Black Friday mattress deals 2020: Your guide

Black Friday is an amazing time to pick up a cheap mattress, with pretty much all the big brands and retailers getting involved to offer some kind of price drop, freebie, or discount code. So what can we predict about this year's sales?

Well, first up, the big day this year is 27 November (with Cyber Monday following on 30 November), but we're confident there will be plenty of Black Friday mattress deals going live before that date. Over the past few years, we've been seeing deals across a range of industries going live earlier and earlier, and we'd expect the same thing to happen in 2020. 

If we look back over the past few events, we've typically seen brands offering bigger and better Black Friday mattress deals each year. Here are three brands to keep an eye on this year:

Emma mattress
Emma's 2019 Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress deal chopped a phenomenal 40% off the price of everything sitewide. T3 also ran an exclusive discount that bumped up savings to 41% off. Again, it was a big improvement on the 2018 Black Friday deal (up to 30% off) – so hopefully we'll see more than 40% off this year. Although bear in mind that the award-winning Emma mattress got a permanent price drop this year too.

Nectar Sleep
For Black Friday 2019, UK shoppers could get a £250 discount on their mattress purchase, with two free pillows (worth £70) thrown in. We've seen this deal since, in summer 2020, which suggests we might be in store for a better deal come the end of November.

You'd be hard pushed to find a better cheap mattress than Silentnight's Pocket Essentials 1000. It's already great value at its RRP, and there are often incredible deals to be found on Amazon, too (check out the widget above for the best price right now). The Pocket Essentials 1000 is a pocket sprung mattress, which means that each of its 1,000 springs is able to pivot within its own pocket, giving you individual tailored support and preventing motion transference so that you won't disturb your partner if you toss and turn in the night. This mattress comes with a soft knit cover that provides a sumptuous sleep surface and which is also hypoallergenic, and unlike other sprung mattresses there's no need to turn it; simply rotate it 180 degrees every six weeks or so for even settlement.

Rated as medium/firm it's a safe bet whatever your sleeping preference, and if you look around you'll find hundreds of satisfied reviews. The Silentnight Pocket Essentials 1000 is handmade in the UK, and if you buy from Silentnight you'll get a 60-night trial.

You might hesitate to buy a memory foam mattress that's as cheap as this, but a Which? Best Buy award and a stack of positive reviews online say that the Silentnight 3 Zone Memory Foam Mattress is a bargain worth grabbing. It features a 3cm layer of responsive, body-moulding memory foam, giving your entire body pressure-relieving comfort and support, with softer support for your shoulders and firmer support for your lower back and hips. It's not as thick as Silentnight's Pocket Essentials 1000, but it's still a perfectly comfortable mattress that's designed to reduce motion transfer.

It's Purotex-treated to reduce moisture and allergens, and like most foam mattresses it comes vacuum-packed. You might notice an odd smell when you unwrap it, but that's just the fresh foam, and the smell will dissipate after a few days. In all this is one of the best budget memory foam mattresses that you can buy, and there are some great additional discounts to be found right now.

Turn: No
Filling: Foam/springs
Comfort: Medium-firm
Guarantee: 5 years
RRP: Single: £174.99, Double: £199.99, King: £234.99
Reasons to buy
Reasons to avoid
-Possibly too soft for some

If you're after a hybrid mattress that combines the best qualities of foam and springs and won't cost you a fortune, there are some incredible savings to be made on this fantastic option from Happy Beds right now. The Deluxe Memory mattress uses 10mm of reflex foam and 20mm of memory foam on top of a coil spring system to provide plenty of support and comfort, with more traditional bounce than you'll find in a foam-only mattress. It's a UK-made mattress that uses sanitised materials to provide hypoallergenic and anti-dust mite properties, making it an excellent choice for allergy and asthma sufferers, while its all-around support make it a good orthopaedic option for anyone with back or joint problems.

It's another mattress that only needs to be rotated every six weeks rather than turned, and while those RRPs look fairly enticing, again there are often deals to be had that take the price even lower. 

Cheap mattress deals: Ikea Morgedal

4. Ikea Morgedal

An award-winning budget foam mattress at a great price

Sizes: Single - king
Depth: 18cm
Turn: Yes
Filling: memory foam
Comfort: medium
Trial: 90 nights
Guarantee: 25 years
RRP: Single: £125, Double: £165, King: £195
Reasons to buy
+Won awards+Comfortable
Reasons to avoid
-No bells and whistles

There's nothing particularly special about IKEA's Morgedal mattress. It's a straightforward and resilient budget mattress that's more or less a thick chunk of foam in a polyester cover, and while it has comfort zones that provide pressure relief and support where you need it, that's about the extent of its features. Don't let that put you off, though, because this is a brilliant budget option that's won a Which? Best Buy award, and while you can get cheaper mattresses from IKEA, this is the one that's likely to give you the best night's sleep, and there's a 90-day trial period so that you can make sure it's right for you.

RRP: Single: £344.99, Double: £514.99, King: £559.99
Reasons to buy
+Great value+Individually nested pocket springs+Supportive and comfortable

For an even more deluxe option from Happy Beds, check out its Balmoral Pocket Sprung Memory Foam Mattress. While nobody's actually claiming that these might be found on the beds at Balmoral, there's definitely a level of regal comfort on offer here that you'll want to take advantage of.

Boasting exceptional materials and an innovative design, the Balmoral is 25cm thick and features 30mm of memory foam that contours to your body, retains heat and provides spine and joint support, plus a layer of reflex foam to keep the mattress feeling firm and sturdy. And beneath that there's a layer of individually nested pocket springs that provide an undisturbed sleeping surface and isolate restless movement. Air vents help the mattress breathe and will keep it fresh for years, and you'll only need to rotate it every six weeks rather than turn it. Now, we know those RRPs look a little steep for a budget mattress, but as with the other Happy Beds mattress listed here, there are regularly stunning bargains to be had.

Cheap mattress deals: Dormeo Memory Silver Plus Rolled Mattress

(Image credit: Happy Beds)

6. Dormeo Memory Silver Plus Rolled Mattress

A great low-budget memory foam mattress with a 60-night trial

Sizes: Single - super king
Depth: 17cm
Turn: No
Filling: Memory foam
Comfort: Medium
Trial: 60 nights
Guarantee: 15 years
RRP: Single: £649.99, Double: £749.99, King: £899.99
Reasons to buy
+Enriched with silver thread +60-night trial+15 year guarantee
Reasons to avoid
-Beware paying full price

Don't let those RRPs frighten you; they look intimidating but you'd have to be extremely unlucky to ever have to pay anything even approaching full price for a Dormeo mattress. Regular deals mean you can often pick the Dormeo's Memory Silver Plus mattress up for an absolute snip, especially for a mattress that's literally covered in silver. Not completely, obviously, but the mattress's luxury cover is, says Dormeo, enriched with silver fibres that help eliminate bad mattress smells with their anti-bacterial and anti-odour properties as well as acting as an anti-static shield that can protect the mattress from allergy-provoking dust particles.

Beneath the silvery cover is 3cm of memory foam that's sewn directly into the cover to help prevent restless tossing and turning, and there's 14cm of breathable Ecocell foam underneath it to provide plenty of support. Dormeo offers a 60 night trial so you can find out for yourself whether all these features add up to a comfortable night's sleep, and the 15-year guarantee is a tough one to beat.
