Moving is really the ultimate time to purge anything that isn’t working for you. Before I left San Francisco, I decided it was silly to bring my old mattress with me, I’d simply upgrade to a new one when I arrived in Seattle… that was until I realized the absurd malarky that is mattress shopping. The entire mattress store experience was totally daunting and I left feeling way more confused than before I entered. Why are there so many features now?? It was not a good scene and I was in a pinch (the kind of pinch that includes an air mattress on the floor of an empty apartment). Then a friend suggested I look into Tuft & Needle. I was kind of shocked to learn that they are actually the makers of the highest rated mattress on Amazon. They were kind enough to send one my way to test out and I’m here to tell you: if you’re in the market for a mattress, the Tuft & Needle mattress should be at the top of your list.
The mattress arrived in a way-smaller box than I imagined. Turns out they have it vacuumed-sealed for shipping, making it way easier to get the mattress to you. For me, this meant that I was able to set up my mattress all by myself, something that’s really important for us single ladies. Once I cut the wrapping, it immediately inflated to normal mattress proportions, kinda like magic.
I love the mattress so much that I wanted to share the experience with one lucky reader!

What I found most interesting after my mattress shopping experience was how all of of the added ‘features’ simply served as an excuse to jack up the price. I don’t really need ‘cooling technology’ or fancy springs that will require flipping every few months. And that doesn’t even cover the ridiculous clauses in the warranties. For example, I found that most warranties won’t cover your mattress if you don’t use an ‘approved’ base, so either one of their own box springs (read: added cost) or randomly dictated rules for your bed base. Instead, Tuft & Needle gives you a 30 night trial and a 10 year limited warranty, something that definitely helped me sleep better at night. Another of the biggest selling points is the price: a queen goes for $600, so you can be comfortable without breaking the bank. Honestly, this feels like the future of mattress shopping and I hope more people catch on. Clearly, I’m not the only one who loves the new mattress…This post is a partnership with Tuft & Needle.
