WHEN IS BLACK FRIDAY 2018?

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 the money-saving event really works, we've got you covered.
Where should I shop for mattresses on Black Friday?
With homeware brands ever more attuned to the Black Friday buzz, you can expect big savings from some of our favourite brands.
So, you should be able to buy mattresses 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?
In 2015, Marks & Spencer slashed their mattress prices by a huge 50 per cent during Black Friday madness; last year saw big online mattress brands such as Simba, Casper and Eve get in on the action, too, with some of them offering 30 per cent off over the Black Friday weekend.
Wayfair offered a huge £350 saving on a number of Silentnight mattresses, and Eve slashed up to £300 off their high-tech mattresses. But Amazon ruled the roost by selling Casper, Serta and Beautyrest mattresses for a whooping 40 per cent off.
Are Black Friday mattress 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 mattress 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.
