These are the only mattress deals worth buying this Black Friday − we've tried them all

A good mattress should bear your weight, keep you cool, relieve pressure and align your spine. Many specialist stores incorporate temperature-regulating technology and employ delivery drivers to drop your mattress to your door. But you'll have to pay for the privilege: some of the best mattresses cost thousands of dollars. 

When it comes to mattresses, it pays to shop the sales. If you take advantage of the best Black Friday mattress deals, you could bag a luxury organic mattress or a high-tech hybrid for a fraction of the price. 

As H&G's resident sleep writer, I know where to buy the best mattress at the best price. And, as a shopping writer, I can tell the difference between a good deal versus a low price on a poor product. I've spent hours searching the specialist sleep sites to bring you the very best Black Friday mattress deals.

Every single mattress on this list is tried and trusted by our sleep experts. We sleep on mattresses for months, if not years, to monitor their performance over time. We evaluate each mattress on the basis of comfort, cooling properties, edge and weight support, motion isolation, sustainability, and the all-important price. If you want to learn more about a mattress, you'll find more detail in our mattress reviews.

Black Friday Mattress Deals FAQs

When is Black Friday?

This year, Black Friday falls on November 24. You'll see deep discounts on mattresses in store, as well as online at specialist sleep sites. You can also bag small and large appliances, tech, toys, and much more for less on Black Friday. And you don't have to wait until the big day to start shopping: some of the best Black Friday home deals have already dropped.

Where is the best place to buy a mattress?

It depends what you're looking for. If you want to take stock of all your options, head to Mattress Firm, and take their Mattress Matcher quiz to find your perfect fit. Buyers on a budget should shop at stores like Emma and Siena, which make memory foam mattresses and supportive hybrids for hundreds, rather than thousands, of dollars. If you have a little more cash to spare, and you're shopping for the best mattress money can buy, you should take advantage of the deep discounts running at Saatva and Plushbeds this Black Friday. 

Which mattresses are best?

Which mattress is best is partly a matter of personal preference, and also a question of sleep style. Certain sorts of sleepers are best supported by particular mattresses. 

If you sleep on your side, you'll appreciate a mattress with a bit of give that cushions your neck and shoulders. I recommend the Saatva Classic Mattress for a good balance of comfort and support. Front sleepers should opt for a firmer surface to keep from sinking in. Something like the Nectar Memory Foam Mattress would work well. Back sleepers should consider a slightly softer surface that bears their weight to maintain the natural alignment of their spine, such as the Casper Wave Hybrid Snow Mattress

Why are mattresses always on sale?

Not all mattresses, all the time, but I take your point: most of the major sleep stores run sales events throughout the year. Many of these mattresses were discounted for Prime Day and Labor Day, too. With that said, you should see the best deals on mattresses around Black Friday. Even if it's a minor discount, around 5-10%, you could still save a few hundred dollars on the best mattress that meets your sleep needs.
