For many people, buying a new mattress may seem like a daunting task. However, in this day and age, it really isn’t much harder than shopping for small appliances such as a coffee maker or juicer. This is purely because retailers have made the process of buying online so quick and easy, it makes no sense to travel to a showroom that may be many miles away. A local showroom may have limited or low-end stock, and a high-end mattress brand may only have a showroom in your nearest city. Therefore, it makes sense to take advantage of online shopping, having a mattress delivered right to your door.
It often works out cheaper to buy from an online company too, simply because there are most probably fewer overheads to pay, which are reflected in terms of bigger discounts to the customer.
You may be thinking that you’d like to feel the mattress, lay on it, sit on it, and perhaps inspect it in many ways before you buy. Well, in fact, you can still do this once your mattress has arrived, and what’s more is that you’ll most likely get a lengthy trial period to test out your product. For example, once your mattress arrives, you can begin using it, usually for up to 365 nights, and if within this period you’re not satisfied for whatever reason, simply contact the manufacturer and let them know. They’ll usually arrange for a refund or exchange with no questions asked.
How We Conduct Reviews
Mattress reviews and comparisons from sites like ours allows you to gauge what may work best for you. We compare many variables such as firmness levels, motion isolation properties, in-home trials, and warranty periods.
Our mattress reviews are based on data collected and generated from different methods. A majority of our reviews and ratings are based on products that have been sent to us from manufacturers who would like their products to be featured on our site. We conduct and write up unbiased reviews on these mattresses, pillows, and beds. We do not receive payment from these companies to feature their products, however, if we decide to feature the review on our site we often make small commissions if a consumer decides to purchase one using our affiliate link or coupon code. This allows us to run and maintain the website, offering our advice and expertise back to our readers.
