Summer may already be halfway over, but the silver lining is that Labor Day is not far off. Although formally celebrated as a day of rest for workers, Labor Day is also a great time to score major deals, especially on furniture and home staples. Included in the stellar markdowns? Tons of incredible mattresses for upgrading your sleep game.
“While companies offer discounts throughout the year, major holiday weekends – like Labor Day — are ideal for competitive offers,” says Good Housekeeping Executive Textiles Director Lexie Sachs. “If you wait until after the long weekend, you may not see the same types of savings until the next shopping holiday.”
And for anyone eager to get in on the action, this year’s Labor Day mattress sales are starting earlier than ever. Amazon, Bear and Helix have already started their Labor Day promotions, with savings as high as 42% off right now on select mattress styles.
Tips for buying a mattress on Labor Day:
Steep deals on mattresses can go lightning fast, meaning you’ll want to act quickly, but make sure to do your research and read the fine print before making a purchase. This will ensure you have no regrets later!
- Focus on return policies over warranties. “Lengthy warranties may sound appealing, but they may not cover damages like sagging, indents and signs of regular wear and tear,” Sachs says. “Instead, check the trial periods to see if you are covered by an any-reason return policy, even if the mattress simply isn’t a good fit.”
- Check shipping speeds and delivery options. Consider how quickly you’ll need to get your mattress home and the way you prefer it to be delivered. “Some mattresses are ready to go and can arrive within days, while others are made to order and can take several weeks, if not more,” Sachs explains. “Also to note is whether the mattress will ship in a box for DIY set up, which can be a contact-free and convenient option for those that don’t want to deal with the hassle of coordinating a delivery, or includes white-glove delivery, which means the brand will set up the mattress for you and haul away your old one.” (To note, pricier mattresses typically come with complimentary white-glove delivery, but occasionally, when the brand offers a choice between the two delivery options, the white-glove service will cost you extra.)

When do Labor Day sales start in 2022?
Labor Day always falls on the first Monday in September. This year, it will take place on September 5 and the holiday weekend will begin Friday, September 2. Accordingly Good Housekeeping Institute’s deputy editor Jessica Teich, “the steepest savings will likely happen the week leading up to Labor Day, but retailers will start holding end-of-summer sales as early as August 1,” she says. “Expect to see the biggest discounts September 1 through September.”
Do mattresses go on sale for Labor Day?
Labor Day is a great time to save on beauty, clothing and home decor, but the largest discounts typically occur on big ticket items like home appliances and, yes, mattresses. “In general, holiday weekends are the best time to buy a mattress,” Sachs says. “You may not be able to snag these types of mattress deals again until Black Friday, so if you’re currently in the market for a new mattress, then it’s worth buying over Labor Day Weekend.”
Who has the best Labor Day mattress sale?
Many of this year’s Labor Day mattress sales are still under wraps. However, Bear, Helix and Amazon have already started rolling out their LDW sales, offering up to 42% off select styles. Last year, we also saw steep markdowns on mattresses by Casper, Tuft & Needle and Saatva (which were up to $200 off on the brand’s DTC site).
