The best mattress sales and deals in October 2022

(Image credit: Saatva)

This guide is dedicated to bringing you the best mattress sales and deals around. Discounts are common in this market – so much so that it can be tricky to figure out what's a good deal and what isn't. We monitor prices at all times and keep this guide regularly updated with the top discounts and the best places to save in the US and the UK. 

In the US, we tend to see MSRP prices going up over the summer, so this is a good chance to score a lower price if you're in need of a sleep upgrade. You'll be able to pick up a discount on various models at different price points, but if you're not sure what you're looking for, your first stop should be our dedicated best mattresses guide, which explains what'll suit your sleep style and preferences. 

In the US right now, some of the best mattress sales are at Saatva, where our exclusive discount gets you $375 off any order over $1,000 (opens in new tab) (our pick is the Saatva Classic, a luxurious feeling hybrid that's already cheaper than comparable models), and Helix, where there's up to $400 off  the full range (opens in new tab), with free pillows thrown in too. 

The are plenty of great mattress sales happening in the UK too, including 40% off cooling hybrids at Simba (opens in new tab), with the popular Simba Hybrid Pro in a double size reduced to £881.37 (was £1,399). The best offer for people searching for a mattress for back pain relief is 46% off the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid (opens in new tab). Let's take a look at the rest of this month's best mattress sales...

Mattress sales tips: when and how to shop them

You should rarely have to pay the full price for a mattress because new sales are running all the time. To ensure you get the best possible deal, check the original price of the mattress on the manufacturer's website, and search for any discount codes that can be applied to bring the price down further. 

While doing so, look out for any other incentives that are being offered – for example, some manufacturers give away bedding bundles as part of the deal. This could include their best mattress protector for safeguarding your bed from stains and spills, as well as the best pillows for comfier sleep.

Of course, even at a discounted price, mattresses are a sizeable investment so it's important that you're entirely satisfied. With this in mind, be sure to buy one from a mattress manufacturer or retailer that offers a risk-free trial period, along with a clear and fair returns policy.

You can normally find offers on the best mattress toppers during monthly mattress sales too, and these are great if you need a comfort boost for an older bed but can't stretch to a new mattress just yet.

The best mattress sales normally land at the end of November when the Black Friday mattress deals start rolling in, as manufacturers drop their prices and serve up big discounts. These sales then roll over into the first Monday directly after Black Friday, when we see all the Cyber Monday mattress deals arrive. 

Beyond those two key times, the Memorial Day mattress sales are a good chance to grab a top-rated memory foam, hybrid or innerspring mattress for less – and especially before prices start to increase through the summer period, before they start to fall again in September.
