We wanted to create this page to clear up any confusion about how we create the content of this website, what our relationships are with the manufacturers in the industry, etc.  We believe in transparency, and we want to use this page to be as transparent as possible with all aspects of our website.  We are also disclosing this information in an effort to be in accordance with the FTC’s “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising“. 16 CFR, Part 255

Receiving Free Sample Products

In some cases for our reviews, we received the product for free in exchange for our honest review (in some cases, where noted specifically, we may just provide a summary of the findings of customers elsewhere).  We proudly accept mattress and pillow samples from manufacturers and brands as it gives us the ability to write a first hand account of an actual experience with the product.  Our receipt of these products in no way ensures an improved or inflated rating, score or grade as our reviews are based on the merits of the product. The content of our reviews is our best attempt to provide an unbiased and accurate portrayal of each mattress, pillow or sleep product.  Below is a list of products we have received for free:

Affiliate Links

In some cases on our reviews you may find “affiliate links.”  Essentially what that means is that if you click the link and make a purchase, we will receive a commission.  This comes at no cost to you whatsoever.  It simply means that the origin of the sale is tracked back to our website.  We may also provide a coupon for a product that is used to track the source of a sale, for which we are then compensated. Not all companies pay a commission, so in an effort to provide full transparency for those reading the reviews, below we disclose the list of companies with whom we have a direct affiliate relationship (either through direct link or coupons we provide).  These products/companies are:

We may also may link to general e-commerce sites where we receive an affiliate commission, though we have no direct relationship with the company that manufactures the product (eg we link to the particular mattress via Amazon.com and receive a commission, though this is purely a relationship with Amazon, and not a relationship with that mattress company).  These other, general ecommerce sites include: Amazon.com

We do not allow sponsored content on our website.  All the content comes from us and we do not allow any outside party to provide content on our website.

Our Philosophy

We created this website with a few goals.  First, most consumers get very confused when trying to decide on a mattress.  Next, liking a certain mattress is a very personal choice that depends on many different factors, meaning there is certainly no one “best” mattress.  Lastly, there is a lot of marketing hype in the industry that can lead a lot of people away from making a good choice. With that in mind, we just wanted to provide information that attempts to simplify the process for you.  We try to break down what the key parts of each mattress is and whom the mattress might be good for.  Opinions on the site are our own, and should be treated as opinions, not final verdicts.  Generally I try to avoid making statements like, “this is the best mattress,” though you will see ratings for the products, sometimes broken down by category (eg best innerspring mattresses).  Again these are subjective scores and rankings which reflect my own opinions and personal biases.  That is because finding a “best” mattress depends on many different factors, like weight, sleeping position, and personal preferences.  I suggest you use the information on the site as a starting point for your own mattress selection.
