Popular American mattress brand Helix has launched its early access Labor Day sale, with the usual mixture of discounts and free gifts to choose between. The headline offer is you can save up to $350 on a Helix mattress, and you'll get two free Dream pillows added to your order. But there are a number of discounts available, depending on how much you spend in your quest for the best mattress

For the maximum $350 saving, you'll need to spend $2,950 or more - by adding a bed base or bedding to your mattress order, for example, and using code: LDSALE350 at checkout. But there's still $100 off the cheapest Helix mattresses too. You need to spend $600 or more to activate this discount, and use Helix discount code: LDSALE100.

Helix makes a range of mattresses, but we think the best mattress for side sleepers is the Midnight – head to our Helix Midnight mattress review to find out more. That model now starts from $699 for a twin size, down from $799. 

The Labor Day sales are a good time to buy a new mattress: prices tend to drop from their highest over the summer (before falling slightly again for Black Friday in November). Still, remember that this is an early access Labor Day mattress sale - the price is likely to go down by another $50 closer to the official holiday on September 5, if previous Helix mattress sales are anything to go by.

All Helix mattresses come with a 100-night risk-free trial, so you can make sure you have the right one by actually sleeping on it, rather than spending 15 minutes with it in a showroom. It can take up to three weeks to adjust to a new mattress, so you'll need to give it at least 21 nights before making a decision. (That's true for any new mattress.)

You'll also get a 10 or 15-year limited warranty included, depending on which mattress you buy, plus free delivery on all orders.
