So you’re in the market for a new mattress. You’ve been to your local mattress dealer, you’ve laid on all their beds, and you still aren’t sure which one to purchase. After all, how can you tell after just a few seconds laying on a mattress with a salesperson breathing down your neck?
Then you see an ad online and realize you can buy a mattress online. That begs the question, though, how can buying a mattress online be better than in person? After all, now you don’t even get to lay on it for those precious seconds to see if your body likes it. What if…what if…what if those online companies offered a free trial period that allows you to send the mattress back if you aren’t satisfied?
Now we’re talking! See we’re in the market for a new mattress ourselves. After a thorough comparison of the top 3 online mattress dealers, we’ve made our choice – I’ll reveal what we chose at the bottom of this guide – but I want you to have the same comparison I did without all the work. Here you’ll find the price, warranty, claims, extras, shipping, and in-home trial comparisons for Purple, GhostBed, and Nectar Mattresses. Also, I would suggest reading this in-depth mattress comparison so you understand what to look for in each mattress. Then follow this deal guide for the Best Mattress Deals Online & In-Store.

Are you wondering which mattress we finally decided upon? Nectar Sleep had so many pros compared to the others that we couldn’t go with anyone but Nectar Sleep. The price was more in our range compared to Purple, and with a full year trial run how could we not? What really sealed the deal for me, however, was their bed bug resistant claim. We’ve never had bed bugs thank goodness, and I never want to have them.
