Sleep is essential but it is not always easy. Some people can sleep on a wooden plank, and some of us need the perfect mattress, the freshest sheets perfectly tucked in, and a nice sound machine crackling nearby. Luckily, there are Black Friday deals on all of these things. The prices included here for the mattresses are for the double version.
We test products all year round and carefully select these offers. Products that are out of stock or no longer discounted at the time of posting will be
crossed out. We will update this guide during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend.
When it comes to mattresses, the rule to follow is never to pay full price. No matter the time of year, there’s always a sale coming up. List prices are set artificially high so that the deals seem extravagant, but they’re not. We’ve handpicked the best deals below, but our guide to the best mattresses has more options and detailed explanations about the hybrid than the full foam.
This is our favorite mattress and it’s the one you should get if money is no object. This is the same price it was during the Memorial Day sale and $50 more than last Black Friday (base price increased). It lives up to its Luxe name and is soft and cushiony on top, but still has a medium-firm feel that’s good for all sleep positions. The amount of the discount depends on the size you choose. Click the View Offer button at the top of the website to see exactly how much and what code you’ll need to apply at checkout. Each mattress order comes with two pillows.
Don’t want to spend as much money as the Helix? Casper is a great all-around option if you’re not sure which mattress to buy. It’s what our reviewer called “as close to a default as beds come.” You’ll get soft support, better breathability, and edge support than an all-foam mattress.
This mattress is ideal if you need pressure relief for a better night’s sleep. You’ll sink into its top layer of adaptive foam, it feels supportive. There is a green ceramic gel foam to dissipate heat and it manages to hold its shape, so there won’t be a person-shaped outline the next night.
Does the thought of spending over a thousand dollars on a bed keep you up at night? Well, that’s a solid deal. The Nectar mattress is a good option for side sleepers. Its MSRP is $999 but we usually see it drop to $799, so this is indeed a royal discount. It’s an all-foam bed, not a hybrid, but it’s comfortable enough: it sinks in, but doesn’t swallow you. If you want to add two pillows, sheets, and a mattress topper, you’ll need to add the accessories on offer for $99.
Sound Machine Deals
You can find more recommendations in our Best Sound Machines guide.
Click the coupon button on the page to see the discount at checkout. If you want a sound machine and a dawn alarm clock (plus a digital clock!), Hatch hits the mark here. Using the app, you can schedule your basic morning and night routines and select your alarm and sleep sounds. It’s still expensive even with this discount. Hatch Sleep Membership gives you an ever-evolving library of sounds, stories, and meditations, but it’s not required.
Click the coupon button on the page to see the discount at checkout. This version of the hatch is intended for children, but anyone can use it. It has specific features for the child, namely the lights of the time of rest and time to get up. It’s good for early risers not to annoy parents on their only day of sleep, but it could also be good for adults who need to be reminded to put their phones down and take a second to go to sleep. Using the app, you can customize colors and cycle through sounds. The second generation version uses Wi-Fi instead of Bluetooth.
I really like Morphée products. They are made with care and without a screen. You can get a basic sound machine for less, but even that adds musings. You can go from the crackling sounds of the fireplace to meditative sessions designed to fall into a deep sleep. The downside is that you can only choose between playing for 8 or 20 minutes; I wish it played sounds continuously.
Take this for the kids. Not only is it adorable, but the meditations also take kids on a journey with an animal companion. I gave one to a friend whose daughter loves it, listening to it as she carried it from room to room. It has the same time limits as the adult version.
Weighted blanket offers
Our guide to the best weighted blankets breaks down weights and sizes, and has more choices.
Yaasa’s weighted blanket is pricey and rarely discounted, but it’s our favorite if you like a stiff, heavy blanket. The open knit design is nice and allows air to circulate if you’re a hot sleeper like me. It feels much heavier than other options too (that’s a good thing!). You can get it in 15- or 20-pound sizes.
Gravity may be the best-known weighted blanket company, and this blanket is its first budget version. It left nothing to be desired – I loved sleeping with it. It’s 15 pounds and the perfect size for one person to enjoy without bothering their partner. It’s machine washable, but there are a few cover options as well. If you buy the blanket from Amazon, there is an additional 10% discount on the page.
You can get a great blanket for less with the Gravity option above, but Brooklinen’s is beautiful, especially in the terracotta and dark green colors. It’s a nice 12-pounder, with a satisfyingly textured side and a smooth cotton side.
The discount is automatically applied at checkout. Baloo’s throw is slightly smaller than Brooklinen’s, so it may be better for single sleepers (or if your partner doesn’t like weighted blankets). It’s a fresh crisp cotton and there are linen duvet covers available in some really nice colours. The blanket can also be machine washed and dried.
More offers to sleep
Body pillows are usually about your length or slightly shorter. With this Wiggle pillow, I can wrap it around me, wrapping myself between it with my head up. I sleep so well squeezing it. The brand also produces fuzzy covers, but they are currently out of stock. The cover makes it look like a teddy bear, but I like the cooling feel without it.
WIRED reviewer Haley Sprankle tested the sheets, and these Brooklinen sateen are among the top. She says they have a soft, buttery feel but don’t warm up overnight. They also come in nice soft colors and even some patterns like a stunning kaleidoscope.
Blissy’s silk mask is refreshing and comfortable and blocks out all the light so I can sleep. It also comes in 38 (!!) colors and patterns. I alternate between this and Nodpod’s Weighted Sleep Mask.
WIRED review editor Julian Chokkattu loves Parachute’s crisp percale sheets, but the brand’s linen, sateen, and cotton options are also on sale. However, they don’t come in a set, so you’ll have to buy a top sheet for $64 ($16 off) and a fitted sheet for $72 ($18 off) separately—there are fakes for $63 ($16 off). discount) if you need them. If you don’t sleep with a top sheet on, this might be a boon for you.
