Benefits of Buying a Mattress Online vs. in a Showroom

One of the primary reasons people put off replacing a mattress until well past its prime, despite being better educated about mattress life spans, is the fact that the traditional buying process is so uncomfortable. People don’t like going into stores and lying down on mattress after mattress to see what’s comfortable. It’s just not — comfortable. But, there are many more benefits (aside from personal comfort) to consider when it comes to buying a latex mattresses online rather than retail showrooms. The following are a few that really stand out.

Save Money Buying Online

The Internet doesn’t cost nearly as much as a fancy showroom for showcasing mattresses. Mattress manufacturers pass the savings on to you. Additionally, websites don’t have a mountain of commission-based sales reps trying to sell you the higher priced model. This adds even more to your savings.

Easier Comparisons

It’s easier to compare apples to apples features when shopping for mattresses online. You can look for a wide range of criteria by which to make your mattress purchasing decision and compare mattresses that offer the features most important to you. Comparing features like firmness, comfort, materials, certifications, thickness, adjustability, and more is much easier on the World Wide Web than it is in stores across town or even in the same mattress store. Online latex mattress reviews make comparisons even easier. In addition, sitting down in front of a computer and taking time to really study things out and weigh the pros and cons is extremely useful compared to buying on a whim or emotion.

Better Owner Satisfaction – Sometimes

A recent study indicates that people who purchased a latex mattress online were generally much more satisfied with their purchase than those who purchased on in a retail showrooms. Adjustable air mattresses also received a more favorable after-purchase reaction from Internet sales, though only slightly better than showroom purchases. Innerspring and memory foam mattress purchases, by contrast, received slightly better satisfaction among owners who made the purchases online.

No Pressure

Showroom sales staff often work on commission. They don’t make money unless they make sales. Then there are mattress companies that offer bonus commissions for people who sell more of certain models within a specified period of time. When this happens, buyers get a lot of pressure to purchase mattresses that are best for the needs of the sales staff rather than what’s best for the needs of the person buying the mattress. On the Internet, on the other hand, you’ll find facts and information while being left to make your own decision.

No Haggling

On the Internet the price you see is the one you get. You don’t have to guess if you’re supposed to bargain or negotiate. There are no worries about offending the other party or paying more than you could have gotten away with paying. It’s a simple, straightforward process that takes a lot of pressure away from the mattress buying process.

It doesn’t matter what kind of mattress you’re in the market for, the odds are good that buying online delivers distinct benefits that will help you enjoy a better overall mattress buying experience rather than buying a mattress in a retail showroom.
