I’m not going to lie, being a blogger has some perks. Like getting a free mattress to review!
Scott from Bear Mattress could not have reached out to me at a better time. The Husband and I were already planning on mattress shopping soon but we’ve been putting it off because, well, who likes to mattress shop?
Plus, we really don’t have the cash at the moment. I’m pinching every penny we do have for my travel aspirations next year. Without the conference, my yearly “salary” (if you want to call it that) plummeted and the gym job doesn’t even come close to covering the difference.
But that’s another story, this post isn’t about money. It’s about a mattress!
Yes, that IS a mattress in a box. I wouldn’t have believed it either!
The Bear Mattress has been engineered with both advanced foam and Celliant technologies. We worked with experts around the world to design a mattress that is universally comfortable, improves sleep quality and increases your energy. Sleep is as important to your performance in life as diet and exercise, and we believe the Bear Mattress will exceed your expectations and improve your life.
I was skeptical at first…
“Improve my life?”
It’s a mattress and comes in a box — how great can it be?
I decided to record our entire experience…
As you saw in the video our initial reaction after the first night was “thumbs up” and it’s still thumbs up!
Frankly, I can’t believe a mattress out of a box could be as comfortable as this. I’ve been sleeping like a rock lately with a lot a less waking up in the middle of the night. I can’t be sure it’s the mattress but it isn’t hurting, that’s for sure!
My only gripe with it seems so minor but it’s worth mentioning. I have an Ikea bed that happens to have a high frame around the entire mattress. When I sit on the edge of this mattress to, say, put on my socks, I tend to sink into that frame. I guess you can say the mattress’ outer edge isn’t as stable as a traditional mattress. However, lying on it I don’t notice any loss of structure, it’s just when you are on the very edge.
That’s honestly the only “con” I could come up with.
My “pro” list is much longer:
- Ships to your house
- Easy to set up
- Easy to move
- Sleeps cool
- Made in the USA
Part of my review includes a coupon code for you. Simply use the code RONI75 for $75 off through the end of October. I know buying a mattress online seems crazy but the coolest thing about this company is their 100 Night Trial. They offer free shipping and returns and a 10-year warranty. Not too shabby for a mattress shipped to your door!
I have to say this company seems like the real deal. The owner was super nice and I’ve really enjoyed working with them.
If you decide to give the mattress a try, you’ll have to let me know. I can’t be the only crazy person to have a mattress delivered to my house in a box. Or maybe that isn’t as crazy as it sound anymore. I mean, it is 2015.
Leave any questions in the comments and I’ll get them answered for you the best I can.
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. Bear Mattress sent me the mattress to review free of charge.
