As TechRadar's Sleep Editor, I've been keeping a keen eye on the Prime Day deals to see if there are any bargains on products that'll help you get a better night's sleep. There are few hot deals on mattresses (this Casper bargain is the best one) and toppers (here's the best one), but probably the best selection is on mattress protectors.
This event ends today (11 Oct), and the best offers I've spotted are on mattress protectors – there are a number of good discounts on protectors from big-name sleep brands.
The best mattress protectors are designed as an extra layer to protect your bed from spills, stains and accidents. Some are waterproof, others are lightly padded, and some are even designed to help kill off bedbugs. If you've invested in the best mattress you can afford, these are an essential extra to keep your purchase clean, fresh, and looking like-new for as long as possible.
They're typically inexpensive, but some top picks are even more affordable right now. Be aware you do need to be an Amazon Prime subscriber to unlock these deals, but you can use your free trial and cancel it down the line if it turns out not to suit you. (And there are plenty of excellent offers on all kinds of tech and homeware, so it's definitely worth taking a look.)
