Should you buy a mattress on Amazon or direct from a manufacturer?

We typically recommend buying a mattress direct from the manufacturer, rather than via third-party sites such as Amazon and Walmart. This is because of the benefits – manufacturers typically offer better sleep trials and warranties. However, when the price is right and you know what mattress you want, buying a mattress from Amazon can get you a big discount.

Mattresses on Amazon typically have a returns period, but they often lack a proper mattress trial. This means that while you might have 30 days to return the bed, it must be in the same condition – it can't be out of the packaging and slept on. 

However, many mattresses on Amazon are covered by the manufacturer's warranty. So if there's a fault with the bed, you are able to return it. Before buying a mattress form Amazon, make sure to read the fine print, so you know exactly what your rights are if something goes wrong.
