So, what is the best inexpensive memory foam mattress?
…I have talked to a lot of people about mattresses in general and memory foam mattresses and how expensive they are. Everyone was really disgusted with the prices. Most name brand “big box” store memory foam mattresses can cost from $1500 to $7000.
…WHO wants or can pay that much?????
In my lifetime I have bought many mattresses and have spent from $900 (1989) to $3000 (2015) for a bed mattress. That’s ridiculous! I know now and will never pay that much again. You simply do not have to…if you shop smart.
I’ll tell you how to shop for the best inexpensive memory foam mattress. I bought one for my wife a few years ago and paid $169 and got free shipping. That’s right! Sweet!
How to Shop for the Best Inexpensive Memory Foam Mattress
When I went shopping for a memory foam mattress on Amazon.com, I looked at mattresses that had the most reviews and then the highest number of stars. I found several that fit the criteria. The Zinus mattress had over 7,000 reviews and 4.5 stars. So then I looked at the price and it was $169.99. I bought it right then. What did I have to loose? …$169 right? Even if it was not good, I could return it and get my money back or worse case scenario, I loose $169…which is fine. BUT it turned out to be a great memory foam mattress!
What did I get for $169? A quality 12″ PLUSH memory foam mattress with a comparable warranty. It’s soft but supportive and is very “cool” to sleep on. It’s more comfortable that most memory foam mattresses that I tried in the furniture stores. I compared it to Serta, Sealy, BeautyRest and Tempur-Pedic. It’s much more comfortable.
So what memory foam mattress did I buy?
…Zinus Memory Foam Premium 12″ Mattress for $169.99. That was a few years ago and the price has risen to about $260 now.(Buy at Amazon.com) It’s still the best (6,700 reviews with 4.5 stars) and most inexpensive quality memory foam mattress you can buy anywhere. And it arrives at your doorstep in a few days. No more delivery charges from the furniture store….like $75 for delivery. Really????

I learned my lesson when buying memory foam mattresses. Big Box stores will rip you off every time. Don’t buy there!!! You are paying for company marketing/advertising, salesperson commissions, employee salaries and store/distributor overhead…Oh and profit. It really ads up to BIG $$$$$$.
What’s funny is every salesman at the furniture stores told my wife and I, that they sleep on a Tempur-Pedic $7,000 mattress. That’s a joke! …they lie. I hate sales people!
I told the guy, “There’s no way I’m paying $7,000 for a bed mattress!”. It’s a “bed mattress” for God’s sake! They used to cost $100.00. They’re just not that complicated and do not cost that much to make.
Just cut out the middleman and save money by buying online directly from the manufacturer and go for the smaller memory foam mattress manufacturers. They Big Brands are too expensive. Buy from the “Little Guy” and save money. That’s how you shop smart.
