    Dude I work for mattress firm we don’t even carry tempur because they literally do everything you just said. Also fun fact our beauty rest come from the manufacture it’s why their reps visit our stores Macy’s and pennies are produced in house built when you order they are different from the fact the franchise the names....

    My wife and I bought a large firm futon from a local company that manufactures their own mattresses. It is by far and away the best surface either of us has ever slept on. Firm, but not hard, no springs to deal with, and when one of us rolls over, the other doesn't feel it and the bed doesn't creak. Well worth the 1000 CAD we spent on it.

    Also, if you think all mattresses are the SAME on the inside... you're out of your mind. If you think a traditional steel coil mattress will affect your back the same as a pocketed coil, or even a combination memory foam + pocketed coil... you have no idea what you're talking about. There's a huge difference in these materials and how they affect the pressure points in your body. There's a reason a coil mattress will only be a few hundred dollars, while a memory foam or purple is thousands. Sure, memory foam mattress A might be similar to memory foam mattress B... but those are WORLDS DIFFERENT from a traditional spring coil mattress. I'm speaking from experience. Also, if you sleep hot... there's a lot of cooling tech that can help you sleep better... but I guess it's all the same? Suuuuuuure it is.

    Well, this video is depressing. My Fiance is a mattress salesman, and I've been supporting him every step of the way. He works for a big company that rhymes with Mattress Film... and he loves it. He tries really hard to do a good job. He knows everything about the products. He's a manager, and he works really hard to get people good deals... it is literally our livelihood. The sad thing is a bunch of customers treat him like a scam artist, when he's working his hardest to actually provide good service. The industry may be shiesty, but honestly a lot of these salespeople and managers are good people just trying to make a living. They know how people see them-- "shady"-- and work really hard to gain trust and do a good job... to undo that stereotype. He knows everything about foams, spring types, etc. and can tell you why and how they're different. He works really hard at it. This video just makes me really sad. He's the best person I know in the entire world, not a scam artist... and we were lucky to find this company too because it pays really well, provides benefits, and nice vacation. I hope some people take this video with a grain of salt, because this really isn't true for some salespeople.

    Please go buy your mattress from a mom and pop type store. It's usually the same stuff, slightly less expensive and at least you're buying from the folks that own the store.

    If he did a little more research and wrote a few less clever comments, hed see that yes department stores are a rip-off, and they do jack up prices for no reason. However, if you look through the products, you will find they are actually different mattresses. Adam ruins actually teaching us something by not do enough research

    This is why I get my mattresses for cheap, under a bridge by a barrel fire (oh those stains? Its called patina. Its sleepytime nanobots, thats why its itchy) or at Ikea. Ikea makes ok, reasonable stuff - the prices come from the immense global scale, meaning its good economics to cut out _all_ the middle players, and own the whole raw material, processing, manufacturing, logistics and sales chain themselves. Which means they don't have to up charge absurdly much to make a decent profit. Flatpacks and vacuumbagging save billions on logistics and space/storage, and selling eg. 20-30 million mattresses a year, with a selection of maybe 20-25 different sku's, they can make reasonable quality units and sell them at a very competitive price, while still raking in billions. Oh and last time I bought a mattress there, they gave 25y warranty and a whole year of free return&exchange. On a $120 mattress. I mean, most places don't give a single second of return(&replace) on _any_ bedware or other "hygiene goods", unless the thing is has manufacture defects or stuff like that. Being able to test it for months at home, kinda changes the game (suggest using a moisture-proof lining under your bed sheet if you think you might be taking advantage of that, I can imagine they might get s bit fuzzy if you return it full of stains (its not like they're gonna resell it, but at that point you've significantly damaged the thing, meaning they can't donate it to goodwill or anything like that, maybe not even recycle the materials. Same thing for pretty much things things they sell. While I only get _some_ things there, the scale and simplicity can afford them to do things affordable, environmentally sustainable, all the while being recognized even by Forbes, as one of the best employers around.

    People buy bed in the box anymore and not from the big stores. Why ? There mattresses are so over priced they are not worth buying. They dont last and they want thousands of dollars for them. Better to buy a cheap mattress off amazon. Retailers shoot themselves in the foot by pricing themselves out of buisness.

    I worked in the mattress industry for 5 years. Your best bet is to find a mattress you like at a mattress store, ask them for the mattress specifications, and then find a mattress with similar specifications at Costco or Sam's Club. You'll get the best price possible and a good night's sleep. Done and done.
