The Best Black Friday Mattress Deals

Among all the Black Friday deals to be had, mattress deals are always some of the best. Most brands and retailers drop prices by at least $100, making some of the newer, already affordable mattresses even more approachable. Our advice: do some research and check out our favorite mattresses, all of which were recently tested by the Strategist team. Then bookmark this page and follow along in the days leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which, if prior years are any indication, will be filled with excellent sales. Note that the starting prices we list for mattresses are for full-size ones, and that further down we have mattress pads, as well.

In the meantime, we have a lot of other pre-holiday coverage, in which we’ve already reported on the best things to buy before they sell out, including the best tech gifts to buy before Black Friday, the best men’s gifts to buy before Black Friday, and the best kids’ toys to buy before Black Friday. Keep your eyes peeled for more promotions and Black Friday deals coverage as we continue to update this page, and follow us on Twitter for more timely sales coverage. The holidays are almost underway — we’re here to help.

Leesa’s deal comes with a free pillow (a $75 value) but runs early: this sale ends at the end of the day on Black Friday.


iComfort by Blue Fusion 1000

Macy’s, a longtime purveyor of mattresses, still carries them and has dropped prices by a big margin for Black Friday. There are so many that we filtered our search according to models with five-star reviews, and this Serta luxury hybrid, which is a lofty 14.5 inches tall, has the most of them.
