The most frustrating thing about any mattress is the price. Don’t get me wrong, there can be many frustrating things about mattresses. But this is one thing they all share. Not too many mattresses for the money out there.
It’s hard to imagine a free mattress unless it’s charity, and even then someone has to have bought it in the past. Every mattress costs something, whether it’s a good or bad one. Most of the best luxury mattresses certainly are.
And that is why this review is so needed.
Price is Not All
Price indeed is not all. One can charge ten thousand dollars for a throw-away mattress, and that’s not going to change the fact the mattress is crappy, to say the least. A luxurious mattress with a silk cover might have a laughable price, but in fact, be worth an arm and a leg.
Price and quality are often related to each other to some degree, but not always are they consistent.
Is This Review on the Cheapest Mattresses?
It is not.
We’ve already found out price is not all.
Now, we’re talking about best mattress for the money. And that means the best money can buy, except with limited budget. The cheapest mattresses are not necessarily good. And an expensive mattress might actually be… well, not good.
This is a review on cheap mattresses, not necessarily cheapest.
The price I base my reasoning on does include potential discounts. Some of the products I’m writing about are by no means cheap without discounts, but with them, they would have the potential to be considered “for the money”.
In the event the product is currently too expensive for you, I suggest that you wait until a discount comes up.
Top 5 Best Mattress For the Money
I’ve already opened a list with this same mattress. Well, I cannot say it didn’t deserve it. While not the best of the best, this latex mattress is a good one. Its price is also relatively low, that is why this mattress is included into the top at all.
So, why only the fifth place? Well, this is a latex mattress, and it is expensive. Of course, Price Is Not All, but in this instance, it’s not really countered by anything.
The Twin Size mattress will cost you almost more expensive than you’d expect from a mattress for the money. Much more than that in fact but if you get lucky, that might only seem like a lot since cheap mattresses would be about a hundred dollars or two. But consider this: latex mattresses are crazily expensive. Well, to those who think so, a few hundred dollars would be a reduced price. The starting price is well above a thousand in many online stores. And that’s Twin Size!
All in all, the mattress comes in 6 sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King. California King, by the way, would cost you almost a thousand if you get a good discount and if you don’t, this mattress will not be the best choice. That’s not cheap. But, as I’ve already said, it’s a latex mattress. It’s hypoallergenic and anti-microbial.
The mattress also comes in 4 comfort levels: Firm, Cushion Firm, Plush/Medium, and Ultra Plush/Soft. Aside from those, there also is a “5th comfort level” available on Amazon.com, but it’s an option to consult their expert rather than an actual mattress. So if you’re yet to make up your mind, feel free to visit Amazon.com and pick that option.
The mattress is 10 inches thick, with the latex layer being 3 inches thick. It comes with a stretchy bamboo cover. The base layer is made of high-density polyurethane foam which provides perfect support.
- Varying comfort levels
- Bamboo cover
- Made in the U.S.A.
- Sagging possible
- Possibility of hot sleeping
With this mattress, the Twin-Size would cost you a little above average if you get a discount. Without one, it might cost around a thousand in online stores. Not something many people are ready to pay, even for a memory foam mattress. And, yes, this is a memory foam mattress, with everything this entails.
Reacting to your body pressure? Check! Molding under your body heat? Check! Conforming to your body? Check!
This is honest to goodness memory foam, folks. It’s just that cheap. And this mattress comes in eleven sizes: Twin, Full, Queen, King, California King, Full XL, Twin XL, Queen RV, RV Short King, Split Calking, and Split King. Incidentally, Split Calking is the most expensive item. Even with a discount, it might cost at least several hundreds, but without one, it is worth several thousands. Yeah, memory foam is not cheap either. Generally, that is. Here and now it only costs under a thousand. Don’t waste your time and order it on Amazon.com.
A few things I have to say if you are not convinced yet.
If you buy this, you would be given a 120 days trial, unlike the usual 30 days. Besides, the mattress comes with two gel pillows, which, otherwise, would cost you a hundred each. And there is a thirty years warranty on top of that.
The mattress has 4 layers. There is the basic foam support layer, 5 inches thick, two Cool Airflow layer, each 2 inches thick, and, finally, there is the top memory foam layer. The Cool Airflow prevents hot sleeping and the memory foam proper makes your sleeping experience magnificent.
- CertiPUR-US certified
- Comes with a fireproof removable cover
- Comes with 2 free gel pillows
- 4-layer construction
- 120-day trial
- 30 years warranty
- Retains heat
- May be a little bit too soft
It might not be the cheapest choice in general, but only if you decide to buy the thicker mattress. As it is, however, the 6-inches Twin Size mattress would cost you a little over a couple of hundred dollars in online stores.
That does it, does it not?
And the best part is it’s not even with a discount! Well, there can be a discount, of course, but that only means that the mattress might cost you even less. And it doesn’t even smell all that much.
If had to nominate a mattress as the budget mattress of the year, I would have done it. Don’t waste your time and order it on Amazon.com.
There is a downside, of course. Due to being so cheap, the mattress does not handle being packed too well. It’s only acceptable to let it be packed for about 72 hours. Any longer than that and the mattress might suffer some severe deformations. Permanent deformations.
So be advised.
- Easy to set up
- Inflates relatively fast
- Comfortable on any surface
- Possibility of hot sleeping
- Thin memory foam layer
So, why does it take a higher place?
That would be due to the mattress quality.
I had to write a review on this mattress time and again. Don’t misunderstand me, I’m quite knowledgeable of mattresses of any kind, but this one is special. It’s like I know it by heart. And you know what? It deserves it.
The 8 inches might not seem much for any of memory foam or latex choosers. But it’s different with springs, I assure you. Springs are by nature a sturdier material compared to foams of any kind. So don’t make a mistake, this mattress is fully capable of providing you with much needed back support.
The coils are isolated in order to eliminate motion transfer. You don’t have to be disturbed by your partner’s movements. So don’t be. And the mattress is still bouncy.
The only potential issue with the spring is that their hardness is uniform. Therefore, the springs at the edges tend to collapse when pressure is applied to them (since the springs at the middle of the mattress are not sat on). There are more than 4,000 reviews on Amazon.com, so don’t hesitate to read them now.
- Meets Federal Flammability Standard CFR1633
- Provides perfect support
- Delivered to the door
- Elimination of motion disturbance
- Edges give in
It’s a coincidence, but one that should have been expected.
“But hey,” you may ask me, “isn’t that the mattress you’ve called expensive?”
I did. But it was expensive back then. Now, though? Now the Twin Size mattress might be afforded for a third of its normal price if a discount is available. Even without one, it is still under a thousand in online stores.
That’s more expensive than some of the mattresses on this very list, I admit. But it’s not just about the price. The mattress has a 2.5-icnh memory foam later and a support layer made of unique support high-density foam. Of course, the product is made in America and CertiPUR-US certified.
The mattress is heavy and unwieldy, but it can be stored almost indefinitely with no damage made to its structure. It’s a perfect choice for those who wants to move out and thus is ordering a mattress beforehand. With this mattress, you can do just that and leave it packed until you need it. So if that sounds appealing to you, make your order on Amazon.com now!
- Highly comfortable
- Easily removable cover
- CertiPUR-US certified
- Made in the U.S.A.
- Hard to move around
Price is not something constant. A mattress that has been expensive and unaffordable for years can suddenly become somewhat cheaper. Something you can buy and put on your bed. But for that, you have to be well-informed.
Of course, you can watch one single product you like hoping it would become cheaper. It might. But it might never just as easily. You cannot be sure.
But that what people like me are for. I’m doing this work for you. I’m constantly watching the best mattresses and their prices. And I’m writing about them. So, don’t worry! You can always get help from me.
