Who is This Site For?
This site is dedicated to people who, like us, prefer to make their own informed choices without being pressured by anybody.
Whenever shopping for a new mattress or simply looking for a useful piece of information, we want to be in charge and make up our own minds instead of relying on the biased opinion of an under-qualified salesperson (no disrespect to salespeople in general whatsoever), or having to hear the subjective experience of a single person who tried a product for a week or so.
That’s why we have a completely different approach: whenever we write about anything, we look for as much available information as we can find, then analyze it and finally summarize it for our readers.
We are living in the golden times when you face never-ending possibilities when it comes to different kinds and types of products, which has its advantages and disadvantages. The quality of some of the sleeping products is at its finest, while most others’ is questionable at best. The endless supply of brands and models promising the moon is why many people experience problems with making shopping decisions these days.
You should know that sleep products have an enormous impact on the quality of life, and you should be most careful while shopping for a mattress or sleeping accessories. Fortunately, we are here to help you out throughout the process.
Mattress Guides is dedicated to people who, like us, prefer to make their own informed choices without being pressured by anybody. Whenever you shop for a new mattress or simply look for a useful piece of information, we want you to be in charge and make up your mind with our help.
5 Reasons Why You Can Trust Us
We are a team of experts
Mattress Guides has a team of experts behind it. They are people who know the industry like no others and have researched most of the available sleeping-related products. You can count on our experience matured over more than a decade, since we started looking closely at the very first mattresses of the new generation sold exclusively online. Over these years we have seen an amazing evolution of both the offering and the quality of the serious products. We have seen it all, from the huge success stories to the many failures. We know what we are talking about.
Our unique approach
Whenever we write about anything, we look for as much available information as we can find, then analyze it, and finally summarize it for our readers. For example, when we write a review, the mattress manufacturer always wants to send us a mattress to sleep on, so that we can write about our experience. The other review sites happily accept, while we respectfully decline. You can rest assured that our reviews are based on more than just a few days of experience with the product.
More than one person’s opinion
We strongly believe that most mattress review sites are misleading, as they offer their simple personal preferences as advice. The problem is that every person is very different in terms of body structure and sleep preference in general, so the opinion of one person making a video while resting for a few minutes on a mattress is probably less helpful than the opinion of the salesman in your local mattress store.
In addition to our in-depth analysis, we believe that it’s very important to listen to the actual users of sleep products, so that we can really understand if a product is as great as advertised and what are the common praises and complaints. By listening to thousands of actual customers of the brands we review, we know so much more than what we could learn in our own little time with the product.
It’s also important to know that we keep our content updated as much as possible, even though most of the time mattress brands don’t let us know of their changes and we have to find them out on our own. We do our very best and we do it well!
We actually help people
We do our best to answer all questions we receive in the comments sections of our reviews and guides. We are very proud of the feedback we receive from readers who thank us for our personal interaction. In some cases we even helped out mattress sellers and our readers with solving ordering issues or misunderstandings. Although it’s definitely not our responsibility, we always try to give a hand when we can.
We keep the site free of charge
You should be aware that we maintain access to the knowledge we have free of charge and without many ads because we believe that everybody should be helped to make an informed decision for an important purchase like a mattress. Whenever you decide to purchase a product we reviewed, we might be paid a little commission, but it comes out of the retailer’s pocket and it’s not an extra cost to you. Your retail price remains unchanged. On the contrary, in many cases we are even able to offer an exclusive coupon to save you some more money, which is a win-win situation.
We don’t sell anything directly so we don’t have any conflicts of interest.
