The Best Mattress Reviews, Comparisons and Coupons

What Would You Like To Know?

Over the past few years, my husband and I have slept on and researched the leading mattresses sold online and shipped directly to your home, sometimes called a bed-in-a-box or an online mattress.

Along the way, we’ve learned a lot about the differences between Casper, Saatva, Leesa, PurpleLoom & Leaf, Bear, Nest Bedding, Helix and others.

Everything we learned is documented on this website in the form of mattress reviews and comparisons, where we score & rate the leading brands on the 13 features you should care about most when buying any mattress online.

My #1 goal with this website is to help you make a rational / fact-based decision – in 10 minutes or less.


The Benefits Of Buying a Mattress Online

The #1 benefit is that you save a LOT of money.  Like, 30-50% less than a comparable store-bought brand.

Tuft And Needle, one of the newer companies in the market, put together the following comparison chart that explains why online mattresses cost so much less.

As you can see, selling mattresses online direct from the factory eliminates a lot of markup and middlemen, which cuts a lot of cost out of a mattress:

Courtesy: Tuft and Needle

This is why mattresses sold online typically sell for 30-50% less than comparable store-bought mattresses.

Other benefits of buying a mattress online include the 100-night risk-free in-home trial, the ability to use websites like this one to compare your choices online, and a growing selection of products that cater to all sorts of special needs, like Bear Mattress (for athletes) and Helix Sleep (custom-fit).

The online mattress movement is having a huge impact on the traditional mattress industry, driving prices down and quality up.

Even Sealy and Tempurpedic have online stores, now.

The Downside (Kinda)

The downside to buying a mattress online is that you can’t sit on it before placing your order.

To eliminate this concern, almost every online mattress company offers a 100-night no risk free trial. If you decide you don’t want the mattress, most companies will pick the mattress up from your home – and you pay nothing.

Think about it: 100 nights is more than enough time to decide if a mattress works for you.

Buying A Mattress Online Isn’t As Easy As It Used To Be

Three years ago, buying an online mattress was an easy choice, because there were only a few brands to choose from.

Today, there are more than 20 companies selling mattresses online

This makes shopping for a mattress online a time-consuming process.

The goal of this website is to help you find the right mattress for your sleeping style and budget in 10 minutes or less.

And, of course, I want to save you beaucoup bucks.


What’s On This Site

You’ll find three things on this site:

1. Online Mattress Comparisons

On this site, you’ll find Mattress Comparison Tables for 9 different sleeping styles & types of mattress.

In each table, I rate and compare the best mattresses on the 13 features to consider before buying a mattress online.

See My Mattress Comparison Tables 

 

2. In-Depth Mattress Reviews

Each mattress review on this site is a 10-minute deep-dive into one best-selling mattress.

In each review, I cover the following points in some depth:

  • sleep experience
  • firmness
  • sinkage and motion transfer
  • technology, materials and construction
  • social impact
  • organic & VOC certifications
  • off-gassing
  • shipping options
  • delivery, unboxing and setup
  • platform suggestions
  • return policy
  • warranty
  • price
  • coupons
  • and more

If you have a question about a mattress or how it compares to another, please leave me a comment at the bottom of a review.

3. Mattress Coupons

What Is an Online Mattress?

Best mattress reviews - casper mattress

An “online mattress” is a memory foam mattress, latex mattress or innerspring mattress that is:

  1. sold mostly or exclusively online
  2. shipped direct from the manufacturer to your home, and
  3. not usually available in stores.

A lot of people buy mattresses online today. Over $4 billion were sold online in 2014.

As a result, there are many more direct-to-consumer mattress companies today than only a few years ago: more than 50 mattress companies sell exclusively online, with more on the way.

Mattress Comparison Tables

To simplify your shopping, we’ve created ten mattress comparison tables, below.

Each table lists the best mattresses for a given mattress type (memory foam, latex or innerspring), sleeping style (back, stomach or side) or unique need.

For each mattress we provide information on the features that matter when buying a mattress online.

If you have any suggestions, please leave me a comment using our contact page.

I hope this information saves you a lot of time – and money.

Happy shopping!

Best Innerspring Mattresses

Best Innerspring Mattresses

The online mattresses listed below use a full innerspring, coil-on-coil or hybrid (coil+foam) construction.

Innerspring mattresses typically last longer than foam mattresses and carry longer warranties.

Shipping charges may apply, because innerspring mattresses can’t be compressed for shipment.

Best for Stomach Sleepers

Best Mattress For Stomach-Sleepers

A firm or medium-firm mattress will better support a stomach-sleeper.

Heavy or big-breasted stomach-sleepers may also prefer a memory foam mattress, because it conforms and cradles the body more.

Best Mattress For Couples

Minimizing motion transfer means there will be fewer interruptions at night from a fidgety partner. Mattresses that use insulated coils & latex foam in their top layer do the best job of insulating against motion transfer.

Best Mattresses for Athletes

Best Mattress For Athletes

Excellent heat transfer is important for active people, due to their higher metabolism. Features that help include gel tops, gel-infused foam and breathable, wickable fabric on the cover and on the top.

Athletic people tend to prefer a firmer mattress, as well.

Buying Tips

Now that you have a short list of mattresses, let’s talk about some of the things to you should consider before you place that order.

First Tip: Don’t Worry About Buying Online!

Best mattress reviews - order form online

Trust me: you have nothing to fear when buying a mattress online.

In fact, I’ve learned that shopping online is the smartest way to buy a mattress. 

Because you will save money and be happier with your final purchase, in the end.

After all, you can’t learn much about a mattress by sitting on it for 10 minutes in a busy store – with some high-pressure sales guy waiting for a check.

But, when you sleep on a mattress in your own bedroom for 100 nights, you learn everything you need to know. Enough to write a mattress review!

 

The Company Behind The Mattress

This is one of those important but silent choices you may end up kicking yourself over, a few years down the line.

The reality of the online mattress market today is that most of the companies that sell them are startups, with a very short history.  Often, their products have been in the market for less than 3 years.

That’s just not enough time to know whether a mattress will stand the test of time – or the company that makes it.

I’m NOT saying startups can’t make a high-quality, durable mattress! Just that until more time passes, you really can’t know.

So if you’re down to a choice between two companies, I’d go with the more established one. Just to be safe.

Return Policies: The Finer Details

In general, all of the companies selling online mattresses DO stand behind their return policies. There are very few complaints online about people getting a bait-and-switch from any of the companies profiled on this site.

That said, the companies’ return policies differ in a ways that might be important to you. The most important differences include:

  • minimum trial period: several manufacturers require you to test their mattress for a minimum of 30 days before attempting to return it.
  • mattress return pickup: if you decide to return your mattress, some companies offer white glove service where one of their employees will remove the mattress from your home without you lifting a finger; others ask that you do some of the work.
  • return of accessories: be careful when ordering mattress platforms, bedding and accessories with your mattress, because these items may not be return-able with your mattress under the same generous 100-night policy.

Warranties

In general, all online mattress companies offer at least a 10-year workmanship/defect warranty.

That said, mattress warranties can differ dramatically in terms of the financial protection they provide over the life of your mattress.

For example,  make sure you understand where your manufacturer stands on these warranty features:

  • transferable warranty: is the warranty transferrable to a new owner, or not?
  • pro-rated replacement cost:  does the value of the warranty decline over time? what % of the replacement cost does the manufacturer require you to pay after 3, 5 or 7 years?
  • sinkage: some mattress manufacturers warranty that their mattress will not permanently deform or sink more than 1″ or 2″, or you get a replacement or your money back.  Others are silent on this issue.  You know which one to choose.

Shipping Charges

Be aware that a mattress delivered to your home can incur three (3) potential shipping charges:

  1.  the original shipment to your home.  This charge is usually very clear. Most companies don’t charge for shipping to your home, and the ones that do tell you what that charge is before you place your order.
  2. returns: Make sure you understand whether or not the company will charge you for shipping a returned mattress back to the factory
  3. replacements: If you decide to replace your mattress due to a defect or the wrong comfort level, then the replacement mattress has to be shipped to your home, too.  This also costs money.  Read the terms to understand who pays.

Shipping costs are typically $40-100 each way, depending on the size and construction of your mattress.

It makes sense to understand the above before placing that order.
