July 26, 2022


Shopping for a mattress? Get out your phone or laptop! That’s right, while even just a few years ago it might have seemed crazy, shopping online for everything is the new norm. You don’t have to lose sleep over making this kind of important purchase sight-unseen. Shopping for your new mattress online can actually be super easy and convenient. We’re sharing our insider tips to help you get comfortable with making a purchase from the interwebs. So, who’s ready to learn how to buy a mattress online? 

Why would I buy a mattress online?

You might be wondering why you’d even consider making this purchase online in the first place. We get it—you want to make sure your new mattress is comfortable and that means sleeping on it! But, even though you might not expect it, purchasing a mattress online delivers big rewards, without the hassle of in-person shopping.

The Pros of Online Mattress Shopping

  • Delivered to you: No need to rent a moving truck for the day—when you shop online, your new mattress will be shipped right to your doorstep! And, in the case of Allswell mattresses, it will come rolled up “burrito style” in a convenient box. No more shouting “pivot!” as you navigate your mattress up multiple flights of stairs—our packaging makes it easy to get your mattress up the stairs, down the hall, and into the room of your choice.
  • Budget-friendly: Shopping online cuts out the middle-man, so you don’t have to worry about the sky-high prices you might find in a brick and mortar store. For example, Allswell’s mattresses are affordably priced and start at just $259 for a luxurious hybrid bed mattress.
  • Pressure-free shopping: Ordering online allows you to go at your own pace, considering all the options so you get just what you need. No hovering sales people here, just a team of Allswell service Allstars ready to answer any questions you might have while you shop. (Have questions already? Get in touch with us here.)

3 Insider Tips for Buying a Mattress Online

Ok, on to the good stuff. Below are our 3 best tips to make buying a mattress online easy.

1. Reviews Are Your Friends

This may seem like a no-brainer, but reviews are there to be read! You can find answers to your questions by reading reviews from other happy sleepers. They can attest to the comfort and quality of the mattress you’re considering. So settle in with a cup of coffee (or wine, we won’t judge) and read up. Here are a few of our favorites:


“After a few weeks of sleeping on it, we still love our new mattress as much as the first night! Buy it!!!! It’s so worth it and such a great mattress.”
– Madison, sleeping on the Allswell Hybrid


“The pocket springs truly do minimize any sensation from the opposite side of the bed where your +1 might be asleep.”
–Afayed, sleeping on the the Luxe


“Excellent mattress. My son literally fell on it and in no time was asleep. …Feels just right.”
– Mayaran, sleeping on the Brick


“The instant I unpacked the Rectangular Curved Pet Bed, my 8 year old golden retriever hopped right onto it and fell in love. She rested like she had just ran three marathons and hiked Kilimanjaro. It is absolutely her favorite spot in the entire house.”
– Jercoop09, whose pup sleeps on the Allswell Curved Pet Bed (Okay, this one is technically about our pet beds, but we couldn’t resist!)

2. Know What You’re Looking For (AKA What Does Comfy Mean to You)

Pay attention to your sleep habits so you know what matters most to you in a mattress. If you know what you’re looking for, you’ll be more successful in selecting the perfect mattress for your needs. 

Not sure where to start? Your preferred sleeping position can help you choose the proper level of firmness for your comfort. For example, side sleepers may like a softer mattress, while back sleepers may prefer medium firmness. Stomach sleepers may require a firmer mattress to support their alignment while they sleep.

Sleep position, body weight, and personal preferences all play into your comfort—and your quality of sleep. Luckily, our hybrid coil spring and memory foam bed mattresses are the perfect balance between soft and firm for most sleepers. Learn more about what a hybrid mattress is and what makes them great!

3. Test It Out

Bet you didn’t see this one coming! Before you commit to any mattress, read up on the brand’s sleep trial and the return policies. Once you’ve done your research and decided on a mattress, all that’s left is to sleep on it—literally! 

Since you can’t test drive your new mattress before you buy, we offer a 100-night risk-free trial on all Allswell mattresses* so you can rest easy. If you aren’t in love, return it for a refund! For even more peace of mind, all Allswell mattresses come with a 10-year limited warranty and 3-year accident protection plans (which you can upgrade to 7 or even 10 years for a small fee if you like).
