It’s all good news when someone is trying to sell you on a product, isn’t it? This is the best, longest lasting, most packed with features, fairly priced one on the market, according to the salesman or company website. Even the testimonials from a company are all rosy.
So where can you get an actual review of the good, bad and ugly of a product? Say hello to the Internet, friends.
Hunt Down those Opinions
One of the great things about the Internet is the access to a wide array of information. If you bought a mattress 25 years ago, you may have had limited access to different opinions, relying just on family, friends and consumer review publications.
Then the Internet came around. Now you can find millions of mattress reviews online, and some websites verify a reviewer’s purchase to ensure that you are hearing from someone who actually bought the mattress.
Reviews can help you decide if a latex mattress is right for you or if another type of mattress may be a better option.
Look for reviewers who have the same sleeping position and mattress preference as you. If you are hoping to relieve specific aches and pains, look for someone who also suffers from neck or back pain. Finding someone who matches up with you is a good way to better understand if the mattress you are considering may work well for you.
Look Far and Wide
Gather as many opinions as you can and try as many mattresses as possible at stores. A mattress is a big purchase and a long-term investment that may last 10 to 15 years.
The right reviews can help you spend your money wisely and have an excellent mattress buying experience. As you look at reviews, watch for notes about the company’s customer service and if it honored the advertised policy and warranties.
