    This video uses bad rationale. It suggests because some reviews are paid for, then reviews are not a good guide. It's still a good idea to go off reviews, sure they are not perfect but they are the best we have.

    Suggestion! I have an $130 air mattress ( queen size) with a $100 "famous brand foam topper" and I sleep like a baby. The mattress has an electric pump that allows me to change the firmness at will. Yes I do have to add air every now and then but for the price I paid - it's no bother. You will need to put extra cotton layer ( under the sheet) between you and the foam or you will sweat like crazy. Another small price to pay for a very comfy bed for under $300! Frame not included.

    i worked in a big houseware chain store & we would do price matching & all that, so i had to be very familiar with products & model numbers & researching the comparisons, honestly majority of the time it was the same product just with a unique model number for that store or it had like one more accessory (it's more for loss prevention purposes tbh, essentially so if bbb target & walmart have the same item, someone cant return them at another, whether it was stolen or someone just trying to use a companies more flexible return policy)
    i bought a mattress a couple years ago, fairly on the lower to middle line, went to a couple different stores, in the last store there was a mattress that felt & looked identical to another i liked in another store (same brand too). researched a bit online before i bought it, but came to the same conclusion, the brands just sell the same exact mattress to different places in another name, bought the cheaper out of the two stores.

    Well mattresses aren't exactly a regular purchase, so to stay in buisness off course they'll need a big markup, or else it's gonna end up like everything else and you'll need to buy a new one every year

    Dear Adam, I live in Pittsburgh and here we do have a better option. It is called The Original Mattress Factory and they don’t sell outside brands. Their mattress factory is local and employs local workers. Each mattress is made to order and the prices don’t change based on where you are. I refuse to believe that Pittsburgh is 100% unique in this arena. There has to be an equivalent in at least some other cities.

    I got one of those mail order mattresses (not Casper) and I really like it. It's firm yet squishy and was on sale for under $500. Would recommend (except I'm not saying which one so people don't think I work for them). I'm sure they're all pretty much the same anyway.

    I know websites coming under different brand names but owned by the same owner. These sites claim to be “experts” with fake profiles and images taken from shutterstock as their profile photos.
    Afterwards, they provide false reviews placing the most frequently sold products on the top of their list to ensure that they generate the most money out of it.
    Here’s the kicker: They never even touch the product in the first place! And using good SEO practices, they make it show up on the top search results.
    Nothing but hot air. And they’re making millions out of it.

    All I can say is shop off-brands there cheaper better quality and no hoops to jump through if something goes wrong with the mattress. Also shop at mom and pop shops they will do anything to keep a good name in there community.

    The reason why mattresses are such a rip off is because it's not something you buy often. People keeps mattresses for 10~ years so the retail is much higher then the cost to make it. I worked at a furniture store as a sales person and mattresses had like 200 dollar spiff for a 1500 dollars mattresses. Im not disagreeing it's a rip off but it's kinda justified.

    Growing up, my family always found mattresses at yard sales or outside of peoples house with a big old sign on it that said "FREE". Weve never gotten a dirty mattress and have always found very comfortable and clean ones. We still do this, and to this day have never bought a mattress in a store and have saved thousands of dollars :)

    Just buy one of those mattresses that are just a slab of sponge inside. They super cheep and if you sleep in roughly the same spot, will over time become nice and soft on that area.

    People are gonna take this the wrong way, because that's what they do. Lying on an 80 bucks piece of foam still isn't just as good as sleeping on a quality mattress, and will ruin your health. You don't need a 1000-2000 bucks mattress, but you do need an actual good one.

    The last time I was mattress shopping I already had a nifty, incredibly
    inexpensive, 22" high inflatable queen size bed in a box in my trunk. I
    decided to check out a large mattress store before breaking open and
    trying the cheap bed out but couldn't find any sales people in the
    store. I finally found a lady sleeping in a recliner behind a desk in
    the middle of the store. It was hard to wake her because she was using
    headphones. She finally showed me a mattress I had seen advertised and
    pointed out the fact that it was crap. I told her I was driving around
    with the new inflatable bed in the car and she advised that I was better
    off to keep that one. That was more than one year ago and I am very
    pleased that I did.
