THE year's 2021 and you should no longer have to put up with a creaking old mattress.
That's why we've rounded up the best mattress deals you can get in 2021 to upgrade your bed and get you sleeping better.
In the last few years, there's been umpteen mattress companies starting up online and sending out fancy memory foam creations to your front door at a click of a button.
Typically, these mattresses come out top of the pile whenever reviewers such as Which? Magazine breaks out its rankings (we've reviewed some ourselves too, including Simba, Emma, Eve, Nectar and Brook and Wilde - see below).
The downside? Top quality mattresses all-too-often come with hefty price tags that'll put you off upgrading.
But if you know where (and when) to start your mattress shopping, there's no reason you can't find a decent discount on the mattress of your dreams... see what we did there?
Below, we've rounded up the best offers we can spot on some top quality mattresses, including some exclusive offers for Sun readers.
*Prices and discounts are accurate at the time of writing. Offers are subject to change.
1. Simba Mattresses
- Save up to 35 per cent on Simba mattresses here
And luckily for us, they're currently offering a whopping 35 per cent off their mattresses in September - a discount matching Black Friday last year.
That means you can save big on the Simba Hybrid, the Hybrid Pro and the Hybrid Luxe.
Plus each mattress comes with a 200-night trial and a 10-year guarantee. Yes, please.
2. Emma Mattresses
- New customers save 46 per cent on Emma Hybrid mattresses with our exclusive code SUN - buy here
Emma often has offers on its mattresses, and there's currently a massive 35% off for new customers.
If you want to save yourself an extra 11% (who doesn't?), then simply add the code SUN at checkout.
Billing its product as the UK's 'most awarded mattress', Emma makes a triple-layered core that's designed to be supportive, comfortable, and allow heat to escape so you don't get too hot in the night.
Like most online mattress brands, Emma offers shoppers the chance to return their chosen mattress within 200-nights if they're not happy with it.
We've also reviewed the Emma Original and you can read it here.
3. Nectar Sleep Mattresses
- Save up to £500 off Nectar mattresses in the brand's summer sale here
Nectar Sleep's mattresses are well regarded for being both comfortable and lightweight.
They're also billed as suitable for use with all bed types, whether you've got a platform bed or a slatted base.
And, as an added bonus, you can return the Nectar mattress within 365 nights if you're not completely satisfied with it.

4. Eve Sleep Mattresses
- Save 20% on Eve mattresses when you spend £450 - buy here
Eve mattresses offer a great pressure-relieving, foam feel without the quick-sand sensation that plagues some foam mattresses.
Eve products are quite soft, however, and ideal if you're a side-sleeper.
They're also good if you're sleeping with someone, as they come with a pretty impressive motion isolation feature.

5. Brook and Wilde Mattresses
- 35% off when you spend £500 or more - here
Brook and Wilde make some seriously comfortable sleeping gear (check out our review of the Lux mattress).
And the good news is that with any order over £500 you can save yourself 35%. But hurry — the offer only lasts until midnight on September 13.
If you miss it, keep checking the website for more excellent offers that pop up throughout the year.
6. Otty Mattresses
- Shop up to 40 per cent off Otty mattresses here
Otty is running a "Sleeptember" sale that lets shoppers save up to 40 per cent on its mattresses.
And better yet, the company will also price match other mattress companies if you find a better offer elsewhere.
Not bad for a mattress that's won a series of awards.
7. Dreams Mattresses
- Dreams Summer Savers Event - shop here
Dreams sells a huge range of mattresses and runs deals on different ranges of its mattresses throughout the year — at the moment, you can nab a mattress for up to 60% off.

What is the best mattress for the money?
It's hard to say what the best mattress is for the money because of the number of sales and offers that can be found at various times of the year.
And there's nothing to say that a bargain mattress from Argos won't be the best option for you.
But of the internet brands, we reckon Otty offers up the best balance of quality and affordability, especially since it will price match the other brands.
But if you find these internet-only sellers a bit pricey, check out the Hamarvik sprung mattress from Ikea.
It's got rave reviews and you can get a standard double for £129.
How much should you spend on a mattress?
A good sprung mattress doesn't have to cost much more than £150 for a double.
Memory foam mattresses tend to be a little more expensive, but you can start to find good quality doubles from £300.
Hybrid mattresses, which contain a mix of foam and springs, are more expensive still and can cost anything from £400 to £1,000 and above for a double.
Other factors to consider when you buy include the amount of trial period you'll get (most internet-only brands offer 100 nights), as well as shipping costs, which can quickly send your overall cost soaring.
Some of the online-only brands offer free delivery, such as Emma.
What are the best mattresses to buy?
We've created a mattress buying guide which you can find here for some tips about buying the perfect mattress.
Everyone likes something different though, so it's worth checking out a combination of memory foam, springs, hybrids and different varieties of firmness.
Luckily, loads of mattress-makers offer 100-night return periods, which will let you work out what mattress is the right fit for you.
