It's worth looking out for Emma mattress sales, especially if you're on the hunt for a new, quality mattress but don't want to spend over the odds.

And there's no time like the present, especially as the mattress brand—who often feature highly on our best mattress list—has now launched a 40%-off summer sale on their Emma Original Hybrid mattress. Emma mattresses often offer some of the best mattress deals, but this is a fantastic offer and you'll be hard-pushed to find better value somewhere else, as not many retailers offer such a big discount on these products.

With the current 40% discount you can snap up a single mattress for £419.40—that's £279.60 off the original £699 price. That's a bigger discount than the brand offered last Black Friday, where they had 35% off their products. However, it is just under the biggest discount we've seen this year at Emma, as they offered 42% off back in May. On Amazon Prime Day, the retailer offered different discounts on different Emma mattress lines. So while only the King size of this mattress was on offer then for 39% off, the whole Emma Original mattress line was half price, which meant the price of a Emma Original single was just £227.37—the cheapest we've seen it. So if you'd prefer that mattress design or don't mind which one you get, then it could be worth waiting to see if a similar deal comes back around next year. Although we would always recommend buying a mattress from the brand retailer, as they tend to offer the best sleep trial/returns policies.

The reputable brand is also currently offering 40% off a selection of their other products, like their Emma Original bed and two of their pillows, which are some of the best pillows we've come across. This is a good time to take advantage of the brand's sale, as 40% is one of the biggest discounts they offer. However, if the product you want isn't currently on sale, Emma does often runs seasonal sales where they offer brilliant savings on different products. And as well as its regular discounts the brand even has the special Emma Deal (available in the US only), where you can get your choice of Emma mattress, mattress protector and pillow all in one bundle to make a 10% saving. For US shoppers, the brand website also offers key worker and military discounts, while the UK site offers key worker and student discounts. If you'd prefer to look around at different brands, there are also some fantastic Simba mattress sales throughout the year.

Emma mattress sales: Today's best offer

Which Emma mattress should you choose?

The Emma range consists of three different mattresses: the Emma Original, the Emma Hybrid, and the Emma Original Hybrid.

The Emma Original mattress uses the brand's HRX material—an elastic layer of foam that provides pressure to keep your spine aligned and keep movement isolated. It creates a supportive base to the mattress—relieving pressure and supporting the alignment of the lower back and shoulders—while the memory foam layer balances the body and adapts to its shape. No matter what your sleeping position, the second foam layer will adapt to your body's pressure and takes the impact of any movement so that partners don't disturb each other's sleep. Meanwhile, the mattress' breathable top layer is climate-regulating, to stop any hot and sweaty nights. For US shoppers, this is the only Emma mattress that is currently available to buy.

The Emma Hybrid has a few of the same supportive layers as the Original, including a moisture-wicking top layer. However, an extra layer with steel micro-coils helps to encourage air circulation, making this a good choice for those who tend to get hot at night. The additional layer is also great for those who prefer a bouncier feel than that which is offered by memory foam.

The Emma Original Hybrid mattress has five layers of supportive material to keep the hips, shoulders, and spine aligned, with extra-tall springs for a touch more bounce and extra air circulation for a cooler sleep. The combination of the foam and springs also mean that movement is isolated, making it a solid choice for those who worry about disturbing their partner in the night.

We'd always recommend buying the brand's mattresses from the Emma website to take advantage of their trial period and returns policy. The mattresses come with a long trial period of 200 nights, allowing you time to decide whether this is the right mattress for you. For those in the US, the trial period is only 100 nights—but that's still a good long stint to make your decision. If you're not happy with the mattress within that time, you'll get a full refund and the company will even come and collect it from your home free of charge.

More of today's best Emma mattress prices

Unlike some other bedding brands that have a whole range of different mattresses, Emma offers a small collection of expertly made products, with three mattresses that are designed to suit different needs.

Do note, however, that only the Emma Original mattress is currently available in the US—with the two Hybrid versions are only on sale in the UK.

1. Emma Original mattress deals

The cheapest Emma mattress you can buy

Specifications
RRP: $799 (twin)/£449 (UK single)
Fill: Memory foam
Depth: 25cm
Sizes: Six (US), Five (UK)
Trial: 100-night (US), 200-night (UK)
Guarantee: 10 years

With medium firmness, The Emma Original mattress uses an elastic layer of foam to keep your spine aligned and relieving pressure on the body. It also adapts to your body's pressure and takes the impact of any movement so that partners don't disturb each other's sleep. Another memory foam layer balances the body and adapts to its shape. The mattress' breathable top layer is climate-regulating, to stop any hot and sweaty nights. For US shoppers, this is the only Emma mattress that is currently available to buy.

This mattress is often on offer for around 40% off on the brand's website, but if you're looking for the cheapest price possible, Amazon very occasionally undercuts Emma. However, this price difference is usually marginal and we would normally recommend buying through Emma directly so that there's no confusion over the extended sleep trial and returns policy. Though if you do want to wait for an even bigger discount and don't mind forgoing the brand's reliable trial and returns policies, it could be worth waiting for the next Amazon Prime Day, as this year's event saw a 50% discount off the entire Emma Original mattress line.

2. Emma Hybrid mattress deals

The best Emma mattress for those who like a soft bounce

Specifications
RRP: £589 (UK single)
Fill: Memory foam and mini pocket springs
Depth: 25cm
Sizes: Five
Trial: 200-night (UK only)
Guarantee: 10 years

Like the Original, the Emma Hybrid has the same HRX and memory foam layers for comfort and support, with a moisture-wicking top for breathability. But, with another spring-filled layer, it gives you a little extra softness; steel micro-coils help to encourage air circulation while also relieving pressure on the body. This makes a nice addition for those who prefer a bouncier feel than that associated with pure memory foam, however, it is a medium-soft often so will be less firm. Pop on a sleep guided meditation and drift off to sleep in no time.

While this mattress isn't currently on sale, it's likely that Emma will run a deal for it sometime soon, as they often run different sales. The cheapest we've seen this mattress this year was in the Amazon Prime Day sale, when it saw a 45% discount on all sizes, taking a UK single from £589 to £330.

3. Emma Original Hybrid mattress deals

The best Emma mattress for those who need firm support

Specifications
RRP: £699 (UK single)
Fill: Memory foam and pocket springs
Depth: 25cm
Sizes: Four
Trial: 200-night (UK only)
Guarantee: 10 years

Bringing together all of the technology of Emma's different mattresses, this cleverly designed mattress has five layers of supportive material to keep the hips, shoulders, and spine aligned, as well as extra-tall springs that offer a touch more bounce and extra air circulation for a cooler sleep. The combination of the foam and springs also mean that any movement is isolated, so you shouldn't disturb your partner if you're a restless sleeper. Essentially, this mattress means your body can enjoy a well-supported sleep without your mind worrying about getting back to sleep in the middle of the night.

If this is one you were hoping to snap up, then we'd recommend buying it now with Emma's 40% off discount. While this isn't the biggest discount it's seen this year—with Emma offering 42% off earlier this year—it's unlikely to see a much bigger discount at any point. Even on Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day this mattress only saw 35% and 39% discounts respectively.

Emma Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress deals in 2021—what we expect

Last year's Black Friday sales saw Emma put on a 35% discount for all of its products across its website. That would've seen the usually £449 Emma Original UK single discounted to £291.85, while the Emma Hybrid UK single would have been reduced from £589 to £382.85. The Emma Original Hybrid mattress would have seen a £244.65 discount from £699 to £454.35. The brand even included a three-month subscription to the wellbeing app Headspace, which would usually cost £29.97, with all of its mattress purchases. Department store John Lewis also offered a 35% off deal on Emma mattresses, but this didn't include the Headspace subscription.

In the US, the brand offered 40% off site-wide, with the sale starting 10 days before Black Friday. Both the UK and US sales ran until the end of the day on Black Friday, without continuing over the weekend. However, Emma introduced the same discounts in its Cyber Monday sale straight after the weekend. 

If you're looking to buy the Emma Original mattress, the current 40% off will save you more money than last year's Black Friday sale. However, we don't know what kind of savings the brand will be offering for this year's event.
