I posted this deal back in July and it seemed to help some people back then. I noticed gogroopie recently reintroduced the discount code until end of September, making them cheaper than wowcher or living social. Code 'EMMA10' is on their full details page.

I tried to unexpire my previous posting but couldn't seem to edit. I will add the link to the previous deal which has plenty of information and a link to a review of the mattress.

Whilst I focussed on king size as that was the first one we bought back in July, I've compared the current prices between wowcher, living social and gogroopie for various sizes. At time of posting:

  • Single - Gogroopie cheaper with voucher
  • Small double - Gogroopie cheaper with voucher
  • Double - all 3 are same price so check for highest cashback from quidco/topcashback
  • King - Gogroopie cheaper with voucher
  • Super King - all 3 are same price so check for highest cashback from quidco/topcashback

As for the mattress itself, we think it's great and good value for money. Hasn't been difficult to sleep on during the recent hot weather. It does feel soft sitting on it but lying down when weight is spread, it provides plenty of support. I would say that if you are after a firm mattress, this one will not be for you.

I buy a lot of things advertised on Hotukdeals so trying to return the favour and do my bit. Hope this is useful to some.

Are these actuslly any good. It's just a piece of foam, what's the return policy? What if I don't like it? Who is responsible for return postage? How does this compare to spring mattress?

I guess it's down to preference. In my experience, I have previously purchased the early memory foam mattress when they were new to the market. They were more foam than mattress! That is, you'd sink into them when lying down and they would take a few minutes to recover shape. On warmer nights, you would wake up sweating because the mattress wasn't very breathable. Since then, many years have passed and technology improved. The Emma mattress we have now does not resemble the old memory foam mattresses. If you haven't tried a memory foam mattress, you could visit a showroom. Some also offer trial periods. There are several other good name brands including Simba, Eve, Tempur, etc.. but you'll find prices are more dear.

I did not use the return policy as we kept the 2 mattresses we ordered but clicking through to the Ts@Cs, it's 14days. Extract from website: Mattresses & Bedding For hygiene reasons returns on any opened mattresses or bedding may not be accepted. Bedding items include duvets, pillows, mattress toppers etc.

I've included a link to a review and Emma's website. Emma is also a good name brand and claim the most awarded UK mattress in 2019. Admittedly this was for the Emma Original, king size £579 on their website. The Essential range is seen as a budget version advertised at a reduced cost of £478 for king size on their website.

Hope this helps.
eve/emma/otty/simba all pretty much the same - its just who spends more on marketing gets better reviews. better off going with an ikea mattress with 25 years no quibble warranty.

I thought I'd have a quick look into your comment. To compare like for like, I searched Ikea for memory foam matresses. They currently offer 2 makes, Malfors and Morgedal.

Malfors - ikea.com/gb/…78/
They don't offer king size. Closest is 140x200cm and costs £110. This looks like a very cheap quality topper. I would not advise buying this!

Morgedal - ikea.com/gb/…89/
This looks much better than the Malfors. King size is £229, same pricing point as Emma but Ikea are not known for making quality memory foam mattresses.

I also found this independent review on Ikea mattresses and makes for interesting reading. Both above mattresses are listed but not highly recommended. The point on overheating in the Morgedal doesn't really apply to Emma.

This is a hybrid so not exactly comparable. I would also be careful if a spring mattress is rolled for delivery! Something the independent reviewer picked up on.

thats a good point.
Be aware that this is different to the 'original' Emma mattress that the company advertise and sell. I think that this is the first model, which is the reason it is half the price of the standard 'original' model that Emma sell now.

Yes essential and original are different ranges but both made by Emma. I mentioned above that original is the mattress that has won the multiple awards and the essential is seen as a budget version which imo is good value for money. Not sure where you got the first model from.
Are they charging £19.99 to deliver a voucher code via email?

Not sure where you got that! You pay for the voucher not forgetting the discount code. You will then receive the voucher in email and in it, you click on a link to redeem the voucher. Next you enter delivery details and pay the £19.99 delivery charge.
I returned the Emma Essentials Mattress within 14 days as I could feel the bed slats beneath and it was really too soft. I wouldn’t recommend it. It would probably be fine for a guest bedroom.

Sorry to hear that. Whilst I agree it is soft to sit on as most weight is concentrated in a smallish area, when lying down the mattress gives plenty of support, so much so that I cannot feel the slats. I would like to think of myself as the average person but have put on a little extra weight recently! 😁
