The newest generation of memory foam mattresses are only available online, with a few exceptions. This practice cuts down overhead, makes ordering a new mattress simple and fast, and results in affordable pricing. The only issue is that people do not have the opportunity to try out the mattress before buying one. More people can afford them, they just have no idea of the firmness and feel of the product.
No Blind Ordering
A little research will provide information that is accurate and as objective as possible. Instead of first seeking brand name official websites, it is wise to browse a few blog sites and review sites dedicated to mattresses to glean as much detail as you can. When a coworker recommends a certain brand and ends with saying…”but feel free to check my source“, plan on doing exactly that.
Depending on the blog, articles, summaries, and side by side comparisons of mattresses tend to be very accurate. Read the terms and conditions to discover if the site has any affiliations, just to be aware when reading the posts. An affiliation does not mean the site operator sells specific mattresses. It simply means that when customers use a link provided on the blog site to get to an official brand website, a small fee is sent to the blogger. That is how blogs remain current and offer discounts.
Independent review sites are helpful as long as people take the time to notice how long the reviewer has been using the mattress. A review written by someone who has slept on the mattress for one night will not provide enough information. People who have been sleeping on it for two weeks or more typically indicate what they like about the mattress, and what may be considered a weak spot.
In an effort to ease the minds of customers who may be hesitant to purchase a mattress they have not tried, companies offer sleep trials. Customers can sleep on the mattress for thirty, sixty, or one-hundred nights to determine if it suits their needs. At the end of the sleep trial period, those who are not satisfied can request a refund. The times and compensation differs so be sure the details of the trial is understood before buying an online mattress.
