2020 Black Friday Mattress Deals: Four Tips for Successful Holiday Mattress Shopping

Updated November 27, 2020

If you want to really save big on Black Friday deals, you don’t have to go anywhere as long as you have a solid strategy. As Black Friday 2020 approaches, it’s good to invest in a little preparation to ensure you’re adequately prepared to stretch your dollar on the right products. Planning and researching the best products and deals before the insane sales start can mean snatching everything from your wish list without actually having to leave the comfort of your home. This year, Black Friday deals on sleep accessories are fantastic- there are tons of high-quality popular products with their prices being significantly slashed down. 

As we all have learned this year, it’s safer to stay home and that’s what makes Black Friday deals even better. Some of our favorite mattress brands are really upping the ante on getting the best deals out for us, and we’re here to help you find them all with ease. It’s important to note that prices will definitely be discounted as many retailers are working overtime to ensure they move stock. That just means that you’re in for even better deals than ever before.

Which is great timing since more of us may be having trouble sleeping well at night. If this was the year that you constantly woke up with lower back or neck pain or had a hard time falling and staying asleep, we understand. And so do retailers who are creating Black Friday deals that won’t have you breaking the bank just to get some quality rest on a premium mattress.

The best news is that no one really wants anyone going out and clamoring around brick and mortar stores to find these deals, so you can find the best brands online with a few buttons. Even better, retailers expecting Black Friday sales to be different this year are even offering sales prices just a hair earlier than usual, and that’s good news for you once you’ve done your research and decided which mattress was made for you.

To make sure your money-saving Black Friday deal on mattresses and other sleep accessories turns out to be a perfect choice, we’ve prepared a comprehensive guide on shopping for sleep accessories during sales. So, without further ado, let’s break down the 2020 Black Friday mattress sales for 2020 and learn invaluable mattress gift-buying tips that’ll ensure you get it right.

Savings In-Store and Online

You don’t have to wait until Cyber Monday to buy your online mattress. That’s what many people overlook- while Black Friday is not a primarily online sales day like Cyber Monday is, it doesn’t mean that sellers won’t be offering dramatic discounts online, as well. While you can certainly still drive to a retailer, buy a mattress under the pressure of pushy salesmen, and haul it back to your house, the convenience of a mattress delivered to your door is certainly enticing. And companies know it- that’s why they’re making it easier for you to make the purchase (and still save money).

— Bed-In-a-Box Makes Gifting a Breeze

Buying a mattress as a gift is easier than ever. It would be pretty obvious if you wrapped up a queen-size mattress, and getting it under the tree would be no easy task. Not to mention, it would take up an incredible amount of space.

If you’ve never ordered one before, a bed-in-a-box is much more condensed than you may think. In a box that’s typically around five feet tall and a couple feet wide, you leave a degree of mystery as to what could be inside. Schrödinger’s bed, if you please!

 

Don’t Forget to Accessorize

We can get so caught up picking out the right mattress that we forget to consider accessories that make all the difference once your mattress arrives. For starters, make sure you have a base that’s capable of supporting your mattress. For example, if you’re waiting with your adjustable base, keep in mind many mattresses can’t be used on them. Other considerations that will make things easier when your mattress arrives include:

    Toppers and pads

    Protectors

    Bedding

    Pillows

If shopping for someone else, a great way to ensure the recipient is ready to receive your gift is to seek out the help of others. Nobody likes to guess what to buy someone, and you can make this easier for everyone. Get other family member or friends involved through the purchase of supplementary items. Also, this is a perfect opportunity to add a thoughtful touch to your gift of mattress by accessorizing it with bedding you know the recipient would like, or by completing the gift with a high-quality pillow to match it- for guaranteed sweet dreams. 

 

How to Go Big Black Friday 2020 with the Right Mattress

We all have our own goals when Black Friday rolls around. Some make it a time to get a head start on gift buying. Others just enjoy the excitement of the rush that makes up this eventful day. And everyone enjoys getting to save a lot of money while still scoring the items that they’ve had their eye on throughout the year. Whatever your reason, there are two primary categories most shoppers fall into:

    Seeking out small deals on items they often don’t even need

    Seeking out that one significant purchase on something they really do need

A mattress is not an inexpensive item, especially when you buy one of good quality. That’s what makes buying on Black Friday 2020 such a good investment. You can save hundreds of dollars in a single transaction. Of course, same as it is the case with smaller items, it can be easy to get swept up and overlook important factors before buying. To best ensure you arrive at the most cost effective and efficient mattress for your unique needs, there are a few pointers to follow.

 

#1 Take a Look at Your Bank Balance

    Determine the absolute maximum amount you’re able to spend.

    As you shop, look at the durability expectations. Things like high coil counts in innersprings and high densities in foams help ensure longevity. In our complete mattress reviews, we include durability expectations to make this a little easier for you.

• What Indicates Good Durability

Unless you’re able to spend at least $500 on a queen mattress, you often don’t get the best expectation of the mattress lasting. The less you pay, the more likely you are of running into issues like sagging. However, you don’t always have the money to invest in something offering more.

This is okay! Just understand that you’ll need to replace the mattress more quickly. This can be a good time to save up for when this happens. Whatever your budget, it’s important to have an idea of what to expect in terms of durability. There are many things to look for to get an idea:

    Actual customer feedback

    Densities in foam layers

    Edge support reinforcements

    Special fabrics in the cover

Also keep in mind when shopping retail… you’re paying for overhead expenses to keep the bills paid. Much of this is eliminated in the online business model. This is why sometimes online deals on mattresses sound good to be true, as high-quality durable mattresses can cost much less online than directly at the store. Therefore, you can often get a better deal on a mattress of equal quality when you buy online.

 

#2 Understand Sleep Needs

You should never judge a book by its cover, and the same goes for mattresses. OK, so you liked the design or some of the features sound enticing, but even if it’s a good mattress, it doesn’t necessarily have to mean that it will be good for you specifically. This is the issue when you buy it for someone else- you’ll have to have some idea about their sleeping habits and preferences to make sure you really get them a gift they’ll use and cherish. 

As you make your Black Friday mattress sales plan, there are some key areas you’ll want to analyze to determine what you’re looking for in the right mattress:

    Firmness

  • Plush
  • Medium
    • Good for most people, but specifically for those with a BMI between 19 and 25
    • Works well with all three primary sleep positions
    • Good for sleep partners with varied difference as a compromise
  • Firm
    • Good for people with a BMI between 26-31
    • Works well with stomach sleeping

    Heat Retention

  • Helps you enter REM sleep when mattress is able to breathe
  • Features to look for include the use of gel and convoluted foams, use of innerspring units, and copper infusion

    Motion Transfer

  • Sleep partners should pay close attention as lack in motion isolation can make it very difficult to fall and/or stay asleep

    Edge Support

  • Especially important for people with mobility issues and for intimacy. One of our biggest goals in our complete mattress reviews is to help you understands how products perform in the areas listed above and much more. I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the information provided on our website before you buy.

 

#3 Know Your Options

There’s certainly no shortage when it comes to quality mattresses on the market. There are far too many great deals out there to make quick decisions. When you find a product that’ll stand the test of time, it can last as long as a decade when you take care of it. Make sure you find the right one!

Set aside dedicated time to prepare your Black Friday mattress sales execution plan. Just a few things to do include;

Z

Answer the following questions based on the guide in section 2:

  • What firmness is most suitable for the person who will be using this mattress?
  • How important is breathability? Would I be willing to compromise if other areas like plushness are increased?
  • Will there be a sleep partner? If so, am I willing to make any compromises when it comes to motion isolation?
  • How important is edge support in my specific situation?

These answers will help you narrow down options. For example, if you need a plush mattress and are willing to compromise on heat transfer capability for a more traditional memory foam feel, this eliminates a large number of products on the market.

Further narrow down your list by removing any products outside

Once you have a list of your top 5 Black Friday mattress deals, spend as much time as possible taking advantage of thorough reviews

Ensure the sleep trial and warranty of the one you decide on is reasonable for the price. For products over $500, this should include at least a 100 night sleep trial and 10 year limited warranty.

 

#4 Research Warranties/Trial Periods/Perks

Research the warranties offered by the retailers and at what cost, if any, and see if they offer a trial period for a selected number of days. If the mattress you have your eye on is only available under a final sale for Black Friday, you should be 100% sure it will suit all the needs of the individual(s). Will the company waive the delivery fee (if applicable) or will your mattress be replaced at no cost to you if required? If repair or replacement is needed or once the trial period is over and unsuccessful, will the consumer be responsible for the return of the mattress?

Confirm to see if the retailer will deliver or arrange for the consumer to pick up the mattress the same day in store. Check to see if they offer to arrange third-party delivery or pick-up via a trusted shipping company.

 

Final Black Friday Tips

The holidays are hectic, but a little planning can go a long way. You spend a third of your life sleeping, so it only makes sense you’d invest time and effort into getting a mattress built to meet your needs. If you can save some money in the process, that’s great, making Black Friday and Cyber Monday great times to buy.

The worst thing you can do is wait until the last minute. There are hundreds of deals coming up, but you can only choose one. By following these three tips, you can be on your way to a purchase that’ll make a positive and long-lasting difference in the life of the recipient.
