    I learned the purple mattress company has this powder stuff that’s possibly poisonous to people. I say possibly cuz when the guy asked about it all he got was a threat to get sued.

    The one thing I've noticed when shopping for a mattress is that they are tailored to a specific store so you can't comparison shop. And they do that by changing one item in the manufacturing process. That way you won't be able to negotiate for a better price because it's not the exact mattress at another store. I've seen this happen for quite a few years and this practice makes it nearly impossible to negotiate for a better deal

    Of course mattresses are a rip off, it is really based on if you can tolerate the bedding, affordable and a case of "Pick your poison" but here is the kicker, the government is the reason why a lot of products are the way they are today so as a deli clerk I can not sell you meat that has been opened and loosely wrapped that has been sitting around for an entire month because would you want to eat roast beef that hasn't been touched for an entire month? Plus Purple the mattress company gotten fingers pointed at them for a mysterious powder that was found on their mattresses which the purple company simply sue anyone that mentions it, of course these lawsuits are quickly dropped because if it was taken to court then the judge would ask "wait, what is this powder?" and depending on the judge Purple can get legal investigations now of course purple much like some small time game developers block and delete negative reviews

    There's a conspiracy that mattress stores are used for money laundering, thats why there are so many of them with no customers in them 90% of the time.

    • TheMrAlexander

      This is accurate for my home town. Two mattress shops existed in a small town that never had any visitors. They were both shut down for being money laundering and smuggling fronts.

    So mattress stores mark their inventory up? What? How else will they pay rent, utilities, salaries, commissions, insurance, and pay for more inventory? Want a ripoff? Go get a fountain soda. $.06 for actual cost yet you pay up to $3.00. Bark up another tree you fuckstick.

    They stopped the name changing part. It's illegal now. Also, all the mattresses owned by Tempur Sealy are price locked and cant be discounted. That's why tempurpedic pulled out of mattress firm, they were discounting tempurpedics.

    I have a memory foam mattress. might be 10in or more in thickness. never checked. also don't know the firmness as it was given to me. I had back surgery a few years ago, and my back would always bother in the morning and sometimes for days.
    I love my memory foam mattress. After this one I'm buying another one. I literally have the best night sleep almost every night. I'd say 80% of the time I have the best night sleep in my life. Its that good. The only thing I would change would be to get something a little more firmer next time. Yes its firm, but I still think something a little more firmer would be better. It used to be harder but I guess from sleeping on it it's become just a little bit soft. And yes this is a real review. After sleeping on it for over a year now, I rarely wake up with back pain. Sometimes I still do but I do have a slipped disk and did have surgery so I can't blame the bed.
    Just my two cents.
