    Mattress brands and retailers alike have extended their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, so you can take advantage of some of the best prices of the year on new mattresses.

    We keep tabs on the mattresses that do well in Consumer Reports’ tests to show you the best offers on high-quality models from top brands such as GhostBed, Sleep Number, Tuft & Needle, and more. The prices listed below are for the queen-size version, but all other sizes are similarly discounted.

    And if you’re a CR member, you can take advantage of some exclusive mattress and bedding deals on brands like Avocado, Essentia, Reverie, and Saatva. You’ll need to be logged in to see the details.

    Mattresses

    Bear Mattress is offering 30 percent off sitewide right now for its Fat Bear Sale in honor of the 10th anniversary of Fat Bear Week—an annual tradition of voting for the fattest bear at Katmai National Park in Alaska. A mattress purchase will also get you a free sheet set, two free Cloud pillows, and a free mattress protector. Just use the code BEAR30 at checkout.

    The Bear Original foam mattress performs well in our tests, and it’s a good choice for back and side sleepers who are petite or of average height. (Tall folks may want to look elsewhere.) CR’s tests found that this mattress tends to retain heat, so it may be best for those who sleep cooler.

    Why it’s a good deal: This matches the best price we’ve seen for the mattress this year.

    The Puffy Lux Hybrid innerspring/foam mattress-in-a-box comes through with above-average support for nearly every size and style of sleeper. The exception: large and tall back sleepers. The durability is impressive, but stability is just average, which could leave sleepers feeling vibrations from a partner’s movements. And this model doesn’t make shifting sleep positions easy. With a firmness rating of one out of 10, it’s quite soft.

    Why it’s a good deal: The code SAVE800 takes a whopping $800 off the list price of this mattress, $50 more than we’ve seen in the weeks leading up to Black Friday.

    If you’re sick of synthetic materials, this is a good time to consider the Birch by Helix Natural mattress, which is made with materials like cotton, wool, and natural latex. Right now, Birch’s Fall Into Sleep sale is going strong, so you can take $400 off this mattress with the code FALLSALE400. This hybrid innerspring performs well in our tests for most sleepers, getting its highest scores for support when it comes to petite back sleepers. It also tests superbly for durability and stability.

    Why it’s a good deal: This matches the best discount we’ve seen for this mattress all year. The sale also includes two free Eco-Rest pillows.

    This online-only mattress-in-a-box retailer has a 30 percent discount on its mattresses, including its namesake mattress, the GhostBed, which is worth a look if this mattress is a good fit for you. The deal also includes two free pillows, a common extra when buying directly from a mattress brand.

    The queen-size GhostBed does well in our tests for supporting petites who sleep on their back, and it earns top marks for durability, which means it shows little change in performance after eight to 10 years of simulated use in our tests.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the best price we’ve seen for this model, but it actually hasn’t changed in months, so there’s no urgency to buy now.

    Finding the right mattress for how you sleep can be tricky, but in our tests the Midnight Luxe is a great choice for people of all sizes, whether they sleep on their back or side. When you use the code FALLSALE200, you’ll save $200 on this mattress and get two free pillows in Helix’s Fall Into Bed sale. One thing to note about this mattress is that it’s 14 inches high, so you’ll need deep-pocket sheets.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is a decent price for this mattress, but we’ve seen it for $50 less, so it may be worth waiting a bit longer for a bigger discount.

    The Solaire mattress by Saatva is made with certified organic materials, a plus for those who prefer that their bedding be organic and don’t mind the cost. It offers impressive and stable support for all sleepers. Saatva air mattresses also receive high praise for both comfort and owner satisfaction in our member survey. 

    Why it’s a good deal: This isn’t the best sale price we’ve seen for this mattress, but it’s still a decent discount if it checks all your other boxes.

    Sleep Number’s 360 p6 Smart Bed is a top-ranking adjustable air mattress in CR’s ratings. Both partners can adjust the firmness of independent halves of the bed. Our tests found that this mattress doesn’t retain warmth, so it’s a good choice for keeping you cool if you tend to sleep hot.

    Why it’s a good deal: A $500 discount is significant, but it’s worth noting that the sale price has been $200 lower in recent weeks.

    Casper’s Hybrid is an innerspring mattress with several layers of foam. It offers a good night’s rest for all the sleeper sizes and styles we test for. This CR subscribers say Casper mattresses are a great value, and more than half of those surveyed would buy another.

    Why it’s a good deal: The Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is serving up the deepest discount Casper offers on its mattresses, nearly $200 less than the previous low price.

    For its Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, Tuft & Needle is offering up to 20 percent savings on all the brand’s mattresses, including the Original, the Mint, and the Hybrid, as well as accessories like sheets and mattress protectors. A handful of other retailers have the same mattress for about $100 less than T&N’s discounted price. CR’s tests show that Tuft & Needle makes decent mattresses all-around. But the original may be softer than advertised, so be sure to read up on each model before you buy.

    Why it’s a good deal: The sale price at other retailers is the best we’ve seen in six months.

    Sleep Masks

    Mzoo Sleep Mask

    The Mzoo is affordable, well-designed, and effective at blocking light for most face shapes and head sizes. CR’s team of evaluators had a wide range of preferences and needs, and yet most agreed that the Mzoo mask was a great option.

    Why it’s a good deal: Budget-friendly even before a discount, plain, and oh-so-comfortable—what’s not to like? However to get the $17.99 right now you’ll need to sign up for Subscribe & Save service, which you can cancel at any time.

    Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask

    While our evaluators were certainly amused by the appearance of this mask, those strange contoured eye cups may be appealing to people with lash extensions or who dislike the feeling of fabric on their lids. However, one evaluator found the material inside the cups a bit rough on her skin, and too wide for her small face. But if your head is average or big, you might love the Nidra mask. The price is good, it offers lots of space for the eyes to flutter freely, and even the appearance can be cool if you consider it from a different perspective.

    Why it’s a good deal: This is the usual sale price for this eye mask.

    Sunrise Alarm Clocks

    JALL Wake Up Light Sunrise Alarm Clock

    The JALL Wake Up Light Sunrise Alarm Clock is at least half the price of other clocks we tested, but from an ease-of-use standpoint, this model comes out on top. It has two independent alarms (so you can set them for different times depending on your routine), seven alarm tones (including “wind bells” and birds chirping), an FM radio, and a fall-asleep mode that simulates a sunset (though no white-noise option).

    Why it’s a good deal: Already on the more affordable end, this sale price makes the JALL an even sunnier option.

    Philips SmartSleep Wake-up Light HF3520/60

    With the Philips SmartSleep Wake-up Light HF3520/60, you can wake up to one of five nature-inspired sounds or an FM radio. The clock glows with red, orange, and yellow hues that ultimately brightens to a maximum intensity of 300-lux (which you can adjust down, according to your preference). Pressing snooze will temporarily shut off the sound alarm but not the light, which may keep you from falling back asleep (a good thing, if you truly want to wake up).

    Why it’s a good deal: A discount of $20 on this model is worth considering.
