Buying a Memory Foam Mattress Online-image

Educated buyers do their research before making significant purchases. That means time spend comparing the many kinds, qualities and prices of products. The only way to do thorough research is on the Internet. You might think that is true for coffeepots but not mattresses. However, it is not only true for mattresses, it is more important since you will be literally joined at the hip with your mattress for one-third of your life.


  • You can research what materials go into a mattress and what difference it will make to your quality of sleep.
  • The Internet will inform you of what good quality is and what it is not.
  • There will be explanations about how each mattress interacts with your body.
  • You do not have to go home and measure your space-you are home.
  • Mattress prices are shown so you can compare and maybe find the moderate priced one is perfect for your needs.
  • Guarantees and warranties are easily read for meaning. You can save them on your computer for future reference.
  • When buying from an Internet store you will know if anything more is needed to set up your new bed. In particular, the depth needed for sheets and mattress protectors. It could also include foundations.
  • Once you have narrowed your choices down to two or three, read the reviews, good and bad. People have different expectations. You will learn a tremendous amount about what to expect from your new mattress.
  • Most Internet stores offer comfort warranties so you can return the mattress with free shipping if you are unhappy. Choose one of those just so you know you have an out.


  • You will not get to touch or lie on it before you buy. That does not tell you anything anyway.
  • Neither UPS nor FedEx will haul your old mattress away. Lasso it with duct tape and drag it out to the trash. Put a disposal sticker on it and done. Nothing difficult about that.

The satisfaction rate of those buying memory foam mattresses from Internet stores is 86%. A little research will explain the reason for such a high percentage.
