WHEN IS BLACK FRIDAY 2018?
This year's Black Friday is on Friday 23rd November, with sales lasting for about a week or so, and some retailers, such as Amazon, often cutting prices well before. In other words, keep your eyes peeled for great deals from the beginning of November onwards.
Can you get great Black Friday bedding deals?
Yes – lots of deals will last from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday and beyond. For more details on other deals to expect as well as tips and tricks, dos and don'ts and how Black Friday really works, we've got you covered.
Where should I shop for bedding on Black Friday?
With homeware brands ever more attuned to the Black Friday buzz, you can expect big savings from some of our favourites.
So, you should be able to buy bedding via Amazonand John Lewis among others. And while we can't predict exactly who will be slashing prices on what just yet, why not take a look back in time with us to see what we might expect.
Three years ago saw Marks & Spencer cut its prices by 50 per cent on items such as bedding and towels. In 2016, Habitat reduced the price of blankets across hundreds of lines, and last year they had a fabulous Black Friday sale across the majority of their items. Debenhams also offered large savings on homeware, with 30 per cent off bedding.
However, sometimes retailers opt out of Black Friday – which is why it's worth checking back here for updates because we'll be monitoring the best deals for you.
Are Black Friday bedding savings real?
Yes, but... since many products' prices change frequently, checking the price history of what you're planning to buy on CamelCamelCamel.com or PriceSpy will tell you whether the savings are real or not. These sites show you whether a price is likely to re-occur.
What's more, it's also likely that the bedding you're shopping for will be discounted again soon (think Boxing Day sales). Always check, rather than be distracted by the recommended retail price, especially on big ticket home buys.

Is the bedding right for you?
What do you need to know about bedding materials?
Egyptian cotton is probably the most recognisable and with good reason, as its extra-long fibres make smooth, soft and durable sheets for maximum comfort and an indulgent feel.
The majority of bedding sets will be made from cotton, or a cotton-synthetic or cotton-cashmere blend, but be sure to take a moment to think about the weave. Sateen is very soft, with a subtle lustre, while percale is more matt, with a crisp feel to it that’s perfect for those prone to overheating, or anyone wanting to achieve the ideal hotel bed linen look in their own home.
When it comes to choosing pillows, natural fillings are a traditional choice that have stood the test of time, and for good reason. Duck and goose feathers and down feel soft and luxurious, giving you that extra-cosy sensation of sinking into your pillow. If you like the softness of down but not the heat, or you suffer from allergies or respiratory diseases, you can get synthetic fibre fillings that mimic the feel. For those who need more support, or just prefer the feel of a firm pillow, there are latex and memory foam which are also helpful for sufferers of neck or back pain.
Perfect for ensuring both freshness, mattress protectors not only keep your mattress stain free, but can also feature anti-allergy and heat regulating properties so you benefit from the best night’s sleep possible. The best mattress protector will be breathable and waterproof. If you suffer from dust allergies, you may need to consider a hypoallergenic mattress topper, and for an extra layer of comfort, a quilted or memory foam mattress topper is certainly worth considering.
If you're going the full shebang and purchasing a new mattress too, consider mattress firmness. Mattresses range from soft medium; medium; medium firm; to firm and extra firm.
