Buying a Mattress:
There is a lack of transparency in the mattress industry, which makes it difficult to compare price, quality, and value. At The Original Mattress Factory, we strive to provide a better mattress shopping experience for you: a quality product at an excellent price every day. Our factory-direct business model means we can cut out the middle man and pass those savings on to you. We never have sales, so you’re never pressured to buy on any given day. You’re encouraged to buy when you’re ready, and you always receive the best price.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN SHOPPING:
Comfort is important, but construction is, too.
The first step is to find some mattresses that feel good to you. Then you’ll want to find out exactly what’s inside of those mattresses so that you can properly compare price, quality, and value. If you don’t know what the mattress is made of, you won’t know if you’re getting a good value.
At The Original Mattress Factory, we have cutaways of every one of our mattresses so that you can see exactly what’s inside. We’re also happy to take you into our factory to show you how our mattresses are made.
Buying a set can save you money in the long run.
Sometimes, mattress shoppers will try to save money by purchasing just the mattress. While this is an option, it is important to know that mattresses and box springs are designed to work together. If one is worn out, the other probably is, too. Putting a new mattress on an old box spring might seem like a quick fix, but your new mattress will conform to any weak areas in your old box spring. This could impact the comfort, support, and durability of your brand new mattress.
At The Original Mattress Factory, we pair our mattresses with real, shock-absorbing box springs to increase the performance and durability of your mattress. You can purchase the mattress and box springs separately, if you prefer, but buying as a set is less expensive in the long run.
Be wary of long-term financing.
Many mattress retailers advertise their long-term, interest-free financing — often for periods of five years or longer. In order to offer such long terms, retailers build the added cost of financing into the already-inflated price of the mattress.
At The Original Mattress Factory, we don’t offer long-term financing because we believe in transparency and honest pricing. While we do offer both six-month and twelve-month financing options (minimum purchase levels apply), we don’t feel it’s right to go beyond that. We want you to get a great bed that you can actually afford — and you can at The Original Mattress Factory.
Watch out for pricing games.
These are common in the mattress industry because the same core price points have been around for decades. Unfortunately, mattress manufacturers and retailers have reduced quality in order to retain these core price points. Since the average customer is only in the market for a mattress every five to 10 years, they are usually unaware of these hidden changes. The key is to shop smart and ask plenty of questions before you make a purchase.
The Original Mattress Factory offers better-quality products at honest, factory-direct prices because we have eliminated the middleman and all associated costs and markups. We can show you what is inside of every mattress, and we clearly post our prices so that you can shop and compare.
