The yearly shopping bonanza that is Black Friday is nearly with us, and for the uninitiated, that means deals whizzing around left, right and centre.
From November 27 until 30, retailers will be racing to offer unbelievable discounts on everything from TVs to the latest tech, fashion to food and everything else imaginable inbetween.
The shopping holiday is a US import, where huge sales take place across the country the day after Thanksgiving. In recent years, it’s gained huge popularity here with British shoppers eager to get a headstart on their Christmas shopping.
The Black Friday sales are also the optimum time to snap up those big ticket items that could do with replacing - think fridge freezers, washing machines and mattresses.
Arguably the most important piece of furniture you’ll ever own, a high quality mattress is better for your health, mood, focus and, in these strange times let’s face it, probably where you’ll spend the majority of your winter lockdown.
With so many retailers keen to get in on the Black Friday sales bandwagon, it can be very tricky to sort the genuinely good deals from showy token offers.
Luckily here at ES Best, we’ve done the undercover work and sussed the best deals for you. From beds-in-a-box to medium tension pocket springs and everything inbetween, you can rest assured that you’ll find the best mattress deals in our roundup below.
Why not complement your new bed with a fresh mattress topper - which can increase the longevity of your matttress - as well as a new high tog winter duvet, pillows and bedsheets? When you consider the fact that on average, we’ll spend a third of our lives in bed, we may as well make it the most comfortable place that it can be.
We’ll be adding fresh deals into this piece as they come up, so bookmark ES Best, and check back often.
