before buying a
bed in a box.

HOW SIMPLE IS IT TO EXCHANGE A BED IN A BOX?

If you don’t like your mattress, returns and exchanges aren’t as easy as advertised.

While returns may be free, most bed in a box companies don’t have any other options for you to exchange your mattress with when you aren’t satisfied. So once you fit your bed back in the box (how exactly do you do that anyway?), you have to start the shopping process all over.

Or, you could just choose to shop somewhere with options the first time around.

IS A BED IN A BOX MATTRESS THE SAME QUALITY AS A REGULAR MATTRESS?

The price of a bed in a box mattress might seem reasonable, especially for a memory foam mattress, but is there really a change in quality when you cut out the middleman?

The truth is, most bed in a box companies buy their product from the same people as everyone else, so all you’re gaining when you cut out the middleman is a lack of choice and comfort options to fit your unique sleep needs.

CAN ONE MATTRESS REALLY FIT ALL?

Most bed in a box companies only offer a single comfort option, which can’t be right for everyone. Mattress needs are different for back sleepers, side sleepers, stomach sleepers, sleepers with aches and pains, and couples who share a bed. Why should you be forced to conform?

Your perfect mattress should adapt to the natural curve of your spine and distribute pressure evenly across your body. And how a mattress best supports you depends on your individual needs. One-size mattresses do not always fit all.

HOW FAST CAN I GET MY MATTRESS?

Need a new mattress, like, yesterday?

Then you’re out of luck. Most bed in a box companies can take anywhere from two days to two months to deliver. And of course your mattress is only getting to your doorstep—not to your bedroom. So that means you’re left alone carrying a 70 lb* mattress to your room, setting it up, and disposing of your old mattress.

Let’s hope your bedroom is right inside the front door.

THE PRICES GO UP, BUT QUALITY DOESN’T.

Not only do many customers find bed in a box mattresses not worth their price tags, but some companies have recently raised their prices by more than 20 percent for the same product**.

Now, if you don’t buy the hype about bed in a box mattresses and you want a quality mattress that fits your budget, delivered to you without a hassle, come meet a sleep expert at a Mattress Firm near you.
