Many people assume that you must splash out on an expensive mattress to get a good night’s sleep; however, consumer organisation CHOICE Australia has found that this may not be the case after all. They tested five latex and foam mattressesalong with a traditional mattress and discovered that one of the cheaper models at $699 was just as effective as a more expensive one priced at $3,199. This information will be well received by those looking to spend less for the same quality of sleep.
Unfair Sales Tactics
The organisation explained, “You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get a good night’s sleep. This review proves bed-in-a-box mattresses – a category where brands offer one type of mattress, no cost trial periods and warranties up to fifteen years – are good value for money at $1,000.” The CHOICE report believes that some retailers are using ‘unfair sales tactics’ such as giving the products different names and making small changes to them such as changing fibres in the padding; this hard-sell put‘pressure’on customers, which can result in them paying excessive amounts.
“We foundthat a $1,000 mattress can be as comfortable over its lifetime as one priced at $3,000,” they said. However, they did add that ‘beds are incredibly subjective’.
