Bag a bargain for your bed with our rundown of the best mattress deals in the January sales

Didn’t get a chance to nab a discounted mattress over Christmas? Don’t fret, there’s plenty of time to get your hands on one in the January sales, with offers from Emma, Simba, Nectar and more.

The mattress market has completely transformed in the past few years. All the usual department stores and retailers have found themselves supplanted by a number of online-only, “bed-in-a-box” brands who offer some of the best mattresses about... and deliver straight to your door. These newer companies, always keen to lure in new customers, also often run various deals, discounts and site-wide sales.

If you’re looking for a comfier sleep each night, but you don’t want to lose any by fretting that you’re overspending, we’ve put together a list of the best pocket-sprung, memory foam and hybrid mattress deals out there. If you’re unsure which type is right for you, we suggest you read our mattress buying guide, which lays out the key differences between them, and what type of sleeper they’re suitable for.

While you’re likely to find the biggest savings during peak sales periods such as Black Friday, Christmas and Boxing Day, it’s a rare moment when all the major mattress brands – especially those bed-in-a-box newcomers – aren’t offering some kind of sale. If there’s anything that will make you sleep even easier at night, it’s the satisfaction of nabbing a substantial saving on a quality mattress. With that said, read on for our pick of the best mattress deals you can get right now.

4. Nectar: Save 40% on Nectar mattresses

When we tested Nectar's memory foam mattress, we found it to be very comfortable and supportive. You don't need to take our word for it, though, as the brand offers a ludicrously generous trial period of 365-nights. This gives you a whole year to decide whether its the right mattress for you.

As part of its current sale, Nectar has cut the prices of its mattresses by 40%. A king size of the memory foam mattress, for instance, is down from £819 to just £491, while the hybrid mattress, which we've not yet reviewed, is now just £599 (in a king size), instead of £999. As a final bonus, Nectar is throwing in a free mattress protector with your order, worth up to £75.
