Rare Nectar flash sale brings Black Friday mattress pricing back for the weekend

Nectar has surprised us with the sudden launch of a spring flash sale - and it's a big one too, with 25% off everything across the site. That drops the price of Nectar's flagship mattress back to its lowest ever, and that's notable because this is a deal we've only ever seen in the run-up to Black Friday in the past. But it's just for this weekend. 

In total, there are savings of up to $505 across the entire Nectar site, which includes mattresses, bed frames and bedding. On mattresses specifically, it brings the price of a queen-sized Nectar Memory Foam down to just $674 (usually $899) - that equals the cheapest price we've ever seen. We rate this model highly in our best mattress guide: it's an excellent mid-range option for anyone on a tighter budget, and offers strong support, pressure relief and motion isolation.

Nectar usually only runs this flash sale once a year in November. It doesn't include the $499 of free gifts that the company gives away with each mattress for the rest of the year, but the prices are lower. In fact, we don't think we'll see prices drop this low in the Memorial Day mattress sales, so if you're looking to pay the least amount of money for a new Nectar mattress, it's the best deal you'll get, although it's always worth checking Nectar coupon codes to be on the safe side. And it still comes with all the other benefits you expect from Nectar, including the 365-night free trial and forever warranty.
