The best 2022 Black Friday mattress deals from Simba, Emma and Dormeo (some up to 50 percent off)



What is Black Friday?

In America, it’s the day after Thanksgiving, which falls on the fourth Thursday in November. People take Fridays off to start their Christmas shopping, and stores have been offering discounts to entice them for decades. The name is pejorative, like ‘Black Wednesday’, and is said to have been coined in the 1960s by police who were not looking forward to the annual influx of shoppers onto their bustling streets.

Online retailers set themselves apart for a while by announcing their deals three days later on Cyber ​​Monday. The two events have since been merged into one.

Is Black Friday the best time to buy a mattress?

Yes. You can usually find a deal for around 20 or 30 percent all year round, but for Black Friday big names like Simba, Emma and Nectar are offering around 50 percent off their RRP.

What was in last year’s Black Friday mattress sale?

Last year’s mattress deals are a good indication of what to expect this year. Notable deals included Emma’s double original mattress discounted from £699 to £384.45 (currently £379.50 at Emma), and Simba’s king-size Hybrid Luxe reduced from £2,299 to £1,049.95 (currently £1,264.45 at Simba ). Eve Sleep also reduced the price of its double original mattress from £699 to £488 (currently £649 on Eve). At the more affordable end of the scale, Dormeo’s hybrid memory foam and pocket sprung mattress was discounted from £229.99 to £171.99 (currently £249 on Amazon).

What should you pay attention to when buying a mattress

As we found out when we reviewed the best mattresses for back pain, you need to choose a mattress that is not only comfortable, but also supports your head, shoulders and hips and keeps your spine aligned. Heavier people generally need firmer support, while lighter people can sleep on softer mattresses. But your choice is also determined by whether you are a side sleeper, back sleeper or front sleeper.

Traditional pocket sprung mattresses offer excellent weight distribution and good support, but there have been major advances in memory foam and hybrid (memory foam with springs) mattresses and these are often the mattresses people are looking for on Black Friday – as they can be delivered to house in a relatively small box.

It’s always a good idea to try a mattress in store before you buy it (the same goes for sleeper sofas), so now might be a good time to head to your nearest bedding store. The good news is that mattress-in-a-box specialists like Simba and Emma offer very long trial periods of up to a year, so you can return your mattress if you’re not satisfied.
