A mattress is an important purchase. After all, you spend roughly eight hours a night sleeping on it, so it's worth getting a good one. If you want to score a bargain, now is the time to be on the lookout for Black Friday mattress deals.
Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping events of the year, with deals going all weekend, through to Cyber Monday.

Amazon mattress deals
Amazon is well-known for its impressive Black Friday sales, so it's a great place to look for a mattress. It has a wide selection of innerspring mattresses, memory foam mattresses and more.
As a hybrid mattress, this offers the best of innerspring mattresses and foam mattresses. The base layer is made from coils for spring and support. The top layers are made from comfortable memory foam and breathable latex foam for a plush feeling without too much heat.
This hybrid mattress combines a coil base with upper foam layers to bring you a medium-firm mattress that offers ample support while still feeling comfortable. It has a layer of cooling gel foam, which is great for people who tend to sleep hot.

Anyone looking for a memory foam mattress at a bargain price should consider this one. It's 8 inches deep with 6 inches of supportive base foam and 2 inches of plush-feeling memory foam to contour to the body and relieve pressure points.
As a hybrid mattress, the Behost contains a support layer of coils — like in an innerspring mattress — with upper foam layers. It gives you the pressure relief you might expect from a memory foam mattress, with the bounce and support of an innerspring. It contains gel-infused beads to help regulate body temperature while you sleep.

Best Buy mattress deals
Best Buy might be known for its electronics, but it also sells mattresses. The selection might not be as large as some retailers, but you can still grab a bargain on Black Friday and the period leading up to it.
The firm feel of this mattress makes it a good choice for back sleepers and stomach sleepers. It's made from two layers of foam that adapt to the body and help relieve pressure points. The open-cell foam is breathable, so it's a good choice for people who sleep hot.
This hybrid is great for anyone who likes the pressure relief and signature feeling of memory foam but doesn't like to feel like they're sinking in. The firm support from coils puts an end to that sinking feeling, but you still get the benefits of a foam layer. Since the foam is gel-infused, it's also good for people who find standard memory foam too hot.

Wayfair mattress deals
If you're searching for Black Friday mattress deals, Wayfair should be on your list of retailers to consider. There are bargains to be had on a range of mattresses you might not find elsewhere, including Wayfair's own brand.
With hybrid construction and medium firmness, this is a versatile choice to suit a range of preferences and sleeping styles. The gel memory foam layer is not only comfortable and pressure-relieving, but it has cooling properties, so it's good for people who tend to feel too hot on regular foam mattresses.
You can get this high-end memory foam mattress with a hefty Black Friday discount. It offers medium support but feels super plush. Since it's gel-infused, it helps disperse heat at night, unlike standard memory foam. We like that it's compatible with adjustable beds.

Memory foam mattress deals
Memory foam mattresses offer a great balance of comfort and support, often with a plusher feeling than innerspring mattresses. They're great for anyone who suffers from aching joints from mattress pressure points.
We like the 14-inch depth of this mattress, as it looks high-end and feels like something you want to sink into at night, even if it might be a little deep for some fitted sheets. It's made using a copper gel aerofusion memory foam layer, which increases airflow and disperses heat, so it's great for hot sleepers. It's designed to regulate both moisture and odor.

As the name suggests, this kind of mattress comes rolled up neatly in a box. It saves on delivery costs without sacrificing quality, as foam is able to compress tightly but spring back to life when removed from its packaging.
Casper is one of the best-known mattress-in-a-box manufacturers. Most of its offerings are memory foam, but this one is a hybrid with comfortable memory foam and cooling gel foam on top of a supportive layer of springs. We tested it and found it comfortable and supportive, and it didn't make us feel too hot at night.
Thanks to both an airflow channel and the use of cooling gel foam, this memory foam mattress is a great choice for hot sleepers. It offers medium-firm support but is excellent at relieving pressure points, so it works well for all kinds of sleepers: front, side and stomach.

How often should you replace your mattress?
Generally speaking, you should replace your mattress once every seven to 10 years. However, if you notice your mattress sagging, becoming less supportive or poking you with springs even sooner than that, it's a sign you need an upgrade.
How to choose the best mattress for you
- Consider mattress types. Foam, innerspring and hybrid are the most common. You may already have a preference, but if not, it's a good idea to try some mattresses in person, even if you ultimately buy one online.
- Think about firmness. Mattress firmness ranges from extra-soft to extra-firm. Firmer mattresses are generally more supportive, but some people find them uncomfortable.
- Look at the size. If you already have a bed frame and aren't looking to replace it, then choosing a mattress size is easy. Otherwise, think about the dimensions of the room and whether the mattress will sleep one or two.
- Check out the trial period. Some mattress manufacturers offer trials of up to 100 nights to give you a good idea of whether you like the mattress before fully committing.
- Natural materials are an option. If you're looking for a mattress made from natural materials, consider a latex foam mattress.
