Mattress Buying Tips

Well, as you may have noticed things are not normal right now. Prices on almost everything are through the roof. So, how has this affected the mattress industry?

The Mattress Industry is a 29 Billion Dollar industry with a capital B. Consumers are starting to notice the higher prices. Mattresses do fluctuate in price due to material increase but not at the rate it has in recent months.

Here’s what to watch out for.

Many manufactures have lowered the quality of their mattresses to keep prices from going up. The problem with this strategy is it makes things look like they are normal but consumers end up buy products that are not built as well as they were originally intended. This is happening all over the world right now. You may have noticed that quality has taken a bit of a dive in recent months.

Here is how you can shop with full confidence.

Find a local Mattress Company that is Family Owned. Usually small businesses will maintain integrity in times like these. Small businesses thrive on offering great customer service and wouldn’t dream of tarnishing their reputation to save a few bucks.


  1. You are not kidding about the prices. I recently bought all new furniture for my bedroom as well as a new mattress. I couldn’t believe how much things are costing lately. My furniture was also back ordered so I didn’t get it until 8 weeks after the purchase but fortunately my mattress was in stock and able to be delivered only a few days after my original purchase date. I bought a Stearns & Foster mattress with a pillow top. It is great. When my bedroom furniture finally came in I needed to get a lower profile box spring so they had to come back out and exchange it. But any way I still am amazed at how much the price of furniture and mattresses have changed.

  2. I have noticed that mattresses are getting more expensive. I recently went shopping for a mattress and was blown away by the prices. Luckily I found a mattress gallery that had closeout sales on several models. I found a Sealy PL732 Palatial Crest that was considerably less than the online prices.
