There are always Helix mattress sales and deals to be found, and right now there's 25% off sitewide for Labor Day, with two free pillows with every mattress purchase. This an improvement on this brand's typical offer, and the matches the lowest prices we ever see on these mattresses. In short, it's well worth taking advantage of, and one of the best Labor Day mattress sales we've spotted. 

Helix makes a wide range of mattresses to suit every sleep position and firmness preference, but our favorite of the bunch is the Helix Midnight. We rate this the very best mattress for side sleepers thanks to a softer sleep surface that cushions your hips and shoulders in this position. Read more about it in our Helix Midnight mattress review

If you're not a side sleeper or prefer something firmer, there will be another option for you. The pricing is the same across all 'standard' models, all the 'Luxe' models, and all the 'Elite' models, which makes things straightforward in terms of budgeting. Alternatively, you can consult our best mattress guide for our best-reviewed models from a range of brands. Read on for more info on the Helix mattress sales and deals available to shop right now.

The best Helix mattress sales to shop now

Helix Midnight Mattress:  was 

Helix Midnight Mattress: was $936 now from $702 + 2 free pillows at Helix
25% off!
The Helix Midnight's hybrid design with a mix of foam and coils makes it a top bed-in-a-box, and in our Helix Midnight mattress review we found it cradled our testers' joints to provide dreamy comfort in a side sleeper position. The current sale knocks 25% off and throws in two pillows for free. With this offer, a queen size is $999, which matches the lowest price we've even seen on this model – it was last this cheap on Black Friday 2022. There's free US shipping and a 100-night trial.

Helix Midnight Luxe: was

Helix Midnight Luxe: was $1,373.80 now from $1,030.30
If you fancy something slightly more luxurious than the Midnight, this is the Luxe version. It has extra-firm coils in the central third to support the lumbar, and adds a quilted pillow top. There's the same medium feel, aimed at cushioning side sleepers' joints. With 25% off, a queen size costs $1,780. Get a feel for this mattress in our Midnight Luxe hands-on review.

Helix Moonlight mattress: was

Helix Moonlight mattress: was $936 now from $702 + free pillows
25% off!
If you're in the market for a soft mattress, check out the Moonlight. There's no memory foam here, but instead a latex-foam hybrid alternative known as 'Dynamic foam'. It's designed to relieve pressure and contour to your body. Helix rates it as 2 or 3 out of 10 in terms of firmness, although in our tests we found it wasn't quite as ridiculously squishy as that (we'd say maybe a 4 or 5). The brand promises even support and the "perfect loft". With 25% off and an MSRP drop, a queen size has dropped to under $1,000 for the first time since Black Friday (it's $999). 

Helix Midnight Elite: was from

Helix Midnight Elite: was from $2,498.80 now from $1,874
For the ultimate in luxury, check out the Elite range. This premium, 16-inch tall mattress includes the GlacioTex cooling cover as standard (an extra on the other two models), and has a more complex design, with an upper section made from layers of mini-coils and foams. Because it's a Midnight model, Helix still promises a medium feel and memory foam cushioning specifically geared towards side-sleepers. With 25% off, a queen size costs $2,811.60. If you want something bouncier, softer or firmer, look elsewhere in the Elite range – all have the same pricing structure and the same discount. 

Helix Twilight Mattress: was

Helix Twilight Mattress: was $936 now from $702 + free pillows
25% off!
If your preference is for a firmer mattress, take a look at the Helix Twilight. The design is similar to the Midnight, with the same contouring memory foam and wrapper coils, but this time the sleep feel is firmer. In the current Helix mattress sale, and thanks to that MSRP drop, a queen costs $999, matching the lowest price we've recorded on this mattress. 

Helix Sunset Mattress: was

Helix Sunset Mattress: was $936 now from $702 + free pillows
25% off!
If you like a plush mattress, check out the Sunset. This is Helix's soft side-sleeper mattress, with soothing memory foam and a sink-in feel. We'd recommend this to lightweight side sleeper only – back / stomach sleepers and heavier bodies should opt for something firmer for proper spinal support. In the current Helix mattress sale, a queen costs $999. 

The Helix Midnight is a great choice for side sleepers – head to our in-depth Helix Midnight mattress review to find out why. Helix produces some of the best mattresses in a box in general so no matter which one you go for you really can't go wrong.

For peace of mind, Helix offers a 100-night risk-free trial so you can test the mattress at home to ensure it really is the best choice for you. If you don't completely love it, you'll get a full refund. Read on now for more info on the best Helix mattress prices, deals and discounts.

Helix mattress price: how much do they cost?

How much your Helix mattress will cost depends on which tier of luxury you go for. Whichever model you pick, you can expect a Helix mattress sale that knocks at least 20% off MSRP

The basic Helix mattress collection sits in the mid-range market. Official prices start at $936 for a twin and go up to $1,749. There's never less than 20% off. 

For anyone looking for more back support and all-over body comfort, the Helix Luxe range is priced from $1,374 to $2,874, with a queen coming in at $2,374. Again, expect a minimum of 20% off those prices, but regardless of that it's still in the premium price bracket. 

In 2023, Helix added a more luxurious tier of mattresses – the Elite range. At MSRP, prices for these range from $2,286 to $4,124 (again expect 20% or more off). 

There’s also the Helix Plus mattress, designed to be one of the best mattresses for heavier bodies. That one costs from $811 to $1,811 at full MSRP. 

Which Helix mattress should you choose?

Helix's two main mattress ranges – Helix Standard and Helix Luxe are split into three different firmness options: soft, medium and firm. Each is available in two versions, depending on your preferred sleeping position. One is tailored for side sleepers; the other for back and stomach sleepers. Once you know this, it's very easy to choose the right Helix mattress. 

However, you can also take the Helix Sleep Quiz. This will match you with the right mattress in just a few minutes, based on the answers to some questions about your age, height, sleeping preferences and so on. (If you share a bed, you can fill in your partner's details too.)

Alternatively, if you have a higher body weight or you're tall, then consider the Helix Plus. This Helix mattress has an extra layer of high density foam to provide maximum support. 

Finally, if you're looking for an all-natural organic mattress, head to sister brand Birch. In our Birch Natural mattress review, we were very impressed with the flagship option. It's Greenguard Gold and GOTS certified, which means it's eco-friendly, sustainably sourced, and free from chemicals. You'll find today's best Helix mattress prices for the entire collection below...

1. Helix Midnight mattress deals

The most popular Helix mattress - and it comes with two free pillows

Sizes: Twin to Cal King | Depth: 12 inches | Filing: Memory foam | Comfort: Medium | Trial: 100 night | Guarantee: 10 years

Great for side sleepers
Memory foam and coils
Designed to be breathable
Made in the USA
Prone to some irregular stitching
Very heavy so get help to set it up

The Helix Midnight mattress is designed for side sleepers and those who move around in the night. It's got a medium feel - not too firm or soft - which makes it Helix's most popular mattress. 

Memory foam is ideal for providing comfort and pressure relief, but it can be known to overheat in the night. Helix's breathable cover is designed to save you sweaty nights by increasing airflow, so hot sleepers can still get the advantages of memory foam with the Midnight mattress. 

For more cooling options, see our best cooling mattress guide. To learn more about this model, read our Helix Midnight mattress review.

It's more expensive on average than a Helix mattress, but the Helix Plus is still a reasonably priced mattress, and it's covered by a 15 year warranty, which means you can trust its durability.

With a cover of 100% organic cotton and a wool comfort layer, the all-natural materials are a great selling point for the eco-conscious. This mattress doesn't skip out on comfort, though.

5. Helix Sunset mattress deals

The softest Helix mattress on offer

Sizes: Twin to Cal King | Depth: 12 inches | Filing: Memory foam | Comfort: Soft | Trial: 100 night | Guarantee: 10 years

Comfy, soft finish
Great edge support
No nasty chemicals
Made in the USA
Not for back or front sleepers

Think the Helix Midnight, only softer. The Helix Sunset is a plush mattress that promises marshmallow softness (their word) but with the same support for side sleepers and those who toss and turn. 

Edge support is a major concern for many soft mattresses, but the Helix Sunset has wrapped coils that create a reinforced edge to keep you centered when you're sleeping. There's also the same ten year warranty and 100-night trial as other Helix mattresses.

6. Helix Twilight mattress deals

The firmest Helix mattress on sale

Sizes: Twin to Cal King | Depth: 12 inches | Filing: Memory foam | Comfort: Firm | Trial: 100 night | Guarantee: 10 years

Designed to stay cool
Firm, supportive finish
Wrapped coils cradle your body
Good for couples
Might not be ideal for side sleepingw

We're trying our hardest to avoid Twilight references here... but like a vampire, the Helix Twilight mattress guarantees to always be cool to touch. That's because this mattress also offers a firm feel and solid construction. Unlike softer mattresses, a firm finish is more likely to release body heat through the night. You're not sinking into its foam layer, and so it's not retaining your body heat. It's also suitable for all body types. 

A special memory foam comfort layer guarantees a firm layer of support, and another bottom foam layer adds base support and extra durability. The Helix Twilight mattress has individually wrapped coils that limit motion transfer, making this a great choice for couples. 

Do I need a Helix mattress promo code?

Many of the best Helix deals will be automatically applied on-site, but Helix also uses promo codes to unlock some of its sale prices. To find the best Helix mattress price you should always check that you're not missing out on any extra promo codes. You can find any Helix promo codes here on this page. 

Helix runs discounts and promo codes across its entire line of mattresses, including the Luxe range, the Plus range, and the Helix Birch. Because some of the Helix mattresses are already so affordable though, most deals and discounts work incrementally. That means that as you spend more in a Helix sale, you'll also save more.

Helix Black Friday and Cyber Monday mattress sales: what you need to know

Helix kicked off its official 2022 Black Friday sale a week before the big day. We saw the tiered discount system favored by this brand, but the amounts you could save went up. There's $150 off purchases of $600+, $250 off purchases of $1,249+, $300 off purchases of $1,700+, $350 off purchases of $2,550+, $400 off purchases of $2,700+, and $450 off purchases of $2,950 or more. As ever, you'll got free pillows thrown in with your mattress purchase. The offer rolled over into this brand's Cyber Monday mattress deal, but during the following week the evergreen offer kicked back in (under the name 'Cyber deal'. 

Was it a good Black Friday deal? Yes. The discounts were bigger than we usually see from Helix, and it's better than previous Black Friday offers too. 

With those discounts, here's the pricing for the Helix Midnight:

  • Twin: $699 (MSRP $849)
  • Full: $949 (MSRP $1,099)
  • Queen: $999 (MSRP $1,249)
  • King: $1,299 (MSRP $1,549)

That sale was preceded by an 'Black Friday Early Access sale', which went live at the start of November 2022. That had lower discounts: $100 off orders $600 or over, with the discounts rising incrementally to $350 off when you spend $2,950 or more. That was still a good sale, matching what we saw on Memorial Day. 

We were impressed with this year's discounts, because for the previous three years, we've seen the same Helix Black Friday deal – up to $200 off mattresses plus two free pillows ($100 on any mattress, $150 of orders worth $1,250 or more, and $200 off orders worth $1,750 or more). These rolled over into Cyber Monday.
