Mattress sales: our top picks

Mattress topper deals

Not quite ready to buy a new mattress? A  mattress topper can make an older bed feel brand new, or a too hard mattress softer, and vice versa. Not only does a mattress topper supplement the comfort of your mattress, but it can also add support to a mattress that may be too soft or firm for your liking.

Read our best mattress toppers guide or see below for the best ones and their cheapest prices.

Mattress protector deals

Along with your new mattress purchase, you're going to want to add a mattress protector to your basket, too. After all, there's no point in forking out lots of money on an expensive, luxury mattress if you're not going to protect it, right? A mattress protector sits on top of your mattress to protect it from spillages or stains and allergens and irritants like bed bugs, mold or dead skin.
