Around Christmas of last year, my mother asked that I help her pick out a mattress. Immediately, visions of long hours in multiple mattress stores, haggling with salespeople, filled my head. The reason it’s so difficult to price shop at mattress stores is on purpose. Practically each store has model names created for them simply to prevent you from comparing prices.

Years ago, mattress stores were the best way to find everything you need to get the perfect night’s sleep; however, times have changed. Now we can find the perfect mattress online – easily obtaining all the information we need to decide which is the perfect mattress for us.

Below, we have listed five great mattresses you can order online today, with prices so good that they could put mattress stores out of business.


Tuft & Needle Queen Mattress, Bed in a Box

When the mattress first arrived, about three day after ordering it on Amazon (including a Sunday), I was impress by the novelty of it – a queen-sized mattress – in a box. Sure enough, after removing it from the box and unwrapping it from the excessive plastic, it expanded into a primo human-sized mattress. It’s of a good quality, is made of adaptive foam, and somehow includes a “100-night sleep trial” – so you can rest assured knowing you made the right choice with no risks.


LUCID 10-Inch Queen Hybrid Mattress

This is an affordable mattress for a queen-sized bed, offering the expected comfort and quality of all good mattresses, but with a little extra. This mattress offers some unique health and sleep related benefits that are not commonly found in most mattresses, this is mostly thanks to the bamboo charcoal and aloe vera infusions within the mattress. Together, these extra aspects help to pull moisture away from the skin, eliminate odors and overall help to provide you with a more relaxing space for you to get a better night’s sleep.

This mattress makes use of 21 internal air coils offering added durability and support throughout the night. This mattress also features a uniquely designed one click pump, allowing you to inflate or deflate the best with minimal effort, allowing you to enjoy tailored comfort, all night long.


Zinus Memory Foam 6-Inch Green Tea Mattress

Making use of the latest in memory foam and BioFoam technology, this mattress brings you the ultimate comfort. This mattress is made using a special type of memory foam- green tea memory foam, which is designed to bring you many similar health benefits as drinking green tea, including reduced stress levels, better respiratory functions and most importantly, better sleep.


LINENSPA 10-Inch Memory Foam and Innerspring Hybrid Mattress

The final mattress on our list is the LINENSPA Twin memory foam and innerspring hybrid mattress. This mattress takes the best of two famous mattress styles and brings all their benefits directly to you. The bottom part of the mattress is made of inner tightly coiled springs, bringing a firm yet comfortable surface for you to relax on, while the small 1.5-inch layer of memory foam helps the mattress to form around you as you sleep, bringing you the ultimate surface for comfort.


Whichever choice you make, think of all the time and frustration you save from skipping the trip and having your mattress delivered instead.
