Buying a Mattress in the 21st Century

If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re ready to buy a new mattress. So where do you start? When buying a new mattress, you have a choice between two options. Most people are more familiar with the traditional brick-and-mortar purchasing route: you go to a bunch of stores, talk to some sales people, and lie on a bunch of mattresses. But the other choice is online, and that represents a radical change that more and more people are picking.

Today, our lives are busier than ever, running from meeting to meeting, dropping children off at practice, making time to exercise, while still trying to have a social life. As a result, online shopping has become the future of consumer purchasing because it’s easy! No leaving home, no talking to annoying sales people, and you can make your purchase with just a few clicks.

The Wave of Online Mattresses

The 21st century is saying goodbye to buying mattresses in stores and saying hello to online mattress shopping. Items big and small, expensive and cheap and everything in between now can be bought online, including large products like a mattress. With the rise of online mattress retailers, it is obvious that this is the future of mattress buying, so it’s time for you to join the trend!

A Revolution of the Mattress Industry

These online mattress companies have one goal: to fix everything that was wrong with the mattress industry. Before online mattress shopping, comparison shopping was next to impossible because all mattresses felt the same. Shoppers would wander through aisles  of overpriced mattresses (essentially identical) and lie on a few samples while a sales clerk tried to convince them that each mattress was perfect!  People were shopping based solely on price not quality  so they would not end up getting their best sleep.

Exceptional Mattresses, Even Better Prices

So how did the online mattress industry revolutionize mattress shopping? By saying yes to quality and no to high prices, which provided a convenient alternative to the traditional, high-end mattress. So how do they get their prices so low? Exclusively online mattress companies, like PangeaBed, make their beds in the U.S.A., and ship the mattress straight from the manufacturer to you! This solution cuts costs associated with in-store mattresses, which are usually marked up to 12 times, include importing the mattress, paying the sales commission and the middle men, and adding on the wholesaler’s profit. By buying online, you not only get an exceptional quality mattress; you get a mattress at the best price.

A Focus on Better Sleep

Instead of stocking a bunch of different mattresses, these online mattress retailers have one mattress that works for everyone. The online mattress market is focused on giving you the best sleep possible. Instead of using the same old combination of foam that every single mattress in stores have, these innovative online mattress companies started using materials that really help people get a better night's sleep. No springs, no egg-crate foam  you no longer pay for empty space!  Online mattress companies have designed unique mattresses that are the best for every type of sleeper.

Better Sleep is Just a Click Away

Above all, mattress shopping has become easy. You don’t have to go to a bunch of different stores. You can shop whenever you want right from home, without pushy sales people. Not only can you research every mattress brand to find the best mattress for you, you can see customer reviews on every mattress. If you have questions about a product, you can go to online chats on the mattress company's website so you can speak directly to a representative in real-time who can answer any question you may have, not push for a sale! With just a few clicks, you can purchase the mattress just right for you, and within a week it will be shipped right to your door. Most of these mattresses that you buy online are rolled up and compressed into a box so it’s easy for you to bring it into your bedroom. You no longer have to worry about navigating a huge unwieldy mattress through your narrow halls or up a steep flight of stairs!

Sleep Trial

Ordering a mattress online without trying it may sound risky. How do you know if you’ll even like it, and what happens if you don’t? Are you getting the right sized mattress? These online mattress retailers often offer sleep trials, which allow you to try the bed out for a certain number of nights, and let you return it if the mattress isn’t for you. But most people who take the risk of ordering their mattress online without trying it end up being more than satisfied with their purchase. High risk, high reward, right?!

Yes, that was a lot to take in so let’s break it down. It’s the 21st century; the best place to buy a mattress is online. Here’s why:

  • Higher quality, lower cost
  • The company cares about your sleep, not its profit
  • It’s SO easy
  • Chat with representatives who are there to answer your questions
  • The mattress comes compressed and rolled up in a box – so it's easier for you to move
  • Try it out, and if you don’t like it, send it back


We understand buying a mattress online is anything but conventional, but the best way to get a high quality mattress at an exceptional price is right at your fingertips. So, step out of your comfort zone and shop at online mattress companies to get your best sleep ever on the most comfortable mattress you've ever had.
