Review: Online Mattress Companies… Are They Worth It?

With the boom of online purchases, having anything from diapers to fully cooked meals delivered to your door is just a few clicks away.

So, it is only natural that mattress companies pick up on the hype and sell exclusively online, hoping you will give their products a chance with the ease of never stepping foot in one of those awkward stores.

A few years ago, we decided to purchase a new mattress and gave one of these young, antisocial, busy-bee friendly companies a try.

At the time, there weren’t nearly as many options as you can find today. Thus, I will not only tell you our experience purchasing a mattress online, but I’ll also break down the pricing structure and benefit of several top mattress companies where you shop online and they deliver directly to your door. All for your convenience. Great, right?

*note, I am not paid to advertise for these companies. I am here to inform you of our experience and present to you the options out there for your knowledge. ­čÖé

Our Experience with Tuft and Needle

We bought our mattress from Tuft and Needle 3 years ago.

As a couple, we couldn’t decide what type of mattress to purchase and we dreaded going to those hamster cages of mattress stores where you awkwardly lay on different beds all while a sales associate tries to sell you an overpriced hunk of fabric and fiber.

After doing some research, we read about Tuft and Needle online with their 100 night trial period with free delivery and returns.

Picking out the mattress was pretty basic. Literally, you just choose the size you want. And that’s it. No box spring, no pillow top choices, no stiffness or softness choices.

Their mattresses are made of their “signature” foam that is supposedly┬áideal for all sleepers. Not to mention the fabric is heat wicking so keep you cool and comfortable all throughout the night.

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical but we decided to go ahead and orders ours and gave it a shot.

Delivery came quickly, 2-5 business days after purchase, and it was quite comical when the delivery man showed up at our door…

The mattress comes rolled up tightly in a tall and narrow box…Now imagine, the entire mattress of a king size bed…rolled…into a small box…

It. Was. Heavy.

The delivery guy practically dragged the box across my front yard, leaned against the pole to our porch and asked my husband what could possibly be so heavy in that box. When we told him it was a mattress he laughed…remember this was before online mattress stores was a big thing.

That day we dragged our box up to our room and opened our new mattress. It is actually pretty intriguing watching this tightly packed mattress expand to a full sized king bed.

So, the good stuff…did it work for us?

Well, my husband is a back sleeper and I am a side sleeper with constant hip pain.

The first few nights were…okay. But, it wasn’t “fluffy” enough for me. So we purchased a pillow top mattress cover off amazon.

 

Now, I love our mattress. Is it worth it purchasing a mattress online?

Yes!

Why you ask? Even after I had to purchase the pillow top cover, it is still a great deal. After three years, the mattress has held up very well…no low spots…no sagging…no box springs. The support is great and the price is better. Not to mention it comes with a 10 year warranty. Perfect.

  1. I usually buy my mattresses at Big Lots or Sam’s Club. My most recent mattress I got from Big Lot’s and it is a more premium model pillowtop that I got for $500. Both stores offer basic options for a queen starting around $200-$300 and nicer models for $400-$600.
