Comparison shopping for a mattress can help you make the best choice and feel confident in your decision. As you’re shopping, take time to really consider each mattress type – both the feel and the construction – versus simply comparing one brand to another.
- Look inside. Ask the salesperson if they can show you illustrated or actual cutaways of the interior of the various mattress and foundation choices. Seeing how each mattress is made can help you understand the differences.
- Consider service. Compare store services such as delivery, financing and removal of your old mattress.
- Weigh your investment. Consider the cost-per-day value of a mattress (you‘ll be on it 6-8 hours each day for about seven years) and buy the best you can afford. That is 1/3 of your life!
- Shop smart. Look for the best value, not the lowest price. Good deals are out there, but there is a direct relationship in the price of a mattress to its quality, so shop around and find the best quality sleep set that makes sense for you.
