What's About a Bed in a Box Like Casper the Friendly Boxed Mattress?

It sounds so easy and let’s face it; easy is what we all want for our lives these days is it not?

So let’s discuss Beds in a Box like Casper the Friendly mattress. 

If you read the blogs and reviews, that are not washed, you will repeatedly see that bed in a box buyers, as many brands say their purchase was too hard.


In the mattress business, a hard bed is easier to make and much less expensive than medium or soft. 

You also need to know that over 25 percent of everything in the furniture and mattress category purchased on the web gets sent back to the supplier!


I'm sure you know that if you buy a bed in a box, such as a Casper and you don't like it; you too can send it back, no charge, no cost to you!


What could be wrong or disadvantages to you about that? 

Let me tell you ;) 

1) The person who keeps the mattress pays for everyone who sends it back. So if 25 percent of all purchases are sent back, that means your kept purchase is 25 percent higher priced then need be to cover the people who send it back.

2) You are overpaying for bed in a box mattresses in the first place because the quality of the components needs to decrease as the amount of advertising and service increases to maintain the business model. 

3 The worst thing about purchasing a bed in a box "buy over the internet" model is that the people who keep the Casper or the Endy or the Bloom or any of these mattresses are paying much more for their mattress so that others can send theirs back.

So, if you keep it, you get a mattress that costs much more then if you bought a much higher quality foam mattress from me or any brick and mortar store.

The people who keep the product are the ones who generally lose in this deal.


Let's look at this scenario...

I'm building a new store, its 10 feet wide by 8 feet wide and its got one mattress in it. You walk in: I say; give me your credit card, and I’ll deliver it.

You can't touch it you can't lay on it, and you can't even see it, it's in a box. 

You would walk out: but if I tell you that same story and give you the same service on the web with a costly advertising campaign; many gladly buy it.


So here is my point.


If you keep the bed in the box mattress like the friendly Casper mattress, its way more money then it should be for the quality and longevity you receive, and if you send it back, it's very inconvenient. 


Lose, Lose. 

The better alternative is to read my blog, give Best Sleep Centre an hour of your life once every 8 to 14 years.


Get what you need, and then only 1 in 300 get sent back and exchanged.

Exchanged is the key here.

Many a product is shipped back just because mom is finished visiting or because the house needed to be staged and is now sold.

All those returns are paid by you.

If they can exchange only those people don't buy from us stay out of the process and your price is then lower then if I let anyone return for any reason.

It seems nice, but again the people who keep the product have to pay for those who return it for any and all reasons. 


If you need to swap your mattress, if bought from brick and mortar, you still can, with proper service.


You win as you are not paying for all the mattresses that were sent back by people selling homes or having grandma or uncle visit and they needed a mattress for a few days....and that does happen ;)


Looking for a great alternative to a bed in a box mattresses like the Casper?


Look at the mattresses listed here or better yet come down and lay on all of them.

The mattress is one product that the fingers should not do the buying ;)
