Shopping tips when buying a new mattress 1024 684 Jonathan Swindle
Buying a new mattress is easier than ever without requiring you to even step foot in a store if you don’t wish to. However, with so many options, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and confused on where to even begin. How do you know which retailer to choose with all of the fierce competition for your business? Should you attempt to buy your mattress online for the convenience, hoping the mixed bag of reviews will give you a decent idea of what it will really feel like? How do you know what typical prices will look like? Here are some tips and what to expect in order to make your buying experience run more smoothly from start to finish. 

Compare the types

If you’re shopping for a new mattress, you could be overwhelmed by the variety of choices and prices, ranging from too-low-to-believe to astronomical. After years of testing, Consumer Reports suggests settling around $1,000 for a comfortable, quality mattress. Options include mattresses made of memory foam, innerspring, latex, and gel, or hybrids. Each has its own benefits and possible disadvantage depending on your personal needs.

Shop in-store

Even if you ultimately decide it’s not for you and you’d rather shop online, start in-house; no amount of online research can substitute for the experience of trying out mattresses in a store. Plus, when you shop with a business-like That Mattress Place, you’ll get exceptional customer service and access to staff with over 10 years of experience in the business who can answer questions you may have. That Mattress Place Corpus Christi is a factory-direct business, meaning you’ll also get great options at discounted rates between 40 to 70%.

Test drive the mattresses

Another reason to check out a physical store is the ability to test the feel of a mattress before you buy.  If possible, lie on the mattresses you’re considering purchasing. Don’t feel self-conscious or be hurried into making a purchase; a mattress is a big investment. Wear loose, comfortable clothing and plan on spending at least 5 to 10 minutes laying on each side, your back, and stomach if necessary to get a good feel for the mattress. Couples should test new mattresses together.

Check Return Policies

Ask about trial periods and “comfort returns,” meaning that you can return the mattress if you’re unhappy for any reason, although some retailers charge a restocking fee. Before buying, make sure you understand exactly how the return policy works. That Mattress Place Corpus Christi will work with you to ensure you are completely satisfied with your purchase. Make sure to check out the mattress warranty as well.

Delivery Day

Never accept delivery without inspecting your purchase for damage and keep any labels on the mattress in the event you need to file a warranty claim in the future. Photos of damage may come in handy if requested by the customer service representative for proof of the damage.

Whether you’re just considering a new mattress, or have already started the shopping process, That Mattress Place Corpus Christi offers high quality and affordable mattresses, furniture, and accessories to save you money.
