10 Secrets to buying a mattress
Don't wait too long to replace your mattress. When people experience trouble sleeping or wake up achy, they tend to blame their aging bodies... stress... or outside distractions, such as noise. In fact, the first suspect should be the mattress.
A common rule of thumb is to replace a mattress every eight to 10 years, but the only true gauge should be your ability to get a good night's sleep.
Never pay retail for a Mattress. The furniture industry is a secretive, closed community. They jealously guard against you or anyone else discovering wholesale cost information. This enables furniture retailers to:
Charge more for their merchandise.
Completely ignore the actual cost of an item when figuring a selling price and
Make it more difficult for the average shopper to make price comparisons.
Buy Below Wholesale. You can still have a high quality Mattress such as Sealy Posturepedic and other Name Brand Mattresses for prices that won’t make you cringe. We at Utah Mattress Outlet offer name brand high Quality Mattresses at 50-75% below retail.
Watch out for the extra costs. Mattress retailers often offer free delivery – NOT REALLY (You pay for it in the cost of the Mattress). Utah Mattress Outlet offers delivery at reasonable rates.
Test a Mattress before buying. Even if you plan to buy over the phone or online, try out a mattress at a showroom. Lie on it for at least 10 minutes. This might seem excessive, but it takes that long to get an accurate gauge. Just don’t go after a big meal.
Be Wary of the Name Game. When buying a Mattress if you are trying to find the same mattress in other places you need to know this - Mattress manufacturers will sell the same mattress to different stores under different names. So learn the features of the mattress that you are looking for so you can compare at other locations. Also remember some stores have built in costs to all mattresses like delivery etc. (Secret #4)
Make sure the retailer has its own Return Policy. Utah Mattress Outlet has a 48 Hour Comfort exchange and a 30 Day warranty against structural defects. If you mattress isn’t comfortable and you purchased a mattress protector bring it back and we will find a comfortable mattress that works for you. If you find that your mattress is defective bring it back and we will exchange your mattress or give you a store credit.
You Deserve it! Have you always thought a mattress is a mattress, because it was cost prohibitive to buy a High End mattress? Come and experience the life of comfort. At Utah Mattress Outlet you can have that Deluxe Top of the Line mattress at a cost that would normally only purchase you the basic model.
Don’t Pay for the Retail Overhead of Most Stores. At Utah Mattress Outlet you are getting the same quality and name brand mattresses as you would at a retail store. We keep our overhead low and pass the savings on to our customers. Come see us at one of our six locations in Utah and Idaho
Know your choices. Mattress buyers now have a range of excellent options that were not widely available a decade ago. The best choices...
Memory FOAM MATTRESSES
A memory foam (viscoelastic foam) mattress may feel too firm when you first lie down, but give it a few minutes. Soon your body heat and weight will cause billions of tiny "memory cells" within the mattress to adjust to your contours, comfortably cradling your body. The body-hugging technology was developed by NASA.
These were considered the height of luxury, particularly in the South, before the latex shortages of World War II.
In recent years, they have made a comeback. Many people find the unique combination of softness and support extremely comfortable.
They're a perfect choice for people with allergies because latex mattresses are naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial and thus won't harbor dust mites. (Of course, they're not appropriate for people who are allergic to latex.)
TRADITIONAL COIL MATTRESSES
Simmons Beautyrest. Great for couples. Simmons's "individually pocketed coils" isolate movement, so one partner isn't disturbed if the other tosses and turns. Remember, the commercial with the glass of wine and the bowling ball being dropped on the mattress, you will love the feel of these mattresses.
