Paying retail is like burning money

3 Ways YOU CAN GET SCREWED Buying a Retail Mattress

Millions of Americans are fed up with ridiculous mattress prices and are turning to online mattress company, Lull, to get a good night’s rest without breaking the bank (or a sweat). In a perfect world, chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream would help you lose weight, cars would fly, and a mattress wouldn’t cost you almost two month’s salary. Keep dreaming, right? After all, until recently the big-box stores have made buying a mattress seem like a nightmare. From ridiculous price markups to cheesy sales gimmicks, the truth is mattress retailers have been ripping us off for years. Here’s how. 1. You’re paying for way more than just a mattress. We all have heard the old saying, "you get what you pay for," and normally it is very true. Except where retail store mattresses are concerned. Between advertising costs, sales commissions, and wholesaler profits, you end up paying roughly 6-12 times what the mattress actually costs to make.

At that price markup, the mattress that you’re getting must be some amazing miracle product that helps you sprout wings, right? 2. You’re tricked into high-pressure sales tactics. The truth is, today’s retail mattress salespeople are the snake oil salesmen of old. They make empty promises, offer money-back guarantees that aren’t what they seem, and push you toward an expensive choice without you realizing. They try to get you to buy the newest and greatest in mattress innovation by confusing you with a gazillion layers of foam or gel to lie on in order to get a good night’s sleep. The truth is, the more layers your mattress has, the less air there is flowing through the material, resulting in more heat being produced. That means more tossing, turning, blanket throwing, pillow punching, and partner disturbing. To put it simply, more layers equals more misery. 3. Fancy schmancy names are distracting you from what — actually matters – a good night's sleep. EverFeel, Beauty Rest, Wonder Cloud. Wow, those sound great! They must be worth the thousands of dollars that you will have to shell out to take them home, right? Wrong. Decorative product names don’t offer you any miracles, just the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with well-rehearsed sales pitches. It comes down to quality: a good night’s sleep comes from a good mattress, not good gimmicks. Don’t fall for the real-life infomercials of the big-box mattress retailers. They’re just messing with your head.Take Back Your Sleep Overpaying for gimmicky mattresses has been the standard. Until now.
