VISIT THE STORE
You can never know if the mattress is good or bad until and unless you feel it with your own hands and see its design, shape, and style with your own eyes. Simply seeing it on the screen will give you some idea but in order to have a complete idea, visit your nearest store.
DON’T FALL FOR A GIMMICK
Mattress can feel firm when you lie on it for the first time. However, later when you get it home, it may not feel that comfortable like it felt in the store. So it is wise to give yourself the time to adjust with your mattress. Most mattress companies claim to label mattresses as “orthopedic” or “medically-approved,” but no medical organization has ever approved mattresses to carry such labels.
ASK ABOUT COMFORT GUARANTEES OR TRIAL PERIODS BEFORE YOU BUY
There are states that still allow retailers to offer, what you call a comfort guarantee. Make sure to ask your mattress service about details like, if there are any hidden charges or some money-back guarantee or exchange if you want to return the mattress within a certain time-frame. Further good mattresses come with a 10-year full replacement or non-prorated warranty. Those mattresses that are waterproof will help you claim warranty as stains void your warranty.
LOOK AT SPECIFICATIONS AND PRICE
This point is very important if you are looking for mattresses online. Always try to look at the description and what are the different layers of the mattress, what is it made of including support cores, comfort layers, and other components. It will help you compare various mattress types and determine which is the best for you. In addition to this, mattress comes expensive, they usually range between $800-$1500. Furthermore, when you shop online it comes with a delivery charge. So always chalk out a budget that looks after everything right from the mattress price to delivery charges. Also, just because it is expensive, it doesn’t mean it will be comfortable. Read reviews and match it with your list of preference to come to a conclusion.
Remember, it’s your mattress, your back, and your money, so it’s worth the time to research it and get the best mattress possible. Keep an eye out for specials and sales, and always try to negotiate delivery charges.
