There are currently hundreds of “bed-in-a-box” companies competing for market share, and it seems like new companies are popping up every day.
Snuggle-Pedic is best known for their incredibly comfortable shredded memory foam pillows, but they recently entered the online mattress space with a dual layer memory foam mattress.
I especially liked that the mattress was easy to set up, there was virtually no initial odor, and the memory foam breathed well.
Though the Snuggle-Pedic Mattress is relatively expensive for memory foam (currently $999.99 for a queen on Amazon), you can try it risk-free for four months and its backed by a 20-year warranty.
Would you commit to sleeping with someone every night for the next 20 years after just talking to them for 10 minutes? Probably not. Yet, this is essentially what you are asked to do at a mattress store. A high-pressure salesperson tries to get you to commit to a long-lasting product after lying on it for 5 to 10 minutes. The bed-in-a-box industry seeks to put an end to this practice with its risk-free trial periods.
Anyone can try the Snuggle-Pedic Mattress risk-free for four months. If you decide you don’t like the mattress, Snuggle-Pedic will arrange to have a charity pick it up, and they’ll refund your money. I was already a fan of the Snuggle-Pedic body pillow when they asked me if I’d like to try their mattress for free. Here’s my experience with it.
My first experiences with the Snuggle-Pedic Mattress
The Snuggle-Pedic Mattress came in a box about the size of a mini fridge. I liked that the company included a letter opener to make it easy to remove the plastic wrap without fear of accidentally cutting the mattress. In under 10 minutes, I had the plastic removed, and the bed was expanding to its full 10-inch-thick size.
Though I didn’t have any trouble, others might have a difficult time handling the 70 pounds of bed. Unfortunately, Snuggle-Pedic doesn’t have an answer for that yet. They don’t offer “white glove” delivery or setup.
I’ve unboxed more than my fair share of memory foam products, and they almost always have an odor that dissipates after a few days. The Snuggle-Pedic mattress had no odor. I asked Jennie Katz, a representative for Snuggle-Pedic, what their trick was, and she told me that they don’t do anything special to lessen the smell. Instead, “they] use a very high-quality foam that uses a process that is far cleaner than the foam used by competitors.”
Katz also recommended that I set up the bed on a firm, level surface, such as a platform, box spring, or other similar foundation. We used a cheap Zinus frame, which fit the bill, but I would recommend spending a few more bucks on something that will keep the mattress in place.
