I know websites coming under different brand names but owned by the same owner. These sites claim to be “experts” with fake profiles and images taken from shutterstock as their profile photos.
Afterwards, they provide false reviews placing the most frequently sold products on the top of their list to ensure that they generate the most money out of it.
Here’s the kicker: They never even touch the product in the first place! And using good SEO practices, they make it show up on the top search results.
Nothing but hot air. And they’re making millions out of it.

All I can say is shop off-brands there cheaper better quality and no hoops to jump through if something goes wrong with the mattress. Also shop at mom and pop shops they will do anything to keep a good name in there community.

... aren't you supposed to try the mattress yourself before buying? Some people need softer ones, some need firmer.

The reason why mattresses are such a rip off is because it's not something you buy often. People keeps mattresses for 10~ years so the retail is much higher then the cost to make it. I worked at a furniture store as a sales person and mattresses had like 200 dollar spiff for a 1500 dollars mattresses. Im not disagreeing it's a rip off but it's kinda justified.

Growing up, my family always found mattresses at yard sales or outside of peoples house with a big old sign on it that said "FREE". Weve never gotten a dirty mattress and have always found very comfortable and clean ones. We still do this, and to this day have never bought a mattress in a store and have saved thousands of dollars :)

Just buy the purple matress it's 100, with a grid like design and the firmness to cradel pressure points but the softness to not break a raw egg it's the best of comfort and practicality combined.

Just buy one of those mattresses that are just a slab of sponge inside. They super cheep and if you sleep in roughly the same spot, will over time become nice and soft on that area.

People are gonna take this the wrong way, because that's what they do. Lying on an 80 bucks piece of foam still isn't just as good as sleeping on a quality mattress, and will ruin your health. You don't need a 1000-2000 bucks mattress, but you do need an actual good one.

The last time I was mattress shopping I already had a nifty, incredibly
inexpensive, 22" high inflatable queen size bed in a box in my trunk. I
decided to check out a large mattress store before breaking open and
trying the cheap bed out but couldn't find any sales people in the
store. I finally found a lady sleeping in a recliner behind a desk in
the middle of the store. It was hard to wake her because she was using
headphones. She finally showed me a mattress I had seen advertised and
pointed out the fact that it was crap. I told her I was driving around
with the new inflatable bed in the car and she advised that I was better
off to keep that one. That was more than one year ago and I am very
pleased that I did.

Mattresses really have gotten better, though. You don't see waterbeds much anymore because memory foam is almost as good, and less trouble to maintain.

I've slept on a large piece of cushion foam from the craft store with a lawn chair cushion on top. Did fine for me. No need for a heavy mattress.

I actually had a good experience with my recent mattress shopping. I went to a Mattress Firm three times. The first time, an employee showed me around the store and had me try out different mattresses. I went home to think things over. When I went back, I decided to get the Original Purple Mattress. Two guys delivered the mattress and a new platform to my third floor apartment and hauled away my old mattress and box spring (for a reasonable fee). After a few weeks, I decided the Purple wasn't working out for me. I went back Mattress Firm, at which time they had me try out different mattresses to see what might be a better fit for me. I decided on a Kingsdown Passions mattress. And even though it was priced $100 higher than the Purple, they knocked that $100 off so that I would have an even exchange. A few days later, two guys brought the Kingsdown mattress up to my apartment and took away the Purple one -- at no extra delivery/pickup charge. It was a nice experience all the way around.
I'm sorry that some people have had bad mattress shopping experiences, but that just wasn't the case with me.

I hope Adam makes an episode called, Adam ruins the video game industry or Adam ruins Fortnite!
I did my own research on layering densities of foam and made my own mattress for 1/4 the cost using supplies from the foam factory.

Adam states you can not test a mattress that you buy online first and that's false. almost every company offers a try before you buy option... Like most of his videos, some of the stuff is true but they gloss over things that are false and don't expect you to question it just in the attempt for content. shame on me for actually clicking on this video.

To be fair most mattress buyers can't be helped, when you suggest a softer mattress for a lighter person they tutt and try the one made for folks over 16st/101kgs. Its really not that difficult, you pick the one which follows your backs shape when you lie on it, if there's a gap or serious pressing move on to the next.
also the memory mattresses you see on social media are complete garbage. No support and just awful to lie on.

I bought my matress for 800$ and the next year was able to get the same exact one for my mom for 400$
I would feel like I have been scammed, however they are the best sleep I have ever had and I suppose the average is having spent 600$ on each, pretty worthwhile.
