Avocado makes some top-notch mattresses, and this sale is a great chance to save on the Green or the Green Pillowtop. Both Avocado mattresses support a wide range of side and back sleeper body types. On our firmness scale, the Avocado Green is very firm and the pillow top is medium firm.
To get the savings, use the code SAVE10 at checkout. CR members can to save a little bit more through an exclusive offer for members only.
Why it’s a good deal: We’ve seen these mattresses for about $200 less apiece, so you may want to wait and see if the prices improve.
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.
For Black Friday, the Essentia Stratami is discounted at 25 percent off its full price and comes with two free pillows and a sheet set. It has been one of the top-ranking foam mattresses in CR’s ratings for several years. This mattress is good at supporting people of all sizes, whether they sleep on their side or back, but it earns the highest marks for supporting petite and average-sized people who sleep on their back. This mattress meets two organic standards, the Global Organic Latex Standard and the Global Organic Textile Standard.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a bit better than the standard discount Essentia offers, because it also includes the sheet set (the pillows always tend to be free). If you’re a CR member, you can save even more with an exclusive coupon code, too.
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 BFWKND300, you’ll save $300 on this mattress and get two free pillows in Helix’s Black Friday 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: The Black Friday sale price beats the previous low by $50, making this the best deal we’ve seen for this mattress.
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 sale is serving up the deepest discount Casper offers on its mattresses, nearly $200 less than the previous low price.
For its early Black Friday pre-sale, 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.
Bear Mattress is offering 35 percent off sitewide right now for Black Friday. A mattress purchase will also get you a free sheet set, two free Cloud pillows, and a free mattress protector. Just use the code BF35 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 is $50 better than the best price we’ve seen for the mattress this year.
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 Black Friday sale is going strong, so you can take $400 off this mattress with the code BLACKFRIDAY400. 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 is $50 more than 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.
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: The sale price has jumped up about $80 since last week, and will probably drop back down again for Black Friday weekend.
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: This is now $100 less than last week, but still $100 more than the lowest we’ve seen. It may drop further for Black Friday.
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 (we bought ours for $17 recently), plain, and oh-so-comfortable—what’s not to like?
Slip Sleep Mask
There’s no doubt about it: This popular mask is gorgeous. It’s made with stunning silk fabric, with colors including a lush navy, a graceful ballet pink, and opulent gold. It has a scrunchy backstrap that stretches rather than adjusts, which allows for a more seamless look (but perhaps an imperfect fit). To that end, some evaluators found that the mask was true to its name and slipped during the night.
Why it’s a good deal: At $10 off, the Slip makes a great gift for that stylish someone in your life—just make sure to get a gift receipt in case it well, slips.
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: We paid $17.95 for our mask, so this is an even better discount from the list price.
Baloo Living Weighted Blanket
The Baloo weighted blanket has a cotton cover and glass beads. It comes in a few colors— Linen covers, in a choice of six colors, are sold separately. Baloo says the blanket is machine-washable and dryer-safe. You can also get it monogrammed by Baloo (for an additional fee) as a special gift.
Why it’s a good deal: This blanket is usually on the pricier end, so saving up to $75? That’s a nice chunk of change.
Luna Weighted Blanket
On the under $100 end of things, the Luna weighted blanket is a basic cotton option, filled with glass beads. It does not come with a duvet cover, but you have several colors and materials to choose from if you’d like to buy one separately. Luna says you can wash it in cold water on the gentle setting and hang it to dry or tumble-dry on low heat.
Why it’s a good deal: You can take that $20 you saved and spend it on a sleep mask on sale (see above)!
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, these savings 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.
