    This isn't entirely true yes mattress companies make the same mattress for different stores... but some stores really do have special things added to the mattress...some being gimmicky and some actually make the mattress more structurally better

    How about this one:
    MATTRESS FIRM IS A MONEY LAUNDERING FRONT
    Think about it. Why else would they need a store on every corner, selling a product you only need to buy once every 7 to 10 years? And why are their stores always empty? Have you ever actually seen someone in a Mattress Firm? There’s no way they’re getting enough business to have as many stores as they do.
    And a mattress is the perfect place to hide money-ask your paranoid relatives.

    While some of the stuff in the video may be true, ultimately if you're willing to pay the price for a product and make a voluntary transaction and the product does what its supposed to, you have not been ripped off. If you want 100% accountability, you may consider crafting your own mattress but chances are, it will be complete shit compared to something produced professionally.

    I sleep on the floor (wood). It has been the BEST thing I have ever done for my back. It is sooo comfortable. I wake up feeling so refreshed everyday! To transition from sleeping on a mattress, I slept on three big comforters to help my body get used to the hardness of the floor. After two weeks, I removed one comforter. After three more weeks, I removed another. And now there is only a semi thick blanket between me and the floor - mostly for warmth. The hardest part was getting my head to adjust to the floor. But I will never go back! Reply if you have a similar experience! I know many Japanese people also do this.

    This is so true. I constantly try and tell me customers this. I build all my own mattresses at a fair price. The one sided mattresses that wear out in 3-5 years is normal now. I feel bad for the average customer that doesn't know any better.

  • Daniel Camero
    Daniel Camero 10 ore fa

    What I find interesting is how some people can sleep on a $300 mattress and think it's the greatest. While others complain about it and end up spending $3000. Of course it's going to be a confusing shop - it's not a microwave, car tires, dishwasher, tv, etc either.
    Imagine the day where you walk into a mattress store and there's one bed. One bed that fits all. I've seen showrooms with close to 100 beds on the floor. It's ridiculous because everyone is different and with different needs. It's an industry where they have to have something for everyone.
    Generally speaking, we replace our phones almost yearly now. We replace our cars every 5 years.

    um.. no better options? Most people can make their own. For super cheap if you're willing to use poly fill, a common pillow and mattress filler. Or you can use all natural materials like cotton for a bit more, but still affordable.

    Actually, there is a better option. It's called a Japanese futon. You see, Humans aren't designed to sleep in fluffy surfaces, when we do, our spine gets out of whack. Japanese people have been sleeping on futons forever. It goes flat with a surface and is much healthier than any matress. I bought my queen size on Amazon for $100. It's been a month and it's perfectly fine.

  • Just Bleek
    Just Bleek 13 ore fa

    Soooo Adam has a couple things wrong, per usual. First price matching is done by comparable mattress construction, not by name. Second the ways beds are constructed give you a different feel. The features are moreso to make the sleeper more confortable which in turn gives them a better sleep. Third there are two big mattress suppliers but they DO NOT get their supplies from the same place (side note legett and platt specialize in frames, platforms, and adj bases not beds). For instance Tempur only has 3 factories and they are built from the ground up. That is one example. There's more you messed up but Im sure you get the point. Please start fact checking.

    Interesting timing on this video, as I'm currently shopping for a new bed. I think I've settled on simply the cheapest 4" foam ikea mattress with a 2" memory foam topper. A topper alone on a carpeted floor (with under-carpet padding) is plenty comfortable, but I don't want to sleep on the floor anymore, so I'm getting a slatted frame and some foam. Overall the cost is half of what the online mattress companies charge, and about equivalent to ordering off amazon, but I got to try it in ikea first and I'm happy with it.

    Love these!! Last time, we bought a mattress at one of those convenience store size grocery stores on a whim and found out it was the same as the big names in the brick and mortar stores. 1/3 the price! We have a local mattress factory in town though where they're made in front of you and same price usually cheaper. This very problem has always bothered me. We went so far as to ask my uncle that worked at a foam factory make a custom mattress for us to avoid the issue.

    The online ones i looked at give between 90 and 180 days for a full refund. The one i ended up getting said they will pick it up for free and donate it for free for me although im sure they get a tax write off for doing that but the one i got is the best ive ever had. A leesa, but a lot of people think its a little to firm. But great for me. Have had a year and a half.

    As someone working for IKEA and selling mattresses, we had to visit other mattress companies to see how to sell their products and what their products are based on. And I can honestly reply that most mattress companies actually sell overpriced products with ???? features like adam showed in this video. Costumers really believe the salestalk there and that 'the more money you spend the better quality'. This is ABSOLUTELY not always the case. I get so many costumers ranting to me about back problems and they keep defending that they bought a very good quality mattress worth 2000 EUR. Ok, I don't want to sound like I'm advertising, but these people are really surprised that I'm not selling them the priciest one we have, but just a plain, simple 150 EUR mattress that WORKS for their body. You don't always need such extra features to sleep well, but you need to pick a mattress based on your body, not on price. I do give them more expensive options, but I keep telling them that these features are just optional, and you have 90 days to test out the mattress too. I guess the reason between these matresscompanies is because the employees are payed by selling commission instead by hour... We get payed hourly and with normal bonus without being related to a selling quotum. This makes it that our employees are more down-to-earth and honest if a product just isn't that good or if it really is instead of fake-selling-shit.
