a deal too good to miss out on.

The Emma Hybrid Comfort has three layers of foam and a seven-zoned spring layer, making it particularly appealing to back and stomach sleepers despite its medium-firm comfort rating as it's a little on the firmer side. This mattress also does a great job of keeping sleepers cool thanks to the breathable cover, Emma’s own Point Airgocell foam and the coils which create more airflow. Emma is well known for running regular sales and whilst their July 4th sale isn’t as big as some of the larger holidays, we still think 50% off is a pretty decent  discount. A queen is down to $659 from $1,319. There’s also a free 365-night trial, free returns and a 10-year warranty. Plus, order your Emma mattress before 1 PM EST and it’ll ship out the very next day.

How long do mattresses take to ship?

How long your mattress takes to ship depends on the brand itself. You could be waiting as little as 24 hours up to 7 business days (and much longer, if your bed is custom made - more on that below). As a general rule of thumb, mattress-in-a-box companies will ship faster. This is because the mattresses are vacuum-packed, put in a box and stored in a factory so that it’s ready to go. 

Other brands, such as Saatva, handcraft their mattresses to order. This means you’ll have a longer wait time for your mattress to be shipped. Slightly longer wait times are usually the case for all traditional flat mattresses as they’re not as easy to handle as those in a box.

Some companies may also offer fast shipping for an additional fee. If you're in a rush for you new bed, it’s always worth checking  the shipping small print on brand websites. You might be pleasantly surprised as some brands include white glove delivery, which means they will take your mattress to a room of your choice and take care of the packing, some even remove your old mattress.
