LOS ANGELES, Nov. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Black Friday is eponymous with shopping and discounts, earning the title of busiest shopping day of the year.

Bed blog The Best Mattress covers this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers in their latest article, "2013 Black Friday & Cyber Monday Mattress Sale Trends", giving shoppers a preview of what to expect in terms of deals and tips for choosing the best bed.
The article opens with a discussion on how sales on the holidays differ, and on the growing consumer trend towards shopping online for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, with increases last year of 24% and 33% based on an article from Mashable.
