By all means, LinenSpa. Hit me up. You can pay me to write good reviews. I do it already. For real though. I won't spend $300+ on a single mattress. Look it up on Amazon.

    I just had an argument with a buddy about this earlier today. All this stuff is middle to low income demographics because they are the majority of the population and the most susceptible to these scams.
    The reason why is money. They focus on the bottom dollar instead of looking at the big picture. The rich understand the poor are tunnelvisioned and they don't have the capacity to escape their habitual but toxic way of living.

    We don't need a 1k+ mattress. If you do some research you'll know that for the average person, mattresses that are too soft is bad for your body, so I put a 3" memory foam mattress($200) on a hard surface and my back has never felt better. It gives you enough cushion without your whole body sinking into the mattress distorting your spine.
    That's how the Japanese people has done for centuries sleeping on a futon on the hard floor

    Being someone who has been in the industry for 12 years in a variety of capacities I can say, 100%spot on. I can say also that where you buy the mattress has everything to do with how much you pay. Go to mattress firm, get a Simmons beauty rest black hybrid, your going to pay out the nose. Go to some little mom and pop selling their unadvertised brand with the same features and it's a fraction of the cost. Just like with any consumer good you pay something for the name. One of the worst things consumers do to themselves is ask the salesperson what they recommend, and 9 times out of 10 it will be the most expensive model on the floor. The folks I am with take a different tact, we ask questions designed to lead you to the comfort level which is the best fit for you. One of the ways mattress salesmen get over is with their "sleep guarantee" which is worthless and which is really designed to drag even more money out of you. Another is with the warranty, first off true warranty defects are actually rare based upon how these are uniformly written across the industry. Having been someone who has dealt with the sales and warranty sides of the equation I can say 98% of warranty complaints truly are perception and comfort issues. But those are not what are actually going to be considered true manufacturing defects, and to be honest on a vast majority of claims that do actually meet those thresholds 95+% of the time there will be something that will disqualify the claim such as a improperly supported frame, stains, or my favorite, using the old box spring. No matter which side of the equation I have been on my advice is still the same. Find the mattress that seems like the best fit for the back and the pocket book and if you have two models you like equally just go with the lower price option because you have to be just that much more less right.

    i'm sure there must be lots of money in mattresses. You've got these stores in strip malls with big SALE signs on the window. There's some East Indian guy in there telling you how great the deals are and he'll THROW IN a mattress cover to boot! I bought there but didn't believe a word the guy was telling me. And the so called warranty he game me probably isn't worth the paper its written on

No way there is enough demand to require like 8 "Mattress Firms" In a ten mile radius?

    • orlock20

      That is partially true, but mattresses stores rarely sell mattresses. You go to the groceries and you can walk away with a can of beans. You usually can't do that with a store that sells box spring mattresses. The product gets shipped from a warehouse and most of those stores are probably getting those mattresses from the same warehouse.

    In Germany a store owner came up with the idea of making his own after being fed up with all the bullshit of the suppliers. Called it anti cartel mattress. Instantly won in neutral tests, had the same quality as multi thousand euro premium ones for a couple hundred bucks. He was bombarded with lawsuits and even direct sabotage with foam suppliers suddenly sending dirty foam to his small new factory or dropping out of delivering directly. He still sells them. Under a different name - caused by a lawsuit filed by the very mattress cartel he fought against.
