The last time I was mattress shopping I already had a nifty, incredibly inexpensive, 22" high inflatable queen size bed in a box in my trunk. I decided to check out a large mattress store before breaking open and trying the cheap bed out but couldn't find any sales people in the store. I finally found a lady sleeping in a recliner behind a desk in the middle of the store. It was hard to wake her because she was using headphones. She finally showed me a mattress I had seen advertised and pointed out the fact that it was crap. I told her I was driving around with the new inflatable bed in the car and she advised that I was better off to keep that one. That was more than one year ago and I am very pleased that I did.

Sooooo... are there any useful pointers for mattress shoppers, or is this video simply b*tching for the sake of b*tching? Like, are we supposed to just buy the cheapest one, or what.

Mattresses really have gotten better, though. You don't see waterbeds much anymore because memory foam is almost as good, and less trouble to maintain.

I actually had a good experience with my recent mattress shopping. I went to a Mattress Firm three times. The first time, an employee showed me around the store and had me try out different mattresses. I went home to think things over. When I went back, I decided to get the Original Purple Mattress. Two guys delivered the mattress and a new platform to my third floor apartment and hauled away my old mattress and box spring (for a reasonable fee). After a few weeks, I decided the Purple wasn't working out for me. I went back Mattress Firm, at which time they had me try out different mattresses to see what might be a better fit for me. I decided on a Kingsdown Passions mattress. And even though it was priced $100 higher than the Purple, they knocked that $100 off so that I would have an even exchange. A few days later, two guys brought the Kingsdown mattress up to my apartment and took away the Purple one -- at no extra delivery/pickup charge. It was a nice experience all the way around. I'm sorry that some people have had bad mattress shopping experiences, but that just wasn't the case with me.

Adam states you can not test a mattress that you buy online first and that's false. almost every company offers a try before you buy option... Like most of his videos, some of the stuff is true but they gloss over things that are false and don't expect you to question it just in the attempt for content. shame on me for actually clicking on this video.

To be fair most mattress buyers can't be helped, when you suggest a softer mattress for a lighter person they tutt and try the one made for folks over 16st/101kgs. Its really not that difficult, you pick the one which follows your backs shape when you lie on it, if there's a gap or serious pressing move on to the next. also the memory mattresses you see on social media are complete garbage. No support and just awful to lie on.

I bought my matress for 800$ and the next year was able to get the same exact one for my mom for 400$ I would feel like I have been scammed, however they are the best sleep I have ever had and I suppose the average is having spent 600$ on each, pretty worthwhile.

It’s easy. Find the cheapest and least fancy mattresses, lay down on them, pick the comfortable one. Speak in a heavy, unidentifiable accent so that if the seller tries to confuse or sway your opinion, you can just pretend you don’t understand them and redirect them towards the cheap ones.

Its called a 20 ft rope and some 2 by 4s. The reason why getting married is called "tying the knot" is because mattresses from the 16th - 20th centuries were a piece of rope and some burlap stuffed with hay. On a couples wedding night, the knot holding the bed together would be untied, so you would have to "Tie the knot" so you didn't crash into the ground.

Adam, your hair is scaring me. Now I know it is not your fault that your hair is like that I have a friend with similar hair and I know it just happens sometimes but you really need to seek help, also if you use a mattress you are clearly under the Reptoids mind control I only need a a pillow, then again pillows might be used by the Greys as a form of hormones injector as I'm growing boobs, and no I only buy McDonald's twice a day so that can't be it. Also getting fat from McDonald's is a government conspiracy to take away my diet coke. Regards Ossi
