We can’t think of a higher-priority investment than sleep, which is why we’re already watching for the best early Black Friday mattress deals of the 2022 holiday shopping season. Because, no matter what life may throw at you, your bed is there for you. And, with a long, unforgiving winter ahead, there’s no better time than Black Friday 2022 to upgrade your bedding essentials and snag a new mattress at a discount.
Believe it or not, many retailers and mattress brands have early deals available right now, so it’s already a bit of a mess to keep track of where the best Black Friday mattress sales live—and in the midst of all these fall sales, having a streamlined shopping strategy is more important than ever. Luckily, it is literally our job to lose sleep over the best markdowns on sleep products.

How to shop for a high-quality mattress on Black Friday
In order to find a mattress that will reliably prevent back pain, provide pressure relief, and, most importantly, help you get a solid night’s rest night after night, you should shop based on your sleeping position. Side sleepers, for example, stand to benefit from sleeping on a medium-firm mattress—it has the right amount of give to accommodate their knees, hips, and shoulders without sinking too much. Those who sleep on their stomachs or backs, on the other hand, will appreciate the support that comes with a firmer mattress.
Additionally, you should look at a brand’s customer service and return policies to see whether you can enjoy a generous trial period, a warranty, or even free returns if you’re on the fence about your new bed. Many mattress-in-a-box brands offer convenience in value with 100-night free trials (or more) if you’re nervous about purchasing a mattress.
