Sealy Posturepedic is one of the biggest name brands of mattresses around. They come out with new models roughly every year or two. The new models came out in early 2015, so this guide will help compare 2015 Sealy Posturepedic models among several of the biggest retailers. (Note: the 2015 models are still currently used in 2016. I expect to see new models next year). As you may have noticed (and as I’ve talked about before on this site), mattress retailers try to make it difficult to comparison shop by giving their mattresses different names than what the same thing will be at another retailer.
The following is a chart that compares the names of the mattresses at various retailers. You’ll notice there are a few levels of Posturepedic. The two biggest categories are “Posturepedic” and “Posturepedic Plus.” The “Plus” models have an upgraded coil system. (You’ll also notice two lower end models at the top of the chart as well; those are better for guest rooms and the like). This will help you comparison shop for the lowest price so you don’t pay a penny more than you have to.
Some notes about this chart:
- It’s possible that some of the models aren’t exact comparisons. Companies sometimes put some kind of small “exclusive feature” in their mattress like an anti-microbial cover, or they change a layer of foam slightly. These should be considered “comparable models,” not necessarily exact
- Make sure you’re comparing the prices for the same size and whether or not a boxspring is included
- The price of the mattress shouldn’t necessarily be your only concern. Consider exchange/return policies, delivery fees, and delivery time in your decision.
- 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 my free comparison shopping service and let me comparison shop for you.
There are several things you can do with this chart. 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.
