You may be tired of hearing it, but even the most brilliant makeup hacks pale in comparison to good old-fashioned beauty sleep, and Black Friday bedding deals are your one-way ticket to REM. We know it’s easier said than done, but proper rest requires proper tools, so we invite you to reconsider your roster: the sheets, the mattress, the pillows, heck, even the throw blanket at the foot of your bed.
In 2022, we saw some dreamy bedding sales beyond the scope of typical Black Friday beauty deals, thanks to sleep brands offering steep discounts on their best-selling products. Take Casper, for example. You could get $800 knocked off their iconic mattress, famous for its spine-aligning premium foam (say that ten times fast). Then, Brooklinen had a 25 percent off sitewide sale that included their ultra-snuggly down comforter and cotton percale sheets.
So, sleepyhead, if you’ve been putting off a rest renovation due to budget constraints, Black Friday 2023 is the best time to invest in quality sleep. Thus, we’ve curated a list of products we hope to see on sale again. So whether it’s a cooling comforter, a silky set of sheets, or a life-changing mattress (shown below at a queen-size price point), stop counting pennies and start counting sheep. Happy shopping!
Last year, Nectar Sleep‘s site saw a 33 percent discount — AKA hundreds off the memory foam or hybrid mattress of your dreams. If you’re eyeing Nectar’s products now, remember that the bed comes in a few different thicknesses, and for an extra $99, you can add the brand’s NectarCool technology. The five layers of foam work together to keep your sleep cool, comfy, supportive, and stable. If you missed last year’s sale, don’t let that keep you up at night; we’re feeling good about Black Friday 2023 at Nectar.
Stearns & Foster
You learn something new every day. Like, just now, you learned you don’t have to pay for a hotel stay to soak up a luxury mattress snooze. Stearns & Foster tends to have major Black Friday bedding deals that’ll make you want to lug your current mattress to the curb. In 2022, you could get $200 off the Estate mattress, $400 off the Lux Estate mattress, and $600 off the Reserve mattresses — all of which come with a 10-year warranty and 90-night sleep trial. No complaints here.
In 2022, Parachute‘s 20 percent sitewide sale was a one-stop shop for a whole room makeover, and the brand’s Matelesse Coverlet (named for the French weaving technique) was an excellent place to start. We love how it looks strewn atop a handmade quilt or folded quaintly at the foot of the bed. Which bed, you ask? Well, thanks to the sale, it very well could be the Eco Comfort Mattress. The New Zealand wool, organic cotton, and pocketed steel coils make the mattress firm in the middle and soft at the edges to support healthy back alignment and cushion your head. But before you finish your shopping spree, consider the Waffle Robe, which is perfect for, you guessed it, waffles in bed.
DreamCloud‘s signature hybrid memory foam and innerspring coil hybrid memory foam mattress might be the bed you didn’t know you were missing. During Black Friday 2022, you could score 25 percent off everything on DreamCloud’s website plus an additional $599 worth of accessories (yup) for free, including a mattress protector, sheet set, and two cooling pillows. The brand has earned a ton of accolades, and each bed has seven layers of mattressy goodness.
Luna offered up to 60 percent off its entire collection of cozy products last year. The brand’s most beloved products include an ultra-warm Sherpa Weighted Blanket and a Cooling Weighted Blanket, which you can find on Amazon, accompanied by thousands of glowing reviews. You may have heard about the benefits of weighted blankets (they release serotonin, increase melatonin, and reduce cortisol). Still, we understand if the mere thought of laying underneath something heavy activates your sweat glands — no need to lose your cool, though, because Luna’s products have built-in temperature-regulating technology.
Last year, Helix had its most competitive sale yet, where the more you spent, the more you could save — like $100 off your total order when you spent $600, or $350 off when you spent $2,950. But the real kicker? With every order, you received two free Dream Pillows, crafted with a 100-percent cotton shell, plush hypoallergenic fill, and machine-washable fabric. We recommend the Helix Midnight Mattress, which is ideal for side sleepers due to its medium-firm and contoured support. We’re at the edge of our seats (beds) to see what the brand does in 2023.
If you’re looking to invest in top-tier sheets, Brooklinen‘s Classic Percale Set (which includes one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillowcases) is a box-checker: crisp, cooling, and made from 100 percent ultra-soft cotton. Last year, everything was 20 percent off for Black Friday, including the Flannel Duvet Cover, which is snuggly and breathable. We’re anticipating a similar sale this year and honestly can’t wait.
Cozy Earth has made several appearances in Oprah’s Favorite Things, thanks to products like its Bamboo DuvetCover and Sheet Set — which were 30 percent off last year. Bamboo is a great alternative to cotton if you’re trying for something that wicks moisture without sacrificing softness. Before the bedding hits shelves, Cozy Earth washes them in a pulp-softening soap to form the fabric into parchment-like sheets. So, as Black Friday rounds the corner, make a list of Cozy Earth goodies you want to grab before they’re sold out.
If the word “lumpy” immediately conjures up an image of your bed, you might want (need) to consider Casper’s Black Friday mattress deals. Their Original Mattress uses a supportive and durable foam with an ergonomic multi-zone design that keeps your spine aligned throughout the night. The Original Hybrid Mattress does all the same good stuff but has springs for extra airflow. Regardless of which style you choose…back pain, who?
Tuft & Needle
Tuft & Needle offered up to 25 percent off sleep accessories and $800 off mattresses, which included the beloved Mint Mattress. This pick features cooling, cushiony support that conforms to your body and relieves pressure. It also has reinforced edges, meaning the mattress stays still when you climb on or off, making it ideal if you share a bed with your partner. You might also want to grab the Travel Blanket, to keep some home-comfiness with you on long flights or car trips. Thank us later.
This is an ideal moment to toss the sheets you’d feel too guilty to use in the guest room and upgrade to linen. Last year, Cultiver offered 60 percent off its beloved bedding, crafted from a European flax material and then pre-washed for softness. These classically chic Linen Sheets come in a ton of hues, ranging from slate to cedar, perfectly tailorable to your bedroom’s aesthetic. Make it a complete set and grab their Linen Duvet Cover, too. The brand prides itself on the high quality of its linen, defined by its dyeing process, enzyme wash, and the source of the flax, among other criteria. Sounds legit. Sign us up.
Emma Sleep offered a delightfully competitive Black Friday 2022 deal: two free foam pillows with every purchase and a 50 percent price cut on all mattresses, including its newest addition, the CliMax Hybrid mattress. Melt into five layers of memory foam with temperature-regulating technology and an extra layer of pocketed springs for solid support. We love how the bed successfully staves off sinking and sweating while still resting at a more budget-friendly price than some of its peers. Yay.
Essentia mattresses are must-haves for allergy-prone sleepers/shoppers. Handmade in Canada, the brand uses organic latex foam that helps fend off dust mites by skipping wool, cotton, fibers, and springs entirely. Last year, the whole site was 25 percent off and you got two free pillows with your order. Oh, and if you’re in the market to spoil your fur baby (as many of us often are), Essentia makes an organic pet bed, which is just the cutest thing ever.
If you (or your sweetie) are a sweaty sleeper, Buffy is magic. Its Cloud Comforter is crafted with 100 percent eucalyptus for a more breathable sleep than you might not get with traditional cotton or linen. It’s moisture-wicking, machine washable, and fluffy without being heavy. Make it a set and add a matching Cloud Pillow to your cart. It comes in three fill levels, each suitable for a different sleeping position (back, belly, side). Something else that makes Buffy stand out? It allows you to try its products at home for seven nights for free (free shipping, too).
Turns out, you can achieve your Pinterest board’s “summer beach house” aesthetic without the summer or the beach house, thanks to Pom Pom’s bedding. The elegant, Belgian-founded brand’s Parker Linen Duvet Set is what we call a luxury basic. The 100% linen set has a duvet cover (we love it in Cream) and two shams. For a finishing touch, the Gathered Linen Bedskirt is also perfect for hiding all the clothing you’ve crammed under the bed. If you’re not feeling full-price, worry not. Last year, Pom Pom had a 30 percent off sitewide sale, which bodes well for this year’s bedding haul.
For Black Friday 2022, Sealy offered up to $200 off its best-selling, rave-reviewed mattresses, including the Sealy Posturepedic Hybrid. The bed features high-density motion-reducing coils, memory foam, and a reinforced mattress edge to help maintain firmness for years. If you’re in the market for a whole new bed frame, the Power Base provides remote-controlled position customization. so your bed can adapt to however you read, work, watch, and sleep. Also, unlike some of the more boutique-ish boxed mattress bands, you’ll likely find a Sealy mattress at a store near you, meaning you can flop around on it a little before you swipe your card.
If you shopped at Leesa last Black Friday, you could save up to $700 on a mattress and get two free pillows/ Its popular Original Hybrid model offers the best of both worlds, thanks to premium foam that gives a bouncy, cushiony feel, while an innerspring provides all-night support. Sleepers love how it’s soft without being too soft. If you’re taking advantage of Leesa sales this holiday season, we recommend grabbing a Tencel mattress protector that can be thrown in the washer and dryer for an instant refresh.
