Top Black Friday Mattress Sales to Shop

Best Overall: Solaire Adjustable

Saatva is offering an additional $270 off during Cyber Week exclusively for Real Simple readers.

The Solaire Adjustable earns the title "best overall," thanks to 50 adjustable firmness levels designed to match many different sleep preferences. Layers of zoned support mean this mattress delivers solid pressure relief (it earned an 8 out of 10 during testing). Plus, it's constructed from responsive, breathable latex and a layer of gel memory foam, earning it an 8.75 out of 10 in cooling.

Although this is a luxury mattress with a high-end price to match, you can save $270 on the Solaire Adjustable this Black Friday. That's on top of other premium perks, such as complimentary white glove mattress removal, delivery, and assembly.

  • Mattress Type: Adjustable air bed

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 8.7/10

  • Firmness: 50 customizable firmness levels

  • Trial Period for Returns: 180 nights

Best Luxury: Helix Midnight Luxe

While the Helix Midnight Luxe is definitely considered a luxury mattress, it can be yours at a more affordable price point this Black Friday, with $200 off.

An ultra-crisp, cooling pillow top layer promotes airflow and wicks moisture away from the body, earning this mattress an impressive 9.5 out of 10 in cooling. It also delivers decent pressure relief (8.5/10), which is especially important for side sleepers. One important caveat about this mattress: It only earned a 7.5 out of 10 in motion isolation, meaning movement on one side of the bed will likely be felt on the other. In other words, couples and people who sleep with pets should look elsewhere.

  • Mattress Type: Hybrid (foam and coils)

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 8.9/10

  • Firmness: Medium-firm (6/10)

  • Trial Period for Returns: 100 nights

Best for Side Sleepers: Nectar

Side sleepers concentrate all their weight onto their hips and shoulders, so they need a mattress that relieves pressure in these areas. The Nectar is a highly responsive memory foam mattress that earned excellent results in the Mattress Advisor pressure relief test. Its soft yet supportive layers also keep sleepers' spines aligned throughout the night. In addition to slashing the price, Nectar's Black Friday deal throws in $399 worth of accessories with your mattress purchase, including two pillows, sheets, and a mattress protector.

  • Mattress Type: Gel memory foam

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 8.7/10

  • Firmness: Medium-firm (6.5/10)

  • Trial Period for Returns: 365 nights

Best Value: The WinkBed

The experts at Mattress Advisor dub The WinkBed as the "best value" bed because it boasts luxury features at an affordable price point. You can choose your preferred softness from four distinct firmness levels, ranging from soft to ultra-firm. That level of customization is commonly only found in much higher-end models. Plus, this high-quality hybrid mattress (Mattress Advisor awarded it a 10 out of 10 in durability) is constructed from pocketed coils and supportive memory foam, which one tester called "the perfect medium between soft and supportive."

  • Mattress Type: Hybrid (foam and coils)

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 8.6/10

  • Firmness: Medium-soft (4.5/10), luxury-firm (6.5/10), firm (7.5/10), and plus (8/10)

  • Trial Period for Returns: 120 nights

Best Cooling: GhostBed Classic

There's a lot to love about the GhostBed, including solid edge support (8.5/10) and spinal alignment (7.5/10). But it especially shines as a cooling mattress. Though it only scored an 8.5 out of 10, testers report the inclusion of gel still makes the GhostBed one of the best cooling memory foam mattresses on the market today. Additional layers of memory foam create acceptable pressure relief (6.5/10) and spine alignment (7.5/10), though sleepers who commonly wake up with aches and pains may want to shop for an option that scored higher, such as the Puffy Lux.

The already affordable GhostBed has an even cooler price this Black Friday, with 30 percent off.

  • Mattress Type: Memory foam

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 8.6/10

  • Firmness: Medium-firm (6.5/10)

  • Trial Period for Returns: 101 nights

Best for Couples: DreamCloud

Couples who cohabitate will enjoy the DreamCloud, a hybrid bed that adapts to your movements as you shift. Earning an 8.25 out of 10 in motion transfer, this foam-and-coil mattress helps reduce the feeling of movement from one partner tossing and turning. Plus, with a 365-day sleep trial and a lifetime warranty, this luxury hybrid is a purchase decision that you can easily undo if it's not the best fit (unlike that kitchen tile choice you regret).

One note though: If you or your partner tend to sleep light, consider the DreamCloud Premier, which Mattress Advisor testers deemed superior in motion isolation. Save $200 on either DreamCloud mattress for Black Friday.

  • Mattress Type: Hybrid (foam and coils)

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 9.1/10

  • Firmness: Medium-firm (6.5/10)

  • Trial Period for Returns: 365 nights

  • Mattress Type: Hybrid (latex and coils)

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 9/10

The highly durable Puffy Lux should last you for years, and for added peace of mind, you get a lifetime warranty. For Black Friday, the brand is knocking off $300, putting the premium-priced Puffy Lux more in reach.

Best for Combination Sleepers: PlushBeds Botanical Bliss

It can be tricky for combination sleepers, or sleepers that change positions throughout the night, to find their perfect bed. That's where the Botanical Bliss comes in. Boasting two initial firmness options (medium and medium-firm), this latex mattress has enough range to sleep comfortably, no matter what position you end up in.

Not happy with the firmness level you originally selected? The brand will send a replacement layer tailored to your preferred firmness, free of charge, when requested within the 100-night trial period. And because latex is naturally breathable, the Botanical Bliss wicks away moisture for a refreshing night's sleep that keeps you blissfully dry. Score this mattress for 25 percent off during Black Friday sales.

  • Mattress Type: Latex

  • Mattress Advisor Score: 8.1/10

  • Firmness: Customizable
