Tempurpedic Reviews and Alternatives
Thinking about a Tempurpedic but don't like the price? Check out these alternatives.
As you may have noticed, it’s difficult to comparison shop for mattresses between retailers because they often have different names for what seems to be the same exact mattress. Or, the retailer will claim their mattress is an exclusive, or their model has some feature that nobody else has that makes it different. How then will you take advantage of the price match guarantees that so many places offer? We’re here to help!

As you may have figured out, the same mattress can be sold under different names at different retailers. Other times, a retailer will have minor “exclusive” features to make it even more confusing. The following is a guide to comparing this year’s Simmons Beautyrest models between different retailers.
Have you considered an online brand? Here are some of our favorites, or if you’d prefer scroll down to view the comparison chart.
Beautyrest has three main levels: Black, Platinum, and Silver.
These are a step above the Platinum models. Since they tend to be sold under the same name everywhere, the few important things to take into consideration when shopping for one of these mattresses are the service level, return policies, and any free gifts that a retailer is offering. A retailer that earns high marks for all of these areas is US Mattress. Below are links for the entire line for Beautyrest Black.

Beautyrest came out with new Platinum models this year. Compared to the 2017 models, the 2018 models are very similar. The foams up top were rearranged a bit, but they use the same coil system underneath. (Some retailers are still using the 2017 models. I will update this chart as new retailers start carrying the 2018 models. See my 2017 chart if your model is not on the list)

The Beautyrest Silver is the “entry level” to the Beautyrest line, which is the flagship line of the Simmons brand. (They also have the “Beauty Sleep” collection, which is a step down and is more suited to guest rooms or temporary use).
As of writing this, Beautyrest is still using the Silver models that came out in 2017 (they came out with new Platinum models early this year). I will update this article with new information if new Silver models get released. The following is a chart comparing Silver models at some of the bigger retailers:

Here are a few comments about the above charts:
You can find Beautyrest mattresses online and at retailers throughout the U.S. In 2018, Beautyrest added a third line of mattresses, a.k.a. Black, a touch glitzier than Platinum, to their Silver and Platinum lines. It’s a variation on a theme—big manufacturer floods zone with more options for more people. But it’s a theme Beautyrest has the national presence to deliver.
Like the 2017 offerings, the 2018 includes multiple lines, in this case Silver (basic), Platinum (nicely priced high-end) and Black (a touch glitzier than Platinum overall). Beautyrest comes through with coil-only options and hybrid options in all three classes.
You want to know what has changed, right? Well, the Black line is new for 2018. The 2018 Silvers are the same as 2017, the 2018 Platinums were modified slightly. Again, the charts are meant to help you identify the Beautyrest options wherever you’re shopping for the 2018 versions. They don’t include the Black line because those are sold as is wherever you go.
The Silver line features level 1, level 2—the coil system models—and hybrids. The chart for the Silver line above breaks down all of the names and firmness levels by their official names, their U.S. names and what they’re known as if you’re shopping at Amazon, Macy’s or Sears.
The Platinum line includes the coil system-only and the hybrid options. The chart breaks down names and firmness levels by their official names, their U.S. names what they’re known by if you’re looking for them at Macy’s or Sears. The Chestnut Hill and Cedar Ridge mattresses at Macy’s are the Beautyrest 2018 Platinum mattresses but have been modified enough by Macy’s to stand alone.
That’s the downside to a big retailer like Simmons; the options are overwhelming. The chart is meant to help you sort it if you dare.
Thinking about a Tempurpedic but don't like the price? Check out these alternatives.
Between the strong pedigree of the Serta Simmons and the quality of the materials used, I am comfortable recommending Tomorrow Sleep to my readers. It’s a good mid-range hybrid mattress and has a few options to accommodate different sleeping positions.
