Shopping For a Mattress Doesn't Have To Be a Bumpy Ride

I recently sat down with Opinion Corp’s Pissed Consumer to ask what the feedback has been for consumers mattress shopping. Based on customer feedback, I’ve come up with the nuts and bolts every consumer needs to know when buying a mattress. I’ve made my own costly mistakes in the mattress department.

  1. All of the major brands of mattress companies put different names on the same mattresses in different mattress stores. This is done so you won’t be able to compare prices when shopping for a mattress. Ask for a spec sheet to compare prices for the same mattress from the same manufacturer.
     
  2. Ask for a short trial period. Many mattress companies say their mattresses compare to a well-known brand, Tempurpedic. You need to really try out the mattress for a night or two to make sure it meets your comfort needs.
