What Our Shopping.com Rating and Testimonials Mean


Shopping.Com – Why We Use Their Consumer Testimonial Database For Our Web Business


Shopping.Com’s testimonial database, powered by Epinions, is a trusted, well known source for unbiased reviews of consumer’s shopping and product experiences with a given retailer. Because of the nature of our business, in which our products are offered strictly on-line (no ability for the consumer to try out our products prior to purchase), we really needed a mechanism for consumers to be able to review honest and unbiased testimonials of our products. Also, we wanted customers to see reviews based on customer service experiences that our past customers have had. We take pride in our customer service, and really try to differentiate ourselves from other web retailers in this area.

Your Memory Foam Mattress – How Long Will it Last

Question: Your Memory Foam Mattress – How Long Will it Last?

Answer: There’s alot of skepticism out there with consumers regarding mattresses and how long they’ll actually be supportive and comfortable before breaking down over time. Cheaper pillow top and foam mattresses can break down after only several months to a few years, with the customer being stuck with the mattress either because of a bad or non-existent manufacturer’s warranty or a poorly defined return policy from the retailer. We hear this quite a bit from potential customers. We’re consumers ourselves, and really wanted to find a product that can stand the test of time, while offering an extremely fair manufacturer’s warranty and generous customer trial period. Our mattress, the 10″ memory foam mattress, truly fit the bill for what we wanted to present to our customers. The manufacturer of our mattress performs high pressure, long term roll tests with 330 lb press rollers, simulating 20 years of use. The memory foam and core foam layers of our mattress react to the stress of the test extremely well, barely showing compression (less than 1/4″ remaining compression) issues from the pressure testing. Because of this and the high quality foams and fabric used in the composition of our mattress, the manufacturer offers a 10 year, non-prorated warranty. Because of our success with selling the mattress, we’ve been able to extend our no questions asked money back trial period to a full year (we’ve been offering this for about a year now). Basically, a combination that is unmatched (at least that we’ve seen) in the industry.

Recommended Foundation Types for a Memory Foam Mattress

Question or Title: Recommended Foundation Types for a Memory Foam Mattress

Answer: This is a question we get all the time. Memory foam mattresses, in general, require a solid, uniform foundation, like a wood slat foundation with a board (typically cardboard or fiberboard) over the slats, a posture box foundation (basically a wooden frame with a flat top, covered with a nice fabric cover, and typically made of pine or a similar hardwood, covered with some type of particle board), a platform bed or a newer box spring (less than 10 years old, with a rigid, firm spring system – referred to in the industry as foundations these days, rather than box springs). All of these foundation systems are ideal for memory foam mattresses.

Does Density Affect How Hot Memory Foam is To Sleep On?

Our question for today is:

Will a lower density foam or higher density foam be hotter to sleep on?


Boy, that is a tough question. I can’t say I have a definitive answer for you. We’ve tested a lot of memory foams, and talked with many manufacturers about this issue, but I’ve never heard that density is the issue here. Instead, I think that it is more dependant on the particular characteristics of that memory foam.

Moving Around On a Memory Foam Mattress

We are starting a new series of posts answering some of the questions we’ve been getting that people are having a hard time finding answers to.

Today’s question is:

How easy is it [a memory foam mattress] to move around during the night…or for other activities?


It really depends on the type of memory foam used in making the mattress. We had this issue come up fairly often when we sold the “leading brand” of memory foam many years ago. This was because their memory foam is dense and firm at room temperature – and softens a great deal when in contact with your body (your body temperature softens the foam). So where you sleep is soft, but the foam over the rest of the bed stays firm. For some people, they felt it was difficult to roll over or move on the mattress because they would be kind of cocooned in the soft foam.
