With summer Ultimately, you might need a comfortable new place to bundle up in the colder months to come. You’re in luck because it’s a holiday weekend, it’s a good time to buy a new mattress. A lot of the base prices for our favorite mattresses have gone up over the past few months, but we still think these offers are solid.
All prices listed are for queen-size mattresses.

Our favorite mattress offers
The luxurious Helix is always our number one spot – it’s the only one that practically put our Critics Director, Jeffrey Van Camp, to sleep in a loud, bright room. Its cushioned top and medium firmness are suitable for side, back and stomach sleepers. Unfortunately, this luxury doesn’t come cheap, even at a reduced price.
Use code LDAY200 for $ 200 off $ 1,750 or more; LDAY150 if you spend $ 1,250 or more; or LDAY100 for $ 100 off $ 600 or more.
Use code LABORDAY2021 for 15 percent off. The Allswell Hybrid is insanely good, and not just good for being cheap, but really good. It looks expensive, and its individually wrapped springs prevent motion transfer.
We also like the Allswell Luxe Hybrid for $ 574 ($ 101 off), which has three additional layers of foam and a plush top cover; and the Supreme Hybrid for $ 837 ($ 148 off). The latter looks like a $ 2,000 mattress. We’ve seen all three at a discount, but think they’re still worth it.
More mattress offers (coils + foam)
Hybrid mattresses provide good support, with hundreds of individually wrapped springs sandwiched between layers of foam. Their springs give them the best of both worlds, with the airflow and bounce of traditional spring mattresses and the comfort of memory foam.
The Leesa Hybrid is our second, and although it is not like luxury than the Helix, we think it’s one of the best on the market. It has silky, diamond-like coverage and a soft yet firm feel that relieves pressure. It gently hugs your body, for a price.
This discount should automatically add to your cart, but use code LABORDAY25 if it doesn’t. We’ve seen this one at 30% off, but it’s still a good deal if you want a firmer mattress. (Van Camp said he would go the medium next time around rather than the firmer option.)
Use code LDAY400 at checkout. This price is the same sale we usually see, however, the base price has increased. Birch is an eco-friendly mattress made by Helix, the company behind our favorite mattress. It is made of natural latex and wool, and contains no foams or polyurethane chemicals.
Casper is well known and his hybrid mattress is awesome. It is more comfortable than the brand’s all-foam one; the coils give it more spring, airflow and support. We think there are better options out there, but if you’re not sure what to buy, get this. He rarely disappoints
This luxury mattress is an honorable mention. It has a very comfortable thick pillow top, similar to the Helix Midnight Luxe and the Allswell Supreme.
All-foam mattress offers
Most bed-in-a-box mattresses are made up of several layers of memory foam, in a variety of densities and consistencies. They tend to provide a better body contour, but can look too dark or not supportive if not well designed.
We prefer hybrid mattresses, but the following all-foam versions are all good options.
