What You Get When You Buy A Mattress

When you buy that mattress, who you buy it from has everything to do with the cost of the mattress, and the price. If a retailer has a warehouse and keeps a lot of stock, that stock has a cost. And warehousing it has a cost, as does transporting it and handling it. That is on top of the price they paid from the manufacturer. Then you have the rent, the utilities, the commercials, the commission they pay the my estimation, when you buy from a big retail operation like this, you get about $50-$75 worth of mattress for every $1000 you pay at retail. Is it any wonder then that the mattress wears out after just a few years?

Crack A Window To Help You Sleep

About Foam Density

How does the density of Bed In A Box's memory foam compare to others?

(Taken from a recent e-mail to BedinaBox) 

"I have been reading reviews of density for memory foam mattresses and many of them say that 4 to 6 lbs of density makes for better quality memory foam and will stand up longer/better. I read on your website about this high density not being as good due to hotter sleep and longer to bounce back. I am a little confused about which way to go. Can you help me out with this? Why is it that yours is 3lbs when just about everything out there on the market is 4-6lbs?"
