Your Memory Foam Mattress and Its In Home Trial

Many people who would like to try a memory foam mattress don’t do so because they are afraid of the unknown.  What if I try a memory foam mattress and don’t like it?  Then what?  That’s why you shouldn’t buy a memory foam mattress (or any mattress) without an extended trial (180 days or more) in your own home.

Memory foam mattresses are extremely comfortable.  Their temperature sensitivity allows them to mold to the contours of your body and reduce pressure points.  There is no more flopping around needed to get comfortable, but if you do change positions the memory foam “remembers” its original shape and gently readjusts to your body’s new position.  Does this mean it will work for you?  There’s only one way to find out — the in home trial.

Do not purchase a memory foam mattress from any retailer unless they give you at least 180 days to try it in your own home.  If you don’t like it, you need to be able to get your money back.  Don’t settle on store credit or “comfort” guarantee (just a tricky way of saying you are getting a store credit).  Those two terms mean that if you don’t like your mattress you don’t get your money back, but instead have to find another mattress at the same store.  This can mean you are out a lot of money and still don’t have a mattress you like.

Bottom line:  Only deal with mattress retailers that allow you to try your mattress at home for at least 180 days and give you your money back if the mattress doesn’t work for you.
