This year, the main event began on Friday 26 November – the day after Thanksgiving in the USA – and will officially end on Cyber Monday on 29 November. So you might want to get your skates on this weekend, as it’s the prime time to snap up the best deals.
Follow live: The best Black Friday deals still available now
While you might be tempted to treat yourself to some new wardrobe additions or toys for the kids’ stockings, it’s also a good time to bag those big-ticket items that would normally be a huge investment. Hence why Black Friday mattress deals are so highly sought after. You can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep after all... but it would be great to save hundreds of pounds.
Our IndyBest team has been scouring the internet for the best prices, and this is probably one of the best discounts we’ve found – a double Dormeo octasmart plus memory foam mattress (was £799 for a double, now £399, Dormeo.co.uk) is now available for a price that will certainly help you sleep more peacefully.
Dormeo octasmart plus memory foam mattress: Was £799 for a double, now £399, Dormeo.co.uk
Octasmart mattresses are hybrids featuring both foam and springs, which the brand claims is best for your sleep. This plus model is comprised of a base to protect against mould and dust mites, a layer of springs to support your back and shoulders, and layers of memory foam to adapt to the contours of your body. The second layer from the top absorbs moisture via special “eco cell” foam, making it ideal for hot summers, or if you’re prone to hot flushes or night sweats.
This model also has special cooling technology in the form of an “octavent air system” that Dormeo claims makes its mattresses eight times more breathable, while cooling your bed temperature by up to three degrees. Our tester was impressed with this feature when they slept on it during a heatwave.
They went on to say: “Unlike some memory foam-based products, Dormeo’s mattress didn’t have that ‘sinking feeling’ and we felt adequately supported at night. We certainly felt the difference sleeping on a hybrid compared to our old spring mattress, which never did much for our neck or back. After two weeks of sleeping on Dormeo’s, our pressure points did seem slightly improved and we’re sure this would only become more pronounced over time.”
They also commented how useful it was when sharing a bed with another person: “The level of disturbance when the other moved was considerably reduced, owing to the mattress being designed with three ‘body zones’ that help evenly distribute your weight. This also benefits you when sleeping alone if you’re fidgety, allowing you to doze in a range of positions without ever feeling uncomfortable or waking yourself up.”
Given the fantastic saving of 50 per cent, don’t sleep on it when it comes to grabbing this bargain.
