    Well mattresses aren't exactly a regular purchase, so to stay in buisness off course they'll need a big markup, or else it's gonna end up like everything else and you'll need to buy a new one every year

    Dear Adam, I live in Pittsburgh and here we do have a better option. It is called The Original Mattress Factory and they don’t sell outside brands. Their mattress factory is local and employs local workers. Each mattress is made to order and the prices don’t change based on where you are. I refuse to believe that Pittsburgh is 100% unique in this arena. There has to be an equivalent in at least some other cities.

    In Germany there is "Stiftung Warentest" which ist totally independent and Ad Free. They testet Mattresses and best teted (second time in a row and the only one with Bestnote 1 ever) came from a Producer who only sells online in his own shop and it costs €199,- . The owner was pissed bey the Big Ripp off and refused to sell in the stores

    Laying on my purple mattress stressing about my now challenged bed superiority. I don’t care Adam! I love this thing.

    I got one of those mail order mattresses (not Casper)  and I really like it. It's firm yet squishy and was on sale for under $500. Would recommend (except I'm not saying which one so people don't think I work for them). I'm sure they're all pretty much the same anyway.

    Buy from the local hustler who sells them out of a storage unit. Paid $300 for a Queen and am still using it 15 years later.

    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.

    Uhh, the online memory foam mattresses let you try for a year. At least the one we bought from did.

    I hang upside down from the ceiling. Space saving, cost effective and I'm 4 inches taller than I used to be.

    Thank you Adam and College Humor for this one. Just in time for me too, not that there is much I can do about it I guess.

    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.

    These days you should just pick a scam that is the least of evils, I think there's no fixing it.

    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 :)
