Looking for the best Black Friday mattress deals of the year? As a professional bargain hunter and product tester who has put the best mattresses through their paces, the only bed I would buy is the Awara Natural Hybrid. It’s on sale now for an all-time low of $949 per queen. Best of all, you don’t have to wait until Black Friday to get this deal because it’s valid now. There’s no telling how long this offer will last, but I think it will pop up again during Black Friday mattress deals on the same day.
I’ve personally tested the Awara and will share my thoughts in my next review, but if you’re in the market for a quality organic mattress that won’t break the bank, the Awara is the one. It has a firm, responsive feel that’s great for group sleepers, along with great pressure relief for anyone with joint or back pain. Plus, it comes with a full-year trial and a lifetime warranty.
However, the Awara won’t suit everyone, especially if you’re a light side sleeper or with a restless partner. So, I’ve included several other deals you might want to keep an eye on — or shop TechRadar’s general mattress sales hub to find the bed of your dreams at a low price.
Buy it if…
✅ You want a firmer, more responsive bed: Unlike memory foam, which has a sinking feel, latex subtly cradles your joints for significant pressure relief without feeling like your bed is “swallowing you.” Plus, if you toss and turn, the Awara’s combination of latex and springs will make it easy to switch positions at night.
✅ You are looking for your “eternal rank”: Latex mattresses can last up to 25 years with proper maintenance. Add to that Awara’s forever warranty, and you’re sure to enjoy your mattress for nearly two decades. (In my experience, my fellow testers and I were impressed with the Awara’s build quality.)
✅ You suffer from allergies and/or night sweats: Latex is a naturally breathable material that is also resistant to dust mites and mildew. With an organic cotton and wool blend cover, the Awara will keep sleepers cool while providing comfort to those who suffer from asthma and airborne allergies.
Don’t buy it if…
❌ Sharing a bed with a fidgety partner: The Awara’s combination of latex and responsive springs means you’re vulnerable to feeling your partner’s movements, which doesn’t bode well if they’re a restless sleeper. Since Awara does not come in a king split, couples may want to look elsewhere.
❌ You’re a side sleeper and weigh less than 130 pounds: If you’re petite — especially a side sleeper — you’ll find it difficult to break through the Awara’s harder surface. Consider using a medium or plush bed instead, like the one in our Helix Midnight mattress review.
❌ You like to sink into your mattress: Latex is excellent for relieving pressure, but it achieves this goal differently than memory foam. If you like feeling comfortable, the light embrace of the Awara won’t be enough for you. Alternatively, consider a memory foam mattress – check out our top picks in our Nectar mattress review.
Alternatives to consider
The Awara may be the right price for your budget but not the right fit for your sleep preferences. Fortunately, there are many options if you want to find something else for sale…
