It's Black Friday, and you can't move for mattress sales. One of the best we've seen comes from Casper, where there's 25% off all the mattresses in the range (saving you a maximum of $800), and 30% off bedding and sleep accessories. The reason this is one the best Black Friday mattress deals we've seen is that Casper mattress sales aren't very common – the most notable price drops we've seen are discounts on closeout models, or 15% off current lines when you sign up to the Casper newsletter.
Our pick of the bunch is the Casper Original Hybrid. This is essentially the bestselling original, with its three-zoned memory foam providing targeted support to keep your spine aligned as you snooze, but with an added layer of springs. Out of choice, we'd always opt for a hybrid mattress, as the springs tend to create a more responsive sleep surface that's easier to move around on compared to all-foam models, as well as allowing for air to move through the mattress and boosting breathability. The Original Hybrid is the best-rated of the Casper range – a browse through existing customer reviews suggest its a good choice for couples (thanks to strong motion isolation) and side sleepers (the slightly softer sleep surface gives space for the shoulders and hips to nestle in).
However, if you want something cooling and have a bigger budget, the Casper Wave Hybrid Snow is a very strong recommendation. That one unlocks the maximum discount of $800 off.
Whichever mattress you go for, you'll get a 100-night sleep trial you can use to make sure you get on with your choice, along with with free shipping and free returns if you do change your mind during the trial period. There's also a 10-year limited warranty.
