3 Questions to Ask Before Purchasing a Mattress


Buying a mattress is a big deal so be sure to ask the right questions first!

Having to buy a new mattress is a pretty big deal–after all, it’s where you’ll spend your nights for the next 3 to 5 years. It’s a huge investment to make as well! There are so many options out there that you may find the whole experience somewhat dizzying. It’s important to walk into your bedding store with questions in mind so you don’t get off track. Here are 3 questions that you must ask your budding salesperson before coming to a final decision!

1. How Well Can You Work Within My Budget?

Good mattresses aren’t cheap–but the benefits of a good mattress are just about priceless. You certainly shouldn’t stretch yourself beyond what you can afford, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to find the best you can within your budget. In fact, it may even be worth putting in some extra hours at your job or cutting back spending in other areas of your life. Still, you’ll want to make your budget as clear with your sales rep as you can and go from there.

2. Can I Try It?

We know, we know: it may seem awkward to lay down on a store mattress in front of your salesperson. You have to do it though! Don’t be afraid to ask because there’s really no substitute for trying the bed out yourself. You shouldn’t just lay on it on your back though, try stretching out, trying your favorite positions, and rolling around a bit. If you share your bed with a partner, both of you should try it out at the same time. This will guarantee that you really know what bed you’re getting and you won’t be disappointed with the quality of the mattress later.

3. What About Returns or Trial Periods?

With that said, there’s no telling how much you’ll enjoy a mattress until you get a full night spent on it. Often, bedding dealers will give a “comfort trial” period. This typically lasts 30 days where you can return the mattress if it’s a letdown, but most stores do charge a restocking fee for this convenience. Trial periods are still crucial, particularly if you purchase a mattress online.
