Mattresses are a huge investment, but they’re also one of the most important you can make. A good mattress plays a major role in determining how you sleep, and it goes without saying that that’s also a big influence on our health. But it isn’t always easy to part with nearly £1,000 to get the right mattress, meaning sales shopping can be absolutely crucial. Luckily, mattress sales happen pretty regularly throughout the year, and it’s easy to get a good discount on some of the best brands. Especially if you shop at an event like Amazon Prime Day.
This year falling on July 11 and 12, Amazon Prime Day is the platform’s biggest and best sales event of the year, and mattresses are a big part of that. And it's even set to hopefully incorporate some of the most exciting brands, like Simba, Emma and Silentnight.
To help you navigate the day as smoothly and efficiently as possible, and to make sure you get the best deals, we’ve already started tracking down the very best Amazon Prime Day mattress sales, many of which have even started going live as part of Amazon’s Early Prime Day deals. Whether you’re after a memory foam mattress, a hybrid, or a traditional one with pocket springs, there’s something for every kind of sleeper.

What is Amazon Prime Day?
Second, only to Black Friday and the January sales, Amazon Prime Day has secured itself in the sale shopping calendar as one of the biggest tentpole events of the year. Falling each year on two days in the summer, although this was delayed to October because of the pandemic in 2020, Prime Day sees Amazon drop its prices on a wide range of products on site. Whether you're after body hair trimmers or toothbrushes, make sure you don't miss out on one of the best money-saving opportunities around.
How do I sign up to Amazon Prime?
The best way to reap the benefits of Prime Day is, of course, to make sure you're signed up to Amazon Prime. Not only will this give you free next-day delivery, but you'll also have access to the Prime sales for only £8.99 per month, or try a free 30-day subscription trial when using a unique email address. Dreamy!
How do I choose the right mattress?
Mattresses vary quite substantially, so figuring out which one is right for you involves taking quite a few factors into consideration. Part of it comes down to personal preference around whether you like a firmer or a softer mattress, whether you like to sleep in a cooler environment, and how much you care about the more premium mattress features, but you'll also need to do some research into which style of mattress will work best for your sleeping position, body size, and to support any areas of your body which might require a bit more attention.
