Sleep is essential, but it's not always easy. Some people can sleep on a plank of wood, and some of us need the perfect mattress, the crispest sheets perfectly tucked, and a nice sound machine crackling nearby. Luckily, there are Black Friday deals on all those things. The prices included here for mattresses are for the queen-size version.

When it comes to mattresses, the rule to live by is to never pay full price. No matter the time of year, there's always a sale coming up. List prices are set artificially high so that deals seem extravagant, but they aren't. We've handpicked the best deals below, but our Best Mattresses guide has more options and detailed explanations of hybrid versus all-foam.
This is our favorite mattress, and it's the one you should get if money is no object. This is the same price it was during its Memorial Day sale and $50 more than last Black Friday (the base price has risen). It lives up to its Luxe name and is plush and cushiony on top, but it still has a medium-firm feel that's good for all sleeping positions. The amount of money off depends on the size you choose. Click the view offer button on the top of the website to see exactly how much, and which code you'll need to apply at checkout. Each mattress order comes with two pillows.
