Don’t Lose Sleep Over A Mattress.

There is a lot of information about mattress shopping online, but a lot of it is confusing, contradictory, and sometimes just plain wrong. People have the same two concerns when buying a mattress: They don’t want to buy the wrong mattress, and they don’t want to spend a penny more than they have to. The Mattress Nerd uses years of experience to help you find the right mattress at the best price.

Mattress Buying Guide

A mattress is perhaps the most important piece of furniture in your home. If you get the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night, you will spend at least a third of your life in that mattress. That means if you keep that mattress for 9 years (which is about the average), 3 of those years will be spent on it. However, many of us don’t think about our mattresses and how it impacts our lives every day. In this guide, the Mattress Nerd covers the basics of selecting the correct mattress. Topics covered include:

Mattress Comparison Shopping

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. The Mattress Nerd has the industry experience to see through these tactics and help you find the mattress you want for the best price.

[The Mattress Nerd] 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 places, 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!

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!!!

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 too 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!

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!
