How can I get the best deal on my new mattress?

•  Take your time

Most manufacturers don’t offer a guarantee on comfort, so it’s best to spend time lying on the showroom mattress to ensure confidence in your new purchase. There are a few brands that do offer a comfort guarantee, so it always pays to ask.

•  Don’t shop tired

All the mattresses will feel great when you’re already sleepy!

•  Don’t get sucked in by sales jargon

Words like “orthopaedic” don’t mean very much, unless they come with accreditation from a proper medical association. If you have a bad back, it’s believed that a medium-firm mattress is better than a firm mattress.

•  Measure up

If you’re buying a new mattress but keeping your old base, measure them both to make sure they fit well together – some mattresses aren’t consistent with the sizing above.
