Mattress Comparison Charts

Disclosure: This site receives a payment from 1800 Mattress, Amazon, Nest Bedding, Keetsa, Leesa, Sapira, Wright, Sears, Sleepy’s, Macy’s, Mattress.com, Overstock, or Spindle when you purchase a product using any links to that company in this article (or use my coupon code).

There are several things you can do with the Mattress Comparison Charts. If you saw something you liked in a store, you can find a cheaper price online. Then, either get the local store to match or beat that price, or just buy it online and save money.

Or, if you were shopping online for a mattress, but you wanted to try it out in a store first, you can see which stores have it to try out.

Please note the following before using the comparison charts:

This is only a few of the biggest retailers. I don’t have the time or the space to include ~100 different retailers across the country. So, if you tried out something at a local store that you want to compare, contact me through the form below and let me help you shop.

Comparison Shopping Service

Are you trying to comparison shop for a mattress but are struggling? Do you not have the time or patience to compare specs of mattresses? Let me do it for you!

Retailers intentionally make it difficult to comparison shop by using different model names and numbers at different stores. They also shroud the specs in jargon intended to confuse you. I have the industry experience to see through these tactics.

This is a FREE SERVICE. All you have to do is fill out the form to the right, and include a link to the mattress you want to comparison shop for. Ideally, this would be a mattress that you tried in the store and found to give you the correct level of comfort and support. Be sure to include the size and whether you need the mattress alone or the mattress and boxspring set. This works best with big name brands like Simmons, Sealy, and Serta, but I can try to comparison shop anything.

Again, to use it, just include either a link to the mattress, or list the model name, size, store you shopped at, and whether you need the boxspring set as well as the price you were quoted.

Comparison Shopping

Include either a link to the mattress, or list the model name, size, store you shopped at, and whether you need the boxspring set as well as the price you were quoted.

Do you know how the Sealy Crown Jewel Geneva Ruby firm compares? Is it in Sealy's premium range? I'm pretty sure it's not the Essential range. Thanks Brett

MattressNerd Says

July 20, 2017 at 11:59 am

It is roughly in between the Perfect Sleeper lineup and the iComfort lineup. It uses a Perfect Sleeper coil system with iComfort foams. I'd recommend looking at something like the Applause for the same foams but a stronger coil system.

Carla Says

July 20, 2017 at 9:48 am

Thanks in advance for your help. I'm looking at the Serta Iseries hybrid 100 firm at Mattress Firm. It looks like a captive product for Mattress Firm, so it is difficult to compare. Any advice on what other products to directly compare to?

Deb Says

July 18, 2017 at 9:03 am

I am looking for a new queen mattress and box spring. I don't even know where to begin. I have lower back and hip pain , am a side and stomach sleeper. I am 5'8" and my husband 5'10". Both are slightly overweight. Not sure if I should get innerspring or foam or?.. I also tend to get hot when I sleep. Can you tell me what I should be looking at when I go try them out at the store? Have a limited budget

MattressNerd Says

July 14, 2017 at 7:00 am

The main difference between those models will be the extra inch and a half of foam. If you liked both mattresses equally, the Golden Gate is a fine choice. If you were interested in the BackCare coils, you could get the mattress from one of the competitors who has that feature.

MattressNerd Says

July 14, 2017 at 6:58 am

That's actually a good point. Macy's generally changes their Beautyrest models to make it difficult to comparison shop. It looks like they are using their strip of titanium in the center 1/3rd of the mattress instead of the BackCare coils. The coils would be better in my opinion, so it might not be quite as good as the competitors models.

Natalia Says

July 13, 2017 at 11:27 pm

I am trying to buy beautyrest sliver Luxury Firm pillow top Golden gate or Waterscape. I see your comparison chart that Waterscape is the same model with Charcoal Coast which has 490 Coil back support system. However, in the Macy's website, they do not have that information but they said they have Titanium Lumba support. I am trying to buy mattress for my back pain. Do you think Waterscape still have 490 Coil system or should I just buy Golden Gate for better value?

Natalie Says

July 13, 2017 at 9:42 pm

Hi! I am debating beautyrest pillow-top luxury firm Golden Gate and Waterscape model. If I use your comparison chart, Waterscape has 490 Coil BackCare Support but Macy's did not note that and they talked about Titinium exclusive. Do you think Waterscape has 490 Coil Backcare system? Or is Macy's one different from other comparable models?

MattressNerd Says

July 10, 2017 at 7:25 am

As far as I can tell, Personal Comfort makes an effort to make it easy to compare, so the P5 will be similar to the A5 at Personal Comfort. Innomax's website is a mess and doesn't give clear specs, so I have no idea what will be similar to the P5 there.

MattressNerd Says

July 10, 2017 at 7:20 am

The Pillipsburg 2 is the older model, which compares to the older model of the Keaton. Macy's new Keaton is made exclusively for them. It'll be similar to the Phillipsburg 3, but not the same. The Exclusive titanium lumbar support is exclusive to Macy's, just like they say. It is a thin strip of titanium between the foam and coils, which I cannot feel when trying out the mattresses. It's more of a marketing gimmick than anything.

Adrienne Thompson Says

July 9, 2017 at 11:00 pm

Hello! I see that the Beautyrest Keaton luxury firm pillowtop at Macy's and the Beautyrest Phillipsburg luxury firm pillowtop at US Mattress are the same on the 2016 chart. US Mattress now sells the "Phillipsburg II" instead. Is this still comparable to the Keaton? Also, Macy's says the Keaton has titanium lumbar support that is exclusive to Macy's. Does the Phillipsburg II have this? Does it even matter (we're both smaller side sleepers)? Thanks!

Meribeth Says

Hi Jack, Thank you again for your wonderful, informative site! You took the frustration out of the mattress buying process for me. I read everything at your site and still had a few questions. Thank you for replying to my e-mails so quickly. Within 3 days I had the mattress set I wanted - - delivered / setup AND for a great price. I wish I had done this sooner! Thanks again for all your help…Have a Happy 4th of July!

MattressNerd Says

June 29, 2017 at 3:11 pm

The Keaton is on the Older Beautyrest comparison chart. The Legend is only sold at Mattress Firm. You can't compare the same mattress elsewhere, but the Beautyrest Black line is a similar quality.

Bill Clifford Says

June 29, 2017 at 7:13 am

Hello, I am ready to buy a new king mattress set and am particularly interested in a mattress at Macy's due to their July 4 sale. I'm looking at the Recharge World Class Keaton Luxury Firm Pillowtop. Want a firm mattress but hope the pillowtop will make it more comfortable when sleeping on our side. Macy's price for this king set seems really good at $1647.00. Was also looking at a Beautyrest Legend model at Mattress Firm. Seems to have the same basic 1000 coils, but also adds micro-coils. And it costs roughly $2500 for the set (and it's not a pillowtop). My wife and I are both 69 y/o and we're both a little overweight - so support is important to us. Will appreciate any help you can give us here. Thanks so much! Bill Clifford

A lot has changed in the past 17 years. You won't find a mattress exactly like that now.

My mom purchased her mattress in 2000 - king - sedgefield beautyrest Simmons . She still loves her bed but I would like to get her a new one that corresponds to that model. Any suggestions?

MattressNerd Says

June 23, 2017 at 4:13 pm

Hampton & Rhodes is only sold at mattress firm as far as I'm aware, so you won't find the exact mattress elsewhere. That said, it is a fairly basic mattress. The coil system is the "old school" type in which all the coils are tied together. Virtually all retail mattresses you'll see today use individually wrapped coils instead, which are better at contouring to your body and preventing motion transfer. The foam layers are fairly simple as well. Much of it is just regular polyurethane foam, with a thin layer of memory foam. That's why the price is so low. If you can find a mid-range Sealy Posturepedic or Simmons Beautyrest that you like for about the same price, that'll be a better deal.

MattressNerd Says

Thanks for writing. It's tough to say which one that is at Rooms to Go, because they don't list the specs of the mattress. They only say it's 12 inches thick, and none of the Beautyrest Silvers are 12 inches. The Palmer Island at Sears is 13 inches, and that's the thinnest Beautyrest Silver Hybrid listed anywhere. So either it's the same as the Palmer Island at Sears and RTG just make a mistake on the height, or it's a lower end model that nobody else sells.

Bob Taft Says

June 10, 2017 at 10:44 am

Looking at The Beautyrest Silver Hybrid Mattress at Sears. They call it the Bailey's Harbour. Rooms to Go has a similar mattress they call the Pearl White that is much less expensive. Are they the same mattress? If not, does RTG have a mattress that is comparable to the one at sears?

MattressNerd Says

June 7, 2017 at 8:08 pm

It doesn't have a law tag? That's super shady. Contact your district attorney for legal questions though, I am not qualified to give legal advice.

isabel mccudden Says

June 7, 2017 at 6:28 pm

I bought a "new" Simmons Beautyrest Platinum Hybrid from a dealer, but the cover fabric is completely different from any Beautyrest models I find advertised, and the stuffing feels strange. Is it possible I actually bought a refurbished mattress instead? Is it legal to sell these as "new"? Do you think this mattress is safe/hygienic? Do I have any recourse? Thanks P.S. No tags, dealer said removed by Simmons because discounted seconds, " as is, no warranty".

MattressNerd Says

May 27, 2017 at 4:49 pm

I really can't know for sure what's best for her. Everybody is different. Since she's older and fairly light, I'd recommend something with a plusher top, however, older people tend to prefer firmer mattresses just because that's all they've known most of their lives, so it's sometimes a tough sell to convince somebody that a soft mattress is good.

Looking for a mattress for my mother who's 88 and lays in bed most of the day. She is an edge of the bed side/back sleeper. She weighs 135 lbs and has an adjustable bed frame. Can you advise me of the mattres that is best for her ?

Carol Davis Says

March 1, 2017 at 2:17 pm

Thank you for your recommendation. My husband and I recently purchased a Leesa mattress to replace our 12 year old Temperpedic. We were thrilled that they honored their free shipping to us all the way out in Hawaii! Most companies have that small print regarding Hawaii and Alaska. So that in itself was a huge money saving deal. Other than noticing a slight chemical type odor for the first week or so, we both absolutely LOVE our new mattress! The odor has dissipated now and I have a feeling it occurred because we were just so anxious to put the sheets on and jump on that the mattress didn't have enough time to air out. Thank you again for your wonderful, informative site! I absolutely recommend buying a mattress this way. Hassle free! Mahalo!

Hi: I am mattress shopping and have narrowed the choices down to three but am so confused as to which mattress would be better in the long run. My husband and I are both back/side sleepers and have shoulder and hip issues. We are looking at the Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid Sybel Plush, the Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid Tamara Ultimate Luxury Plus and the Serta iSeries Honoree Super Pillow Top mattresses. I weigh 108 pounds and my husband weighs 180. Would one of these mattresses be better than the other in the long run or should I avoid any of them? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated! They sell all three at US Mattress.

Hello Jack, My sister purchased the BeautyRest Classic Plush Firm Special Edition from Crate & Barrel. I had the opportunity to lay on it and try it out. I want it, but the over $1,000 price tag for the Queen size set is too much for my pocketbook. Is this mattress sold anywhere else, under another name for less. I have checked out USMattress, but have become totally bogged down and confused by it all. I would appreciate any help you can give me to steer me in the right direction.

Hi Jack, ,Looking at a full size Sealy Posturepedic closeout mattress set called Noranda cushion firm euro top. It is advertised at Pennys for $464.00 supposedly reduced from$1100.00 Can you tell me what you know about this mattress set or can you recommend a set that would be better my budget is around $600.00 give or take a little. Thank you Roseanne

Thanks for your help Jack! We were able to save $300 once frame, shipping etc were taken into account. Our local store would not match what we found online saying it just couldn't be the same mattress. But we knew different from comparing specs w Jack's help. Great site!

I was looking for a mattress which I was quoted at a furniture store, but there was no mattress that has same name online. I asked Jack for help and he pulled up the exact same spec mattress from USmattress which offered much better price and faster turn around!

Jack was able to find us the same exact mattress online at a much lower price with a free delivery!! We put our order in right away and will be receiving it very soon. He also told us about a mattress liner that was lower in price to what was offered in the mattress store..bought that as well. We can't thank Jack enough and how quickly he answered our email. THANK YOU JACK...I will tell everyone I know about your website and how helpful you are!

Many thanks to Jack for your very helpful comparison shopping. We saved about $600 which was amazing! We bought one of the 2015 Beautyrest Recharge World Class mattresses that we tried in store, but Jack helped us figure out which one to buy on USmattress instead for much cheaper. The mattress arrived this evening and it surely is the one we wanted! Thanks to Jack for saving us a ton. Our backs and our wallets are thankful!

Thank you so much!! I found this webite right before I was about to buy a Sealy gel mattress and sent in a request here for a better deal. I had found a queen one at Sleeptrain for around $1100. I knew that was to much and talked them down. I went home to talk to my husband about it. In that time Jack had emailed me and found the same mattress for $623 with tax included! I showed the sales guy the online price and he price matched it. He didn't seem to happy but I was!

Jack provided incredibly quick and impressively thorough answers to two sets of questions I threw at him as my wife and I selected our new mattress. We will definitely save a nice chunk of change based on his recommendations. So glad I found this gem of a website!

MattressNerd Says

March 5, 2015 at 4:48 pm

Sears has the 2015 Beautyrests, which US Mattress doesn't have out yet, so nothing is exactly comparable. When US Mattress starts carrying the 2015 models I'll have a better idea of how they match up.

JACK IS A SAVIOR!! I've never purchased a mattress before and had no idea it was like buying a car! he not only sent me a better price online but broke down my interaction with the salesman i dealt with (letting me know i got a fair price but i was also being lied to). Jack took a lot of time responding to my many questions within a few hours (SO QUICK)! I will never ever buy a mattress again without consulting this site and will definitely be sending this info to all my friends. THANKS AGAIN!!!

A low profile boxspring is just a boxspring that is about half the height of a regular boxspring. It's designed to be just as solid and sturdy as the regular boxspring. Unless you have a lot of slats on the bed, I don't recommend putting a board across the frame unless the wood is so thick that it won't flex at all (even when spanning across a big open space in the frame). A low profile boxspring will run you about $180 on Amazon, and something like that will be strong enough to hold the mattress.

I bought a really great boxspring and mattress a year ago and then this year I bought an amazing bed frame. My problem came about when I put my box spring and mattress on the bed frame. The mattress is way to high. You have to take a running start to jump up onto the bed. And know I don't know what to do. someone mentioned replacing my normal box spring with a Low Profile Box Spring - but I'n not sure I know what that is. Or can i just ditch the box spring all together and put a big piece board on the frame slats and then put my mattress on that? This bed is costing me more than I wanted in both money and stress of falling out of the two story mattress. Can anyone give me some help or guidance, i'm really bummed and desperate to fix this without going into debt. thanks, james

Jack helped me find the same mattress at USMattress.com that I had tried out in-store at Macys and I saved over $100 off the sale price plus free shipping and no sales tax! What a great value service! Thank you so much

Jack helped me track down online a similar mattress to one that I tested out in a Sears store. I ended up buying the mattress from USMattress.com, which saved me almost $60 compared to Sears, due to sales tax (Sears charged tax but US Mattress did not). Thank you so much for your help!

Hi again, I'm sorry I made a mistake in my last message to you about the Macy's mattress name but I see you have the correct mattress name in your comparison chart so that was very helpful in determining what mattress version Sleepy's has. So no need for a response. Thank you. Alex

Jack was SOOO HELPFUL! This was my first ever mattress purchase. I used all of his tips from the site during the selection process (take your time, go to multiple place, don't buy the first day, etc) AND, when I found what I wanted, he helped me comparison shop. I ended up getting the mattress I wanted for $300 below the asking price! Thank you so much for your help, Jack! -Claire

Thank you very much! The information you sent back to me was not only helpful in getting a better price but made me very happy that the price I paid was as good as I could have gotten. For those in Cali, I would also highly recommend SleepTrain. They were very accommodating in price matching to online pricing w/ additional 10% off. When I asked if they had any deals on accessories they gave me a $300 credit for accessories. All in all I got the mattress w/ foundation, two expensive pillows, mattress cover and high gauge bedframe for a lot less than listed price in store.
