This article is dedicated to bringing you the cheapest Simba mattress sales and deals, whenever you decide to shop. Right now there's up to 55% off mattresses at Simba (opens in new tab)

All four mattresses in the core range are included in the current Simba sale. So that's the fantastic Simba Hybrid Pro, which is our #1 best UK mattress right now, the range-topping Simba Hybrid Luxe, which is pricey but possibly worth it, the multi award-winning Simba Hybrid and the wallet-friendly Simba Hybrid Essential (opens in new tab).

Simba has also added another new mattress to its range, and it's even cheaper than the Essential. The Simba Premium Foam is the only non-hybrid in the range (i.e. there's no springs here). If you're shopping in the Simba Amazon store (opens in new tab) Amazon, there are more budget-friendly foam-only Simbas in the range too. 

This Simba sale is an excellent price drop on some outstanding mattresses, but you could also check our dedicated Simba discount codes page to see if there are any vouchers that would work for what you want to buy, too.

Only available at Amazon, the Simba Comfort is a foam-only mattress with a bargain price tag. We haven't had a chance to test this one out, but it's designed to regulate temperature like its pricier siblings, and the base is zoned for custom support where you need it.

While you're upgrading your sleep setup, you should be aware that Simba also makes some excellent accessories, including the Simba Hybrid duvet. If you're not sold on a Simba yet, see what other brands are doing in our roundup of the best cheap mattress deals. 

Nervous about buying a mattress online? You don't need to be – all Simba mattresses come with a 100-night trial. That means you can properly test them from the comfort of your own home. If for any reason you don't absolutely love your mattress in that time, Simba will pick it up and give you a full refund. 

Which Simba mattress should I buy? 

Before you take advantage of your Simba discount code or deal, you'll need to choose which mattress is right for you. There are three models to choose from: the Hybrid, the Hybrid Pro and the Hybrid Luxe (the cheaper Hybrid Essential is no longer available). 

The Original is the cheapest and softest of the range. The Luxe is the priciest and most advanced, and perhaps the firmest (around 8 out of 10 on the firmness scale). The Pro is our favourite – it adds an extra top comfort layer compared to the Original, doubles the number of springs, and has an additional temperature-regulating wool comfort layer. See how the original mattress compares to competitors in our Otty Hybrid vs Simba Hybrid head-to-head.

  • Best-selling: Simba Hybrid Original - 25cm deep, 5 layers, up to 2,500 pocket springs 
  • Our favourite: Simba Hybrid Pro - 28cm deep, 7 layers, up to 5,000 pocket springs
  • Most advanced: Simba Hybrid Luxe – 31cm deep, 10 layers, up to 6,000 springs
  • Budget-friendly option: Simba Hybrid Essential –20cm deep, 4 layers, up to 1,500 springs

How good are Simba mattresses? What's the deal?

Simba Hybrid mattresses combine springs and foam to award-winning effect. Designed to support all body types and sleeping positions, a layer of patented conical pocket springs pivot in their pockets to adapt to your body shape while you sleep, giving you full body support. Meanwhile, Simba's precision-engineered foam moulds to you as the warmth from your body softens it; a 'Simbatex' cooling layer regulates your temperature; and a removable, machine-washable, hypoallergenic ‘breathe in, breathe out’ cover keeps allergies at bay. All this sits on top of a foam foundation that provides seven zones of support.

Both are bed-in-a-box (opens in new tab) mattresses, which means you buy them online and they’re delivered to your door in a conveniently sized box. Simba describes the range as the most advanced in the world, and the team are so confident you’ll love them, they offer a 100-day no-quibble trial: if you don’t love the mattress, just return it within that period for a refund.

Oh, and Simba also does bedding, too…

As you'll have gathered, Simba makes splendid duvets, pillows, sheets and mattress protectors, too. The Hybrid Duvet features a triple-layered design: a middle layer of 'Aerelle' material is sandwiched between a layer of temperature-regulating 'Stratos' and one of breathable cotton. The Aerelle is the real star: it's 100% recycled, and designed to draw heat away from the body, to keep you at the perfect temperature all night. Sizes range from single to super king.

The plump and tempting Simba pillow is also topped with cooling/warming miracle fabric Outlast. You can even add more of Simba's nano-tube filling if you want a plumper pillow, or remove it if you want it narrower. It's one of the best pillows around.

We'd always recommend throwing a mattress protector into the basket with any mattress purchase. These will guard against dirt and moisture, and keep your mattress fresh and clean for much longer. Simba's protector is made from super-soft, plant-derived Tencel fabric.

The new star of the show is the Orbit weighted blanket, filled with nano-beads to deliver a soothing, even pressure. These are becoming incredibly popular thanks to their ability to de-stress and even alleviate insomnia. Explore alternatives in our best weighted blanket guide. 

Want to transform even the most tired mattress? You could add the Simba mattress topper. Unlike many toppers, this isn't just a padded layer; it's like a mini-mattress in itself. It includes a breathable sleep surface, 2,500 pocket springs, a cooling comfort layer, and a dense base. 

Simba mattress Black Friday deals: what you need to know

The Simba Black Friday 2021 sale launched on 14 November ran until midnight on 29 November (that's Cyber Monday). It knocked 45% off everything, including the full mattress range, making it the best Simba discount of 2021. 

The pricing for the Simba Hybrid original for Black Friday 2021 was as follows: Single £356.95 (RRP £649), Double £483.45 (RRP £879), King £549.45 (RRP £999). It also beat 2020's Simba Black Friday sale, where there was 35% off all mattresses. 

Deals of 30-35% off have been a regular occurrence in 2021, but anything above that is much rarer. In the run-up to Black Friday, Simba ramped things up by offering 40% off in October, and 41% off in early November, before unleashing its full Black Friday sale half-way through the month.

Does Simba do Amazon Prime Day deals?

Yes indeed it does. Simba's Amazon range (opens in new tab) includes the mattresses you'll find at Simba directly, but also some cheaper alternatives, including a more basic Simba Hybrid Essential, and a selection of memory foam-only mattresses. 

In the 2022 sale, there were decent price drops across most of the range. The original Hybrid got 45% off all sizes (Double £549.45), while the Essential in Single and Double sizes got up to 45% off (Double £455.95). The Hybrid Luxe was only 35% off at Amazon (Double £1,264.45). If you went to Simba direct, there was a blanket 40% off all these models, so in some cases you were better off shopping at Amazon, which is a bit unusual. Of the foam models, the Simba Premium Foam mattress got a 35% discount (matched at Simba), as did the Simba Comfort (not sold by the brand direct). 

The biggest discounts for 2021, by percentage, were on the models that are outside of the core range. Amazon knocked a blanket 40% off its memory foam only models, as well as the Essential Hybrid. 

Where things got more interesting is with the core range – there was 37% off the Hybrid Pro – the biggest discount we have seen on that model anywhere, beating 2020's Black Friday deal of 35% off. There was also 37% off the Simba Hybrid Original, which matches the best price we've seen on that model. The Hybrid Luxe got 35% off, but only the King and Super King sizes, which wasn't especially notable and matched what you could get if you bought from Simba direct. 

In 2020, APD was a little unusual, as it was pushed right back to October. Nevertheless, we saw an excellent Simba discount, with the Simba Hybrid Essential dropping to almost half price (49% off). In 2019, the Simba Hybrid mattress received a 35% discount for 24 hours over Amazon Prime Day.

When else can I grab a Simba mattress deal?

Good question. We tend to see decent discounts in the run up to Christmas and we expect to see some very good Simba mattress deals in the January sales in early 2020 too.

There are also sometimes good price cuts in March, which is when retailers often look to clear older stock. And we saw some additional discounts during the summer sales too. In short: there's usually a saving to be made somewhere...
