Comparison shopping for a mattress can be very confusing because different retailers have different names for essentially the same mattress. You have to look at the specs of the mattress, which takes extra effort and can be frustrating. Sometimes, retailers will have slightly different specs, which will have no impact on how the mattress feels and is essentially the same mattress.

In this guide I’ll do all of the work for you to make it easier to comparison shop for the Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. Whether you saw a mattress in store and want to find a lower price online, or saw a mattress online and want to try it in a store first (which is a good idea), this chart can help. (Update: The 2014 models are being discontinued and a lot of retailers are coming out with the 2015 Beautyrest models. Here is the comparison chart for the 2015 models. This also means you can get some good deals on floor models and clearance merchandise. Check to see if your local store has any, and if not, check out US Mattress’s selection here)

Beautyrest comes in a few different levels. There is the Beautyrest Recharge Classic and the Beautyrest Recharge World Class. There are also levels above that, but they vary from retailer to retailer, and it’s harder to comparison shop. Some have the Beautyrest Ultra, some have the Beautyrest Black, some have the Beautyrest Legend. But everybody has the Classic and World Class, so that’s what I’m focusing on.

When you’re comparing prices, make sure you select the correct boxspring. Some retailers have the mattress and boxspring set as the default, some have just the mattress and you need to add the boxspring manually.

To use this chart, just find the model you want to compare, and compare models in the same row. Enter the model name of what you want to compare in the search box for quicker results. Click on the name to open a new window to that retailer to see the price. L1, L2, and L3 stand for “level 1, level 2, level 3” within the recharge classic lineup.

A few notes about the table:

  • There may be minor differences in the mattresses due to the aforementioned retailer exclusives. These should have no impact on how the mattress feels.
  • Check my Coupon Page to see if the retailers have any coupons to bring the price down even further.
  • Consider factors like delivery speed, delivery charge, and return policy when comparing prices.
  • only sells the mattress and boxspring as a set; you cannot buy just the mattress alone for these.
  • When comparing prices, be sure to compare the correct size and whether or not it comes with a boxspring (i.e. “mattress set” vs “mattress only”)

I focused on the biggest brick-and-mortar retailers and the biggest online retailers. I wanted to do Sears as well, but they don’t put specs on their website and their links often came up broken, so I had a hard time comparing models. I obviously can’t put the model name that every small time retailer uses in the chart. So if you want to compare any other Simmons Beautyrest (or any other brand), check out my free Mattress Comparison Shopping Service. I will find the cheapest comparison models for you!

So what can you do with this information?

Either find the mattress you liked in the chart, find the lowest price, and buy it online or go back into the showroom and take advantage of a price beat guarantee. The latter might save you more money but is more time consuming. The former is quicker and easier.

If this helps you save money, please let me know in the comments below!
