Mattress sales are the best way to pick up a quality mattress for a cheaper price than usual – and there are some fantastic cheap mattress deals to be found at the moment. As a rule, we’d recommend buying the best mattress you can afford. You get what you pay for with mattresses, and given that we spend almost 16 years of our life in bed, it’s important to have the right level of support and comfort for a decent night’s sleep. 

But there are plenty of mattress sales throughout the year, offering decent mattress discounts that make even the most expensive mattresses more affordable. And while we tend to see the highest volume of mattress deals over Black Friday, Amazon Prime Day and traditional sales periods like Christmas and January, it’s nearly always possible to bag a bargain. 

We’ve searched the most reputable retailers to find the best-value mattress deals right now, so whether you’re looking for a memory foam mattress, pocket-sprung, hybrid mattress or another type, you’ll find all the best cheap single, double and king mattresses (and more) below.

Read on for our pick of today’s best mattress deals, followed by our pick of the best cheap mattresses you can buy...

Reasons to buy
+Extremely cheap +Comfortable but firm+Great support 
Reasons to avoid

As a rule, we don’t normally recommend open coil mattresses because they tend to give a less good night’s sleep. Happy Beds’ Super Orthopaedic Open Coil Spring mattress is the exception to the rule though, with almost 1,000 great reviews on Amazon. A thick layer of sturdy reflex foam sits on a strong network of traditional open coil springs, providing a firm level of support that Happy Beds says is “perfect for those seeking orthopaedic assistance”. We’re can’t guarantee this aspect – but at around £150 for a double on Amazon at the moment, this is easily one of the best cheap mattresses you can buy.
