The idea of shopping for a mattress online is complex to many people — but it doesn’t need to be. Shopping for a mattress online is easier than you realize, especially with liberal, risk-free trial opportunities by many mattress makers, along with many other benefits to consider when buying a mattress online. This step-by-step guide helps you shop for a mattress online.

Step 1: Identify the Qualities You Seek in a Mattress

Different people have different needs when it comes to a mattress. One of the first things to consider is the size mattress you want. It not only needs to fit your sleep style, but also the space you have available.

Additionally, you’ll want to identify certain characteristics you prefer in a mattress, such as firmness levels, amount of support, plushness, and even how cool or hot the mattress sleeps.

Step 2: Research Your Options

There are many online options available when it comes to buying mattresses. Your mission at this point is to read around to find the company that offers the right mix of excellent customer service, superior products, positive reviews, and price.

You might also research social concerns you may have to find a company that meets your approval when it comes to things like sourcing ingredients, standing behind their products, and using quality ingredients and materials to craft their mattresses.

What types of qualities are you looking for in a mattress? Once you find a great mattress company, or narrow your options to a few excellent choices, the focus shifts to the mattresses themselves. You’ve already identified many of the qualities you’re looking for in the mattress itself. Now is the time to learn about what is available for you, and which mattresses meet your needs best.

Specific benefits you might look for when buying a mattress online include things like:

  • Risk-free purchasing. For instance, Latex for Less offers a 120-night risk-free trial, allowing you to try the mattress for 120 nights without any risk. If you don’t like it, simply return the mattress within the 120-night period for a full refund.
  • Warranties. Long warranties indicate that a company believes in their mattresses enough to put their money where their mouths are. Latex for Less offers a 20-year limited warranty on our mattresses, so you can buy with confidence you’re getting a mattress that is made to last.
  • Craftsmanship. Latex for Less mattresses are built to order, and handcrafted in the USA specifically for you. Each mattress takes between seven and 15 days to build and deliver to you with tracking provided, so you’ll know precisely when your mattress arrives.
  • Quality materials. Finally, the most important thing to note about your new mattress when shopping online is the quality of materials used to make the mattress. For that you need to work with companies that offer transparency in the process.

Step 3: Pricing Your New Mattress

Finally, it comes down to the brass tacks when buying mattresses online. Sometimes you’re buying from retailers online that have markups for commissions, inventory, drop shipping, advertising, etc. Other times, you’re buying directly from the manufacturer. This cuts out all the middlemen, and allows you to pay the absolute lowest price for the mattress you purchase, without sacrificing an ounce of quality in the process.

At Latex for Less, we believe you shouldn’t be priced out of the quality you desire for you and your family. Latex for Less mattresses offer exceptional values for the money, especially when you consider our 20-year warranty. Whichever mattress you choose when buying a mattress online, make sure you’re getting a great value for the money you spend to buy the mattress.
