We have news of an exciting Emma mattress sale to bring you. Both in the UK and the US, the company has slashed its prices, giving people the chance to upgrade their bedroom for less. In the UK, customers can get up to 60% off their bill as part Emma’s early bird Black Friday sale (opens in new tab), while in the US it’s possible to get up to 50% off the price of an Emma Original or Emma CliMax Hybrid (opens in new tab) – two mattresses that could make the world of difference to your bedtime experience.
There’s no need to input an Emma mattress discount code when making a purchase – just choose what you want, head to checkout and your price reduction will be added automatically.
Emma sits at the top of our best mattress guide because its bed-toppers offer supreme comfort at a great price. The brand offers a risk-free trial (200 nights in the UK, 100 nights in the US), meaning you’ll have ample time to test your purchase – and if you change your mind during the trial, Emma will refund your money.
Which Emma mattress UK should I choose?
Emma’s UK mattress selection consists of two mattresses. As we explain in our Emma Original mattress review, the Original (priced from £499 when not on sale) is the most affordable of the range, making it the best memory foam mattress for sheer value for money, with its closest rival being the Nectar (see our round-up of the latest Nectar mattress deals and sales for savings on that one).
The Emma Original is made from three types of foam and topped with a temperature-regulating top cover. We rate this as a true medium firmness (5 out of 10), making it a comfy choice for most people apart from those with much heavier bodies (you may sink in too much). The side sleepers on our testing panel loved it and found it cushioned hips and shoulders very well.
The Emma Premium (priced from £799 when not on sale) is the second offering from this top-rated mattress in a box brand, and this is a hybrid mattress made from memory foam and coils. The Emma Premium mattress is designed to offer higher levels of full body support for heavier bodies and would suit back and stomach sleepers, couples needing a firmer mattress, and any looking for that Emma mattress comfort but with more back support.
If you have a bigger budget and want a highly breathable, cooling hybrid, we’d also recommend the Simba Hybrid Luxe, or the Dormeo S Plus Evolution. We’ve rounded-up the latest and best Simba mattress sales and discounts, in addition to the best Dormeo mattress sales, to help you save. You can also use our Simba vs Emma mattress comparison to see how the Hybrid and the Original differ.
Which Emma mattress US should I choose?
The Emma Original US is made of three memory foam layers, with each designed to offer a different level of support. The bottom layer aides spinal alignment (so you don’t wake up feeling stiff), and the middle assists pressure relief through even weight distribution (so no pesky pain or pressure spots on your body). The top layer delivers high levels of motion isolation, which is great for couples where one of you is a restless sleeper.
All of this is wrapped up in a highly effective climate regulating top cover, which prevents a build-up of heat or moisture when you’re in bed. It’s good news for warm sleepers, even if it isn’t a proper cooling mattress. You could also team it with one of the best mattress toppers for cooler, comfier sleep, such as a gel-infused topper.
But that’s not the only mattress Emma US has on offer. Also available is the Emma Original Hybrid. This six-layer mattress consists of multiple layers of cooling foam, a layer of comfort foam, individually-wrapped 8-inch springs and a breathable moisture-wicking cover. Emma recommends it for hot sleepers who are on a budget; after a 42% off discount, a queen sells for $995.
Emma mattress sale: today’s best prices
UK Emma Original mattress deals
The Emma Original is the brand’s most popular mattress and its cheapest. While it has a 5 (out of 10) firmness rating, it’s on the softer side of medium firmness, making it a brilliant choice for side sleepers who need extra cushioning to reduce pressure on their hips and knees. We have also tested the Emma Original with combi sleepers (people who switch between sleep positions) and they loved the Emma regardless of the position they ended up in.
If you do feel that the Original isn’t firm enough or soft enough for your body, you can request a free comfort layer from Emma. This is excellent as you can closely tailor the feel of this mattress to your body weight and posture needs.
The Emma Original sports a no motion transfer design, which is ideal for couples where one of you is a restless sleeper or moves between positions in the night. Hygiene wise the Emma ticks all the boxes too with a removable and machine-washable cover to keep allergens, stains and bacteria at bay.
While it’s already an affordable option, we have seen cheaper prices on the Emma Original during previous Black Friday mattress deals events. Whether Emma will offer bigger discount codes this November remains to be seen, but at this already low price the Emma Original is already an excellent cheap mattress deal.
The Emma Premium mattress is best suited to tall and heavier bodies thanks to its medium-firm design that’s definitely on the firmer side. It sports 12.5cm pocket springs, which is a real step up from the now-discontinued Emma Hybrid, and these springs help the mattress to stay cooler throughout the night.
We asked a hot sleeper to snooze on the Emma Premium and they stayed cool and comfy all night, even with a lightweight duvet over them during warm weather. This isn’t a proper cooling mattress per se, but the layer of breathable Airgocell memory foam definitely boosts airflow. Tempur makes an effective cooling mattress called the Breeze, which is often on sale – check out our guide to the best Tempur-Pedic mattress sales for the latest deals.
Emma has designed its Premium mattress for enhanced lower back and leg support, making it a good choice if you regularly deal with pain or pressure in those areas. The heavy lifting here is mainly carried out by a layer of pressure-relieving viscoelastic, a material developed by astrophysicists and the perfect partner to all that Airgocell foam. At the base is a layer of Emma’s famous HRX (High Resiliency Extra) cold foam to keep your spine aligned for comfier sleep in any position.
Emma Premium mattress deals typically are a little trickier to come by than discounts on the Emma Original, but we’re seeing an astonishing 55% discount that’s knocking prices to as low as £359 in a single. That’s on par with what we’d expect from Black Friday mattress sales. If you’re seeking relief from night sweats and achy joints, the Emma Premium is a spectacular value.
US Emma Original mattress deals
The Emma Original Mattress US is not to be confused with the UK version, but it does offer the same fantastic value for money. It’s the only Emma mattress you can buy direct from the brand in the US and it suits all sleeping positions, especially side sleepers. That’s because it feels soft and cushioned beneath the hips, knees and shoulders during side sleeping positions.
There are four layers to this Emma, starting with HRX (High Resiliency Extra) cold foam in the base. This is included in all Emma mattresses and it’s there to boost pressure relief and to keep your back and shoulders properly supported as you lie down. Above that sits a layer of memory foam for extra pressure relief, and to ensure the mattress contours to your unique curves during sleep. As such, you shouldn’t feel any pain or pressure,
Emma has added a layer of Airgocell foam to reduce motion isolation from you and your partner (so you don’t wake each other up so easily when tossing and turning). There’s also a soft cover that keeps moisture and body heat at bay, though we found it still slept a little warm. Even so, at this super-low price, it’s hard to complain.
During the Emma Labor Day Sale, the Emma Original Mattress US is 25% off so you can get a king size for just $895 (was $1,195) or queen size for $745 (was $895). That’s a solid offer but bear in mind that we’ve seen as much as 45% off in the past.
Do I need an Emma mattress discount code?
The best Emma mattress deals are usually found through a discount code. However, for current Emma mattress sales in the US and UK, you don’t need to use a coupon.
When they are required, most Emma mattress discount codes are available via the Emma site in the form of a sale banner that appears when you add your chosen mattress to the shopping cart. And often you can just click on the banner to activate the discount without even having to type in the code yourself.
Emma Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress deals in 2022: what to expect
The last Emma mattress Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress deals were some of the best we’ve seen from the brand in both the UK and the US. This discount covered all Emma mattresses, plus a range of bedding accessories.
In the UK there was up to 50% off mattresses and bundles, with the Emma Original reduced to a starting price of £249.50 (was £499) and a double size Emma Mattress costing just £349.50 (was £699). We also saw a 40% discount on the Emma Weighted Blanket but it sold out quickly.
By comparison, the year before in the UK there was a 35% discount at John Lewis, but the biggest discount came from Emma itself. This included Black Friday mattress deals on sleep accessories and bundles, so there really was something for all budgets.
In the US this year, we saw a 40% Emma mattress Black Friday Emma deal. At the time this was the best discount on the one and only Emma US offering, so it didn’t beat the 45% off discount we saw for Independence Day.
The best Emma Cyber Monday mattress sale was up to $1,466 on mattress bundles, followed by a 40% saving on the brand’s foam and ACT hybrid mattresses. A queen size Emma Original dropped to $659 (was $1,099), with no discount code needed.
All of this bodes well for the Emma Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress sale 2022, as Emma has been steadily increasing its discounts and bundle offers each year to ward off fierce competition from the likes of Nectar and Simba, which also offered 45% off deals.
We’ll be rounding up the best Emma mattress sales and discounts right here, so bookmark this page and you won’t miss a saving.
