how to shop for a mattress

Hidden Fees

Sometimes shopping offline can be stressful. Pushy salespeople can make you feel awkward, and hidden fees can pop up as you're closing the sale. Be sure to ask up front about the cost of delivery, removal, applicable taxes, and any other cost that will affect the final price. Keep those fees in mind while comparing our prices to those you've found offline. With free delivery on everything we sell, you're sure to save!

Unknown Brands

You've seen the ads featuring mattresses for amazingly low prices. If they seem too good to be true, they probably are. If you look at the tag, you'll find that these mattresses are made by a company you don't recognize. Be wary of no name mattresses. There's no way to tell exactly what their mattresses are made of or the type of construction they've undergone. Name brands have extensive experience in building quality mattresses. You spend a third of your life sleeping. Spend your nights on a mattress you can trust.
