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 attainable. Our advice: Do some research and check out our favorite mattresses, all of which were 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 we’ve listed the sales in alphabetical order by brand. And the prices we list are for queen-size mattresses for ease of comparison.)
If you’ve been flirting with the idea of a mattress or mattress topper upgrade, now is the best time of the year do it. And if the prices aren’t sweet enough, many of the below promotions will also get you a free pillow or set of sheets. Keep your eyes peeled for more Black Friday deals as we continue to update this page, and follow us on Twitter for more timely sales coverage. The holidays are almost under way — we’re here to help.
Aviya is offering $200 off their mattress with code STRATBF through November 30. When writer Lori Keong tested this mattress a while back, she said, “Sleeping on this changed my perception of what soft-but-supportive means.” The Aviya sandwiches inner springs between three layers of high-density foam. It’s a great choice for people who don’t have time to do tons of research but know they’d like a bed with inner springs rather than foam all the way down.
Avocado was rated our best eco-conscious mattress, which means you’re paying for coziness and peace of mind. And now through December 9, Avocado is offering a bunch of great deals, including $200 off any mattress, $150 off a bed frame when you buy a mattress with code STRATBED, $50 off mattress pad protectors with code PROTECT50, $50 off mattress toppers with code TOP50, and 20 percent off any pillow with code STRATPILLOWS.
Now through December 9, Bear, whose mattress we named the best for serious athletes, is offering 25 percent off across the site with code STRAT25. Bear is also throwing in two of its Cloud pillows free with every mattress purchase.
Birch by Helix
Through December 1, Birch by Helix is taking $200 off any mattress with code BF200.
Casper is taking 15 percent off all of their mattresses for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Their OG mattress is touted as the perfect combination of soft and firm, thanks to its zoned support which ensures proper spinal alignment pretty much no matter how you sleep.
Cocoon by Sealy
If you’ve got a chronically achy back, like former Strategist editor Simone Kitchens, Cocoon by Sealy could help relieve your pain. Kitchens tested the firmer of its two mattresses and called the Cocoon “supportive enough to help alleviate some chronic back pain.” Through December 1, you’ll get 25 percent off its Chill Bundle, which includes a mattress, free DreamFit sheet set, and DreamFit pillows.
Eight Sleep is celebrating Black Friday with $300 off its fully customizable Pod mattress, a free exclusive Gravity blanket, and free shipping.
If you prefer a soft mattress but your partner likes one that’s firm, Helix has a mattress for you — along with eight other options, depending on your sleep needs. The Moonlight Luxe has a soft feel that’s backed by supportive dynamic foam, and a hybrid design and breathable cover mean you’ll sweat less throughout the night. But from now until December 1, Helix is offering $100 off when you spend $600 or more on any mattress, $150 off when you spend $1,250 or more, and $200 off when you spend $1,750 or more. All sale mattresses come with two free pillows.
Through December 9, Layla is offering $150 off any size mattress, plus two free pillows and a free mattress protector. Layla mattresses are flippable and feature different firmnesses on either side, so it’s like getting two beds in one. That and its not-too-expensive price tag make it a great choice for any guest bedroom.
We named Leesa’s original foam mattress one of our best all-around mattresses because it suits most people’s sleep needs. Now through December 6, you’ll get up to $350 off Leesa’s Original, Hybrid, or Legend mattresses, plus two free down-alternative pillows with your purchase.
Lucid’s memory-foam mattress has over 1,000 five-star ratings from enthusiastic Amazon reviewers. It’s currently 22 percent off, which is the lowest it’s been priced for over a year.
The Marpac Yogabed features a zip-off washable cover over layers of responsive foam designed to relieve pressure points and minimize motion transfer between couples — and while other mattress brands let you test a bed for 100 days, Marpac will let you try one out for 101. And because the YogaBed is affordable to begin with, it’s really affordable now that Marpac is offering 20 percent off everything through December 12. Namaste.
For its Black Friday sale, Molecule is offering 25 percent off sitewide. Plus you’ll get a free set of sheets with your purchase of any mattress.
If you’re looking for a foam mattress that’s both highly rated and affordable, Nectar is a good choice. Composed of two layers of gel memory foam that keep you cool while you snooze, it offers a perfect balance of softness and support. It’s also one of the highest-rated mattresses on all of Amazon, and from now until December 2, you can take $125 off with code STRATEGIST.
