Helix has already launched its early access Memorial Day sale, with 30% off mattresses and 25% off the Helix Plush Mattress Topper. But you'll have to be quick — some sizes have already sold out. 

This 25% off saving mean you can buy a Cal king size Helix's plush mattress topper for just $104.30 (was $139). Introducing a quality mattress topper to your sleep set up can provide plenty of comfort, support and pressure relief for a fraction of the cost of  one of the years best mattresses. 

Helix is the brand behind our best mattress for side sleepers, the Midnight Luxe, and has so far rolled out some of the best Memorial Day mattress sales. However, if you're looking to gain the same pressure relieving support as the Luxe without buying a brand new bed, the plush mattress topper is the answer, giving your firm mattress an instant refresh. But you'll need to be quick if you want to snap on up thought - the topper is currently only available in Twin XL, Full and California King sizes.

Are mattress toppers worth buying?

Mattress toppers can be a great investment if you're looking to change the 'feel' of your bed. There are options that will allow you to either firm up or soften the feel of your mattress, with toppers being particularly useful to help break in a new mattress that might feel a little firmer than you'd like.

Mattress toppers can help to relieve pressure points, or add a plush layer of comfort to cradle the body. They are also often made with cooling materials, meaning they can be a godsend for hot sleepers. And, if your mattress is getting older but still has a few years left in it, a high-quality mattress topper can help to prolong its life even further. 

A topper isn't a miracle worker though. It's not going to fix a mattress that's sagging and worn-out, and certainly won't cure a mattress with springs sticking out of it. Many are made out of memory foam, which can make a bed hot and they can be costly if you want to invest in a decent one. However, overall mattress toppers have a number of uses that can make them a worthwhile investment.

What Jo doesn't know about a boxed mattress isn't worth knowing, so naturally we tasked her with producing a series of features for Tom's Guide looking at all aspects of mattresses, from how to pick between latex and memory foam (it's a tricky one), to the seven mistakes people make when buying a mattress for the first time. When testing the DreamCloud Luxury Hybrid for Tom's Guide, Jo said: "I loved the back support and pressure relief it offered. Plus, it looks far more expensive than it is."
